You know one year is coming to an end when Pantone announces the next color of the year. Is it December already?! For 2014, they’ve chosen Radiant Orchid, “a captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones” that “emanates great joy, love and health.” I can’t think of better wishes for the coming year. If you’d like to add this “expressive, creative and embracing purple” to your nursery, here are my best suggestions.

I’m so excited about the new Miller range from Olli & Lime. Now available for pre-order, this modern crib bedding collection is a fresh new option for your nursery. Yellow and gray have been a trend over the past couple years, but this stone shade and rich, golden yellow are a warm version of the popular color combination.
Coordinating products and accessories will be added soon. I can’t wait to see the nurseries that are inspired by the Miller range.
This is a nursery board that I worked on in collaboration with ROLLherSTROLLER, a baby gear and stroller reviewer and lovely mother of two. She’s putting together her baby girl’s nursery and I was excited to help. With coral and mint as our jumping off point, we worked together to come up with this feminine scheme for her modern little lady. I can’t wait to see photos of the finished space.

Happy Birthday to my original modern baby. He’s 8 years old today! Yes, I’ve been obsessed with modern cribs etc… for more than 8 years now.
Turn the 8 on its side and I love him to ∞!
For pretend play purposes, not much beats a loveable doll and the accessories to go along with it. Both my boys loved their baby doll and we’ve only just gotten rid of the plastic toy stroller we had for him. I could never getting rid of the doll, Doobie, though.
If your little girls or little boys don’t yet have a baby doll to love, these dolls and accessories from The Land of Nod will make an amazing grand finale gift this holiday season.
