Children seem to need privacy and shade or filtered light even more than grown-ups. Light linen curtains and cotton shades together can shadow a room quite well for privacy or a nice nap. If the light tends to be bright, light blocking shades or lined curtains are often needed. We do not recommend Roman shades or any treatment with long cords for small children and find that roller shades and simple curtains are best for their rooms.

The turn of the century was a golden era for children as some of the loveliest illustration were being made for them as charming murals and stencils. Colors were muted and soothing, and bedrooms and playrooms were meant to be retreats, full of toys, books and memories.

Many of our standard appliqué and stencil designs are very suitable for children. We also feel that many of these designs easily transition from newborn and beyond.

Please review at our appliqué designs below. These designs are large enough for appliquéd Arts & Crafts bedding and embroidered pillows as well as curtains.
