Such a great vibe in this modern nursery, don't you think? With the honeycomb party balls on the ceiling, it feels very fun, very party-ish without being theme-y.

This is a fun idea. Create an intriguing dramatic scene with the kids using paper glued onto balsa wood found at the craft store. Balsa wood is easily cut with an exacto knife (your job) and paper can be cut out & glued on with a glue stick.
Simple, simple and would equal hours of imagination! For mor info go to the blog Estefi Machado.

Are you brave enough to make a DIY baby swing? After reading Pinja Colada's excellent tutorial, I think I am! And her pattern for a simple, hang in the doorway baby swing is easy to do once supplies are gathered.
Given the right elements (a nice sunny day in the shade!) this fabric baby swing would be lovely outside and once no longer in use, would be the easiest baby swing to store, ever.

I'm excited to share Pregnancy & Newborn's Fall 2012 Buyer's Guide. Not only is it a great guide (out now!) but includes several products from fawn&forest, including the KLT Works Flight of the Fancy Mobile! Doesn't it totally make this vignette look fantastic?
Also included in the vignette: White Modernica Armshell Rocker, Olli & Lime Billie Crib Quilt and the Petit Collage Animal ABC in brown. On the cover behind the mom is Petit Collage's Wood City Prints.
I love when a nursery space is just so... effortless.. designed with ease. Playful, yet simple. And of course, not too matchy matchy .. you know?
This twin nursery is just that. But more. Because it's for both a boy and a girl, the color palette is variegated. It's comfortable, personal yet pulled together.
...and quite clever to use the Sleepi Canopy Rod to hang the mobiles (traditionally used to suspend a canopy or veil)

By now most kids are back to school. We are too ... the school of fun at fawn&forest - ha!
Now that new pencils, glue and markers are crossed off the list I've gathered a fun bunch of goodies that'll make "back to school" a bit more of a treat for the kids.
Fun is good, take a look!
This is seriously one of the coolest kids parties ever -- a Magritte party by Erika of Mikodesign. An incredibly inspiring concept (1 part Magritte, 1 part detective mystery), color palette and use of imagery. Mustaches & clouds!
I love how this birthday party was a working, collaborative effort between mom and the 9 year old birthday girl, spending hours and thoughtful attention in all the details. I am sure this party was a blast!
Sometime inspiration comes not from actual interiors but a grouping of colors, products & shapes. Something well styled. I recently found these well styled spaces by Sofia of the blog Mokkasin.
This was a project styled for the Swedish magazine Family Living - ideas for bringing the summertime & outdoors in ... to live the summer life year around. Fun concept, especially for Sweden! Anyway, I found it really inspiring and love the ease and sensibility of the 1st grouping.
