In the world of babies and nursery styling, there is one extremely popular creature that pops up in all shapes and forms. The bunny.

Little Blue Nest

Creating some of the Little Blue Nest magic

Finding classic, muted and beautiful bunnies take a bit more work. A few months ago I discovered a brand on Instagram called Little Blue Nest. I clicked on their page and was instantly drawn to the colours and illustrations which hark back to an Enid Blyton age, and reminded me of one of my favourite childhood books- The Animals of Farthing Wood.

Created by Ila, the brand launched in late 2016. Ila set out to create an elegant and timeless nursery brand, and each each item is created from pure and organic cotton threads.

Another heirloom nursery purchase has to be this ceramic rabbit light £70 by White Rabbit England. They are handmade in the U.K and are a classic, something to love for years to come. It would look perfect on a wooden shelf, stacked on vintage books, or with a Velveteen Babies garland and a botanical print in any nursery.

Back to the Little Blue Nest collection, which covers both beautiful design, with the softest muslin. My daughter, Willa likes to sleep holding a muslin, and ever since I made my first purchase, our bunny swaddle blanket has been much commented on when we’ve had it out and about.

Sleeping soundly in her Little Blue Nest Baby collection.

Luckily for us, the range has increased since our first parcel, and the Little Blue Nest Baby range now comprises of soft muslin cot sheets, quilts, muslins and the original swaddle blankets in this bunny design, but also in a carefully and lovingly created collection of a number of illustrations. We took delivery of the softest cot sheet the other day, and it’s truly lovely.

Fawn toy by Maileg at Coco&Wolf and Numero74 cot bumper from Molly Meg.

Our sheet is teamed with a soft muslin Numero74 cot bumper and I’ve introduced wood and natural design influences to Willa’s space- a natural sheepskin rug on the floor and plenty of greenery in raffia baskets really works to create a calm and serene sleeping arrangement. Our sweet Maileg fawn toy is sourced from Coco&Wolf.

Velveteen Babies Bunny

Best bunny finds for a natural inspired nursery.

I’ve not got any artwork up, as we are moving house next week, but I think vintage inspired bunny prints by Boo&Bell would look sweet hung on a wood poster hanger around a nursery, or this Etsy find is this gorgeous print by Howell Illustration, which is so simple and subtle.

Creating a beautiful ethereal kids space is so simple with the addition of some gorgeous interior accessories and clever (but easy to achieve) styling. There’s such a movement towards beautiful, muted pastels, grey and soft watercolour textures in children’s interiors, that capture the imagination and are incredibly dreamy.

Velveteen Babies blog
For a girls room, then dirty muted pinks, or a stylised wallpaper can work well to give the room depth and identity, or go with a grey, Little Greene does some fantastic shades – My favourite is Dorchester Pink. For unbeatably beautiful wallpaper then you must visit hibouhome.com for the swans, clouds and stars, all designed and made in England.

To add even more magic then try applying some removable wall stickers in glitter stars from Little Cloud Kids, they come in gold or silver (and it’s fine to mix metallics too!)

Little Cloud Kids
We’re hoping to be moving house in 4 weeks, but we’ve used these in Willa’s existing room, and they are so easy to use and position. They add just the right amount of sparkle and we’ve used them on white walls- it’s still easy to get a magic look with white. In the next house I’ll be taking all these items but I’ll be painting the walls muted blush.

Velveteen Babies
The essential accessory to any magical kidsroom is a canopy, and ours is the grey colourway from Numero74 which you can find at Molly Meg in lots of colour options along with loads of coordinating items. We have a few of the star cushions which come in different colours and textures which we’ve placed with our silver moon cushion by Marjorie Minnie.

Pinterest is a huge source of inspiration and I’ve started to collate a board with some of my favourite images- a few of which are below. You’ll find our Pinterest at www.pinterest.com/velveteenbabies1 where we have lots of kidsroom inspiration and also pictures of our products that you can pin to your boards.

There’s another few components shown to creating a successful kidsroom with a magical feel. Lighting is crucial. Find wire fairy lights and wrap around a cloud or moon shape to create your own, or Cox&Cox have a star shape ready lit.

Velveteen Babies Moon, Star and Cloud garland

Mrs Mighetto prints are the perfect partner too and are made in limited editions each season. Ours are AW 2016 which had a circus identity, but this season the collection is based around nature. Our current favourite is Miss Alice. We’ve framed ours in grey wood, but they look incredible in eclectic vintage frames or on a wooden print hanger. We also love the monochrome prints from Ella and the Roo which are really beautiful- no need to stick to the rules- a wall covered in tonal prints in different styles can look incredible if you are brave.

Velveteen Babies

Mr Moon Garland from the Velveteen Babies shop

.Bunting from Numero 74 is easy to string up and gives an extra dimension to prints and wallspace, and our garlands are such an easy way to add another dimension to a magical space.

Velveteen Babies blog

Adding detail- use wire lights to add sparkle, cushions to add texture, star bunting and canopy from Numero74,

Textiles and texture lend a luxe feel to any children’s room, so look for a bed cover in velvet or linen in muted shades. Cammomile London have a few beautiful styles and then pile cushions on top- moons, stars, and tassel detail work perfectly. Work with a few different colours otherwise it might feel flat, or inject some metallics if you do, it’ll lift a scheme easily.

Finally, add some accessories with a nod to the feel- perhaps a row of glistening crowns on a shelf, or a vintage vase filled with fairy wands. Molly Meg has such a beautiful selection, and you’ll find the prettiest crowns from Fable Heart, including sweet toy size ones.

Fable Heart
Our Mr Moon decoration is a gorgeous easy addition to a canopy or wall, and we adore this moon coverlet from Amayadeeme.

Warsaw, velveteen babies, Velveteen Babies nursery, Willa's nursery 01/05/2017

Over the last few weeks I’ve been putting together a special space for my 7 month old daughter, Willa. My brief was to create a magical nursery space that would also have many aspects that could grow up with her, rather than a typical ‘nursery’ scheme which would date and become obsolete. My only bugbear is the flooring- an inherited beige carpet that we can’t do much about at the moment!

Velveteen Babies nursery
I particularly wanted to introduce greys and soft blush pink to the scheme, and accents of white, silver and black. For now the walls are painted simple white emulsion, but if we stay in our current house for longer then I have plans to paint the walls a muted pale blush pink. Instead of a wall colour for now, I’ve used Mrs Mighetto circus prints which I sourced from Cissywears and Home and Me which I had framed in painted dark grey wood and stick on silver glitter stars from Little Cloud Kids.

Velveteen Babies
Willa’s Room has sloping ceilings and beams which are painted white, so I strung up Numero74 grey velvet bunting from Scandiminis and I treat Willa (myself) to a grey feather Vita Eos light shade because I knew it would be perfect.

Velveteen Babies
Fortunately the ceilings are still fairly high so that we were able to hang up her grey Numero 74 canopy (also from Scandiminis) on a cup hook inserted into a plug in the ceiling and I strung battery lights from lights4fun inside which are on fine metal thread.

Velveteen Babies nursery
I wanted to find something for the back wall behind Willa’s cot to team up with her sparkly star wall stickers, and I found the perfect white crescent moon light from Lights4fun. It’s ideal as it’s so simple, and can be switched on and off on the side and easily mounted on the wall. I love the simplicity of it- it was just what I wanted for that area of the wall and it’s so dreamy at night.
Lights4fun
Next to Willa’s cot stands a beautiful solid wire basket with lid, sourced from The Modern Nursery, and I’ve used it as a stand for Willa’s Miffy light which has a dimmer switch so creates a lovely soft light in her nursery by night. Other lovely lighting comes from Ginger Rock Designs and is a sparkly blush raindrop that sits on her bookshelves alongside magical bird toys from Ilka Design.

We are really lucky to have an original Victorian fireplace in Willa’s room and it makes for a beautiful focal point. It’s the ideal place to store some of her treasures which I’ve carefully displayed. Her plywood name is by Lala Loves Decor and her wooden circus tent by UP! Warsaw from Emi and Nell (UK stockist) which is a nice match with her Miss Mighetto circus collection framed posters.



Gorgeous Babasac from Mamadesigns in pink hearts- hung on her personalised hanger by Sophia Victoria Joy. 



Willa’s simple cot is just from Ikea, as I’d rather buy her a beautiful bed when she’s old enough, rather than spending a fortune on matchy matchy nursery furniture.


Willa’s rag rug pulls together all the pastel shades and is by Bloomingville interiors. I found it via the Scandinavian Design Centre. The toy cot next to the fireplace is from This Modern Life which is full of Willa’s toy friends. In the fireplace are Willa’s gorgeous pink letter blocks by Too Many PJ’s  (you can order any letter combinations to spell out any phrase or name).

Velveteen Babies Moon decoration


Swan print by Pax and Hart from The Little Baby Company, Louis Ghost chair by Kartell, and luggy toy basket from Olli Ella at This Modern Life. Willa’s crochet name is from Little Cloud Kids and her quilted swan coverlet is by Cam Cam Copenhagen. It’s the perfect dusty pink shade.

Just acorn

Willa has the most beautiful lamb toys from Just Acorn which are immaculately handmade.  They are divine and Barbara from Just Acorn makes just a few different creatures each week to sell. It’s worth following her on Instagram at instagram.com/just_acorn for updates on her magical creations. I don’t think it’ll be long until I’m buying a friend for Mrs Lamb and her sleepy baby!

Just acorn

Beautiful house dolls cot by Jones and Parker toys.

Velveteen Babies

Of course, Willa had to have her own Velveteen Babies garland, so I created this style with her room in mind. Silvery stars and a shiny moon are perfect next to her canopy and aren’t overbearing when there’s so much going on in her scheme. I also bought a beautiful silver moon cushion from Marjorie Minnie and a grey velvet Numero 74 star cushion to sit in her cot to coordinate the scheme. Further cushions from The Velvet Egg tie in with the circus references.


Velveteen Babies



The final flourish will be the addition of this Aro for kids embroidery, which I’ve ordered. I can’t wait for it to arrive!

Modern pastel nursery
Willa’s Room might be based around a colour palette of modern pastel, with the palest of grey walls and a blush pink house shaped paint relief- colour note: Farrow and Ball Pink Ground (a dusty blush) Farrow and Ball pink ground

We may strip the carpets and paint the floor, and use a circular rug in twisted pastel hues from Bloomingville to tie in the scheme and give some warmth and texture.
I sourced our rug from The Scandinavian Design Centre .

Bloomingville RugAlso on the floor will be Willa’s Miffy light which has a lovely dimmer switch which will keep her room cosy at night.

Toy storage for her softies will come in the form of Ferm Living grid bag, which has luxe leather handles and is deep enough to store a generous amount of her squishy toys! It’s also safe for her to empty and pull whilst she’s tiny.

On the walls.

I’ve invested in yet another beautiful print by Pax+Hart (we already have several and I’m a huge fan). This time I’ve gone for the Sunday Swans and have found a really good UK stockist of all the Pax and Hart prints (including the ones trickier to source) and other nursery decor which is The Little Baby Company . I can’t decide to frame it in white or use a wooden magnet hanger, I think I’ll wait until we decorate. 

Below the print I’ll hang one of our rose gold, grey and blush droplet garlands to add subtle sparkle.

Velveteen Babies droplet garland
Not shown will be the front walls which I plan to shelve with Ribba shelves from Ikea for some of Willa’s beautiful story book collection, we have all the collection of the ‘Little people, big dreams’ to read to her.

Pax and HartFor the ceiling light in Willa’s Room I wanted to create a soft cloud effect and sourced a feathery fluffy feminine classic light- I went with the Vita EOS light shade which you can find at Molly Meg in the UK.

Adding some drama and more light to the room comes in the form of looped white festoon garland which I may hang from a wooden hook or peg, or perhaps the wall mountable ring from Ferm Living.

Willa’s existing white ash String Shelves may be hung above the cot to display her pretty knock knacks, keeping it clean and uncluttered.

We will buy a simple white wardrobe from Ikea to store her clothes as there will be enough going on in the room- it’s only a small space so we wanted to keep it clean and bright.

Her simple pale wood cot will be dressed in beautiful sheets and blankets from Avery Row and Mamadesigns and cushions from The Modern Nursery and The Velvet Egg all in white, blush and greys.

Our friends at Tobias and the Bear launched their eagerly anticipated Mr Men collection this week and we couldn’t wait to try on our ‘ Atishoo ‘ sweatshirt (image for the design features in the Mr Sneeze storybook ) which arrived for Barney.

Tobias and the Bear
The collection uses some original retro graphics from the Mr Men archives which are screen printed with safe, water based inks which are designed and made in Britain.

Tobias and the Bear

Hurrah for the new Tobias and the Bear collection!

As you can see, Barney was very happy to get his super soft snuggly sweater on.

We love the whole collection which is filled with splashes of colour, and gentle monochrome styles with comic book strip style outlines of the Mr Men.

Mr Men leggings
We have also been building dens at home, with our colourful play tent from Djeco and have adopted a pet called ‘Billy the Bunny’!

Our new pet!
Easy to put up ( just a few simple plastic poles) and easy to put away, we plugged in some festoon lights and threw our cushion collection in and voila! a fun little place to read books, snuggle down or play make believe. At £49.99 it’s great value for an easy to store play tent.

Too Many PJs
Lovingly created by Erin in London, UK, Too Many Pjs is a gem of a small business with an array of modern handcrafted patchwork products in their Etsy shop. 

Erin’s background is textile design and she’s worked freelance for the likes of Roland Mouret, Joseph and Alexander McQueen so she knows a thing or two!

After the birth of her first child, Erin made a playmat using some of the fabrics she had designed and Too Many PJs was born after so many of her friends started asking for their own version. 

Too many Pjs Velveteen Babies
Erin believes wholeheartedly in making sure her products are of the finest quality whilst marrying a contemporary design concept, and textures and colours that will appeal to the whole family. 

The mix of print, texture and colour is perfect for stimulating and delighting babies, so the patchwork playmates are a fantastic alternative to the garish ones from the high street. 

too many pjs velveteen babies
Erin also handprints canvas and creates minimalist styled cushions and play blocks which are created in her studio. The play blocks are created with lowercase letters and have sides of textured material which are ideal for little ones and the cushions are sold in patchwork style or as a clean minimal design shown above.

We are doing our first drop of superhero goodies into our new webshop later today. Our bestselling postcards, storm clouds, monochrome drops and Superhero garlands will finally be in stock (probably not for long!) 

velveteen babies
I’ve bribed my smallest boy to help me show our monochrome collection off- luckily he was decked in one of his Beau Loves outfits which was ideal! (We can’t wait for the new collection). 

The Superhero garland was one of my very first products, two years ago. Back then it was really tricky to find monochrome kids room accessories so I decided to make my own.. which turned into this business. 

velveteen babies
Making a kids space that brings joy to children and adults alike can be tricky, but by keeping walls and flooring clean and neutral you can add pops of colour and fun accessories. 

velveteen babies
Our Ferm living tent is well loved and a few years old now, but the kids still enjoy playing in it. We’ve adorned ours with our monochrome droplet garland, and added a Mini Willa poster and Superhero garland to break up our grey walls. 

We’ve added pops of bright yellow which works so well with grey and monochrome with a Mama Designs blanket and a yellow lightning bolt light from Ivy Cabin.

smallprint books
‘ Oh please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookshelf on wall.’ – Roald Dahl.

Ok, so we have to compromise, and we do have a TV, but books are a massive part of the boy’s childhood. 

I’ve always been passionate about finding beautiful books, with elements of design which marry with entertaining and spell binding content. 

I was brought up with some beautiful books which I still treasure, and I wanted my children to also learn the joy of reading, listening, and allowing their imagination to take them to magical places. 

smallprint books

Fortunately we stumbled across Smallprint books through Instagram. I’m a fierce advocate of ‘Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself’ – George Bernard Shaw. As we believe fiercely in marrying great design with delighting children, Smallprint Books has exactly the same ethos. 

The website is easy to navigate, and we found the age appropriate sections particularly helpful. 

Smallprint books

Each of the titles on our bookshelves can be found at smallprint books.

Books are easy to chose based on clear pictures and descriptions and one of our first (and most treasured books by Felix) was Pierre and the Maze Detective by Hiro  Kamigaki + IC4Design. The book features 15 full spread intricate illustrations of intricate, magical mazes. It keeps Felix fascinated for ages and he loves discovering things when he sits and reads it with his dad. 

We love it so much that we’ve also bought it as a gift for one of our friends. Smallprint (very convieniently) offer a gift wrap service which made it easy as we were on holiday when I needed a present fix! 

Mamoko

Recently, we ordered a couple of new books and were sent Mamoko which is a different concept for a kids book- which has gone down an absolute storm.

Mamoko is a book without words, where the reader (generally my five year old) becomes the story teller. At the beginning of the book, there is a description of all the characters which can be spotted and followed on each page, each doing funny or nutty things. 

Felix absolutely loves choosing a character to follow and making up his own version of what they are up to. As a parent I love hearing his stories and seeing how absorbed he is when he’s looking at the beautiful and bright illustrations. 

It’s a hit with my husband too and they both enjoy looking at it together and choosing their favourite character to follow (there’s a whole page full so always someone or something new to follow or find). 

smallprint books

It’s even popular with my two year old who loves flicking through the thick pages and looking at all the illustrations!

All of the books you see on our white shelves in the boy’s room are available from Smallprint online and there’s a 10% discount when you sign up for their newsletter. 

Visit smallprint-online.com to take a look and discover some magical books your children (and you) won’t want to put down.

Velveteen Babies Liberty  garland

Our new cloud garland in Liberty Poppy and daisy print hung on grey ribbon with gold blanket stitch

Liberty prints are heavily influencing the world of children’s clothing and interiors, so

I wanted to bring you my round up of all the Liberty print finds in kids design. Classic Liberty print is reaching all facets of children’s interiors and clothing and I can see no sign of this trend abating. Mixing Liberty print with other natural materials such as linen and pure wool is ideal for creating a classic, timeless children’s comfort space.

The Tipi

Liberty Emma and Georgina print eiderdown. From The Tipi £47. 65×95 cm and backed with cotton percale

I have found beautiful bedding from Coco and Wolf and also a high street buy from La Redoute. Both look best teamed with different textures and layers, rather than ‘matchy matchy’. Coco and Wolf with Little B have some beautiful swan cushions and pillowcases so if you just wanted to update existing bedding with a few touches of print, then this would work really well. Also notable from Coco and Wolf with little B are the changing mat covers In a choice of fabrics.

Other innovative ways to bring a touch of print to your nursery or children’s interior are the lovely name wire signs from Little Cloud. These pretty name signs would look adorable hung above a bed head or on a shelf. I’m going to treat the baby to one nearer the time. Also from Little Cloud are the lovely moon wall hangings, they would look perfect in a child’s room with one of our Liberty collection garlands, it’s perfect to mix and match prints as long as the base colours are soft and neutral.

Little Cloud also have a great range of cushions, hair clips and crowns by the amazing Fable Heart and delivery is free within the U.K.

Velveteen Babies Betsy Cloud garland. The raffia bag is from The Tipi and all moccasins throughout are by Wolfie and Willow.

I’ve also fallen in love with many small businesses producing the most lovely Liberty print baby clothing.

My most recent find is Olivier Baby who have a sweet selection of rompers, bloomers, dresses and tops in a choice of prints and linens with accessories such as ribbed tights and knitted bonnets to complement the range. They have a flash sale on some of the range so take a peek!

Another favourite is Coco and Wolf

with a huge range of beautifully made children’s clothing encapsulating the very best of the Liberty print range.

We love the little bloomers and tie top summer suits, perfect for older babies with plenty of leg rolls!

Bonnets are also crucial to Bebe styling too. I’ve already bought a smal stash from Briar Handmade (from Mama Owl in the U.K)  and they come in a wide range of colours, prints and sizes to suit all little heads.

Also noteworthy are the sweet bonnets and appliqué baby vests and T-shirts from Magnificent Stanley. This UK small business is run by Becky who handcrafts each item from her studio in Lewes, East Sussex.

Finally, for a seriously budget friendly take on Liberty print, head to Uniqlo where they have a limited edition Liberty X Uniqlo collection. Girls dresses are from £9.90 and double baby vest sets just £7.90. There are styles for both sexes and also a women’s collection.

There will be limited quantities of each design and print so keep an eye out for our launch announcement.

I wanted to make night feeds as easy as possible with our baby number three when she arrives, because I won’t have the luxury of lazy pajama mornings this time, the school run simply won’t run itself come September sadly. 

With this in mind, I decided to forgoe the usual Moses basket purchase and treat myself to a beautiful Snüzpod. I’d read up on reviews and weighed it up against the Chicco Next to Me which is marginally cheaper, but in my opinion the Snüz came up top. I also wanted something that I could fit my other indulgence in, a ‘Sleepyhead‘ which I ordered from John Lewis. 

Velveteen Babies

Our Snüzpod and our baby girl colour scheme.


I’ve personally chosen muted pastels with grey and cream highlights for our own arrival. 

To fit our grey and blush theme, I have added cushions from The Velvet Egg and Fine Little Day. These compliment my blanket stash from Mama Designs (grey) and the beautiful swan playmat/quilt by Cam Cam Copenhagen which I purchased from The Tipi. It’s backed with softest fine corduroy and is so lovely.

Also from The Tipi is this beautiful woven basket bag, which I will use to store nappies and wipes in our bedroom. I’ve added a little donkey rattle from Roxy Marj (they come as a pack of two, one blush, one black) and I’ll eventually tie them onto the Snüzpod.

Essential Muslins come in the prettiest muted nudes and pinks again from Cam Cam Copenhagen from Mama Owl (they also do lovely greys and mints). 

Our sweet wooden pram and dollies are by Pinch Toys which we usually have displayed on our String shelves at home.

I eventually plan to introduce touches of Liberty print and I’m secretly working on some new garlands using pops of Liberty print for Velveteen Babies. 

The garland in the pictures will be going to it’s new home this week, it was a custom order for someone else.

Whilst my theme is quite feminine, I also wanted to style our Snüzpod in some different ways so that you can get some styling ideas and inspiration, if you are expecting and don’t know the sex then the following ideas are completely gender neutral.

To bring something bright and beautiful, this theme relies on white and grey as a base colour for a nursery. It’s crucial to tone down bright colour pops so it doesn’t become too intense or messy.

Our rainbow garland becomes a crucial backdrop to tie in grey clouds and a bright splash of colour. 

We’ve used bright bedding from Mama Designs and a mono cloud cushion from Farg Form at This Modern Life. 

Our star light is from Gingerrock Designs on Etsy and rainbow suitcase from retrokids.com.  

Add a fun nightlight such as this one by Heico from decobaby.co.uk  and our fun little Velveteen Babies stormcloud is lovely to hang from a doorknob or a hook on the wall.

Finally, for the purists and lovers of monochrome, I’ve put together a genderless scheme that is easy to achieve. 

You could add pops of colour or a highlight colour (mint would work well) to this scheme.

We love the big swaddle Muslins from Modern Burlap at This Modern Life, and have used ours as a sheet (though they have just introduced fitted sheets to their range). 

The knitted blanket is by Farg Form, again from This Modern Life and the little milk bottle rattle by The Milk Collective at The Modern Nursery. 

Our beautiful cloud blanket is by the talented Born n Monday. 

White milk bottle garland is our design and available in our Etsy shop.
