Introducing kids to the creativity and style of interior design is always a good idea. Showing off how satisfying an undertaking making a home really is will offer them all sorts of benefits. You can also show them how fun it can be at the same time. And learning while having fun is the best way to take lessons on board.
A fun time with home design is certainly on offer with the latest collection from Ferm Living, now available on our pages here at Homecolours. The wide range of accessories, homeware, cushions and games bridge the gap between sophisticated home products and fun. It is this exploration of design style through play that makes the collection such a bright group of designs.
The following is a selection of the the new Ferm Living Homeware collection created with the younger ones squarely in mind.
The Fruiticana Seahorse Mobile is a beautiful way to provide babies and smaller kids with a relaxing experience of sight and sound. The knitted pink, cream and maroon cotton creation is perfect for hanging in a child's bedroom or from a cot. When you pull the string a lovely melody is produced, ideal for lulling tired eyes to sleep. The 100% cotton mobile is easy to hang with its gold coloured look providing secure support wherever needed. Easy to clean and look after, the mobile is sure to be a hit with all younger people!
Parents always like to document their child's progress. Linking in this need for recording achievements and the passing of time is the Kids Memory Box, a way for parents and kids to chart their development together. The cotton crafted cardboard box contains a cotton bag for smaller items, a match box for their first teeth, an envelope for keeping a lock of hair from a hair-cut, as well as a treasure trove of other little boxes and items. There are also small notebooks for keeping track of everything going on in yours and your child's early life. A fantastic gift for new parents, the box is sure to keep memories secure forever.
Fun and games come to the fore with the Safari Puzzle, another of Ferm Living's superb homeware items for kids. Brilliant for helping smaller children with hand to eye coordination and memory, the puzzle is based around plywood pieces and a board containing apertures for them to fit into. Featuring animals from the safari collection, the puzzle is a fun and dynamic method of introducing these essential skills.
Another item from the Safari series is the Safari Tufted Rug, Leopard which has comfort and relaxation as its focus. Made from 100% New Zealand wool, the rug is a striking piece perfect for a kid's bedroom. The strong cotton backing and ability to be either lain flat on the floor or secured onto a wall make it a delightfully versatile item for the home. The striking pattern of the leopard's fur and big friendly smile is sure to help make it a favourite for all younger members of a household.
