Sian Zeng Dinosaur WallpaperSian Zeng’s new Dinosaur wallpaper ticks the right boxes for a child-friendly-but-not-childish accent wall in your dino-crazy toddler’s bedroom. Take a look at the picture above – don’t you love it with that green skirting?

As with Sian’s previous designs, it’s available as regular or magnetic wallpaper. The latter comes with a cast of dino and flycopter magnets that can be moved wherever you like. The wallpaper is available in the following colourways: green yellow (above), grey and green pink.

diy birdhouses

I found this cheerful paper birdhouse diy via my friends at Bambino Goodies the other day and thought it would be a nice one to share with you. The template was provided by Spanish blog Karmuca & Cuquino.

Download, print (scale up or down for different sizes), cut out and stick together. Then decorate with patterned paper and mix it up to your heart’s content with wallpaper, Japanese craft paper or wrapping paper. The wallpaper in the images is from Pip Studio.

Great for a kid’s room, but they would also make cute birth announcements don’t you think? You could add a little name tag under the entrance and send the template pre-papered to your friends and family to announce the arrival of a new addition to the family.

Happy crafting!

wonderlamps for kids’ rooms

29 May, 2013 in children's decor

bloesen toverlamp childrens lightingRemember Dutch lighting designers Hartendief? I wrote about their wonderful range of children’s lighting a while ago. Founder Hylkia got in touch to let me know they have added three new magic designs – and they are lovely! As with the previous lamps,  the lamp changes appearance when the light is switched on at night, revealing a magic scene.

I often find kids’ lighting a bit too themed and overbearing, adding yet another element that draws the eye in rooms that have so much going on already. The beauty of Hartendief’s magic lights is that they are mostly white with a simple motif when they are switched off during the day, and only come to life at night. The perfect solution!

Do you remember your bedroom light? Mine had different forest animals all around it, and I never tired of examining the colours, shapes and story it told. What did yours look like?

Every once in a while a new wallpaper design comes around that makes you go a little bit gooey. Hibou Home‘s new Into the Wild is one of them. Available in two colourways, I just love the stone and white version because it’s so versatile and easy to use in a nursery or woodland themed kid’s room. The quality is simply gorgeous too. Beautiful wallpaper for beautiful homes as the folk at Hibou say – I couldn’t agree more. You can check out the entire new collection here.

wallpaper for a white nursery

All-white nurseries are as popular as ever and look even more stunning with the merest hint of colour. Introducing a feature wall is the perfect way to do this. I’ve listed some of my favourite wallpapers over on The Baba Blog - now all you have to do is choose!

happy spring!

Spring is officially here today, so to celebrate I wanted to share this gorgeous floral Garden Deer wallpaper by Zoe Barker. Don’t you think that a single panel of this would make a sweet accent mural in a spring nursery or kid’s bedroom? The design can also be printed large scale as individual wallpaper panels, printed at 160cm wide, tailored to your space.

studio ditte kids’ wallpaper for bn wallcoverings

I love Studio Ditte‘s wallpaper designs. You’ve probably come across their creations before – the scrapwood, robot, birdhouse and cars wallpapers for example. Though not all designed specifically for children, their wallpaper designs are eminently child-friendly and look great in kids’ rooms as an accent mural or feature wall.

In collaboration with BN Wallcoverings, Studio Ditte have recently released a new range of kids’ wallpaper inspired by toys of the past. The designs have a 1950s look and feel, with faded, aged colours and vintage style graphics.

The children’s collection includes small patterns using details from the main designs. It’s these that I find most appealing as they have a timeless quality to them – though they work beautifully with the main designs too. You can check out the full range here.

mimi'lou circus wall sticker giveaway

Today I have another great giveaway to share with you… Room to Bloom has teamed up with children’s décor boutique Petit Home to give away this fun Mimi’lou Circus wall sticker!

Measuring 5 metres, the circus wall sticker makes a cute little frieze above a cot, changing table or kid’s bed, and looks great against a bright white wall or wrapped around a corner. It’s an easy way of bringing a bit of circus fun to your child’s bedroom without committing to an all singing, all dancing circus theme – the wall sticker is easily removed when you little one is ready to move on.

How to enter to win the Mimi’lou Circus wall sticker:

1. Leave a comment below telling me where you envisage using the wall sticker.

2. Go to Room to Bloom’s Facebook page to share the giveway on your own Facebook page (click here).

3. Job done! Of course, if you’d like to say thanks to Petit Home, I’m sure they would love a ‘like’ from you too : )

The giveaway is open to UK residents only and closes 24th February 2013 at midnight. The winner will be chosen at random and notified by email.

Good luck everyone!

PS – If you’re not familiar with Petit Home and love modern French inspired kids’ decor – think powdery grey-pink-lilac-mauve palettes and whimsical touches - then definitely check out Petit Home’s children’s bedding and lighting selection.

hibou home children’s fabrics

Hibou Home children's fabrics

Looking up one of Hibou Home’s children’s wallpaper designs for a new client, I happened upon this triptych of Hibou’s new children’s fabrics range. I love the subtle play of colours and the styling is super cute too.

The new designer fabric range complements Hibou’s wallpaper designs beautifully, but I think pattern like this works best if a little is used and given room to shine.

If you haven’t come across Hibou’s stylish wallpaper for kids (I doubt that very much as they have become hugely popular all over the world since their launch at the end of 2011), check out the full range on their website here.

You can read more about Hibou Home in an interview with founder Emma Lycett here.

Happy decorating!
