Celebrity Design Reveal: Tamera Mowry’s Big Boy Room

Navy and Gray Big Boy Room

As one half of one of the most famous sets of twins to grace a sitcom in the 90s (where are our fellow Sister, Sister lovers?), Tamera Mowry knows a thing or two about siblings. And now that she has little ones of her own, she’s teaching them how to share and share alike, starting with the Jack + Jill style layout of their bedrooms.

This mama of two reached out to Oilo Studio for help with this unique design project, and we’re so excited to show you four-year-old Aden’s classic big boy room. It features lots of grow-with-me details and fun design elements that this lucky preschooler is sure to love. Oh, and don’t forget to check out little sister Ariah’s beautiful space over on Project Nursery!

Modern Boy’s Bedroom Reveal

Modern Boy's Room

Back when I started Little Crown Interiors, one of my very first clients was living in a traditional home in Beverly Hills but loved modern design. I worked with her to come up with a compromise for her son’s room. Then a few years later, she moved into a very modern home and called me asking for a very colorful and modern bedroom for her son, now age six. Some of his favorite things are video games and astronauts, so I created a design that was bright and bold with modern touches and lots of fun. (more…)

Move over Elf, There’s a Turkey on Your Tail

Turkey on the Table

Fall is here and we couldn’t be more excited. I love the season of chunky knit sweaters and high boots (side note, coveting the suede over the knee boots that are everywhere, you?) But what I really love about this time of year is it always feels like the perfect time to get back to a consistent family schedule of school and activities. Plus, Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday of the year. I love everything about it—the food, the decor, the traditions and the time to be home and grateful for the simple things. (more…)

Tea Party Birthday Fit for a Princess

Princess Tea Party

Summer birthdays are my favorite. The temps are warm, days are free and everyone is in the mood for an outdoor party. Earlier this summer, Sloane and I received a tea and princess birthday invitation from our friend Julie to attend her daughter Lauren’s 5th birthday party. We RSVP’d with a big YES and prepared to get our tea party princess on! (more…)

Crafts For Kids Who Love Little Critters

Spring is here, and all kinds of little creatures are coming to life. Our yard is full of ladybugs and little caterpillars that will soon be making their transition to butterflies—they never cease to delight my kids. And another thing that always seems to entertain little ones is a cardboard toilet paper tube! For whatever reason, kids always want to keep and play with them. So I’ve created a fun (and super simple!) recycled spring kids craft in which kids can use their cardboard tubes to create butterflies and ladybugs to their hearts’ content. (more…)

WHO Loves a Great Dr. Seuss Activity? We Do!

Dr. Seuss Activity

Super mom Emily Klaparda recently celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday with her kids with a fun-filled week of Dr. Seuss activities! Of course, these activities can be used any time of the year, whether it be for a birthday party activity or just a fun project for the kids to work on. I know my kids love it when I break out the craft supplies; pair a craft with a beloved book and they are in heaven. (more…)
