    The Collaborative – Autumn inspiration

    The sun is rising a little bit later each morning and the leaves are turning into all shades of brown and burnt orange. Autumn is creeping up and slowly letting us get use to the cooler months approaching. I’m not a winter person at all but these in between seasons are really the prettiest months of the year. This inspired us to create a style session inspired by the colours of autumn. A feast for the eyes and such a warm and inviting colour scheme. We played around with the amazing products that the collaborators sent and came up with different visions of autumn! A few of our favourite products…

    Decorex 2017

    This year Decorex SA has introduced the Milk Jug cafe to the Decorex shows, an area specifically dedicated to kids, surrounded by kids decor and interior inspiration. Little Interiors was honoured to have teamed up with an amazing group of kids decor brands to design a drool-worthy nursery space. My aim was to create a nursery design that will catch the eye of not just the expecting parent, and for the design to be a talking point by stepping out of the normal box of what a nursery should look like. I wanted to create an industrial Scandinavian look with pops of steampunk and an adventure theme combined. Concrete, steel…

    Demetri’s Toddler Room

    This toddler room for Demetri encapsulates everything about being a boy. Little Demetri is almost 3 and loves trains, rockets, robots and planes. I did not want to bind the room with only one theme,  I would like to have the option to tweak the room as he grows up, to match his personality and likes. I wanted a real boyish room since he was still in his nursery so I had a custom cross stitch piece made for him, inspired by the nursery rhyme “What are little boys made of?”. This became the inspiration behind this room. Demetri has taken over his big sisters room seen bellow in the…

    The Collaborative – Tribal Woodlands Nursery

    The Collaborative is the brain child of Chantelle {La Fede designs} and Mariette {Little Interiors} with the goal get mostly South African small businesses to collaborate to create beautiful room settings with locally designed and manufactured items. Each Collaborative shoot includes 3 room designs. Collaborative 1 included a Girl’s Playroom, a Monochrome Boy’s Room and the last a Tribal Woodlands Nursery.

    A room perfect for your princess

    With the birth of England’s new Princess, Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, the world is in Princess mode. A little sparkle of hope brightened all our lives even for just a day. Inspired by the fuss over this little Princess I created a princess inspired mood board to commemorate this event. Whether you want to design a more quirky, fun princess themed room or more classic, grown-up room, is up to you. It is a theme that makes use of pinks, lilacs gold, silver and stones. The brighter the colours the more quirky, the lighter the shades the more classic the theme becomes. Items as simple as netting draped above the bed…

    Disney themed room

    Finally the big reveal… ALEXIA’S DISNEY THEMED ROOM. I just love how this room turned out. It reflects Alexia’s personality perfectly, gives her a place to enjoy her music, reading and drawing in a relaxing environment. In this post I will be going through the whole process of designing this room. Firstly I came up with the concept and I made a mood board with all the ideas that I could find. We were in the process of buying a new house so I did not have any type of room in mind so I could not narrow down the ideas to what will work in the specific room. Here…

    Disney Themed Room – UPDATE with inspiration board

    I have been keeping my eyes open for some interesting ideas for Alexia’s Disney Themed Room. This is my inspiration board so far… I must admit that it is difficult to keep my ideas in one place at a time…there are so many different characters that I would like incorporate. I am worried that if I’m not careful the room could end up looking like “Disney gone wrong” with nothing tying into each other. I like the idea of using one character with a quote on the wall tied in with the magic stars connecting them all, seen in the inspiration board. A couple of small touches like the Peter…
