“Draw on your walls!” said no mom ever…. Instead, pay tribute to your favorite crafting material, the crayon, by adding these fun Crayon Wall Decals to the walls instead!

Reading is so much fun, but what makes it even better is beautifully displaying your family’s favorite books and nick knacks on these Rainbow Book Shelves from Pottery Barn.

We designed this adorable girl’s bedroom in Bryn Mawr. The rainbow is used throughout the space. It is especially prominent in this bedding, which was from Land of Nod (now Crate & Kids).  While this bedding is no longer available, similar bedding is still available can be found here.

If you are really itching for a creative way to use crayons, other than coloring, here’s a great DIY project. Use a hot glue gun to adhere your crayons to a canvas board and then use your blow dryer to melt them into organic looking stripes. (Or if you’re feeling lazy, you can order something similar from Etsy here.)
