By the Light of a Mushroom

There is no sweeter way to drift off to sleep than with the flickering light of fairy house watching over you. These adorable lamps from Little Belle will fill a room with magic and send you off to dreamland with a smile...

New Zealand based designer, Laura Burbery, is inspired by the imagination of her young daughter. She decided to create a collection of nightlights with a contemporary twist that appeal to both children and design minded parents.

Little Belle nightlights emit a gentle amber glow through the window, door and chimney. The light mimics a candle with a soothing flickering effect that can be safely left on all night.

Hand crafted to the highest standard, the lamps are beautifully made and draw on the nostalgia of traditional nightlights we had as children.

A true keepsake, the lamps are as much of a pleasure to give, as they are to receive. Check out the full range of lamps over at Little Belle.

Mister Bandit

Don’t you just love it when you stumble across a new brand that is just totally in synch with your taste? Those occasions where you put everything in the store on your mental wish list and promise yourself that one day you will have it all. Well that brand for us right now is Mister Bandit...

Mister Bandit was born on the roads of the Wild West of the United States of America. After 7 years living in California, designer Jennifer Jane moved home to France after the birth of her nephew.

As she was driving cross-country through the U.S of A one last time, exploring the serene and incredibly expansive landscape of America, she decided to create and launch her own label. Just like that.

The gorgeous bohemian brand was inspired by the pioneer era, a time when things were crafted from raw materials. Coupling authentic design with gorgeous fabrics sourced from France, Italy and Japan, the brand carries a beautiful and original aesthetic.

We are head over heels in love with the intrinsic patterns, natural textures and beautiful indigo hues. Each product is designed and handmade by Jennifer herself, using locally sourced vintage fabrics to ensure everything is 100% original and the highest of quality.

But don’t just take our word for it, make your own mini road trip over to the Mister Bandit website and explore the full range for yourself. Enjoy!

Ship Shape

When it comes to bringing your walls to life, there is a lot you can do. From prints, to artwork and bunting and more. But one little gem you cannot forget is a beautiful wall hanging from Twenty One Fifteen...

Made with such a simple combination of wire and gorgeous fabric coverings, these clever creations are twisted into a variety of shapes to suit a range of bedroom styles and themes. From rad anchors for little pirates to clouds and moons for the little dreamers, there is something for every personality.

We love how delicately they sit on the wall (but don’t despair they are sturdy as), and offer a lighter option than a full print hanging. It’s quite amazing how a simple shape can transform a bare wall.

Head over to the Twenty One Fifteen website to see which of these gorgeous creations would look good hanging out with you. We also stock a range of these lovely creations at The Gathered Store.
