Your baby’s toasty in that stroller. Shouldn’t you be toasty, too?

I am definitely not one for gimmicky baby and new mom products that you really don’t need. That’s probably why you don’t see a lot of stroller accessories on here, or stuff like the dreaded wipes warmer. (Sorry to those of you who love them.) But in this case, I kind of fell hard for a dandy stroller accessory that I wish I had had when my kiddos were babies. The WarmMuffs from one of our favorite little baby brands, 7 A.M. Enfant, are pretty genius if you live anywhere the temperature likes to drop below 32F. These ultra luxe, fuzzy,...

Winter white: decorate the French way with these fab wall decals

We’re dreaming of white…walls, that is. A white wall in a child’s room just begs to be noticed. You can go crazy expensive and find a muralist (we can dream!), or make a statement in a much less pricey way, like with these cool, quirky, totally new designs from a mom-run business in France. I am smitten with this group of wall decals featuring little illustrated birds from the new shop, Bumoon. I even clicked on the French version (there are English, Spanish, French and Italian vinyl applications) and am quite tempted to go that route. In France, birds...

A first Christmas gift for baby that you’ll want to snuggle as much as she does

One of my favorite categories on our Holiday Gift Guide this year is first Christmas gifts for babies that are all handmade. Recently we shared an entire selection of great first holiday gifts for baby (lots of handmade goodness there too!) but I also happen to adore this blanket that’s featured on our guide this year. Especially once I realized who made it. Turns out the stunning craftsmanship and design comes from none other than Seven Smooches, makers of gorgeous handmade accessories and clothing all from upcycled fabrics. I discovered them about three years ago when they launched and I love to...

Wallpaper that’s easy on the eyes and easier to install

When decorating a new baby’s room, most people don’t think, wallpaper. Even if you do decide to entertain the thought, how many of us these days have the slightest clue how to hang it? I’m not saying that this wallpaper hangs itself, but I am saying that it’s beautiful, it will change the look of any room and that it is easier to install than most. Plus, it comes from one of our very favorite companies to turn to for all things cool for babies. Wee Gallery, makers of the most beautiful baby soft books, inspired activity books for...

Wishlist wonderful: a kid’s desk designed to dazzle

My kids have always been obsessed with arts and crafts. (I don’t really know of a kid who isn’t.) And as a parent, I’ve always tried to create fun spaces for my kids to use their imaginations to the fullest. Now this desk is at the tippy-top of my design list. The Deskhouse by Cool Kids Company is a smart but trendy piece that functions as an art desk and a playhouse. How fun is that?  Designed by Alberto Marcos, it’s a pricey but really clever drafting desk for art activities and a most inviting hideaway. Look carefully and you’ll...

Feed the world with beautiful limited-edition art

My kids are getting to an age when they’re understanding that there are big differences between the way we live and how families around the world live.It’s pretty tough these days, though, for a kid to feel like they can make any kind of impact in a faraway country. Because, frankly, when you only have a couple of dollars a week at your disposal, it’s going to take a long time for it to add up to much. The beautiful Global Compassion poster from Children Inspire Design might be just the answer our family is looking for. Purchasing a signed, limited-edition poster for...

Funky kids’ furniture that’s not your average kids’ furniture

When I started searching for furniture to fill my kids’ bedrooms, I was on the lookout for pieces that were kid-friendly yet well designed.  I wanted something that didn’t feel predictable.  And above all, I wanted something that didn’t look like it was rescued from a daycare. (You know what I’m talking about.)  We have featured a lot of great furniture pieces here on CMP and now one more can be added to that list.  Tot Republic offers unique designs along with a truly sustainable and Earth-friendly approach to construction and materials. You can tell that through their designs,...
