Fun & Fresh Toddler Moodboard

Post by Kim Grosser of The Land of Nod’s Design Services Team.

Mandy wanted to update her daughter’s nursery to a fresh toddler’s room to match her two-year-old’s fun personality. She was hoping for a patterned focal wall and loves the Jenny Lind toddler bed.

Girls Shared Room

Amanda was looking for something fun for her girls. She wanted bedding that would coordinate together, but allow each of them to showcase their very different personalities. We were able to pull together a collection of bedding using two different color schemes, but using pattern and texture to tie them together.

Girls Shared Bedroom Design - 2

It’s no surprise to my readers that I LOVE The Land of Nod.  I’ve been posting on their Honest to Nod blog for a year and half now and have collaborated on lots of fun projects with them.  I’m not exaggerating or just being nice when I say that they are my favorite company, because they really are.  This company has the most creative folks working for them and gorgeous products that work well in any space (not just kid’s rooms).

We own a small 1920s California bungalow.  My girls share a bedroom, which lots of sisters do, but there is a 10 year age gap between my girls.  It’s a tricky thing to give both a toddler and a tween a space that they both love.  I didn’t want the space to be too grown up for Olivia, my two year old, or too babyish for my almost teenager, Denali.  I worked with Nod to bring their room together while Olivia was still in a crib (you can see the room here).  We loved the everything about the room, but when Olivia started crawling out of her crib this Winter, we knew it was time to move to a big girl bed.  So, earlier this year Nod approached me about helping with moving Olivia to a big girl bed and featuring their room in the Real Families.  I still can’t believe how lucky we are!!!  So we discussed whether we should change the crib out for a toddler bed and keep Denali’s vintage full sized bed or move to two twins and hopefully give the room a little more space.  And we decided that two twins would be the way to go.  We kept the wall color and basic color palette very much the same and added some key storage pieces and fun accessories to bring it all together.

This is my favorite room in our house.  I would happily move in their with the girls.  It’s a perfect mix of playful and pretty.  This is a room my girls can grow up in.  It’s layered with family heirlooms, thrifted finds, my simple DIYs, global treasures from out travels, and amazing Nod pieces.

Here’s the before:

I had so much fun picking out pieces for this space.  And then when the Nod team came to put the room together and photograph the space, I was in seventh heaven.  All that creativeness in my home was a dream come true.Girls Shared Bedroom Design - 8

Girls Shared Bedroom Design - 9By moving to two twins, we were able to fit two of these cute pink ombre book shelves into the room.  It gives us a ton of storage and great place to display all of the girls pretty things.  The Nod stylists worked their styling magic on the space.  They painted Denali’s desk a dark grey and centered it between the new bookshelves.  And then using the Gold Dot Decals, they created an amazing focal point over the desk.  They also created a huge triangle wall hanging to go over Denali’s bed.  It’s so fabulous and it’s made of just straws and sparkly yarn.  Dane thoughtfully used all our old treasured pieces and my DIYs to fill the space and keep it authentically ours.    Girls Shared Bedroom Design - 10

Girls Shared Bedroom Design - 13If I had to pick one thing in the space that was my favorite, it would be the Gold Bars Rug.  This rug is incredibly comfy and adds a graphic, modern feel to the space.  I love the touches of yellow and gold with the pale pink and grey.  Yellow brings so much energy and life to the room. Girls Shared Bedroom Design - 14

I’m so incredibly grateful to The Land of Nod for this gorgeous room and the wonderful experience of working with them.  We were lucky to get to have them here for 3 days.  And our whole family enjoyed this once in a life time opportunity. We also took them out to the desert with Riley, our vintage trailer, to shoot some other products.  You can see more of that here.

Bunk Beds!

Post by Jen of Jen Love Kev

Hi Everyone! I am super excited to share our girls shared room with you today.

Girls Shared Room Design - Bunk Beds

Gold Modern Clip Lamp / New School Dot Sheet Set / Noir Stripe Sheet Set

My oldest daughter, Rowan, has been asking us for bunk beds for about a year now. She couldn’t wait till her younger sister was old enough to share a room with her. With our family about to start fostering and we needed the extra bedroom, so we finally were able to tell her we were getting bunk beds! I wanted to keep the room pretty neutral and accent with pops of bright colors. Girls Shared Room Design - Bunk Beds 2 I love the combination of the black and white walls with the black and white bedding and furniture. Girls Shared Room Design - Bunk Beds 3 Land of Nod had all the right pieces to bring the room together and make it extra special.
