Geometric Patterns Galore

After my last post on spots & dots, I thought I should show you one of my current obsessions:  GEO!
As I mentioned, I’m slightly over chevron so triangles and geometric shapes are a great alternative.

Trendspotting: Polka Dots

Are you seeing spots?  You aren’t alone!  2012 saw chevron everywhere (yes, I’m slightly over it) so what do you think will be the chevron of 2013?  In my opinion, you are going to be seeing polka dots and geometric prints everywhere.  I’m sure you have started to notice the trend!

Polka dots in the nursery

I love spots.  They can be gender neutral for those of you that are planning a nursery or they can be used when transitioning your little one to their first big boy/girl room as they aren’t too babyish and not to grown up.

Dots aren’t a trend to use on every surface, but check out my finds to see some items I think would really set off a room design.

1. Paint palette linen 2.  Neon spot cushions  3.  Dotty blanket 4.  Mini pom pom garland
5.  Multi spots removable wallpaper  6.  Mini Dot Rug  7.  Neon mobile 8.  Smartie pillow slip

Design Advice for Decorating a Shared Kids Rooms

One of the toughest rooms to design is a shared room. You want it to be attractive, but it still needs to store all your little ones bits and pieces! The rooms end up being a bit of a mish-mash as each child brings in pieces from their existing room.

As I prepare to design a room for my boys to share (and I’ll share with you some of my thoughts on the design over the coming months), I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite shared kids’ spaces I’ve found.

Trend Spotting: Dark walls in the nursery

Lately, I’ve noticed nurseries with chic dark walls popping up in my Pinterest feed. While some moms and dads are using dark color to add warmth and drama to the entire room, others are using it to create a focal point with an accent wall.
