Decorating your children’s rooms? Check out our tips!

Ideas for decorating children's rooms

We’d like to offer you some ideas for decorating children's rooms

 

Whether you are preparing for the arrival of a new member of the family, you are moving home or if you simply want to give a new look to your home, today we would like to offer you some ideas on decorating rooms for little ones.

It is clear that in decoration terms nothing is set on stone and something that is a must for your friend, you would not even consider. For this reason, we would merely like  to offer you some suggestions to bear in mind and which may a good starting point if you’re not sure how to get going.

Up to what age should you decorate children’s rooms?

The first thing that you should keep in mind is that it is your child's room and not yours, as they are sure to remind you on more than one occasion, so don't forget it;) What are we trying to say here? Your kids will spend a great amount time in their rooms so it’s very important that you create a space that they feel is their own and in which they feel really comfortable. When they are no longer babies, they start to know what colours and patterns they like most, and the finishing touches that they want to be included in the decoration of their rooms. In addition to comfort, another reason to take their opinions into account is that if you like their rooms, they will take better care of them and keep them clean and tidy.

As they grow up their personalities develop and they start to know what they want and what has no place in their rooms, until they reach the teenage years, when they won’t care less about your opinions on decoration issues. But until that time, there are many ways of creating beautiful rooms for babies or children, which are to your taste and where they will be comfortable. Let's have a look at what aspects you should bear in mind!

Decoration in babies’ rooms

The two keys to decorating rooms for babies are comfort and stimulation of the senses.

All furniture should be designed initially to ensure the comfort of the little one and the parents too. If there is one item that immediately comes to mind when we think of a baby's room, it is the crib. After the first few months, when they usually sleep in your room, it will be time to move the crib to their own room. The most important thing when choosing the place to put it is that there are no dangerous elements within reach, such as the strings of a blind.

In addition, other furniture such as the changing table or the wardrobe should be laid out in such a way that makes your lives easier and so that everything easily accessible for you

As regards stimulating their senses, particularly during the first 6 months, babies are discovering a whole range of new sensations. So it is very important to stimulate their senses with sounds and colours that can be include in the decoration. Although it seems that all they do is eat, sleep and cry, small details like the moment of waking up can be very stimulating. Therefore, we recommend using bright colours in the room and in all its decorative elements. Small details like carousels with light and sound or a small crib mirror will help stimulate their senses.

Tips for decorating children's rooms

The phrase "less is more" should always be kept in mind when decorating your children's rooms. As we have already mentioned, it is very important that they feel really comfortable and if they do not have enough space because there is too much "junk" in their room, they will want to spend less time in that space. What’s more, you should evaluate other aspects such as the following:

Colours: We recommend always using bright colours but not too overpowering, with pastel colours being ideal. This will create a fun, relaxed atmosphere for your children.

Walls: Thanks to the murals and vinyl that have become so fashionable in recent years, walls can be the distinguishing touch when establishing the decoration of a Children’s Room. Following our initial advice, choose designs that you know your kids are going to like and that suit their personality.

Furniture: It is important to have a piece of furniture for each thing, a wardrobe for the clothes, a shoe cupboard for all their Pisamonas Footwear, a toy box, shelves for books ... the organization is key factor in any room, but more so in your children’s rooms, so that they get used from being small to their things being tidy and to everything having its own place.

Layout: It’s important to lay out the space of your children's bedrooms well. If you do not have a playroom, we recommend creating a space inside their room designed for this. The most important thing is that there is very clear separation of the rest area with the bed, from the leisure area, with all their toys. 

Lighting: in children's rooms, it is essential that there is plenty of natural light to favour relaxation in this space.

In terms of styles of decoration, it is clear that everyone has their preferences, but this season we are going for a nautical style for children’s rooms, just like in the photo. The shades of blue, the colours of the sea and the sky, with finishing touches of rope and wicker are a winning combination.

We hope that these few tips will be of help to you to create rooms for your kids where they can be comfortable and have fun every day.

Mary Janes for girls: we answer the 15 most frequently asked questions about them!

By Pisamonas 20 April 2017

Mary Janes and Ballet Pumps Pisamonas

Today we bring you a run through of the most frequently asked questions about one of the most famous styles of girls’ shoes. Are you ready? Here we go!

What does the term mean? What are Mary Janes?

They are girls' shoes, similar to ballerina shoes but with a strap that crosses the instep and they have a buckle, velcro or button fastening. One of the most popular types of shoes worn by girls.

Who was Mary Jane?

Its name is due to the unfortunate Queen Mary of the Mercedes of Orleans, popularly known as Mary Jane. She and her cousin Alfonso XII fell in love and were married in 1878, but sadly she fell ill and she died five months later. At the time of her death a popular song as dedicated to the King which spoke of the shoes she wore... and they have kept her name ever since.

What is the difference between Mary Janes and Ballerina shoes?

Ballerina shoes have an open instep, while with Mary Janes it is crossed by a strap or lattice.

Where should I buy Mary Janes online?

The very best online children's shoe store where you can get hold of these popular girls’ shoes is Pisamonas. You will find a wide variety of styles, for babies to women and for girls, with styles for all ages.

Where should I buy Girls’ Mary Janes in Madrid?

Well at Pisamonas too of course! Come to our flagship store in the north ofMadridand you and your daughter can try on your favourite shoes on the spot!

What about in Valencia, Bilbao and Seville?

In 2017 our online children's shoe store has gone a step further and we have arrived in these cities. We have opened new stores so you can have a more personal experience, collect your orders, make enquiries and carry out transactions at the store.

Do you have styles for women too?

Of course! Although this is a very popular type of footwear for girls, lately they have become fashionable with top brands and designers too, and they have produced versions of Mary Janes with heels and for women.

What about for communions?

The communion Mary Janes which are available at our online store are a guaranteed success. They are available in pastel shades, classic white, nude or rosewood pink… In light fabrics, classic leather and the most in trendy material, sparkling with glitter, you will find the style that best matches that beautiful communion dress that you have chosen. Check them out!

What are the differences between summer and winter versions?

The main difference lies in the material used. In summer it is common to wear canvas versions, which are fresh and soft, can be machine washed and will stand up to all your holiday activities. And in winter serratex and suede are more popular to wrap up warm. We have girls’ Mary Janes in leather and in patent leather, as a shoe for more dressed up occasions and for any time of the year.

How to mix and match Mary Janes?

The best combination is with matching tights. At Pisamonas we have more than 30 colours of Cóndor tights to mix and match, which will be a definite hit. They are just perfect with dresses, skirts or trousers. Put the finishing touch your daughter’s look with these shoes and accessories so she will be the envy of the class.

What are T band Mary Janes?

They are the latest fashion! Follow the most up to the minute fashion trend and get a pair of the new T band style Mary Janes. With a strap over the instep and another that fits around the ankle, they are just perfect.

Are they available with reinforced toes?

So your daughter is always on the go, right? If you're tired of scuffed leather on the toes of her shoes from playing in the park because she uses them to brake when riding her bike, we have the answer! Try out our style of Mary Janes with reinforced toe cap, just so practical for the Summer.

Which shoes should I choose for a Christening?

If you have had a baby girl and are getting ready for her Christening, she will look just perfect with our Mary Janes without soles, or rather with very soft soles. Perfect shoes for pre-toddlers, they are just so soft and elegant!

Which are the most frequently used materials?

They are available in patent leather, velvet, canvas, towelling for home wear and leather for more formal occasions. They also come in linen which is ideal for Spring and suede, perfect for the Autumn.

Are they worn outside Spain?

Yes, of course they are! Since Christian Louboutin, Prada and Yves Saint Laurent designed their own Mary Janes and Sarah Jessica Parker sighed over the Manolo Blahnik version in Sex and the City, this type of shoe has become a fashion icon which is recognised around the world.

So have your daughters got theirs yet?

Christenings, first communions and weddings have landed at Pisamonas!

By Pisamonas 1 March 2017

2017 Ceremonies Collection

The 2017 Ceremonies Collection is full of style and novelties

March has just arrived and with it one of our favourite times of the year, the wedding, christening and first communion season! Who doesn’t like these special events which seem to make everything brighter and merrier for a day? Behind them lie months of preparation during which, each detail is taken care of so that everything is perfect. At Pisamonas we know that now is the time to choose one of those details: the shoes. Is your son or daughter receiving their first communion this year and needs adequate shoes? Do you have one or more weddings and you are taking your children with you and you don’t know what they are going to wear? Are you baptising your little one and don’t know what shoes they should wear? The 2017 Ceremonies Footwear is exactly what you need!

Communion shoes

Let’s start with the First Communion shoes. By now you probably already have the dress or suit your daughter or son will be wearing on such an important day. Now you can choose the shoes that best suit the outfit.

Whether it’s for boys or girls, the tendency is to go for the full classical look; but there are those who prefer a more original outfit, and those who want to combine both.

Communion Shoes for Girls

White has always been and will always be the reference colour for girls’ classical communion shoes. Classical ballet pumps and Mary Janes now have some patent leather detail, ankle straps with crystals or crossed straps that make them look a little different while keeping that classical look.

If we want a look halfway between classical and modern, we can just add a touch of colour by wearing shoes in a different shade to that of the classical dress. Beige, light grey and the different hues of pink are the trend in this case. And for a more original look, there’s nothing better than wearing an amazing dress with a ceremony shoe design which is like no other. In the 2017 Communion collection for girls at Pisamonas, pink shoes and those with a metallic, glitter, linen or patent leather textures are the rage right now. 

The situation is similar for the 2017 Communion shoes for boys where styles and colour blend into each other. Many mums still prefer black moccasins because they can be worn on other occasions too. Likewise, navy blue, tan, beige or grey moccasins, with an added bow or tassels are the trend and very easy to adapt to a look for other occasions.

2017 Communion Shoes for Children

Besides moccasins, bluchers are another preferred option for communions. Along with the classical suede design, this season you can find shoes in canvas with a rope sole for a more casual and fresh look.

Boy shoes for weddings

One of the advantages of choosing a different and original style for communion shoes 2016 is that you can use them on other special occasions such as weddings.

So if your son is receiving his first communion and you have been invited to one or more weddings this year, you’ll be able to use his communion shoes again. One of the advantages of the colours we have for this season, both for girls and boys, is that they are very easy to match. Blucher shoes for boys or the ballet pumps for girls are surely a winning choice.

Communion Bluchers for Boys

Christening shoes

The last of the big events for this season are christenings. If we are invited to attend as guests then, just like with weddings, we can use communion shoes and our children will be looking great again!

Ceremonies Shoes

If your child is being baptised, then at Pisamonas you can also find different T-bar shoes and Mary Janes for babies. White is once again the go-to colour for christening shoes for boys and girls, but you can also choose from other colours such as baby blue, light pink and light grey.

Now that you’ve seen all these ideas for your children’s ceremony shoes, do you know which ones you’ll choose for each occasion?

Throw your own fancy dress party for your kids!

By Pisamonas 23 February 2017

Throw your own fancy dress party for your kids!

Tips for children's parties with original costumes

Carnival, carnival ... carnival, I love you! If you are reading this first sentence and humming this famous tune, you'll love this blog post. And not just you. Once you're ready, if you decide to go ahead with it, your children will love it too. Why’s that? Well, here we offer some tips on throwing a kids fancy dress party.

Although beforehand it may seem simple, it’s very important to take care every detail in your organization if you don’t want it to be the case that nobody turn ups next time you hold a party for your kids’ friends.

7 things not to forget for your children’s fancy dress party

  • Invitations: the first thing you have to about think is: What sort of design would I like? Who am I going to invite? What details should I include in them? These are some of the things you should think about when getting your invitations ready. As for the number of people you invite or the design, we’ll leave that up to you, but don’t forget to mention that it is a fancy dress party and what the theme this, if there is one.
  • Games or activities: it’s not enough just to throw a party, the essential thing that the children have fun and are entertained. To make sure of this we suggest you organise a range of different of activities, depending on the kid's ages and the space you have available. You can organize anything from quizzes to mime, where they have to imitate a character and the others have to guess who it is, or other activities such as face painting, dancing or obstacle races.
  • Food: just like for any children’s’ party you hold, the food is really important. Of course, for children it’s best not to over-complicated things and simply go for sandwiches, muffins and cake to eat and juices and smoothies to drink. Of course, bear in mind if any of the children have food allergies before choosing the party food.
  • Fancy dress: However obvious it may seem, when you hold a fancy dress party, there may always be someone who didn’t realise and has brought their child without a costume. But there’s no need to panic!  As good organizer, you should have some hats, bow ties, wigs and necklaces just in case. Having children, you it won’t be difficult to find some of these items around the house. If you’re not sure what costume to choose for your children, in this blog and we already gave you some great ideas for Carnival costumes to give you some inspiration.
  • Decor: like costumes, decorations are fundamental. You can choose to make them yourself or buy them, depending on the time you have and how imaginative you are feeling at the time of organizing the party. The most important thing is that there is lots and lots of colour.
  • Competitions: No costume party is worth its salt that does not have a competition. Of course, we must bear in mind that children are involved, so is it not a good idea to promote over-competitiveness. Therefore, we propose giving different types of prizes for the most original, funniest, most elegant or most colourful fancy dress. The most important thing is that all children get a prize.
  • Space: the place where you hold your party is also important and you have to have enough room so that all the children can play without falling over each other and space for the food and decorations. If you don’t have a large enough room, you can always rent a hall. There are more and more places designed to hold children's parties, which you can hire relatively cheaply.

The advantages of organizing your own fancy dress party

A fancy dress party is probably one of the most successful types of children’s party, because there is so much room for variety. For this reason alone it’s worth holding one. And this sort of party has many more advantages. Shall we tell you what they are?

First, it’s a great opportunity for children to get together outside of school. It will help them get to know each other better and learn to interact in a different environment than the one they are accustomed to.

Furthermore, it is a unique opportunity to get more use out of fancy dress costumes. Your kids probably have a lot of costumes that they have only used once, so throwing your own party is a good way to use them again. And finally, children love them! Do you need any more reasons?

Once you've finished all the preparations for your fancy dress party, don’t forget the most important thing: choosing your children's costumes. Whatever the fancy dress, we suggest finishing it off with children's shoes from Pisamonas.

Get the British look for your children

Fashion Trends for Kids

One of the fashion trends that never die…

We are all aware that fashion is constantly changing, and last year’s latest trends might be out of fashion this season, and will perhaps come back to the catwalk in 5 years’ time. However, there are some fashion trends that are always in fashion whether they are more or less relevant during a specific season.

The British style is one of these trends that never die. Whether it’s on the catwalk for the season or not, it is a trend that is always seen on the street, especially during autumn and winter. Would you like to know what the key for this look is and how to get your children looking very British?

Clothes and shoes which are essential to get this fashionable look

Getting that British look is easier than it seems and you can probably do it with some of the clothes you already have in your wardrobe. This style is simple, plain and elegant.

Let’s start by getting our children warm with the trench coat, one of the most typical pieces of this style. It is perfect for spring and autumn and suits all ages. It will be your go-to piece of clothing and the icing on that British look.

And what can we wear with the trench coat? Shirts, on their own or combined with a V-neck jumper, will be a winning choice. Shorts, worn with woollen tights or long socks in autumn and winter and with bare legs in spring and summer are a must for this look.

Don’t you already have most of these things at home? Now, what about children’s footwear? This is what we specialise in! Oxford shoes or bluchers are without a doubt the stars here. Oxfords have become a basic essential design in everyone’s wardrobe, and for children and adults alike. Not only to get the British look, but also for any other look. 

Children Outfits

But this is not the only shoe that can look good with this style. We mustn’t forget about classic English shoes when choosing children’s outfits. The ideal option for girls is the classical ballet pump in austere colours which are characteristic of this style.

Colours and patterns typical of the British style

Now that we know the basics of this fashion trend, let’s move onto the details. What are the most typical colours of the British style? Or instead of colour let’s talk patterns. Plaid and argyle patterns are typical of this look.

We said that shirts are basic for this trend; well plaid shirts are definitely the stars of this look. We can also use plaid skirts and dresses for girls. But if you’re wearing a plaid skirt, make sure that you combine it with plain clothes like a white shirt or woollen tights for girls in only one colour.

If your little ones don’t own plaid clothes, it’s not a problem. Remember that simplicity is the key of the British style so you can always resort to its most classical colours like blue, red, green, grey and earth tones.

Children can also be fashionable wearing the British style

When we think of our children’s outfit, comfort is always a priority. And that’s precisely one of the advantages of this trend, our children will be really comfortable and in fashion with not much effort at all. You’ve seen how easy it is to put together this fashion trend, so you won’t have to spend too long thinking what matches what.

Another advantage is that the style is ideal for both boys and girls since it’s a unisex look. And the same applies to adults; both dads and mums will be able to follow this trend.

The British style means you’ll look classic with a natural elegance. Perfect for when you want your children to dress up without overdoing it.
