My rule for finding art to deck out a kids room is that you should love it so much that you’d happily put it elsewhere in your home; after all when they hit their teens it’ll probably be given right back to you to make room for One Direction posters anyway. As our picks below prove, there are reams of stunning prints that skirt the line between kids and grown ups. PS Did you know it’s a proven theory that looking at art makes you smarter? What better excuse do we need to go shopping…
LA-ite Roxanne Daner is as puppy-obsessed as most kids we know: “I love painting, my dog and painting my dog,” pretty much sums up where her passion lies. Which equals a collection of pup-centric prints that are a dream addition to the walls of little animal lovers.
Brooklyn-based artist Stephanie Graegin reimagines a host of NY scenes – think hedgehogs taking subway rides and bears in speakeasy bars – in his charming color-saturated illustrations.

Printed in San Francisco on watercolor paper using archival ink, this childishly simple seascape will brighten up any room.
