Regardless of the room I'm styling I always have fun in the process. It helps that I love all of the products I work with. I wouldn't have it any other way. But there's so much more to it than just arranging things in a pretty flatlay and taking a quick snap. A lot of effort goes in to the overall composition, and in particular the kids rooms are a real joy to work in. I love telling the boys their new products have arrived in the post, and seeing their faces light up when they get home from school to see how I've transformed their rooms. Whenever a brand approaches me about collaborating together, I show the kids the range of products and let them choose their favourite designs. Recently we had the pleasure of doing so with a couple of fantastic children's companies.
The first is by Sofie Jensen, a Copenhagen-based studio specialising in graphic-art and illustration. Established in 2012 by architect and design couple Sofie Elkjær Jensen and Søren Nersting, the studio produces original work that has gained a reputation for its quality and playful nature. Driven by a wish to make their surroundings more beautiful, the couple create graphic art based in architecture, with Sofie responsible for the graphic work and Søren providing conceptual input as well as managing the web and commercial aspects of the business. From graphic architectural illustrations to quirky hand drawings and charming graphic for kids, my boys were as excited as I was when I showed them the collections!
Marlow chose the gorgeous A Mouse in a House poster from the new by Sofie Jensen Kids range. As you can see, it fits in perfectly on this side of his room. The new Toys paper storage bag is from the wonderful Stockholm-based store Tellkiddo. They also sent me some cute postcards which you can see popping up in the kids rooms here and there.
Roman chose A Fox in a Box, which I plan to hang it on a wall in his room. The spot is a little tricky to photograph, so for the purpose of this post it's leaned up against the wall in good view.
Roman also fell in love with the by Sofie Jensen Little House Series. As a budding little artist who is constantly 'doodling', it is easy to see why these playful illustrations really appealed to him. He chose the delightful prints Little House in Trouble and Little House in Tears, now sitting side by side on his bedroom shelf.
The gorgeous storage bags that feature in most of the photos are from Paris based children's brand Mon Petite Zoréol. They come in two sizes, in a range of monochrome designs. We love our Mini Croix and Mini Gribouillage. They also make the most gorgeous wooden garlands, one of which hangs above Marlow's desk. Today I noticed they have started to introduce some very cute kids clothes to their collection, so I may have to pop back for another look!
