Dreamy accessories for gorgeous children’s rooms

moi milli

Guten Morgen everyone. Today marks two weeks that my children have been in school and I am slowly picking things up again.

And I am crossing everything I have that it will continue this way because I would really love to continue working on projects and ideas instead of Google Classroom assignments and endless cooking. I am sure you understand. Somehow I am also only realising now that it has been 6 months and that it is a very long time indeed.

So, to end the week with something beautiful and comforting I am sharing the delicious home accessories* made by Klaudia who is based in Warsaw, Poland.

Moi Mili is a small studio, making lovely quilted bedspreads, colourful pillows and the most divine teepees*.

“We attach great attention to detail and everything we create we put a lot of heart and passion.”

Yes… I told you those teepees are extraordinary. How about frills and embroidery*, powdered flounces*, or even lace and tulle*?

So romantic…

“We want to create a pleasant atmosphere in every room, bring a smile to your faces and make your interior becomes unique.”

Everything is unique and proudly handmade in Poland with passion, close attention to details, and 100% natural materials. And you can clearly see the folk culture inspiration as well as the boho influence.

Stunning Malmo family home with hints of colours

Stunning Malmo family home with hints of colours

Hej Hej, today we are back in one of our old places. We are in Malmo, Sweden. And I have to say when I am looking at the pictures I do miss our place we had over there. It truly was the best thing during our time there.

And some of the features I can see in this lovely family apartment as well. High ceiling, lovely wooden floors, beautiful windows, with that gorgeous Scandinavian light falling through.

On top this place is showing off some very gorgeous wall colours that really bring out its features. Of course there is a lovely children’s room as well, which, again, has some lovely hints of colour. Something we do not see that often in Scandinavian homes.

Are you ready for the tour? Let’s start with the space for the little ones:

The coolest rainbow decor items for the children’s room!

rainbow decor kids room

I know! Rainbows have been around for quite some time now… but I think they are perfect for a nursery or kids room.

They give you this happiness and ‘everything is good’ feeling which is so important when living with children. And rainbows are truly timeless, loved by big and small and light up any space. Just think about what happens when the natural wonder of a rainbow happens. It captivates everyone.

Therefore, a rainbow is the perfect decoration for a kids room. Be it a print, a wall hanging or a beautiful toy, rainbows have the natural magic in them.

And I had a look around and found the latest rainbow decor items that will turn any place into a happy place. Stylish, easy and modern in 8 variations:

 

rainbow-rug-in-organic-cotton

Beautiful rainbow mat that can be used as a very lovely playmat for little ones and when outgrown even decorate the walls of the kids room. Clever!

 

changing basket cover rainbow

Changing pad cover with great rainbow print.

 

rainbow-rug

Happy rooms need a rainbow rug!

 

felt ball mobile nursery

Colourful and contemporary unisex felt ball nursery mobile.

 

rainbow-tapestry

Gorgeous tapestry. Can be used as a rug, bedspread, or hang up on the wall. And beautiful earth colours too.

 

modern rainbow print

Modern rainbow print that is so simple yet lovely.

 

rainbow-decorative-sticker

XXL rainbow sticker in boho style. Can be taken off easily which makes it easy in case you would like to re-decorate or the new piece of furniture would hide this beauty. Stick and peel as much as you want…

 

rainbow wall hanging

Macrame rainbow wall art! J’ adore!

 

Have fun decorating! As you can see there are many autumn and earthy colours in here. Taking you away from the usual bright and loud colours of a rainbow. To add a little more to the decor inspiration you can have a look at these handmade rainbow wall hangings or these cool prints that make for a quick decor update.

Hi there! How are you?

Just before we are heading straight into September I have some cool stuff ready for you. This time on a Monday so you get a good start into a new week as well.

Are you ready? 17 cool things for a great new week and an even better month of September:

Children workspaces that are perfect for home school and inspire imagination

Children work spaces that are perfect for home school and inspire imagination

Since we are far away from being done with Covid but summer breaks will eventually come to an end I thought it would be great to look a little more into workspaces for children.

Here in the UK, we are planning on sending children back to school in the 2nd week of September. Fingers crossed! However, I know that elsewhere schools will stay shut until next year. And that means doing the work from home and therefore a good space is needed.

Making a designated study space where kids feel comfortable, productive, and can concentrate is key and I will show you some great ideas, share some tips, and give you inspiration for your own four walls.

Welcome to this children workspaces that are perfect for home school and inspire imagination guide:

Creating a desk space

Having a special and comfortable space to study is crucial when you need to concentrate and to focus. And a dedicated desk is way better than working around the kitchen table. Plus this way you can keep all your pencils, erasers, and other school utensils on your desk – ready every time you continue to work. And I am sure your child will love to organise their own space.
Furthermore, a  great feature to have in a desk is adjustable height. Otherwise, you can also have an adjustable chair. That way the years of use are adding up.
I know that space can be an issue, so why not having a desk under a bunk bed or go for a small version with a drawer and the essentials can be kept in there.

I put together some great children’s desk to give you a head start:

 

kids' desks

 

1. Flexible desk*! The surface can be set to 3 different levels. I think it is great to be able to change up a little when you need it…

2. Cute desk* that comes in two sizes and a lots of colour options. Simple and cool!

3. Boho rattan desk*.

4. Perfectly combining design and functionality and the two compartments under the top can store everything. This desk* is available in white and celadon and has a groove for pencils on the top.

5. This desk* won the Red Dot Design Award and you can also add some drawers if you wish. (available in green and pink too)

6. Adjustable desk* with storage under the table and a great design. I love the natural version but there is blue and white as well.

7. Vintage style desk* that is available in different colours and has an accompanying chair* too.

8. This is a very stylish desk & chair set* that will look fantastic in any corner of your home.

Personalise the children workspace

Hang their artwork, add some time tables, and/or put a magnetic panel up to stick papers, notes, and drawings. Just make it fun, colourful, and inspiring. Have a look at my coolest art prints for kids’ rooms article to find great posters and more.
Colours are super important because they can turn a room into a great space and really help you to be creative. A room that screams happy and fun is so much better than a boring ‘classroom’ don’t you think?

Organisation

Think about your own desk or office. I am sure you are much more productive when it is clutter-free and tidy. And when you are creating a healthy learning environment for your kids it should be orderly as well.
Take a bookshelf and fill it with school books, paper, and art supplies. Provide little baskets for pens, glue sticks, scissors, etc. That way you will avoid a busy desk and leaving more space to do the work.

Don’t forget for the perfect children workspace:
You will need a bin, stock up on supplies, and keep healthy snacks in the pantry!
