Favourite things roundup: One for the boys

favorite things for boys rooms

Wowzers, it cat believe its Friday – and basically the end of May too! Is anyone else completely stunned that we are almost half way through this year? Remember those days as a kid, when a year felt like a lifetime. Sigh….those really were the days.

So, on the subject of kids, my roundup for this month features some of my favorite pieces for little boys’ rooms.

I recently discovered an amazing Dubai-based company called POMME which produces a beautiful range of handmade kids furniture. Available in white and a range of signature pastels, the designs are simple, practical and stylish.

I love the idea of using this clothes rack to store my son’s extensive collection of superhero costumes. Not only will all the colorful costumes serve as a funky decorative accessory but it would keep him and his mates from ransacking his entire wardrobe every time duty calls…  which, let’s face it, is almost always.

This toy box is another item on the POMME must-have list. Is it not fabulous!?

My son has been after a gown for a long time… I found this number at Zara Home. So cute!

When it comes to children’s bedding, you can never go wrong at The White Company.

Another recent gem found in Dubai (there are so many that I need to share) is The Little Lala Co. ‘Mompreneur’ and owner, Catherine McEvoy, designs bespoke wall art made of cutouts backed by patterned papers or fabrics.  You can purchase her ready made options or have something made specifically to match your child’s room, using a paper or fabric of your choice.

Jamal the camel must be a best-seller with expats living in Dubai. What a great keepsake to take back home one day.

These canvas storage baskets from Pottery Barn Kids are a firm favorite in my kids’ rooms – they are so practical and easy to wash.

I just adore this tricolour rug from Zara Home.

  • When my dining room looks this bare, you know my kids have built an epic fort somewhere. Dining chairs are an integral part of the architecture. And its their favourite weekend activity 🙄 Also, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't kind of digging the extreme minimalist vibe. Suddenly wondering if we could survive with 2 dining chairs. Dinner in shifts, perhaps?

  • A piece of unquestionable beauty from the lovely Sacha at @junoandace_ arrived on our desk this morning and we're just scratching our heads dumbfounded at why we didn't order more!? Fools.

  • Yesterday during our installation I showed (off) my Bosch cordless screwdriver in action and since this is something I am asked about, I thought I’d show you guys the two tools I can’t live without and why… because I’m a tool geek - that’s why. I’ve had a Bosch cordless screwdriver for years and it’s my most used tool. A few months ago, @boschmiddleeast sent me a box of tools as a gift and it should come as no surprise to hear that I was giddy with excitement. The cordless screwdriver and laser measure included in that set were both upgrades on the ones I had and I was blown away by both. (See my story highlights for those scenes of discovery). The reason I love the new cordless screwdriver so much more than the older one is because unlike the older version, the various screwdriver heads/bits are housed within the tool and can be easily changed by rotating the cartridge. Mind blown! My old screwdriver had the bits in a separate case, which had a habit of disappearing on me. As for the laser measure, this little gem makes life so easy. Measuring up a room can be done in less than half the time and unlike my conventional tape measure, it’s super lightweight in my handbag. Which is where you’ll always find it. Obvs.

  • The little residents of this room got to see their new space for the first time yesterday and we hear from.the mama that there was all kinds of excitement and joy. The news warmed my heart which was much needed during an otherwise frustrating morning.

  • Charly just told me that @martin_and_ella have a sale on and so many of our favourite @piupiuchick pieces are included. Made me think of that time we had all the House of Hawkes smalls in one fun shoot. We need to do this again... but maybe when the humidity is done over achieving! .

  • Hold up! Holy shizzz... I just caught my child cleaning his desk. You're going to laugh out loud at his reason for doing this, and I also need y'all help with something in his room. All the laughs and my question on stories. .
