Childrens bedding in Single bed Quilts

Teepee Singles bed blankets by alphabet monkey

Hi there,

Just wanted to let you know that we have a tiny number of King single quilts available as a limited edition range.

The quilt is pictured on a single bed and is perfect for those moving onto a big bed. They are a very generous size so I could also see them looking great on a double bed too as a throw over.

Colour Trend -Green in Children’s Interiors

Green Interiors trend

I’ve long been a fan of green in boys rooms and so when emerald was announced as the Pantone colour of the Year two years ago I expected to see more of it around.  Well it has been filtering through interior design and now I’m starting to see more and more accents of green added to the monochromatic spaces of kids that we all seem to love.

And I do love it with the mint…so fresh. Are you a fan of green or not so much?  I think it will continue to grow as I’ve noticed another trend which we talk more about another day..and that is cactus.

So we have taken some fresh new shots of our Ashkii Range..I’ve loved how you guys have mixed and matched it all and I’ve loved seeing your photos in Instagram and when you email or Facebook them through to me. It’s awesome!!

Of course there is a lovely dash of the black and white arrow print on the reverse so you can fold it back and change your look.

It’s available in Single and Cot Size as a quilt cover set..so it includes a cover and a pillowcase.  They are quilt covers so you they are great for the warmer weather as you need to put your insert inside.

We also have more of our Little Teepee and Teepee Triangle (shown below) prints back in store in fitted cot sheets and cushion covers but after this lot I think we will be moving onto some new colour combos.  And we are also making it easier for you to add to your collection by offering $20 off when you buy 2 sheets..Just use code : DOUBLEUP at the checkout.  This will be an ongoing offer.

Its great to have patterned sheets on the bed to catch little moments like these chubby legs or when your bub just wakes up and gives out those big smiles. My daughter does this and my son runs in after each nap time to see it. Just grab your phone and take a pic against your super cool sheet and you have an awesome pic just ready to send to your friends and family..yes baby spam them all I say..hehe

Also in case you didn’t realise, we now offer gift vouchers( as pictured below). We can express post out a physical voucher as its always nice to have something to give..even when you have left it to the last minute.  Or if you prefer we can email a digital version which we will create and send after purchase.

Wishing you all a great weekend whatever you are up to…

Campbells Black and White room

Campbells black and white room..bedlinen by Alphabet Monkey

 

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.

Friday Favourite.. World Maps

It’s Friday again….Do you have anything planned for the weekend?

We are off to Sydney for a friends 40th so we will stay over and maybe have a nice brunch by the harbour tomorrow morning.  It will be a nice child free night so we are also making a bit of an anniversary getaway as we celebrated 14 years of marriage this week.  Time flies so fast..in that time we counted one child, three dogs, three houses, eight house moves, three renovations and four overseas adventures…..I look forward to even more adventures ahead with my best friend.

I received a lovely message from the girls at May and Belle who are based down the coast from me at beautiful Ulladulla.  They are loving the new geometrics range. The girls have many prints that they thought would be perfect in little boys rooms and also in your home so I thought I’d share a couple here for my friday favourite.

The use of maps, particularly vintage look maps is a trend that has been going strong in interiors for a while now and show no sign of abating.  They are a great addition to a boys room of any age.

When I see these types of maps in interior pics it does take me back to primary school where we had the big world map and the one of Australia with the timber on the top and bottom.  Do you remember those?

This personalised map is perfect for a nursery..it has a whimsical , vintage vibe that could be used in a more traditional style room with a lot of worn timbers but could also work in a modern style interior with lots of white and colour. What a lovely gift it would make.

And how great is this one where you map out where your family lives all over the world..pretty cool right? It would also be great to map out all the places your child might like to learn about and visit.
