KIDS TUESDAY.... some decorations for the room

There is so much to find to decorate a kids room. No matter what style you like. I love to source things that trigger a kids imagination or their urge to play. With Dinosaurs, bugs and pretty art pieces you can never go wrong. All come in different prints, colours and shapes so make sure you visit the sites to find the ones that fit your room.

KIDS TUESDAY... Let's head for the mountains

With the wether changing and Autumn approaching we get that 'get the house winter cosy' itch. But what to look for? It is so hard these days to find something original. When I open Instagram I see mommy bloggers working hard to get their kids all the cool items (often in a sponsored post) and this inspires other moms to get inspired and follow. What I am longing for is quirkiness, identity, uniqueness. Difficult as with Internet we have all seen it somewhere before. For this wallpaper I've looked on Spoonflower. It makes me feel that you can reach all the fun designers that normally would not be able to create a wallpaper. With a handful of colours represented in the print as my starting point it was easy to find the right accessories to decorate the room. All it needed as a finishing touch was some quirkiness. The result: a moodboard with FUN, PLAYTIME and HUMOUR.

Hello Friday.... new Flexa 2019 colour: Spiced Honey

Flexa presented the colour of 2019 this week. Last year I was not very keen on the colour of the year. Heartwood will not be likely to end up on my wall. This new colour is more my cup of tea. It is called 'spiced honey' and it feels a bit caramel to me. I've used this colour to create an inspirational collage.

With autumn approaching I've chosen some warm terracotta colours to match and soften the Flexa paint. Plus some warm brique red accents. My hands are getting itchy to make some changes at home. Was already thinking about new colours and feel I've found my match.

Kids Tuesday.... step outside your comfort zone

Who needs a comfort zone when it comes to creating a kids room? Whatever you do... dstep on't ever leave the odd one out. It may just make the room. When creating this collage I was not really sure if the leopard print throw would work. That thought in itself is reason enough for me to leave it there. If I take it out and put a more plain coloured one there it would become 'expected' and therefor somewhat boring. The last thing I look for in a kids room is boring.

The bamboo fly screen is so pretty it could just as easily be a wall hanger in the room. I can imagine kids finding come peace and calm from their hectic every day lives when they are laying in bed playing with the strings.

Hello Friday.... Let's go outside and enjoy the Summer

Let's talk about this summer. It is such a great sunny and warm time this year. Nothing better to do than go outside and enjoy your garden. This trend I am quite positive is coming directly from all the Pinterest inspirations. The dark timber in the gardens combined with luscious greens. I also have a few boards filled with some amazing gardens. Another thing I really like are the flagstone patios. A bit 70s but I like the playful, natural look you get with this tile. 

As much as I enjoy long evenings outside I really don't like getting cold or eaten by mosquitos. So often I pull a little blanket over my legs. Both for comfort and practical reasons. Enjoy these garden suggestions. And how exciting that you can find so many nice options for design garden lighting. You will have to dig a bit in your wallet but how often do you change garden lights? They are so worth it.

Hello Friday... this feels like summer! It's holiday time

I can smell the summer here! Iced cold Gin and Tonic drinks, vibrant colourful vegetable crisps and kids playing outside. The school holidays have started and I am hoping it will allow me to do a bit more blogging. Sounds a bit off but I work as a freelancer during school hours. So with the holidays here I will be home a lot more. Hopefully you'll have a great summer and I can't wait to throw some more inspirations your way...

K i d s T u e s d a y - not every super hero is one of the Avengers

Every kid has big dreams. Wether it is to become an astronaut or a superhero. And they all love love love a themed bedroom. Mums do as well but they cringe when they think of the off the shelf commercial bright superhero stuff. As the really young ones don't watch it anyways you can offer them your own take on the SUPER HERO theme. Here's mine.... It's soft, it's cuddly, it's often hand made and absolutely stylish.
