It’s the Little Things

A photo of one little thing in a kids’ room that catches the eye and leaves a memorable impression. Sometimes it’s small. Sometimes it’s a little bigger….but it always makes you smile each time you see it.

It's the Little Things {Swinging Monkey}

Another really great idea in the “It’s the Little Things” segment. If you have forgotten or don’t know what’s important about little things in kids’ room design, read my first “Little Things” post about the painted mouse door, then come back here and this will make more sense. This all white room? It’s a cute […]

It's the Little Things {Music Wallpaper}

The music wallpaper behind this toddler bed definitely fits in the “it’s the little things” segment. It caught my eye and made me smile—not because it left a memorable impression but rather it brought back fond memories. I learned to play piano when I was a kid, starting with lessons at age eight. While the […]

It's the Little Things {Teen Shoe Boxes}

Another really great idea in the “It’s the Little Things” segment. Does your teen girl have a closet or bedroom corner for flinging shoes (a.k.a. “storage”). Have a problem solver that made the little things list……shoeboxes. Now these aren’t your everyday boring brought-from-the-store-shoeboxes-when-she-bought-the-shoes. These are worthy of teen room accessory display. These stacking storage boxes […]

It's the Little Things {Tree Guardrail}

Another really cute idea in the “It’s the Little Things” segment. One of the best parts of bunk beds is climbing to the top bunk. Know any kids who want to sleep on the bottom? Nope. Nothing exciting about “climbing” into the bottom bunk. So what’s the little thing here? For kids, it’s the climb […]

It's the Little Things {Catching Raindrops}

Another really cute idea in the “It’s the Little Things” segment. This is a really cute little girl’s room. Probably toddler age just transitioned from baby crib to big-girl-bed. The mix of neutrals—gray, white, beige—and soft pink with a more vibrant hue on the floor says a cute little girl likes to play here. The […]

It's the Little Things {Old Fashioned Christmas}

Another really cute idea in the “It’s the Little Things” segment. Nothing says “old-fashioned” better than vintage crates with stenciled lettering, weathered boards with fading paint, and burlap mixed with gingham. Add all three of the above to gingerbread men, toy soldier nutcrackers, and scraggly evergreen trees in slightly dented galvanized pails and you have […]

It's the Little Things {Living Room Toy Storage}

Another really cute idea in the “It’s the Little Things” segment. Getting close to the holidays and guests will be arriving; some for a few hours, some for a few days. Grown-ups like to sit and talk about stuff….the good old days, times spent together, and loved ones near and far. Kids get bored quickly […]

It's the Little Things {Nope....No Monsters Here}

Another really cute idea in the “It’s the Little Things” segment. I’m sure you have seen the “Keep Calm and Carry On” artwork during the last year or so. Have you noticed all the variations on the same theme? Keep Calm, I’m a Nurse. Keep Calm and Eat More Candy. Keep Calm and Enjoy the […]

It's the Little Things {Cabinet Door City}

Another really cute idea in the “It’s the Little Things” segment. The sight of this little cityscape put a big smile on my face. Actually this little thing made me giddy with excitement, wanting to go in the room and open the cabinet doors! Someone took the normally blah-blah-blah cabinet doors and added endearing enchantment. […]

It's the Little Things {Artfully Painted Door}

Another cute idea in the “It’s the Little Things” segment. This artfully painted door was another little thing that caught my eye and made me smile. The design just exudes happiness, cheerfulness, and sunny disposition. Can’t you just see a cute little one named “Tibo” bouncing around the room, all smiles and full of excitement? […]
