The incredible Tobias and the Bear launch their new ‘Batty’ range very soon and we are so excited to give you a sneaky preview. We’ve long been huge fans of their leggings, t-shirts and fabulous bedding which are a brilliant partner to our Velveteen Babies garlands.

Batty Leggings


Barney is wearing the new Batty leggings in a size 2-3 which are a great fit, and the monochrome style fits so well with this tee from Nor-folk. Tobias and the bear are also releasing a black batty tee which we’ll have to get our hands on!

The range complements our superhero garland so well that we just had to create a room set to take some pictures. The unisex contemporary styling of the range is sure to be a hit with design loving parents, and the cheeky bat design a must have for small people, a win-win situation.

Now that I’ve discovered I’m expecting a little girl, I have suddenly become a devotee of the humble but beautiful pastel palette. 

I’ve put together a few pastel looks from a few of my favourite children’s /  interior  websites, and some of my own products as they work so perfectly in tandem. 

I’ve also been working with Cotton Ball Lights which have so many different and beautiful colour options in their online store. 

For the perfect pastel base, use simple white walls, or a pale grey like we have. 

Velveteen Babies

Perfect Pastels


In this look, I’ve used a string of cotton ball lights in pastels from cottonballlights.com/uk (used throughout) to tie in lots of pastel hues, so that the look doesn’t get too ‘pink’ ! Pink and grey makes a perfect combination, and I’ve used this beautiful dolls bed from This Modern Life as a sweet accessory. 

The monochrome dolls bedding is from Willie and Millie which has a little cover and pillow, the perfect size for the little cot. 

The Icecream garland is my pastel Icecream garland available to order in my Etsy shop each Friday.

Icecream Garland


Filling a paper bag with toys lends a more rustic contemporary look to a children’s room, and I’ve filled it with some of our little toys. 

The pink muslin swaddle is by Fine Little Day at This Modern Life again.

Dolls bed and Cotton Ball Lights


I never planned to get so ‘girlie’ but adding greys and whites keeps this look well away from sickly territory. Personally I’m not a fan of beiges and champagne colours, but wanting a soft look to baby’s area, the greys and pastels are ideal. 

Our cotton ball lights are perfect for creating a warm cosy space by night, and a soft light for night time feeds, and by day they are another pretty accessory. 

String Shelves

String Shelves, white Ash


I’ve also created a little shelf area using white ash String Shelves from Utility Design which are ideal for displaying our trinkets. I try and keep a balance of whites, greys and pastel touches so it doesn’t become overbearing. 

I’ve also started to collect sweet baby accessories and clothes from some of my favourite shops. These pink moccasins are made by Wolfie and Willow and they are the softest chrome free leather. 

These little socks are from Archies Boutique and are by Petit Pattes who make the most beautiful baby gift or treat. 


I also found this sweet cloud top and matching leggings at The Little White Company which goes so well with our other ‘cloud’ items which are dotted about. 


I found this little pink teething ring at Archies Boutique too, perfect as a gift or to stash away in my case!

Finally, I’ve made a new mobile style with sparkling and felt icecreams which will launch in my Etsy shop on May 6th.

We love how well each product goes with our Velveteen Babies garland designs for a bright or cloud themed nursery.
