Room Tour Office

Next room up on the room tour is my office. I love this space which is good since I spend a lot of time in it.

Before: This room had a lot of work that needed to be done. It had linoleum flooring and ugly plastic baseboards. It must have been a hobby room or something, because it was rough.



Where we're at: This was one of the first rooms we worked on when we moved in since I would need it right away for work. Morgan installed carpet squares over the linoleum, which was an easy and cheap solution for the floors. We painted, installed new baseboards, hung the blinds, and replaced the electrical outlets. I really like how it turned out. The paint turned out a little more orange-orange than our inspiration, but I still really like it.  



What we need: This depends on who you are talking to. Morgan believes the room is done. I think we need a big white shelf for the orange wall. I would also like some sort of orange/gray patterned window covering, but I still haven't found one I like. 

Favorite Part: Well, I love that its my own space that I don't have to share with anyone. But, my favorite part is the Ctrl Alt Del sign I found. It so perfectly fits what I use the space for!

LOVE the punch of color! I had my home office decked out before we had Ethan (i.e. before it got turned into his playroom/tot school room) but now I'm moving into Aaron's home office so we have one joint home office. Right now it's a mess of stuff and neutral (boring) walls that he chose originally when we moved in. I cannot wait to redo this space. Yours looks great - love the Ctrl Alt Delete sign!

Yes your color combination is great. I loved both orange and grey walls. I also run my business and the walls of my office in gray colored but now I must change it and decorate it as your space. At this time I am present in USA with bus tour to niagara falls for some business meetings. After that I must complete it.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2019

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure!

2019 UPDATE: This post has been updated to include a variety of brands and new product finds! Just a reminder that no one child will be interested in all of this or needs all of this. These toys are just here to spark ideas and give you a feeling for some Montessori-friendly options available! 


So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. 


First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created to…

Which Open-Ended Toys are "Worth it?"

As a Montessori parent, I try to provide a mix of materials in our home to engage my kids! That work that will spark joy, concentration, and repetition. It's not always an easy task, as Maria Montessori said, "Life is mysterious...only the choice of life can choose the work that the child truly needs. Therefore, the teacher respects this mysterious process and knows to wait with faith." So, there does sometimes feel like there is a bit of trial and error when it comes to choosing materials that your children need. 

For us, the right balance is easier to find when I spend time deeply observing my children. Watching their interests, sitting on my hands if I have to, letting them struggle a little with things, and letting them get bored. And what I have personally found is that here at home, a combination of open ended materials and more structured work have been the right balance. Open ended toys wouldn't necessarily be found in a Montessori classroom, but they are perf…

A Montessori Approach to Purging Your Toys

Becoming a Montessori family has been life changing in so many ways, most obviously with the amount and type of materials we use in our home. Once you see why having so many toys is a problem, or when you make the decision to move towards Montessori, it can be completely overwhelming. But, taking a Montessori approach to purging your toys is possible! And, it doesn't exactly mean that you have to throw away everything you have and start over with only expensive wooden toys. It will mean taking a hard look at what you have and whether it really fits with Montessori.


One note, however, Montessori is at its core about following your child's own path and respecting your child as a whole person. So, if your child has a toy, lovey, book, or whatever that your child super loves or is super attached to, but it doesn't fit Montessori ideals, don't take it away. Follow your child, that is more Montessori than whether or not you own some specific consumer product.
