Another fun side project in the works!
It started with a simple question posed in an email to me: Where does one find cute, stylish crib bedding that’s not gonna break the bank? Despite being somewhat bitter that DwellStudio launched their line for Target right after I had purchased the pricey real deal, they were definitely my first stop. I was thrilled to find they’ve launched a new collection since then, including the adorable “Menagerie” pattern below — giraffes, elephants, camels and hippos in subtle shades of warm gray, terra cotta, pea green and light gray-blue. Instantly inspired, I offered to mock up a board for the mommy-to-be (as long as she let me used it as a blog post, of course!). You wouldn’t believe the selection of vintage-y items from major retailers like Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie! I had so much fun the other night putting this “first draft” together for her, and luckily, she loves it!

With this, I had sent her a few options for each piece, and I’m thinking we definitely need to do a gallery wall too…so stay tuned for the next round!
