  • Stirling’s Triple Treat- Part 2- Boo & Child











    After the delicious lunch at Patch Kitchen and Garden (read all about it here), I wandered through to Boo and Child where I was greeted with beautiful high ceilings, light filled windows and  crazy-good feature walls, all with beautiful stock gorgeously displayed throughout. I L.O.V.E.D. the awesome range of boys clothes and accessories, so many great brands and super cool pieces.












    There were so many quirky pieces that are just screaming for someone to make their statement piece in an outfit, from horses on necklaces to lace “Mickey Mouse” ear headbands, to oversized fluffy pompom beanies… I could have bought so much.












    In addition to all of the beautiful BEAUTIFUL clothes, there were many unique room decoration pieces as well. From toadstool lamps, to beautifully framed artwork, to mason jars with brightly coloured lids and bold straws. One huge corner was taken up with shelves and shelves of awesome kids gifts, lots of cool present ideas and cute little trinkets.












    There is also a gorgeous separate room filled with nursery items, newborn clothes and accessories, and THE most divine sparkly cow hide rug!! Everything was just perfection.











    And don’t worry, its not all fun and games for the kids, there are some beautiful things for the lucky ladies in your life, and the lovely mums-to-be. With gorgeous gift wrapping and cute cards, Boo and Child is the perfect place to buy gifts

  • Yellow & Grey Nursery Design


    This beautiful yellow and grey coloured nursery, with cute little cloud touches, is all ready and waiting for its most precious addition- which should hopefully be arriving in the next two weeks!

    The super stylish and super organsied Kim is the proud owner of this beautiful baby haven, and she has kindly allowed me to share this magical space she has lovingly created.
    11028349_10203995710800588_1159107946905150570_n 11165055_10203995708640534_8079533492781591870_n








    Kim has managed to include many super cool on-trend items in this room, and they work beautifully with the classic larger pieces that will transition with the baby into toddler-hood and beyond. The metal words above the changetable, together with the cloud clock, create some lovely points of focus, while the pompom garland on the other side of the room balances it all out.











    I love the bold black house-shaped shelf that has been used to house little trinkets and baby items. The black is a great colour to make the little white and yellow goodies really pop. The blackboard garland above is also a great idea to be able to write different words and sayings on… maybe even the babies name once he/she is home!

    The little cloud and elephant touches throughout the room are really lovely too, especially the gorgeous knitted toy that sits on the rocking chair and the cloud cushion in the cot.











    Kim is one clever mumma-to-be, designing and printing her own artwork for the trio of white frames. Such a lovely personal touch to the room that will live long beyond the neutral nursery

    I will be featuring a “Shop This Look” tomorrow night, with a comprehensive and beautiful list of local items that will help you re-create something as beautiful as Kim has. Be sure to visit again tomorrow, and I will also update you with the final addition for this nursery in the next week or so!

    Here is a sneak peak of tomorrow’s post…

  • Room Makeover: 8 Year Old Girl

    AL Molly Room

    So the cleaning, tidying and purging has begun, and we aren’t far off finding the perfect finishing touches to Molly’s bedroom makeover.

    Going through all of her bits and pieces, we have transitioned from My Little Ponies to Schleck only animals, Barbies to Little Live Pets, and all the Sylvanian Families have stayed, but are now housed in sweet aqua suitcases rather than old shoeboxes (!!). Her desk has cute jars for all the beads, sequins, shells and erasers that she collects, actually making way for a space to do her homework.

    I did not have a budget for the makeover, but am always on the hunt for bargains, second hand purchases and upcycling. Kmart is perfect for overhauls like this, as on-trend pieces don’t cost much at all, and you can have fun with pieces that you don’t ‘need’, but instead just want. There are always key-item pieces that I don’t mind spending more on, if they are going to give years of use and wont date.

    Here is her shopping mood board, and as always, all pieces are from Adelaide based shops (online and bricks and mortar).

    Stay tuned for photos once we are all done!

    If you need help with styling a room in your house, or help with an upcoming celebration, don’t hesitate to drop me a line as I LOVE creating mood boards for all occasions and décor styles.
