I’m so excited to partner with one of my favorite brands for this all exclusive square LilyPad in two gorgeous and versatile colors: Sea Glass and Blush!

 As a modern mom of four I want the best for my children! That is why I feel great partnering with Nook. The use of non-toxic, organic materials are safe for my family so I feel at ease using Nook products all over my home! They keep their manufacturing footprint close, with all products being made in North America. That creates a greener company for the future of our children’s world. Nook is a brand that I have trusted for years and I couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with them!

I hope you love your Nook play mat as much as our family does!

Our family and playroom…

Here is a tour of the kids playroom and family room. It really is just a cozy and fund space! The kids spend a lot of time hanging out in this room as it is off the kitchen. Our main part of the house is so formal so this fun pink and navy space is enjoyable and just happy to hang out in!

Wallpaper is removable by Wallpops (ordered through Amelie & Max)

A re-purposed train table spray painted.

The pink sofa that folds into a sleeper bed.

The kids can enjoy playing with toys and cozy up with homework at the large table.

The large shag carpet by Rugs USA was perfect for wrestling boys and soft enough for baby. They are a great price and ship quickly! I highly recommend them!

King found this chair at Pier One and had to have it as his throne! It is a popular spot the kids fight over.
My favourite cozy knit blanket by Nora Jane Knits adds softness and makes you want to cuddle up with your kids.
A collection of pictures and photo’s make the wall inviting and fun.

The teepee hideway is perfect to watch the iPad or play quietly.

A mix of blocks at the table are always being built and knocked over.

The swing is a popular spot for Apple. She enjoys swinging while we sit near in the Babyletto Tuba chair.

Our Babyletto Tuba is great! It is wide enough for you and your child. We read Kingsley his school books in this chair and even have room if Apple wants to join!

I have a love for Good Night Light lamps. We have the pineapple also and they are so cool lit at night!
One of the most amazing gifts I received from blogging was this painting of me leaving the hospital with Apple. 
Soft and cozy corners that give the kids extra seating. The vintage wall animals are repurposed wallpaper by Inke.
The silhouettes are made by Three Daughters Design Shop . I will show below how she does it! 

Apple spends hours playing at her little kitchen in front of the sunny window. We have a Lorena Canals washable rug in front. It adds softness and I love how great they are for washing in the laundry machine!
