Wall Art for the Little Ones.

Today  I was looking for prints to grace the walls of my clients home and came across a few favorites from my very own Kids Room folder. My preferences tend to lean towards the more graphic, quirky, sweet, and modern aesthetic. The ones I’m feeling this evening are shared below…

I absolutely love pink and yellow for a baby girls room and this Rothko print brightens up and sweetens an intimate space.

This wall print brings in a mix of vibrant color for a boys room. Energizing with an “ageless” quality, it might work well alongside a subtle plaid duvet and that favorite brown teddy bear.

Circles and shapes always take first place in kids rooms. How about this geometric sight for curious eyes from The colors are catching and will look right at home in that sleek contemporary nursery space.

This is a great take on the classic sock monkey-meets-photojournalistic art. Black and white can look just as good in the kids room as it does in the entryway gallery.

Don’t stop here. Look what Cookie Magazine put together for Kids room alphabet posters so the little guy or gal can learn from A to Z (I love the last one!).




Wrapped in British Rapture.

My search for beautiful wallpapers and fabrics is endless. Endless. I love shocking prints and anything out of the ordinary. So I came to a screaching halt when I found something actually kind of ordinary and big. Enter Rapture & Wright. Brilliant I exclaimed! Rapture and Wright began in 2002 when Rebecca Aird and Peter Thwaites designed and hand-printed their first collection of fabrics and wallpapers in a local barn. As their website claims, “The philosophy behind Rapture and Wright is to be 100% British”. Its true. And kinda selfishly cool. The cloth is woven in the UK. Designs are conceived and handprinted in the UK. And old school UK skills are used in the making. One look at the uplifting patterns, pretty hues, and generous selection, will lead you into rapture too.
