From the cute and functional honeycomb shelves to the minibus camper wooden toys, this little shop has unique items for the nursery that you can’t find anywhere else. And toys from Handmade Riot on Etsy are made from 100% repurposed wood. I love that.
The honeycomb shelves come individually fully assembled, but you can pick your configuration, making this set perfect for small and large spaces alike.
Slate grey floating honeycomb shelves (set of 5) ($150)
Turquoise floating honeycomb shelves (set of 3) ($95)
Wooden elephant pull toy ($35)

Thanks to Little Auggie for sponsoring this nursery design and letting me play around with the Robot March bedding collection. The robots are fun to work with but I could just as easily have ignored them completely and just used the pattern to add a hint of color in a gray nursery.
So what do you think? Does it need more robots, less robots or did we get it just right?
Well, it’s giggle’s exclusive Oeuf Arbor Classic Crib.

With a little help from our sponsor Babyli.st, over the next few months we’re going to be helping you out with your baby registry. I think a baby bouncer / lounger / rocker (whatever you want to call it) is a great place to start. When you bring baby home, you’ll probably discover that you need a place to put him or her down safely. One of my jobs is keeping track of the best baby seats on the market, and these are my top 10 choices for 2013.
1- Nuna Leaf- $220
The Leaf is really cool because in addition to its beautiful design, it has a gentle swaying motion that requires just a little push to get it moving for several minutes. This is the one that would make it onto my baby registry this year.
3- Bloom Coco Stylewood and Plexistyle Loungers- $195
The Coco loungers are hands down the most beautiful baby loungers. These are the #1 choice for style. You can chose wood or plexiglass frames and the seat covers come in a variety of colors.
4- 4Moms Mamaroo- $240
The Mamaroo is the ultimate baby gear gadget. The seat features special rocking motions to appease the most finicky baby.
5- Maclaren Universal Rocker- $105
The Universal Rocker from Maclaren is lightweight and easy to transport. This is a great one to take along for travelling.
6- Baby Home Onfour Bouncer- $150
The Onfour comes in 8 great colors. It is lightweight and easy to travel with. Its unique feature is the front wheels which make it easy to move while baby is strapped inside.
7- Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper- $100
The 3-in-1 Rocker Napper easily converts from a rocker to a little bassinet in case baby falls asleep while in their seat. This is a great multi-tasker.
8- Apollo Bouncer from mamas & papas- $100
The Apollo Bouncer is among the least expensive but features a fun and modern design. Music book insert plays lullabies and can be removed and used separately.
9- Chicco I-Feel Rocker- $100
The I-Feel Rocker has a stylish design with curved wood pieces. The seat is a simple rocker with mobile but folds flat for storage.
10- Peg-Perego Sdraietta Melodia Bouncer- $220
The Sdraietta Melodia is hard to pronounce but easy to use. It can rock or be placed in stationary mode. It features a removable sun canopy and colorful toy bar.

One of my favorite parts of the entire space is the beautiful “Roxy” chair from onefortythree- $425
Hopefully they’ll make this rocker for a while because I’d really love to add it to my list of modern rocking chairs. For $425 it’s the least expensive on the list. I’d get yours now because when they wise up, they’re bound to double the price! The brass swing arm lamp in the room is also from onefortythree and the least expensive brass swing arm lamp I could find online at $145.
Not pictured: Ikea Ribba picture ledges as book display shelves- $10 each and some of the stylish books on display include:
Feel free to judge the books by their covers, because the covers are works of art!
So what’s your favorite part of this special nursery?
Dash’s Los Angeles nursery is clean, simple and beautiful– everything the perfect modern nursery should be. Dash’s parents Max and Margaux Wanger turned creative control of their little one’s room over to their friends at The Animal Print Shop, and with results like this, I wouldn’t hesitate hesitate to turn my entire home over to them!
The room features a limited edition print of The Animal Print Shop’s latest baby, “Baby Elephant” as a striking (and adorable) focal point.
We’re going to have to talk more about that amazing “Roxy” chair from OneFortyThree another day…
…and just stop drooling over the “fauxdenza” storage unit / changing table because if you want one you’re going to have to make it yourself!
I think this nursery illustrates that you can really create an incredible high end look in a small space by investing in just a few statement pieces. In this case the artwork, rocker, lamp and Eames accessories prove that less is more.
