Sunday Shop: Perfect Prints

I haven’t really shouted much about it, but you may have spotted the Shop section of the blog (in fact, I know some of you have because I have seen the stats!). In here, you’ll find some of my top kids’ room picks, and best of all you can buy them directly from the site, without having to go off to each retailer directly. In case you’re wondering how this works, it’s thanks to a nifty little plugin called Showroom. It doesn’t cost you anything extra but I do get a (teeny) percentage from each sale made through this site.

Anyway, as it’s Sunday, also known in my house as Online Shopping Day, I thought it might be fun to do a little round up post of my favourite prints available through my store.

I’m slightly obsessed with prints! I have loads up in my office at home – I’ve tried to create a gallery wall of sorts, and I usually prefer them to ‘proper’ artwork. I do remember going a bit mad in my old flat with what my friend Amy calls ‘bossy art’ – graphic posters telling you to smile more often etc etc. I’ve moved on from the slogans though, and am now loving anything and everything simple, clear and striking. And there’s just so much wonderful artwork for children’s rooms out there…

Right, that’s enough from me. A picture speaks a thousand words and all that… Onto the shopping – enjoy – and do let me know which is your favourite! Mine is the very lovely Rifle Paper Co’s Noah’s Ark print, as pictured above…

Children’s clothes hangers

A bit of a personal-inspired post today, as it’s something I’ve been on the hunt for myself lately. Up until Daph turned about one, I kept most of her outfits folded up in a drawer, rather than hung in…

As you may know, the thing I enjoy most about being a design journalist is meeting and hearing from designers themselves. The effort of designing and producing something from scratch is not for the faint-hearted, and I’m always impressed to…

First up – Happy Easter weekend everyone! Hope yours is suitably chocolate-filled. I tried to think of an Easter-themed post to put up today –  I really tried, then wondered why I was wasting three hours of my evening…

Polly bed by Incy Interiors

It’s taken me a while to track down this bed. I first spotted it on Pinterest, on one of my many trawls through the wonderful world of kids’ rooms, and fell in love. But it’s by an Australian brand…

I have this problem with wallpaper. I love it. I love all of it (mostly). But I find it really hard to live with patterns for a long time. When we moved into this house, there were feature walls…

Play kitchens

When I was a kid, all I ever wanted was a play kitchen. I have no idea now why I didn’t get one (I was totally spoilt so I’m sure my parents weren’t being mean) but I didn’t (perhaps…
