Of course, the minute I posted my previous, I spotted this beautiful – an on-the-spot new favourite. And I’m not alone: it’s sold out, but more will come in stock. Check out their other beautiful wooden toys too – love the truck and the doll’s chair.
I’ve put together some of my favourite wooden doll’s houses for children’s rooms. I really love how they can be used to decorate a room – some of the dollshouses below feature in my children’s room designs.
I’ve chosen all wood ones, as I think these go with any scheme and don’t add more “noise”, but if you have an expensive dolls house and the colours aren’t right, why not paint it? The dolls house in used to be blue and pink, but it it fit right in after it was painted. Another idea is to use wallpaper on the inside of the house – using wallpaper samples or any pretty patterned paper, such as wrapping paper or Japanese paper. I’ll do a round-up of some of my favourite examples in a next post.

I’m so excited to share new photos of a girl’s bedroom design that I recently completed. It’s a room close to my heart: Freya’s mum loved my style and fully trusted me to create something beautiful for her daughter, yet it’s also the result of a close collaboration.
We made contact just before the family moved country. Freya’s parents’ priority was to settle their in their new life abroad as quickly as possible, starting with their bedrooms. Transitioning from a converted cotbed in a small bedroom to a much larger room with a “big girl bed”, the brief for Freya was to create a warm and welcoming bedroom, where she could retreat and feel inspired.
From the beds I proposed, Freya was super excited about a house frame bed, which is great for larger rooms. It creates a room within a room, feeling snug when transitioning from a toddler bed. We backed this with a beautiful floral wallpaper to emphasise the room-within-a-room effect. There were several colourways, from which Freya chose a soft lilac, grape and green design. This formed the base for the room’s new colour scheme.
Next on the list was a generous desk, where Freya could explore her creativity and interests. I designed a child sized desk from rustic scaffolding boards, including a pin board and storage, backed by a dusty purple background. Above the desk we created a mini gallery with existing prints and new.
I love vintage furniture to soften a room and add character, so on the other side of the room, a wide, multitasking holds Freya’s clothes and books. Next to it, a clothing rail with a storage drawer creates a dress-up area. In the large bay window, we found room for an heirloom dollshouse.
The result is a beautiful, light and restful room for Freya to make her own.

Curious to know how I choose colours for kids’ rooms? Head on over to, where I share my approach to choosing colours for children’s rooms as a children’s interior designer. It might not be what you expected!
As I’ve been drawn to greens, blues and teals of late, I thought I’d give you a round up of some of the lovely wallpaper’s I’ve considered for recent projects. Which is your favourite?
Are you ready for this?, the uber-talented photographer and stylist whose work I adore, has collaborated with one of my favourite wallpaper brands,, to create a mini collection for children.

This month for, I’m focussing on storage solutions for kids’ rooms. You can’t have enough storage, right? Right! For tips photo and inspiration, see you over at .
Have you ever thought about decorating your children’s rooms with house plants? If you’ve caught the houseplant bug that’s sweeping the world, then maybe yes?
Plants bring life and warmth to a room and look stunning in neutral nurseries and children’s rooms, as you can see in these images. But they don’t just look great. Did you know that they can help purify the air? The leaves and soil help take out harmful airborne pollutants such as formaldehyde and other nasties. The positive psychological effect on mood and wellbeing has also been well established – it’s good for people to look at greenery. So I think we should all be adding plants to children’s rooms.
Maybe I have a weak spot for plants because I’m a child of the seventies – I grew up with lots of house plants and now have quite a collection myself, including childhood favourites such as the piggy back plant, lemon geranium and lime plant. Succulents are great too – and easy to look after. I’d warn against cacti in kids’ rooms – having done a cart wheel into one of them when I was little, I can tell you, the pain of getting all those tiny pins extracted from my feet was excruciating. Also check that the plants you choose aren’t poisonous when ingested, for obvious reasons.
If you fancy growing some plants from seed with the kids, I can recommend this gorgeous children’s book that I treasured as a little girl: by Swedish writer Christina Björk. It’s no longer in print but pre-loved copies are still available at places like Amazon. It’s full of easy-to-follow projects and beautifully illustrated. A little childhood nostalgia…
I’m a little obsessed with green for kids’ rooms at the moment – all projects I’m currently working on feature green as either the main or an accent colour. It’s gender neutral, calming and versatile, combining beautifully with other colours – such as teal blue, lavender, pinks and blushes or ochre yellow to name a few. Green doesn’t have to be overly there: I love how in the above image, it features subtly in the wallpaper and is repeated in various shades with a painted chair and table. Stunning.
In this room, green combines beautifully with teal blue – one of my favourite combinations. Note how the bedspread ties everything perfectly together, but how the dolls and some cushions create just enough discord.
Another wonderful example of one of my favourite colour combinations in this vintage inspired children’s room: dark green accompanies dusky grey blue and dirty pinks. So so pretty.
This eclectic kids room combines soft grey green – one of my favourite colours for kids rooms – with dusty pink. I love how the colourful boho rug stops the room from turning too pastel.
Blue and green – but not as you know it. Note how the colours of mountains and sky are playfully swapped.
I have a weakness for painted vintage furniture, and this green cupboard in a nordic playroom is pretty perfect.
And finally, a sea green wall forms a strong background to hold the other rich colours in this sweet girl’s room. The dolls house is tonal perfection.
