Friday Five: Dot Dot Dash and Girlie Nurseries

It’s been a minute since I’ve done a Friday Five, but I’m not going to get all stereotypical and apologize. Instead, let’s just get right to it, shall we?

1. This pink-and-gray little girl’s nursery

I k now we’re having a boy, and we’re THRILLED, but rooms like this really make me wish I could girl it up in that little baby’s room. Maybe we’ll have a chance someday, and I’m definitely keeping this on file for that eventuality. From the vintage touches and color combos to THAT PINK CHANDELIER, this room is so amazing and cozy. In fact, their whole house is awesome, and you can catch a tour of it over on Houzz.

2. This living room from Lonny magazine

Lonny magazine made over this Brooklyn apartment with pieces from Restoration Hardware’s Big Style Small Spaces collection. I just love this room and this shot — the way the deer’s head looms over it all, the black pendant light, the abrupt modern leather chaise lounge set in front of the cozier, more cottage-y pieces. Just gorgeous.

3. This entryway

This is another meticulously styled interior shot by Douglas Friedman Photography. I love the gallery wall, the black doors, the details in the bookcase and then that amazing spray of pink flowers.

4. These DIY surprise balls

I can just imagine being a kid and tearing into these to gradually reveal an assortment of cool little toys and candy pieces. By winding the crepe paper around and around while tucking the toys and candy into the strands as you go, you create this awesome little gift bomb that would delight any child — OK, or adult. I’m totally keeping this on file for when Bean is big enough to enjoy something like this.

5. This amazing morse code name necklace

OK, really. If this wasn’t $400 (only $80 for gold fill or sterling silver) I would totally have asked for it numero uno without a doubt for Christmas this year. It uses a series of long and round beads to spell out the name or text of your choice, all strung on a silk cord in the color of your choosing. This is such a cool and understated version of the name necklace, I can’t even stand it.

    My sister did those surprise balls last Christmas for my kid, my nephew and my cousin’s kids. It was really fun! She did them in all white paper and called them magic snowballs. Definitely a fun activity to keep the kids busy at Christmas while the grown-ups talk.
