STYLISH BATH TOYS
Up the ante on that mouldy family of rubber ducks
It might be because it’s the start of the year and we’ve got that start-afresh decluttering vibe, or maybe it’s just because we’re sick of all the tat that ends up scattered around the bathroom, but our bath toys are in need of a style-over. Whether it’s old-as-the-hills toy boats, sea creatures that have lost their squirt, empty shampoo bottles or toy cars from the bedroom, our bath entertainment has seen better days and just makes the room look like a cluttered extension of the playroom. So we’re downsizing, streamlining and creating a new collection of more aesthetically pleasing bath-time favourites to keep the little ones happy while also looking pretty good on the side of the tub.
Stimulate their senses by filling this rain cloud up and letting it rain. Simple and fun.

I spent last week obsessing over wallpaper, as I'm at the final stages of my oh-God-it's-taken-forever home extension and now I get to do the fun stuff like deciding on paint colours and stroking carpet samples. Amid the obligatory folding down of corners in home magazines and throwing together a few mood boards on Pinterest, I've found a bit of a soft spot for Cole & Son wallpaper, including this whimsical Woods & Stars print. Here's how I'd add some colour pops and quirky accessories to create a magical woodland feel.
