Stick and Peel – the best self adhesive wallpapers for the kids room!

best self adhesive wallpapers kids room

We already know that wallpapers are back and it looks like they are going to stay. Perfect, because the designs of today are fantastic and can transform any interior into a stunning space.

One step further and much easier is self-adhesive wallpaper. Stick and Peel wallpaper is made with a proprietary adhesive that is specifically engineered for quick application and removal. And therefore can update walls in just a few minutes. So much faster, easier, and cleaner than dealing with paste. They totally take the effort out of wallpapering.

Furthermore, self-adhesive wallpaper is completely removable and reusable.

So your dreams of making a big impression in your home or just a corner or an accent wall, are very close. Plus the designs are just as stunning as the ‘real thing’. And your child’s room is one of the best spaces to try some colour, fun decor and maybe a bold wallpaper. Self-adhesive wallpapers are easy to put and to take down and often they are waterproof and washable as well. Win-win!

So, I went out and had a look to find the best and most interesting self-adhesive wallpapers for the kid’s room:

I hope you liked the selection of the best self-adhesive wallpapers for the kid’s room. There are a few helpful things to know as well:

Every shop gives you the possibility to order samples so that you can see the print and colours in your home and get a better feeling. Also, most shops are happy to do the wallpaper or wall mural in the exact size that you need.

And one more thing – try and think a bit outside the box. Wallpapers, especially removable, are great for lots of things. You can use them for dollhouses for example, or to decorate an old piece of furniture.

Happy decorating!

Why not renting an RV for your next family trip?

rv share

I am the first to admit that the whole camping or mobile home thing is not the first thing that comes in my mind when thinking about a holiday. But we did rent an RV for two trips (when we went to Iceland and during our California road trip)and I have to say – it is really fun.

And the kids like it. Or in their own words: ‘We don’t like it, we love it!’ And that counts for a lot as well, because they just loved to be on the road with a house. They loved being so close to nature and to basically just pull up at a camping, jump out and discover a new spot. And I loved that part too!

Altogether I find it great for family trips because it adds a little bit of adventure. It brings you very close as a family, can require some improvisations, and who doesn’t like a campfire? On top of it, it is a great way to explore a country and having all of your stuff and comfort in the back.
The children keep asking when we will do another RV trip and we are thinking about it.

And that is where RVshare can be a big help. Because RVshare is the world’s first and largest RV rental marketplace, serving more than 60,000 RV owners across the US. Connecting RV renters and RV owners (think about it as an Airbnb for RV’s), and with a range from travel trailers to luxury motorhomes. And trust me, the luxury RV’s can beat a 5 star hotel room easily!

Especially in the US, you have so many road trip options. From the awesome National Parks like Yosemite, Yellowstone or Zion, to the less busy and equally superb State Parks. Down the coasts or how about a trip around the Great Lakes? And if you like some more inspiration for great RV family trips, this article is a good source.

Good to know about RVshare:

To ensure a safe experience, the company offers industry-first rental insurance and 24-hour roadside assistance.

You can travel easy by either finding an RV in your local area or at your destination.

You can filter your search and compare RV rental prices, features, reviews and more.

The secure RVshare payment system verifies accounts and performs fraud checks to help keep your transactions safe.

Some motorhomes are even deliverable, just search for them. (a very practical point, especially if you are not planning to start and end your trip at the same place)

So, if you think you are ready for some road trip fun, and quality time with your family why not renting an RV? Because another great thing about this form of transport is: It allows you to travel at your own pace! Such a great way to slow down and unwind…

In collaboration with RVshare.

The kids brands collabs of the moment!

rylee cru and mon petit shoes

When two cool kids brands collaborate it usually results into something fabulous. Putting creative minds together can make for a powerful product.

Some will sound like a match made in heaven, other might take you by surprise. Similar styles evolve into something wonderful, and very opposite brand identities are innovative and surprising.

Whatever it is, these matches are more and more important in the fashion world. Reach new customers, staying relevant, and especially being able to offer products out of your ‘normal collections’ in a fast paced world.

Personally, I love them too. Because they often bring some fresh air, a new point of view and something fun!

Therefore, I am sharing the coolest kids brands collaborations in the shops right now:

AIGLE x MATHILDE CABANAS

AIGLE x MATHILDE CABANAS

This collab makes happy, even in the rain! The comfortable rain boots from Aigle with a little sweetness of everyday life. Mathilde Cabanas revisited the famous Lolly Pop Boot* for the pleasure of the little ones. (and of course their mums too!)

 

Harry Potter x Boden

HARRY POTTER X BODEN

My children are obsessed with Harry Potter and this collab definitely did not go unnoticed. The collection* puts Mini Boden’s playful, heritage spin on Harry Potter’s characters and locations. You will find 3D embroidery, colour-change sequins, fluffy owl romper, an embellished bomber jacket, and much more.

 

reebok-tao

REEBOK X THE ANIMALS OBSERVATORY

The Animals Observatory have collaborated* with global sportswear brand Reebok in order to bring their most iconic shapes to life. A unique and fashionable approach to children’s sneakers. These iconic Reebok styles pay homage to the vintage look and bold designs that both brands are known for.

 

POUDRE ORGANIC x CHARLOTTE PRIOU

POUDRE ORGANIC x CHARLOTTE PRIOU

The softest pieces, as we know them, in subtle colours from Poudre Organic. And this season with a sweet peacock print designed by Charlotte Priou.

 

veja x bonton

VEJA X BONTON

Two hot French brands joined forces. The collaboration* mixes the minimalist aesthetics of Veja and Bonton’s timeless touch. Together they designed a line of 4 sneakers in a retro colour scheme. Available in two designs, two exclusive colours, and with laces in organic cotton or velcro.

 

Bonjour George x Jojo Factory

BONJOUR GEORGE x JOJO FACTORY

Backpacks, lunch bags and other important accessories for school and/or nursery just got a cool look. The collab* between bag designer Jojo and pattern master George is divine.

 

rylee cru and mon petit shoes

RYLEE AND CRU X MON PETIT SHOES

A lovely collection of hard and soft-soled shoes to complement your child’s autumn wardrobe! With 2 prints designed by the incredible rylee + cru for mon petit shoes. All shoes in the collection are handmade in the USA!

This is an exciting and exclusive collection of limited edition art inspired sweaters, comprising of 4 unique, abstract designs. The concept behind the collection plays on the desire to be in harmony with the universe and to live a natural, simple life.

Are those the cutest kids room lamps ever?

luna lana kids room lamps
Before I start today’s post I want to apologise. Because I promised you another Genuine Friday story and I failed. I was sitting behind my desk yesterday trying to write something but I just could not find the words. The irony is that I wanted to write about ‘working from home’. And clearly there is much to write about because as much as it fits with our big family life perfectly it can be really hard too. And days like yesterday just happen. I get distracted all the time, cannot really motivate myself and everything but my writing looks at me…

So, there you go. And instead of reading about the good and bad of working from home, I am showing you the cutest kids room lamps ever. I hope they make up for it a little bit…

Because seriously – how adorable are these handcrafted pendant lights?

 

luna lana kids room lamps
Luna Lana is based in the colourful and vibrant city of Melbourne, Australia and the brainchild of Stephanie Ng. And every lamp is handcrafted and made with 100% natural Merino Wool.  A sustainable design concept that is such a sweet addition to any room.

The kids room lamp collection is called fairy tales. But fear not, there are some really cool designs for the grown up rooms your house as well. we set out to create for this product. How about the winter collection to help the atmosphere once the cold season starts?

 

luna lana kids room lamps
I think that these kids room lamps make perfect gifts  – for small and big – and definitely put a smile on everyone’s face.

L o v e!

More children’s room accessories? How about these beautifully embroidered hoops or these colourful bedding sets?

Have a lovely Friday everyone!

Stylish and cosy nursery in subtle shades of grey

grey nursery

Hello! Bonjour! Ciao! I think this week has me back in my routine and back with an Interior Tuesday and I am planning very much to do another article for the Genuine Friday series.

And for today’s pretty apartment we are traveling to Gothenburg in Sweden and have a peek in the area of Linnéstaden. The neighbourhood is very central and yet known for its small shops, galleries, cafes, and restaurants.

So, in the middle of Linnéstaden you can find this beautiful, completely renovated apartment that is definitely not just an ordinary place. All details from the past were preserved in the form of stucco, wooden floors, cast iron elements, and stunning doors for example.

And it includes a lovely grey nursery that makes you swoon as well!

Therefore, we will have a look around, especially at the nursery, and you will understand what I am talking about:

 

grey nursery
This is a very bright room with lovely high ceilings and the clean Scandinavian look we love so much.

Get the look: The grey canopy* matches perfectly with the walls. And the crib bumper* enhances the whole look too.  A cool ride-on car* to race around the house, a stylish rug * (this one is washable!).

 

grey nursery

grey nursery
Sofa in the kids room? Perfect for feeding, story time and for the child to relax. And what those snuggly blankets and cushions, it looks all very cosy to me!

Get the look: Dusty pink muslin blanket* (various sizes available), white cotton ball lights*, and of course a natural storage basket* for all the tiny bits.

 

grey nursery
Get the look: Red play kitchen* and black pushcart*.

string shelves ideas
A few images from the rest of this stunning family space and I am sure you agree. The colour in the bedroom is a stunner. And of course, no Swedish home without a String shelf system.

Happy Tuesday!
