We've mentioned in the past that children's memorabilia can add a sweet spice to your decor, but don't forget about the lifestyle stores geared towards children as well!
One of my favorite weekend activities is strolling through Land Of Nod or Pottery Barn Kids to see what kinds of whimsical pieces they have on display for children's bedrooms, that I can steal for my own adults-only condo. I'm always pleasantly surprised at some of the things I can find. See below for a few of my recent discoveries:
1. Snazzy candy cane bed sheets from Land Of Nod. I love to buy the just the pillow cases for a smart accent. On sale for $22.95 - $31.95
