About Velveteen Babies

about

Hello!

I’m Coral, Mother, designer, maker, creator, stylist, jack of all trades and passionate about design in all facets of our family life.

I live in Yorkshire, England with my husband and three small, loud and boisterous children, Felix (6), Barnaby (3) and Willa ( nearly 1) and run a children’s design brand called Velveteen Babies. We have recently moved to a mid century house which we are renovating to create an inspiring new family home, so keep an eye out for some before and after posts on the blog as I have some exciting schemes planned for the children’s rooms.

Back in 2011 when I first became a Mother, I made a decision that having children need not mean a compromise on style, and I made it my mission to both source and produce playful, design-led products for my family with an aesthetic we’d all love. I enjoyed finding these brands so much that I decided to write about my discoveries in this blog.

Instagram became a constant companion during the years of being pregnant and raising three small people. I created both a personal account to visually collate captures of my growing family and interior projects, and my other account Velveteen Babies has become my full time employment, and there’s never a moment to spare. Live is wonderfully full and I’m embracing it with both my hands and a full heart.
