Sophisticated Little Boy’s Bedrooms

With talk of another addition to our family my first thought goes to “Two new rooms to create!” (Hooray! Ignore the thought of sleepless nights). I’ll need to redo the nursery and create a Big Boy room with a Big Boy bed for Campbell to move into.

Ikat Inspiration

Ikat (pronounced ee-khat) is a dyeing technique similar to tie-dye.  The word Ikat is derived from the Indonesian word mengikat which means ‘to tie’.  There are many different techniques used to achieve the look with much of it being produced in Indonesia.  It is also widely produced across the world in places including South and Central America, Thailand and Japan.  Styles and patterns tend to vary which can often have ethnic or tribal meanings.  Keep a look out for my post on Ikat DIY and crafts!
