Karl Malte’s bedroom was designed by his mum Marie Willumsen, who is a graphic designer and illustrator – the decorations and illustrations were done by her. Check out the wall mural and customisation of the wall hung storage units. I’m rather in awe of the way she has turned simple pine cabinets into something really special.
Marie’s advice for designing kids’ spaces is to create zones: a playing zone with easy acces to toys in see-through boxes, a sleeping zone, and a ‘relax’ zone, where your child can sit with his iPad or listen to stories. This can be a big swing or a beanbag for example – your child will want to hang out there all the time.

I was interviewed by Kin magazine, an in-store publication from nursery brand Mamas & Papas, about children’s interior design. I really enjoyed enjoyed their questions, Kin put some real thought into them – and the same can be said about the rest of the magazine. You can pick up a free copy at Mamas & Papas in-store, or you can read more about why I design for children, plus lots of tips in the online magazine here.
PS: the cover of issue no.4 is a Liberty print to signal the collaboration between Mamas & Papas and Liberty London which launches in-store on 7th September: gorgeous Liberty prints galore on children’s clothing and interiors accessories!
