The latest playroom I can’t WAIT to install! We’ve made a few edits since the concept board was presented, and it’s going to be amazing. The furnishings are slowly trickling in, and I am getting so excited! Check out my “stories” for some of the sources! {I can’t give them ALL away, but how about a little taste?!}

The Playroom Purge Challenge is now over, and our kids’ play spaces are ship-shape + ready for good, old fashioned PLAY {+ mucking about with art!} During the challenge, we made our own labels to help with organization. Do you use labels in your child’s play space or learning environment? Photo @b2photography .

If you’re like me and don’t have the ❤️ to throw away/recycle all the holiday photo cards, why not turn them into STORYTELLING puppets? .
I’m sharing a few ideas for ways to upcycle {and learn with} these treasures on the blog today. {Link in profile 👆🏻@brillante.design}.

A child care centre I recently worked with was forbidden to hang anything on the wall, due to 🔥regulations. {😕} So we planted these collaborative these “texture trees” to bring colour + interest to the space.
It was such a fun + cooperative, and helped brighten the space.
Are you interested in learning about more classroom/child care decor projects? {I really dislike the word decor, is there a better word?? 😛}.

Hello! I figured it was high time to {re}introduce myself! Warning: It's a LONG post. So long, it concludes in the comments.📝Grab🍷. My name is Alana and I am a mom of 3 young girls, and wife to my loving husband Chris.

Before Motherhood, I was a teacher for ten years in Winnipeg’s Inner City.
The story of @brillante.design begins the year I inherited a new Kindergarten classroom. The only room available in the school was a dingy-old former staffroom. Remember the days when teachers were allowed to🚬in the staffroom? That room was like a time capsule of that era: wood paneling, faded, smoke-infused linoleum flooring, and tiny windows covered with bars. It was the dullest and most depressing room in the entire building.

The ugly room presented a clear challenge. But I was determined to make the space beautiful + inspiring for my students - many of whom were underprivileged and faced huge life obstacles. I wanted to create an inviting + safe space for these young kids who were about to embark on the beginning of their educational path, a space where they felt welcomed, and eager to learn.

I sought out donations from around the city: Beanbag chairs, little coffee tables, floor cushions, even beautiful textural rugs were gifted by local businesses. I also DIY'd a LOT. I looked for discounts EVERYWHERE. And finally, after a coat of paint to freshen things up, the room came alive.

My practice was deeply influenced by the teachings of Reggio Emilia, where the environment is considered the Third Teacher. Light, colour, texture and even the selection and presentation of materials, tools and books are all considerations in a Reggio-inspired approach. The arts are explored as languages with which to build on children’s natural curiosities about the world.

Fast forward a few months, and I began to see profound changes. These kids, who were only 2 generations removed from residential schools, were excited to come to school, everyday. Excited to learn. I witnessed firsthand the transformative power of the environment: its power to shape behavior, learning, and attitudes. I believe the special space I created made me a better teacher that year {cont’d in comments}

Today’s theme of the Playroom Purge was “The Curated Toy Shelf,” where we took steps to create + streamline learning zones, and we talked toy rotation. Tomorrow, we get ready to LABEL! .

I will teach you, via FB alive, how to create your own super-simple lovely watercolour labels with your littles! {or if you’re not into DIY, you can download one of the beautiful template labels I will provide tomorrow}
