...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Ashley – the first entry! – whose favorite kid-friendly item in her home is the living room pouf she recently made for her nephew to lay on.

I was first introduced to Alexandra Grenham’s amazing style via an Apartment Therapy house tour.

AJmain2

Her Boston home is full of kid-friendly furnishings and playful accessories but is far from childish. It’s a stylish space suitable for both kids and adults. Perfect for a young family of four. Alexandra is the creative director and buyer for Erie Drive, an online boutique featuring a blended collection of fun, practical and eclectic gifts. So when Alexandra contacted me a few weeks ago about a possible giveaway and linked to her AT tour, I had two immediate thoughts. First “Hey, I know that house!” and second “Yes! I would love to feature Erie Drive for a giveaway.”

Which brings me to this week’s giveaway. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite items available through Erie Drive. I would be happy to have any of these pieces in my home.

Would you like the chance to win one of these items? See below for entry details.

PRIZE: one item of choice from the curated collection shown above {Of note – The wooden alarm dock is not compatible with the iPhone 5 but Erie Drive does offer another version for the iPhone 5. The flour sack towel set includes both towels shown.}

RULES: You must be at least 18 years old and have a shipping address {no P.O. boxes please} within the U.S. to enter. One entry per email address.

TO ENTER: “Like” Erie Drive on facebook then leave a comment on this post proclaiming “DRIVE ME!”

DEADLINE: Enter before Friday, April 19th at noon EST. One random winner will be announced later that same day.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: Since we’re talking family-friendly style today…what is your favorite kid-friendly item in your house? A soft ottoman that does double duty as a coffee table? A bench that opens to reveal toy storage? I’ll go first. A few months back I bought a pair of floor poufs from West Elm. I’d been eyeing them for nearly a year but couldn’t pull the trigger…until they went on sale. I’m so glad I did! My kids drag the poufs all around the house and they look great in every room. In the boys’ bedroom, they are wrestled and jumped on. In the living room, they are the perfect lounge spot for reading or watching TV. Mabrey loves pulling to stand and climbing on top of them. HH and I like to prop our feet up on them at night after the kids are in bed. I love them!

BUT, WAIT!, THERE’S MORE: House*Tweaking readers can score 20% off one Erie Drive purchase now through May 15th by entering the discount code “TWEAKING20″ at checkout.

Thanks Alexandra!

I love our ottoman. We got it maybe 9 months ago to replace a so-so coffee table, and I LOVE it! It was on clearance for $50 at Meijer, and I’ve since seen the fabric it’s upholstered in for more than $20/yard. Hooray for surprise designer pieces at big stores :-)

We don’t have kids yet, so don’t have many kid friendly options IN the house, but the best part about our house when kids visit is being within walking distance to the National Zoo in DC!

The best kid friendly thing about our house has to be the mancave/kids room. It has plenty of space for the kids and my husband to get into trouble.

Hmm, no kiddies here yet, but we live in a big city, right across the street from a big park and lots of kid friendly activities in our neighborhood.

Our most family-friendly thing is probably the most expensive thing we own–our C&B sectional. Everything wipes off of it with only a wet cloth, even ballpoint pen!

15.April.2013

DRIVE ME! and my favorite kid friendly item in my house is a white leather $2.00 ottoman, circa 1950, found at a yard sale. and in perfect condition. my grandkids roll it, sit on it, and lay across it. it’s a family fav!!!

reply )

15.April.2013

DRIVE ME! My favorite is a storage footstool. It’s so much easier to just grab everything on the floor before guests come and just tuck it away in the stool and it doesn’t have to be put away. It even has some nailhead detail, I love it!

reply )

15.April.2013

DRIVE ME! We have low pile rugs – they’re easier to clean than say a flokati rug. More stain resistant too.

reply )

15.April.2013

DRIVE ME! No kid-friendly (well, specifically) furniture in my house, but probably the living room rug, as it is dog-friendly.

15.April.2013

DRIVE ME! I don’t have kids, but I do have an upholstered leather ottoman that I think will be very forgiving to future kiddo’s heads :-)

reply )

15.April.2013

Drive me! For me, making my home kid-friendly is more about *how* I’m using what I already own. For example, in our kitchen, the bottom cupboards and drawers are filled with plastic cups, bowls, plates etc for the kids. In the family room, the bottom shelves of the bookshelf are devoted to kids’ books… Just little things that make our kids more independent and feel like they have a place in the whole house, not just their rooms.

15.April.2013

DRIVE ME PLEASE! No kid things here.

I have three kids ranging from 5-13. I find that having a leather couch to be a great kid friendly buy. When we were finally ready for a grown up couch 11 years ago we toyed with all sorts of fabrics. In the end we bought leather and I am so happy we did. You can wipe off spills and nothing has stained it. That’s 11 years of no stains, no tears…I find that impressive. I don’t feel we skimped on our style, comfort, or quality.

15.April.2013

DRIVE MEEE!!!!!!!
Our best design element for our kids/ our family sanity are the doors on our bookcases’ lower halves. they can keep all their toys in the main room where they like to play- and at night after they’re asleep- it still looks ‘grown up’ and NOT like a toy store!!!
Well-THOSE and all my throw pillows … which become forts, weapons, and create perfect nap spots anywhere. :D

15.April.2013

DRIVE ME!
We don’t have kids yet (next year maybe?!?!) but plenty of our furniture and decor is kid friendly already. I think my favorite thing is that we have blankets everywhere! We have throw blankets on the couches and a plethora of blankets on the beds. I know as a kid it was nice to just be able to bundle up wherever you were.

Our upholstered platform bed is pretty kid-friendly since there are no sharp edges and it’s pretty low. My toddler loves climbing all over it and taking “pretend” naps there–she even fake snores!

I was coveting the raspberry jenny lind-style bed from land of nod for my little one, but I ended up thrifting a sorta battered cherry wood one instead. I love the patina and the warm woodiness in her room, and I don’t care what she does to it-so happy I decided to go that route instead!

reply )

15.April.2013

Drive me. Just don’t pick me. I never win anything and I don’t want to break my streak. :)

I have a pouf now too. It’s been on my Christmas List for a few years and my son got it for me this year! I was so excited. Now when my nieces and nephew come over they fight over it. My niece wanted to use it instead of a dining room chair to eat Christmas brunch. :) Kids are all about lolling around on furniture and a pouf just screams, “Loll on me already!!”

Also – it’s not furniture but – when we did our addition I had the builders put in blocking down very low in the mudroom (best room a house can have!) so I could put up nifty hooks for my nieces’ and nephew’s tiny coats. I wanted them to be able to hang their own coats even when they were very little. A heart, a moon and a star shaped hooks. :) They still use them now even though the kids are getting longer and so are their coats. I love those hooks. I love those kids even more. :)

Our kid friendly furniture piece, adult friendly too, is an old Brunswick Radiola that was gutted and now serves as an entertainment cabinet for our tv and dvd player. The great part about it is when you close the doors there is no appearance of a television set in our home.

Best kid (and pet) friendly move was switching from fabric sofas to leather…so much easier to wipe clean, and no more pet hair embedded into the upholstery!

We love our Ikea Expedit shelves for toy storage.

reply )

15.April.2013

DRIVE ME! Love that Erie style! The most kid-friendly item would be our big old comfy reading chair that we inherited from good friends who moved away. It’s old, rather ugly and needs a good cleaning or re-covering, but it’s THE spot to curl up in and read a book, if you’re big or little. Even our cat favors it for naps.

No kids, so how about dog-friendly stuff? I took an old floor pillow from IKEA and made a cute pillow case out of a pink hounds tooth print. For a year, the dog didn’t touch it, but the cats adored it. Eventually, the dog came around to it and will frequently drag the pillow (which is about five times her size) from the living room into the kitchen so she can sleep comfortably in a sun spot!

16.April.2013

DRIVE ME! We don’t have any kids yet, but if your large storage ottoman is still around when we decide to, that might be nice for storing toys, blankets and other items.

reply )

16.April.2013

DRIVE ME!!! Their stuff is so adorable! My favorite kid friendly item would have to be our giant Eddie Bauer throw pillows in the living room. When we have company, they can be thrown on the floor for the kiddos to sit on…when its just us, they look classy thrown on our couch or in the corner.

reply )

16.April.2013

Drive me! We have a window seat that doubles as dining room seating. It’s great for lying down when you don’t want to sit appropriately at the table or for climbing on to look out the window. Of course, then you have to smudge your fingerprints all over the glass. It’s also wonderful to jump off. Does that count as “kid friendly”?

reply )

16.April.2013

DRIVE ME!

Well, I don’t really have many kid friendly items in my house because nobody brings kids over so I am not that concerned about it… However, whenever we do have the occasional kiddo over, they are enamored with our cat, so I guess he is my favorite. He keeps them entertained and is so nice with them.

reply )

16.April.2013

DRIVE ME! We have baskets in every.single.room to hide all of our daughter’s toys when we have company over. She also LOVES pulling everything out of these baskets and scattering them all over the house. :)

16.April.2013

DRIVE ME!

Most – if not all – of the furnishings in our house are kid friendly because my youngest two boys are (adorable) little monsters! Most things have a vintage/industrial look about them and are super sturdy and Sam & Jack proof. :) If I had to pick a favorite, it would be our dining room table made of stainless steel pipes and a table top made from reclaimed bleachers from a local high school. :)

reply )

16.April.2013

DRIVE ME! I love our storage ottoman that we use as a coffee table. LO has just started pulling up & discovered yesterday that she can chew on it as well…not so sure I like that chewing part, but it’s fairly soft & has storage & looks pretty good all at the same time

Drive Me! Nothing like take a ride in the big brown patina’d sofa… like a giant catchers mitt. My two boys seem to think its cool…

DRIVE ME! We purchased some woven felt baskets for baby storage when our wee one was born. We’ve found that they’re excellent for storing his toys while he’s in his crawling phase – he can easily pull on the sides to get toys out. Plus, they look nice stored in our living room.

I hope I still can enter. I no longer have a facebook account (I know, what century do I live in? I decided it was a giant time suck and deactivated it.)

Oh, and my house is not kid friendly at all from pointy corners to grumpy dogs. Danger at every turn.

Fabric storage bins have been the best thing EVER! I keep one at the bottom of the steps to put toys, shoes, etc. from our daughter in it to take back up to her room. She has a habit of leaving things all over the house. :)

My favorite kid friendly piece is using a dresser for the entertainment center. We can keep all the toys accessible, but they’re hidden

DRIVE ME! Wowza–how come I didn’t know about this place sooner??! In major lust.

The bunnies are pretty kid-friendly. Except when kid fingers are mistaken for food, and crying ensues.

Wicker storage bins that allow me to clean up quickly and hide the mess of toys that take over my living room on a daily basis are pretty much the only reason we can have people over at a moment’s notice.

No kiddos at our house, so I’m not sure we own any kid friendly items. I will say that our leather sectional is dog friendly! :-)

I love Alexandra’s style also.
Favorite family friendly item…with 3 boys ages 6-months to 1st grade, I have to say that my favorite item is an inexpensive Target futon that I put in the baby’s room. I took off the back and just lined it with pillows against the wall to make a pseudo daybed/couch and the boys are always using the pillows for forts, targets, napping, and cozy book reading. It wasn’t planned to stay long, but I think it’s great having a couch in the baby’s room where we all can get together.

I’m pregnant with our first. We are currently looking for a new house in our new city of Philadelphia, and I can’t wait to decorate the nursery and think in a baby-friendly way!

Drive ME! No kiddos yet- but having a 20mo old boy stay with us last year for two weeks after Sandy hit we realized that our place is not super kid-friendly, lots of teacups and breakable handmade things.. Although we also realized that our cat had lots of places to hide from him. We built some awesome cat shelves in our window for her, and I think they are much more aesthetically pleasing than those carpeted cat towers.

I have a teenager. So I’m going to say the microfiber sofa – at least I can wipe up all the random ‘It wasn’t me!’ food that ends up there…

We have many nice woven baskets that double as toy storage

no kiddos in my household yet…so i’m guessing that when the time comes, we’ll need to do lots of baby-proofing! right now, i think our soft and low couch and armchairs are some of the most kid-friendly items we have in our house! easy to get in and out of, and cozy too!

I love anything that does double duty. Especially those that hide toys!

My favourite kid friendly item in my house is my dog. He’s a HUGE fan of kids and loves all the love and hugs they hand out.

reply )

18.April.2013

Drive Me! I’d have to say our leather sofas are the most kid friendly. Although they are far from my style (plus they were hand me downs from my parents rec room), they’ve held up pretty well and can be cleaned up pretty easily.

Drive me! Washable couch covers! it feels so clean in the room each time they come out of the wash…which is…often!

I’d say the bookshelf we purchased that we can place baskets on. The baskets make it look clean and put together and no one knows (unless they look inside) that the baskets are stuffed with everything that belongs to our son!

reply )

18.April.2013

drive me!!! I would have to say that I love owning a Bissel rug shampoo-er because our wall-to-wall carpet in the playroom takes a BEATING (and is the place that everyone wants to be on)and I can enjoy the rug even more knowing that cleaning it is a breeze!

Favorite item with kids is currently my ottoman. I replaced our cocktail table about 8 years ago with it, and now that the kids are teens, it’s even better. It serves as a foot stool, a chair, a table, and when the cushion is removed from the base, a floor pillow.
