Is it too early to start planning for the Holidays? Maybe. I certainly can’t get my mind to go that far ahead. But it won’t hurt to browse the beautiful Holidays cards from Minted’s new 2011 collection. I am so happy to say that this year, Minted will be selling one of Trendy Peas’ designs, our very own “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” card. This design is available in three colors variations. And Minted has a great selection for backer options, envelope liners, and mailing address labels. Be sure to check our design and many more designs available at Minted here. Enjoy!
No matter what, family and friends will always be there for you. I recently entered Marcus’ room in a décor contest. What a fun and insane ride that was. We ended up losing the contest by 2 votes. But we had a great time watching the close score. It felt like Brazil was playing in the finals of the soccer world cup and we just didn’t score that last goal. But it made me feel really special. I could not believe all the friends and family that voted for Trendy Peas. 218 votes. My mom was calling me at 11:30 pm to see how the contest was going, my sister and brother-in-law were following everything on facebook and asking friends to join them, and we also had a great response and comments from other supporters. So THANK YOU all. Thank you for all that voted. I start my day today not wondering about 2 more votes but overwhelmed about the 218 votes. Cheers!
I am thrilled to announce Trendy Peas’ latest product. Our large Bird family mobile is sure to add a special touch to that special little nest. This beautiful mobile is made from acrylic which reflects light and creates a piece that can be used as a focal point in a room. The mobile comes with a clear thread and it is available in six other colors. Check it out here. I would love to hear your thoughts.
Here is Marcus’ big boy bedroom. One of my favorite rooms in the house.
I wanted to create a room for Marcus that was very functional and stylish at the same time. I also wanted the room to be a continuation of the style and decor of our home. So I opted for neutral tones, with lots of brown, white, beige, creams and then pops of colors here and there. I knew that if I used a neutral color palette I would not have problems creating and sourcing decor items for the space. The furniture is from IKEA. The bed is placed flushed with the dresser and a piece of stained maple wood lays on top to create a one-piece furniture that works really well for the space. We use the same stained maple wood at other places in the room to tie everything together. Having the bed against the wall makes the room more spacious and gives Marcus more areas for playing.
I created the wall canvasses, wallpaper, and acrylic bike décor so all the colors would work together with the adorable bedding by dwell studio. The bike décor is Marcus favorite piece of the room. The bright red acrylic really stands out. I guess I could say that the bike is also my favorite piece in the room.
I am very pleased with how it turned out. The room is bright, elegant, functional and fun.
