molly meg kids decor shop londonFor those of you who’ve missed it: Molly Meg has opened its doors in London! Having been one of the first children’s online shops in the UK offering cool kids’ decor brands from all over the world, you can now go and see all that colour live in Islington – a great design shopping destination in its own right.

All the hip brands are there, from my favourites Numero 74 and Nobodinoz, to Lucky Boy Sunday and Blabla Kids. If you’re still looking for a Christmas present for a little one in your life, don’t miss it.

my room: arsène

green and orange boys bedroom arseneThis amazing boy’s bedroom belongs to Arsène who is seven years old. He lives with his mum Isabelle, dad Matthieu and Milk the cat in the South Pigalle area of Paris.

Arsène’s bedroom was designed by his parents, who are architects and interior designers at L’ Atelier d’ Archi and Plugin Studio. Together they take on projects for private as well as commercial clients, offering a full design and project management service – you can take a peek at some of their amazing work here. I really love the colour choices in Arsène’s bedroom: a subtle layering of grey and greens that forms an easy, calm background to offset more colourful possessions. The built-in house bed creates a cosy and protected nook in the room.

Isabelle’s advice for designing kids’ rooms is to use subtle tones rather than lively colours, whether it’s a boy’s or a girl’s room. Dark colours such as green and black work well as a base, then colour can be added through decorative objects and toys.
