Today’s rocking chairs are stylish and nothing like your grandmother’s. Some of them have hidden rockers so they look just like regular chairs. I created a list of some that are modern and some that are traditional to outfit your baby’s room.
Lighting does wonders and you shouldn’t skimp on it because it is a baby’s room. I think adding a fun fixture is the exclamation point to any nursery.
When I saw this on Pinterest, I knew I had to make this a Tiny Tot Thursday post. The parents didn’t want to move when they found out they were expecting. Instead, they got out their thinking caps and made some creative choices that can benefit anyone.
The hanging bassinet is quite genius and visually pretty amongst the exposed brick wall. The parents used the height of the ceiling to their benefit by working up and using vertical wall space for storage. It’s something I suggested in a closet storage post you can read about here.
I love the numbered bins on the floating shelves. They also raised their bed to be able to utilize underbed space more efficiently. You can see the rest of the details and more pics
I am so in love with vintage carnival and circus themed parties, showers and themed bedrooms. This one is so adorable and rustic with bales of hay, wooden crates, etc…
I am a sucker for marquee lights and I think the flowers out of the popcorn boxes are genius for centerpieces. There are so many fun ideas you can do for this type of party or shower like hiring a magician, clown, face painter or caricature artist….
Lovely roman shades and pretty hot air balloons give a whimsical yet classy carnival spin for this themd nursery….
Wants and Wishes Designs offers a pretty softened palette of circus party supplies. How cute is this clown lollipop holder?
I love this centerpiece idea to give a food display or table some height. Using tickets and boxes of animal crackers or cracker jacks to make a pyramid can also double as favors for kids at the end of the party. Buy plastic animals to paint or sprinkle with glitter to top the centerpieces and cakes…
Use fabric to form “curtains” around backdrops for a photo booth or against the wall….
Cribs. A piece of furniture that’s necessary but one that is only needed a short period of time. Unless you plan to broaden your family, you can always take some time to transform it into something else…
There are so many ways to repurpose a crib and get more bang for your buck. Kids grow so fast and when they are no longer toddlers, you can still get use out of that crib. Some of the ideas are as simple as literally flipping a crib upside down.
I really like the school desks painted in a hip and modern way. Fun pattern and colors will keep children engaged in homework and learning…
A cute tween room with a grown up feel. Using adult headboards and lighting will make it easier to transition as she grows older. It’ll also prove cheaper for the parent as they won’t have to buy new furniture every few years….
I like the way the circus canopy striped ceiling….
The crown canopies make the rooms of Restoration Hardware‘s baby & child. Just the right amount of charm for baby royalties. The collection uses classic elements found in adult spaces like chandeliers and tufted upholstery and some industrial styled decor.
Not only are tufted cribs visually beautiful but the extra upholstery is sort of like baby proofing as it would soften the blow if a child falls against it.
I like the army styled teepee. Teepees are just so much fun. They literally bring out the kid in you.
Some items are quite pricey because it’s a luxury indulgence but the pieces of furniture are beautiful enough to pass down generations or continue to grow with the child. Some items have a historical aged appearance that are timeless and truly a refreshing classic take on children room designs.
I was reading one of my favorite sites Clutch Mag and came across an article about how untidy homes can have an effect on your well being and cause stress. The results of cleaning, even as little as 20 minutes, can make you calmer as you won’t have the cluttered viewpoints that may keep you anxious.
You ever feel extremely tired but can’t quite go to bed because you think of all the things you need to do? It’s similar to that. I know if my living room coffee table gets cluttered with drinking glasses, mail and magazines, I won’t be able to enjoy the tv show I’m watching. So I usually take a few minutes to tidy up as much as I can. Even if you are short on time, having decorative baskets and ottomans with lids are great ways to do a quick sweep over by dumping random things in it. At a later time you can then go thru the items and organize. At least momentarily it will look neater. So give it a try one night before. As quickly as you gather as much as you can and hide it in a bin or basket. Guranteed you will sleep & feel better.
