Brighten Up Your Playroom

abc carpet & home's owl collection!

You’re all about making smart, thoughtful choices for your children.

Add to your list of crowning parental decisions the acquisition of colorful room decor from ABC Carpet & Home’s Owl Collection.

The vibrant line, from play tents to pillows, is crafted from 100 percent cotton in gingham, polka dot, and floral patterns, and is finished with silk embroidery, rickrack, and owl embellishments. Babies will be mesmerized by the gentle glow of wall sconces; older kids will hunker down in magical playhouses that spark the imagination.

Need to turn a bedroom into a play space without adding bulky furniture? Create insta-seating with Indian-inspired owl cushions in saturated pinks and blues — perfect for getting down on their level.

Available at ABC Carpet & Home, 888 Broadway, at 19th Street, mezzanine (212-473-3000 or abchome.com).
