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!
