These rooms and their shelves,

would welcome some wooden animals like our buddy the rhino,
or the hippo crafted from ironwood,
On first blush, you might say the shield mirror in the TEOT Etsy shop leans traditional. But because of its clean lines and classic shape its actually pretty versatile.
Here it is in a more traditional installation, Eddie Ross’ dining room
It would be a welcome addition to this gallery wall,
How does it translate in a modern bath, pretty well I’d say,
But I think my favorite placement for it might be a boy’s room like this maybe,
or this one,

My favorite color is turquoise and I’m always drawn to blue glass in shelter mags, around town and at the flea market. I love the utilitarian and coastal look of vintage blue glass water bottles like the one in our Etsy shop, the Estate Sale.
You can spot antique demijohns and blue and green glass fairly easily in a variety of interiors. I love them in bathrooms and kitchens paired with wicker or driftwood or catching plenty of sunlight near a window.
In the Emerson Made household they fill their blue glass bottle up with corks.
I’ve been working on piecingÂ a nursery together and because I’m still convinced that its a boy (two more weeks until we know!)Â I’ve been focusing on creating aÂ space meant for a boy. Not to worry–I’m not totally putting my eggs in one basket, I do have a starting element for a girl’s nursery that I could build on.
One element I was thinking of including is a quilt or blanket folded and placed over the side of the crib. Let me stop here and say thatÂ I did this in DC’s room and I placed it at the foot of the crib so there was no risk of it falling off in to the crib and on to herÂ face.Â
While we’reÂ on the topic of baby quilts, during some of my daily reading I discovered designer Amy Meier (thanks to Amber Interiors) whoÂ is letting a quilt drive the concept in her daughter’s nursery. Check out Amy’s portfolio here.
