Inspiration board: Slides and swings June 24 2014, 0 Comments
We've had some great feedback from some of you after our blog post on playrooms, so we thought that we'd share a few more of our feather the nest favourites. Pinterest is full of creative and inspiring ways to decorate your kid's bedrooms, and we've noticed a recent trend where swings and slides are being brought inside and into kids bedrooms and playrooms. We love them. Click on images for links xx
Inspiration board: Playrooms June 03 2014, 0 Comments
As much as I love that our kids enjoy actively setting up imaginary shops, or building train tracks that run the length of our house, there are some afternoons where I wish that I could shut the door and hide the mess that is ensues. I've often thought how great it would be to have a kids playroom where they could leave their imagined worlds set up, all ready to go for tomorrow's dreaming. I'm inspired by all of the below, and hopefully one day, we'll have enough room to make a playroom a reality. Until then, we'll continue with our 'let's just tidy up at the end of each day' mantra.

Inspiration: A beautiful nursery for a new arrival... February 13 2014, 0 Comments
One of the best things about social media is it's ability to introduce you to new products, people and blogs. We came across this gorgeous nursery this morning and thought that you'd all agree that it was one of the most beautiful spaces we've seen in a long time. Emma, at Beau Monde Mama, is based in New Zealand and has kindly provided notes on where she sourced all of the items she's used. We love the peachy tones and we're pretty impressed with the news that Emma created the feature wall in this room herself!

Some of the feather the nest team are off to New York in a few weeks, on the hunt for some new products to add to our feather the nest family of suppliers. I hope that the weather warms up as it looks freezing over there at the moment.
The buzz in our office around the upcoming New York trip had me searching for travel inspiration for kid's rooms on Pinterest this morning. One trend that caught my eye was the use of large maps as art in kids' rooms. There's something magical about the adventures that await a new life and maps are a great way to encourage little people's imaginations. Below are a few of my favourite...
