Whales, Whales...Everywhere!

Is anyone else seeing whale-inspired decor and children's items everywhere? I know this is a common motif on the East Coast but it seems to be creeping west and I like it!

An instant and functional piece of whale decor from the Land of Nod.
Just peel, stick and chalk!



The adorable piece of modern whale artwork is from ubabub, across the seas. I would love to see this print blown up 3 times this size as the focal point in the room.




I wrote about the alphabet designs of the Etsy shop Strawberry Luna last year, here, and a year later I still think this print is adorable.




A monogram melamine dish, the perfect mini hostess gift for your host's child. This one available at Layla Grace.



A sweet, sleepy whale by Oopsy Daisy. That yellow is so fun an vibrant!



Pottery Barn just came out with this whimsical wicker whale storage container.
(it also comes in white)


These whale surfer girl plaques are pretty cute and are surprisingly from Pottery Barn Kids. The soft worn and faded colors got me.



You can even find some swaddle blankets with whales. Baby Jar has always been one of my favorite accessory and gift vendors.


Iff you really want to make a modern whale statement in your room, this storage case from Muu available at Rosenberry Rooms is pretty outstanding for a storage case. An updated version of your standard toy chest.





Last but not least, it would not be fair to write a piece on whales without including a piece of clothing from Vineyard Vines, the preppiest beach whale outfitter out there! They have options for mom, dad, sis, and bro.

  1. Have you seen geoff mcfetridge's wallpaper in little whales? Think it would be great in a child's bathroom! Would love to use it in Colin's someday.
