Welcome to my longest written post ever.

Size Small & La Petite…

There is something so sweet and stylish about modern children’s furniture.  The itty bitty sizes are just so adorable!  Little nest carries designer chairs and tables for children including the mini-e, a child-sized replica of the 1956 Eames lounge chair and ottoman by Charles and Ray Eames.

Wallpaper. The name alone inspires me!  What is so great about wallpaper is how instantly it changes the aesthetic and feel of a room.  You could have the most boring room with lack of color and adding one wall of paper makes the most dramatic change. Do you find wallpaper appealing?  Do you think its [...]
