I am officially a cactus lover and I felt inspired by the nursery designed by Stockholm based designer Maria, owner of Tellkiddo, and that gorgeous cactus wallpaper by Anewall.
We’ve seen cacti decorating living rooms, bedrooms, desks and bookcases, and now they seem to be quite trendy for kids bedrooms too. Although you wouldn’t put a real cactus in a toddler’s room, the big variety of sizes and shapes make cacti a very interesting motif for patterns and other designs.
The green hues of cactus designs in combination with natural rattan furniture and jute accessories achieve a modern and playful look in little people’s bedrooms and playrooms.
What do you think? Like the idea?
I am a sucker for a children’s toy range that bring a modern twist to some traditional classics. So it is no surprise why I am caffeinated by the brand new range fromSuch Great Heights. Aptly named ‘The Nostalgia Collection’ this fresh new gathering of toys takes you on a marvellous trip down memory lane to a time when you yourself were playing wooden toys and dollies on a shag pile rug…
The 5 piece timber toy range has been designed in appreciation of the authentic shapes and superior craftsmanship of toys from simpler times. Contemporary colours and unexpected textures are cleverly woven through the story to bring continuity to this distinctive keepsake collection.
Adding to the nostalgic romance of this collection is the fact that it has been designed by the very clever Such Great Heights and brought to life by an amazing little working group in South Australia.
So, if you are also a sucker for beautifully designed and exquisitely crafted homewares you must head over to the Such Great Heights website here.
I think if I ever move to another career it would have to be something to do with decorating babies and kids rooms. I love putting together inspiration and ideas for how to create a beautiful nursery space or a kiddy space. I am caffeinated by the Scandinavian style and right now I’m really partial to black & white rooms especially with a subtle hint of another colour. For this mood board I’ve added a dash of pink to brighten up the black and white. And you can find some of my favourites that I have introduced in my previous posts like “Mr. Maria Miffy”.
