framedcovers

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 […]


bunkroom

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 […]

In her son Henry’s bedroom, Dallas interior designer Janet Gridley chose to cover up the dreary walls with four giant bright blue and green map murals that she purchased at McMaps.com. Getting around all the windows and doors would have been tricky so she hired a professional, but you can also buy something called “smart […]

For those of us who have yet to invest in something more than a metal bed frame for our kids, Blik Wall Graphics has the perfect solution:  graphic interpretations of headboards that you apply to the wall like a giant sticker.  In addition to headboards, they have adhesive robots, kitty cats, enchanted forests and castles, […]


moon

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 […]


hopscotch

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 […]

Our friend Cory sent us the link to 20×200, a site that specializes in affordable prints, and is supremely curated by Jen Bekman. We’ve written about it before, but you know how it goes…we forget to regularly check in on it. These prints from Eadweard Muybridge are fantastic. The 8×10 prints which were only $24 […]


fatboy

I’ve started thinking that our almost 9 year old might love a bean bag for her birthday, and since she’s still at that age where her favorite color changes like the wind, I think denim might be the best bet. Here are what seemed to be the best options out there, but if I missed […]
