Group It

August 25, 2010

This is one of my favourite examples of art for a playroom or nursery.  An old book of illustrations or an old children’s book…just tear out the pages and frame them for a dramatic grouping.


Embroidery hoops are also another great way to add colour and pattern.  Use them on the walls or even hanging from the ceiling!

I love this idea too – decoupaged paper doll clothing!


Most any type of artwork in a large group creates a nice focal point.  A set of alphabet cards, framed fabrics or scrapbook paper, black and white photographs, teacup plates… the key is using a repetition of shape and subject matter.  Do you have any grouped art in your home?

    I love the idea of framing illustrations from a childrens book. I think I might end up doing that with Ikea frames.

    Great blog! I had no idea you wrote a kids blog. I can’t wait to read more!

    I love the last picture of the alphabet flash cards! Where did you find?

    Thanks for the great ideas!

      I’m pretty sure the alphabet flash cards are by Charley Harper. I’ve seen them in local bookstores and at Anthropologie.
