It looks great! Continuing the conversation from your last post, Is that Barroca?

I wish we were this far along in our kitchen renos. We are almost ready for rough inspections. I'm wondering if you could share, on or offline, the source and fabricator of your soapstone. I'm in Somerville, and still deciding with whom I am going.
Thanks!

I would love to use Curve Appeal in either of the two bathrooms I'm about to add to our home (Classic New England 6-bed, 1-bath...).

Lovely home! Kind of a strange comment, but it looks like the Stokke crib in your son's room has the old mattress. They were recalled about 2 1/2 years ago. You can call them up and they'll just pop a new, larger one in the mail. Oh my god, I just became one of those weird blog commenters.

Thanks for the shout out, Kristin! William's room looks lovely! I love the glider in gray. Ozzy has that rocking moose, too. So fun!

Build It Green in Long Island City has a constantly changing stock of lumber, as well as aisles and aisles of old solid core doors, which can be ripped down and used for some projects.

Team Umizoomi (Nick Jr.) is a math based show that teaches a lot about patterns and sequences (some pretty hefty design concepts). If you look closely, almost all of the animation is done in color blocks using origami patterns!

My son and I do it with colored tissue paper scraps, and then put them on windows. it's a really nice, abstract stained glass effect. I'll often cut the contact paper down to simple shapes of things we have been talking about lately, like birds or hearts around valentines day, etc. Once the collage is done, you can either stick it directly onto the window or laminate the collage with another piece of contact paper. That way you can hold on to them for a while, or send them off as a nifty little gift to the grandparents.

And you can find rolls of clear contact paper at most hardware and home goods stores.

Sorry. This purist is scoffing. There are inexpensive and fun coat racks that are plenty suitable for kids' spaces (and elsewhere). No need to perpetuate the dishonor of design icons.

You can use a salvaged bicycle wheel as the armature of a DIY mobile, or even a light fixture.

Thanks Klin...
Using your info, I figured out that it is called the "bundle bag" here in the States, and found it on several sites for about $54.

Does anyone know anything about the image of the stroller blanket in the Bugaboo pram? It looks more like a cocoon than just a blanket. Does DwellStudio make a foot muff, or is that a hack? I can't seem to find the product anywhere.

Thanks for all of the great feedback. We really miss this room and it's great to be able to see it on Ohdeedoh and share it with everyone.

The Bench/Bookcase is simply the Ikea Expedit, used horizontally. It's fantastically sturdy.

The dresser is a piece I picked up on Providence Craigslist, along with it's matching tall dresser, for a really low price tag. They both lived in our room until Ozzy came along. The long (probably almost 6'), low dresser is a perfect height for a changing table, and having all of that extra space up top is great for storing diapers, etc.

The paint color, I think, is Benjamin Moore Hibiscus. With the changing light, it shifts from greenish to yellowish all day long, which I loved. Didn't look so great at night, under the overhead light, though.

Thanks, again!

Thanks to everyone for the accolades.

The sofa is from Room and Board, and is the Jasper model with a custom tweed upholstery fabric. I believe, however, that they have since discontinued the long corner section, but a chaise option is available.

And, on the blogger's behalf, the [sic] is in fact a reference to an intentional misspelling. Our cat's name is Jonathan, spelled with an "a," although I can't explain why...

A toy car in each hand seems to satisfy our son on trips, but if your kiddos aren't as easy to please, a car seat organizer is a great way to stash a bunch of bells and whistles...

If you can't find the time or the skill set to sew your own car seat organizer, we sell them here:

We have more patterns in stock now--mostly of the striped or polka-dotted nature, so stop by if you are a Providence local or drop us a line.

I have been thinking about making some kind of oilcloth cover for my 1-year old son's place at the dining table, but when I looked into buying oilcloth, I realized that it is vinyl-coated and therefore phthalate-coated--not so good for a kid who eats directly off the table.

The only oilcloth that I've found sans-phthalates are made by Marimekko. They are gorgeous, although they boast a steep price-tag and are not, in fact, stain resistant. Seems that those pesky phthalates are good for some things.

Has anyone come across sources for toxin-free, non-porous oilcloth or have suggestions for a likewise material?
