Have you seen the latest Pottery Barn Kids catalogue? It makes me nostalgic. You see, many years ago I set up a shop called Little People’s Linen in Coorparoo because I was pregnant with my son, and was so disenchanted with the nursery and kids decor on offer at the time. My husband went to the United States, and brought me back the Pottery Barn catalogues and I would pour over them and wished we could have products like that. Fast forward 15 years and now we can. Of course, I now have teenagers, so Pottery Barn Teen is more my market, but I will always have a soft spot for nurseries and kids rooms.
One thing I’ve always loved about Pottery Barn catalogues, other than their gorgeous products, is the way they style their photographs to inspire you and give you ideas. I love the shaped picture frames hanging above the bed and the winter pine trees under the cloches in this sweet twin girls room. Such an easy idea to replicate if you have two girls who share a room.
The nautical inspired boy’s nursery below is fresh and modern whilst still being classic in it’s style. Balance out the strong navy with plenty of white and add natural elements such as the timber table and wicker to soften the look and add texture.
Pottery Barn has always been good at storage solutions and the Cameron Storage system is no exception. It’s both functional and attractive. Baskets are a great way to store lots of smaller items without the shelves looking cluttered and messy.
Is this every little girl’s dream? A tea party under a voile canopy and chandelier. Pottery Barn include styling tips in their catalogues to help you create your own unique spaces. Even if you can’t buy any of the products, the catalogues are full of ideas and inspiration.
Pottery Barn Kids are located in Bondi and Chatswood (Sydney) and Chadstone (Melbourne). Stores will soon be opening in Hay Street (Perth) and James Street, Fortitude Valley (Brisbane)
