mermaid baby room inspiration (Sources listed below.)   I’m loving this bright and happy inspiration for today!  I came across the Hooray Today etsy shop. and I’m loving all the bright and quirky prints!  So fun – especially the kitty cone.  Also, who is going to purchase that awesome vintage Copenhagen travel poster?  Comment if you get it and send me pics of how perfect it looks in your space – wish I could snag it!  It’s also quite a statement piece at 24″ x 39″, so it would really anchor a room!!  Seriously, someone needs to grab it!

engineer baby nursery inspiration

(Links are listed below – still working out a couple of issues – apologies!)  I recently received a request for an engineering/technical/blueprint inspired room – for a girl!  I thought it to be a really fun challenge, and here is the result.  It could easily be used for a boy, but I really love the fresh feel of the true blue colors and white and I think it’s a really bright and happy space for a girl.

thundercat nursery inspiration (Note: Sources are listed below – having some technical issues!) Have y’all seen that the new Land of Nod collection has just been released?  It’s perfectly awesome, per usual, and I can’t want to share some collaborative projects here soon.  For today, here is a little inspiration featuring a few of their new items – I’m pretty crazy over that new rocker.  It looks super comfy, and a high back is essential, in my opinion!  It’s the perfect blend of modern + traditional, so it would fit well in any decor, and last quite awhile.

first birthday party ideas

It’s hard to believe, but my adorable squishy little nephew Henry will be turning 1 in just a couple of weeks!  I’m working with my sister on putting together a sweet little ice cream party for him.  Henry’s family also just moved into a new house, so it’s a celebration of his big day and a way to welcome friends over to their new home!  Above is some of the inspiration, and we’re using these adorable invites from Minted!  Love those stripes.

Lyn"The invites are so cute. And I love the sample had my daughter's name Rory! "

traditional baby room ideas

Today on BHG style spotters I posted a primary hued nursery.  It’s fun, and feels nostalgic.  Go here to find the links – how fun is that banana lamp?!  Reminds me of Alison’s super cute banana bash for her son Rad’s first birthday party.
