Once upon a time..my design feature in Tickle the Imagination

The latest edition of online mag Tickle the Imagination is now out and if you havent heard of it ..well you have been missing out! It is designed and created by Tanya Collier over in Western Australia and it truly is a gorgeous read. Each issue has a different theme and focus which keep things really interesting.

I am very excited to share with you my little design spread which is part of the latest issue, a children’s based issue with the fairy tale inspired theme of ‘once upon a time’.
Due to my background in interiors and my current passion of creating boys products I was very excited to come up with something for Tanya. Of course the first things you think of are the princes and princess type of themes and there are plenty of ideas for girls too.

I was toying with a few ideas when I went to see Snow White and the Huntsman at the movies. I rarely get to the movies so it must have been a sign as I had the idea to take the huntsman concept and mix it with hunting and woods inspired products. I know that woodland themes are quite popular but I wanted to give it a stronger feel hence the colour palette. Anyway it was a lot of fun and i also enjoyed seeing the other boards created by two prominent interior designers who specialise in children’s interiors, Nest and Hide and Sleep.
