Nursery Tour: Patrick’s Room

Last year I worked with Patrick’s mum to create a gender neutral nursery (below). 

Nest Design Studio Mini Design

Not all of us live in capital cities (as is the case with both myself and Patrick’s mum – and many of my clients) with designers and products available at our doorstep. So my clients hire Nest to create a room that allows them to order things as their budget allows and also put their own personal stamp on the room.

The aim was to create a nursery that incorporated yellows and greys and keep the room gender neutral. I knew when Patrick’s mum sent me through photos of the nursery finished, I had to send a photographer along to get professional snaps for my portfolio.  It’s such a lovely, airy and simple design!

Adventures at Kids Instyle

On Thursday, I attended Kids Instyle. A trade only event for all things good in kids!  My attention was obviously on the decor products, but there were so many fabulous clothes, shoes, accessories and toys there for those with retail shops.  Some of these pics have been shared on instagram and facebook, but I’m sharing lots of goodies today!  Not everything though…..I do need to keep some secrets up my sleeves! 

Excuse the phone photos!

I’m loving banners at the moment and these initial ones from Printspace were very cool.

The whole stand at Ladeedah was gorgeous and I’ve already specified the yellow spot bean bag for a client!

Not decor, but I loved the DIY archery set and ice-cream skipping ropes from Seedling.

This stand caught everyone’s eye I think..a beautiful stand of all things fairy and whimsical from Little Fairy doors.

I put this photo up on facebook and fair to say, I think this linen will sell out quite fast (from Haveli) judging by your reactions.  It feels and looks gorgeous.

Fab things at The Karton Group too.

And that is just a small sample of it all.  Last year I attended and was in and out very quickly and was a bit disappointed, but this year was very different and loved it all!
