I'm loving this blue and caramel look right now for children's rooms. My friend recently built a new home and this is the bed linen she chose for her two boys who share a room. Don't you think it looks fresh and relaxed? I absolutely love it teamed with white timber furniture and white walls.
The best thing about this blue and caramel colour scheme is that it's so adaptable. It works for babies, young children, older children and boys and girls. It's perfect for sister-brother share rooms and for coastal homes....this is my pick of the week!
I don't think this actually classifies as a cubby somehow. Available from Posh Tots, this 'Victorian Playhouse' is custom built for only the poshest of posh children. Priced at a mere, $23,000 it includes running water, electricity, air-con, wi-fi and wait for it - customised window treatments, furnishings and flooring including timber or marble!
A few years ago we built a cubby in our backyard for Isabella and Alex. Before we started I spent quite a bit of time researching design ideas and I was amazed to discover that there are some really OTT cubbies around. Not to be outdone, I designed a high-set Queenslander style cubby with its own wrap-around deck, slippery slide and gorgeous love-heart shutter windows - perfect for playing "cafes". I must find photo of it to post...In the meantime I thought I would share with you a picture of the most dreamy cubby house I have ever seen. Oh to be the girl that owns this....don't you just love the bird cage hanging from the ceiling and the "Giggle" word decor? Simply divine.
When it comes to celebrating special occasions the Royals certainly seem to have this down pat. I recently had the pleasure of attending the Christening of my nephews' Hugo (my brother and his wife's son) and Christian (my sister and her husband's son) - a double cousin Christening or a "Monster Christening" as my brother described it. It was a joyous family day that saw three large families come together from far and near.
My nephews were decked out in splendid Christening outfits, not dissimilar to those pictured above - Christening outfits that my Mum had purchased 25 years ago when we were only children in readiness for this very day. We thought she was off her head at the time. I distinctly remember us saying to her, "How do you know we will even have kids" and her replying, "You will". Now, all these years later we are grateful for her wacky ways - having these special garments for our babies to wear on their special day certainly helped create a sense of occasion. Thanks Mum! x
I shudder to think at how much I spend on magazines every year. It's a guilty pleasure that I just can't get enough of. It seems that the more I buy the more I want. I love all types: fashion, gossip, parenting and kids' and above all else, home and interior ones. When I go on holidays I binge out completely and my poor husband and children barely get a look in.
Now there's a new breed of magazine - the online one - more pleasure, but guilt-free as it doesn't cost a cent. At the top of the pile, in my opinion, is LMNOP - a magazine that showcases imaginative brands and products for children sourced from all over the world. The photography and styling is pure perfection. If you love magazines and everything stylish and you're not already a subscriber you must visit lmnop.com.au to download your FREE copy. This issue features THE MOST divine girls' fashion shoot I think I have ever seen plus a fantastic travel story on NY.
I've been receiving the most wonderful compliments about the new photos on our website. I've got to say, I'm thrilled to bits with how they turned out. And what a fun day it was doing this photo shoot. My little models, Bella, Ruby, Maddie, Alex, Jamieson and Asher were unbelievable. The girls especially had a ball as you can see from the photos. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank my superb models for being so absolutely gorgeous!

I'm tickled pink today for Gelati Art to be included in the very first issue of Shop Girl - a gorgeous new magazine especially for 7-12 year olds. Our littleL.O.V.E. Letterswere featured on page 122. How great is that?! I can thoroughly recommend this magazine to anyone who has a tweenie. Lots of great fashion and gift ideas. Too bad this mag wasn't around when I was a tween...I would have loved it!
We've joined up with Red Plum Linen and My Child Magazine to give away a prize pack that includes a gorgeous duvet set, throw cushion and collection of Gelati Art canvas prints. Valued at $580! You can choose any designs you like but what little girl wouldn't love this stylish neapolitan colour palette theme and Cute Winking Girl design in their room? Don't you just love this new look for girls?
