These mini tree houses by Dutch designers Ontwerpduo make plants look like giant forests! Rosie’s house, Jasmin’s house, Olive’s house and Lily’s house together form Cottage Town, a group of tiny paper constructions that can withstand a shower from the watering can. Ontwerpduo’s designs are often inspired by a child’s perspective. Cottage Town harks back to designer Tineke Beunders’ childhood memories of using houseplants as trees for her barbies. Love it!

Monochrome kids’ rooms are hot news at the moment, and whilst looking for some white accessories I found a lot of sweet things at Zara Home Kids. There’s a sale on right now, which includes some lovely star themed kid’s bedding (duvet set & blanket) and cloud wallpaper that didn’t quite fit in with the monochrome theme. Call to see if your store has items in stock before heading out, or otherwise order them in. And no – this is not a sponsored post!

I recently used this adorable raccoon in pyjamas art print to decorate a nursery (photos this summer!). The print is by Little Hands in Portugal, a company led by illustrators Marta Belo and Leonor Feijó, who specialise in whimsical children’s art prints and wallpaper murals. The prints are available in A3 and custom sizes, and the wallpaper murals can be made to fit your wall. Cute or what?
Della’s room was designed by her mum Sandra, who has a background in interior design and together with Marcus forms the creative duo MiniWilla. They design the playful graphic posters that you can see in Della’s room, and many more. Originally created to decorate their family home, the couple decided to open a shop after requests for the posters poured in from family and friends!
Sandra’s motto for kid’s room design is to have fun, above all.
