Pop of Color Details for a Desert Modern Nursery Toddler Room

This month we were challenged by Wayfair to add a pop of color to our homes, and I am just beginning to gather some of the pieces that will ultimately go into the Bird's new space. What you see here is very rough, and very much the early stages and that is precisely what I am wanting to show you. I love a good reveal, but I think it's important to step back and show you the process along the way occasionally as well.

Pop of Color Accessories from Wayfair

Precipice Lake Framed Print // Gideon Lamp by Arteriors Home // Birch Vases // Herringbone Throw // Kilim Pillow // Tie Dye Pillow

These are some of the other items I really (really) wanted to snatch up, and I still just might, but I have set some new rules for myself, one of which involves staying focused on whatever I'm working on until it's completed, before moving on to the next thing... at least as much as possible in this line of biz (totally not possible at all). Since these gorgeous things wouldn't be for Penn's Nursery space, they didn't quite make the cut this time around, and yes mama is still wishing they had, so I just might be doing a little consolation shopping as we speak? Maybe... Eek. I'm obviously terrible at following my own rules. Gah

So, if you are inspired to add a pop of color to your space right now, or care to do a bit of consolation shopping, hop right on down to the rafflecopter entry form and give it a click as soon as you leave a quick comment on this here blog post. All you need to do to enter is post a link to an item on wayfair.com and show me something fabulous you would love to get that would add a pop of color to your space (or a shot of neutral, ha)... 

And, just in case you were really wanting to see another cute slash funny pic of the Bird in his 'sit', which I will spill all about shortly, here you go... you are welcome. He is a funny little duck. Technically he hasn't quite figured out how to avoid falling through this chair, but he is sure willing to give it a go anyhow. Good thing it's a mere inches from the ground. 

If the rafflecopter box doesn't appear right away, refresh your page or give it a second to load. Good luck!

(Comments with links require moderator approval and may take a bit to appear, especially if I'm sleeping or doing some other crazy thing, but not to worry, I will get them all approved without doubt!)

Some of you probably remember my plan of attack for the bird's nursery.. you can read more about that here. I thought I would update you on what's been done so far, yahoo!

Luckily customer service was wonderful and they sent a replacement right out and this one was intact. BUT... in true pregnant mama fashion I decided I hated the colors. They weren't quite like they are shown on the package or on the site. They were decidedly more muted and a bit blah to be quite honest.

Since this bad boy was paper... you know I couldn't let it rest as is and I took to it with some craft paint and crayon. I added a turquoise blue, sea green, and pink in paint and went over the browns and beiges. Then I used a white colored pencil and lightly went over the orange color which made it decidedly more neon orange in person, which is awesome!

You can see how this little corner of the room is shaping up. I still have a ton to do and of course as soon as I finish I will very likely change everything up and begin again since I have the worst case of Design ADD known to man... In the meantime it will be fun to share some of the easy peasy projects with you guys and see how baby bird likes his new digs. He will be ready to move in within the month I think, and it will likely take me till next year to get around to sharing the deets, ha... exciting times my lovelies!
