Jacob and Bonomi - fresh designs

We mothers are a creative bunch, often not realising our creative potential until motherhood comes along. I know this was the case for me with Little Light House, and it was also the case for Emma Gordon of Jacob & Bonomi . This Australian business specialises in quality, modern designs for children's bed linen. Emma recognised the need for more options in kids' bedding after her son moved from crib to cot and she wasn't given enough choice from the existing brands.

Shown above left is their gorgeous "Tree of Life" single bed doona set (rrp $120), and above right is their delightful "Little Pirate" cot set (rrp $62). Jacob & Bonomi offer a wonderful range of coordinating accessories for their designs, such as this plush cot blanket (shown below). Me thinks this "Bright Star" blanket might be the perfect companion to our Little Light House "Stars" lampshade!! Check out Jacob & Bonomi for a fresh and modern approach to your kids' rooms!

Wonderfully nautical

There is something very appealing about all things nautical. I love the crisp, clean colours of nautical decor teamed with gorgeous timber furniture. If, like me, you yearn for a house on the water, and your ideal holiday is one spent on the coast somewhere - then perhaps browsing around will tantalise your senses! Although based in the UK, they have a wonderful collection of homewares for any of the rooms in your house (see images above for a sample). Perfect for boy's bedrooms, the nautical colours/theme is a very masculine look which can grow with them as they grow older.

Take a look at and gain some inspiration for your nautical decorating style. Of course, we have the perfect lampshades to coordinate with the nautical room!
