What Does The Fox Say?

We’ve all been hit hard by the YouTube sensation “What Does The Fox Say?” But kids in particular seem to be huge fans of the catchy tune. So when when I stumbled across a children’s book based on the viral video during a recent trip to Toys R Us, I knew I was way overdue for a fox-inspired finds post.

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
