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...

Where to find the cutest French baby gifts and room decor without the $2000 plane ticket.

I always love finding and sharing European brands for kids that we don’t see so regularly around our parts, but mostly, they’re actually in Europe. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but you know, shipping. Well it turns out a French expat maman in LA was missing the beautiful things from her homeland too, and brought them here in one lovely little kids’ boutique called Tiny Frenchy. Warning: clicking over may tax your credit cards. The baby accessories, gear, and kids’ room decor only come from independent French designers, many of whom are moms themselves. In other words, think Cool French Mom...

The chalkboard calendar that stays as flexible as you are. Or probably should be, if you have kids.

I’ve been feeling like my house has gotten a little out of control here at the end of the summer, so I’m taking advantage of our new back-to-school routine this week to get started. (And yes, I’m one of those moms with the crazy early school start dates this year.) First step: a family calendar that includes chores, meals, and appointments all in one place. I need it to be flexible, because I know my kids and they get bored with the same responsibilities every day. And, of course, our commitments will change week to week. So I’m absolutely taken with the idea...

The classic world map gets an arty twist

If you have a thing for maps and globes and geography in general, then you might love this as much as I do: a paintsplatter world map spotted at The Fancy. It would be so beautiful over a desk or in a kitchen, but I imagine my kids would love it in their room as well. It’s actually a repositionable sticker in three different sizes, starting at just $19 for a 15″ x 10″.  Not only are the colors vibrant and inviting, but there’s something about seeing the land masses of this planet depicted without borders that represents the interconnectivity of our world beautifully....

6 easy kids dresser label tricks. A.K.A. how to keep your kids from wearing swimsuits in a snowstorm. Maybe.

I have come across a few little design hack ideas to help keep my kids’ overflowing drawers a little less so–and hopefully, in the process, keep the seven year-old from grabbing the tye-died tank top and gym shorts when it’s 10-degrees and snowing outside. 1. For kids of reading age, you can order custom drawer labels like these nice ones from 3rd Ave Shore on Etsy, shown above. You can of course name them by clothing category, or give them labels like cold weather, warm weather, socks and undies. Depending on how many clothes you have, of course. Around here, we need...

Personalized growth charts for kids from Tinyme: Oh the cuteness.

So choose wisely. We have shared many awesome-looking growth charts over the years that we love and now we’ve found one more resource: The personalized growth chart decals from Tinyme, the stylish gift company that just keeps on impressing us. The decals come in six adorable styles that are fun and playful but won’t look totally out of place in an older-kids’...

Everyone’s favorite dejected pigeon is ready to up the bedtime ante with these hilarious wall decals that smartly include a few blank dry-erase speech bubbles so that kids (and parents, don’t forget the parents) can create wall-sized Pigeon stories of their own....

Gorgeous custom photo decals for your walls that happen to be eco-friendly too

I love having a really nice camera built into my phone. I get to capture so many memories of my kids’ childhood that my mom didn’t because we only had twelve exposures on that roll of Polaroid film, so they had better be good ones! The only problem is that I now have thousands of photos on my computer, and not enough room on my walls to hang them all. What’s a mom to do? Paper Culture is saving the day (or at least the decor) with their new eco-friendly wall clings. This company has been a favorite of...

4 nursery themes for the coolest kids’ rooms

Picking a nursery theme doesn’t have to be hard–but it doesn’t have to be boring, either. We always say, skip the easily outgrown cartoon characters and go for something you won’t have to change so fast. We know it’s hard to imagine when you’re pregnant and every day seems like a year…but one day that baby will be a toddler, will be an actual kid with a say in their room decor. On behalf of our wonderful sponsor Pop & Lolli, makers of the imaginative, extremely well-made and eco-friendly fabric wall decals that we were excited to discover last...

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...
