Use empty paint cans as fun holders for their desks. These are available at paint stores and I have seen them at some craft stores.

Fun string of lights for a kid’s room – this is a great one your son or daughter could help with!

Meet Karen

Imagine walking into your living room to find your toddler covered in marker along with your furniture! My daughter's "Marker Art" was a defining moment. It was then that I reinvented my business to find the very best family-friendly furnishings and solutions for my client's homes.

My blog shares the very best of what I have learned about family-friendly design these past 18 years.
