I am one lucky girl. Last week I got to attend the Land of Nod VIP Grand Opening party in Costa Mesa. What I fun evening. There was food and shopping and HGTV celebs and my best friend was by my side – seriously, what could be better? You may have seen some of the fun on my Instagram and there’s even more on Nod’s Instagram.
So, can I start by saying, I love the Nod staff. Seriously, they are the sweetest, most down to earth, fun loving, and creative group of folks. Can I somehow work for The Land of Nod? DREAM JOB friends! Everything about this company fits so well with my taste and aspirations. I’m just putting that out there.
The brand new store is amazing! I wish I could have brought one of everything home with me. I know, from personal experience, that their products are absolutely adorable and of great quality, because I used a lot of Nod touches in my girl’s shared bedroom. But, it was so much fun to touch and see everything up close and personal. Yes, I do love flipping through the pages of their catalogue and their online store is fabulous. But, being able walk through rooms of their totally stylish, yet quirky and eclectic products is the BEST!
Every surface had been thoughtfully arranged and styled. The Land of Nod does such a great job of pairing vintage finds with modern and practical pieces.
And my favorite furniture piece of the evening, this fabulous retro style rocker. Oh my, when can I own you my precious. I’ll rock you and love you, well you’ll rock me, but either way, it will be divine.
I did buy a couple really fun items. I brought home the little squirrel nightlight, it’s going to find it’s home in Riley, my vintage trailer. And I also bought this gorgeous gold lamp, it’s coming in a couple weeks. And when it arrives, I will share a whole post about how much a love this lamp, just you wait and see. It’s going to be a part of my new living room, I’m going to be using Nod pieces in a grown up space.
So, all my SoCal friends the store is now open at the South Coast Plaza (3333 Bristol St., Costa Mesa, CA 92626). And if you can’t make it to the store, be sure to check out their online store or if you just need a good dose of inspiration, I love following Nod on pinterest.
