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.

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

The Look for Less: A Playful and Neutral Nursery

Earlier today we showcased a twin boy nursery, with a bit of a safari theme, featuring a few splurge items. And because I just can’t help myself — and I know how much you all love a bargain! — I put together a nursery design board to give you some ideas on how to get the look for less.

I included some items from the original room design, like the pouf and bookcase, because I felt that they really were quality finds. I opted for an espresso crib vs the two-tone crib to save $100 — and saved big, while still adding custom art into the design, with some personalized prints from Etsy. Read More...

Playful Safari Twin Nursery (Featured Baby Room)

This week’s featured baby room is a bright twin boys’ nursery. It’s playful yet sophisticated — and it’s got a bit of a safari theme going on.

This jaw-dropping nursery is uncluttered and playful. It looks like it was designed by a pro! And you could say that it was because new mom of twins Ali, of Charles and Ali, isn’t exactly a “new” mom. These twin boys are baby #4 and #5 for Ali so she knows a thing or two about putting a nursery together. More nursery details and images after the jump!


A Sweet and Neutral Baby Room {Featured Real Nursery}

This week’s featured nursery is sweet and neutral — and designed by CCN contributor/new mom Amelia!

Our newest contributor Amelia just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, a little earlier than expected, but she was ready because she had already completed the nursery. I think that’s some sort of record! The room is serene, filled with colorful accessories and great design choices.

Take a tour of Amelia’s completed nursery after the jump! Read More...

Up, Up & Away Twin Nursery

This week’s featured real nursery has an Up, Up and Away theme, featuring whimsical hot air balloons, personalized airplane decals and lots of special touches.

Mama-of-twins Lisa of Lisa Fero Interiors says, “I have boy/girl twins and have created a gender neutral nursery for them to share. Sticking to our budget was important, so the room consisted of great inexpensive finds and diy projects.”
