It's that time of year again. Kids are packing up and going back to school. Give them a head start with the right supplies and a great place to study at home. Creating a workspace is as simple and can be. In fact, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3...
1. Designate your study area.
Use a room, nook, or part of the bedroom free from distractions or noise.
2. Make it comfortable & useful.
A plush reading chair is a nice touch, while a desk is needed for writing.
3. Keep supplies within reach.
Help them save time and get their work done quickly so they can play.
Create a space that’s just as sweet as your little one. DwellStudio has all the little touches that transform a room into a proper nursery—in charming prints and bold colours that are every bit as sophisticated as their designs for grown-ups.
As with all of their pieces, everything is designed to coordinate together, creating a harmonious and peaceful space for baby. The DwellStudio baby collection is a Modern Karibou favourite.
Coming up with the perfect baby gift can be an enormous task. There are baby showers for the necessities, but once the bundle of joy has arrived it is nice to give them something more personal. By default, many well-meaning gift givers opt to choose a cuddly stuffed animal, or a toy for the gift of choice. Although these are perfectly good options, there are more interesting choices.
A piece of jewelery that will be valued for years to come is a lovely present. I also adore the idea of starting a collection for the wee one that you can add to year after year (think coins, a charm bracelet, an ornament).
My favourite idea is to begin a library for the baby. Books are something that kids and parents never really get enough of, and will be used over and over again. As the child grows, you can choose books that reflect their likes and personality, but for the first bunch pick some that have special meaning for you. Selecting your most cherished childhood stories is a great way to go.

I'm nerdy and love the use of roll down biology charts that pop up now and then. The large, precise drawings of flora and fauna are expertly illustrated. Although vintage, they look natural in a modern setting. If you are fortunate and find two that compliment each other put them over the couch in a living room, or above your family eating area. Leave the rest of the room simple and clean.
This image on Pinterest reminded us of our adorable Ride-Ons. The safe all wood handle is easy to hold onto and the cute design makes it easy to move in all directions. Sometimes the greatest design feature of a room is the one that reminds us who lives there. These sweet creatures are safety tested to world standards and will be passed on for years. They make really great gifts too!
