Our fave baby milestone posters, now in 5 great colors

I’m a big fan of everything from Strange Birdy Studios, so I was excited to hear that they’ve expanded their My First Year Poster range to include some gorgeous limited edition colors, as well as a customized version.   There are five new color combinations available, each one cooler than the next. And for a really special new baby gift, there is also a customizable version of the poster. Imagine how much a new mama would love a poster with her precious baby’s name and birthdate printed right on it. These posters are so great for busy parents (which...

Decorating a child’s room with totally free vintage posters

When I first decorated my baby girl’s room years ago, I designed it around a giant, kitschy vintage poster that I had owned for years. It was a surprising, fun focal point–and it sure made it easier to narrow down the six zillion options for crib sheets. So I nearly flipped when I found this site which features printable vintage posters–all free! Aptly named Free Vintage Posters, the selection is pretty amazing, to the tune of more than 500 free printables. I especially love the foreign language ones, but they’re all so wonderfully fun. How cool would a vintage...

The most gorgeous nursery artwork that looks nothing of the sort

There are so many options for decorating your new baby’s nursery walls with gorgeous artwork, from custom posters to colorful growth charts to giant wall decals. And now I’ve just found another amazingly creative option that you have to see to believe. Marcelle Crosby’s Folded Paper Dresses look like large-scale origami pieces made of folded maps and other cool-looking printed paper. Measuring about 17 inches in length, I would’ve loved to hang the Miss Paris Pink dress in my daughter’s nursery. It would have had me dreaming of crepes and the Louvre during those 3AM nursing sessions. If you’re...

Dino-mite dinosaur decals for your wall

Dinosaurs: they’re timeless, they’re great for both boys and girls, and now they can liven up a child’s room without ruining the walls. We’re digging these three new sets of decals that can turn any kid’s cave into a strange new world. Oh, and one includes Godzilla. We’re big fans of the mod, hip collaboration between Blik wall decals and Babybot design, which is why we just had to show you their three newest dinosaur creations. There’s the straight-up dino collection of Strange New World. And then you can add the slightlier wackier (and more purple!) creatures of Crash...

Home is where you hang your hat on a bunny

Need to get those coats off the floor? The bunny can help! In fact, there’s an entire menagerie ready to help keep things tidy. The source for these adorable coat hooks is Pomme, the superhip kids’ outpost in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Whether you go with the rabbit, cat, frog, or cow, each coathanger is about eight inches tall and four inches wide and made of enamel-coated metal with four round hooks. And each one looks just as trustworthy and earnest as the last. We adore these fine fellows, but keep in mind that while each coat hook is only $12,...

Just try to resist this super cool Star Wars print. Or as Yoda would say, Do or do not; there is no try.

Sometimes the princess saves the prince quite prettily

We love it when princesses don’t need saving. But we’re also big on seeing what happens when the genders are reversed in classic fairy tales, turning princesses into dames in shining armor. So if you love empowered women, we think you’ll fall for these gorgeous illustrations, too. I discovered the work of Yudi Chen on tumblr and had to find out more. As it turns out, she’s an illustration student at the Rhode Island School of Design, and her Gender-Reversed Fairy Tales series is available on Society 6 in the form of prints, framed prints, or stretched canvas. I...
