Major Mini Love – Zara May’14

We’ve got major love for the May 14’ Mini Lookbook from Zara. The beautifully styled collection has a summer loving, sand-between-your-toes type of feeling and we can’t get enough...

Inspired by the sea, it includes fun pieces adorned with paper boats, nautical lines and fish prints, along with delicate florals and ice cream cones for the little ladies.

There’s a lot to love about the entire collection, but some of our favourite pieces are the sassy pint-sized separates, the boat shoes and the gorgeous white knitted sunsuit.

Zara’s Mini May 2014 Collection is available in stores now. Check out the full look book here.

The Summer House

We want to strap on a pair of these delightful booties and run off to play in the toadstools. Slowly handcrafted with all natural materials, this soft range of baby shoes from The Summer House is designed to be casually cool, but practical and beyond trends...

Each hairclip, shoelace and pair of shoes is made with absolute love, care and pride by a very bright button, Zaida Martin, the design and creator of The Summer House.

Zaida says she uses her “hands and soul, mind and heart to create beautiful, simple and functional crafts” and by looking at the amazing attention to detail displayed in each one of her products, we tend to believe her. Each piece has taken our breath away.

In The Summer House you will find individually handcrafted pieces that evoke delicacy, sensitivity, uniqueness and a timeless charm. Their website is well worth stopping by.

Bugaboo x Andy Warhol

Sometimes it’s the most unexpected partnerships that work the best. Like the collaboration between Bugaboo and The Andy Warhol Foundation, which has resulted with a complete Bugaboo Cameleon 3 as well as the footmuff and seat liner being festooned with Warhol’s legendary Banana print from 1966...

The striking yellow banana on the black chassis of the Bugaboo brings to life a serious rock n’ roll attitude usually reserved for art galleries or album covers. We just love it! The new collection will be available in stores worldwide from May 1, 2014. Check out bugaboo.com for more information.

Little Spaces - Thea's Room

For the birth of her first child, blogger Emma Highfield wanted to create a space that would grow with her little girl. Choosing to stay away from the typical girly look, Emma decided to keep the colours neutral, bringing in pops of peach and geometric monochrome as the accents. She either made or created a lot of the items that fill the room, including painting the very cool feature wall and sewing lovely patterned bunting. The outcome as I am sure you will agree is simply divine...

"Thea is two and a half weeks old, our wee darling girl that we cannot wait to make memories with and watch her grow". And filled with so many personal touches this gorgeous room is perfect place to fill with those memories.

We caught up with Emma to find our more about Thea's gorgeous room...
What sort of space were you trying to create when setting up Thea's room?
I wanted to create a fun and flexible space that wasn't too 'girly', I am not much of a 'pink' girl myself so I wanted the nursery to be semi gender neutral. Her room is designed to be easy adapted as she develops her own tastes and preferences and is hopefully a space she will love when she gets a bit older.

What is your favourite thing in Thea's room?
Her chalkboard wardrobe doors, I hope she will enjoy endless creative play drawing all over these!

Where did you collect most of the pieces in her room?
Most of the pieces in her room were purchased online via NZ homeware and baby stores such as Jamie Kay, Citta Design, White Fox & Co, Lorna Love and Superette.

As she grows up, what things will you add to help the room grow with her?
My Hubby is already making a bookcase which will double as low level shelving and I have a big toy box waiting to be re-painted.

To find out more information on this gorgeous room head over to Emma's lovely blog Beau Monde Mama.
