Pinterest… collecting and saving ideas and inspiration has never been easier. We’ve been having a ball pinning lots of favourite finds and ideas for kids spaces and home decor – and have even added a few original ideas. You can follow our boards HERE.

Money Box/ Pencil tin

Pencil Tins/Money box

For just $9.95 these money boxes have to be one of the best gift-buys around. They really are a classic, ageless gift which would be perfect for any child, tween or teen. The colours tie in happily with any interior – and for double duty the lid comes off to make a handy pencil tin! Pop a few in the “present box” and you won’t mind when you find those birthday invites all squashed up in the school bag on the day of the party! more

Pretty in Pink

The Little Explorer.

We’ve been having some fun putting together new room inspiration boards from our collection. You can view the individual pieces and browse other looks in our “Get the Look” section. Or click through PRETTY IN PINK or LITTLE EXPLORER.

Door handles are a quick, cost effective way to brighten up an old piece of furniture. They come in all shapes, colours and sizes and you’ll need little more than a spanner or screwdriver to remove old handles and tighten up the new ones! These cute polka dot handles are hand painted ceramic and perfectly sized for little hands. Available from Little Living in green, blue, yellow and black with spots.

Cute as a button; our new Maileg stock has arrived in store! Just in time for Easter gifts and April birthdays our new stock includes the popular mice in boxes, baby rattles and the classic Maileg soft horse. Quality materials, workmanship and superb attention to detail makes Maileg an endearing and treasured gift for children of any age. See them in store now!

Look what we made this weekend! All we needed was an hour to remove an old table cover , a map, some clear plastic from Bunnings, my trusty staple gun and viola! A new desk for the kids! The legs are from Ikea and have been reinvented a million times – if only they could talk! We have a slightly smaller (personalised) map in the shop.

Also… it seems my husband is reading this blog (see post from last week!) because look what turned up in our backyard this afternoon! yippee! So… a daybed, a coffee table…. what will it be folks?!?!

You’ll find refreshing Easter gifts including classic soft toys, travel toys, decorated metal eggs and hanging decorations from Maileg, decorative lanterns in colourful spots and bright plains (arriving next week) and custom made wall prints. Check it out and get organised for Easter!

Oh we are so excited and can hardly wait for this new delivery!! Coming soon to Little Living is… MIMI’lou. MIMI’Lou is a divine French brand whose designs and products are inspired by a fanciful kids-world full of poetry – where you can read a book with your hippo, whisper a secret to your deer or take your butterfly out for a walk. So fun and very dreamy! Our first delivery will include paper lanterns and some unique wall decals which will be great for tweens as well as the littlies. You’ll be swooning along with us… we are expecting this range in a couple of weeks and will let you know when it’s available.

Love Mae wall stickers are now available at Little Living! Gorgeous, charming, lovely and dare we say it… practical! These decals can be repositioned hundreds of times over, scrunched up, smoothed out, even washed and best of all they will not damage your walls. Perfect for a quick (and changeable) pick me up for any room in the house! Check them out!
