A neon-infused kids’ space, a DIY keepsake frame idea, an awesome electrical hardware find, a custom monogram pillow  and a neutral gray nursery!

Neon is the trend of the season. It’s popping up everywhere from fashion to interior design — and boy, do we love it! Neon decor is funky and fun, and goes so well in kids’ spaces. Check out this room designed by Jenni Juurinen, a set designer from Finland. The neon pink lockers and the neon green and blue storage bins really pop against the white wall! Two very distinct pieces — from very different periods — the side table and wire chair, were given the same shade of yellow to create a harmonious seating area.

Linen Frames for the Nursery
Frame it, baby! We recently shared with you some adorable gallery wall ideas for the nursery, and then I came across this image buried in one of my Pinterest boards and I thought, “Well this is a great idea!” These linen display frames are from Pottery Barn Kids (unfortunately, they’re no longer available) but you could definitely make a few at home! You would probably need a cork board with a white frame, a linen rectangle cut to size, and pins.

Receeded Electrical Outlet

This is pretty awesome. It’s a recessed electrical outlet ($14), so your plugs don’t stick out and you can place your furniture directly up against the wall. I want one — or twelve!

Custom Monogram Pillow

Monogram pillows are pretty popular in nurseries and kids rooms. There are lots of wonderful options out there for personalized pillows but it’s always so much more fun to make it yourself if you can! Amy from Positively Splendid made this custom monogram pillow for her porch and she’s sharing all the details on how she did on her site.

Neutral Nursery
The talented girls over at Sissy + Marley have done it again! Their latest nursery design project was featured on Little.Lovely. yesterday, and guess what? We love it! The gray and white nursery is modern, fresh, and eco-friendly — filled with custom artwork, Oeuf furniture and a Monte rocker.
