TREND LOVE: RATTAN IN CHILDREN'S ROOMS

It's been a part of most of our homes in some way for as long as I can remember and now, rattan is here to stay in children's rooms too! Whether as a feature chandelier, a basket or a key piece of furniture, rattan has a way of adding so much interest and style to every space it's a part of and I love it! Here are some of my favourite spaces that use this trend beautifully.

In this space, the rattan pendant pairs beautifully with the green of the palm wallpaper and that gorgeous table and chair set. This is just one room in an incredible new home in Australia.

Rattan can so easily be added in small doses, such as this rocking horse and the mirrors.

There is nothing better than a rattan daybed, such as this one here.

The intricate detail on this stunning vintage bassinet proves why rattan will always have a place in a baby nursery.

And finally, what could be better than curling up in a rattan swing chair with a good book or two?

FRIDAY INSPIRATION: WALL PAINT FUN!

It's Friday and I have a feeling this weekend is going to be a good one! I love how truly versatile paint is and thought it would be fun to share these ideas of how to use paint in a totally different way! Check out these inspiring ways to create a focal point in a kids' space.

I love how this simple mountain paint creates a subtle but effective background to this neutral space.

This painted corner is perfect for creating a personalized side to this shared room.

I love the house shape for all kinds of decor for kids, and this use of chalkboard paint creates just the right effect for the play kitchen to pop!

I've shared my love of the half wall trend before and truly any space with this dreamy light, those high ceilings and that gorgeous floor is fail-proof, but the half wall of black paint (and the innovative use of it on the armoire too!) is to die for!

Have a great weekend everyone!

10 MODERN (& SUPER CUTE!) KIDS CHAIRS

There are some things in life that you really don't need, but make parenting that much easier. Enter kids chairs. Sure, you can live without ever having one, but seeing toddlers at a table their own height with a chair their size is not only super useful, but yes, SUPER cute too.

When looking for a chair (or set of chairs) for your little one, think about its' purpose. Is it going to be for their bedroom? A spot to rest with a book? Or will it be next to a table and need to be upright? When considering what to go for, I like to say that functionality always comes first. A good chair for a table set should be wipeable whereas one in a bedroom for reading can really be any style you want!

These chairs are some of my favourites; practical next to a toddler sized table or right at home in a corner along with a good book wall
