The-Sunday-Times-Home-children's-bedroom-Little-Big-Bell.jpg

It was an honour last weekend to have my son’s bedroom featured on the front cover of the Sunday Times newspaper – Home section.

It was written by Katrina Burroughs, on Unisex style in children’s bedroom.

To quote Katrina “it was about the decor wars that are gently waged between adults and their offspring – and between adults and the purveyors of pink and blue designs –  and how the bill payers can triumph, creating child friendly yet stylish interiors that satisfy all parties.”

I styled two gender neutral rooms for the feature. The above photo was used. The other room was styled in a monochrome palette, revealed below.

Not sure if you remembered my son’s recent bedroom Spring refresh above? It was very blue.

I’ve fine tuned it to yellow and mint for the unisex feature.

Katrina’s comment in the Sunday Times made me smile. Here it is “Her taste is understated, chic, design-savvy – good luck getting her to admit a novelty duvet into her house.”

Yes, the whole issue around novelty duvets! I’ve been lucky so far with the latter, my children have not really requested them and we have worked collaboratively to achieve the look in their rooms.

Here’s a list of where everything is from:

The duvet cover is from Hay; the linen mint ombre throw is from Designer’s Guild; the bed is from Little White company; the prints are by Fine Little Day and Corby Tindersticks; the chevron green rug is from Urban Outfitters; the side table is Componibili by Kartell; the mint leaf lamp is by Muuto.

This striped cushion in yellow and blue is by Kangan Arora, a recent purchase from Heals. That sweet little fella sitting on the bed is by Lucky Boy Sunday.

Doo-Wop-lights-Louis-Poulsen-Little-Big-Bell-blog

En route to the Tivoli gardens in Copenhagen yesterday, I came across the Danish Design Centre. Despite there being no exhibition showing, the centre itself was a rich resource of design.

As I entered, the colourful Doo-Wop lights by Louis Poulsen caught my eye. It was interesting to find out that these lights were originally produced in the 1950s for the Navy. They have now been updated in colours in line with current trends.

In the far end of the centre was this magazine display called Window designed by Jonas Forsman. It is apparently light weight and sound absorbent. If I had a wall that wide, this could be a perfect way to display all those design magazines slowly piling up at home.

Scattered on the floor, were these colourful poufs called Rock’d designed by Eelco Voogd, manufactured by Abstracta, perfect for a library or children’s play area.

For a while now, I have been coveting the Block Table trolley above. It is designed by Simon Legald for Normann Copenhagen. Seeing it in that Mint green made me swoon all the more. I hear that a Coral colour is due out soon. The choice will become more difficult! Perfectly complimenting and sitting on top of the table is the Krenit Bowl, also by Normann Copenhagen.

The grey round coffee table is called the Tablo, designed by Nicholai Wiig Hansen, also for Normann Copenhagen. They come in a range of colours and the new season will see a square design.

Not sure why but this seating area transports me back to the time when I swam in the calm clear waters of Seychelles. Okay, not quite Seychelles, but certainly looks peaceful and calming. This modular seating area is called Skyline by Howe, perfect for an office space and so beautifully complimented by the overhanging Louis Poulsen lamps.

These industrial style black bell lamps are perfect for this high ceilinged, light filled area with stairs leading to the centre’s office space. I’m not sure who they are by, any ideas?

Lining this long Grip table system designed by Troels Grum-Schwensen are classic chairs in black, by none other than  Arne Jacobsen, vanguard of Danish design.

Surrounding the table is an interesting and innovative cardboard soft wall partition by Molo.

Hope you enjoyed this post. There will be more to come from Copenhagen. Loving this city so much. Have a wonderful week all. x
