Painted cabinet doors add a playful touch to this wall storage unit featured on HGTV's Home by Novogratz. A mix of open shelves and hidden storage minimizes clutter and allows for the artful display of toys, trophies and games.
Nautical-inspired books were added to mounted bookshelves in this nursery. The open shelves allow for book covers to stand alone as art, keeping more traditional art pieces out of reach for little hands.
Book cover wallpaper brings a beautifully colorful child-like spirit to the design. The colorful backdrop is a lovely embellishment to the neutral dresser and white window. The upholstered dresser features three drawers and a nailhead border and design.
Turn car rides into story time by making your own audio book. Hither and Thither’s Ashley Muir Bruhn uses the Voice Memo function on her iPhone to record her kids’ favorite books. This allows her to incorporate the voices, sound effects and pauses that they’ve come to expect at story time.
Spice up your kid’s portable library with age-appropriate comic books and graphic novels. Nathalie Laitmon, publisher of Suburban Misfit Mom, recommends the Big Nate books, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the go-to classic Batman.
The white and beige base of this stylish nursery gets bright color boosts from accessories like kid's books and a mobile. Soft textures (an animal skin rug, a knitted pouf) layer in interest that's fun for little hands to explore.
In this cozy corner, bins hold stuffed animal friends and blankets; labels secured with clothespins are a cute and flexible way to tag what's inside. Colorful kids' books become part of the visual fun on a tower bookshelf.
To create a kids' nook that complements the living room design, modern chairs with durable, ribbed fabric were brought in along with a modern coffee table and an easily accessible library of kids' books.
This sophisticated play room is one that the children in the family will love for years to come given its flexible (and so chic!) black and white palette and open layout. Thin wall shelves let favorite children's books become colorful decor.
