Modern nursery rugs

In my long search for the perfect nursery rug, I found so many cute ones that I loved!

Thought I’d share some with you, in case you are having as much trouble as I did finding that perf rug for your nursery.

I was basically obsessed with the Madeline Weinrib Brooke Rug in hot pink, but then found out it was $1100 for 5×8, so that was definitely out of the question. So sad! If it’s in your budget though, go for it. It’s stunning, and if you hire the carpet cleaning las vegas company you will never have problems with odors or anything!! They have a lot of different colors too.

This gold zebra rug from Overstock is gorg!! I know it’s not the typical nursery looking rug, but that’s what I like about it. It’s so different & glamorous. At $486 it’s not bad, but still more than I really wanted to spend.

The West Elm Souk rug was also one of my favorites

The Surya Archive Rug in coral is gorgeous too

I thought it would compete too much with the black & white striped wall though

This hand tufted wool black & white chevron is gorgeous too

Another chevron from Land of Nod

I also found that Urban Outfitters has a ton of cute rugs that would be perfect for boys too. They are really affordable.

Also loved this black & white geometric rug I found on Ebay

We ultimately decided on the Pottery Barn Kids chevron rug in pink, which I am really happy with. I like the fact that it’s cotton & at $250, pretty inexpensive. So if it gets ruined by baby girl, it won’t be too much of a disappointment!

Originally I thought I would have to return it thinking there would so too much going on in with the black & white striped wall and everything, but it looks amazing! Very girly, yet sophisticated & modern just how mommy wanted it šŸ™‚ Which is your favorite?

We hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Washi Tape Corkboard DIY

I found this awesome idea for a corkboard on Pinterest. This was so easy, I literally made this in 20 mins!

{Supplies used}

* 4 pack of 12″ corkboard tiles – found at Michaels

* Japanese Washi tape in your fav color.Ā 15mm size – found on Etsy or here

* 1.5 inch Masking tape (I used frog tape since that’s all we had)

* Scissors

I taped the first pieceĀ diagonal across the corkboardĀ  leaving about 1/2 inch on either side to tape to the back

Then I took the frog tape and used it to spacer for the rest of the pink washi tape

Repeat on the other 3 corkboards..

You can do this design or.. switch the tiles around and make this design

and you’re done! Now just stick the tiles to the wall with the adhesive squares provided.

Pretty cute huh?

Pinterest Favorites {Wall colors + design}

I’m going to warn you, I have been really into hot pink lately. Like REALLY into it. I am now counting the days until we can buy our own house (which should be happening in about a year). The main thing that blows about renting = you have to run everything by your landlord. Our landlord is amazing, but I really doubt he would let me paint his hardwood floors white or paint/wallpaper every room in this house! Anyway bottom line, I can’t wait to own again! Until then, I will just dream.

{Here are some of my all time favorite paint colors/wall coverings/ideas}

Ok although this space is overall very industrial, I love the fact that they brought their own style to it! Perfect mix of rustic, glam, urban, industrial. One of my favorite things in decorating is to mix styles. It brings something unexpected & unique to the table.

Imperial Trellis stenciled ceiling – One word. GORG. Quite possibly the cutest ceiling in the world.

I would love to do something like this in the nursery or bathroom.

Next up is this vintage glamorous bathroom – Loving the pink walls with white accents. Don’t be afraid to go bold with your paint. With the right accessorizing, it could look amazing beyond words.

Bold pink walls & neutrals. The mirrored bed – to die for.

Wallpapered pink kitchen & ghost chairs. Again super unexpected, yet amazing if done right.

Gorgeous chic trellis stencil.. I have been dying to try this on something. I have been thinking about buying a second hand bookcase for my storage challenged home office. As soon as that happens, I’ll be all over this.

Gross cloth walls, stunning chandelier + white deer head hmmm.. you can’t really go wrong with these items!

Color coordinated bookshelf = A-mazzzz. It’s like where do you get all those pink books though??!

Love this funky geometric wallpaper + the hot pink tissue box doesn’t hurt either. A bright pop of color, is sometimes all you need to give a room that wow factor.

What do you think? Do you have any fun & unique plans for your walls?? Feel free to follow me on Pinterest for more ideas.

Happy Friday!! Xo, Melissa
