Our friends ordered this bean bag from Restoration Hardware, and love it. We’re in the market for one, and now that I’ve started looking at faux fur bean bags, it seems like it’s a real thing this season…West Elm, Pottery Barn….they all have them. This one from RH doesn’t have a slipcover you can take […]


I’m always sad when the book cover of a favorite children’s book gets torn or crumpled, as it inevitably does with a well-loved book. So I’ve started saving our favorite covers — removing them completely before they have a chance to be damaged — and hanging them on the wall. Originally I did this by […]


We recently stayed at the super cute Hotel Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and they had a collection of these very cool, sturdy bean bags, from Sitting Bull. They come in great muted colors, which make them seem like they can live outside of a kid’s bedroom, and the more structured shape […]


Our friend has a fantastic ski house with a giant kid bunk room. Whenever we stay there, we sleep in there ourselves with our kids. I can’t think of any greater return to childhood. Standalone bunks can feel flimsy. Because these are built-in they feel really solid. Our kids talk about this room all year […]

One of our contributors, Jen Smith, sent us this idea and link from Apartment Therapy, and we love it. “I love the idea of one of these moons being used as a night light in a little child’s room, a literal take on Good Night Moon.”


Reader Michelle Matsui sent us in this clever kid closet organizing suggestion, which is a great idea, especially for families with small spaces. We love the way she uses two sweater organizers to store her son’s clothing, and it only uses the front of closet. That way there’s still room in the back for the […]


This great find came to me via my super lovely upstairs housemate: she bought some of these posters—hand-cut from a piece of construction paper with only an X-acto knife, and printed with vegetable-based inks on 100% Post-Consumer, Recycled Paper by a family-owned print shop in Portland, Oregon. The artist is Nikki McClure. Bargain alert: you can choose […]


How cool is this hopscotch rug?! Perfect for a rainy day inside play, or any day…and the color of it is a nice grey, and would work really well with whatever room color your kids have. It’s even nice enough to have in an entryway. I saw it at someone’s house, and it was the […]
