Quick and easy – fresh look for the kids room

Wildlings Interiors
Everyone I know is really fed up with February and more than ready to give everything a very well deserved kick into Spring. We have enough of the rain and grey!

One very easy way to freshen up a room is to bring in a new print or two. It really is the cheapest as well as fastest route to ‘something new’. And of course I am here to help. I discovered a lovely UK based studio that does the sweetest prints. And their portfolio includes a lot of fresh, fruity, and lovely prints that are perfect for a ‘jump into Spring’ mission.

Wildlings Interiors
Kelly from Wildlings Interiors is based in Kent and has a real passion for children’s interiors and decor in particular. Therefore she went to art college and worked as a jewellery designer and maker for many years.

Since having her own little ones, her focus has unsurprisingly shifted. And she founded Wildlings, where she designs beautiful and timeless pieces to adorn your own mini spaces with.

Looking for more interior inspiration – I highly recommend to have a look at the extensive children’s interior section on my blog. Enjoy!

The star edit!

The star edit!
 

After we started off the week in rather magical and mystic ways, I will keep the feeling and share some of my current favourites that shine with stars.

Stars are one of those designs that are always current and everyone loves. They are kinda gender neutral too and reflect a lot of themes like space, ballerina, or magic.

And look at yourself and your friends – do you know somebody who likes stars? I bet you do. Do you know somebody who does not? Now you probably have to really think and not come up with a name…

Exactly… stars are fun, cool, and timeless.

And they do pop up in all kind of ways in our wardrobes and homes. Here are the ones that I would shop right now:

 

1. A star lantern* macrame style. In lots of subtle and beautiful colours. Definitely not only for the kids room but I am sure your kids would love one…

2. Woah. Such a cool print. And one very warm jacket – perfect for your upcoming winter holidays!

3. We all know – it is in the details. And these star pins will change your look immediately.

4. I knooooow. They are awesome. They are sneaker fever*! And in case you do not like pink, or the glitz, they are many other cool styles available.

5. This lamp is called the twirly lamp and the best part is – it comes with a set of fun magnets that you arrange just as you wish…

6. The perfect outfit to dance to your dreams, to twirl to your future, and to hang up in your room when not worn.

7. A star teething necklace that is as cute as cupcake!

Half Time! More stars coming:

8. Those sneakers can definitely show off these stardust leggings. Match made in heaven!

9. Delightful onesie.

10. Tulle, and more tulle. And lots of gorgeous stars – the perfect party dress*.

11. Cute, simple, and something for every day – this sweet star headband*.

12. Boy, girl… anyone will love this cool jumper* that just screams COMFY!

13. Cool kids need cool socks* as well.

14. The simplest way to add some magic and to turn a room into a place out of a dream – a stunning star garland*! By the way, here are some truly magical kids rooms!

21 fun things for your February!

paul paula blog

Ha! One month of 2020 is over. One full month. So quick! But next month we do get an extra day and to make sure we enjoy it to the fullest, I am sending you off with my latest finds.

As usual – a great mix of articles, fashion, family interiors, and other bits for yourself and your family!

Please enjoy, and let me start straight with this statement from a very good read:
“We hold our kids’ worries and dreams, our partner’s stress, our parents’ fears. We hold the nagging voice that tells us we must always push ourselves harder and take on more.”
Are we holding too much? Elephant Journal

And here are 20 more fun things:

Handmade bohemian furniture for the kids room

sacred bundle
The story of Sacred Bundle started in the South of France. Where Guillaume and Brooke met and where Brooke shared her dream and vision with the man she met.

Today they are living in Australia, Brooke’s home country, and make some truly magical furniture and accessories for nurseries and children’s rooms.

Handmade bohemian pieces that are made with love as well as unique Moroccan textiles! Everything is uniquely designed, exclusive, fair trade, and made from natural materials.

When looking through these images, I find that the rattan really makes for a very calm, tranquil, and natural atmosphere. Just beautiful and so boho:

And even so we are very happy with our four, seeing this makes you dream a bit about decorating a nursery for a new baby, doesn’t?

From the cute wall decor, to the most gorgeous bassinets, and the rugs. Beautiful morrocan rugs in various sizes that of course can find a spot outside the nursery too.

And for even more natural nursery inspiration I have this for you: natural kids decor and a natural nursery.

The electric blue edit!

The electric blue edit!

Hello new week and I promise that as of now I am really back. Last week was a bit loopy because I had to juggle a few private things and come to terms with other stuff.

But that is life and sometimes we just need to do what we need to do. And make space for the necessary.

And to come back all eclectic and joyous, I am bombarding you with pretty things in blue. Yes! Classic blue is the colour of the year which suits me very well because I was not a huge fan of the colours from the years before. And, you know already, blue is just always good.

Therefore I am going vibrant and here are my favourite, lucky number, 13 things in electric blue:

1. For mum: Fabulous kimono dress* – here in electric blue but available in many beautiful shades.

2. Brush stroke dress for easy peasy sunny days.

3. To decorate: Super cute hand embroidered hoop – Ponyo*!

4. Fun headband* to perfect any outfit.

5. On the go: Cool backpack*!

6. Such a vibrant swimsuit*. This is the mini version and here* you can find sizes up to 10 years.

7. Move Right! Move Left. Easy with these sneakers*

8. Sleepover, sport club, or little trip – you are sorted with this fun bag*. Loving the polka dots too.

9. The best way to protect from the sun is a good hat*. This one hits the cool and chic factor too!

10. Broderie anglaise lace dress. Very chic!

11. Wooden whale*. Always a winner!

12. Electric blue for baby with this sweet romper.

13. To cuddle: Another whale* – but this one is giant and very soft!

 

More edits? How about Teddy styles or corduroy?
