Tiny people? The cutest. Tiny people clothes? Ditto. But tiny people decor? Predominantly rainbow-hued and plastic-tastic. Think beyond the Pack ‘n Play and consider giving the playroom the same tastemaker treatment as the rest of your home. Below, a sampling of the dreamiest eye candy on the market.
A PRETTY PLAYMAT
These cushy, easy-wipe foam play mats come in a range of soft pastel hues, with patterns designed to resemble heirloom rugs. Color us obsessed.
A NEUTRAL TEEPEE
Yes, this discreet, lacy teepee is precious and matches your drapes. But it’s also the greatest cleanup time hack ever. (Have the kids stash their junk inside when guests are en route.)
A TOT-SIZED BLACKBOARD
This gground-level, playhouse-sized chalkboard will provide endless activity, and a rotating art piece. Plus, with its Scandi-chic birch frame, it’s just plain good-looking.
A SWOON-WORTHY PLAY KITCHEN
Yes, it’s a serious splurge—but it’s basically an exact miniature replica of your own dream kitchen. Think of it like an heirloom dollhouse: a piece to be passed down for generations to come.
BISTRO-STYLE PLAY CHAIRS
Can you handle the cuteness of these petite rattan bistro chairs? Guarantee it, your mini—and the stuffed animal brigade—will never want to sit elsewhere.
NEON WALL ART
Heart art can be a tad hokey. Or it can be totally fabulous—like this fuchsia wall lamp, perfect for your budding trendsetter.
AN EXPANDABLE ACTIVITY TABLE
This crisp, clean canvas for playtime and crafting has a very rad bonus feature: It grows with your kids (from toddler to tween height), thanks to its adjustable legs.
A VERSATILE AREA RUG
If they’re machine-washable (!!), neutral rugs can totally work for spill-prone kid spaces—like this plushy, striped number that you may low-key steal for your own room.
A CUSHY CLUB CHAIR
There’s nothing your toddler loves more than a tiny throne. And there’s nothing mom loves more than a slipper chair. Behold: the cutest compromise ever.
STACKABLE STORAGE BINS
Most importantly, remember that chic storage solutions will camouflage all number of toddler eyesores. Take for example, these polished, lightweight wooden stacking bins. She shoots, she scores.
