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!
I'm in love with the first palette! Ahhhh I need to redesign my whole house around it! I love your orange wall :)

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 2020

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! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  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 toys, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
