There is always a lot of attention given to decorating your childs nursery but what happens as they get older?
Bedrooms need to morph and grow with your child and there are some amazing products out there to please everyone from toddler to teen. So I decided that this week we will explore some great examples of childrens decor, items that are age relevant, inspiring and über cool.
First up, space themed items for a male toddler/tween room that will be out of this world. Dream big!

Shibori is a Japanese term for Tie-dyeing fabric. The process involves using twists, stitches or folds to create intricate patterns and designs. Traditionally the Japanese used Indigo dyes to create the Shibori patterns, so generally you will find pieces in these deep inky blues which I just adore (My current colour obsession!)
Australian company Shibori have brought these ancient techniques and applied them to modern homewares, clothing and artworks. The lovely duo, Pepa and Karen, also teach workshops to share the various techniques involved in making a Shibori piece, keeping the tradition alive so to speak!
Below are some examples of this style which may inspire you to get a little creative and try your hand at creating your own original Shibori item.
Be brave! Experiment with colour too as Little Dandelion did with this stunning collaboration with Shibori.

Whether you need some last-minute gifts or just love to really present your present, then Washi tape should be your new BFF.
Washi tape is a japanese paper or wood pulp tape that is known for its durability, strength and diversity. Traditionally it is used throughout Japanese crafts but recently Washi has taken the world by storm with the introduction of many amazing colours, patterns and designs. With so many ways to use washi tape it is no wonder everyone has gone craft crazy.
Below are some brilliant ideas for presents and packaging, so get creative and see what you can come up with! Washi tape is available in Australia through Lark, The Minimalist or Etsy!
