A place where design, fun finds and family collide


I have seen many rooms lately on sites such as Project Nursery and Apartment Therapy where the ‘mobile’ isn’t placed over the crib.  Have you seen this? It was funny for me to read some of the comments people have left after a few of the rooms you’ll see below, asking why the mobile wasn’t over the crib. It seems that the idea of the mobile has changed from strictly a visual stimulation for the baby to a statement piece.  I have never been the mobile kind of mom.  My main reason was when my son was born almost 5 years ago, cute mobiles were unheard of.  I wasn’t into the animals, trains, or bug type options.  Etsy wasn’t a phenomenon yet.  But we all know now that mobiles can be gorgeous or really striking.  And with that being said, that is why you see so many not actually hanging over the crib anymore.  I’m sure there are many other reasons involved too…they pose a hazard once your little one can sit up or stand.  So if you place it somewhere other then over the crib, it can stay in the room forever.  Here are a few great rooms where the mobile is still visible from the crib, but is no longer attached to the crib itself.

Have fun with your mobile. Make it a statement piece, bold, colorful or soft and whimsical, either way have fun with it.  They really are fun to look at. (not just for your baby)
