We recently took the plunge into parenthood, and with this came a whole new opportunity to collect special modern and mid-century inspired finds. Finds for his room, bookshelves, toy box, and walls. Narrowing down choices for a room that you are so excited to create, and yet want to keep simple is difficult. So we’ll start with one of the best parts of a baby room, or any room for that matter…books.
Aside from the vintage classics such as “Snowy Day” and “Where the Wild Things Are“, there is a wide selection of both vintage and modern books that every lover of mid-century should have grace their shelves. We’re not going to lie and say that we didn’t include several of these books at first merely because we judged them by their covers (and illustrations). :) But beautiful illustrations aside, reading these books to Coltrane both brings us back to our own childhood, and keeps us entertained. And we hope they will for you too.
