When paired with Scandinavian hues and texture, pink is made warm and modern. Offset by gray and a sweet but edgy art print, this room is fresh enough for spring and stylish for the most discerning of art and design lovers. We love the dusky colors and this delightful creature Miss Della.

4 Easy Ways to Upgrade + Update a Tween Girl’s Bedroom

Oh Eight Oh Nine

 

My daughter who just turned 8 has been requesting an update to her room -she’s had the same set up since age 5 so it’s time. Her taste and interests have changed.

Our changes will have to be in the details, because we won’t make any major furnishing changes, and we just painted about 3 years ago -and it’s in perfect condition.  I also invested in high quality shades and curtains.

There are new fun ways to update the look without getting rid of the big investment pieces.

 

1. Add a High Quality Poster or Photo that Changes the Mood

Interior Philosophy gets this look right.

 

 

2. Change Those Drapes!

 

 

I am loving these Boho style Pom Pom curtains…..from Susie Watson Designs + Serena & Lily

 

3. Add Throw Pillows that Say Fun!

4. Add Sheepskin for Cozy Style

Pineapples are the best beach food ever, and this cutie rocks her little pineapple look perfectly! From NEXT.

 

It’s almost beach season say my special fashion advisors ages five and seven and it’s “totally time for us to give fashion advice too!”

Now,  I try to take their advice with a grain of salt because they have a general attitude that often if an outfit is fabulous it benefits from becoming two outfits, e.g. they love to wear two outfits at a time, I mean why not?

Nevertheless, they have helped me pick out some super winners from the amazing world of kid’s creative style and fashion! Do enjoy my darlings!

Ideas for Spring Style -Best of Kids Fashion

cavalier-kids

Singapore Style tastemaker ….Cavalier Kids -We love this brand because it’s just plain fun.

Children love to move so stretchy or loose fabrics are smart choices and soft on skin natural textiles like bamboo, cotton and cotton blends are best.

Bright funky colors take center stage today and pretty much anything with fun embellishment or a hint of the unusual when it comes to texture. And of course, we all know sporty looks and animals are always a sure hit!

So much fun with Munster Kids...and yes, a monster is definately a type of animal.

Castelbajac Collection from Wolf and Rita.png

Wolf and Rita has a line of gorgeously unusual pieces and not just amazing dresses, lots of fun tee shirts and short sets too.

 

We are madly in love with the British brand No Added Sugar too, because well, it’s just stylish pretty and sharp clothing that fits, and is adorable and practical.

ladida girls.jpg

Ladida is full of gorgeous prettiness, and dresses you definitely want to save forever, as in tucked away in your top drawer til your baby has her own babies…Kahlo inspired designs for the spring-summer season will make your heart swell. Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was a model of bravery and brilliance, and so for me, she makes a great example for little girls. And everyday beauty was important to her as well, just a visit to her Coyoacán house tells you this story in the most thrilling of ways.

H&M KIDS.png

H&M wins the prize for affordability with their incredible prices, cotton is the best choice for kids as their active lives mean appliques and etc will fall apart at this price point. But a cotton tee-shirt or dress can be washed on cold a dozen times. PLUS they have an affinity for patterns with cats…and dresses like this one come in @ $ USD 4.99

Curated by Kids -Beautifully Fun Rooms Part II

Hello! Welcome to part 2 of our popular curated by kids decor series! This is a fun collaborative effort by Rosalina, her daughters, and a occassionally random group of neighborhood kids, mostly girls age 5-12. We noticed that if something seems magical or fantastical it’s a winner. Case in point, a rabbit leaping over a mountain in gorgeous graphic wallpaper  in the sweetest of muted pinks,  or an eyelashed pillow….or even a pear dollhouse…

Decorating Ideas -Swans

 

MyLove Affair with Swans

I never really thought about swans -as a decorative element, or a favorite animal until my daughter requested a stuffed swan for her birthday -and I was astounded by how hard it was to find a nicely made one -I had to order one from Germany. I realized in fact they were the perfect bird for the animal crazy primary schooler -and they can add a touch of sophistication and the vintage as well. I hope you will be absolutely inspired by this collection of beautiful artistic designs, antiques, and eclectic swan decor items.

Amazing Kids Dinnerware + Table Top Ideas

We finally graduated from our collection of super cute vintage plastic plates + bowels and we are ready to use porcelain plates! I wanted to get something that would appeal to grade-school age kids,  but can be used into the teen years. And I wanted to avoid cartoons and Disney Princesses etc.

We have used a combo of single vintage plates in coordinating colors, and discovered Jim Ward’s (JimBobArt) amazing line of plates with humorous and illustrative style plates, RiceDK and so many great sets, enjoy the beautiful selection!

If you chose vintage places I suggest hand washing so the finish does not come off and expose your kids to any toxic paint etc. Do not use cracked plates, and feel free to combine vintage pieces with usually pricey sale items single pieces from department stores, thrift or outlets.

I recently curated an amazing collection of animal themed plates for one little boy, each sources sourced from thrift stores or sales at retailers (where only odd numbers of plates are on sale) so this approach can be used for any taste.

Best of Cute Baby Girl Bathingsuits

theberry

Do you love the deliciousness that is a toddler in a bathing suit? For your cuteness needs for today! Naturally I love to see that handsome surfer taking a stroll along the beach, but one of my favorite sights is a baby in a swimming suit. Adorable!

Four Fun Designs by Lydia Meiying, via Spoonflower

 

Lydia is a favorite designer of mine, and she has a great selection, we are in love with her Chinese wood cut fabrics, particularly popular for the inclusion of tigers as voted by our jury of toddlers and primary school fashionistas!

Cute swimsuit fabric can be hard to come by, depending on your skill level you need to get a pattern that will work for your suit, allover scattered is great for the novice. So far, the best places I have found are Spoonflower, you can order many of the artist designed fabric in a swimsuit appropriate material (sport lycra). However, Fabric Fairy has an entire section of swimsuit fabric so it’s easy to find, and lots of fun patterns as well.

Curated by Kids -How to be Stylish

via forever21

Our survey of how to be stylish when interviewing our very own fashionistas mostly included discussions of sparkles, naturally.

Nevertheless, it was agreed by our very wise panel that a rule to be followed at all times is to always have a picture of an animal on your clothes, when asked for additional tips, one 4 yr old advisor summed it up succinctly: “What animal you like, or many animals.”
