Lay Baby Lay

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

I've recently become smitten with the nursery design blog called Lay Baby Lay. Have you seen the gorgeous photos of her daughter, Vivi's, nursery flying around the blogosphere? The room is insanely stylish and I want my office to have that exact same chevron rug!

Aside from her gorgeous nursery, Joni designs some of the most stylish nursery inspiration boards and shares all of her links and sources. It's practically having a designer create a gorgeous nursery for you for free.

Here are some of my favorite inspiration boards of hers lately:

There are a couple of things that I want to point out about why I love these inspiration boards so much. First, the pieces that Joni selects are not crazy expensive or at least there are always some key pieces that are reasonably priced. I really don't think you have to have tons of money to have a great looking home. Always remember that money doesn't buy good taste so I think the opposite hold true as well. Secondly, none of these rooms feel "babyish." I tend to design nurseries that will grow with the child. For most of us, redesigning a room when we have two year olds won't be an option, so why not just start a little more grown up? And third, if you go and check out the sources, you'll see that most of the dressers she selects are from etsy. I guess I need to spend some more time looking for furniture there, not that I need one more thing to drool over on etsy!

Last but certainly not least, Joni is offering a free download of the darling poster below. So, she's saying it's okay to have a messy house, right?

Thank you Joni for sharing your great taste with us! XO
