When I first started thinking about what kind of items I wanted for our baby, everything was totally neutral and beige.
The Snugabunny Swing
A silver diaper bag
But this is a good reason to create a registry early. When I looked at all of the items together, they just looked sooooo boring. I have a tendency to love neutrals because they go with anything and I don’t get tired of them. Grey is my current favorite color aside from my long-standing love for green! I was (and still am) afraid of my household turning into a circus of colors that felt overwhelming and mismatched, so I played it safe. Too safe.
Since this realization, I’ve been browsing all kinds of modern mom sites and researching some of the newer products out there. I’m still disappointed that there isn’t even more variety out there since there is such a huge market for baby stuff.
I love the modern look of this swing, but I think it’s TOO modern for our house (I want the colors though!)
So I’ve decided on the well-reviewed Zen swing instead. I don’t loooove the colors, but it’s one of the better reviewed swings out there and color choices are very limited. (If I could find a travel size swing that had an AC adaptor and a nice color palette, I’d be sold!)
I love that the base comes off so I won’t need a separate portable seat for carrying the baby room-to-room with me.
Love this collection of bibs from Babies R Us
I’ve changed the tune of the rock n play sleeper to this orange + green one, that I think is a bit more playful for a little boy (gotta love the bear bonus!)
Love this high chair – matches our dining room shade! (And folds up teeny tiny when not in use)
I changed the carseat to this green beauty:
Our crib is still a neutral color, but as far as cribs go, it’s on the bolder side of the spectrum.
And to match my nursery theme, I chose this diaper bag, which I love!
Greens, oranges, yellows, greys.
Modern mom in the making.
I would love some suggestions of cool, modern-looking brightly colored baby items that you guys have come across!
