Rocket Boy Nursery

As you know I will be keeping my etsy shop open over my break to allow purchases of the ready to ship items I have listed.  Its fully stocked of items ready to go including surf designs, geometrics, clouds and elephants.

One such item which I think I have failed to share with you previously are the two rocket quilts I have recently made featuring the cool prints from Birch organic fabrics.  One has the felt rocket appliqué and the other is plain patchwork with a vibrant yellow back. The little print has planets, rocket ships and robots on it which I know a lot of you are interested in.  And i do love the aqua, grey and yellow colour combination.

A special baby nursery..woodland look

A dear friend of mine just celebrated their baby shower and we had a gorgeous tea party with amazing cakes all whipped up by the hostess and her clever sister.   Summa is a beautiful girl both inside and out and has wanted to be a mum for such a long time, so when the time finally came I was so excited for her.
Just look at her..have you seen a more glowing yummy mummy??

Of course I was very excited to be able to make up a special design quilt for her as a special gift. After much changing of minds summa decided on a woodland theme and painted her very own tree mural. The little shelves on the branches house some cute little parrots and bird houses and will be sure to be filled very soon when the bub of honour arrives.

This aqua, teal, grey scheme is a very contemporary choice and it her quilt incorporates these themes even down to the individual tree appliqués and the tree fabric.

It is possible to make up this little tree motif in other colour combinations and I do currently have the organic tree fabric in grey and yellow. Feel free to email me at nicolenicol@bigpond.com if you have any enquiries…or just comment too i guess..

Friday Favourite…a tale of a pirate bunny meeting his little owner

When I woke up this morning wondering what would be my favourite thing to mention today.   I was thinking about how nice it was to meet one of my little customers and his lovely mum Michelle in person yesterday when they came to collect his little pirate bunny quilt from me at work.  I love chatting online with clients but its not often that I have local clients that I get to meet in person, and it has only happened on only a handful of occasions but I really enjoy it.

I have mentioned that this pirate bunny style is a current favourite of mine and it is now off to darling little Boyces’ nursery where I hope it will give many years of cuddles.

I also decided to put together a few items to create a bit of a nursery mood board  that could look great in Boyces’ pirate nursery or maybe you have been thinking of creating a bit of a pirate theme.

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.
