Sep03 Travel Nursery 2013
First off…I must announce the winner of our Ivie baby shop credit goes to the lovely Becky Lee. Email me and I’ll give you details.
Now…On to today’s lovely nursery here’s a little from the mother, photographer and nursery decorator Crystal Lindsey.
“Our family loves to travel and my husband and I love collecting vintage items, so this nursery is full of handmade & vintage items! I handmade the crib skirt and the beige cloud pillows from a canvas drop cloth that I picked up at a local hardware store, I added some pom-pom trim to the crib skirt and threading details to the pillows. The yellow chevron cloud pillow & the cloud garland above the changing table came from Revamped Art’s. The Jenny Lind crib & Hot Air Balloon mobile are both from Amazon. I made the “Explore” string art above the crib using a hand drawn design and baker’s twine. The green baskets above the changing table and the herringbone rug are from Urban Outfitters. The gold dot bed sheet & changing pad cover are from Land of Nod, and the black & white strip curtains are from Overstock.com.
A collection of vintage globes & a vintage suitcase that I found at a local flea market adorn the top of the book case. The vintage suitcase even has a STL airport tag dating back to the 1960′s!
The “Live with Passion” screen print embroidery hoop art is from Sweet Harvey’s. The four prints on the gallery wall are from MKKM Design’s. I hand painted the ornate frame at the top and I made the gold embroidery hoop silhouette with some vintage green fabric & gold duct tape. The barn wood hook rail is made from salvaged wood found on our family’s farm & I added 3 drawer knobs from Hobby Lobby.
Last, but not least the mint green chair & round leather ottoman were thrifted.”

Jul23 Sophie 2013
I know I say this all the time, but this really is one of my favorite nurseries. The lighting and the fun geometric shapes with the quirky wall art, all in the most precious color palette, it just makes me smile.
Here’s the beautiful mother and decorator extraordinaire Alexis to tell you more about it:
“I was so excited to gather fun finds for my Sophie’s room. I wanted to stick to a palette of grey, mint, peach, and white for a fresh clean feel. I mixed vintage, and flea market finds with geometric shapes for a subtle, quirky vibe. I adore the Restoration Hardware conversion crib, and the zig zag rug from Rugs USA. Although the leather geo mobile is more for decor than to soothe my baby to sleep, it was won by my sister -in-law through Instagram, and still remains one of my favorite oddities of her room.The hand painted Sophia sign was made custom from a dear friend of mine, and will always be a cherished memento of my pregnancy, and journey into parenthood. Now that our little human is born it is so much fun to see her in the room that I made for her- and I cannot wait for her to grow up and make memories in it.”

Jun21 Bright Star Kids 2013
Oh heavens do I love this wall art! Our sponsors over at Bright Star Kids have come up with the easiest and most adorable way to easily decorate your child or baby’s room with art that can be easily personalized and great for all ages. It’s perfect for a new nursery as gorgeous art behind a crib or changing table (especially when your looking for an easy and cute way to fill up that massive wall). They also have canvas art that you could add to a frame wall or use to add some color to a room, or they also sell wall stickers which can be really fun for a big design (the stickers and decals can be used on all kinds of household walls from painted plasterboard to brick). The stickers are also great because when you’re ready to move, you can easily peel off these stickers and reuse them; great for renters (or really just for people that move around). One of my favorites is the growth chart, such a fun way to track the growth of kids, used as decoration straight on the wall. Some of my other favorites are the small clothing name tags so you get those 0-3 month boys clothes back once they’ve been passed around 30 times, and name tags for toys so those toys come out alive from preschool.
They offer free shipping for orders over $50 and the product will dispatch within two working days.
They’re giving away FIVE $50 gift vouchers to Grey Likes Baby readers. WOOHOOO. All you have to do is leave a comment to enter.
