Welcome to spring… or autumn..depending on where you are.
Firstly I have this super cute nursery board to share with you. A friend alerted me to this the other week because it includes our Roary the Bear cushion so I headed over the Project Nursery to check it out.
Christy from Belle Studio created this board for her little boy whom she is expecting very soon. She wasn’t sure which way to go with decorating ..loving both the woodland vibe and the monochrome (black and white) trend. Since she was starting with a blank canvas of white she decided to combine the two and came up with the above board.
The strong prints and the black and white is softened by the introduction of the woodland stump. I’ve seen a few nurseries doing this woodland trend and it can sometimes go a bit over the top with wood everywhere ..and then some monochrome nurseries look a bit stark and cold..but this is a clever compromise.
I also really love the colour palette which is a little like a combo I’m thinking of for some new designs next year.
So head over to Project Nursery to find out suppliers of the pictured products..well except Roary the Bear..you can get him right here 🙂
You may have noticed the cactus trend growing as you see the motif popping up all over the place.. kids prints, cushions, clothing. Well its just a natural progression from the Mexican trend which is everywhere in fashion, interiors and even food.
I’ve always been a huge fan of cactus..of the living variety, and I actually still have a couple from the last time aztec and mexicana was all the rage..yes showing my age here.
So i thought I would pop together a bit of an inspiration design board that could be used for a nursery or a big boys room..and I thought our Ashkii pattern and colour way went with it just perfectly.

Hi, today I thought I’d share some pictures of Campbells big boy room. As you can see we managed to just squeeze in his bunk bed behind the door. I like this as it means when you look in his door you don’t see the bed taking over the whole room..as it is pretty tiny.
As you can imagine there is no shortage of bedlinen combos here…Today have mixed up a lot of black and white prints from both of my Storm and Ashkii ranges to keep an on trend monochrome look.
We kept it pretty simple with black, white and yellow.. as we had already installed the yellow retro style light fitting. But as time has gone on we have added more colour..mainly from toys and things..its kind of impossible to keep those things out so you may as well work with it.
Teepee are very popular right now and they are a lot of fun for playing but also for resting and reading a book. Campbell likes to surprise our dog Jasper who sneaks in here to have a little nap. The little cane chair is actually one I had in my own room as a child.
Below is a super simple string line which we can peg up memories.
Mixing up the black and white raindrops and arrows and teepees. This is actually the reverse of the Storm quilt.
Below are the super cute little runners given as a gift when he was born..too cute to part with.
This bunk is a lower than normal bunk. He sleeps up on top now but he was able to sleep on the bottom from when he was about two. Now its a great place to read , play on the iPad etc.
The quilt on the bottom bunk is also the reverse to our Ashkii quilt cover..the one that features the green geometric print on the front. So we can turn it over and mix things up whenever we feel like it.
Hope you enjoyed this little tour of Campbells room..I think this is the tidiest it had been in a long time. I must confess I am one to just close the door and ignore the mess..there are better things to do I say.
You can find our cushions, bunting and bedlinen in our online store here.

I just love this inspiration board from Jacinta at Hide and Sleep Interiors. I especially love that this is something with a bit of a different vibe that would be so great for little boys. Jacinta discusses this upcoming trend on her blog (which by the way is lovely) so check out what she has to say by following the link above.
Trend predictors have been foreseeing a continued interest in weather ( ie cloud trend ) and this trend is part of this. As concern grows over melting polar caps and the future of polar bears this has filtered through as a theme in children’s interior products. As well as continued interest in outdoor activities and hand made products which reflect our longing for the simpler times before this digital age.
I love these whimsical illustrations by Nommu. She has a few like this little ‘Deer Boy’ that will be great for boys.
Another gorgeous and simple print from etsy
Reversible polar bear cushion available here
Or I could really use this cool polar bear organic fabric from Birch fabrics to whip up some bed linen.
