Trend Spotting: Dark walls in the nursery

Some think that dark walls in the nursery can be calming and stylish but others feel that it may be too dark and depressing for a baby’s room. What do you think of this trend? Here are 10 Nurseries with Dark Walls to help you decide!

Inspired Ideas for a Stylish Life with Baby {10/29/12}

An electrifying umbrella spruce-up idea, a DIY coffee table and a unique bulletin board project.

Turn a drab umbrella into a fab Fall accessory with this easy-peasy DIY from Design for Mankind. We love the geometric pattern created with handmade stencils.

This unique coffee table from DIY Vintage Chic costs only a few bucks to make and is filled with storage space. A wonderful DIY inspiration if you’re considering making your very own coffee table (click here for full tutorial).

This clever idea (via BHG.com) uses large tea towels to create a one-of-a-kind bulletin board for your home office, bedroom or kitchen. These would look equally adorable in a kids’ room or playroom. All you need is a large tea towel and a store-bought cork bulletin board to wrap.

Shoe Clues for Toddlers (favorite finds)

My daughter’s 4 years old and she thinks she can do EVERYTHING by herself. And most of the time she’s right, she can. But one thing she can’t seem to accomplish is putting her shoes on the correct foot.

Shoe Clues are only $3 — and will help your toddler distinguish left from right. When the stickers are facing each other, then your kiddo will know for sure that their shoes are on the correct foot.

And they’re mom-invented!

Inspired Ideas for a Stylish Life with Baby {10.08.12}

A fun gallery wall idea that disguises light switches, a bubble baby blanket diy and a helpful resource to keep your papers organized!

Light switches can present a challenge when it comes to decorating a wall — that’s why we love this gallery wall created by Jennifer of The Little Things. Using all white frames, she created a dynamic picture wall that practically makes the thermostat and light switch disappear!

We’ve seen lots of baby blanket diys over the years — but never one as unique as this one! New mom Skyler made this “bubble” blanket for her daughter Ada — and shared all the details on her blog Awaiting Ada.

Organizing papers is not something I’m got at. I have papers strewn about all over the house! Luckily, Steph of Modern Parents Messy Kids is sharing her top 15 resources for organizing your paper life. You’ve got to check it out! There are lots of useful links that you won’t want to miss!
