Dutch bedding designers Snurk have added a fab woodland themed duvet set to their children’s bedding range, featuring a squirrel and a bunny rabbit. Two furry friends to keep your child company at night. Love it!

I was asked by Living Etc to comment on the trend of house-shaped furniture in kids’ rooms for their January feature on children’s room design. The article highlights current trends in children’s interiors and offers plenty of decoration tips by a host of kids’ design experts. You can read some of it on my press page here.
I’m starting the new year with photos of a soft grey bedroom I designed for a girl called Charlotte. Charlotte didn’t particularly want a new room, thank you very much. But with a new baby brother on the way, it was time to move to a larger room and leave her cosy nursery to him. With a reluctant little girl, I had my work cut out.
To entice Charlotte, we opted for a cosy cupboard bed with doors. This would also scale the space down a little, to help her transition to a larger room. As soon as the bed arrived, Charlotte fell in love and that was that.
Both Charlotte and her mum love pink, but we decided to keep it in check with a soft grey background. A feature wall with tree wallpaper creates a cosy corner and sets the tone for decorative accents.
