As a mother of four elementary-aged children, Grace Mitchell knows a thing or two about getting ready for the back-to-school season. On her show One of a Kind, Grace uses vibrant colors and patterns to create spaces that the children always love! With Grace’s fun style in mind, we have selected our favorite back-to-school products that will give your children the extra boost they need to start the school year with confidence!

If you love these spaces that Grace designed for her children as much as we do, then shop the products below to give your children a similar look for the school year!


In many of Grace’s designs, she has incorporated patterns that include flowers. Whether it is through wallpaper, pictures or a backpack, a pattern with flowers is always a good choice!

If you recognize this color green, it is because Grace has used it in some of her spaces on One of a Kind. This backpack is great because it comes in multiple sizes and it can be personalized!


If you are not interested in buying a new backpack every year, just swap out your child’s lunchbox! Check out this retro metal lunchbox for an adorable and durable option.

Looking for a more organized lunchbox option? Avoid the hassle of having to separate your child’s food into bags by buying this bento box. It also comes in an assortment of fun colors!

Grace loves utensils! She once decorated an entire pantry by gluing vintage utensils to the walls. Don't forget to buy a set for your kiddos lunchbox!

How cute are the children’s aprons featured in Grace’s Instagram photo? We’ve found similar aprons at Anthropologie that are great for arts and crafts time at school and at home.


Does anyone remember the blue gingham wallpaper Grace used in one her dining room renovations? This cute apron option is extremely affordable and matches Grace’s style to a tee.


Now this a product that your children will be excited about. This umbrella changes color when it gets wet! Grace always adds vibrant colors to her designs, so add some color to your children’s rain gear as well!


This umbrella also comes in different patterns and colors!


A colored pencil that creates a pattern and is multi-colored? I think Grace would approve! Instead of getting the traditional colored pencils this year, switch it up with this fun option!


Another fun wallpaper that Grace once used included lemons! This lemon patterned notebook will always brighten your child's day.
