Vintage and romantic looks? Bring them our way! If you love to daydream you might really enjoy this children’s room’s bucolic decoration by Ursula from  Room to Bloom. For this girl’s room, she opted for a soft grey-based style with pink and vintage accents.

Most of the furniture is white, but Ursula added warmth with some natural timber and lots of sweet décor accessories: fairy lights, a sheepskin rug, some prints and beautiful handmade dolls.

Pemberley Rose, Romantic Creations to Wrap Kids’ Dreams

lookbook-boys-pillows-vignette

We are always talking about beautiful vintage rooms. We really love that magic charm present in every single colour and whimsical piece included in it. Pemberley Rose is the perfect example of this spirit. This American brand offers a huge choice of kids’ bedding, fine wall art and wallpapers and toys for kids. All of them show a great European influence plenty of elegance and delicate hints.

Everything started when Erica, the brand’s founder, designed a ballerina for her daughter’s birthday party. Everybody loved it and was then when she started to think about the project. After 10 years working for other companies, she was now ready to create her own project. Later, she realizes that elegant bedding sets for kids were too simple and she started to dream about wrapping children’s dreams with romantic and cute designs.

Motifs like vintage motorcycles, Eiffel Tower or ballet dancers make us remind those Romantic scenes of European poetry and old films. These hand-painted illustrations are an extra chic touch to turn their room into a very special space.

How to Make A Lovely Natural Crown

We really like flower crowns and little ones love them! It’s a great and romantic accessory that can be easily created with our tutorial. Here you will learn how to make them and your girls will look wonderful with them! It’s like wearing some part of nature with you, don’t you think?

How to make a flower crown

DIY-flower-crown2DIY-flower-crown3

We will just need three things (apart from patience):

  • A wire covered by paper in order to adapt the crown to the head.
  • Green adhesive tape. This is crucial to provide it a natural look as the tape will be hidden among stems and leaves.
  • Lots of decorative stems with leaves and flower.

Don’t worry if the first crown is a bit “weird” it’s just a try, relax. To create beautiful flower crowns you  have to learn how to distribute the stems and this can only be done with practice.

At first, fold the wire extremes to create a hook and then fold the wire to get a circle and keep it attached with the extremes. Now, you just have to stick every single stem with the tape trying to create a uniform distribution of stems.  READ MORE
