DIYP-Mini Makeover & Giveaway!

*Update* Congrats to winner Mindy Waters

I've always had a secret love for modern things.

I love the sleek lines, the sharp edges, the funky colors.

It makes this traditional girl want to grow up into a modern girl!

Recently, All Modern Baby, contacted me about reviewing a product or two. I informed them that I was fresh out of babies. They pointed me towards their Mom and Dad product line. (But just in case a baby is ever dropped on my front step, I'd get this and this and this! And if I needed a high chair, I think this Stokke Tripp Trapp is groovy!)

I'm so glad they pointed me to their grownup stuff.

My family room is black and white without a speck of color.

We live in that room. Our indoor/outdoor rug used to be a creamy off white. It has been gray for a long time. I've always wanted to add a modern touch to the room.

I'm thinking green. 

Funky green throw pillow
Lime. Green. Rug.

What do you think? I think the pop of green on the floor and the sofa will make the room more fun, less formal. My 9 year is concerned because black, white and green don't match. 

I may have handicapped her future in modern home decor.

Go look around this amazing store! I spent entirely too much time browsing! Tell me what you like and you'll be entered to win a $50 gift certificate for anything in the store (baby or not)!

This giveaway ends on Saturday, so get those comments in!

(Stay tuned for my DIYP: Father's Day Edition)

I love modern - this store has so many nice things it was hard to choose just one but...I think the Klick Desk & Cube Chair (in green) is adorable & functional-would look fantastic in my lil' guy's room!

It would jog pleasant memories to have the Saarinen table and Tulip chairs in our eating area. . . because in 1961 my-mom-with-great-taste had this set in our North Dakota farm kitchen.

Darla~SassyHomemaker said...

I'm in agreement with the green. Kidz are HILARIOUS!

Bailey's Leaf said...

I just went to a black, white and green wedding and it was gorgeous!

RLR said...

Hmmm... the Jack Georges Milano Park Avenue Tote, (m)any of the Re-Gift Fabric Bags, Thomas Paul Small Kabuki, Large Coral, or Tree Tote. Can you tell I love bags?!?

Andrea said...

Loving the Bloom baby chair/bouncer thing. Perfect for my new little one coming this winter!!

Mandie said...

My baby is about to move into a toddler bed and we need bedding! I love the Robin Motif Crib Bedding!

I...ummm, I mean, my impending son, needs the Dachshund lamp!!! It's awesome!!

Jennifer Eastland said...

The P'kolino Kube storage blocks look awesome! I can't wait to organize all my kids' things! Four under 6 years old means lots and lots of "priceless treasures" that need homes!

rccalyn said...

Wow, I want one of everything in that store! One of my favorites is the Set of Four Adhesive Unfinished Decorative Wall Circles - I'm trying to do up my daughter's room and those would look awesome in there!

mommy4life said...

Wow! I love all their stuff but especially the Thomas Paul - Large Kabuki Tote in Black. Adorable with a capital A!

I love your green accents too!

Just Breathe said...

The products look really nice. I do love that high chair you picked out. I think the green would look great, I love that color. If not green I would go with red! Your room will look great with any additional color added.

mcmcolospgs said...

The little table and chair sets are exactly what I have been looking for! So cute!

Carlee said...

I love this site! Their wall art, especially the grids, are so funky.

GritsGirl said...

Wow neat store. I would pick the Prince Lionheart - bébéPOD Plus Infant Seat in Watermelon Red. I love the design!!! Thanks for the great giveaway!!

Surviving the Smiths said...

I like the wall art and rugs. I need one for boy's room and girl's room!

Cheri-Beri said...

I would get one of the tote bags because I'm kind of crazy about tote bags.

OH! And the green would be divine in your room!! Simply divine!

Pickles In My Shoe said...

You can definately do Black White and Green! Love it!
I love the pillows and rugs at Modern Baby. I just painted my LR chocolate brown so I want to use blue accents and I love the Habitat Pillow in blue!

shoutingforha said...

What a great store! They have so many amazing things... it's really hard to pick just one thing. If I was forced to choose, I would probably pick one of the tote bags.

JanMary said...

Love the splash of green you are adding, and I think it will look great with your trendy black and white.

I love the modern clean look of the items in this store - definitely saving the link for inspiration.

This light caught my eye: iittala - Koskinen Clear Lantern

Kay said...

I planned on looking for something for the house on the site... but as soon as I saw the handbags section, I knew that would never happen. Purse whore that I am, I fell in love with the Diane Von Furstenberg - Hearts Fashion Tote.

Jenny in Utah said...

I loved the little reading chair for the kids ... but they had a fantastic selection of rugs, for me!!!

I love it all but am in love with the soft baby blocks and the cute little magnetic animal set as well as the animal pillows, like I said I love it all, lol!

Thanks for the Chance to win!

Jaime said...

I love the water island monkey and all the wall art! What a great giveaway!!

Jennifer said...

I totally dig the Italtrike: Pilot 300 Tricycle for Two in Yellow. Who wouldn't love to drag their little sister along with them on the back of their trike? Gotta love the really good toys!!

Daniel and Cerissa said...

I really like the Parker Play Table... actually I really like all the chair and table sets, but I had to pick one!

I think the green rug will be perfect in your room. Black and White with a splash of bright color is so fun!

Love your blog :)

MarmiteToasty said...

Oh my, what have you done sharing the link, Im gonna be spending hours on the site LOL so fanks for that.... :)

I think the green will be fabulous..

elizabeth said...

I love green - as they say: it would make your room POP! :D
I just love the earthiness of the colour.

I would definitely have to get a good baby chair. Thanks for the opportunity!

Amanda said...

ahh! They have a Bilibo! And even better they have it in pink! Maddie would flip if she got one!

Julie Bagamary said...

I like the Non neutral brown leaf dinner plates.

Sara said...

I beg to differ with your 9 year old. My family room is green, black and white, with splashes of brown and orange here and there. Wonder how she'd deal with that? heh.
And I have to say, if the Fatboy Marimekko chair showed up on my doorstep, I wouldn't turn it away.

Jenn @ Beautiful Calling said...

Well I know your post was about rugs but I see they sell diaper bags. I would love a new one and htey have MANY cool ones!!

Thanks!

Stephanie said...

OK, that wall art/removable decals...so cute. I love the red tree and those owls are a hoot. :) Sad I know.

Kim said...

I would choose one or many of the Rubber Ducky's. Wow it would be so hard to choose. I love all the different colors and themes. As for the rug. I love the green and think it would really make the room.

Beth said...

They've got lots of great rugs!

LStewart said...

We are getting ready to move into a new home where Lil Man and Lil Bit will be sharing a room. There are several pieces of Wall Art I would love to have to decorate their room.

Laura said...

The kids' furniture is neat and the barware is VERY cool

Kimberly said...

Oh Me, Oh My!!! I went directly to the Mom and Dad section.....and to the storage containers (being on the organizing trip that I am on right now!). I found a bin that matches Evan's room perfectly! The Gio Aqua Storage Bin by Dwell Studio! Love it!

Meredith said...

What a great site! I love the Baby Star - Poodle Blanket in Chocolate Brown with Blue Flutter perfect for our little boy on the way. Thanks for a great giveaway!

hellolittlepeepers said...

I love, love, love the toy storage bags that end up being bean bag chairs. Not sure if that is the intention but that is what it looks like. So fun.

Shauna said...

What a great site. I like the P'kolino - Little One's Table and Chair Set in orange. My daughter really needs a table to play at and we can't afford one right now.
I love your blog.
Have a good day

It Feels Like Chaos said...

Cool site! I think that rug would look fabulous in your living room! I love the DwellStudio - Robin Motif Boudoir Pillow!

Lorie said...

Wow! There are so many things I like. Maybe a new toddler bed, or the little tables & chairs set, or a toy box.
And please tell your 9yo that black & white are neutral colors so they go with anything, even lime green. ;-)

midwestmom3 said...

Thank you so much!I love the Calligaris Gin Bar stools.

taradon said...

I need a new handbag and they have a very cute wristlet bag in blue. I want that one!

Bridget said...

Yep, you need that rug. ;) I think I do, too! Black, white and green go together!

I could spend a good hour or two on their site. I'd probably pick dinnerware, or their fun wall art, or a cool bowl....

McFadden Family said...

I like the DwellStudio - Chinois Blue Stanton Duvet Collection for me and the DwellStudio - Transportation Crib Bedding Collection for the baby.

Shannon said...

What a fab store!! I LOVE their baby/kids furniture. The toddler bed is gorgeous!!

Shannon said...

I'm in love with the Stokke - Xplory Complete Stroller! Sadly, I don't think that $50 will quite get me there, so I think I would pick out a cute rug.

bkokc00 said...

i love their wall art, so unique and modern, too cute!!

JJ said...

I love that Stokke Tripp Trapp highchair...

Sara said...

I like the dragonfly pillow from Dwell.

Mommyto3K's said...

I think Lime green is the perfect accent color to black and white. The rug and the pillows will look great in your family room.

J + P said...

I think green for the living room would be fabulous. I'm ALL about color - it makes everything so cozy & fun. As for the Web site, don't you love the Svan - Bouncer in Black/Baby Blue? I sure do! http://www.allmodernbaby.com/Svan-S7122-1-VQ1063.html

Thanks for the opportunity to win a gift card! My husband & I are hoping to have a baby soon & giveaways like this are right up my alley. :) Have a great day!

Anonymous said...

Jingle said...

I LOVE the Michael Graves Kitchen timer!!!

Katrina said...

I love the Anka by Svan - Mini Furniture Table and Chair Set! I've been wanting to get my son this for awhile.

Mandy said...

I'm loving the Botanical Wall art (actually all of the wall art is pretty snazzy!!) It would go great in my DD's room...

I also am loving the color scheme!

heresthediehl said...

so many cool things! i didn't have much time to look around, but in the wall art area alone i loved the chalkboard squares, the "save your marriage" sconces, and the wingard art...love it!

thanks for the giveaway!

Renee Holley said...

I'm not much for modern decor, but I think my teenage daughter would like the picture frame stickers.

Sarah W. said...

Sure, I'll take the whole store. No problem. If (and when) I win this, I would get the DwellStudio Chocolate Dots bag....well....because its so cute! And I am having a baby in 7 months who would love for mama to be cute :).
It's #3. Somehow I need to be cute!!!

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Mindy May said...

I love the iittala - Origo Orange Bowl! It is so beautifully colorful! I could pick out a bunch of things! Great store!

KristyRunyon said...

I love the animal shaped lamps. How creepy are those? I can just see me getting one of those and scaring the crap out of my husband with the pink pig. Have you seen the original Ammityville Horror movie? It would be like that floating pig outside. LOL

amanda said...

I love their wall sconces, and I am currently looking for some! How perfect!

sarah said...

I'm all over the tote bags, but the Offi Dog Lamps really caught my eye. So fun!

Berji's domain said...

What a cool lot of toys! I really like the Sevi musical instruments and the building blocks.

The green would look super in your family room. Since my kids live in the tub, I thought the Boon - Frog Pod Storage was really neat!

aggiemomof2 said...

Great stuff. I love this: Season Tree Decals and the chalkboard circles.

Superchikk said...

I am desperately in need of a new "everyday" diaper bag - you know, the kind you throw in the car for quick trips. Mine has fallen apart. And pick one? I'm not sure I can do it! They are all so awesome!

Valencia said...

OHHHH I'm moving thsi summer and would love to have some fresh new items in my home!!!

Composing Hallelujahs said...

I like the Hiva Toddler Bed--my little boy's going to need a bigger bed soon.

Richelle said...

I love all the cute little wooden toy cars. My son would enjoy those!

thediaperdiaries said...

Black, white and lime is one of my FAVORITE color combos!! I need a new diaper bag for baby #3. There were a million I loved :)

Jessica Morris said...

I love a lot of their bedding! I think maybe the egg toddler in pumpkin would be my pick, but I'd have to run that design by the hubby :)

Mr. and Mrs. Nurse Boy said...

The handbags are amazing. I am afraid I cannot pick just one! So fun and I love the colors, but then again I like the more neutral ones as well.

Whimsical Creations said...

Love the Wall Candy Arts - Fly Society Removable Wall Decals. I would love to put those in my hall. =D

Kim said...

The touch of green would be so pretty! And great for summer too!

Sharon said...

Oh My....it's hard to pick a favorite. I guess I'd have to pick the DwellStudio Chocolate Dots Storage Bin.
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Alexia said...

OMG I am in love with the wall decals! I really like the Nightly News (owls) and the tree! (my boys would love the Transport decals!)

ryleeandnoahsmom said...

I think the Kenneth Wingard - Star Grande Mobile in Polished Steel would look really cool as wall art, rather than as a mobile. Modern, but not overly so.

Nicole said...

I like their handbags. Very cute stuff!

April said...

I like the green :)

As much as I like the deco glass it would 1.get broke fast 2. be another thing I would have to dust so I opt for the hanging magazine rack

Lynn said...

The wonderworld geo shape sorter or the play food are my favorites. Thanks for the chance!

Shelly said...

What a great store for modern babies! I loved the palatte plate, with the different food compartments for baby.

And I would definately go for the green in your living room. I have an affinity for that shade of green.

Jesabella said...

This is the exact color scheme we are going for in our bedroom and we are going from modern to a modern/traditional outlook for our home decor. Love it!
