Clever Child’s Room Décor

What makes this room special – look up!

This adorable and super-cheerfully decorated little girl’s room has great color, many things a child would love, and a fanciful attitude many Moms would go for. I certainly would.

The shell of the room is white; ceiling, walls, window trim and even the painted floor. High octane color is added through the use of bed, floor and wall textiles, a variety of mobiles, and a knockout Asian-style umbrella.

Felted Wool Carpet

Everyone needs a little fun in their decor

The Pinocchio carpet is named for a type of Danish candy –  colorful sugarcoated licorice balls.

Available in five different color combinations, the carpet is handmade from felted wool balls that are strung together.

I can’t say how durable it is or how well it cleans up.  I only know the Pinocchio rug made me chuckle.  It’s vibrant and happy looking.  It just looks like fun!

Everything else remains unchanged.   A solid three-color palette of cotton-candy pink, apple green, and bright white afford the luxury of using a vibrant multi-colored floor covering like the one here from Stark.

The quilted polka-dot upholstered headboard and bed skirt are the only pattern in the room except for a subtle repeat of polka-dots on the framed mirror above the dresser and a toss pillow. We see a glimpse of a crystal chandy — so popular in girly-girl rooms and, of course, Ms.… Continue Reading

Entertaining and education rugs for children

Bold primary colors give these educational and fun carpets a dose of high energy. I’ve always chosen mind-challenging toys over ones that will be tossed aside once the novelty subsides, so these rugs easily earn my passionate stamp of approval. Made of 100% nylon, they are easy to keep clean.
