Lorena Canals Machine-Washable Modern Rugs!

I am so in love with Jude & Ruby’s new Lorena Canals rug for their room. Not only is the design and quality superior but they are MACHINE-WASHABLE. Which is great because my children are really just tiny tornadoes. Below is the design I chose.

Lorena Canals prides itself on quality in every aspect of production, from the finest raw materials to socially responsible labor practices. Their handmade rugs are available in a wide variety of designs, colors, sizes, and thicknesses—making them suitable for any room. The natural cotton is cool in summer and warm in winter, and the amazing part is that all designs can be washed at home in a conventional washing machine.

Lorena Canals provides schooling for children in northern India. With the purchase of one of their rugs, a customer helps a child attend school.

Moms all over Europe, including Penelope Cruz, are already fans of Lorena Canals. “I am excited to officially be available in the USA,” says founder Lorena Canals. “Most American moms were shipping our rugs from Europe to their homes, spending more on shipping than on the rug itself!”

Prices range from $200-$279. See all of the designs and learn more at:

Obsessed // Minted Home Decor for Baby & Kids

Lookie Boo + Minted

Hi friends! If you are not familiar with Minted yet, I’m sorry in advance…because you’re going to want to buy all the things. Minted is a design marketplace. They source creative content from a global community of independent artists, then sell the best content in the form of art, home décor, and stationery, directly to consumers.

If you’re a visual learner like I am.

Awesome, right?! I recently started working on Ozzy’s “nursery nook” in our master bedroom (um, California is expensive and our house is small) and the search for the perfect wall print has begun.

Black/white/grey/pops of blue, you get the idea. After HOURS of meticulous obsession, I was able to design four that I really love. Minted allows you to completely personalize and preview as you shop, which is freaking cool if you’re as type A as I am about this kind of thing. Without further adieu (or rambling), here are my top four favorites…Help me pick??

Modern Organization & Storage for Littles

Well, as I’ve stated on my Facebook, Here come all the Basic White Girl’s diet and organization pins. It seems as though as soon as Christmas ends, I get this immediate urge to purge, organize and repeat. Being 34 weeks pregnant with #3 this year has only added to the sensation. It seems as though within the last 4 years since I planned a nursery for Ruby, there are so many more modern options and for all kinds of budgets. Here are some of my favorite picks for organization & storage for kiddos. It seems we can never have enough!
