Tiny Tot Thursday (new series)

image

This new series will happen every Thursday where I will highlight cool decor or design interior & party inspiration for the kids. Love how this bunk bed has a tailored canopy. Too cool and clever.

A pink and navy bunny rabbit themed girl’s room…

image

I love the gallery wall of bunny profiles. Too adorable and easy to do for people like me who can draw. The navy offsets the pink so it isn’t overwhelmingly girly. The wallpaper is my favorite though.

Love the molding added to the closet armoires. See how hardware can change a closet door’s appearance here.

Snails and squirrels and other woodland animals in this cutesy rug leaves a soft area for a tot to play.

Purple & cheetah upholstery, zebra wallpaper in a nursery…

image

That rhymed and I wasn’t trying. Summer Thornton has a few designs that caught my eye while browsing Marcus Design. Usually I shy away from heavy wood but the purple and cheetah fabric makes it too good to resist. Taking a look that is traditional and pairing with modern up to date patterns and colors can prevent any older home from feeling old-timey or stuffy…

image

What I like about this room is the headboard, the layering of pillows, the bedding and the coral pops of color. Usually you see benches in front of beds but I like the chairs and small table as a nice spot to take in some coffee or catch the news…

Then there is this….a nicely designed nursery with furniture pieces that will grow with the child. You can easily put everything minus the crib in other areas of the home and it’ll work. Despite using such adult pieces, the room doesn’t lack any of the cutesy elements that baby rooms have. The popular zebra wallpaper can go along with any animal themed room. Using rustic fall hues and blue is more of a modern room palatte. Durable leather poufs and velvet upholstery is soft for the baby but still very stylish.

Some inspiration from my favs….

My girl Adrienne asked how do you organize mags? I keep mine in two big baskets that sit on the floor in front of my coffee table from pier 1. I started to buy more but don’t want to aide my obsession so yeah. Lol. Come closer. *looks around*… *whispers* don’t tell anyone but I also own tv dinner stands. (Don’t judge as gran’ma bought them for me when I moved on my own 8 years ago). They come really handy. Not for eating but to pile more mags on, the ones I’m currently reading. But they stay in rotation for about 2 months. I eventually cut out or snatch what I want and toss them or give them away.

Alexandra decided to use her lucite table for something other than what she previously used it for. I love all the little detials to make her vanity area a cute spot. here you can read all about it. I also blogged about my admiration for her home before here. Here are some other girlie vanity ideas…

Then leave it to my girl Beth to have me blurting out “girl stop” & “wow”. It happens sometimes moreso with jewelry than interiors but this post had a ton of things I would rock….

Interiors + recipes = Tiffany’s blog. She takes such pretty photography of her process. I LOVE to cook and go to my parents to do so 3x a week. Though I dislike grocery shopping and finding ingredients I’m unfamiliar with, I love trying new recipes. To have pics of the step by step process is important to me & my tastebuds that water after looking. Here is her recipe to espresso chocolate chip brownie cookies. Thank me later…

This pretty image came from Londa’s site. Red is great paired with earth tones like camel…

Betcha you haven’t seen baby furniture like this! Linda finds the most interesting things. Here is where that came from…

Lastly Nicole asked if hotel decor or vacation plays a big factor? I personally strive for affordable especially if I’m only in the hotel to rest my head. That said, it has to be visually pleasing to my eyes. I can’t do dated ugly hotels. It has to be photo worthy. That’s part of the thrill and fun for me when I travel. It’s even why I have a series Hotel Indulgences which I will add to soon. I always like when bloggers do link love posts so figured I’d play copy cat. It shows support to those who give and hopefully you’ll find new blogs you didn’t know about…

Celeb Homes: Ivanka Trump

image

Complete opposite of her dad’s aesthetic, Ivanka has penthouse decorated with nice finishings but with a sense of liveable comfort. One may ask why disrupt the view of the floor to ceiling windows with a dresser but I think it’s a way to keep some privacy…

image

The monochromatic room is gender neutral and calming. Love the wallpapered ceiling…

image

This metallic mural is a pretty backdrop for the foyer…

image

I guess when I think of Ivanka, I wouldn’t envision this as her workspace. I do like the bold hue of the desk. And the cubed bookshelving is nicely styled and functional.

image

Picking up where the desk left off is a grid styled gallery wall of the same color. I like it a lot.

Color Schemes: Chartreuse, Navy & White…

image

I know this is similar to the post I did on sour apple and blueberry hues but…since neon colors are all the rage right now, I figured I’d show one paired with a neutral…

Hot Air Balloon kids party & decor ideas for a nursery…

hot air balloon party

hot air balloon party by designindulgences on polyvore.com

 On my bucket list, I want to experience a hot air balloon ride. I’m all for unique childrens parties and I think this theme would be cute. Recently I went to Michael’s and in their dollar section they had several hot air balloon items including note cards and invitations. Those random bits can easily be used as party favors for guests…

I also think it’s cute to have as a voyage theme. Typically we see airplanes used for bon voyage themes but hot air balloons are indeed a mode of transportation so why not take on this route versus the typical? You can add luggage trunks and maps or globes to add to the overall effect and still keep it child friendly…
