As I am busy preparing the nursery for our new arrival I am getting more and more excited about meeting this baby. This is the first time I can really create my dream nursery before the baby arrives, when the twins were born we lived in a rental property so we were unable to do much to the room and when miss 2 was born she came a few weeks early and we were still in the middle of renovating so there wasn’t even a room for her! Not this time, this time it is going to be perfect and ready for whenever he/she comes!

Personally I like nurseries to be simple so the few pieces that you do choose need to be absolutely perfect. Obviously the furniture counts for a lot but not any less important (and my favourite nursery component) is the linen. A cot or bassinet made with the right bed linen can really turn your nursery into something amazing so don’t just settle for the first set you find at your local shopping centre. Take a look at the fabulous Kate Lauren Designs range, I can promise you you’re in for a special treat.

Kate Lauren Designs is an Australian label, designed by talented mum Julie who clearly has an eye for beautiful colours, timeless patterns and gorgeous fabrics. The result is a divine range of bed linen and accessories that will last well past the baby stage. From cots to single beds, sheets to comforters, cushions to lamp shades and more, Kate Lauren Designs has got your complete nursery or kids bedroom covered.

Creating a designer bedroom may sound tricky but with Kate Lauren Designs it is actually really easy. Just browse the different collections and when you’ve found your dream look you simply select all the individual pieces to suit your needs. They are already grouped together for your convenience, it doesn’t get much easier than that! My boys favourite is the William James Collection and my girls favourite the Chloe Harper Collection (absolutely stunning!), what about you?

Sweet dreams with Whimsy

Ofcourse I am sad to be leaving my family next week so I am trying to cheer myself up by thinking of some of the happy and exciting things ahead of us. Some are a little further away and others will be waiting for us when we get home, like two beautiful new Whimsy quilt cover sets from Little Obsessions that I preordered back in July. I have no doubt they will bring big smiles to the faces of my little ladies!

Eventually our two girls will be sharing a bedroom and I can already picture their beds made up with these colourful Lullaby Quilt Covers, aren’t they just divine? I just love the bright tones on the crisp white background, with so many gorgeous colours I will have no trouble finding decorative pieces to match. The Whimsy bedlinen range is designed right here in Australia and made of 225 thread count polyester cotton.

If your daughter is totally crazy about everything pink, fluffy and girly this Pink Floret Quilt Cover Set might just be what you are looking for to complete her perfect bedroom. Surely it doesn’t get much sweeter than this! Each quilt cover set ($109.95) contains a single bed quilt cover with matching pillow case, there are currently six different Whimsy designs available in store.

At Little Obsessions they know exactly what girls AND boys like so they also stock some very stylish Whimsy bedlinen sets for hip little dudes. After his very first train ride this week I think my boy would most like the Trains design, but there is a style for everyone with more adventurous dreams to be enjoyed under the cool Dinosaurs, Planes and Robots prints.
