Airplane Kindergarten

How awesome is this kindergarten classroom?  I feel like it’s every kid’s dream come true.  A clever way to get kids more excited about kindergarten, yes?  In attempt to do just that, a clever headmaster in Georgia (the country, not the state) purchased a retired plane and transformed it into this adorable classroom. Who else is a little jealous?  You can see the article about this on Inhabitots. All images …continue…

Nursery Mood Board: Put a Bird On It

Yes!  Mood/Inspiration boards are back!  It’s been a few months, but mood boards have been resurrected just in time for spring. Ever since I watched the Portlandia “Put a Bird On It” sketch, it’s all I can think of when I see things with birds on them, and coming across this Bertram chair from Anthropologie was no different.  At once I decided to make a nursery surrounding this funky bird …continue…

Red & Green Nursery

I went with the colors of the season today.  Red and green don’t always go together well unless during the month of December.  But I think this collection is fresh enough to work all year round. 1. Red crib by Young America 2. Storage Bench by Serena & Lily 3. High Chair by Stokke 4. Glider by Dwellstudio from House&Hold 5. Red Car by Kid O from Fawn & Forest …continue…

Our favorite Mood Boards

It’s our birthday tomorrow! We’ll be one! So in honor of this event we’re looking back on the year.  Today instead of a new mood board we’re reposting some of our favorites.  Enjoy! Brieanne’s favorite was the Not-So-Mellow Yellow: My favorite was the Eclectic Comfort Mood Board: And the people who really matter are our husbands, Mike and Brandon. They support us everyday and allow us to spend our evenings on …continue…

Green Rocks!

I received the new CB2 catalog the other day and was excited to see a new (or at least new to me) rocker in a bold kelly green.  I haven’t sat in it, so I can’t vouch for it’s comfort level, but at $299 it certainly is a more affordable way to add a punch of color to your nursery.  I like the simplicity of its clean lines and soft …continue…

Peter Pan Nursery Mood Board — the Lost Boys

One of my all-time favorite stories/books is Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie.  I’ve read the book multiple times, seen the play, and watched almost every movie version out there.  To me it’s a beautiful story of imagination and holding on to some of that child-like wonder throughout life.  I really don’t even know why this story has always struck a chord with me, but somehow it captivated me as a …continue…

Purple Passion: A Toddler Room Mood Board

My almost-3-year-old niece Claire LOVES purple.  She wants to wear purple.  She wants to color with purple.  Everything is all about purple, all the time.  When she saw our pregnancy announcement, her response was “Oh!  Uncle B bring me balloons?  Maybe next time they be purple.”  Erica came up with the idea of doing a purple nursery for Claire, and then we decided to make it a toddler room since …continue…

Vacation Day 3: Eco Casual Mood Board

It’s day 3 of summer vacation here at chalk + dot, and for today’s post we’re going back to April with our breezy eco casual mood board.  A little bit cheery, a little bit relaxing, it feels perfect for this midweek day.   Are you planning your own nursery and struggling?  Is there a mood board idea you’re dying to see?  Let us know by dropping us a line at …continue…

Eclectic Comfort Mood Board

  I had zero inspiration or motivation to start this mood board last night.  I wasn’t feeling anything in particular but I had some pieces that I have been wanting to include in a mood board.  (The scallop clock from Etsy and the light fixture from West Elm.)  So I asked our Facebook and Twitter peeps for some help.  Sea Green was put on the table and I remembered this …continue…

Dad’s Den-Inspired Nursery

Well, on the heels of Father’s Day, I thought it appropriate to do a nursery inspired by the great men in our lives who have made us who we are today (love you, Dad!).  This would be perfect for the newest little man in your life–a sophisticated yet playful room to start out life in. 1. Book Mobile seen on SwissMiss 2.  Argyle Fabric by Robert Kaufman from Purl Soho …continue…
