Re-Creating the Children's Room

I have two boys and I am looking to create a new space for them to help nuture their school life. I want to create a space that is clean and organized. I like for a color palette, the rich pastels colors mixed with the natural pastels. Also, I have been into white lately as a base, maybe its because of the snow. Anyways, I thought it would be fun to share with you my Idea Board. 

Here are some of my ideas taken from one of my American Favorites.....The Land of the Nod.

Mörkret faller

Nyckelring från Lisbeth Dahl.
Ljuslykta från House Doctor. 

Snön faller ner eller snarare öser ner. Det är måndag.
Kanske inte den roligaste dagen i veckan och kanske inte det roligaste vädret.
Men dagen är inte hemsk för det. 
Nu när mörkret börjar falla så blir allting sagolikt här. Värmeljus är tända, putumayos julskivan är på, pepparkakor och jul verkstan är i full rulle.

Keeping Warm in the Cold

To find true tranquility in cold weather, one must feel warm inside and out. I have found a few things to help with the internal warming. And please note, if you are from a warmer climate like myself, you should probably double the recipe! :)
