Nursery decor

Wicked cute

Quite possibly the cutest hamper ever, this wicker elephant laundry basket would also be a great place to stash the mountain of stuffed animals toddlers hoard.

This grayscale image is simply stunning and the growth chart doubles as functional wall art. It's a piece your kid can display in his room from tot to teen.

Elephant area

Area rugs in a nursery with hard wood floors are a must, and this one would make tummy time more fun.

Personalized puzzle

My trick for keeping kid clutter in check? Toys that look great when your kid inevitably leaves them out in the open.

For snuggles and cuddles

With the sweet watercolor hues and graphic design, this is a kid cushion you'll totally want to steal for yourself. I think this would look especially sweet in a little book nook area or teepee playhouse. It's an adorable mate to the coordinating pink elephant quilt.

Minty fresh

I'm absolutely obsessed with this graphic print! The turquoise background and fuchsia trim is a fresh color combo that's right on trend.

Pretty in pink

Super-soft organic pajamas with long sleeves that are perfect for cooler weather. These jammies tend to shrink so you may want to order a size up.
