Bohemian Nursery Ideas

Another day another girl's room! And you know what that means... more floral prints ;) I want the baby's room to coordinate with the new big girl room, but not necessarily match. Here's what I've come up with.

 boho nursery ideas // Kay & Edna

pinspiration // We're keeping the walls a clean, slightly warm white (exact color TBD) to let all of the pretty colors and textures from all of the many blankets I've accumulated be the star. Seriously, how do they keep making prettier blankets from one baby to the next? And more importantly, how does one say no to them? #youdont

basket // Planning to incorporate lots of natural textures with those cozy blankets.

quilt // I've been eyeing this lovely piece for a few months now, but the international shipping prices were giving me the scaries. Clearly not enough to stop me from adding it to the cart. YOLO.

crib // My one area of financial responsibility in this room - each of our girls has used the same crib. Hand me downs for the win.

wall hanging // Obsessed with the blush tones in this pretty weaving. I'm also considering this one, the rainbow detail is so sweet.

mirror // I found a mirror at Goodwill for a cool $5 but I have this one in white in my bathroom and I love all of the texture it brings to a room.

bigfoot stuffy // I mean a tiny baby snuggling a big foot? I don't think it gets cuter than that.

garland // When in doubt, put a garland on it.

rug // The rug that started it all. I bought this first before I had an idea of what I was going to do in this room because it was love at first sight. It isn't quite as pink in person (scroll down to see my shot of it) which actually makes me like it even more.

rocker // Admittedly, this is not the comfiest looking rocker. But hot damn it's cute. 

art // When your friend unearths a roll of old castle blue prints from the depths of another friend's storage space, you jump on that sh*t and claim one for yourself before she can think twice about it. Here are some more options if you aren't lucky enough to someone who just happens to have some laying around.

blanket // I don't see myself getting sick of this shibori trend anytime soon.

Eclectic Shared Girls' Room Ideas

We are deep into operation "kick the girls out of their room to make room for the tiny baby" over here. I think they're pretty excited for their new digs and I'm not ashamed to say, I can't blame them #humblewithadashofkanye. It is quickly turning into my favorite room in the house, so while we're working on piecing it together for the big reveal, I wanted to share a mood board with some details we're planning to incorporate into their big girl room.

 shared girls room // eclectic kids room

pinspiration // Further down the list I'll get into what gave me the initial inspiration for this room, but these images gave me a clearer vision of where I wanted to take it. *Cue desperate search for a vintage fireplace surround. Spoiler alert - I found one at a salvage yard for fifty clams and I don't think I've ever bragged about a find so much in my life. It's amazing.

mirror // I just so happened to have an ornate gold framed mirror hanging out in this room when it was a crash pad for college pals and decided to hang onto it. But Anthropologie makes a pretty nice one too.

wallpaper // La pièce de résistance. This was a bit of a gamble as I went all in and ordered two rolls without seeing them in person first, compounded by the fact that I had no idea how to install wallpaper, but oh mah lord it was worth the nerves and sweat. No blood or tears required.

wall color // I learned a very valuable lesson when picking out this wall color - trust your local Sherwin Williams expert #notanad. I brought the wallpaper in and had a few colors picked out when I asked for Justin's opinion and told him what I was hoping to achieve. He steered me in a completely different direction and I am so grateful that I put my ego aside and listened to him. ALWAYS put the paint chip up in the room of question and take a good look at it in different lights throughout the day before you drop your cash. This color turned out the most perfect shade of barely blue/gray I could have dreamed of.

kitty cat stuffy // I've been oogling these blabla dolls since our oldest was born, but just haven't been able to pull the trigger. I'm thinking they might be a sweet "sorry I stole your room" gift from the baby.

twin beds // The good news is we only had to purchase one of these bad boys since it's the same big girl bed that our oldest has had for the past three years. The bad news is Ikea went and changed the design a bit, so they won't match perfectly, but I'm kind of into that eclectic vibe anyway so we'll just go with it.

rainbow fiber art // These colors are just too good. I'm super into macrame right now and I love this twist on the traditional wall hanging.

bedding // PB Teen had a ridiculous sale a few months back and I couldn't help myself. You know I love me a peachy pink and the umbrella stripe design also reminded me of "falling down the rabbit hole" which probably sounds completely out of left field at this point, but I'll explain a bit more if you stick with me to the end. Pssst - I just checked and they're still marked way down so if you love 'em, put a ring on 'em.

throw pillow // The new Opalhouse line at Target is ridic, so this particular pillow appears to be sold out, but if you love some bohemian flair as much as I do you should go check out some of their other gorgeous options.

basket // To be honest we have way more stuffies than this basket can handle, but in a perfect world I would get rid of all the riff raff and casually toss a well curated collection of just the faves into this guy.

wall art // At last, we come to the very first item I purchased for this room, which hopefully explains the Alice in Wonderland reference a few items up. Alice is one of my very favorite Disney movies, not to watch - because it's pretty trippy, but because of the gorgeous animation/colors. I also went through a phase where I felt like I related to way too many quotes via the Mad Hatter, which probably tells you more about myself than you'd like to know.

So there you have it! We'll do a follow up post when the room is ready to live in, but until then you can look forward to a similar sneak peek into what the baby's new digs will hopefully resemble.

How To Style a Bodysuit 101

I say bodysuit, you say...

a) not since 5th grade

b) you mean a onesie?

c) nope, no thank you.

If any of these options were your answer, we need to talk. The bodysuit, while slightly intimidating/can bring forth flashbacks of "snapping issues" from the days of elementary school bathrooms, can quickly turn into a go-to wardrobe staple.

Kay and Edna - How To Style A Bodysuit

Bodysuit & Shorts

A super simple way to ease bodysuits into your everyday wear is to swap one in for your favorite tee. No need to over think it. If you're feeling self conscious at first, top it with your favorite sweater/jacket.

Bodysuits for Date Night

Whether you're heading out for cocktails on the patio or you're about to get down on the dance floor at your second cousin's wedding, bodysuits are a great alternative for a night out on the town.

Bodysuits in the Bedroom

Perhaps the most obvious way to wear them. Bodysuits are super sexy. 

Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Let's cut right to the chase - no boxes of chocolates and/or red roses for the big V-day. Who decided to put orange creme in a perfectly good chocolate?? And those flowers had better be pink, sir.

This revelation got me thinking about some other alternatives for the "classic" (overdone) gifts exchanged on February 14th.

DIY Heart Box // If you're going to go the card route, let's put a little effort into it. Loving this homemade card box that you can fill with your Valentine's favorite sweets, or maybe jewelry. Some undies? Just sayin.

Dinner at Home // Save some "dough" and create a "heartfelt" dinner right from your own kitchen! (See what I did there?) Find out how to make them here.

Pretty Robe // I don't buy red lingerie for our shop, would you like to know why? Because it reminds me of cheap Valentine's Day lingerie. There, I said it. Go the classy route and get something that won't get shoved to the back of the skivvies drawer for a year.

Sweets // Give me a standard gummy bear and I'll raise you a champagne infused boozy bear.

Vase // What does one do with long stem roses, anyway? I don't imagine they would fit in a standard vase, which would require you to cut them, which in turn would remove their precious long stems. WTF is the point of all that? 

Wine // Don't mess with a good thing.

K&E Holiday Gift Guide - The Yoga Girl

I usually land on my face when attempting crow. Yoga keeps me humble.

Kay & Edna Gift Guides - Yoga Girls

Bralette // Just in case it gets too hot in there to keep your shirt on, better make sure you're looking good underneath.

Face Wipes // Hot yoga is my favorite because it feels like a sauna. But doing yoga in a sauna is going to make you really sweaty.

Yoga Mat // I like my yoga mats to have some personality. They must also be soft enough to catch my face, so I like this one a lot.

Hair Ties // The messiest of messy buns deserve a cute companion. 

Gym Bag // Didn't quite stick that bird of paradise? No worries girl, we know you tried.

Water Bottle // This guy should keep fellow yogi's from putting their mats a little too close to yours. Spikes kind of scream "I need my space".

Leggings // The higher the waist, the bigger the brunch after you shavasana. And that's what it's really all about.

Sweater // When it's all said and done you can wrap yourself up in this blanket of cozy.
