Della's delightful room

As you may know I'm a proud Mum to two lovely ladies who are 3 and 5. I've realised that no room is more fun to decorate than a children's room. Not only can you go a bit wild, but also it needs constant updating as they grow - perfect excuse if ever I needed one!  I'm always keeping an eye out for children's rooms on Pinterest. And today I spotted this very cool space belonging to little 18 month old Della. The monochrome room was designed by her Swedish Mummy and Daddy: Sandra and Marcus, the creative duo behind playful graphic poster shop Miniwilla. Thank you Della, for allowing me to share a tour of your room today!

I spy: Prints and posters by Miniwilla, the Joanna Rug, String shelving, Eco Forest baby blanket, Miffy lamp, Lundby Dolls house, Honeycomb pom poms, Fjälllräven ruck sack, Tee pee. A selection of gorgeous children's designer clothes.

Such a cute room don't you think?

For those of you hurtling towards the school Easter holidays in a panic - I love this DIY easter t-shirt project for afternoon entertainment.

And for those of you who fancy a more grown up take on a white space for today's inspiration - I love this home of a creative Finnish duo, this Brazilian home and this monochrome Dutch space.

Have a great day!

A cool monochrome Swedish home

P and I had very different ideas of what we were looking for when we bought our house but after a broad search we moved 50 metres! My parents did the same when we were small. It just goes to show what you are looking for is often right under your nose! Do you find this to be true? Swedish pair Lina and Andreas Kanstrup were planning a new build when a house came on the market 100 metres away. They were sceptical but the moment they walked in the door they knew it was right and all building plans went out the window. They renovated their new house from scratch learning lessons on the way and relying on gut instinct. I think the end result is fabulous, don't you?

Who knows, maybe your dream home is a few metres from where you live (unless of course you already live there)?!

There are so many things I love about Lina and Andreas home, including the open plan kitchen, mix of vintage and modern and the monochrome look.

I spy: Kitchen: Cabinets, lights, metal shelf, firdge, fan, stove all IKEA. Tiles are gloss 15 cmm x 15 cmm. Thonet chairs (15% off with code MYSCAN). Lanterns. Office: Desks and shelves from IKEA. Flowerpot lamp. Bedroom: Muuto Dot hooks. Hand sculpture.

Is there anything in particular you love about this home?

Oh and thank you to the team at Good Homes magazine UK for featuring me in their May edition and also to Garmentory for publishing an interview with me here. Exciting!

Have a lovely day!
