Trend- Mountain Murals

About 12 or so months ago I had a sample range made up with some little mountains on it..originally inspired by a quilt I made for my friends’ baby named Everest.

Well time flies by and I was digging around recently and found it and I thought YES LETS DO THIS!! (Watch out for updates on this )….. So then I jumped onto Pinterest and went to my Mountain Nursery board for all things mountain inspired and have discovered that this trend has really started to explode.  Particularly the mountain mural.

So lets check a few out..

The detail in this intricate layered mountain scene is amazing as is the layering of the cool colours from dark to light. It really gives the wall a fantastic level of depth.

And here is another similar one.

The blanket, sheepskin rug and the macrame wall decor though all white create interest due to their textural elements.  This is something we will look at again soon as it is important to use pattern and texture in monochromatic (one colour) spaces.

All the pattern in the wall creates enough interest allowing them to keep the rest of the space very simple.

Well, you might be thinking that these two are way out of your league..and I wouldn’t suggest trying them unless you are quite creative or handy with a brush.  But all’s not lost..lets have a look at some simpler options.

Isn’t this a sweet picture too, and I do love the mustard yellow of the patterned rug and the sun giving the room some life.  The parents wanted an adventurer / mountaineering theme but have managed to keep it subtle by using  the wall as the main feature.

The more I look I see a real crossover from the teepee trend which is coming more from the Aztec American Indian inspired looks and the camping/ adventurer vibe which I think is relates back to parents wanting their children to experience the outdoors in this increasingly digital age.

And here is another more simple mountain style.  If you wanted to make an even stronger statement you could do them in black. Really let your imagination go wild and get out that tape and paint away.

I remember when I had Campbell that trees were the thing to have in your nursery and they were a lot harder to do yourself so I really think most of you would be able to give these mountains a go.

If you are still not sure about painting or maybe you are renting,  don’t worry you can use some stickers or create a mountain design from washi tape.

I’ve pinned so many great ideas for you and links to where you can get them as well as some DIY help, all on my Mountain Nursery pinterest board.

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
