1. This Wonderfully 'Wild' Nursery Has Some Surprises in Store for Baby
More graphic fun, but with a pillow this time. This kid's got a head start on his own collection of wild friends! (I'm assuming the pillows are removed by the time the baby actually is in the crib, so don't fret.) That blanket looks oh-so-soft, and I do appreciate a good Swiss Cross.
It's easy to spot the Scandinavian influence in this room, but I think Benjamin's mom did a great job of mixing in a lot of personal style to warm things up.
There are a lot of grown-up elements found here which I think translate well into a nursery space, but I'd love to hear your thoughts. Is this space young enough for a baby, or too mature for your taste? Let's discuss!

3. The most psychedelically blissed out nursery you've ever seen
The view from the hallway is to die for! If I were a baby, I would be so pumped when my parents brought me home to live here. I mean, neon skies and deer? A funky owl perched in a tree blooming purple flowers? Yes, please.
This is the shot that sold me! Wooden rocking chair, photos of Mom & Dad, day-glo owls cuddled close together..in short, my dream bedroom wall. I would like Eve to come paint my entire apartment, please.
This may be a bold statement, but I have a feeling that bad dreams are virtually impossible when your crib is this brilliant.
4. MONOCHROMATIC BLACK NURSERY ROOM THEME COLOR WITH JACK SKELLINGTON NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS NURSERY BEDDING PLUS FAIRY LIGHTS AROUND WINDOW
Do you remember the fun day before Christmas? I think everybody knows it and they always celebrate it. Obvious, something scary is also pleasant for some people. They use this sense to creating closer nuance with the family member and or friends. Halloween comes before Christmas and after thanksgiving. It happens on October, 31rd and all people from kids until adult celebrate it. Nowadays, I present unforgettable nightmare before Christmas for kids and it is visualized by these beddings.

6. Beauty From Elle Decor
This month's Elle Decor showcases photographer Pieter Estersohn's penthouse on Gramercy Park, which he shares with his partner, Raul Baez, and their son, Elio. For us, this is the textbook definition of a perfect life.
Stand-outs include the wall cabinet in the kitchen (by Jean Prouvé and Charlotte Perriand), and the stunning terrace and pergola (designed by Ellen Honigstock). Son Elio's bedroom with a photo mural shot by daddy Estersohn while on assignment in Udaipur is both hysterical and fabulous.
This editorial piece singlehandedly renewed my faith in US Elle Decor, a magazine which for the last several months has left me uninspired and underwhelmed. (Is it just me... or is anyone else getting bored of seeing homes of the rich or famous that were tastefully put together by professional designers, yet reflect more the vision of the designer than the tastes/quirks/character of the owner? The message conveyed by those sorts of homes seems to be: "Yes, money CAN buy you taste!"--which we all know is a load of horseshit.)
This apartment completely blew me away, right down to the... yes, dare i say it?... photo mural! (Though it reads much more as "fabulous" than "hysterical" to me.) This apartment was really like a breath of fresh among the homogenous-feeling (and -looking) spaces the mag has recently been featuring... It exmplifies how I personally would like to live--in a space that feels very personal and is loaded with personality.
The accompanying text of the piece really contextualizes the design choices made, and drives home the fact that every object carries some sort of memory or posseses some sort of personal history. So, it isn't really fair to judge the place from these 4 screen grabs. (Plus the colors didn't really translate well on this posting.)
7. Christina Aguilera's Nursery
We're definitely envious of the size of the room and the mural on the back wall looks great. But we're not so sure about the big, scary crescent moon. Readers, tell us what you think.

10. Jaws Rooms
Reginella made the bed for his nephew, 2-month-old Mikey Melaccio. Looks like the kid might develop either an extreme fear of sharks or an affinity for them!
