Does this image make you happy? c'mon, how can it not? the sweet little soft cushion letters reminding you to be happy. And then there is the cute montage of pictures and my favourite (okay i know i have a lot of favourite things) pathwork quilt.. and then my other favourite, mint cushion with hankerchief love heart. So simple but makes me so happy.
I love designing modern nurseries & bedrooms but it seems that it's always the vintage inspired rooms that melt my heart. It's difficult sourcing & combining vintage items to ensure that they all work together perfectly. This room works wonderfully with the patchwork quilt on the vintage iron bed, the colors - fairy floss pink, mint green and aqua all complementing each other and repeated in the quilt, and my favourite, the chipped paint and broken handles which is a sign of someone else's love being passed on.. and hopefully, on and on.
With so many kid's tables & chairs now available, i have many favourites. This chair is in my top 5. It's a child sized replica of the famous 1970's pony chair that is made from sturdy fibreglass but covered in a textured wool blend. Not only does it meet the kids requirements - colorful and fun but it also meets ours - practical and stylish and there are no agistment fees or carrots required for this pony.
This blog is for Harper. My adorable little friend who is 18 months old (or young). His Dad is a Sailor, so of couse whenever i see a boat i think of Harper. So this bed is for you. I would love you to be able to jump and snuggle into this bed every night. We could hang clouds from your roof & add a blue mat for the sea and you could sail the ocean in your dreams and maybe oneday you could follow your dad's footsteps. I know you're too young to go sailing just now, but this would be a great start.. So c'mon little captain...let's go sailing..
This room is very simple, yet sweet and is perfect for 2 little ones sharing. My favourite item in this room is the hanging lights but i also love the cushions, patchwork quilt and I love the handmade cot valance. This room looks neat and tidy (for now anyway), and although simple, the pattern and colors used still give it a soft, whimsical feel. I am sure your girls wouldn't mind sharing if they had a room like this.
How lovely would it be for your little one to wake up with a rainbow in their room each day? I think this bed head is lovely and it makes me want to sing a rainbow. Red and Yellow, pink and green, purple and orange and blue. I can sing a rainbow.. sing a rainbow too...
With all the 1st birthday parties I am attending, i have cake on the brain (and plenty of honey joys in my tummy). Today I discovered a talented Brisbane based Illustrator, who sells these adorable little paper crafts. Not only are they prefect for birthday parties, but can be also be used as decoration in the children's rooms or as part of their role play kits. I also adore these baby box camera's which will bring out the creative side of your child and would make a great little addition to the birthday lollie bag.
I am lucky enough to have 2 wonderful sisters. I shared a room with my sister Letisha growing up and although i always wanted my own room, we did have lots of fun. I love this photograph being the focus of this room. It's such a beautiful image but also a sweet reminder of how much fun and how special our brothers and sisters are. The only problem my sister and I would of had with such an image was deciding who got to keep it when we moved out of home.. But i am the eldest, so i am sure that would of meant me!
When i was young, much younger, i wanted a gingerbread house. I didn't even like gingerbread but the candy and lollipops looked delicious and I couldn't wait for a midnight snack of iced donuts which i'd take from the windows. Now that i am older, much older, i would prefer a wallpaper house. I love the contrasting colors and patterns and the pot plant as a chimney on the roof..genius idea. Maybe i can incorporate donuts into my wallpaper house, then it would be the perfect home!
We are never too old to play on swings. I love the idea of an indoor swing. I can just hear the laughter of the children now, wanting to get higher and higher and not wanting to come down. Swings remind me of love. When it's good it's amazing and you just don't want to come down, you want to float as high as you can for as long as you can, feeling the butterflies in your tummy as you reach new heights. Maybe this is why we love swings so much as children, they give us the same feeling as falling in love before we even know what love is.
