Stuck on You, Kid.

When we grow up there’s a sense of playfulness from our childhood that never really leaves. We find ourselves reverting back to the days of sidewalk chalk and recess in the most subtle of ways – and in today’s instance, we are giving you another outlet to let those grade school colors fly: wallpaper. These fun and edgy wallpapers not only look great in any children’s room, but can also be brought in to other parts of the house that could use a touch of whimsy.

Speaking of whimsy, these jellyfish-inspired seashell planters from Petitbeast are an innovative way to display your air plants. Below is Etsy seller redcrowned modern adaptation with the…

Jungle Fever

This trend combines the previous popular looks such as chevron and coral and introduces a few new components like olive green and animal motifs.
