"Small ideas, big effects"

I love funny accessories in the kidsroom that makes a child's room unique. Like the photo circulating around the Internet of the Ikea spice rack which is used often in children's bedrooms as a bookshelf. Whether the additional decorative edge that you can sew yourself on the bottom of the Ikea curtains (idea of the New House Project) mentioned earlier on Bkids.

I like to use small wall stickers, like these apple stickers (available at HikjeinHuis) on furniture and those small suitcases. It makes an old vintage suitcase more modern a new suitcase more personal. The secret of an original children's room is to add genuine ideas and extraordinarily accessories.


With a specific theme in mind you gather stuff to decorate the kidsroom. For example, embroidery. For my own daughter, Jula, I went looking for embroidered items for her bedroom. I found a great embroidered strip and fixed it to the wall above the dresser (see top image). Another good idea for the girl's bedroom is to use old embroidery patterns as a wallpaper, which I saw in a shop in Amsterdam. The embroidered bag we brought from Thailand (see picture below).

    Those accessories above I bet any kids would love. I really enjoy seeing rooms that are not boring or they look like rooms out of walmart. Your styles above show diversity thanks for sharing.

Let’s chat with embroidery artist Celeste Johnston about how she turned her passion into a professional career and the interesting path that led her to it.

The Bamburgh Cardigan

Head to the North East of England until your reach the land of ancient castles, historic churches and rugged moorlands, and you will arrive in fibre artist Joanne Storie's homeland. This iconic landscape (think Hogwarts) is where she creates her signature BareFaced Yarns - a perfect mix of sheep wool and baby Alpaca - that strongly reflects the rich cultural heritage of the region.

Crack a smile

“Darling, crack a smile”... How often have you had that said to you while you were minding your own business? Photographer Mia Mala McDonald and needlwork artist Catherine Tipping had enough of this approach. So they created the joint exhibition Why Doesn’t She Crack A Smile?
