A NATURAL LOOK FOR NURSERIES & KIDS ROOMS

naturalkidsroom9

I love nurseries and children’s room decorated with natural materials. Wood and rattan combined with neutral colors such as (off) white, brown and grey create a warm and serene atmosphere. Lighter colors give an airy feel and make a (small) space look bigger. You can add some pop of colors (yellow, blue or dusty pink for example) or use felt animal heads to add a fun element. Here are some lovely room with a natural look to inspire you. And if you would like to create a similar look you can find suggestions for furniture and accessories in this post as well.

DIY PROJECT: GIANT ARM-KNIT BUNNY

This giant arm knit bunny is soooo cute! You can buy a kit that includes everything you need to make one large bunny (except for the stuffing) or you can buy only the pattern. The bunny will make a great friend for a little girl or boy and will look lovely in a nursery or kids room. Unfortunately my son is too old for it ..

THE CUTEST BABY ACCESSORIES FROM DONSJE AMSTERDAM

donsje

This weekend I came across the cutest baby brand called Donsje (Dutch for fluffy). This Amsterdam-based label produces a wide range of adorable booties for babies and toddlers, from new born to two years old, as well as super sweet and stylish accessories for older children. On-trend and with a nostalgic twist, each product has the cute factor and comes beautifully packaged in a bag dangling a tiny bell, making Donsje the perfect gift.

Donsje was founded by Floor van Oosten Slingeland in 2013. When she couldn’t find the perfect shoe for her baby daughter, Floor decided to make her own. Two boys later, she designs irresistible booties and sandals for both girls and boys and has recently added accessories, including hats and bags, to the Donsje range. Donsje’s signature style reflects Floor’s love of vintage shoes, subtle powder shades and high quality natural leathers and craftsmanship. She is inspired by the beautiful illustrations in the books she reads to her children and by the flowers they pick, the crafts they make and the toys they love. It’s a truly family affair. Little daughter Vosse had the final say on which animals made the cut for Donsje’s bestselling Kapi animal booties and bags. Floor’s sons have also been put to work road testing the durability of Donsje shoes and ensuring they are toddler-proof!

Their adorable items are available from their site. In the US Donsje is available from Barneys.
