For our inner child: Naughts & Crosses
You could be pregnant and considering how to set up the baby room; you could be re-decorating your child’s room or you could just yearn for things when you were wee high. Whatever your scenario is, Australian brand Naughts & Crosses is the answer.
Naughts & Crosses is a playful brand that is for the young at heart. Ranging from lamps to furniture, to textiles, to artwork and prints, it really does have something for everybody. Everything is just so appealing!
Look at this adorable munchkin in a sailor-inspired dress with little girls and boys floating around in astronaut helmets and flying saucers. Amazingly original at a cost of £47; ideal for a birthday party where your daughter will be the prettiest little girl around.
Louise, owner and designer, studied interior design and worked as a stylist for many years before deciding to start her children’s label Naughts & Crosses. “Naughts & Crosses evolved from my love of working with children and my passion for creating an interior space that is unique and practical.”
If you have a weakness for quirky things, try this Vintage Lapin Lamp. Priced at £121, not at all cheap, but how can you say no to this cute as a button bunny scratching his adorable little bum.
This Boy With Bird Wall Art Set is hand-cut and crafted using re-claimed plywood. The images are sourced from various vintage publications, including picture books, magazines and novels. So, let your son or nephew choose his favourite bedtime story and dream away… You would be the coolest mother or aunt around just to see that smile light up his face as it hangs on his wall!
Perhaps if you are looking for a gift to give, you could purchase this Fawn Rattle with polka dots and stars. The cute little bow adds that special touch. When shaken, hear the soft ringing rattle inside.
All of us do have an inner child aching to escape and run wild. Your inner child should be tickled with delight with these Animal Crackers Containers. Each jar has a different animal on the lid. So why not create your own zoo at £8.70 a piece?
As Louise puts it, Naughts & Crosses is about keeping “little minds active and their spaces beautiful”. Visit her quirky shop in Victoria, Australia or closer by, via her website.
