Nursery Room Ideas :: The Animal Print Shop

What spawns the design for a nursery room? Often times it can be a fabric, paint color or even crib design. However, in some cases its the artwork. This is certainly the case for many of the nursery rooms that feature the beautiful photography of animals by Sharon Montrose. From forest to farm, Montrose has captured the most amazing images images of animals (many babies themselves) perfect for an infant’s new space and sells them directly at The Animal Print Shop. Here are a few of my favorite nursery room ideas found on their blog.

The Bloom Workshop California

The Bloom Workshop // Northern California 2015The Bloom Workshop discount code

Do you remember my Michaela who interned for me a few years ago? Her grandmother always told her to dream big and dream she did. Last year, Michaela and her friend Ashley launched The Bloom Workshop. And not surprisingly it’s been a huge success! The hands-on workshop was designed for creative women who are eager to learn about blogging, social media, photography, interior design and styling. Our goal is to share our knowledge on how each of these topics work together to help take blogs or businesses to the next level. Bloom’s mission is to help fuel women’s creative passions, establish authentic community, and help each attendee feel confident in their small business or blog. With special sessions on the specifics of blogging, social media best practices, design, styling and photography, a styled photo shoot to practice the skills guests just learned, and a Q&A session with a panel of experts this is a great opportunity for all eager to learn, network and hone creative skills.

Lulu & Georgia Giveaway and Bathroom Styling

bathroom styling // simplified bee

Our new bathroom still needed a little styling especially one wall above the toilet. I teamed up with Lulu & Georgia for some super chic decor items for the space. I instantly fell in love with a photograph of a beautiful cactus plant. The gray tones and organic pattern look amazing with the marble tile. Love it! I also spotted the Retrograd Vase and liked it’s mid-century modern vibe. I filled it with succulents from my garden for a pop of color. To finish out the look, I selected a three wick candle housed in a timeless tin with a metallic knob. The cedar with scent with hints of vanilla is amazing. Every bathroom needs a candle like this – and don’t forget to pair it with an adorable matchbox like this! And for a limited time, grab some for yourself at 20% OFF at LuLu & Georgia using discount code: BEE20 (expires 10/22/14).

CanvasPop Review & Discount Code

Sometimes the best artwork is the most personal. Having family photos reproduced on canvas (large or small) is a wonderful way to preserve and showcase travel, loved ones and life’s precious moments.

When CanvasPop, a leader in canvas photo prints, asked if I would review their product I was thrilled. In fact, I asked a client (who is also an excellent photographer), Suzanne O’Brien if she would be willing to help me out with the review. She picked  a sweet photo of her daughter holding some of my favorite flowers, pink peonies. Here’s the amazing result and what Suzanne had to say about it:

CanvasPop Discount Code

I couldn’t be more pleased with my new CanvasPop photo canvas. The colors are rich and vibrant on the textured canvas. When I showed the piece to my family, my son remarked, “wait, did you paint that?” It does have a beautiful artistic quality to it. The 20×20 size is large enough to make a statement, yet small enough to fit easily on an existing gallery wall. Perfect for my daughter’s “personality wall” that I’ve been slowly adding to for the last few years. My vision for this space is for her to go to sleep at night with a visual reminder of all the good things that make her her. – Suzanne O’Brien

CanvasPop discount code for 30% off

Did you know CanvasPop can even work with your low resolution, instagram or facebook photos and format them to any size canvas? They also offer a digital proof before the image goes to print to ensure it’s just right  and you are 100% satisfied – love this!
