An alphabet on your wall...

Alphabet walls are a great idea. They're an educational feature that you can personalise to compliment your nursery, playroom or bedroom decor. Here's some lovely executions to inspire you...


Of course, decorating each letter can become no small task on it's own without having to source all of the letters and keep track of size and scale as well...

And that's where Gigi by Noosh comes in! This alphabet comes already designed, cut and packed ready for you to add your own little zhoozhy treatment to!

Two in powder blue

There is nothing I can say that could contribute any more to the beauty of these two rooms...

Lego: Store & Display

Here's a stylish display solution for Lego - printers drawers! The lovely vintage typographers trays are ideal for showing off all those "delightful" little bits of molded plastic that can often be found strewn across the floor (well, my floor anyway), and they're much safer up on the wall like this than under my shoe acting as a skate. (Do I sound jaded? It's been a long day - sorry.) 

You can often find these on eBay or Etsy too. Here's a couple of links... 
You can see how lovely they are and how you choose to decorate them is limited only by your imagination!

A modern boys life...

Right now...

I'm loving ruffles. Here's 5 reasons why...

Hmmm, a cushion that was beautiful before, but now... and so easy! 




The stair/slide

When I saw this, I instantly thought of Emma over at The adventures of baby pirate and Captain Nicholas - these are her favourite thing in the world. And I can see why! Until I stumbled on this one I'd only ever seen straight ones, but this spiral puts a whole new "spin" on the concept (bad mum joke apologies), I'd like one in my house!

Weapons for the flu season

Been here yet this year? If you haven't, it's probably not far off. Sorry, but it's true. Our house was struck down this week. Awful. But I have good news. One of my girlfriends shared a link with me when she heard I'd been under the weather, and I thought I'd pay it forward to all of you so you can arm yourself against the army of bugs touring around daycare centres, preschools and kindergartens at the moment too. You probably already know most of it but it's a great time of year for a reminder about what you should be doing to ward off lurgies...

DIY: Cloud Rugs

Here's what Hugh and I will be working on this weekend. It's the cutest and easiest DIY in the world!
It comes from the clever Marichelle over at Lifeflix. Check out the step by step below or pop over here for the full tutorial...

Colour crush: Teal

I love teal. Just a dash or a room full of it. It's a divinely rich colour that has the ability to be cool or warm. On a velvet couch or a peeling painted antiquity - it is, completely, stunning.


Get this look with a Noosh Gigi Alphabet!

OTT Pirate Room

Here's one to guffaw at! The parents of the kiddo who resides here are either the coolest mob in the world or they're completely bonkers... you decide.

Scoot over to Freshome for more pics of this Steve Kuhl design and the whole story - including the quadruple loop spiral slide! Unbelievable!

Etsy find: I want to buy this for the kiddos

Chomp Tee - found this over at The Brothers Trimm fab blog... Only $26USD @ Etsy. Click here to buy.

Excuses

Okay, so I know I've been a bit slack lately with my posts. One a day (nearly every day) isn't my usual standard. And I want to apologise for that... But also explain. See, Noosh passed a very important milestone this month - we're 6 months old! If Noosh were our actual baby, it'd be on the verge of mobile. We're very proud parents, and all the positive feedback we've been getting from you about Frankie has been wonderful. So much so, we've decided it's about time we brought you some new things! So there it is - my excellent excuse. I've been busy designing! I can't tell you too much just yet, but suffice to say the new Noosh products will be just as clever, innovative and stylish as the ones you already know and love. Stay tuned for more info, a reveal and best of all, an opportunity to pre-order very soon...
Until then, keep enjoying NooshLoves, spread the word about us and know that when I'm not bringing you inspirational posts it's because I'm busy designing you gorgeous new products!

Amazing...

Doesn't this just sum up the amazing little miracle that is each and every child?

My top 4 great bedroom ideas

1. A racetrack for the floor. Boys love running their cars up and down the walls and across the floor and furniture - why not give them a stylish track that's mess-free and doesn't need to be packed away at the end of the day?
2. A blackboard shape for the wall. This bold blackboard shape makes a statement even when it's blank. It provides the kiddos with a spot to draw, write and play and can either be painted on with blackboard paint, or if you're after a less permanant solution, try ebay or amazon for blackboard contact paper for only about $12 a roll.
3. The princess canopy. Most little girls love the soft, prttiness that mosquito nets bring to a room. Why not make your own with a sheer fabric that works with your decor? 
4. Starry starry night lights. Like most wee ones, Hugh is scared of the dark. We've tried many solutions over the years with different nightlights but mostly they're either too bright or not bright enough (he's kind of a Goldilocks type). The one we've got now though is working best of them all - a battery operated set of ten LED starlights we picked up at Spotlight for $5. I've wrapped them around the bedhead and they stay on all night. Best part is, they don't contribute to the electricity bill! Oh, and they look good too...

Stair devotion

I do love a staircase. Especially one that has been as tastefully and thoughtfully decorated as this one. Mmmmm-mmm that's so good!

Make it big

I was over at Oh Dee Doh today and stumbled across a post about the 5 indulgences for small kids rooms . One of them has stuck with me all day. Big art. Do you remember what was on your walls when you were a kid? Apart from the pink floral wallpaper my mum chose, I don't really. So why not steer away from lots of little nice bits and pieces and give them one really big memorable piece? Take a look at these for inspiration...


Bird love...

I wouldn't mind this one in my own room - loving that grey!

The clouds are just cut outs of fabric dipped in a cornstarch mixture to stick them to the wall.

This one is done with washi tape would you believe? Now that's creative...
