Quotes for Kid Spaces

Isn’t this play room stunning?  It was featured in the spring edition of Lonny Magazine (and spotted by me at Chic & Cheap Nursery).  My favorite part is the large scale quote on the wall.  You may not be ready to make such a grand statement in your home, but there are lots of other ways to incorporate the written word into kid spaces.  And I just happen to have a whole file of quotes saved up. 



For example, I found this free printable over at Making It Lovely a while back and thought it would be the perfect addition to a nursery (especially one following my favorite trend of neutral walls with pops of bold color).  So head over and get your free printable, then come back and read on for my finds. (P.S. – I’m doing this one in the same style as my Look Book posts so just click on the pictures for more info.)

I was in love with the first two that I saw on the home page, and then fell even more in love with all the rest of these!!! “You are my happy” – that might be the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m printing this whole post for inspiration!!!

It is LONNY not LOONY. I am feeling a little loony now though.. its been a crazy day.

PS: my general rule is.. if the kid can’t read yet, then he/she should not have words on his/her clothes or walls. I am a little OCD like that.

Oops – changing it now, thanks for pointing it out!


Rebecca @ Unexplained X2 June 19, 2011 at 1:48 am

Love this…thank you!

@Rashmi – that is silly! How is a child going to learn to read if they are not exposed to language in many forms? I am against words on backsides.

Also, please learn what OCD actually means.

These are wonderful! The one about the garden and the library is PERFECT, and as a sheep farmer, of course I love the grass is greenest. ‘You are my happy’ is definitely going to my honey.

I guess it’s a good thing we’re moving across the farmyard into a new house with lots of blank walls! :)

Does anyone know the paint color used here?? I can’t find it anywhere!

I would love to know the color that was used for the walls.

This is a good guide for painting walls and design for kids and parents. Love to try this at home and school.

Anyone know where this couch was purchased or the color of the walls…I’M IN LOVE!!!


Tatiana May 22, 2013 at 4:45 pm

Hi! I am all about quotes…I say them to my kids all the time and LOVE this idea for their playroom. Do you happen to know where I can find the one that’s actually in the picture?? The Large Scale Quote?

Thanks so much for the help!!
