Magnus & Mouse bedding

Magnus

I’m always on the lookout for stylish bed linen for babies and children, as so much of it is gender-stereotyped, Disney character nonsense. I have a particular fondness for patterned sheets as if your little one is in a sleeping bag (mine both loved their Grobags) they stop the cot/cotbed looking dull and uninteresting. So […]

Swoon: Embroidered cushions at Plumo

LOVE cushion at Plumo

I’m weak for a delightful cushion and have fallen for this ‘LOVE’ cushion at Plumo.

There’s also an embroidered cat on geometric print cushion and it’s divine. £35 as well. […]
