We can see here how inspiration breeds further inspiration, as Amanda’s vision developed from her desire to give her pre-schooler an inspiring and engaging room of his own.
Learn how her design inspiration turned into a fun, creative and successful business idea and find a few edgy design tips for your toddler’s room.
Create A Visibly Engaging Room for Your Pre-Schooler
I was moving my 2 year old out of his nursery and into his “big boy” room and I could not find any artwork for his room that was both stylish and relevent to his very inquisitive mind. So I decided to create some artwork for him on my own. We made it interactive with games and songs that could be done with canvases and I turned the whole idea into a business! My debut line is called Discovering Shapes. Its counterparts for older preschoolers, Discovering Numbers and Discovering the Alphabet, are coming out in January 2012.
This is a photo of the Discovering Shapes Vibrant Edition in my son’s room. It comes in a more feminine color scheme as well.
