Gifts for The Llama Lover

Ok…so the weekend before Christmas may be a little too last minute for a Christmas gift post, but I wanted to add my two-cents to the holiday gift guide conversation with a quickie on gifts for the llama lover:

llama gifts

Have I mentioned that I’ve collected llama figurines since I was a kid? It’s a goofy hobby that those closest to me are aware of, and since then my life has become filled with llama artwork, towels, mugs, and figures from friends. So needless to say, I’m happy the home decor world has found potential in these weird creatures too, and we now have a varied selection of llama miscellanea to choose from! Enjoy 🙂

A Persian Rug and a Mid-Century Nursery

 

A week ago, I was inspired by a little Persian runner on Chairish with colors I thought would be fantastic for a nursery: yellow, blue, and red. A few nights later I had dinner with two former coworkers (and now good friends!), one of which has two adorable, quickly growing twin toddlers, so the topic naturally turned to them. I took that as a sign to put together a nursery designed around the rug.

I love the combination of Persian or “traditional” style rugs with a MidMod aesthetic, so needless to say I went with that theme–and after finding a few cute vintage pieces, including a vintage Eames style rocker in bright yellow and an amazing new, modern crib from DwellStudio, the look came together. It ended up being a fairly modern look with bits of Mid-Century inspiration.

Now I’m not looking into having kids anytime soon, but I find nursery design so fun! It’s definitely a place to take the objects you loved as a child and create a whimsical space for your own…or simply enjoy designing with less “adult” items (notice the Nate Berkus llama–I HAD to add it!). Enjoy!
