Kids Garland DIY, a little décor piece we are adding to Olivia’s room. We are putting the final touches in Olivia’s room today. Most walls in this space are white and the furniture carry clean lines all in white with golden details. So to spark some interest and fun, I am adding colorful elements here and there. Colorful books, wall decals, art prints, garlands and more.
Garlands are being used a lot lately as a decorative element in kids rooms. They can be a very charming and very inexpensive item for the room. Initially, I wanted to create a garland for Olivia’s room made out of paper. But then, while sourcing for colored paper at Wallmart, I saw these cute little buttons and decided to use them as my supplies instead. The garland is tiny and delicate, just like little Olivia. The colors work with most colors in her room. Teal, aqua, pink and some green. I hung the garland around a big mirror that is framed in gold. I plan to take pictures of her room tomorrow, so check back soon to see how it all turned out.

A new whale wall decal is coming to the shop soon. I had a couple of customers inquiring about whale wall decals lately, so I thought it was time for me to give it a try. I had a lot of fun creating our new whale friend. My design process for this particular illustration started with a somewhat complex whale shape. I then played with patterns and its shape. And the more I played with it, I just wanted to simplify the illustration. The fewer the lines, the more appealing this little guy was to me. Below you can see four steps leading to the final whale illustration. But believe me, there were way more than only four steps to this design process.
I decided to use the whale illustration for a wall decal that can be done in two colors. Below is the final look for the new whale wall decal. One was done in black and aqua and the other one in navy blue and gray. I will also work on art prints with my new whale friend. But right now, I am off to design a wall decal with sailing boats, patterned waves and everything nautical. So, what do you think, should we introduce this little fella to your little guy? Cheers!Read More
What colors would you choose for a gender neutral nursery? Our friend Jeannette West, chose gray and yellow, a very popular color combination these days. Jeannette decided not to find out if she is having a baby boy or a baby girl. What a fun surprise! So when creating her gender neutral nursery she filled the space with objects in gray, yellow, white and green. All surrounded by dark wood furniture and light gray colored walls. We were delighted to see the room adorned with the birds and owls wall decal and the pennants wall decal. It looks very cozy and fun. And we can’t wait to meet her baby sometime in April! Thank you so much Jeannette for sharing your photos. You sure got Trendy!

Choosing artwork for gallery wall, let the fun begin! Decorating can be such a fun process. You just have to allow it to be fun. I usually tend to rush when picking items for a new space. The urge to enjoy the space sometimes is greater than my patience. But when I take my time to decorate any room, the final piece turns out much better. The spaces become more personal and definitely a better reflection of my style and my family. My studio makeover is taking shape very slowly. The dark brown walls were painted a very light off-white color. I spent a lot of hours in this space, creating, processing orders, brainstorming, designing or just surfing the net for inspiration. So I want this space to reflect a little more of myself. I want it to be bright with lots of light and good energy. For now we just have some light walls and oversized IKEA frames to play with it. So it is time to pick some artwork for this gallery wall we put together.
Since this studio space will be a studio/playroom, I want to add little things that work not just for me, but for my kids as well. The space will be MOSTLY mine during the week and completely theirs during the weekends. So when I sat down to choose the artwork for my studio’s gallery wall, I chose some items from Trendy Peas and some of the kids’ artwork. Below are my top six choices. They are all very personal to me. I am not sure if I will be using the beach scene yet. But overall, I like how they look together. I am getting a lot of inspiration for the Trendy Peas’ studio from the lovely studio of Joy from Oh Joy. Have you seen it? If not check it out here. It is bright, colorful and full of life! A great place to be inspired and get creative.
I will be posting photos of this makeover little by little. So check back often. To check more ideas on how to choose artwork for gallery wall, visit my Pinterest board here.Read More
