A modern vintage nursery, the cutest photo book idea ever, chevron onesies, a sophisticated boys’ room, and the sweetest newborn picture EVER!

Scroll down to check out our weekly Pinterest inspiration post featuring all things pertaining to life with baby — and be sure to follow us on Pinterest for more inspirations!

Once again, my chevron obsession has gotten the best of me. But let’s face it — these pink and gray chevron onesies are adorable! Get the scoop on how to make these yourself with the DIY chevron onesies tutorial from Finley and Oliver.

I also spotted this cool boys’ room from an Elle Decor Lookbook designed by Steven Gambrel. It’s modern. It’s sophisticated — and probably not too expensive to recreate with some knock-offs and a little creativity.

Lots of couples have a furry baby before a “real” baby comes into the picture. I love the idea of capturing a love-filled moment between your pet and your newborn. This picture taken by Hanna Mac is truly worth a thousand words!

I’m a color lover but if a white nursery is something that you’re dreaming of , look no further than this crisp white nursery pinned from a Norwegian interior design magazine. It’s elegant yet playful — and will transition very easily into a functional toddler room.

This is the cutest photo book idea ever! If you follow me on Facebook, you might remember that I was asking for some photo book publisher recommendations — because I’m tired of having all of our photos on the computer! But I’ve had a lot of trouble figuring out how to lay them all out. This keepsake personalized alphabet book from Modern Parents Messy Kids has given me some inspiration.

  1. oh my gosh, that picture of the baby boy and his puppy dog is so unbelieveably cute! and if J was still tiny I would definitely do that chevron onesie project…it would be such a fun baby shower activity

  2. I found your site on Pintrest and I love it! If you’re still looking for photobook publishers, my favorite is Mixbook. I just used them for my wedding ablum and some brag books for our parents and grandparents!

  3. Where is the link to the publisher? I could not find it on facebook or any of the links on the post.

  4. I thought I’d give you a couple more sites for photo books. Heritage Makers – I like to use for one reason they store all projects, if your dog tries to eat it send it back with a letter and you can get it re-printed for 1/2 price. I really like Paper Coterie they have some really fun books to drag your pics into. Good luck! I’ve found I use more than one depending on the project and what i’m using it for :).

  5. Your blog is just wonderful, im 12 weeks pregnant and looking for ideas for the little one’s nursery. I’ve surfed the net through and through and it seems like the best things are all collected here as I find myself coming back again and again! Thank you for such a wonderful website and all the inspiration that you gave me. The chevron oneses are adorable! Im definitely having a go at them! Id also love to get an invitation for the Pinterest if its not a trouble. THank you :)

  6. Love love love this book!! Beautiful! I did a custom ABC book from a template SHutterfly has a few years ago. It was nice – but I like yours better. If you’re still looking for book printers consider artscow. Their prices are decent, and I’ve never seen anything rival their quality (because their deluxe books are actually board books – great for babies and toddlers). You can see the quality here (with a few I’ve had printed):


  1. […] and so the day that we have a real baby we’ll need to recreate this picture I found on Chic & Cheap Nursery. When I stumbled upon this earlier this week I pinned it to my “Bebe” board and in less […]
