Child-ish. Art for your kids walls
Ever wonder..."Why is everything for a kids wall so....childish? So dated?" "I wish I could make my kids walls cooler, with out getting hives looking through Pinterest or with out spending a ton of money and time"
If you follow TWH, you know that we love all things decor, all things interior and all things pretty and we absolutely believe a kids room should be no exception. We love to admire each others handy work in our homes, especially when it comes to the kids rooms and their walls. We don't think just because they are little they should have Elmo and Elsa covered walls.
Yep, kids love kid things! They love Mine Craft, Frozen, football and Big Bird but that does not mean their rooms have to look like a walking advertisement. Besides, tomorrow they will be obsessed with something else so save your money on the Disney decor. We think kids absolutely love art and beauty. And seeing fun art on their walls just opens their horizons on what art actually is. Now let's get this straight...we are NOT talking about having a Mona Lisa on their walls (unless they want that of course) We are talking totally kid/nursery appropriate pictures that also happens to look cool.
Dear Elisa Sassi, no matter how many pieces of yours we collect we never get sick of your sweet yet totally twisted and sassy (pun totally intended) creations.
Cool posters are a great way to add personality to a room with out spending a lot. Mini and Maximus prints are incredible for boys and girls (and parents too). How incredible is this "Rock" poster. Throw on an Aaron Brothers frame and voila...art.
Speaking of posters as art, give them a little lessons about movies that changed your life with a vintage movie poster. Most posters are reprints so if you are over scouring Ebay and paying crazy prices head to poster site to find the perfect one.
We fell over when we saw Larry Ketang's creations. His versions of movie posters is stunning! If a traditional movie poster for your kids room isn't quite how you see things then look at this.
Give them a little reminder every morning they wake up with this cute banner. When you kiss them to say goodnight it is also a perfect reminder for you.
We love all things arrows. Tattoos, art, prints, cards, decor...so it's no surprise we teared up a little when we saw this print from The Poster Club. TPC is an incredible resource for beautiful prints for the whole house and their kids section is everything but childish.
Every nursery needs to have an animal picture on the wall. And the great ones can hang for years. We absolutely love all of our Sharon Montrose photos but when we came across artist, Nikki McCauley's animal paintings we knew these were perfection. Nothing childish about these but the sweet innocence and gorgeous images of her work can hang anywhere in your home.
Another great place to find art for your kids walls is Land Of Nod. They are right in line with our ideas that a kids room doesn't have to be childish. Just fun, festive, and provoke creativity.
