a little party celebrating sweet slumber... 17 Apr 2014

Oh Joy for Nod Launch Party

A couple weeks ago, we held a launch party for the Oh Joy for Nod collection at the amazing Fig House space here in Los Angeles. Typically launch parties are at night and with adults only, so it was extra fun for me to have a daytime party that was made for kids to enjoy, too!

Although the Fig House (designed by the talented Emily Henderson) was intended for weddings and other evening events, it's amazing how beautiful it was in the day time, too, surrounded by all of the colorful bedding, decor, and florals by Yasmine.

There are so many beautiful new books coming out right now. I love the newest book by Holly Becker from Decor8 and Leslie Shewring, called Decorate with Flowers. Flowers are probably one of my favorite things in the world, and the inspiration and DIY's in this book are beautiful and inspiring. Congrats Holly and Leslie on another beautiful book!

ruby's big girl room... 7 Apr 2014

Oh Joy for Nod / Ruby's Room

The last time you guys saw Ruby's room was over 2 years ago. She was only 4 months old and so, so tiny! She's now a smart and sassy toddler ready for a big girl room of her very own. See our video at the very end to see the transformation from a baby room to a big girl room and Ruby's reaction when she saw it all...

We switched out her crib for a twin size bed that sits pretty low to the ground. It's safe to say Ruby's been pretty obsessed with her bed ever since and sometimes asks for a "time out" just so she can go lay in her bed.

We kept all the original storage we got for the room when she was a baby including Oeuf's Mini Library and those vintage dressers I got from Craig's List. We just updated her storage bins a bit and added some Oh Joy lamps to light the way.

She was pretty excited to play in her room and roll around on the rug. I swear, add a teepee into any kid's room, and they go crazy for it!

We also updated her windows with more streamlined darkening shades that you switch from light to dark in minutes and makes the transition from nap time to awake time so much better.

I'd say Ruby was pretty happy with the whole thing, and we're excited to have a room she'll love for years to come...

Oh Joy for Nod collection

I'm excited to announce the launch of the Oh Joy for Nod kids' bedding and decor collection! Inspired by Ruby and her transition to a big girl room, the collection is a limited-edition bedding and home decor line for kids. It includes baby, toddler, and kids' bedding, pillows, lamps, plush toys, rugs, and a curated collection of art to go with it all.

Oh Joy for Nod collection

The Sundae Best collection is inspired by Ruby's favorite food—ice cream—and how fun it would be to sleep surrounded by your favorite treat. I wanted to create an abstracted version of ice cream with sprinkle sheets and a cone-inspired pattern on the duvet. Topped with the ice cream cone and cherry pillows, it's seriously what my dreams are made of.

Oh Joy for Nod collection

The Pattern Party collection is inspired by the shapes that kids draw when they are first learning to draw and explore their creativity. I wanted to foster rooms that will inspire kids and give them the foundation for to help explore what else is possible in the world. All of the bedding is designed to be mixed and matched and to grow with your child so it doesn't feel too limited to babies and can also work for a pre-teen room as well.

On Monday, I'll be sharing before and after photos of Ruby's room as we transformed it from a baby room to a big girl room with my new collection!

happy friday + memories on paper... 28 Mar 2014

Oh Joy prints from Artifact Uprising

We create so many digital memories that I've been trying to print more photos and celebrate some of my favorite moments on paper, too. We recently made the most beautiful, thick stock prints through Artifact Uprising. I love having prints that are ready to be framed or ones that can just hang out on a shelf for displaying more casually.

Have a great weekend guys!

...children's paintings and drawings turning into perfect pieces of art by Sawyer Berson. While I am sure there's plenty of artwork to be framed in a child's lifetime, I love that this elevates and celebrates their creations for everyone to see.

a confetti table runner DIY... 20 Mar 2014

DIY Confetti Table Runner

After sharing images from our Garden Party brunch the other day, we had a lot of inquiries about the gold confetti table runner that graced one of the tables. So, I wanted to share this very easy, yet super pretty, DIY with you today.

DIY Confetti Table Runner

All you need is a roll of butcher paper (we used white but other solid colors would be pretty, too), glue dots, and jumbo confetti. We used the Oh Joy gold confetti dots which are unfortunately already sold out online but you can track them at your local Target store or you can also make your own dots with a big paper punch.

DIY Confetti Table Runner

Start by cutting a sheet of butcher paper to the length and width that you'd like. I like 1/3 the width of the table and at least two feet longer than your table so it hangs over about 1 foot on each end. Then, attach the dots to butcher paper in a gradient so that they start off light towards the center and get heavier and more concentrated towards the ends.

DIY Confetti Table Runner

The result is a table runner that feels ultra luxe and special using only paper and glue!

What was supposed to be an outdoor garden party brunch turned into an indoor event real quick as we had the biggest rainstorm to hit Los Angeles in years that day! Yet, you wouldn't even know it...see even more photos below...
