a tropical nursery...

A Tropical Nursery...  / via Oh Joy!

No longer are the days of typical nurseries and stereotyped color schemes. Many parents love decorating a nursery in a way that feels more chic, sophisticated, and like a space that a baby can grow with. So today, we have a tropical-inspired nursery for you and your babe! Tropical rooms can sometimes feel a little kitschy, but this space brings it in a few beautiful ways while making me want to go a vacation ;) Take a look...

Gender-neutral colors. We love that this vibe can work for both boys and girls. We used lots of shades of yellow and green for this space to give it that lush tropical vibe. The leaf rug brings all the colors together, and the bright yellow chair adds a playful pop of color.

Hints of the theme. To avoid getting matchy-matchy or too thematic, we added in fun little elements throughout the space to tie back to the tropical theme—like this fun leaf cut-out on the bookshelf.

Prints that can change eventually. A great piece of art that ties into the theme (like this coral reef photo on the wall) serves as a beautiful way to make a statement. But because it's not wallpaper or anything too permanent, it allows the flexibility to add to it or swap it out over time should you chose to change up the room at some point!

Oh Joy! for Clorox...

Oh Joy! for Clorox

As a busy working mom, I use Clorox wipes multiple times a day to wipe counters, cabinets, and really any surface that needs a quick clean from all the germs that inevitably make their way inside from school, the playground, and just life in general. So, I am SUPER excited to announce that we've partnered with Clorox this spring for their first-ever designer collaboration to bring you our signature Oh Joy! sense of color, cheer, and joy to your everyday cleaning. Come check it out... 

Oh Joy! for Clorox

We designed four different prints for their Disinfecting Wipes canisters. Each one is inspired by nature that blooms in the spring, sunshine, and just generally things that make for a happier day!

One of the things I love most about these is that they're pretty enough to leave out in your bathroom, kitchen, or any room that needs to stay germ-free and cheerful. Having them on the counter top and ready for quick clean-ups is a convenient way to stay on top of messes as they arise throughout the day. And of course, when it's time to deep clean, I don't have to stress as much because they kill germs, which makes spring cleaning THAT much easier. Spring cleaning is essential in our home to not only wipe away dirt and dust, but also to disinfect our home from all those germs that inevitably show up. Then, we can head into spring with a clean and fresh home ready for plenty of family fun!

You can find them at Walmart, CVS, Amazon and Target for a limited-time only... Spring cleaning has never looked so good!
