Nursery Musings.....

"This Fox is a tricky fox. He'll try to get your tongue in trouble"......excerpt from Dr. Seuss' tongue twister of a book Fox in Socks.

So I have been browsing different blogs, websites, magazines, etc looking at nursery ideas. While I saw lots of rooms that were both cute and creative, I wasn't finding much that really stood out. Especially ones that were gender neutral (we are waiting to be surprised!) Really like a vintage, modern, eclectic look. I like color, but don't want to be overwhelmed with neon green or crossing-guard orange. Last week I came across this "design trend" on I especially love the little fox pillow.... the colors are perfect! I thought the red fox fabric would be really cute as an accent. Check out the article and sources here.

Oh, and I found this on etsy:

Wouldn't this be adorable with other handmade woodland animals thrown in the mix? I have seen some adorable owls, squirrels, and raccoons made in similar styles on etsy. And I have a pattern for a bird and branch mobile as shown below.

What do you think? Do you like it?


  1. You're the cutest!! That is one fortunate child...he or she will ALWAYS be fashionable!! Oh, how I love you!

    I love the woodland animals idea!

  2. I love it! I've been thinking of doing a similar style in Adelyn's room that is sort of Grimm's fairy tales inspired
