Nurseries and kids’ rooms are so much fun to decorate that I almost wish we’d have another baby just so I’d have a nursery to decorate. Yes. It really is that serious
You can get away with whimsical design elements and themes in kids’ room that might not be appropriate in adult spaces (though I’m just adventurous enough to try them anyway). This organic, polka dotted bedding from the Land of Nod is playful enough for a little girl or boy, but it also could work for a teenager or even in a guest room. The patterns are fun, but because they are tone-on-tone in deep shades pink and blue, they’re more sophisticated than something of the the baby blue or powder pink variety. :: READ THE FULL POST
My daughter has quite the active imagination, tons of stuffed animals and lots of floor space in her room. Plus, she’s the only child at home most of the time, so tends to play alone quite a bit. Now that she’s learning to read, she’s been spending a lot of time with her books, sounding out words and learning reading comprehension. I’ve been thinking of ways to enhance her creative play time, and when I found these inexpensive recycled cardboard playhouses from Way Basics, I knew I had found something special.

A little while back when we finished my daughter’s room, you might remember that there was a blank spot on one side of the room that was waiting for something special: custom-built Owyn toy box donated by Mod Mom Furniture. Well, Owyn is here, and I can unequivocally say that he was well worth the wait.
Previously, all of Ja’Naya’s larger toys were housed inside a large, blue plastic bin that we acquired sometime over the past few years in one of our moves. It was functional, but it was hideous — which is why I kept it hidden away as much as possible. Owyn, on the other hand, will live proudly next to the wall we like to call the “art gallery.” Here he is in the context of the whole room: :: READ THE FULL POST
I’ve been having a blast decking out Ja’Naya’s new room with the help of some wonderful in-kind sponsors. It’s killing me that I can’t reveal the whole room just yet, but I’m waiting for a couple of key components that will really complete the look, so you’ll have to wait just a little bit longer.
In the meantime, though, I decided to give you a sneak peek of the room. The image shown above is just a sneak peek of the sneak peek Want to see the full image?

My daughter is four years old, so she’s at the age when she’s learning how to read and tell time. Thanks to the poster hanging in her room from MadeByGirl, “love” was the first word she learned how to spell. Because of this, I realized that I have the opportunity to use her room decor not only to surround her with beautiful things, but with items she can learn from. Sure, the clock and alphabet poster from the dollar store are functional, but they aren’t exactly a work of art, and they certainly are not made of sustainable materials. :: READ THE FULL POST
