oh what fun, baby shower decor

My brother & sister-in-law are having a baby girl so time to throw a little shower for the both of them! The baby room has a modern woodland theme using neutral gray, a bold dark raspberry & pops of yellow artwork. So the theme for the shower was yellow using mostly the gifted artwork as decor.

In the past I have never been a huge fan of Mums but this year they have caught my attention. You've got to love something colorful & hearty when everything around slowly turning brown. Today on Poppytalk they showcased this lovely Mum garland. I love the colorful ombre of mums!

intellectual jewelry

On Project Runway this season, one of the designers used 3D printing to create accessories to compliment his line. I thought it was a pretty ingenious way to pair Science with fashion plus it looked so unique.  I was fascinated by the whole process. Honestly, it must be so fun to see a paper 2D piece come to life in 3D form. I was so excited to stumble onto this jewelry line by way of and I had to see more!

This line is not only organic, modern & just cool; every piece is based on nature. Nervous System "write computer programs based on processes and patterns found in nature and use those programs to create unique and affordable art, jewelry, and housewares".

I am helping to decorate my niece-to-be's nursery. We are going with a woodland theme and I have found so much lovely art along the way.

I have found myself admiring all the hoop embroidered wall art out there. It has such a great shape, texture & pop of color on your wall. I thought this would be cute in a baby or kids room. Colorful hand embroidered fireworks from On The Wall by Yoko.
