"yellow baby room decor ideas"With all the sunshine here in the UK, I ‘m really feeling inspired by the colour yellow.  It’s one of my favourite colours for a baby room because it’s such a happy colour.  Yellow works so well for a boy or girl nursery but needs lots of white with it otherwise it can be a little overwhelming.  I’ve put together a little yellow nursery inspiration board with white walls and hints of other colours to inspire you in case you’re looking for unisex nursery decor ideas:

1.  yellow pendant light | 2.  bright red apple print | 3.  dotty wallpaper | 4.  knitted toy storage baskets | 5.  yellow plush doll | 6. dotted cabinet | 7.  vintage inspired kids chair | 8. yellow linen bed set

P.S. While I was searching for yellow nursery decor, I found one of the top related searches was ‘is yellow bad for baby room’?  Apparently, according to the internet, too much yellow (yellow walls, yellow furniture etc) makes babies cry!  I’ve never heard this before, have you?

Feeling fruity

"fruit decor for kids"

This whole fruit trend for kids isn’t going anywhere and I’m glad.  Fruits make a nice change from animals and with Spring coming (soon I hope), nothing says fresh quite like a fruit print does.  So here are a few of my favourite fruity pieces:

1.  Tomato poster…  2.  Cherries top…  3.  Fruit & veg picture book…  4. Fruity dolls…  5.  Apple board…  6.  Lemon baby trousers.

"pink and grey kids room ideas"I’m always dreaming of re-decorating every room in the house.  Today I’m loving pink and grey for my daughters room.  Grey isn’t the most obvious choice for a kids room but with a dash of pink I think it works so well.  Personally, I’d even go for just grey with lots of white but today I wanted to add a bit of pink to the mix.  This kind of colour scheme and decor also really appeals to my minimalist side.  When i started putting this board together I knew I would like the end result but I didn’t realise quite how much this colour scheme would appeal to me.  Hope you like it too…

1.  Harlequin wallpaper… 2.  Knitted flag garland… 3.  Circus print… 4. 3D Olephants mobile… 5.  Soft pink lacquered chair… 6. Beauty baby doll… 7.  Sonny angel doll… 8.  Floral print beanbag…  9.  Starry cloud cushion

"cute handmade dolls"

I’ve got an ever growing obsession with hand made dolls.  How can I resist when I come across such cuties like these?!  I found these ones over at a shop called Pretty Little Things.  Created by Californian designer and textile artist Lori Marie, these hand made cloth dolls are so adorable.  Lori also makes other sweet little things like these elephant garlands, little girly pouches and wallets and some cool feather crowns for dressing up fun.  All these delightful goodies come in bright and bold colours and would add a splash of fun to any little girls room.  Head to Lori Marie’s shop to find these dolls and all the other cuties!

Hand made dolls so cute!

"hand made dolls with vintage fabrics"

I was never very in to dolls when I was growing up.  I had a big brother and I guess I wanted to be like him so I played with his boy toys.  Fast forward several years (I won’t say how many!) and I’m now obsessed with dolls especially since I keep finding gorgeous ones like these.  How sweet are they?!  These handmade dolls by Warm Sugar are crafted in Illinois and dressed in the cutest clothes made out of a mix of vintage and designer fabrics.  I love their whole hat and scarf ensemble and I just love their adorable expressions.  Shannon, the designer also offers custom dolls where you can choose hair and eye colours, skin tone and colour of clothes so your bambino can choose exactly what she wants.  To check out these dolls head to Warm Sugar on etsy.

"soft toy dolls sophie & lili""sophie & lili doll"

That’s what these dolls are made for, so say Sophie & Lili, their creators.  I’m not the worlds biggest doll fan but when I saw these I instantly became one.  They’re super cute, handmade, one of a kind dolls from America.  They come in blonde, brunette or red-head and I’m so loving the back of each doll which is covered in a different funky fabric to complement the dolls dress.  You can even have your name sewn on to the back, just let them know the name when you order.

These dollies are available from the Sophie & Lili website and cost $25 each plus $5 for shipping across the pond.  They’re perfect as cuddly, huggable toys for toddlers and would make an oh so sweet and girly gift.  They’re also available as minis and I’m thinking perfect pram buddy for a newbee.
