I'm late to jump on the bus here, but the custom baker's cart... May I ask where you had it made? I'm desperate for something of those dimensions and have had the hardest time finding anything! Thanks.

I need to know where that wood rolling cart in the photo came from! I've been on the hunt for that excat item for months! Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

The closet doors are actually window treatments from Ikea that are modular, can be fitted with lots of fabric options, and slide from side to side, hung from a track.

The child's shopping cart in the hallway is by Plan Toys, and I actually bought it at the Gap store on Michigan Ave.

The rug under the crib is a set of 8 tiles by Flor - "Stampede" pattern.

The guest bed is covered in a total mix of things! The dark gray coverlet and shams are from Room & Board, the light gray shams are from Garnet Hill, the beige duvet is so old I don't remember its origin, and the bed skirt is just an old cheap tapestry (I think from Urban Outfitters) that I pinned strategically into the right shape.

Thanks again for all the feedback!

I believe the water tower bank was a MoMA store purchase - actually a gift from the same great friends who gave us the Flensted fish mobile. Friends with good taste are priceless :)

The yellowish wall paint is Benjamin Moore Mustard Field - from the low VOC version of the BM line. The rest of the room (and our whole house) is Benjamin Moore China White. The window treatments are a work in progress. I had a very specific shade of gray in mind, and an unusually wide and tall window space to cover. I would have had to go with custom drapes and didn't want to spend the money, so I found two perfectly sized linen-y gray tablecloths from Crate and Barrel and hung them with clip rings (rings and rod are from West Elm). I'm still not 100% satisfied with that detail, but inspiration will strike again I'm sure :)

Thanks, everyone! Let me try and answer your questions...

The bed is a full, not a twin. It's a great size for guests and for sitting and reading, dressing the baby, etc.

The crib is the Oeuf Sparrow: http://www.oeufnyc.com/sparrowcollection.aspx

The hot pink fabric camel sitting on top of the tall bookshelf is from Cost Plus World Market - I just stumbled on it in the store.

The wall in the hallway was our architect's idea - It's the exterior of the freestanding closet that opens into the nursery on the other side. It's just MDF board of various widths nailed to the closet frame and painted over.

Thanks again for the positive feedback! Who knows, maybe I'll get around to posting a whole-home tour one of these days :)

Thanks! The round rocking chair in the hallway is from IKEA, purchased maybe three years ago. I put one of the small IKEA sheepskins on the seat to soften it, since it's made of bungee webbing. Not the most practical chair, but I do love how it looks!
