  • Ocean Themed Kids Rooms With an Unexpected Twist

    Ahoy, mateys! Funky finds off the starboard bow:

    What comes to mind when thinking of decorating with a "theme"? For some of us, a constricting box comes to mind. Well, Oopsy daisy is here to open that box and let the sunshine in! Yes, it's easy to let a theme take over in a room, especially a room for kids. But, a theme can also be a priceless tool to help guide you in your decor choices. Today, our motif focus will be on ocean themed kids rooms, and we'll be giving those bits and baubles an unexpected twist!

    Our featured room, found on houzz.com, is a nautical theme that incorporates typical vintage maritime decor, with artwork featuring sea creatures. To keep the look current, we've used a color palette of gray, blue, and orange. The artwork we chose for the feature wall above the bed is an unexpected style that's modern and whimsical. The artist, Jennifer Mercede, uses a style made up of doodles and fine-detailed scribbles to create recognizable subjects in a modern and funky way. Bold reds, blues, and oranges provide a wide array of color choices for changing accessories on a whim. Settling on those cool, vintage seafarer finds is going to be the hard part!

    We cast our net, and came up with a fun catch. There are so many fun options of pillows, wallpaper, knick knacks and more for ocean themed kids rooms that you may extend the decor throughout the rest of the house! Not to mention, this style is most definitely suitable for the contemporary beachside cottage. So, check out the links to these fantastic aquatic accessories and you'll stumble upon even more on their stores' sites. Plus, if you're looking for more quirky beach and ocean themed kids wall decor, cruise our site for a treasure trove! Be sure to follow our Pinterest board "Nautical Room Decor for Kids" !

    2. Hook Pillows by Seaside Inspired
    3. Whitby Wallpaper by Mini Moderns
    4. Maritime Mini-Pendant Light by Destination Lighting

  • Eat Your Heart Out!

    Have you noticed that a box of chocolates is not high on the list of kids' favorite Valentines treats? Maybe it's something about never knowing what you're gonna get--kids aren't patient when it comes to culinary disappointment (coconut creme, anyone?). So we've pulled together some of our all-time favorite Valentine treats for kids. The terrific thing about these is that they are--wait for it--easy. Really. Even the heart-filled cake.

    The simplest of all is one kids can get in on the act with--chocolate-dipped pretzel sticks, which make great teacher gifts.

    And why not have dessert first on Valentine's Day, beginning with this candy pizza heart? Imagine the little ones decorating it with their favorite toppings (shredded coconut makes a fun substitution for shredded cheese, if that's acceptable in your house--see first paragraph!).

    And these jumbo candy hearts are adorably simple--it's colored dough that gives them the candy-colored appeal.

    Finally, chocolate-dipped strawberries are super simple, as long as you remember to dry the strawberries completely after washing and before dipping. Store-bought, these treats cost a small fortune, but made at home? Priceless. You can afford to make enough for Mom and Dad, too.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

     

     

  • Donna Ingemanson Interview

    “For me, art is not just a career-it's a lifestyle.”

    We are very fortunate to have Donna Ingemanson in our family of artists and are thrilled to feature her as February’s Artist of the Month! Her warm and friendly style covers everything from animals and cute bugs to sports and world travel. We had a chance to catch up with her recently to learn a little bit more about what makes her tick. Here’s what she had to say:

    GreenBox: Did you always know you wanted to be an artist?

    Donna Ingemanson: As a child, my mom always told me that I’d be an artist but I actually started off studying to be a veterinarian. Then one day, I was in my dorm while some friends of mine were drawing and I thought to myself “I could do that!” So I did, and from there I switched my major to art!

     

    GB: Tell us about your style?

    DI: It’s hard to pigeon hole it, but I would say that it’s personal to who I am.

     

    GB: Do you have set times for creating art or do you let it happen randomly?

    DI: I have a schedule where I create on Mondays. Typically, I paint about 4-5 pieces a day. It is an unpredictable process though and I’ve learned that you have to let go of what you think it should be and just let it flow.

     

    GB:  What message or feeling are you trying to communicate with your art?

    DI: Depends on the day :)

     

    GB:  What do you like to do in your spare time?

    DI: I organize the local farmers market in my town and I like to spend time in my tiny garden. It’s where I go to free my mind!

     

    GB:  What artists do you look up to?

    DI: The artists that inspire me are Cy Twombley, Wayne White, Paul Klee, Pierre Bonnard and all the unsung artists who stick with their responsibility to create art.

     

    GB: Which creative medium would you love to pursue but haven’t yet?

    DI: Music and photography but there’s never enough time in the day!

     

    GB: What’s your favorite music these days?

    DI: Hawaiian music

     

    GB: What superpower would you have and why?

    DI: I’d like to be able to fly and also to stop time to allow for more creative practices!

     

    GB: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

    DI: Follow your own vision.

     

    GB: Lastly, any words of advice for aspiring designers/artists?

    DI: For me art is not just a career-it's a lifestyle. Being a visual addict has helped. Also, I always think of the advice that Ted Turner gave to his kids: 'Early to bed - early to rise - work like hell - and advertise.'
