KIDS WEEK - decole

today is the grand finale of kids week which has actually lasted a fortnight because it has been such an interesting subject with so much to report on. im posting lots today to finish off all the childrens designs ive had saved up, and to give you plenty to study whilst im away on holiday next week. i'll be back on 2nd april with a report from london design week. so today im kicking off with some more japanese cute and you cant really feature japanese childrens design without mentioning decole. i love looking at these fun designs, i find the best places to view them are chocoa, page room and the decole flickr group.

KIDS WEEK - bedlinen

boodalee have the most fantastic modernbedlinen prints, and sweetly describe themselves as 'big designs for little dreamers'. created and run by mother of two jeanice skvaril who realised after her son grew out of his nursery bedlinen she would struggle to find the right designs for his 'big boy' bed. so she created boodalee and has launched three ranges so far : city, circus, and trees.
