Snuggle up in style with Pappe

As I am once again unpacking all my newborn things for the arrival of baby no.6 it is clear that our hand-me-downs hold many special moments and wonderful memories for our family. Touching the tiny clothes I remember quiet hospital cuddles, the ride home, sneaky snoozes, first walks outside and loads of precious photos and I feel incredibly grateful for the gift of our babies. Like its siblings this baby is sure to be showered with love and will enjoy plenty of pre-loved pieces, but of course some new treasures made it into our nursery too:

Each of our children has its own unique blanket, chosen especially for him/her, that has been with them since day one. Even now they still cherish their blankets, whether it is a favourite bedtime buddy for night time or naps, couch cuddles or just for pretend play. Not knowing the gender of our new addition just yet, this time around I went straight for my favourite neutral colour: classic navy blue…

As soon as I laid eyes on this stunning blanket by luxury designer label Pappe I knew it was meant for me. Not only does the Ottley Twill Blanket (RRP $129.95) ooze class, warmth and style and is gender neutral in colour, it also happens to match our pram perfectly! I think it will be the ideal welcome for our little bundle of joy and I can’t wait to see our darling baby wrapped up in it. Nice bonus: Being reversible you can create two different looks with just one blanket, how awesome is that?

Made from 100% high quality cotton poplin yarn with an eye-catching brushed finish the Ottley blanket is a real stand-out piece, you can expect lots of jealous looks when out and about with Ottley! I think the Italian leather Pappe label really is the cherry on top for this designer blanket. The generous 100 x 75cm size makes it a great choice for walks in the pram, naps in the cot or snuggling on the couch, it will keep the chills at bay wherever you go and is sure to be enjoyed for years to come.

Combining nostalgic charm with modern simplicity it is no wonder style conscious parents all over the globe are rapidly falling in love with Pappe’s timeless range of baby/toddler clothing and accessories. I love how Pappe handpicks the most beautiful cashmere, organic cottons, pure wool blends and tweed fabrics, chosen for their excellent quality, luxurious feel and wonderful durability. Whether you are shopping for your own baby or another special little person in your life, you can count on Pappe to deliver nothing but the very best.

OYOY

When people think of kids bedrooms or playrooms they often think bold, bright colours (and lots of them) are a must, however the truth is that a big colour-overload can be rather overwhelming and even a bit unsettling for little munchkins. Luckily more and more parents are starting to see the charm in soft pastels, neutral tones or black/white monochrome which can be fun, fashionable and relaxing all at once. Check out this gorgeous play rug from Mimimacko:

OYOY rug

Designed in Denmark by talented artist Lotte Fynboe the OYOY range is all about ‘less is more’, celebrating simplicity, function, colour and quality in true Scandinavian style.

The minimalistic black and off white design is classy and totally on trend, fitting in with a modern children’s bedroom, playroom or even the casual corner of a living room.

At the same time the rug doubles up as a fun play mat thanks to the handprinted road map. Get out the cars and trucks, toy animals and miniature houses and watch the kids use their imagination to come up with the most amazing adventures. You have got to love this multi-functional decor piece!

Made from 100% woven cotton this OYOY creation is soft to play on and high in quality, spot clean only is recommended

Wolf & Rita

With just over a month to go until our European holiday I have started packing all the kids suitcases nice and early. Now that we’ve done this trip a few times I know exactly what to bring and also what not to bring, seeing we generally return with way more luggage than we left with. While the majority of that is delicious Dutch food (to soothe my homesickness upon my return) we also bring back lots of beautiful children’s clothes, how can you not when Europe presents you with gems like this…:

Wolf & Rita

Fabulous Portugese fashion label Wolf & Rita creates stunning, high quality children’s wear that is both classical and modern at the same time. With unique and eye catching designs, fabrics, prints and colours it is perfect for little trendsetters with a big personality who don’t mind standing out from the crowd.

Wolf & Rita The Lost Notebook

Designed for girls aged 2-8 years old the whimsical The Lost Notebook collection is made with love in Portugal, using only high quality, locally sourced materials. The collection consists of dresses, blouses and skirts with pretty accessories to complete the look. How special is the Adelaide Stripe Dress with its quirky oversized collar and festive frill details? I have three little girls who would be fighting for this frock!
