[caption id="attachment_4558" align="alignnone" width="509" caption="weeDECOR will Donate 10% of October 2011 Sales to Breast Cancer Research"]
October is breast cancer awareness month and weeDECOR is proud to announce that we are donating 10% of our October sales to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation
Breast cancer research is close to our hearts here at weeDECOR as our founder’s 36 year old sister, Rebecca Webber, was diagnosed with breast cancer just over a year ago. Rebecca published her journal of experiences in this month’s issue of REAL SIMPLE
(pg. 258, “My Year with Breast Cancer”, REAL SIMPLE, October 2011).
You can read the REAL SIMPLE article here
to hear more about Rebecca’s experience with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation and how she was able to stay positive despite receiving such a devastating diagnosis as cancer.
At weeDECOR, we chose the Breast Cancer Research Foundation
because over 90% of every dollar donated goes to research and awareness programs to help prevent and cure breast cancer. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation provides critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide.
Go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s website
to learn more about their mission and may we encourage you to “think pink” this month and support other retailers and organizations who are working to hard on the fight against breast cancer.

Big thanks to this Cincinnati, Ohio mom who sent in photos of her weeDECOR wall decals
in her baby nursery and gorgeous baby Julian James. Mom tells weeDECOR, "Attached are the pictures of the nature wall decal mural
we ordered from weeDECOR. We put the mural in our nursery and it goes perfectly on the bright painted yellow walls
. Our "theme" for the nursery is a bright, whimsical, animal theme. We have the animal quilt on the glider, and then a fun elephant/bird valence on the window. Since we aren't finding out whether baby is a girl or a boy, we wanted to keep the room gender neutral -- but not boring. The mural is the perfect addition to the room!"
We're so glad! This mom also told us how easy it was to remove her wall decals
and put them back up. She says:
"We put the mural on the same wall where the nightstand would be. We put the nightstand together AFTER
we initially put up the mural -- but the nightstand was too tall! So we had to take the mural down and raise it higher on the wall, which was something I was a bit nervous about. However, the mural easily came down -- no problems at all -- and it was a piece of cake putting the mural back up."
"We're very pleased with the quality of the mural, as well as the quick shipping and turnaround after placing the order. I'd definitely recommend weeDECOR to friends -- and already have!"
Thanks, mom! We're so glad we were able to help you with your nursery decorating and congratulations on baby Julian. Precious!

There are hundreds if not thousands of nursery decorating themes out there but it's easy to see which ones stood out in 2009. The five most popular nursery themes this past year were...
The Princess Themed Nursery
– Ariel, Snow White, Cinderella continued to top the list as the most popular of Disney princesses which was reflected in kids room décor this year. And, the recently released Princess and the Frog movie will continue to fuel princess themed girls' rooms in 2010. There were plenty of options for princess décor without the mouse (Mickey, that is) with furniture
, pedant lighting
, wall stickers
, and wall art
using castles, wands, and tiaras. This decor was primarily pink, purple, and white and helped moms bring the princess theme to life.
The Gender Neutral Nursery
– Modern nurseries continue to have a more gender neutral feel. Even knowing the gender of the baby, moms decorated in gender neutral themes more so in 2009 than ever before. This was primarily done through colors, shapes, and alphabet décor. Remember that gorgeous so
"not" neutral nursery from Petit Tresor
? The color palette of orange, blue, purple, and yellow was a fun combo showing just this. We did a story on wall mobiles using geometric shapes
to show how designers found creative solutions for gender neutral wall decor. And, we saw popular designers like MiGi designing alphabet themed bedding
and Name Your Design designing alphabet themed wall canvases
The Organic Themed Nursery
– Kermit said it was not easy being green. But, that was a long time ago. In 2009, we found more options to create an organic themed nursery than in any previous year. Whether you sought modern orange organic bedding
from Pixel Organics or more classic styles
from Coyuchi, there were great designs from which to choose. Shades of low or no VOC wall paint
were in abundance. And Spoonflower, the custom fabric printing company, introduced organic fabrics so you could even design your own organic themed nursery
The Nature Themed Nursery
– The nature themed nursery is a riff off the organic themed nursery and it came on strong in 2009. Deer themed bedding
, tree wall decals
, and owl nursery wall decor
made it easy for mom to recreate nature in the nursery.
And the winner is...
The Jungle Themed Nursery
– The jungle themed nursery was the #1 desired nursery theme in 2009 and designers and retailers complied creatively bringing you blue elephants
, pink hippo wall decals
, orange lions
, and lots of brown monkeys
jumping on the bed. Moms had all the materials they needed to build their own safari. Due to its versatility, we think the jungle themed nursery is going to continue on strong in 2010.
As we come to the end of 2009, we can't help but reflect on the year and the fun we've had finding the freshest ideas in nursery decor. We appreciate you following us along that journey and would like to share with you the five most popular nursery decorating ideas and trends
- Elephants were huge in 2009. We featured elephant wall decals
from Giggle, elephant throw pillows
from bohemian nursery designer Rikshaw Designs, and elephant themed nurseries
from designers like Carter's
. Elephants were popular as stand alone decor or as part of a jungle or safari themed room. We think their popularity will continue in 2010 as they are practically a classic now when it comes to baby or kids room decorating.
4) Tree Wall Decals
- Our tree wall decal articles were some of our most read articles of the year. This tree wall decal
by ModBaby on Rate My Space popped on this gorgeous Tiffany-colored paint. It generated many oohs and ahs as did this modern tree wall decal with bluebirds
, this tree wall decal-like design
from Pottery Barn Kids, and this cherry blossom tree wall decal
. Given the trend towards organics and long-term environmental sustainability, we think trees will continue to permeate nursery decor.
- Lavender was the new pink in girl's room decorating this year and this was reflected across the board in paint, bedding, wall decor, and nursery accessories. Cookie magazine named this lavender painted nursery
one of its top of the year. This lavender bedding set and wall decor
from Cuddle Kids Bedding Boutique was applauded for its creativity. And, we saw lavender in kid's wallpaper
, butterfly wall accents
, and wall paint
- Damask was a nice addition in 2009. Damask has made a comeback in home decor in recent years and it has spilled over into kid's room decorating, Reserved for girl's decor, damask prints for girls' rooms come from great designers in gorgeous color combinations like black and white damask
, chocolate, sage and white damask
, and pretty pink and white damask
- Perhaps the most surprising nursery decor trend in 2009 was owl themed nursery decor. Owls never struck as a particularly cute animal with which to decorate. But, textile designers, artists, and stylists have proved us wrong giving owls the friendly face we love in children's room decor. We primarily saw the trend in owl wall decor such as cute personalized owl wall art
from Name Your Design and owl wall stickers
from etsy designer Leen the Graphics Queen. There were also owl themed kids rooms
and many nature themed rooms that used owls.

As many of you now know, there was a very large recall issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission yesterday in connection with a manufacturer’s “drop-side rail” cribs. The manufacturer’s name is Stork Craft. Their cribs are sold under both Stork Craft and Fisher Price brand names. More than 2.1 million cribs were recalled, and only cribs with drop-side rails.
We wanted to share some of the information we have seen on the recall in the event you need more details.
The recall is for 2.1 million cribs manufactured by Stork Craft. The safety issue cited in this recall affects only Stork Craft’s drop-side rail cribs, and not every drop-side crib in the US and Canada. Read the press release is here:
Infant Entrapment and Suffocation Prompts Stork Craft to Recall More Than 2.1 Million Drop-Side Cribs
WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Stork Craft Manufacturing Inc., of British Columbia, Canada, today announced the voluntary recall of more than 2.1 million Stork Craft drop-side cribs, including about 147,000 Stork Craft drop-side cribs with the Fisher-Price logo. The recall involves approximately 1,213,000 units distributed in the United States and 968,000 units distributed in Canada.
CPSC urges parents and caregivers to immediately stop using the recalled cribs, wait for the free repair kit, and do not attempt to fix the cribs without the kit. They should find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby. Consumers should contact Stork Craft to receive a free repair kit that converts the drop-side on these cribs to a fixed side.
The cribs’ drop-side plastic hardware can break, deform, or parts can become missing. In addition, the drop-side can be installed upside-down, which can result in broken or disengaged plastic parts. All of these problems can cause the drop-side to detach in one or more corners. When the drop-side detaches, it creates space between the drop-side and the crib mattress. The bodies of infants and toddlers can become entrapped in the space which can lead to suffocation. Complete detachment of drop-sides can lead to falls from the crib.
CPSC, Health Canada, and Stork Craft are aware of 110 incidents of drop-side detachment; 67 incidents occurred in the United States and 43 in Canada. The incidents include 15 entrapments; 12 in the U.S. and three in Canada. Four of the entrapments resulted in suffocation: a 7-month-old in Gouverneur, N.Y.; a 7-month-old in New Iberia, La.; a 6-month-old in Summersville, W.Va.; and a 9-month-old in Bronx, N.Y. Included in these incidents are 20 falls from cribs; 12 in the U.S. and eight in Canada. Fall injuries ranged from concussion to bumps and bruises. The cribs involved in these incidents had plastic drop-side hardware that had broken, missing, or deformed claws, connectors, tracks, or flexible tab stops; loose or missing metal spring clips; stripped screws; and/or drop-sides installed upside-down.
This recall involves Stork Craft drop-side cribs and Stork Craft drop-side cribs with the Fisher-Price logo. This recall does not involve any cribs that do not have a drop-side. This recall does not involve any cribs with metal rod drop-side hardware. It involves only those cribs with plastic trigger and one-hand-system drop-side hardware.
This recall includes Stork Craft cribs with manufacturing and distribution dates between January 1993 and October 2009. This recall also includes Stork Craft cribs with the Fisher-Price logo that have manufacturing dates between October 1997 and December 2004. The Stork Craft cribs with the Fisher-Price logo were first sold in the U.S. in July 1998 and in Canada in September 1998. The cribs were sold in various styles and finishes. The manufacture date, model number, crib name, country of origin, and the firm’s name, address, and contact information are located on the assembly instruction sheet attached to the mattress support board. The firm’s insignia “storkcraft baby” or “storkling” is inscribed on the drop-side teething rail of some cribs. In Stork Craft cribs that contain the “Fisher-Price” logo, this logo can be found on the crib’s teething rail, in the manufacturer’s instructions, on the assembly instruction sheet attached to the mattress support board, and on the end panels of the Twinkle-Twinkle and Crystal crib models.
Major retailers in the United States and Canada sold the recalled cribs including BJ’s Wholesale Club, J.C. Penney, Kmart, Meijer, Sears, USA Baby, and Wal-Mart stores and online at Amazon.com, Babiesrus.com, Costco.com, Target.com, and Walmart.com from January 1993 through October 2009 for between $100 and $400.
The cribs were manufactured in Canada, China and Indonesia.
For additional information, contact Stork Craft toll-free at (877) 274-0277 anytime to order the free repair kit, or log on to www.storkcraft.com
Important Message from CPSC:
CPSC would like to remind parents not to use any crib with missing, broken, or loose parts. Make sure to tighten hardware from time to time to keep the crib sturdy. When using a drop-side crib, parents should check to make sure the drop-side or any other moving part operates smoothly. Always check all sides and corners of the crib for disengagement. Any disengagement can create a gap and entrap a child. In addition, do not try to repair any side of the crib, especially with tape, wire or rope.
Health Canada’s press release can be seen here
Additionally, the JPMA made a statement regarding drop-side cribs:
"To alleviate confusion that is in the media regarding the recently announced recall of certain
