Three Fun Things for Kids' Bedrooms

Three Fun Things for Kids' Bedrooms

My twins are on the verge of turning three (this weekend!), and it has me thinking about the next phase of their bedroom. At its current state, it is still very much a nursery, and they both still sleep in cribs. While I don't have any intention of moving them out of their cribs any time soon (I'm not that crazy), I am starting to dream up ideas of what their "big" little girls' room might look like.

I came across Kip and Co., an Australian brand of beautiful bedding, and I am completely obsessed with their patterns. I usually opt for matching bedding on the twins' beds, but this amazing picture of four beds with four different sets has me rethinking that. (Also, um, bedroom goals!)

Among their many, many amazing styles, these three keep catching my eye. 

How cool are these rugs/playmats? They were developed by a Santa Monica parent (did she go to The Pump Station too? I wonder...) who faced a familiar challenge: what alternative do we have to those bright-colored foam floor mats for kids? She came up with a brilliant solution in Ruggish. It's a stylish rug on one side and a clever play surface on the other. It's easily disguisable in any home, and still very practical. I wish I knew of it years ago. (Note: the Lulu rug featured below appears to be out of stock temporarily, but their other rug, Romy, is currently available.)

My search for a cute and practical play table can end here. Zara Home delivers with a cute, modern table that would fit nicely in most rooms. They also sell a matching bench or stool

P.S. Where can I find a stateside version of this amazing rattan hanging chair company? Because I want one of their products for just about every room in my house!
