We have gone French!

We have gone French! New bedding from Fred the Dog is coming to Willow and Me!

Designed by a French mum, Catherine was fed up with boring duvet covers and wanted something fun for her own children's bedrooms. After looking and not finding what she wanted she was undeterred and went about creating Fred the Dog.

This gorgeous bedding is full of playfulness with its great designs and colour. Made from 100% percale cotton, they are also so lovely and soft.

With a choice of robots, butterflies, dinosaurs, a construction site, trains and flowers there is a stunning range to choose from.

Create a smart, cool bedroom space for older boys

Funky Little Darlings Soldier Ants Wall Sticker
Babyface Navy Gingham Bedding

We have picked a few of our favourite ideas to style an older boys bedroom. The Gingham duvet sets we stock from Babyface create a smart feel to a room. Our selection includes black, navy or blue ginghams. Combine these with our navy gingham curtains.

 Team this with the stars quilt and cushions for some extra style.

Funky Little Darlings BMX Fine Art Print
When thinking about walls, paint in a neutral colour and add impact by picking one of our selection of vibrant giant wall stickers, wallclocks or fine art prints from our Funky Little Darlings range. Our favourites are the union jack wall clock, soldier ants wall stickers and the BMX or Vintage VW fine art prints. Finally finish the room off with a 100% hand tufted wool union jack rug.
