Giveaway: Children Inspire Design

Next week marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. What better way to kick of our week long celebration than by introducing mother, artist and philanthropist Rebecca Peragine of Children Inspire Design. Whether it’s her use of recyclable mediums,  the contemporary ethnic flair of her artistry or the fact that her latest line comes in eight different languages, Rebecca shares a message you will want to teach your children.

This season’s collection launches with a line of stylish, culturally diverse  and eco-friendly  wall art, wall cards and posters full of whimsy and designed to help children learn about our beautiful world.  With a message of compassion, Children Inspire Design believes that if we teach the importance of global responsibility at a young age, carrying that responsibility into the future will be second nature for our children.

I particularly appreciate how Rebecca acknowledges various languages in her art. My children’s ethnic makeup consists of Chinese, Irish, Norwegian, Russian, Polish,  Austrian and a sprinkle of French. Throw in both Jewish and Catholic faiths and they are simply kids growing up in the 21st century. As a parent it is important that I pass along my appreciation for the various culturals around the globe and those that make up our family’s heritage. Learning to count to 10 in Chinese is a fun way to start! Children Inspire Design wall cards are the perfect combination of art and education. They make for a wonderful border around a child’s room or grouping  just above the bed for a burst of design (and safety).

Available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, French, German, Hebrew and Swedish, your child will be worldly and chic-que maravilloso! Use coupon code “CID20” to recieve 20% off your next order. And don’t forget to take a brief moment to sign up for the Children Inspire Design newsletter to receive a free PDF art print out from Rebecca!

    I love the You Are My Sunshine print. I have sung this song to my 7 month old since he was born. He loves it. I sing it softly to him when he is going to sleep or when something has upset it. It calms him and makes him smile every time. So, this has great meaning for me and my baby boy. Winning this would be a great MD gift.

    My favorite design is the Pretty Birds Shop Talk art! While my heritage is German, I don’t speak a word of it. It’s gotta be English for me.

    I love the Deer print from the In The Forest Collection-so sweet for a child’s room. My heritage is Irish/Scots so I would an English Alphabet.

    I love the “In the Forest” art prints. Our family heritage is represented mainly with English speaking ancestors. But my husband has an affinity for Hispanic culture and the Spanish language. I know he would think that the Alphabet poster in Spanish would be an awesome addition to our nursery. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    Love the World Map posters! My family speaks Korean, hoping to try and incorporate language and traditions with our 7 month old son.

    I love those counting wall cards! But I’d mostly love to hang that alphabet poster on my daughter’s wall.

  24. 24

    My favorite design is the You Are My Sunshine print. My ancestors are all from parts of England, Whales, & Ireland, so I would choose an English poster. I did spend a lot of time learning Spanish though, so a Spanish poster would be cool too. They are lovely!

    These posters are all adorable! I’m always on the look out for children’s art in French, and the alphabet print would make an amazing stepping off point to design a nursery or playroom. Love it!

    I’m really liking most of her designs. The nursery rhymes are too precious. Though, I’d get “Flowers” for my daughters room. :)

    My husband and I are narrowing down design ideas for our nursery, and we love the Sleep Baby Sleep nursery rhyme art.

    My fave is the Global Child vintage farm animals , and I’d go for the German, since my baby is half German!

  41. 41

    I love the Chinese Numbers wall cards – perfect way for our baby to get a headstart on her mom’s native language!

  42. 42

    English represents our heritage, but I love the Spanish alphabet design.

    I love all her designs, but You Are my Sunshine is great and I love the numbers also. Our family’s heritage is quite mixed…German, Norwegian being the most, but also Swedish, Irish and Finnish. We’re currently expecting our first baby and looking for adorable prints for the nursery. We’re planning to teach our child Norwegian, as my husband’s family still speaks it.

    The “You are my Sunshine” and “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” Wall Art Canvases are my favorite!

    All the designs are whimsical and fun to look at. My favorite is the world map design, because I have never seen anything like it… so simple yet so adorable and would make a wonderful keepsake!

    Our family’s heritage is Thai, Chinese, Cherokee Indian, and English.

    I like the You Are My Sunshine poster. And our heritage is English, Hungarian, and Irish – so the English poster would be for us!

  85. 85

    Rebecca’s bird posters are so sweet. I’m hard-pressed to choose a favorite! I think, if I have to choose, it would be “Shop Talk”. The colors are lovely & the design, so simple. While I’m attempting to learn some French, along with my boys, I would have to go with the English Alphabet poster for our family!

  86. 86

    I like the compassion posters. My heritage is mostly scottish/dutch, but my husband’s family is polish/german! Love the posters :)

  87. 87

    I love the world map poster! We could go with either the English or the Italian alphabet posters to reflect our heritage.
