The Ultimate Children's Design Resource


Handmade Art

Finding the right wall art might not be as hard as you think. I have found that there is nothing better than one-of-a-kind pieces to make a room. Gathering a collection of handmade art can be the perfect way to tell your story, and there might be a great pool of artistic talent right in your own home.

Turn your kids’ art projects into decor, and let their creativity tell a story. Create an art gallery that is made up of the work of your favorite little artists.

Get creative with a unique take on a mobile. There is so much inspiration out there, so branch out and take flight with your own interpretation of a cool idea. I love art with dimension; it adds volume to the walls.

I love this simple butterfly garland—colorful wings of flight dance on a traditional backdrop, adding softness to the room.
