Tiny Tot Thursdays: Reclining Gliders…

image
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.

Tiny Tot Thursdays: brown pouffes in nurseries

image

While reading Erin’s debate on whether to do a bold or neutral nursery, I noticed something in several of the ones featured and thought I’d search for more. Moroccan poufs are nothing new but I still love them no matter how trendy they are. Seeing different variations of brown designed ottomans and in different textures is a great look for a child’s room or nursery. It gives the right amount of warmth to a room to compliment any brass or gold fixtures and accessories.

image
It also looks incredibly chic in a white, cream and neutral palette. Most importantly, it can easily get swapped out of the kids room and get placed in an adult setting.

image

To me it’s best to pick furnishings that can truly grow with a child along with something that can easily transition to other rooms should the child grow up to want a Disney themed room. Notice some of the storage baskets and rugs….

Tiny Tot Thursday: preparing for a baby in a 400 sq ft NYC apt

image

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.

image

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.

image

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

Tiny Tot Thursdays: repurposed cribs

image

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…

image

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.

Tiny Tot Thursday: restoration hardware baby and child

image

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.

image

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.

image

I like the army styled teepee. Teepees are just so much fun. They literally bring out the kid in you.

image

image

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.

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.

image

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.
