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.

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…

Green with Envy… Interior Trend

So Emerald was named the Pantone colour of the 2013 … so we’ve had all year to get used to it so how do you feel about it?

I feel like I haven’t seen as much of it as I hoped to.



Most of us feel quite safe decorating with greens like pistachio and olive. But this shade is a little different..more intense.  Is it too bold for you to work into your home?  Your wardrobe? A little dash will do the trick.

I own a few pieces of clothing in this colour and love it. I have been on the lookout for the colour to trickle through from fashion into interiors and although I’ve seen some great uses I haven’t seen it used much in kids rooms or nurseries…yet.

I came across this fantastic scandi style boys room on pinterest and was mesmerised by it.  I just love that brilliant green wardrobe and it’s contrast to the stark white and black.




The raw timber brings some rustic warmth to the room.. I love how they have dipped the feet of the stool in white..blending it into the floor.




And of course the vintage elements like that amazing trunk on castors just makes it. I love the mix of the room but I wonder if it’s just the green that I’m drawn to. Just because it’s something bold and different. Just look at the interesting ways they have incorporated it in, including that half wall.


I will be on the lookout for more green and encourage you to consider it for your boys room, or even for a gender neutral nursery. Rainbow brights that are also fashionable at the moment will fit right in too.
I will be embracing this colour in some of my upcoming ranges so you can be sure to be able to find something for a cool , modern nursery.

These amazing pictures are available on my pinterest board but the full story of the owner and the rest of their home as well as more room pics can be found on the & SUUS blog.
