Oeuf bookshelf for kids 

I think we can all agree that kids toys tend to get a bad rap. This post is about to change all that! Known for their impossibly bright colours and often less-than-subtle design, kids toys can become an eyesore in your living space as they find their way outside the playroom (if you are lucky enough to have one).

But friends, it doesn’t have to be that way. Constantly hiding toys doesn’t have to be the norm. Believe it or not, you’ll find quite a few beautiful pieces for your kids if you look in just the right places. I’m talking toys you’ll actually want to leave out when guests stop over. And toys that blend with your design aesthetic in the most seamless fashion.

Where do you find these unicorn toys, you ask? They’re right here in my roundup sorted by colour to suit every taste and style.

Browse for your favourites, PIN THEM and kiss those toy battles goodbye.

Note to all design-savvy parents: you can never go wrong with natural wood. Whether it’s baby teethers, toddler blocks, or big kid puzzles, wood tones complement any color palette and provide a timeless sense of style. I also love that you can pass these down for generations to come.

I love colour, especially in tones that blend with our own home decor. Strike just the right balance with muted tones like soft pinks, blues, yellows and greens for a look that feels tasteful yet fun.

A favourite for a reason, black is the toy tone that brings a modern touch to any room. Not only will the clean lines of black and white toys add visual interest, but the high contrast combo is particularly great for developing babies.

Nothing adds to a room’s light and airy appearance like white-toned accessories—toys included. Don’t be afraid to hunt around for your little ones’ favorite playtime pieces in their colorless counterpart. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to find white toys add some much-needed calm to chaotic kid spaces.

Cheers to the weekend! The Baker Playroom is completing today and I am so excited to share it! If you want to see the behind the scenes, head over to my stories on Instagram throughout the day!

Today I'm sharing my ultimate dreamy flooring in kids' spaces...white floors! Both daring and unsurprisingly impractical, these are so pretty I only dream of painting my own kids' floors white. What do you think? So gorgeous you must try? Or absolutely absurd? Either way, they are so very PRETTY!

Happy Friday!


The long weekend is nearly here and I can't think of anything better than hangin' with my sweet family all weekend long. While we live an urban life with the beach a block away, I still dream of wild and free days for my kiddos with a backyard tree big enough for a tree house. Totally inspired by these beauties!

1. The most incredible treehouse in the most incredible tree in Tuscany, Italy.

2. A simple and beautiful boho hangout perfect for sunny day dreaming.

4. A slide, a sandbox and a climbing wall make this all-day-fun for little kids.

5. Absolutely unreal!!! Forget about letting the kids have the house; I think I'd take it for myself!

6. Love how amazing this one is while still being achievable. The twirly slide is the perfect accessory.

While our kids enjoy lazy afternoons in their playhouse, I'll be dreaming of a vineyard in Italy with a treehouse overlooking it (#1). Which one is your favourite?

Have a great weekend everyone!
