I’m a huge Living Etc fan and I’ve been wondering for ages whether they have baby and childrens room ideas, and lo and behold I find a gallery full! So I will have to endeavor to scour the net to find my suggestions to match the look.
A feature shelf not only acts as storage but is a great way of accessorising the room and creating a sort of shabby let-me- show-off-some-of-my-favourite things area.
To get a similar look,
Ideal Moments have a selection of coat hooks starting from Â£17.85. The one pictured (right) is the Scroll Shelf and Coat Hooks for Â£45.30.
Urchin also have a wooden wall shelf which comes in both natural (Â£29.99) or in a white wash (Â£24.99).
The Wood Letters Company do a lot of styles from plain to patterned starting from around Â£4.99 for a plain letter. If you want the letter to have a bit of standout on the shelf, you should definitely choose a coloured letter. Or spray it up yourself.
For photo frames, I have a thing about Paperchase (they have a limited amount of their store online) and Zara Home, who by the way, always have good reductions on frames in their sale. Just don’t buy online as they have a Â£19 delivery charge…unless you spend Â£150…
Use etsy to find an unusual picture to decorate the shelf or make your own.
The little knick-knacks on the shelf can easily be recreated in your own taste, so you could get a piece of fabric like the gingham and fill it up with something to weight it and tie a bit of ribbon around it. If you’re going to use a hanger, use a decent one, not a crappy one from the dry cleaners!
You can buy globes from a multitude of places but my two favourite globes ever are from The Conran Shop. I wrote about their Giant World Globe with 180 motifs a few months ago but if the thought of shelling out Â£255 makes your heart seize up, never fear, because they also have a Mini World Globe with 20 motiifs for Â£45 which I featured in the same post.
The perfect place for shabby chic and eclectic accessories is the divine Lapin and Me. It’s like a paradise of kitsch and cool. The bag pictured is Sac a Gouter and it’s a retro print with a vintage doll having a cuppa that’s handmade from cotton. Â£16
