Amazing bedding

Chocolate bed cover

eraser pillowcase

Like the whole (female?) world, I am getting sucked into Pinterest more each day: it's very beguiling to have beautiful products floated in front of your eyes, sourced by like-minded souls all around the globe.

Now, by the time I've seen stuff on there, I'm aware that half Babygadget's readership probably has, too, so I've mostly held off from featuring them... but these bedcovers were just too great to skip.

From Aussie company Bedtoppings, each set has real humour and charm about it, as you can see. As well as the chocolate and pencil set shown (pencils currently out of stock), there is a sardine tin and a garden.

In Aus, it seems duvets are known as 'doonas': Designer and business owner Sophie Farquhar always dreamt of sleeping on a piece of toast with a buttered sheet and tin spaghetti doona. We have to admire that kind of ambition.

That pencil crayons motif is high on my wishlist - someone give us all a shout when it's back in stock!

Ferm Living "The Village" wallpaper

the village wallpaper

Ferm Living are making a real name for themselves with kids' wallpaper that's strikingly different from anything you'll find with the major brands.

I'd be seriously happy living with any one of their children's designs, but this design, The Village, actually makes me gasp with joy.

Always a sucker for little houses, I go extra wild for nostalgic colour combos - so for me, this has it all. But as with all exceptional wall-hangings, you do have to pay for individuality: Euro 67.50 (approx US $93) per roll, in this case.

Primary colours clock

primary clock

Not only designed with kids in mind, the Primary clock from Sono Design (£34.99) would nonetheless fit in very nicely with any brightly-coloured kids' room.

Find worldwide stockists on Sono Design's site; they include Modcloth in the US.

Helen Dardik alphabet print

Helen Dardik alphabet

Given that we're nuts about alphabets, and lap up everything Helen Dardik does, is it any wonder we practically fell over when we came across this print?

Just $25.00 from her Etsy store makes it a bargain in my book. Why, that's less than a dollar a letter.

London cushions from Michelle Mason

London Market cushion

London Piccadilly cushion


If you're looking for some really jolly cushions for your nursery, look no further than Michelle Mason. She's on a London jag at the moment, it seems, with this whole range of co-ordinating scenes that remind me a little bit of some of my favourite illustrators.

Something in the subject matter and busy-ness is redolent of both Miroslav Sasek's This is London, and Richard Scarry's Busy Busy World.

Note the pom-poms too - what kid doesn't love a bit of frou-frou? There's just one word for them, neatly summed up by this cushion from another Michelle Mason range...

BlaBla Kids cushions

BlaBla cushion

BlaBla cushion

Aww... when a kid really needs a cuddle but also needs some alone time, turn to these exquisite and comical BlaBla kids cushions. Surely no-one could stay sad for long, confronted with such an eccentric little bowler hat, or a sympathetic tear, and arms just made for looping through. $42 each.

Soft Cities

Soft Cities blanket map - day

Soft Cities blanket map - night

I think I've found the ultimate birth gift - a Softcities blanket. These gorgeous fleece blankets can depict a map of the place of your choosing, anywhere in the world, in one of two colourways.

You can also plonk markers down to indicate, say, where the family live, their favourite spot for a strol, or where the baby was born (be wise, and commission that one *after* the birth, though - births don't always go as planned).

Now and again, products come up that make writing for Babygadget a very expensive job indeed, and this is definitely one of them. In trying to decide whether a pink or blue blanket depicting my neighbourhood would be cooler, I came to the conclusion they both would. They're $175 a piece, so I can't order lightly, but I do think they're totally beautiful and, if you can afford them, worth every cent.

Van Vilt for felt

vanvilt spotted blanket

vanvilt.jpg

Van Vilt is a Dutch company which makes felted products, including blankets, lampshades, baskets and cushions to old, traditional methods.

I like the large polka dots (€75) best: it's great to have a modern-seeming clean pattern contrasting with the fuzzy felt. if you're more of a traditionalist, the alphabet design (€88) brings old cross-stitch samplers to mind. They'll also customise blankets with names.

I love that this basket (€70) is available in 'brown, and other sheep tones'.

More cloud lamp options

Cloud-Lamp

Remember the cloud lamp we featured a couple of weeks ago? Well, Swiss Miss has topped it with her find of this (to my mind, anyway) superior version from Zhao Liping (Google translated version of the page here).

Whiter, smoother, puffier, and altogether more suited to a child's room, you just have to think 'Magritte'. Plus, they're available as pendant or freestanding lights. I wish I could figure out if they're actually for sale because I'd buy one like a shot - and not for my daughter's room, either.

Things

Things

"Things" seems like a pretty broad topic to try to cover within a single illustration, but I have to say Aussie design company Blink have made a pretty good fist of it with this print. With everything from 'pyramid' to 'ballerina' covered, there's plenty for youngsters to look at.

Blink sell internationally: you can find a list of stockists on their website.
