I am mildly obsessed with wallpaper. My favorite room in my house is my grasscloth-covered powder room that is the size of a closet. In my opinion, nothing makes a bolder statement in a room than creating a look on the walls via paint or paper. It encompasses the room and is the backbone to the overall look and feel. Here are some ways to use nursery wallpaper to get the look you want.
There are so many gorgeous feminine toile-like prints that girls can really grow with. To me, this wallpaper gives the room an elegant and luxurious Old English feel.
Bold patterns can be scary to commit to, but if you find one you adore, like this LULU DK jungle print, I say go bold!
You can achieve a clean sophisticated look that still works perfectly in a nursery by using grasscloth wallpaper. There are so many gorgeous colors that would work as a terrific backdrop to make your furniture pop.
We are happy to share the news that we’re packing our bags and heading to the Windy City. You’ll find Melisa and Pam at THE hottest event in town, Best of Bump Club and Beyond, on May 19th, from 10 am – 2 pm, at the Marriott Michigan Avenue. And that’s not at all, folks. To add to the fun, we will be partnering with The Land of Nod, one of our all-time favorite nursery and and kids’ furniture companies.

Hip, hip hooray for stripes! We love the way the soft pink stripes were incorporated onto the ceiling of this sweet blue and pink girl’s nursery, along with the beautiful stencil work above the crib. It’s elegant beyond words, and our readers loved it. Oh wait, we have to mention how those fabulous turquoise, red and green paper flowers give the room a perfect pop of color. Beautiful job!
Want to be one of our Nurseries and Parties We Love? Upload your project to our gallery, and on Friday, the Project Nursery team will select the top projects. Then it’s up to you all to let us know which room or party you “like” best.
We’re shameless nerds. We love to read—to ourselves and to our families. In an age of iPads and Kindles, we’re two old-fashioned girls who love the feel of the pages and the bright colors of illustrations for kids.
With the love for books comes the need for shelving—lots and lots of shelving—and lately, we love adding a special shelf for the current book, the favorite read and the trusty one that always puts weary heads to sleep. Here are some unique bookshelves for our favorite reads.
Stories help little ones wander up into the proverbial clouds, so we can’t help but love this cloud shelf for holding these wonderful tales and adding another visual element to the room.
When Big City Moms decides they’re going to do something, they always do it right. So last week, when hundreds of new and expecting moms poured into the San Francisco edition of The Biggest Baby Shower Ever, it was no surprise that it was a smashing success.
Project Nursery created a nursery that was bold, bright and blue. Thanks to the help of some wonderful partners, we loved the overall look and hope you do, too!
A big thank you goes to Newport Cottages for their gorgeous Devon Collection crib and changer in that spectacular Bahama Blue color. This collection can be found exclusively at Sprout San Francisco. Sprout specializes in organic, natural products, like the elegant, white glider on display, which is made with 100% certified organic materials.
The gorgeous mod-patterned crib sheet provided by Oliver B was on display and was a big hit. Oliver B generously sent one lucky shower attendee home with a bedding set! We also had Natalie Gordon, the founder of the universal registry site Babylist, on hand to help expecting parents with all of their registry needs.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a baby shower without some sweets! We adore the talented work of Sweet Lauren Cakes who created our lovely cake pops. We also need to thank Edible Details for the beautiful, perfectly colored pink and blue fondants.
All the fun of the night was photographed by Melissa Sanchez of SavvyInSanFrancisco. Thank you for capturing the details and all of the smiles throughout the event. In fact, it was such a great night, we are sure everyone left their hearts in San Francisco!
