Go Tribal










































Your little one’s nursery is his / her first room in their brand new world!  Why not 
forgo the classic pink for girls and blue for boys and instead of just cute, think design and inspirational…enter the tribal nursery.

With soft and earthy colors the tribal nursery provides a gender neutral palette pleasing to all.

Our charming cuddly Teepee pillow is the perfect accent piece.  You will adore the soft hand drawn illustrations and beautiful pops of color.

The front side features a tribal design in soothing minky fabric your newborn will love to snuggle with!  The reverse side is solid white minky and has the smart feature of a large pocket for PJ’s, small toys or whatever else you might fancy tucking away.

Sized at 18x20 these pillows won't get lost on a large bed either! Tip: stack the Teepees all side by side or mix with other softies for a better effect.

Hidden zipper on the bottom allows for an easy removal for wash.

Be intentional with your tribal nursery design and let your imagination run free!

How to use navy blue for girls rooms and nurseries



When it comes to decorating a nursery for a girl, you have millions of options: peach, pinks, golds and yellows and teals. Not many moms choose navy blue for baby girls. Yes, it is an intense color ,traditionally associated with boys, and it's tricky to work with. But when done right , the results can be very rewarding. If you are up for a challenge to make your girl's nursery unique, bold and pinterest-worthy, here are some tips on how to make deep navy blue work for you. 
  • PAIR NAVY BLUE WITH YELLOW/ MUSTARD

Brighten the navy area with fun contasting color, like yellow or golden mustard. Pay attention to the type of pattern too. Better to choose playful and whimsical to dillute all the seriousness of a navy blue.




























  • PAIR WITH WHITES
Another great color to combine navy blue with is white. Simple and dreamy navy/white combo will help you create a gender neutral nursery that can also be used as a guest room. Add variety of textures and patterns with different scales for a good balance.































  • PAIR IT WITH CORAL / PEACH and GOLDS
Probably the most popular way to use navy for girls is to add a good amount of coral or peach to it.
Yes, this combo is lovely and it is also very useful when trying to transform a boy's nursery into a little girl's. No re-painting of the walls needed! Make sure to use some metallic gold accents for a bit of bling and reflection,  plus navy and gold is so classic.





















































  • USE NAVY SPARINGLY
You don't need to paint a whole wall in navy or have a wall-to-wall navy blue carpeting.. Sometimes less is more! Pepper the navy color throughout the room in small accents. A lamp, artwork, pillow or delicate navy pattern in bedding. Load with white, greys and beige to offset the dark accents.

Modern Safari-theme nursery


Modern Safari -theme nursery does not have to be kitchy. Large hand-painted wall murals of jungles and monkeys hanging from trees are a bit outdated. If you like the idea of Jungle-theme, or African animals-theme nursery, but want to keep it stylish and tasteful, you can rock it with a few simple rules.


  • Keep the color palette simple, up to 2 main colors + 2 accents sprinkles throughout.
  • Add textures to keep it interesting and within the theme. Go with textured sisal-type, or soft faux-animal skin rug would work quite well. Add woven storage baskets or a cool lamp.
  • Stay with modern interpretation in fabric and artwork
  • Keep wood in lighter tones to resemble warm African palette.
Here is the mock-up for a Safari-theme nursery I came up, share yours!

Custom Baby blanket - Crabs

I love custom designs. Here is a little visual about my design process. My favorite part is when I see a complete product! 
This particular design was based on my client's love for crabs! As we kept exchanging visuals and ideas, she told me she likes a more flowy design. 
That was it!

Roundup: Woman's Sleepwear

I recently found myself without a decent looking sleepwear for summer. Sure, I got tons of wife-beaters and old t-shirts, but let's admit - once you pass the breastfeeding period and your children sleep all though the night, there is really no excuse for looking drap and un-sexy in your sleepwear. So I set out to find myself a comfortable (!) and good-looking, feminine summer sleeping outfit.

 I toss during the night, and I really hate to get all tangled up and twisted in loose pajama pants or a nightgown. I quickly learned that during summer my best oprion is a fitted long tank top and shorts.

I am sharing my findings here in case you need to update your sleepwear too.

What do you wear to bed? And what qualities are you looking for when selecting sleepwear:
fiber, price,cuteness, sex appeal, comfort, classic feel, luxurious feel, elegance? Tell me in comments below!
