Bring the beach adventure feel to their bedroom

 

Rooomy’s round up of great accessories for your kids’ bedroom that will give them  

a sense of being on holiday and chilling out.

Bring a taste of the beach and some wonderful texture to your child’s room with this brilliant rug. The little details on the pebbles are wonderful: the designer has thought of everything, including different sizes for the stones to give it a true pebbled beach vibe, just as you would find on Brighton sea front.  All the fun with none of the discomfort

BWall hangings are becoming more and more popular: macramé is having another moment! Considering something different for their walls? Featuring a playful dolphin and the serene yet humongous whale, whose enormity never ceases to amaze us. Perfect for a nursery (they can double as a mobile too_ or for any child who loves all things under the sea, sing with me now…….

If the worn, shabby look is what you are after, this driftwood clock brings a touch of colour to the room without being too bold. It’s always great to have a balance of new and old when styling a room.

In the celestial universe of Petit Pan, kites are kings and they show this passion off beautifully in their lamps. The lamps are made of bamboo and hand painted bamboo silk: this description alone makes us want to buy one! The finish is wonderful, a stunning way to bring creativity and beauty to your child’s room. They are also available in the style of clouds, seahorses, hippos and more. Check out the range here

Spring Walls for Kids’ Bedrooms

Spring Walls for Kids’ Bedrooms

Best of the Rest

 

Patricia Hoyna shares her top finds from the Scottish Interiors Showcase 

The Spring season is when new collections come to life and fabulous designs are released to spark our imagination. This year is no different and I’d like to share my personal favourites from the Scottish Interiors Showcase, the biggest trade-only event in the UK.

Animals, birds and botanicals were the most notable trend in the world of textiles and wallcoverings. With colour palettes ranging from subtle pastels to punchy, electric blues, vibrant reds and mustard yellows.

Two companies in particular caught my eye with their fantastic range of children’s wallpaper. One you probably all know, Sweden’s, Borastapeter, manufacturing wallpapers since 1905! The other brand, Caselio, is also renowned for its innovative and high-quality products, coming to us from France with their bold and funky, modern designs. They are both very strong contenders, yet with very different visions. 

‘One wallpaper and thousands of tales’, is the new collection from Borastapeter Scandinavian Designers Mini and Scandinavian Designers II. These playful wallpapers feature fantastic patterns from some of Sweden’s foremost children’s artists and playtime inspirations. Whimsical, figurative motifs are designed to engage, delight and inspire; squirrels exploring, hooting owls in hats – telling a bed time story has never been easier! l truly love the calming qualities of Poem d’ Amour and my favourite is a shaggy polar bear that swims and frolics among lovely little water bubbles.

A pattern from the large, playful collection that Stig Lindberg composed for an exhibition at NK (the Nordic Company) in 1947. The managing director, Astrid Sampe fell in love with the pattern to such a degree that she had it turned into a dress. Stig Lindberg then made a necklace and bracelet of porcelain flowers for the dress that is now on display at the Nordic Museum.
Designed by Stig Lindberg, Scandinavian Designers II, Poeme d’amour 1765: £59.00

A hand-drawn wallpaper for children’s rooms that sees squirrels swinging, hanging upside down and gathering acorns. The contrasts, details and vibrant colours get the imagination going in this narrative pattern, created in Boråstapeter’s Design Studio. Here with a dark base, which creates a cosy, playful feel in children’s rooms. Also available with a white background for a softer finish.  Designed by Amanda Nordblad, Scandinavian Designers Mini, Charlie 6252: £59.00

Small Kid’s Rooms | Expert Advice from Wayfair Stylist

Small, but perfectly formed, kid’s room

Wayfair’s resident style advisor Nadia McCowan-Hill

tells is how to style baby sized rooms

 

“In a small space, you can’t afford to have excess stuff, so I’m a big fan of regularly editing my home. As a rule of thumb, I try to make sure that everything I have is either beautiful or useful (a nod to William Morris’s advice) and I try to curate and style each space as much as possible so it’s pleasing to the eye. I find it’s possible to give a room a new lease of life, simply by moving items around.”

Otis’ Room

As Otis is still a small baby, I wanted his room to feel tranquil and sleep-inducing! I started with a nature theme and stuck to a muted palette of sage green, white, dove grey and inky blue. For the furniture, I looked for blonde wood and touch­es of cane to maintain the natural feel.

The room itself is quite small, so I opted for a two-tone paint effect to enhance its character. A light-reflective warm white fills the upper wall and a soft Eau De Nil runs along the bottom.

The room is designed to take Otis from baby to toddler, so I chose a space-saving mini cot and a beautiful canopy for while he’s small. As he gets older, he will transition to the amazing house bed, which is such a unique piece where he can sleep and play.

Sticking with the nature theme, I gravitated towards accents and art with whimsical wildlife motifs.

In the Zone

Maximise square footage in a less-than-large abode, by zoning the space according to your needs. In our apartment, the kitchen and living room work as one, but each area is demarcated with a clear living area complete with a large rug which marks the space and a separate eating and cooking area. The master bed­room has been designed to be a relaxing and grown-up space that’s free from any paraphernalia, while the kids’ rooms are their spaces and are fully geared to their needs.

 

Smart Storage

Choose furniture that works double duty. In the boys’ room, I opted for several trunk sets, which look super stylish, but are also a fabulous place to stash toys.

Light Up Your Life

I’m a huge fan of statement lighting in small spaces. As well as offering illumination which makes a room feel bigger, unique lighting gives character. Choose bold chandeliers and pendant lights to bring drama to your vertical space, without encroaching on square footage. Then add ambience with table lights aplenty.

 

Edit Ruthlessly

In a small space, you can’t afford to have excess stuff, so I’m a big fan of regularly editing my home. As a rule of thumb, I try to make sure that everything I have is either beautiful or useful (a nod to William Morris’s advice) and I try to curate and style each space as much as possible so it’s pleasing to the eye. I find it’s possible to give a room a new lease of life, simply by moving items around.

 

Chloe Spillet, new Style Editor for Rooomy Magazine

Top 3 must-have kids’ room products

Statement art is a must-have for any kids’ room. It’s an easy and afford­able way to reflect their interests and adds instant character to a space

Smart storage is another important pick. As well as opting for practical shelving units, I love using baskets and trunks which look stylish but are also perfect for organizing toys so they’re easy to find.

Soft furnishings help to make a room feel cosy. It’s so important for small peoples’ rooms to feel comfortable and inviting for both adults and kids.

A Bohemian Nursery

Blow It vs Budget

 

Medina King shows us how to create a gorgeous boho nursery

that you and your baby will love to spend time in.

 

The bohemian nursery is the current trend – and rightly so with its use of natural materials and gender-neutral colour scheme, making it fit for a baby boy or a baby girl, as well as the parents.

The boho look is agile and fits the type of scheme that grows with the child, it can be converted to a family space or a home office. The nursery is also budget friendly.

Which item do you love most?  I am drawn to the plants, I always am, I can never keep them alive but they make such a difference to a room especially for kids, bringing the outdoors in, cleaning the air and they bring a simple softness to the space.  I do love the Moroccan pouffes too, they do bring sense of travel to the room, great for kids to climb on, a extra sitting space for little bottoms and of course perfect for weary adult feet.

Have fun designing!

 

Thank you Medina!  These fab looks can be achieved for £1,760 or £610 and of course the great part is, if you can save on a few items then you might be able to splash out on a luxury piece that could become part of the family home at a later date.  Above all you now have a great shopping list, why not mix and match?  If you’d like to see more of Medina’s work check out her site here MK Kids Interiors

Rooomy Loves, For Babies

Rooomy’s Non-Nursery best finds for parents

 

In each issue of the magazine we have the Rooomy Loves feature.  My chance to share with you some brilliant finds which I think other parents will love, which are not related to your child’s bedroom.  Something for the home, a great gift maybe, a great book find or possibly something silly but fab.

 

IT’S NOT A PLAYMAT. . .

…It’s more of a rug. If you are looking for something for the baby to be on in your living space, be it lounge, kitchen or elsewhere then you need to check out these roll out mats from Totter and Tumble. Designed by a mum who knows that the foam playmats collect all the dirt and are tough to clean and that space can be needed for all the family to be on when hanging out on a hardwood or tiled floor. This is not a playmat, it is the size of a standard British rug. Designed as a simple, one piece, roll out, wipeable mat, with no fiddly pieces for crumbs to disappear down or be pulled apart. With 12 designs to choose from they are all stylish – reversible, subtle patterns and gentle colours to fit in with interiors and not overwhelm the senses. You’ll find them supportive – inspired by a luxury pilates mat, these playmats are a sealed slice of memory foam, making them tougher to rival a rug, but also perfect for adults home exercising too. Safe and soft to support and cushion tumbling little ones and safety tested to European toy standards, suitable from birth.

ESSENTIAL FOR A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP

Sleeping bags will make your baby feel snuggly and safe when sleeping which means less waking, hopefully. Consider these as part of the bedding for the room and buy a few that really go with the fab sheets you’ve bought. Make sure you check the tog ratings for the season!

ART BABIES CAN ENJOY

Black and White! Babies love black and white, the contrast is so strong for their developing eyesight that they will be mesmerized. Great for stimulating their brain and even better if you want to enjoy a few still moments and maybe actually drink your tea or coffee before it gets cold. The Wee Gallery offer heaps of great monochrome accessories but these Art Cards have lots of different themes on offer, they can be looked through on car journeys, lined up along the edge of the cot when you need to nip to the loo, I know I’d buy at least two, one for home and one for the changing bag.

Baby grows for the win, little outfits can take a lot of effort and might well need changing after an hour, if you want to avoid the plain white baby grows and want to introduce some life to your babies wardrobe/drawer or basket, then check out our selection of top babygro’s.

SOFT AND SNUGGLY

Sheepskin is wonderful for babies, the softness for their sensory pleasure and comfort, with its magical ability to keep them cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold. A must for newborns, sheepskin naturally traps air between its fibres creating a cosy micro-climate, while in warmer conditions, moisture is drawn away from the skin keeping babies dry and cool.  Medical studies have shown that babies settle quicker, cry less & sleep longer on a sheepskin.  The super soft, deep-pile, merino sheepskin liners from Bini Bamba will keep your big (little) softies cosy, seriously snugly and sleeping like a baby.

WEAN CLEAN

When it comes to feeding time let’s think, looking good and oh so practical and helpful, these floor mats for high chairs are waterproof, wipe-clean, and designed to protect any type of surface from spills, stains, and crumbs, providing peace of mind on top of a super stylish look. With 3 designs in 12 colour ways you’ll find something to suit your home.

Chloe Spillet, new Style Editor for Rooomy Magazine

 

BABY SOFT

Every parent wants the very best for the baby, we want to care for them and make sure they are happy and comfortable at all times. Bathing them to start can make some of us nervous, we want to wash them but we are conscious of how precious and delicate their skin is. Natural sponge can be very expensive and other products may seem too harsh, that’s why these super-soft bamboo wash cloths from Cuddledry and are just what you and your baby need.

 

Chloe Spillet, new Style Editor for Rooomy Magazine

 

TUMMY PLAY

Tummy time can happen naturally, or you might find putting your baby on their front very awkward to watch. My eldest was not a fan and my youngest just threw herself over. With  all things in life motivation is helped with incentive. A fab play mat toy like this from Done by Deer provides your babe with something to fiddle with, reach for, check out and interact with. This little croc is a great, fun character and of course will be a huge help in the pushchair too.

Nursery Reader Room

Creative, Pretty, Unique, Nursery

by India Thompson

 

We’d been living in our house for around three years before the little one arrived. Beforehand, the nursery was a spare room which was never really used. It was more of a dumping ground and a place to hang our washing. After finding out we were having a baby, I was straight onto Pinterest looking for ideas on what we could do.  

I love how much sun the room gets and I wanted to keep the room nice and light. As the ceilings are low we decided to paint half the walls to help make the room look bigger. I had spotted the Eleanor Bowmer wallpaper before we knew we were having a girl, as soon as we found out it was ordered.

 

Chloe Spillet, new Style Editor for Rooomy Magazine

Many of my purchases are all from small businesses, with my favourite being our Totter and Tumble play mat. The original wooden flooring isn’t ideal for crawling babies, so the play mat is perfect. One of the great things about it is it is double sided.

Some of the other items are, the wooden rainbow from Autumns Corner, prints on the walls from Pretty in Print Art, The Charming Press and It’s Made by Leah.

As we already had the chest of drawers I needed a changing mat that would be able to sit on the top. We went for one from the small business Mabel & Fox which looks great against the wallpaper.

Before we brought the furniture we had and idea of where we wanted things to go. However, my measuring skills weren’t quite up to scratch and I incorrectly measured the space, whoops! In the end we were much happier with the layout as it has given us more floor space.

The chest of drawers were from my late godmother and I want to find nursery furniture that would match. I struggled to find nursery furniture that I wanted and we ended up buying the cot and wardrobe from Ikea – although they don’t match, I think they work with the chest of drawers.

 

Chloe Spillet, new Style Editor for Rooomy Magazine

 

If we were to do the room again, I would like to have more space for books and toys and also some more plants in there. I think I would also utilise the space which is used as our airing cupboard, and instead, use this as a wardrobe, giving us more floor space.
