Add Creativity And Fun To Your Kids Room With Rowen & Wren

Decorative Ideas for your Nursery

Rowen-and-Wren

Rowen and Wren have one of the most unique designs in home decorating and are very successful because they have such a great passion for their work. They have a range of products that includes furniture, mirrors, lighting, pillows and cushions, and a wide variety of accessories. Even though they create beautiful designs for the entire home, some of their best designs are found in the nursery.

In their line of children’s furniture that are perfectly designed to fit little bodies, there are some beautiful pieces of furniture in the in the form of an almost indestructible Formica chair that comes in powder blue, pumpkin orange, petal pink, and snow white. These adorable little chairs are easily stacked and are perfect for children aged three and up.

Then when they are through playing and ready for their afternoon nap, take a look at their eiderdown quilts and pillow sets in an adorable pepper or poppy print. The eiderdown can be used as a blanket, duvet, or even a play mat and it’s warm, comfortable, and very soft.

Once the kids are up and ready to go play again, there are some adorable knitted “pets” that are soft and cuddly and each has their very own characteristics. These include Suzette the Cat, Claire the Cow, Bandit the Raccoon, and Socks the Fox. Each comes with a story about their character and they are sure to become a long time, beloved companion to the little tykes.

When the kids get just a bit older, Rowen and Wren have some great puzzles that are perfect for little hands, as well as several characters that serve as chop and serve boards that will be a great inspiration to the little chefs, and an adorable lamb book holder for the little ones who love books.

Cool Mobiles for your Nursery

Puka Puka Design

Puka-Puka-Mobiles

Babies aren’t easy to entertain. They can look at an object for only so long before they lose interest. But one product has kept them spellbound for decades now. Baby mobiles are used to soothe and entertain babies during their first few months of life. This is the stage where neonates spend most of their time in their cribs.

How do they work?

Newborn babies do not have very good vision. They can only discern blurry shapes and figures because they are nearsighted. It is only after the third month of life that most babies begin to recognize familiar faces. Before that time, they are nearly purblind. However, they can make out motion. They can tell if an object, no matter how fuzzy it may be, is moving. This is the genius of the baby mobile.

Lying on her back after a nap or just before one, a baby looks up and sees a slowing moving object. See might not be able to identify the shapes, patterns, or designs on this contraption, but she can tell that it is moving and that, for her, is intriguing. It is no wonder baby mobiles are one of the most popular baby nursery accessories.

Puka Puka Design is an Australian brand specialized in designing very cool and modern mobiles.

Puka puka in Japanese means something floating gently in space. Nina Still is the designer behind Puka Puka, she studied architecture and her new love is making kinetic mobiles. Each mobile is a unique handcrafted object.

They can be used as decorative pieces in the house, you don’t need to have a baby to buy one!

I really can’t tell which one is my favourite, they are all so gorgeous!

Have a look at Puka Puka website, which mobile is your favourite?

Smart Australian Design: Bower & Beyond

Rocking Eggs and Animals!

Rocking-Egg-BowerBeyond

If asked, most parents would tell you that the happiest day of their lives was when their kids were born. Suddenly a couple becomes a family and both are left to raise a precious bundle of joy whose future is virtually limitless. Almost without exception, parents want the best for their children. And that begins with the nursery.

Soon after they find out they’re pregnant, most couples select a room and start decorating it. They assemble and arrange baby furniture and baby toys and make certain that everything is functional and safe. Some items meet these requirements better than others.

The baby bouncer or rocker has long been seen as an essential nursery item. It helps soothe restless babies with a calming motion that can send them off to dreamland in short order. The only problem is that most rockers are either functional and expensive or inadequate and cheap. There seems to be no in between.


Bower & Beyond was founded on the simple idea that products for babies could be stylish, functional, and sustainable. Many of the items they sell incorporate sustainable materials that are either natural or recyclable. They also employ sustainable processes to manufacture the products in their catalogue whenever possible.  
One of the products they are most proud of is rokii®, an egg-shaped baby bouncer that can safely accommodate babies and infants alike. A highly responsive bouncer, rokii® will continue to move as the baby does until he stops moving, i.e., falls asleep. If your child is not particularly active, it may be necessary to manually move the device with a slight push or tap.
