Trend Watch- Cactus

cactus trend nursery mood board by www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au


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.

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

Mod Bunny Nursery

With Easter being this weekend, I thought I had better come up with an Easter inspired post.
I haven’t designed a nursery board for a while so I thought I’d create a fun rabbit inspired nursery.   When I looked around for bunny inspiration I  found that most people seemed to use rabbits in very pastel ‘peter rabbitesque’ ( ok, maybe I made that description up) kinds of nurseries.  They are lovely and soft and most suitable for newborns however I wanted to create something bolder.

So that in itself gave me inspiration to create a more modern room that incorporates some very cool pieces.

So what do you think?   With black becoming more and more popular in nurseries I have used it here to create my Mod Bunny Nursery, however just replace the cot with a bed and you also have a great big boys room too.

Can you believe that the bunny in the jar is actually a night light..I think the bunny glows. Love it!

So what do you get up to at Easter?  I must admit I am really just getting into it since last year when Campbells’ absolute delight at discovering eggs in the garden melted all our hearts.

This year I have some Easter craft to do with him, we decorated a little branch tree yesterday  and I have loaded up with Easter eggs for the Easter egg hunt which I look forward to sharing with you.  It’s a great time to just spend together with family
