See how these wall decals can transfer your kids room!

Mej Mej wall decals

One easy way to personalise the nursery or kids room is to use wall decals. They are easy to put up as well as to remove. And you can find them in all kinds of sizes, designs and colours these days.

When I stumbled upon Mej Mej I was instantly smitten with their happy colours and how these stickers* will turn every room into a sun filled space.

These lovely watercolour designs that come in rainbow shades are adorable. (in case you are not so much into rainbows, the team is happy to accommodate special colour requests!)

Talking about the team, Mej Mej is a husband and wife artist duo, who are making and creating art for the last 30 years. Ten years ago, their first daughter, Ellen, joined their team. Then Julianna, and then Margaret. And Mej is an acronym for the three daughters. It is all a family affair…

Every item is lovingly created from their studio in Austin, Texas. They print and die-cut the reposition-able fabric decals making sure colors remain true and accurate.

Like I said, those rainbow decals* are really fun and add a great dose of happiness to a room. And you can really have some fun and play around with those dots and letters…

Will Mej Mej decals damage your walls?

Not at all! They are made from woven fabric with a self-adhesive backing. The decals are reusable, removable, and reposition-able! Additionally, they are thin which allows them to sit flat on walls. And they have a matte finish and are not shiny like vinyl.

Of course there are not only rainbows and especially for the nursery* you may like those woodland characters and designs. How about a flying fox, a whale or a little landscape?

And like I said, these are easy to remove. Once your child grows up and is interested in specific characters or themes you can change…

Talking about nurseries, a mobile is a ‘must’ and I have the best nursery mobiles for you.

Sunshine accessories for the kids room

Sunshine accessories for the kids room

I was asking Romy to give me a colour. Just any colour that comes in her mind right away. And she said yellow. Why did I ask her? Because I wanted a colour theme for a little kids room accessories round up.

The great thing is that I love yellow, that yellow is perfect for the summer season and it totally adds a ray of sunshine to the room. Rain or shine!

And, just coming back from the first trade show, it looks like it will be a big thing next summer in the collections… which means, you are ahead of the game here today…

I got this feelin’ inside my bones
It goes electric, wavy when I turn it on
All through my city, all through my home
We’re flyin’ up, no ceilin’, when we in our zone
I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet…

(Justin Timberlake – Can’t stop the feeling)

 

Let’s have a look at the fabulous kids room accessories I found in this gorgeous and uplifting colour:

1. Ceiling light* to display your favourite things. A classic that brings joy to every home.

2. Fun cheetah print*.

3. These paper lampshades* have been a hit some time ago, but I love them so much. Beautiful faded yellow for this one!

4. Coolest lion head* made from raphia. A stunner in every room!

5. Yellow rain drop cushion*.

6. I love a great storage basket. And even more when it comes as an apple*

7. Canopy* in sunflower yellow. Stunning in a simple room….

8. Eye catcher. Circus rug*!

9. Supersoft quilted blanket*.

10. Star cushion*!

11. Neon* lightening.

12. Gorgeous cotton blanket* in mustard yellow.

13. A classic by now. But in yellow the basket with wheels* is such a bright addition for the play room.

I love this set of 5 wooden houses*. You can assemble them again and again and they are so versatile.

The simple Scandinavian design is perfect for design conscious families because it is not overwhelming. You can easily add toys and personal belongings without having a space that looks overloaded.

I really like this concept of subtle colors, minimalist furniture and accessories that can be used in many different ways.

‘Letting children’s imagination influence the home is something we want to encourage. The family, the children and home is of great importance to us, and this influences and shapes the way we work.’

Fridge-freezer-wooden toys

OMG! A wooden fridge*! How cool is that? (the kitchen is pretty cool too…)

alphabet-puzzle

Allover I just love wooden toys. And when they are stylish, come in great colours (yes, you can have wooden toys that are not just bland like this cool ABC puzzle* !) then I just love them even more…

A good selection is to be found here*.

Milk, aqua, a few drops of mustard, powder tones – a subtle and sweet colour palette. Also, everything is made from soft linen and washed cotton.

The brand did a little collab with Tartine et Chocolat and I love this thick and cosy linen blanket*. Or how about this tent, I think the powder pink* cover with the cute design really adds a special touch. But don’t worry if you are not a fan of pink, there is an exciting version in sage green* too.
