Perk up your child's bedroom with fun canvas art or a print that pops! We've shared some of our fave local stores and artists offering something special...
When it comes to the kids’ bedrooms, we’re always on the lookout for practical-yet-cool space-saving furniture, gorgeous rugs and the ultimate way to store all of that Lego (when we’re not stepping on it and lacerating our feet). But once you’ve achieved bedroom perfection (for the five minutes before the kids trash it again), you’re going to need some finishing touches. We’re talking posters, prints and canvas art and we know exactly where to find them here in Singapore!
Cuckoo Little Lifestyle Store
We literally can’t choose a favourite among the beautiful colours and designs of the Amayadeeme collection (above) available at Cuckoo Little Lifestyle Store. Choosing which print to plump for may well be impossible!

Then, once you’ve confirmed your personalised instructions, sit back and wait for your unique piece of art to roll home. Psst: we also love the height charts, how cute!
