Friday Favorites – kid & baby rooms

Posted by on September 2, 2011 in inspiration, my favs | 4 comments

So, living where we do – I’ve had to learn to live a little differently. In the States, I loved decorating Zander’s nursery and I didn’t even have to spend that much because of sales, inexpensive stores & so many do-it-yourself projects. Here in Mexico, childrens’ items are expensive. Decorating your nursery doesn’t mean hopping over to Hobby Lobby (because there isn’t one) or whipping something up (because supplies are hard to find). So, I’ve learned to be ok with simplicity.

Of course, that doesn’t mean I don’t love a really beautiful nursery or a great kids room. Here are some of the ones I’ve been pining over admiring.


Tripp’s Room from Hope, Longing and Life at Hyphen Interiors

I love the bright, fun red of this room. The alphabet wall is my favorite part.



Hannah’s Vintage Nursery from Lemon Tree Creations

Oh, if I ever have a girl. I love that this is not your typical pink girls’ room. The blue, yellow & grey is so cute.

the homemade sunshine artwork is adorable...and I love the doily mobile.


Book wall from Frugal with a Flourish

We love books, so I think this floating bookshelf wall is amazing. It’s almost like a huge, colorful wall hanging, but can be used and enjoyed for years to come.


For now, this is what my kiddo’s rooms look like:



Yes, they need help.


  1. look at that cute book wall! what an adorable (and functional) display. Love it!

    • It’s a great idea, right? I would have my husband build me one if we weren’t renting our current house…and if our walls weren’t made of pure concrete. :)

  2. Thanks for sharing these and I can’t wait to see what you do in your kids rooms! You certainly are off to a great start with the neames on the wall
    Thanks for following me – I’m following you back!

  3. I love the alphabet wall, and your kid’s room is coming along. I like their
    names with the scrap book paper and you are a great mom!
