As I limit myself to NOT discussing clothing and kids fashion here on the blog, I never get to talk to you about my #1 BY FAR FAVORITE clothing brand for my kids. For YEARS a majority of their wardrobe (not counting school uniforms) has comprised of the great designs and comfy fabrics from Tea Collection. I stock up on the summer clothes at the end of the season, and in here in Florida, my boys wear their Tea Collection tees and shorts all year long. For proof, just scroll through my Instagram feed. You’re bound to see what I’m talking about.
So, WHY am I talking about this when the blog isn’t about fashion? Because Tea Collection has partnered with Art.com to bring their graphics, including this season’s Germany Collection to you in art form! The art of Tea,suits your walls as much as your wardrobe! Previous seasons have been inspired by China and Morocco.
And this is just a small sampling of what’s available. So much potential nursery wall art!

My favorite is Oklahoma Animals. I love this collection of creatures and the wonderful colors.
The Earth’s Animals version is another great print the absolutely a great piece if you like purple and green.

For some reason we usually feature world maps here on the blog, but a beautiful map of the United States can be treasured in the American home. Local geography is just as important as the global version. In preparation for the 4th of July this week, here are a few of my favorite educational versions for your child’s walls.
The Pixel Prince has a few different US map designs but my favorite is the cute art print with illustrated details throughout.
The USA Children Map from Vassi Slavova is perfectly simple and straightforward with easy to use colors.
Children Inspire Design is famous for their map prints and my favorite US map from them is this labeled My Travels Personalized Wall Map Print.
Petit Collage recently released this new fabric wall decal of the U.S.A. I suspect (hope) this might show up in one of my nephew’s rooms soon.
Finally, by Jon Cannell, this Grand Canvas Map Banner is a unique print on a natural canvas banner.

Sometimes “minimalist” posters take things too far, and other times the don’t go far enough. This series of minimalist art prints from Obsessivision have it just right and in a beautiful soft palette of colors.
The Red Balloon (my favorite)
We featured Amber’s (the artist and designer behind Obsessivision) nursery nook last spring, so be sure to visit that as well.
It seems that everything Joy Cho touches turns to gold (sometimes literally!). With her graphic design background and through her mega-popular blog, the Oh Joy! brand has just exploded. From early designs like the Hygge & West Petal Pusher wallpaper to her current party collection at Target, it’s been exciting to watch the collaborations she’s developed over the years. Now with the new Oh Joy! for Nod collection, it’s clear to see that there’s just no limit to the goodness we can expect from Joy.
There are two bedding designs– Pattern Party and…
I like that the pieces mix and match easily between the two so there a lot of room to take the patterns and create your own unique look. My least favorite parts of the bedding are the crib quilts, but without them I really love the sheet and skirt combinations. The sets have matching changing pad covers as well as toddler sheet sets and twin versions.
As part of the Oh Joy! for Nod Collection, Joy curated an art collection for the Nod Institute of Art. Mix and match your favorite art pieces for the perfectly lovely and coordinated gallery wall.
In addition to the bedding and art, one of the most amazing parts of the collection are these lamps…
There’s also this giant Dotted Glow Floor Lamp that would add a stylish glow anywhere in your home…
The Pinwheel Rug is a colorful statement,
I love how you can just pick and choose your favorite pieces throughout the collection and you’ll come out with a perfectly decorated whimsical and eclectic space that will be totally blog-worthy. Let me know if you try it!

I love these colorful, modern, organic cotton quilts from Bunch & Rosa. They’re just as perfect for wrapping up your little one as they are hanging on the wall as art.
There are a few designs with a more tame color scheme, so check those out as well. The quilts are handcrafted in North Carolina and retail for $150 to $250.
There was a time when my grandmother would tell my sister and I the story of Little Red Riding Hood every night. We made story time more varied by asking her to change the color of the hood, but I admit red is my favorite anyway.

Plush Small Stuffed Bird from Time Handmade- $32

Aren’t these screen prints from KLTworks sweet?! I’m a big fan of Kristin’s thread drawings, so these colored serigraphs of her original animal images are a wonderful addition to her etsy shop. Of the Penguin, Raccoon, Deer, Swan, Rooster and Blue Footed Booby Bird, which is your favorite? Or would you prefer the whole collection?
Each of the above prints retails for $30.
I’m also scanning my walls to find a home for this Heron Serigraph. They’re equally at home in Kristin’s Pacific Northwest as they are around us here in Florida!
This limited edition print retails for $60 and there’s also a version with two birds.
This Kickstarter project is nearly there so get in on this one asap! The Tangram States Poster by Midnight Umbrella is a colorful and fun US map with the state shapes made up of only squares, triangles and parallelograms.
Choose an 24″ x 36″ poster with a $29 pledge or add an additional smaller limited edition 18″ x 24″ version for a $49 pledge. For just a $3, download the special edition wallpapers for your desktop, tablet or mobile device!
For more tangram fun, I highly recommend Tangoes Jr. for your toddlers and preschoolers. It’s excellent because the shapes are magnetic and everything fits into the hard plastic case. We’ve had this for years and it’s still fun!
