The New Yorker | Nursery

LOVING this board today!!  So much to talk about here.  I got a request for a Custom Style Board from a reader, and I was just tickled!!  She wanted a design for a little girl, but didn't want things overly girly, with more neutral colors.  She has this awesome contemporary bear fine art original (not pictured) - I wanted to tie in the bear so I threw in a few different bears and other animals {5}, {9}, {11}, {15} and {23}.  I also pulled out a few things from her favorite boards, the pendant {1} from {this board}, the wood accents inspired from {this board}, and bright color pops and animals gleaned {here} & {here}.

Have a crush on {this} cloud mobile.  I want one for our son's room to hang above the changing table since he LOVES the mobile over his crib.  Isn't it darling??  

I am such a big fan of illustration, especially vintage illustration - and let's get real, this is a CITY people, so featuring the vintage "The New Yorker" cover BIG and LOUD as the center of attention over the crib was appropriate.  I was inspired by {this image} which has the same poster!  Just adore {these textiles}, any of them would go so well here, and they are all wonderfully neutral!  How about this brass A {8}, Art Deco anyone?  Great Pinterest board on Art Deco I follow {here}.  This one is an ornament - why not re-purpose as wall art?  Other great A's: Typography A {10} and Marquee Sign {12} are featured as well.  I find I can never get enough of sharing of baby's name and precious initials!

 For the aqua wall color I was envisioning it only being painted on 1/3 of either one or three of the walls.   See {this style board} for the same idea and  read the post for links to images examples of a partially painted wall.

How great is the giant Wall Mural of the Manhattan Skyline {18}?  If you've got a blank wall and don't know what to do, maybe a large photographic wall mural would be just the right touch!  I was inspired by the image below, from this blogger {here}.

Love the rustic brass tones captured in the industrial pendant, bed frame, and throw, as well as subtle teal undertones in the pillow and lamp.  The grey pillows really bring out the mural here!  Lots of texture going on too.

The Grey Star Pillow {22} on my board does the same thing, and had to throw in those neon colors against that gorgeous black and white!

This wall hanging is gorgeous and would also be a nice addition to the room {NYC 1958 Subway Tapestry} - it is on sale now for a great price and going fast.

One last touch that would be great for this space: why not try this easy DIY magazine rolling storage solution pictured {here}, & how about upgrading to {pink casters}!

Just way to excited, collaborating is so much fun -- always love to hear from my readers!  

Thanks again for reaching out, you know who you are!  ;)
