Dreamy boho wall decorations for the kids room

hoop wall decor kids
Good Monday Morning!
Today is probably the last day were everyone has to get back into their routine… alarm clocks, school runs, lunch boxes and and and…

Therefore I decided on a soft start over here. Something romantic and from my beloved hometown – Berlin.

Vivien from Momo und Carla makes these adorable bohe wall decorations for the kids room. Not only the kids room, if you ask me, but they do make some great and special gifts. For baby showers or first birthdays, because you can personalise them with names or little words that mean the world to you.

Every hoop or dreamcatcher is made by hand with lot of passion and stunning little details… have a look at the images and see for yourself:

These boho wall decorations truly make for a special corner and you can even ask for specific colours and embellishments.  Pompoms, flowers, little animals or fabric stripes. You choose…

The only problem: How to choose one? They are all adorable!

Happy New Year!

Oh and if you like these, you probably like those cute dolls from Boramiri as well! Or check Zuri House for cute home accessories for the kids room.

We have all seen our share of macrame and boho-kind-of wall deco. But this, my friends, is the stuff that makes my heart jump. This is Olive And The Boy from Australia!

Adorable wall hangings – from flowers, to portraits, to animals or neon. Charmingly made to your requests and wioth many delightful details and love.

If you are looking for a very special gift, the one little special thing to finish the nursery or something uber-pretty to hang above your head… this is it!

Loving the colours and variations. From cute animals for the kids room to a big hipster beard.

By the way, I am planning to write a few things that are on my chest next week. A few life updates…

I hope that I will find the time and the perfect moment, because I always need to ‘right’ moment to get started.

15 happy things for your October!

Paul & Paula 15 things for October
Oh hello! At the moment I am not so sure how I feel about Fridays. On the one hand, I am happy for the weekend to start. On the other hand, I feel like time is literally rushing through. Another week has gone by… waaaaahhh…

I cannot wait to slow down again and breathe. We do have a really great holiday coming up for the Winter break (Dec/Jan) and I just love the pre-excitement before going away. This time even more, because we all really need a break. To relax, to spend time together (slow and quality) and do not follow any wake-up calls, appointments, and other commitments.

How about you?

I do love autumn very much and this year we are lucky to see some sun shining through the pretty leaves as well. But I can also see that this is always a rather hard period for the children. Between the middle of August when they went to school and the very end of October – it is a long period of school weeks. On top the days are getting shorter, the mornings are dark and a little chilly. Everyone is tired. Do you feel the same?

Nevertheless, I have gathered quite a few cool finds as well as reads for you. I hope that you will enjoy them:

Beautiful kids bedding and home accessories from Australia

Paul & Paula: Beautiful kids bedding and home accessories from Australia
This week I showed you some really cool play corners. For your children to play and to have fun. Another thing that really makes a difference in a children’s room is the bedding. Beautiful, soft bedding helps with sweet dreams but it also changes the whole look and feel of the space.

A child’s bedroom is a sanctuary. A place where they can dream, sleep and play.

I just found this Australian brand called Hiccups and their Linen House for Kids range that has your child’s room covered. They have colourful and trendy designs that kids love, and parents would want for their own bed too.

You can find kids bedding, storage bags, cushions as well as beach towels (It is an Australian company after all!) in all kind of sizes – including European sizes – and enchanting designs.

My absolute favourite is this dotted set – so pretty and lovely.

There are also some boho inspired items such as the beautiful and huge macramé that is interspersed with wooden beads throughout. Some cool pillows or pom pom throws…
