Make a statement with children's art

We talk a lot about getting crafty with the kids, creating wonderful masterpieces together - wonderful quality time. However, we've never talked about what to do next. Between projects we do at home and creations they bring home from school and nursery I am inundated with their artwork so much so that there is a pile on my dining table that I'm watching grow bigger everyday and secretly challenging myself to see how big this pile can get!

I would love to display their artwork around the house in a way that doesn't make my house look like a nursery school so I'm on a mission to find beautiful, stylish ways to display the kid's artwork in your home.

Here is something that made me swoon (as seen here)! More to come soon. Feel free to send any of your own ideas to

Decorate your child's room - top tips for creating happy spaces (part 3)

In our final instalment of our 'New Year, new home' decorating series we cover 2 more tips that will hopefully provide the finishing touches to your little ones' rooms.

Tip #5 Make school cool

Introduce educational decoration into your child's room in a subtle way. Find pieces that are fun, engaging and teach your child about the world around them so they will enjoy themselves while becoming a little boffin without even realising it. With so much to look at to keep their attention, these 2 pictures below are absolutely perfect (both by artist Laila Hills).

Tip #6 Think safety

Safety in a little one's room is always a top priority. Give the room a thorough check to ensure it is safe from harm. Give special attention to plug points and electrical cords to ensure they are out of reach. Check windows have childproof latches and that window areas are clear of furniture so that children are not able to climb onto them to reach the windows.

That's it! Enjoy the fun of creating happy spaces!
