A room for two little girls

A Pretty Bedroom for  two Girls

One of my favourite customers who I have known for years invited me over last week to see the end result of us re-doing her two daughters room. The challange here was originally the curtains were quite dark and the room seemed smaller and darker due to this .We chose white beds with low ends to help largen and lighten the room , Complimentary linens from Red Plum and some lovely art work from the very clever Sprout Gallery and Blue paw and One of our signature Rugs plus some new curtains by our in house curtain makerand Volia the rooms is bigger , brighter and Lighter and Oh so pretty ...

I asked Michelle from Sprout Galllery to come up with a pretty art  design  in pinks and greens to compliment this theme and look what she came up with just Gorgeous isn't it ... She is SSOOOOO Talented
Here are the blue paw art works as well 

Here is another room shot what do you think ladies?

Jacob and Banomi Linen

Hi everyone sorry for the very long absence !!!
I am back now after visiting lots of different baby and children's stores in the UK, USA and Canada and found lovely new and fresh companies for all of My First Room  loyal customers.
I have loads of stories to tell and new linen ranges coming our way including our own brand which I am excited about . 
But first right here in Oz....

 I am so excited with what we have right here in Australia. I  met with the lovely Emma Gordon of Jacob and Banomi a couple of years ago when she was first starting out she showed me samples and sketeches of her range and I was very impressed my good friends Siobhan from Cocolini  and Jess from Kids Interior Designs were also there and we had a fun morning going through ideas with Emma and playing with her gorgeous daughter . I was so thrilled when I saw her new designs of the  little traveller doona set and cot linen. We had discussed what a great combination red, navy and gray make and I am sure you will agree it is just stunning !!! Well done Emma !!! Think I will be getting these for my two boys ...
Promise I will be back soon . Thanks for waiting

Putting it all together

Recently myself and three other ladies as passionate about children’s interiors as myself displayed our products at a private showing during the Melbourne gift fair. I was joined by Sura, owner of Red Plum Linen, Emma owner of Branberry Blankets and Jessica owner of Kids interiors. We all stayed, with the exception of Jess who lives in Melbourne, in a gorgeous 3 bedroom apt in Southbank for 5 nights and had so much fun.

We invited lots of retail shops from across Australia to come and look at the linen, blankets, wall art and rugs which we set up on 2 cots and 6 beds, one of which was a Sunbury Bed which we brought down from Brisbane. We had really positive feedback and had loads of fun and laughs alongside a bit of champagne of an evening. Here are some shots … I hope you like them

Gorgeous rugs

So very sorry for my huge absence on my blog. I have been really busy with my new venture, my boys and of course the shop... 
I am now the Australian and New Zealand distributor for an International Rug company. 
It all started a few years ago when I became really frustrated with the lack of choice in Australia of beautiful children’s rugs. The only ones I could see were quite gaudy and I wanted something unique. So I basically searched the world for beautiful children’s rugs and started importing them exclusively now I am also selling them to other baby and interior shops around Australia.
I am also in the process of designing some patterns with Red Plum Linen to match back with their gorgeous fabrics and it is all very exciting. Here are some of my favourite combinations so far.
For the girls:

The butterfly paisley rug teams perfectly with Red Plum’s confetti pink, 
The pink polka dot rug with their candy spot,
candy stripe and the bird tree rugs with their entire girls range really . 
The rugs also work with Lullaby Linen as well.
In bloom coordinates well with their flower pot original range and coco pink and chico bai with perfectly with their peony rose range. The pink damask also looks wonderful too!!
For the boys
Red plum’s blue spot looks great with the blue polka dot rug or blue stripe rug,
The mini star rug goes back with the red plum red or navy star 
 and the Mariner rug is perfect for Lullaby’s range called 'in the navy'
I will keep you updated with new styles that are arriving weekly .
