French print busts

Animal busts, Restoration Hardware Baby + Child

This week I’m coveting these lovely papier mâché animal busts available at Restoration Hardware Baby + Child. It seems I’m surrounded by happy news of spring babies coming this 2013 and I have baby’s room on the mind. I love how these modern papier mâché busts work as well in a cozy living room, front hall or baby’s room.

I spotted these last week when they were featured on flawlessly fabulous Gwyneth Paltrow’s pet project, Goop, and she informed me that they’re entirely eco-friendly. The animals are made by hand by Haitian artisans using recycled paper, recycled steel wire and arrowroot starch glue.

The best part: the outer layer is from French newspapers.

C’est merveilleux!


And look how lovely in a baby’s room!

    I love all white nurseries !! Not sure how practical they are, but they always look so peaceful and pure in photos. Those animal busts are too cute.

      Hi Mandy! Thanks for your comment. I, too, am a fan of white nurseries! I do actually think they’re practical – stick everything in a load of whites and everything will just magically come clean, right?
