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!

A Vintage Poster: Unique Modern Art for Little Ones

Framed art and quotes in the nursery are extremely popular—allowing mama-to-be to easily fill up wall space and add some color to the room. And best of all, you don’t have to spend a fortune to create a lovely art gallery in baby’s room.

We first fell in love with the prints from A Vintage Poster when we featured this modern boy nursery (above) last year. A Vintage Poster creates simple, fresh designs featuring quotes, illustrations and animals. You can also request custom prints featuring a quote that’s particularly close to your heart—visit their blog for a look at some of their custom work.

Each print features a unique design—and they’re affordable too! Prices start at $14 for an 11×14 print. And the more you buy, the more you save! Enjoy 25% off when you buy 3 or more vintage posters with code MORE4ME at checkout.

These vintage posters look great in any room—just take a look at these beautiful customer photos and I think you’ll agree.
