  • 1. Magical Animals Inspire a Whimsical Retreat


    Pastel rainbow meets tasteful accents of shimmer and glitter in this whimsical-inspired retreat. GUND’s collection of mythical hybrid creatures (is there anything more perfect than a Slothicorn?) evokes a sense of pure magic. Draw inspiration from these ombre rainbow horns, selecting one color for the walls. Using the same color, go one or two tones darker to highlight an accent wall or add graphic interest.

    Adorn windows and shelves with rainbow-inspired bunting to evoke a playful spirit. Add charm and enchantment with simple metallic wall decals or mini fairy lights. Finish the space with simple white linens, the perfect home for Rainbow Sparkles (Llamacorn), Dazzle (Slothicorn), and Rainbow Shimmer (Caticorn) to snuggle up with your little one. 

  • 2. Monochromatic Modern Vibes 

    What do a lamb, bunny, and llama have in common? A lovely, gentle nature, the perfect energy to channel for a peaceful nursery space. Though a blissful night’s sleep is not guaranteed, sheer sweetness is. Stick to a palette of soft white and rich cream shades found in GUND’s Animated Flora (her ears move and flap while she sings “Do Your Ears Hang Low" in a cute child's voice), Baby Toothpick Llama, and Lena Lamb.

  • The modern, monochromatic foundation is the perfect opportunity to play with fabrics, drawing inspiration from Lena Lamb’s sweet organza bow or Baby Toothpick Llama's downy plush. Juxtapose refined, delicate textiles with heavier materials by adding a jute rug, fur throw, or leather pouf. Opt for a whitewashed wooden crib and neutral bedding to make this the perfect dreamy oasis. Add a collection of rattan baskets in various sizes to the space — perfect to house the whole herd so they are in arm’s reach during playtime. 

  • 3. Gather the Gang for an Earthy Escape


    Outdoorsy kids will feel right at home in this wild, yet cozy, themed bedroom. Mix timeless and tranquil shades of gray against a backdrop of mountain motifs to create a majestic space. Bring the outside in with natural wood décor accents.

    Add a hint of contemporary colors like earthy taupe, rich orange, and creamy white, finding inspiration in the uniquely designed Baby Toothpick collection’s all-star duo: Sloth and Fox. A large shag rug makes playtime and fort building even comfier for your little one, while the classic Philbin teddy bear watches over the pack. This earthy getaway is simple, sleek, and a little bit wild.
