5 Low Cost Storage Ideas for The Kids’ Room


A new year is starting and we need to order everything so we think that these storage ideas for the children’s room will be really useful. We also know that we need to save, so we can use some of these charming low-cost ideas. Can’t you believe it?

Recycled Wooden Boxes for Storage


Take a look to the storage space we show before on Petit and Small: wooden recycled boxes, pastel tone paint and green tones to be combined with the decoration.

If you have wooden boxes at home can you don’t know what to do with them, hang them on the wall, stack them or add some wheels to create mobile storage pieces. They are a cheap option that offers a lot of possibilities. You can add some paint or wallpaper to provide a new look. READ MORE

Colourful Clouds and Rainbow Showers

It’s true: clouds don’t have to be grey and gloomy! In fact, we’ve spotted so many colourful cloud rooms and raindrops on our recent internet travels that we thought we would share a few of our favourites. As all of these rooms show, clouds can add a splash of colour to your child’s space, sparking even the youngest of imaginations and creating the perfect dreamy feel.

Here are our top ten:

1.Giant cloud and raindrop wall feature (pictured above).

We love the use of colour in this nursery styled by Paulina Arcklin; from the fresh white backdrop bathed in natural light, to the giant colourful rain cloud that creates a striking feature and keeps the room both fun and young.

2. Rain Cloud Mobile by The Butter Flying on Etsy.

In a similar way, the bright droplets on this rain cloud mobile provide a pop of colour against the simple white setting in this room:

3. Sun, Cloud and Rainbow Garland by Noodle Doll Nelly on Etsy.

Just like the felt mobile above, the bright colours in this fun handmade felt garland contrast beautifully with the white clouds:

The brand’s overarching theme is that of discovery and playfulness, those wonderful characteristics children possess in abundance. In order to materialise it, the designers have picked motifs from the Wild West, adding their own twist to the childhood game we all know so well — Cowboys and Indians. To the wild appeals to a sense of curiosity for places and cultures different to our own.


The teepee is the centerpiece of their new collection Lakota, which means “alliance of friends” in Native American language.

Minimuhuu Covers Your Little Ones’ Dreams


Bedding is a very important element in every kids’ bedroom, especially in the first years of their lives when they spend a lot of time in contact with sheets and blankets. This is why quality is so important. Their soft skins must be covered with the best materials and the most comfortable fabrics to guarantee their security and welfare.The French brand Minimuhuu offers a cute choice of 100% organic linen bedding collections to take care of your little sleeping beauty!


As we have mentioned above, quality is a key concept, but we must also consider design if we want to keep the atmosphere we have carefully designed for them. Every detail is important and bedding can also be an opportunity to add a special touch or just to complete a fantastic look.



These simple and cosy designs from Minimuhuu will be the perfect complement for both Scandinavian and romantic rooms in soft tones where simplicity and calm are the main concepts. They will also work great in bohemian kids rooms — relaxed and filled with a mix of colours and patterns.

Sweet and soft muted tones and graphic motifs such as stars and arrows (inspired by the American Indians’ culture) will make you fall in love with every single piece. These features make them suitable for nurseries, toddlers and kids’ bedrooms and their quality can guarantee a long lasting product so you won’t have to replace them in a couple of years! Quality and design are always a good investment, don’t you think?

A Calm and Modern Botanical-Themed Nursery


We’ve seen this scene in a million films: new parents getting excited about having their baby room done, and it never seems to get old! There is a reason why this opportunity turns almost everyone into a creative eager decorator, this new person coming to his or her own space that you get to create to welcome them into the world is pretty special. Not to mention the amount of time you will spend in there together! You might as well make it nice.

We still get very excited every time we discover a new gorgeous children’s space created by a talented interior designer (what a fabulous job, right?). This time we want to share Deonne Rowland’s unique take on a botanical theme for the baby’s room — a soothing space curated to facilitate connection and rest.


Rowland’s inspiration for this theme started with two very simple objects: a dandelion cross-stitch hoop and a dandelion paperweight, both of which you can see hanging on the wall in the following image. From this simple flower motif, she came up with the concept of a natural environment which creates a sense of harmony. This

This relaxed atmosphere is carefully curated by blending a minimalist approach to furniture (clean elongated lines, simple silhouettes) and sticking to base colours. The Caravan cot by Kalon Studios is paired with some beautiful quilts from Camomile London, creating a cosy space to sleep.


The mobile is Japanese and a simple, filigree construction of connected circles of different sizes — it is always moving gently and creates changing circle-shaped shadows on the green wall behind it.


Rowlands chose olive green for its connection with nature and a pale nude soothing shade of pink to compliment it. Additionally, there are touches of brass and gold for a bit of a vintage taste. Her belief is that you can transmit warmth and love in a baby room without having to default to the cliche blue and pink theme — and she certainly proves her argument thanks to this gorgeous example!

The natural world the baby will start learning about and which will play a huge role in the development of his or her imagination is ever-present in this space. Yet, it remains subtle thanks to the simplicity and elegance of the chosen objects.

baby-nursery-botanical-theme (2) baby-nursery-botanical-theme (1)

From the uncomplicated dandelions which started everything, to delicate decorative swans, a couple of live plants combined with a tree-filled wallpaper and even a gorgeous bronze vintage leaf wreath, you could get lost in the beauty of every detail in this baby room.


Finally, it is important to note that following the contemporary trend of keeping children’s spaces functional, this baby room is practically split in three ‘zones’: the sleeping area, the changing area, and the feeding area. This last one has a final delightfully helpful touch — a dimmable night light in stylish brass for when the baby starts to fall asleep.

Are you feeling as soothed as we are by this space? If you want to see more wonderful ideas and baby room inspiration, have a look at Rowland’s site Odd sock, odd shoe and let us know what you think. You can also find her on Instagram under the same name. Happy browsing!

We want to help you out so here are 20 ideas for cool and fun wall hooks and hangers for children’s bedrooms.

We are sure you will fall in love with their minimalist designs and the quality of their products, not to mention the immense amount of care that goes into each piece.


We Are Cotton‘s concept stems from trying to find that natural simplicity with which babies are born in their designs, materials and sources. Because of this, the entire collection is made from organic cotton — an eco-friendly natural fabric, GOTS certified to boot! You will notice that the fabric is extremely soft and beneficial for the baby’s skin: you won’t have to worry about itches and rashes, it will help maintain body temperature and it’s also breathable. Clearly a fantastic match for your baby’s pure delicate skin so you don’t have to worry about the fabric’s effects on your little one.

But We Are Cotton goes one step beyond and also guarantees that the entire process is local (they are based in Barcelona), demonstrating that they truly care about their impact on the environment and the people working for them, which in return shows in the high quality of the final product.

These breathtaking structures (created with 60 loose elements) can be turned into a swing chair, a chaise longue, a kids’ slide, home accessories…imagination has no limits!

SPYNTEX is a versatile self-assembly household product made from a number of unified interlocking bars. It offers complete design freedom and can be transformed into an amazing range of stylish and practical items such as furniture, home accessories and toys! Infinity possibilities in one object.

Raimonda has a great experience in kids’ design and she considers that it could be a great way to develop children’s creativity and promote children-adults interaction while they spend funny time together.

Children will love this great opportunity to create, build, imagine and transform a simple structure into whatever they want. It’s like a functional and cool building game to decorate every single space with a playful touch!

6 Ideas for Painting Children’s Rooms


If you are familiar with the decorating world, you’ll know that one of the ways to change a room without having to splurge is to paint the walls and renew the room’s colour. We have a few ideas to share regarding this topic that will inspire you to paint children’s rooms in a creative way and choosing the right shades.

There is something for everyone: for mums who want a fun touch, those who look for something versatile and timeless and those who love bringing out their creative side.

 Chalkboard paint for children’s rooms


Even though white will give us tons of options, if we want the kids to have a fun space for themselves chalk paint is a great option — black paint on which they can draw and paint with chalk. It can’t get any cooler than this! It’s the perfect paint for a game room, or to paint one corner of the bedroom. Keep in mind that it’s black and will take some light away, but it will instead add creativity and fun!




 Painting children’s rooms with murals


Who doesn’t like children’s murals? They are perfect to bring an artistic touch to your kid’s room. The ones we are showing here are really colourful, but can you choose one in black in white if you prefer something more neutral.

A Romantic Girl’s Room with Vintage Accents


Vintage and romantic looks? Bring them our way! If you love to daydream you might really enjoy this children’s room’s bucolic decoration by Ursula from  Room to Bloom. For this girl’s room, she opted for a soft grey-based style with pink and vintage accents. We love the combination of colours, wallpaper and pretty furniture pieces she has put together in one single children’s room.

Most of the furniture is white, but Ursula added warmth with some natural timber and lots of sweet décor accessories: fairy lights, a sheepskin rug, some prints and beautiful handmade dolls.

Play Corner in Soft Shades



Room to Bloom is showing us in detail all the great corners in this romantic children’s room. They have wisely selected this gorgeous children’s wallpaper in beige and brown shades, but there are many more interesting things we’ve spotted. Our favourite: the adorable play corner. It features some DIY wooden boxes for toy storage (they’re vintage apple crates on castors) and a teepee which could become the new favourite reading nook. READ MORE

Amazing Dreamy Playgrounds to Wake Up Kids’ Imagination


We really love those people who try to build a better world by creating beautiful things. Monstrum, a wonderful Danish company, knows how to turn kids’ dreams into a reality with their fantastic playgrounds.

As you can see, they seem an actual party for senses. They are not only beautiful and safe but also a great way to train their motor skills and imagination in the coolest possible way. Lots of breath-taking characters and structures appear in streets all over the world to transform daily leisure into a real fairy tale where kids can play, dream, imagine and, of course, enjoy!


Monstrum was created in 2003 by the designers Ole Barslund Nielsen and Christian Jensen and its purpose was to create special urban leisure areas where kids could have the chance to have a very exciting experience where both design and art could play a role in their development. READ MORE

We all know that we have to consider children’s needs when we decorate a room for them. It’s important to limit every area and its function to make their lives easier and help them to differentiate all the activities they can develop in that space.

Hanging canopies are the perfect option to fulfil this need, they are not only cool but also a functional way to create their own corner to spend time with their friends and dream awake.

Today we bring you the most beautiful options to include this special piece in every single kind of atmosphere, getting always a wonderful and dreamy result. Are you ready to fall in love?

Canopies in the Play Area: Creating a reading nook
