Peel-and-stick wallpaper = easiest weekend project ever. Parenting win.

My daughter’s ideas for how she wants to decorate her room change daily, sometimes by the hour, so I’m having a hard time keeping up. Does she want turquoise walls, a hand-painted mural, or are we going with that all-white walls and bright furniture look? Well, I’ve decided I’m going to vote to cover at least one wall in her bedroom with some of the fun, tween-friendly, peel-and-stick wallpaper designs from Chasing Paper. That’s right. Just peel. And stick. No trays of glue, no endless hours scraping it off the walls once your child decides they’re over it. Related: More of the world’s...

Target Pillowfort launches today, with adorable and affordable kids’ decor that parents will love too.

The exciting new Target Pillowfort collection of kids’ decor launches today at last, and has come along at just the right time. There’s something about being cooped up inside all winter that makes me want to redecorate. Every room. I’m getting bored with the same old stuff especially in my kids’ rooms, which are a mix of remnants of their nursery decor and a couple of cooler, tween-friendly pieces I’ve picked up here and there. Sadly, a full-house re-do isn’t in the budget. But some of the fresh designs in the Target Pillowfort collection might be. From pillows to artwork, full bedding sets, accent furniture, and those cute...
