Colour Trend -Green in Children’s Interiors

Ashkii Quilt cover by www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

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…

Brave Arrow Nursery

brave moodboard ..new range by alphabet monkey.com.au

I just wanted to do an update on the Brave Arrow Indian nursery range.  It has been a very popular design..probably because of the current trend for black and white nurseries as well as it’s simplicity.

Ashkii /Brave SS14/15 by Alphabet Monkey www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

Our quilt is back in stock as pictured here..black on the front with white with black arrows on the back.  The Arrow cushion and the sheet are expected to be back in stock this month sometime.

And in other news I am testing samples in grey and white too so I’m hoping to add those to the Arrow range in the next few months.

Below is a sample of a cot sized quilt cover which we will also have arriving soon.  Perfect for that stage between a cot quilt and moving into a big bed.  Enables you to pop an insert inside for the cooler weather.

And like our Single bed quilt cover it is also reversible.  this one features the Little Teepee with Tree print on the reverse side. It is piped around all edges and our fabrics are screen printed by hand onto a beautiful soft quality poplin which washes up beautifully.  And best of all the blacks are strong and true and don’t fade after a couple of washes..a problem I had previously found with other fabrics and printers.

And of course our popular Ashkii single bed quilt cover set will be back in stock this month too so we will let you know when it is.  Featuring the black arrow on one side and the modern Teepee Triangle geometric print on the other.

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.

Campbells black and white room www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

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.

Campbells black and white room www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

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.

Campbells black and white room  www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

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.

Photography thanks to Jade Flores Photography.

Little Indian Nursery…

Little Indian nursery by alphabet monkey.com.au. Cool bedding for little boys.

 

Hello again,

Today I have put together a little nursery collage cause I haven’t done one in ages. I’ve mixed up the Ashkii range with some great other nursery products to create the Little Indian Nursery.

You may notice that gorgeous emerald green metal cot  by Incy Interiors featuring front and centre.  It’s the latest colour in their metal range arriving in September.  This only confirms to be that we are definitely yet to see more of this vibrant shade in kids interiors yet.  Emerald was the Pantone colour of the year in 2013 and I was actually surprised that I didn’t see all that much of it around.  Especially in interiors .  But as I predicted it is creeping in more and more this year in both fashion and interiors and I think that as mums tire of black, white and yellow ..they will move onto this fresh colour.

You will find our Ashkii linen available in our online store here.  The good news is that it may be here as early as next week.. a bit earlier than anticipated. We have already had such an overwhelming response to preorders from those of you who don’t want to miss out and we will have them posted off to you as soon as they arrive.

The super cool ‘Wild and Free ‘ print is from our friends at  May and Belle  , I have it in yellow but I’ll have to get the green now.

That gorgeous hand made timber feather mobile is from Etsy at The Red Bird shop

And the super cute paper cutout Teepee wall art is from Piccolo Studio
