There's something special about knitted items for babies.

The right clock can be a great focal point in a nursery. Uncommon has some nice options in a range of colors. The shop also sells beautiful mirrors, side tables, chandeliers, and wall art. Check them out.
These are the perfect antidote to boring bookends. All are weighted to hold up even the heaviest books.

With so many cute and cuddly stuffed animals available, it's hard to choose which ones to get for baby. Mary Meyer Earthmates are unique--made from recycled plastic bottles (10 bottles per animal), regenerative bamboo fabrics, and organic stuffing. Adorable and eco-friendly. Available at Wild Dill.
My husband has very strong opinions on design and decor. Fortunately, we have similar tastes, so it's not usually an issue. We don't see eye to eye on the mobile for the nursery, though. He found a cute wooden animal mobile that he loves. I like his choice but feel the scale is off--too small for the wall and crib. I think we need something much larger, like one of these mobiles from Adrift. Plus, I think a bigger mobile will be more interesting for our little guy to watch. Hopefully, we come to a compromise soon.
We are down to finishing touches on the nursery. Sneak preview coming soon.
Maria from Layers of Meaning posted pictures of her completed nursery. (Remember her inspiration board?) Check out the results. And isn't Jack the cutest?
I enjoy Apartment Therapy's Home Tours. They recently featured a modern, affordable, and sustainable home built by a young couple with the help of a really cool architectural firm. I'm a big fan of the nursery they created for their son Walt, and I love that it fits seamlessly with the rest of their awesome space.
