Nursery Refresh: A Dose of Whimsy

Caitlin Wilson Design

I’ve been working on a nursery revamp for my most recent Homepolish client, and I have to tell you — it’s been fun! We’ve decided to go with a pretty in pink meets garden party theme, which means tons of blush, cream, and mint. For this project I took inspiration from Caitlin Wilson’s feminine fabrics — they were truly my jumping point — and wanted to keep things light and playful for this little three-year old. If you’re looking for cute little girl (meets big girl) bedroom ideas, you’ve come to the right place. Continue reading for three variations and let me know which is your favorite!

Simply Blushing

cute little girl bedroom ideas

If you can’t tell, I’m totally crushing on Caitlin Wilson Design (nearly all of the above pillows are from her collection). Her fabrics are the perfect combination of whimsy and sophistication and, lucky me, she’s opening up a studio in SF! The above look is perfectly girlie with the varying shades of pink and playful patterns. I know the Elodie Rug from Lulu & Georgia has been everywhere, but I can’t help but come back to it time and time again.

Daybed: Jenny Lind, Land of Nod // Rug: Elodie Rug, Lulu & Georgia // Dresser: Harmony Dresser, Land of Nod // Bedding: Scalloped Duvet, Serena & Lily // Pouf: Mint Pouf, Land of Nod // Bookcase: Cabot Bookshelf, Serena & Lily

Pillows (all Caitlin Wilson except the monogrammed option): Blush Buffalo Check Pillow // Pink Floral Pillow, Monogrammed Pillow

Bubblegums & Blues

Did you guys know that Minted now has home decor — everything from pillows, to curtains, to table linens, to lampshades — all created by their talented community of artists. It’s the perfect place to go for prints and pieces that are outside the standard. I took the bulk of my inspiration from their funky fabric and then anchored everything with simple (yet fun) bedding and neutral furniture.

Pillows: Heart Pillow, Minted // Hila Pillow, John Robshaw // Folding Fans Pillow, Anthropologie

Bold and Beautiful

This is by far the most playful design — the bold graffiti-like floral pillows paired with the simple blue stripes, and accented with the magenta zebras is just too cute. The client this was made for is particularly fond of animals and the zoo, so the zebras fit in perfectly.

Daybed: Jenny Lind, Land of Nod // Rug: Pink Mirabelle Rug, Lulu & Georgia // Dresser: Harmony Dresser, Land of Nod // Bedding:  Pink Pom Pom Duvet, Pottery Barn Kids // Pouf: Mint Pouf, Land of Nod // Bookcase: Cabot Bookshelf, Serena & Lily

Pillows: Graffiti Flora Pillow, Minted // French Stripe Pillow, Caitlin Wilson // Lil Zebras Pillow, Minted

Until next time.

Get the Look: The Cuyana Office

I recently attended an event at Cuyana in SF and while I love their products, I’m obsessed with their offices. Devotees know and love Cuyana for its simplicity, craftmanship, and style and their offices follow in that same vein. Conceptualized by SF interior designer, Lauren Nelson, their offices evoke a sense of minimalistic boldness that you can’t help but covet. Keep reading for tips on how to get the look at home on any budget.

The Lounge

Cuyana Office

The moment I walked into their lounge, I was hooked. It effortlessly mixes mid-century modern staples with more exotic, old-world pieces like the vintage maroon runner and neutral cowhide. The result is an eye-catching menagerie of old and old that somehow looks so current. Shop the full look below and see my picks for getting the look for less.

The Cozy Corner

Cuyana Office

Does this not make you want to curl up with a cappuccino and the latest issue of US Weekly? If it doesn’t, I don’t know what’s wrong with you. Right now, one of my favorite moves is draping a sheepskin over a chair — any chair — for a relaxed, but put together look. I love how this nook features a simple gallery wall — rule of three people — and a touch of green to keep everything lively. See below for tips on how to recreate the look at home, regardless of your budget!

The Look for Less:


#MakeItEssential

Cuyana’s mantra is “fewer better things” and while it certainly plays true to material possessions, I like to think it’s something you can implement into every aspect of your life. Remember, #MakeItEssential.

Fresh Decor for Spring

Spring has most definitely sprung and I’m dreaming about breathing a bit of life into my home. I’m thinking pops of color, refreshing my pillows, and updating my art game. Lucky for me, my favorite home decor site, Lulu & Georgia, is having a major — seriously major — pop-up shop sale now through April 22. I’m talking up to 80% off the prettiest pieces you ever did see. From pastel rugs that somehow don’t feel childish, to of-the-moment furniture, and timely decor, Lulu & Georgia pretty much has everything.

Get The Look: A Fling With Modern Design

Modern design and I are having a moment, a major moment.

I’m a self-proclaimed traditionalist — albeit with a penchant for twists on the classic — but I’ve been spending more and more time exploring new styles and interior designers, refining and defining my own personal style. While I don’t think I’ll ever fully move over to the modern-side, I do have a new-found respect for the un-complicated silhouettes. Keep reading to see the styles I’m currently obsessing over and how to get the look!
