Unicorn Room Decor

We fell in love with this mythical unicorn bedding and coordinating unicorn ceiling tile the minute we saw it and had to share it with you. Our friends over at FauxTinTiles.com curated a collection of darling unicorn themed fashion bedding for the whimsical, modern girl.  Not too babyish, not too grown-up this bedding encourages fantasy in the color palette girls of all ages love – pinks, purples and blues.  We can definitely see pairing the bedding with a DIY headboard made from this Playful Unicorns Tin Ceiling Tile in a coordinating finish. Use it as inspiration for a baby shower theme or consider redecorating your young princess' or horse loving daughter's bedroom. Or for that matter this unicorn bedding and coordinating headboard idea would make for adorable dorm room, too. Just add small accents to give the room a bit more of an edge.

Where the Wild Things Are – A Tribute to Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild Things Are – A Tribute to Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild Things Are: A Tribute to Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild Things Are – A Tribute to Maurice Sendak

(1928-2012)

“The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws but Max stepped into his private boat and waved good-bye and sailed back over a year and in and out of weeks and through a day and into the night of his very own room where he found his supper waiting for him and it was still hot.”  Where the Wild Things Are

As many of you already know, we are huge fans of Maurice Sendak.  For more than forty years, the books Maurice Sendak has written and illustrated have nurtured children and adults alike and have challenged established ideas about what children's literature is and should be. The New York Times has recognized that Sendak's work “has brought a new dimension to the American children's book and has helped to change how people visualize childhood.” Parenting recently described Sendak as “indisputably, the most revolutionary force in children's books.”

To honor Mr. Sendak's memory we think the most appropriate tribute is making sure you have at least one Sendak book in your personal library.  Here are a few of our favorites!  Just scroll over the book cover for the title and click on the picture for a summary of each book.

African Inspired Safari Theme Nursery Ideas

Our obsession with the royal family continues! Prince William just announced that Prince George's bedroom will be decorated with jungle safari theme nursery decor, in deference to his family’s love of Africa. “I’ll have toy elephants and rhinos around the room … “We’ll cover it in, you know, lots of bushes and things like that. [We'll] make him grow up as if he’s in the bush,” the new dad said in CNN’s one-hour special, “Prince William’s Passion: New Father, New Hope.”

So knowing that so many mom's-to-be look to the young royals for style ideas, whether it be their choice of strollers or baby names,  we have put together an inspiration board with lots of adorable safari theme nursery decor ideas.  Any of these nursery essentials would all be much appreciated gifts at any African inspired safari theme baby shower or even an elephant or giraffe theme baby shower.

The anchor duvet cover would be absolutely perfect for a DG (Delta Gamma sorority sister) and how fabulous is this black & white cat duvet.  The wallpaper is removable and the hamper actually resembles a washing machine.  And check out this fabulous free verse duvet that comes with washable fabric pens with which to make notes and doodles.

Personalized Photo Pillows for Mom

Personalized Photo Pillows

I can just imagine my mom's adorable white maltese, Sugar's face on a pillow!  How perfect a Mother's Day present is a personalized photo pillow.  I hate to admit it but I do think she would prefer a single “Sugar” pillow to 9 individual pillows all with her grandchildren's smiling faces.  Although as I was perusing the newest Shutterfly product offerings, I did notice both a Gallery Monogram pillow and a Collage Squares pillow that could easily solve the “too many pillows” conundrum.

The Details

  • Stylish home decor with personalized designs that make a perfect complement to your bed or sofa.
Gallery & Collage Photo Pillows

Gallery and collage photo pillows are perfect gifts for grannies and grandpas with lots and lots of “grandbabies”

  • Finished with a black or ivory back
