Beautiful Bedding with or without the Bumper

In our industry, things change constantly. Colors and patterns that were on trend this season may be very hard to find next season, our artisans are always coming up with gorgeous new pieces, and child safety standards are ever evolving. Over the past few years, baby bedding with bumpers has been a big topic of debate.

The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) filed a petition requesting that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) establish a performance standard for crib bumpers to distinguish between “hazardous pillow-like” and “non-hazardous traditional” styles.  JPMA’s current stance is that “traditional crib bumpers, when used properly, can prevent limb entrapment and head injuries.”

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), there is no evidence that crib bumpers protect against injury, but they do carry a potential risk of suffocation, strangulation, or entrapment because infants lack the motor skills or strength to turn their heads should they roll into something that obstructs their breathing.

We at Posh are supporters of parents. We believe that you will make the right decision for your baby. To help support this important decision, we have recently added many new bedding sets available with our without bumpers. Below are a few new beauties with designs that don’t dull without the bumper!

The trick? If you’re on the fence about using a bumper (or definitely don’t want to), find a bedding set with most of the pizzazz in the crib skirt. This way, you won’t feel like you are being cheated out of the look you want when the bumper is taken away.

Many parents purchase bumpers, but only use them when their baby is around 6-12 months (give or take). Babies around this range have the ability to move away from the bumpers if needed, will be protected from getting their little legs and arms caught, but aren’t quite big enough to climb up on the bumper. You know your baby best and will be able to determine what is right for their stage of mobility.

We, and our talented designers and artisans, make every attempt to progress with the industry. Our promise to you, our PoshParents, is to strive to find new products to fulfill your style cravings and safety concerns. So will it be a two or three piece set for your baby?

Pantone Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

Start the New Year with its new favorite color!

Radiant Orchid is popping up left and right to take over 2014. Whether it is interior design, fashion, makeup, or art, the color of the year will be HOT! Why do we love Radiant Orchid? This hue is perfect for creating a warming space that sparks imagination. With its vibrant personality, Radiant Orchid has certainly sparked ours.

{Shop Radiant Orchid} – 1234 – 567

Since the release of the Pantone Color of the Year, we have found ourselves drawn to any and every piece that resembles the unique shade. Our imaginations run wild with bold design ideas after coming across an orchid rug, pillow, lamp, or simply a fabric.

They are calling it radiant for a reason. Whether it’s an accent wall, beautiful bedding, or simply a throw pillow, any touch of Radiant Orchid will liven up your space. Don’t be afraid to go bold! Start your space with a neutral palette of grays or beiges, then introduce a few exciting accents. That way, it will be fun and easy to switch things out if you find yourself a new favorite (2015 color of the Year?).

Radiant Orchid for Interiors – Pantone’s Vision

Spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows.

Likewise, the vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.

Mixing & Matching at the Dinner Table

At PoshLiving, we have just added a tabletop section full of wonderful tableware! Nowadays, traditional table-setting rules have changed. So when selecting products, our mindset was, “as long as it looks beautiful, anything goes!”

We encourage you to try mixing our different patterns to create your own unique table. Designer, Christian Lacroix, has created whimsical patterns that go great together—if you want to leave the mixing-and-matching to him. His beautiful designs can also add a special touch to any table by complementing a solid dish that you already have.

Be adventurous and embrace color and shapes! Give thought to your dining experience! In this day-and-age of emails and texting, a meal is a very special way to connect us with our family and friends. Nothing is more welcoming than a well-set table and delicious food. The perfect way spread warmth and cheer.

Adding a touch of ‘modern’ to vintage plates that you already have can give your table a whole new look! This is what I try to do in my own home. I am always selecting a piece or two from our new collections to add a new spin to my old china.

This past Sunday, I had friends over for a relaxing dinner. I decided to use my flea market vintage plates with PoshLiving modern vinyl placemats (coming soon) to give it an updated look.  I added some colorful napkins as well as my Jaca glasses for a classic touch. These placemats make any table look gorgeous (and they wash wonderfully in the washing machine).

Cheers!

The Princess Palace Guide

Is your little girl a perfect princess? Then it’s time to make her feel like one! We’ve put together a guide to help you design the ultimate princess room.

How to Create the Perfect Palace for your Little Princess:

  1. Make it Pink! Little girls love pink and they’ll look so adorable surrounded by such a soft, feminine color.
  2. Personalize It.  This is her space, so add her name and initials wherever you can, this room is all about HER!
  3. Sparkle and Shine.  What princess doesn’t love a little glamour in her space? Use unique lighting or a gold leaf finish to add sparkle.
  4. Soften the room.  A princess is delicate and needs a soft place to rest her head. Choose luxurious linens for the bed with a soft shaggy raggy area rug to complete the room.
  5. Go Custom.  When everything just seems too “been there, done that” create a truly one-of-a-kind bedroom for your princess with a hand-painted mural and custom built furniture to match.

The Western Vintage Way

Whether you’re decorating a nursery, living room, or the whole house, designing with the Western Vintage way will bring a warm feeling to your space.

Nursery Inspiration: The Floor

Hi, all! I’m Mari from Arcadian Home blog, a beautiful place to find lots of decorating inspirations, including pretty rugs and lovely lighting fixtures from mini pendant lights to cute table lamps for the kids’ rooms. I’m so happy to be visiting with you at PoshTots today to share a guest post about pretty looks for nursery floors.

So what can you expect to see underfoot in the nursery today? I’ve brought along room images to show you a few of the myriad of possibilities for adding warmth and beauty to rooms for baby boys and girls. Please enjoy!

Nursery Floor

This spacious nursery is lovely in warm neutrals with pops of pink and lime. The soft brown rug is almost wall to wall, with just a few inches of wood showing around the edge. It’s a stylish, yet practical floor covering for baby’s first room.
