My First Cubby From Little Partners

It’s amazing how preschool teachers are able to manage each day with a classroom full of tots when you’re at home tearing our hair out with just one or two. How do they do it? A lot of it is routine and allowing kids to do as much as they can on their own. You can bring home that type of preschool routine and encourage independent responsibility with the My First Cubby from Little Partners.

With six open storage areas and hooks, kids will store their own belongings and will be able to transition more independently from home to going out and back to home again.

This doesn’t mean you’ll never have to tell them 20 times to put their shoes on, but at least they’ll know where their shoes are?

Ferm Living Kids Spring Summer 2017

There is so much cool new stuff to show you from Ferm Living’s 2017 Spring/Summer Kids collection.

I’ll start with the big stuff, and work my way down from there. So last year, Ferm Living started to grow beyond home decor into furnishings, and this year the furniture has spread down into the children’s collection!

The Little Architect furnishings include a table, chairs, bench, desk and storage pockets (large and small) that attach to the desk or table.

In these furniture photos, you can also see the Braided Lampshades (Medium above and Tall below).

The Little Architect collection comes in 5 muted colors– Bordeaux, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Rose and Gray.

Shown with the chairs above is one of my favorite new pieces, the ABC Wall Deco. This is the most fun and kid-friendly woven wall hanging I’ve yet come across!

Also perfect for the nursery wall is this adorable Rabbit Mirror!

You may also consider the simple hanging Kids Growth Chart. It is available in Rose, Mint and Off-White.

If you like the Braided Lampshades, you’ll love the Braided Baskets as well.

I was excited to see the two new wallpaper patterns. Swan comes in Rose and Gray.

Terrazzo wallpaper is also available in Rose and Gray and can be used well beyond the nursery. And you thought Terrazzo was just for the floor!

There are lots of cuddly new textiles for spring. The Stripy Snake (blue, rose) and Blanket (blue, rose) make a perfect pair as decor and are wonderful to give as gifts.

If you like the Terrazzo pattern, you might love the Knot Bean Bag in Terrazzo Rose or Terrazzo Blue.

The beautifully textured Popcorn Bolsters (Dusty Rose, Dusty Mint and Gray) and Pillows (Dusty Rose, Dusty Mint and Gray) can be mixed in with any of the new kids bedding.

And speaking of bedding, last season’s Seaside and Party patterns are now available as bedding. Check out the Cloud Lamp in Dusty Rose as well.

There are also more neutral Milkyway bedding patterns in Rose and Cream as well as solid color bedding that can be mixed in with your favorite patterns or used on their own.

Finally, to add to last season‘s Seaside and Party dining collections, you’re going to want to grab the Seaside

Ferm Living Seaside Dinner Mat

and Party Dinner Mats. These really round out the sets.

The play mat bags are the latest additions to the 3sprouts product line. The storage bags unfold into a play mat, and when you’re done, you can just fold it all up and store it away.

The bags come in Hedgehog, Whale, and Elephant, and retail for $25.

My Modern Nursery #118: Green Gone Wild Inspiration Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

We’ve had a great time this month exploring how to use Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017 in the modern nursery so of course I had to try Greenery out as a wall color in preparation for the new year. I look forward to adding a lot more green into my own home this coming year and so far I’m off to a great start with new house plants!

Lullaby Paints has a custom wall color option that allows you to specify any paint shade while still enjoying non-toxic Lullaby Paints and avoiding dangerous chemicals, so it’s easy to match any Pantone shade. This year however, I found that Lullaby Paint’s Green Gone Wild was remarkably close to “Greenery”– so close that I’ve found representations of Greenery” that are further off from each other than from the shade I’ve chosen below.

Do not be scared to try a rich green shade on the walls.  I’ve had a bright green room for one of my kids and loved it the entire 7 years we lived in the house. If such a saturated color seems overwhelming, try painting just one accent wall. Remember that kids will outgrow the nursery after just a few short years so it’s a great place to have a lot more fun with the decorating! You can always change things up as the kids get older.
