Announcing Chase | Baby boy stationery & wall art


As if Christmas week wasn’t exciting enough, our extended family was recently blessed with an adorable new arrival. My cousin, Ryan, and his beautiful wife, Stacey, welcomed their firstborn – a bouncing baby boy – into the world just a few days before Christmas. They named him Chase Clarke Patterson. Love it!

Welcome to the world, little guy. Could you be any cuter?

Ryan and Stacey visited Dubai a few months ago and I got to spend some time with Stacey discussing ideas for her nursery. I got a good feel for the ‘vision’ she has for all her baby projects and have since put a few things together for her, including a shower invitation with matching thank you card, some options for their birth announcement (two examples shown below), and some wall art ideas for a gallery that Stacey wanted to create above the cot.

With the new mum’s kind permission, here’s a peek at some of the bits and pieces inspired by her beautiful bundle of joy…

How gorgeous is that child!?

Stacey has since completed the nursery and from what I’ve seen in a few images she sent via WhatsApp, it looks gorgeous. Thank goodness for the technology we have at our disposal these days. Stacey received the print ready images via Dropbox and had them printed and framed by local suppliers. The animal gallery has pride of place on the main wall above Chase’s cot and it really looks fabulous. I’ll have to see what I can do about getting some pictures to share with youโ€ฆ but that will have to wait until that all too familiar first-time-mother-of-a-newborn haze has lifted.

In the meantime, I’ve been working on additional little design for the nursery: a baby birth and ancestry chart. I would love to say that this novel idea is all my own, but alas, it was inspired by a similar concept I saw online a few years ago. Its basically something that can be used in a baby album, digital photo book or simply as wall art in a nursery. The design includes all the names of baby’s parents, grandparents and great grand parents as well as his/her usual birth information.

I’m going to have this printed and framed to send home to South Africa as a gift. Stacey lost her mum a few years ago and I think (or hope) that she will love the idea of having Chase’s Granny’s name visible in his room as he plays and grows – Rosalind is such a beautiful name, after all.

    • We started work on this shared sibling room just before the summer and after long delays with some of the items we ordered, we finally managed to apply the finishing touches last month. There's a full reveal on the blog. Link in profile.

    • @d3dubai is one of my favourite Dubai districts. I'll be back there this afternoon with @liveloudgirl to talk about building a business in the social media age and our @fronteriors journey thus far. We kick off at 6pm if you around and would like to join us.  #downtowndesign #ddw2019
    • Yesterday was our first day in the new studio.  Given the distinct lack of furniture, we unpacked all the crazy onto the one @andtradition sofa that we have. ๐Ÿ˜ Thanks to @marli_smithphotography for capturing this hilarious moment, like the new age working mum that she is - with a baby on her hip. We were just missing our other brand new mummy. New chapter starts here. #studiofronteriors #girlgang
    • Dreamy terrazzo feels at the @nwt.newterracotta exhibit at @downtowndesignd #ddw2019 #terrazzo #downtowndesign
    • Aw, look at these little guys sky-rocketing the cuteness scale in yesterday's nursery installation. And as for that colour (Exhale) from @jotunpaintsarabia 2020 collection, I'm smitten!
    • @marli_smithphotography and I tried to shoot my kitchen makeover today but rain has ended play unexpectedly.... hey ho, you can't get me down though, I'm loving this new space too much!
    • A busy and exciting week lies ahead, peeps! Aside of an installation to complete for a lovely new client, I'm right on the cusp of a super exciting milestone. @liveloudgirl and I are moving into a shared studio space... because since the inception of @fronteriors we're basically married so getting a place together seems like the obvious next step ๐Ÿ˜‚ But seriously though, we're becoming a blended tribe of sorts and we are really excited for this next chapter of creativity, with our respective teams working side by side while we steer the runaway train that is fronteriors. 
The new studio is a dreamy blank canvas of endless artistic possibilities. We've already treated it to some @jotunpaintsarabia magic on the walls, but I suspect that that the evolution of this workspace will be constantly in motion. Stay tuned.

    • Forever discovering treasures in mom's office only to be told they're for someone else's room. She'll tell you that's the story of her life. Wonder where she gets that sense of drama? ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ™Ž๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿณ @bigstuffed
