I love the Jigsaw line from Seed Furniture. How cute would these be in the right space? All of Seed Furniture's kid line can be fully customized, reconfigured, and repurposed to your specifications.
Sorry for the disappearing act last week. Life got hectic, so I took a break from blogging. Hope you had a great weekend.
Congrats to Emily Henderson on winning The Homies for Best Home Design and Inspiration Blog. She got my vote. Design Mom recently interviewed her, and she gave some great advice for first-time moms. The part on helping your man be the best dad he can be is brilliant: "Try everything you can to empower your partner as a father, to make him feel like he is good at it as you are, as often as possible... Even if you think you know, try to learn it again with him so he doesn’t feel stupid and scared and then you are annoyed and feel like you can’t leave the house or he isn’t going to be able to feed or bathe your baby. It’s a cyclical process: Brian is a good dad because he feels like he’s a good dad. He feels confident and that he knows what he’s doing and therefore wants to do it even more. Most people don’t like to do what they aren’t good at, so help him be good at being a dad without making him feel stupid and he will want to do it more." So true.
We had gorgeous 70 degree weather yesterday. Snow is in the forecast later this week. These temperature swings are typical of March weather around here. Fortunately, the cold doesn't last long and it's usually sunny. This room reminds me of Spring. I love the cloud pillow.
I'm helping a friend decorate the nursery for her baby girl due in June. She wanted a girly and fabulous space, and it's certainly shaping up to be just that. I spotted this Ikea hack and sent it to her. She loved the idea (in black and pink, no neon green). We are hunting for some black and white prints to go in these inexpensive Ikea frames. I can't wait to see the final painted product.
Looking for a clock for your baby space? Or your grown up space? Society 6 has a huge selection. I like a lot of them.
Colorado must be rubbing off on me, because I'm a sucker for tree prints. Textiles. Wallpaper. Whatever. I spotted this stenciled room over on Remodelista, and I wanted to share it with you. Great step by step instructions here.
Happy first Monday in March. Hope you enjoy the LA home of actress Ione Sky:
Moroccan rugs are everywhere right now. I decided to jump on the bandwagon for our living room, and I'm so glad I did. It's one of my new favorite things. If you are interested in a genuine Beni Ourain, check out Beyond Marrakech. Danielle was amazingly helpful and patient with my countless questions. My carpet arrived in just 4 days all the way from Morocco. I was hesitant to buy something without seeing it in person first, but it's gorgeous and so soft. I haven't forgotten about the requests to see pictures of my new home. Coming soon...

Isn't this a lovely room? This would be a great solution for a cabin where you want to maximize sleeping spaces.
