Mad March hares decor for kid's rooms.

Here we are on Easter Sunday...stuffed to the gills with chocolate eggs...and freezing in the Arctic temperatures!
But enough doom and's also the last day of March so we've got some delightful mad-hare ideas for the kid's rooms.

These wallpapers have a fun quality and won't date as your child grows....

If that's too much pattern in what can be a small room, stick to small additions like lampshades and soft-furnishings...

Or create your own using fabric finds....


Add beautiful prints and illustrations...for a fairy-tale feel.
We found these wonderful textile hare-heads made by Mister Finch...Wowsers!!
Check out the giant moths...!

...But if your budget is limited....these Maileg toys are perfect!
Just goes to show...hare's are not just for Easter!

Crochet interior mum would be pleased!

Did you know that March is National Craft Month...and includes National Crochet Week...?
Well no, neither did I...until today!
So in honour of this (apparently) easy are a few kid's room ideas to spark your imagination....


We still love these crochet toys and accessories from Miga de Pan...

And who couldn't love the delightful ranges from Anne-Claire Petit...?

Now...! A word of warning....You can overdo this look...!
Thankfully this amazing wall-to-wall crochet creation belongs to a professional....!

If this has inspired you to make something for your kid's room...but, like me, you need some basic goes...

Vintage floral wallpapers in kid's rooms.

I'm sure if I go back through my blog archives...I've looked at this before...but I'm beginning to think these will be the only flowers I see this Spring!
Another blanket of snow is lying over my garden and I fear that my first attempt at growing Spring bulbs will come to nothing...ah well, these designs not only remind me of warmer days to come, but of my childhood home in the early 70's...!

Wall decoration from Dreams and Wishes.

With paint brush in hand I've been busy over the last week or so, creating these murals....

Firstly, a few simple stars were added to an inky background for a celestial nursery...and I love it so much I'm going to do similar in my own bedroom!

And then I went to town in a young boy's room...who loves racing cars..!

 The race car was based on a cartoon image found on the internet...

I'm not a great fan of excessive, detailed murals that overpower a room...but these examples prove simple designs can be just as effective....

One box, one wall, instant storage...!

Let's face it...any inch of space in a kid's room is prime for storage of some sort...and these box shelves are ideal for any size or shape of wall you may have...and you can get them made to suit your own needs at a very reasonable price...perfect!
