...did you say no pinks, please?! Hm..ok! - I thought, let's see what I can do..I don't mind a drop of pink here and there and let's face it, it is a lot easier to find accessories for girls in rosy shades, but I got very excited about this project, because it wasn't the direction I would naturally follow. Yet, when I finished I fell in love which shows how much it's worth stepping away from conventional or picking colours maybe a little bit e...Read more
It's here, people. Well almost - nearly time to put those wellie boots on and the super-sized sunglasses.A while ago I was sat in front of our log burner daydreaming about sun, music and outdoors and I came up with an idea for a festival inspired girls room. The light fitting I used is very close to my heart, not only is rattan a bang-on trend right now, but my mum used to be obsessed with anything made out of wicker so I grew up with rattan f...Read more
Do your children suffer from Pottermania? So much better than THAT bright pink pig and the bold coloured dogs when it comes to room decor...And also, the Harry Potter craze isn't just a passing phase, the books have been around and clearly they will be on our shelves so you won't need to redecorate the room after two weeks. While I was browsing for products, I came across such a lovely DIY idea that involves only a few vintage keys, some fishi...Read more
I have a thing for wall hooks..recently purchased some very funny ones for the kids to hang in their bedrooms. While I was searching I came across these wall dots from Muuto (possibly my favourite Scandinavian contemporary designer ) and I just couldn't wait to include them in a hallway plan. Whether you use it for the kids stuff or for your own coats it really doesn't matter, these cool dots will attract the eye first for sure. There was a li...Read more
I have been working on this transformation for so long now.. Who said it is an easy feat to create a room for a young boy?? A room that can grow with him overtime and won't embarrass him when his mates open his door. A room that can serve as a fort and protect him from the outside world, a room that offers privacy when needed from the rest of the household but can be used as a social space for comfy sleepovers and midnight feasts. Starting fro...Read more
...I would so buy that gorgeous cot...and the wallpaper...and the tipi and all the taxidermy and blame it on the hormones. I used to blame my daily intake of two magnums on them and that's it but this time? I would aim big and fill all the credit cards with these incredible nursery stuff because doing those night feeds in style is what we all deserve, high five! I am sure you noticed that I am not in love with this cobalt blue at all. (lie) So...Read more
These lights are not for checking if they are still breathing, to help pretend to be the tooth fairy or father Christmas or deal with any worries...(will collect the best of those too) but these bad boys make bedtime reading possible. Not sure if I could just pick one favourite out of this list, but I have to say the Playmobil figure in a jam jar is a pretty high flyer. Different styles for different budgets, click through the links below to...Read more
It is so much fun to come up with ideas for lads who are truly passionate about something. Sports..gaming..books or travel you name it. I am so excited to see who my 2 year old will become, how his personality will change and what he will be interested in? Will he be a sports fanatic too like his idols next door? Or will he be a bookworm who will never leave his reading nook? These were some of the questions which kept on circulating in my min...Read more
Yesterday, I shared a picture combination for a girls room on my social media and now it is time to reveal the rest of the space. When my little client's mummy got in touch, the room was nearly finished ( she handcrafted gorgeous pastel chevron patterns on the wall, created a lovely clip on picture wall on a string light and bought most of the furniture.. and this is where I come in the picture) but something was missing. Desperately needed so...Read more
That's summer done with then.. ( or wait let's not be so generous and call it a warmer spring) and kids are back to school / preschool.My littlest was lucky enough to start his day at a very special place, in our village preschool. What's so special about it? - I hear you asking.I could sing songs and tell tales all day long about the wonderful staff and to say I am grateful for the love and care they have been given to both of my children- wo...Read more

Would you seriously put a ghetto blaster in a small child's room?? - Oh yes I totally would..! Can't stress enough how important is music for children...to wind them down, to exerciser, to help develop their speech, their moves or just to silly around the kitchen floor whilst waiting for dinner. I use music for all the above and recently kitted out all their rooms with music players so they can control when and what they would like to listen ...Read more
A lovely childhood friend of mine bought her first house a few months ago. It has been such an exciting time for them but also maybe a tiny bit overwhelming ( do you agree Soph?) as she can't help herself popping babies...Working full time, having two small creatures already, carrying one in your belly and moving houses was never going to be easy. Luckily though, she had me!!! Hahaha!!Ok seriously now... we helped her online to design some of ...Read more
Have you thought about re-decorating your kids rooms as a Christmas surprise? Oh watch out! My friend has..Don't get me wrong, it is at least as pricey as buying a lot of junk to play with, but this gift won't end up in the corner after a day or two...instead it will add so much value and fun to the grey winter days the whole family will appreciate. These gorgeous girls actually asked to share a bedroom and have bunk beds. Christmas seemed l...Read more
When do you start prepping for Christmas? Do you always use the same decoration and just extend it a bit each year? For years, when I dragged down (I mean the husband as I ain't going up there!) my decor box from the loft I realised there is nothing actually in it that I would use, but at that point it was too late to act so I said I will buy some new bling next year. And you guessed...always failed! This year my friend, our home won't be ta...Read more
