Favourite Baby & Children's Brands
One of the things I really enjoy doing is supporting other small businesses, so I figured it was about time I pulled together a list of my favourite baby and children's brands. Unusually for me, this isn't just kids interiors focused, I wanted to help you find some boutique clothing and accessories brands too.
So here we go... (tap any image to shop)
Poppy and Honesty are a British brand that hand-make beautiful bedding, homewares and accessories, exclusively from Liberty of London cotton Tana Lawn. They combine classic prints with contemporary design to make products that look gorgeous in your home and will stand the test of time. Everything is handmade from start to finish in their home in pretty Cornwall, UK. My absolute favourite bed linen from them is the one shown in the image above, its the "Poppy & Daisy, Multi" - you'll see this featured in a lot of my lifestyle images.

Run by the amazing Marti, Hey Kiddo Studio hand makes the most adorable wire signs. Wrapped in a cosy tube of wool, they are the perfect finishing touch to any nursery, kids bedroom or playroom. Marti regularly offers custom orders, where you can choose the word or name, but you have to be quick as these get snapped up within minutes of being released. You'll see Marti's signs used in almost all of my images, especially the "sleepyhead" design... I just love them!

Autumns corner is all about hand made wooden decor, accessories and storage for nurseries / children's bedrooms. I have several of her products here in my studio - namely the small stacking rainbow, the peg shelf with a picture ledge and one of the book troughs shown in the image above. Daisy, the designer and founder, hand makes every item to order - with beautifully rounded edges, not only do her designs feel lovely, they're also safe for your little ones too. Click here to head on over to her Instagram and see what custom colour combinations peeps are choosing for their orders.
I blummin' adore Scandiborn - I've been a fan for a while now. Grace, the owner, is a real gem - juggling little ones, family life a puppy and the business. Scandiborn always has everything I need whether it be kids bed linen, a new canopy to dress a bed, blankets, cushions or a play kitchen - with all the accessories. I love that I can just hop on their website and order everything in one go. I also regularly use their site to send gifts to friends too. The image above is jam packed full of Scandiborn items - the striped play tent, the giant cuddly toy crocodile, the giraffe, the pouf, the reading canopy, the play mats... need I go on! You can find them on Instagram @scandiborn or shop directly via their website https://www.scandiborn.co.uk/
Ryan "creates happiness" with Air Dry Modelling Clay. The lion head in the centre is one of his creations, along with the adorable tiger head in the top left. If you're looking for a smaller accessory to hang on a peg shelf or similar, his clay rainbows with paper tassels is the perfect finishing touch. Ryan's children's accessories are incredibly versatile in that they suit a colourful animal safari theme, packed full of jungle greens, but they also sit beautifully in room themes with a much more muted colour palette. You can order direct with Ryan via his Instagram page here: @hello_rustle
Sue at Yoyo & Flo is an official Maileg stockist - so if you know someone who is a huge fan of these cute little mice, then you'll be sure to find them a gift or two here! It's not just Maileg mice you'll find here though...

Moi Mili make handcrafted accessories for kids rooms and nurseries. I have two of their velvet shell cushions and the scalloped bunting - both of which are so beautifully made. I also own the "mint" blue canopy shown in the image below - the fabric is of a very high quality and hangs really nicely. These items are handmade to order in Poland - I ordered mine during Covid19, they took a little while to come, but it was well worth the wait! Here's a link to the Etsy store where you purchase: Moi Mili Etsy Store
Sewcial Circle is run by Katie, she cycles around London running creative, crafty workshops. Her shop is a treasure trove of fun, woolly and creative bunting, banners and gifts.

Handmade in Sicily and only available to order via the La Maglia Instagram account, these little knitted critters make a wonderful gift or keepsake. You must check out the crocodile... my favourite!!
Isla designs and makes these charming rompers at her home in Totnes, Devon. I found her via a photographer I used for some photo shoots and fell in love! She also has a range of fabric crowns and bunting, are perfect for parties and dressing up time!
....that's it for the moment folks - I will update with more over the next few days :)
