We finally picked out a rug for the nursery. We purchased something inexpensive and indestructible from West Elm, similar to little man's Ikea rug (seen here and here). I love the look of vintage tribal rugs in nurseries, though. It would have been fun to splurge on one with a great pattern. Like one of these:
It's hard for me to narrow down my favorite things about this room. I love the wallpaper, the chair, the light, that gorgeous crib, the textiles, the layered rugs.
There are so many beautiful things to look at in this room. The white walls make a perfect backdrop for lots of texture, a nicely styled bookcase, and sweet accessories.
I co-hosted a baby shower brunch over the weekend, and it was all pink pink pink. I have to admit that I might be changing my opinion on the color these days. It used to be so not me, but I'm a convert, especially when it comes to these five things:
1) This room (I love the rest of the house too):
2) This rug (to recreate the look above):
3) A skirt for mommy:
5) One of my favorite cribs, but it won't be available in this shade for long:
If you are hunting for a rug for your nursery or playroom, Armadillo & Co has a great selection of practical rugs for kiddos:
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...

I'm a little giddy about the debut of the brand Vividgrey. Handcrafted textiles, lighting, and furnishings are made to order from a workshop in Vienna. They describe their products as "modern heirloom furnishings for a home shared between children and grown-ups... balancing the imagination and vividness of children with a refined, sophisticated adult world." Music to my ears. I love it all, especially those web curtains.
Did you notice the beautiful crochet rug in the first nursery I posted yesterday? After a little research, I found the source: La De Dah Kids. Love these mats.
