AFK Inspired Design

Anxious to take advantage of our awesome, ground-breaking, savings offer on the Art For Kids Collection (details at bottom) , but don’t know where to start? Let our Lead Designer, Patty Grogan, lend a hand! Her daring designs and helpful hints are sure to give you inspiration for any room.

Gender Neutral Nurseries: Pale pinks, blues, and greens are popular choices when it comes to color selections, but you can easily get locked into boy/girl specific colors. With so many great choices of fabric, wall coverings and paint, colors can take a room to the next level. Like pink? Make it coral with a pop of teal blue. Want a blue hue? Goodbye baby blue, hello navy. Add brighter greens and a pop of orange. Mix in patterns by trying a fun patterned wall covering on one wall and paint the other walls a complementary solid.

Going Beyond Pink and Lavender: Your little girl has grown out of the pink, cutesy animal character print on her bed and now it’s time for an update. Start with a sophisticated, yet sweet, French-style bed in cream or white.  When selecting colors for her room, try using a fresh, feminine color palette in soothing teal blues and pale yellow. Select a geometric contemporary wall covering as a focal point for one wall adding interest and complementing, not overwhelming, the overall feel of the room.

For furniture, bedding and decor continue with cream/white, pale teal, soft yellow and add an unexpected pop of black – she’ll love it!

Daybed Design:

Daybeds can be a great alternative to a standard bed in a boy’s bedroom or girl’s bedroom. This bed style is also great in nurseries as a place for parents to rest and in playrooms for sleepovers, especially when the daybed as a trundle.

Daybeds can float in the room as a centerpiece and make a style statement or can be placed in front of a wall, which gives a casual living room feel and takes up less space in a room. Color flexibility is a great attribute of daybeds as well – there are many wood and metal finish options as well as fabric options for upholstered daybeds – which are so very popular now.

Try a contemporary style daybed, select a neutral base color and add lots of bright or patterned pillows to spice it up. You can change your style anytime by just replacing the bedding, pillows and other accessories.

Maternity Springs Fashion Forward!

Have another baby on the way? Become a Super Mom with style! There’s no need to compromise when you convert a fabulous PoshTots diaper bag into a fashion-forward, yet practical purse. Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Spring 2013 inspired us to create a few maternity looks based around diaper bags.

Maternity Monaco

We styled a maternity outfit around PoshTots beautiful Petunia Pickle Bottom Waterloo Stop City Carryall. You can look oh-so chic while carrying a diaper bag filled with all your essentials. A simple white dress and accessories are paired with the diaper bag to make its blue hue really pop.

One of the color trends for Spring 2013 is Monaco Blue (Pantone 19-3964), a PoshTots’ favorite!  Another color is Linen (Pantone 12-1008), so we styled both colors together in this savvy fashion color story. Adding a dusk blue scarf (also on trend, Pantone 16-4120) that matches the necklace’s top row of beads will have you sporting three out of the ten trending colors for this spring.

As a mother or mother-to-be, you need time to pamper yourself! Dressing in a pretty outfit can help you do this and makes you feel beautiful. PoshTots offers many mommy necessities that work wonderfully with trendy outfits.

Designer Hervé Léger who worked with Monaco Blue for the spring/summer season says that the color palette looks good on all, but especially compliments any cool skin tone with a pale tint.

Maternity Nectarine

Nectarine (Pantone 1-1360) is another one of the colors in the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2013. We have styled this outfit around our Elizabeth Shoulder Sak diaper bag in Camel to incorporate this great color that looks good on all skin tones. Other fashion trend colors for the spring include brights! According to designer David Meister, brights are the new neutrals so pairing this outfit with a red or other bright lipstick will really make everything pop.

Another great thing about this diaper bag from PoshTots is that it’s so versatile. Even when you no longer have a baby in diapers, you can use it for so many things. The camel color will always be in style and is considered a “classic” in the fashion world. Later it can be used as an overnight bag or a tote for anything!
