Unique Felted Mobiles

There are theme mobiles and felt mobiles but Gulnara Kydyrmyshova does themed felt mobiles really well.

I love how the pieces hang off the large palm in the Pink Flamingo Mobile.

Owls and stars are common mobile motifs, but Gulnara’s Owls and Stars Mobile has a fresh and original look.

And for something really original, check out the Taco Dreams Mobile.

You can find these at uncommon goods for $48 each (and be sure to search for the matching booties!).

My Modern Nursery #119: Miss Rumphius Nursery Inspiration Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

My newest nursery nursery series sponsored by Lullaby Paints is inspired by the art and illustrations of some of my favorite children’s books. The first title I selected is Miss Rumphius, written and illustrated by Barbara Cooney. Cooney paints an inspirational tale of a woman, who after a full life of work, adventure and travel, finds a way to make a lasting mark by making the world a more beautiful place.

With a subtly colorful palette, the atmosphere of the book is warm and lush and rich. You can feel warm sunshine, cool breezes and smell the lupine fragrance in the air.

We’ve captured the colors of the book in this sweet nursery space and infused it with the spirit Miss Rumphius’s adventures. Miss Rumphius made the world more beautiful, and you can start baby off in a beautiful environment of her own.

Adorable Animal Nightlights

I love browsing through Anthropologie whenever I’m near one, and I tend to gravitate to their little corner of treasures for kids.

I’ve discovered this cute collection of “Peaceful Animal Night Lights,” which includes your choice of giraffe, elephant or whale. ($32)

In addition to stackers, there are a few new puzzles to consider for your toy box. Fred and Frida Robot Puzzles have pieces printed on the front and with a chalkboard back. After toddlers have mastered the puzzles, they can get creative and design their own robots! ($30 each)

Nursery Collections from Bunny & Clyde

If you’re looking for something really different and unique (and understand that the price will reflect that), the nursery pieces from Bunny & Clyde may be what you’ve been looking for.

Coming to you from Ireland, these handcrafted pieces are made of solid wood. Using natural materials, each piece is unique, non-toxic and FSC certified.

The incredible Harrison Nursery Set is unlike anything you’ve seen before. With a mid-century modern inspiration, you can choose the European Ash version or the duotone Ash/Walnut combination shown below. I’m crazy about the rounded opening of the sides and the amazing v-shaped legs.

Harrison-Room-4

The Coco Nursery Set features beautiful European Ash with a painted base and box to contrast with the natural grain of the wood. The geometric detailing on the sides really makes the Coco Crib something very special. You can order the cribs (cot) and dressers (station) separately.

Coco-Room-4-e1461327839912

With additional accessories, both the Harrison and Coco cribs are designed to last by converting to attractive toddler beds and day beds as well.

Harrison-toddler-bed-12Coco-toddler-bed-1

The Rosaline Rocking Chair is designed to work beautifully with either nursery collection. You can select from ten different fabric options.

Rosaline-Rocker-31

For shipping to the US on these nursery pieces, you do need to contact the company ahead of time and get the cost.

If you like Bunny & Clyde, you may also like Kalon Studios. The Coco Crib reminds me a bit of the Io Crib.
