SnüzPod voted IndyBest Buy

Another award for our best selling SnüzPod

Willow Wallpaper, Camomile, Morris & Co.
Multi-award winning SnüzPod bedside crib has been voted the Independent's Best Buy for a bedside crib. Highlighting 9 of the best bedside cribs, it came top, with a 5 star review. And we couldn't agree more. We heartily recommend the SnüzPod for the first few months before a baby moves into the nursery and regularly use them when we are designing baby rooms. It's a perfect choice. Compact, attaches to the bed for easy night time feeding, rocking motion for soothing and for colicky babies, easy to see your baby through the mesh and it's portable too.  All this in one product!

Her gorgeous illustrations of rabbits, mice and tigers feature an array of positive imagery, instilling children to be courageous and fly high, along with charming super bunnies dressed in a unitards and capes, hands on hips ready to save the world.

William morris collection

Morris & Co. wallpapers, paints and furnishings coming to our shop

Willow Wallpaper, Camomile, Morris & Co.
We have long been inspired and influenced by the designs created by William Morris and use them regularly in our interior projects. And now, we are really happy to announce that we have been granted approval to sell the Morris & Co. collection on our Funky Little Darlings shop. We are busy preparing a range of wallpapers and fabrics that will be perfect for nurseries, children's bedrooms and playrooms, along with a carefully coordinated palette of paint to harmonise and rugs to add a warm wow factor to finish off a room.

William Morris was one of the pioneers of the Arts and Crafts Movement, famously quoting "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.", something we wholeheartedly agree with. His organic illustrative designs were drawn from elements of nature, with his most widely recognised Willow Boughs being instantly recognisable.

Our Morris & Co. collection, curated for children's interiors will be available when our re-vamped website launches later this month.

Wow! what can we say but THANK YOU...

Such a fabulous testimonal from an utterly wonderful family we are now honoured to call friends.

"We have been fortunate to work with Funky Little Darings four times already and we are blessed to still have future projects planned with them in the pipeline. Our journey with them started when we were looking for interior designers who could design and create a realistic 'safari' themed room for our son Rishaan. He was so specific about his needs and very mature for his age. I spoke to Mandy and instantly hit it off! She showed so much patience, care and enthusiasm in regards to creating a design for Rishaan's room. 

In every project, before we go ahead, we recieve a fantastic storyboard with itemised components to match the theme and thorough, detailed descriptions to show placement and measurements of freestanding, fitted furniture and all accessories. 

The people they work with are of a  extremely high standard, all the cabinetry is outstanding and perfectly finished. Every result we have had in our house, from our amazing attic playroom to our Africa lounge to the coolest man cave (London themed) is just off the scale amazing! 

They tailor make their designs according to your budget but never cut corners and are always flexible. We pay for quality and that's never, ever missing in their work. 

Both Mandy and David and all their teams are highly trust worthy and very friendly, such a pleasure to work with.

We highly recommend using Funky Little Darlings - you will never be disappointed."

Autumn 2017: Interiors page

Latest interiors page for City Kids magazine to show how you can create a fun and colour filled playroom or play area for your children and where to source the furnishings to get the look.

Designing a playroom for your little one is great fun and the chance to indulge your sense of fun. You may be lucky enough to dedicate a whole room to your children, but don’t let this deter you if space is at a premium. Children don’t care where they play, be it a recess under the stairs or a section off the kitchen. A play area allows for safe play and space to spark their creative imaginations. Essentials are storage, workspace, flexible seating and colour. A stylized tree wallpaper defines this space with a quirky book shelf and a desk to work at. Ensure the room is well lit with a mix of imaginative lights and seating that can move around to accommodate friends. A clock and height chart makes learning fun and animal themed imagery engages the whole family!
