Stanley's Room

Being the clutter monster that I am, Stanley's room has turned into the most colourful stash of clutter in our house.

Whilst he was off sick we did a bit of rearranging and I finally sorted out this slide light that I bought years ago from the talented duo Suck UK Now a mega set up with some fantastic products!

For a while I tried my best with taking slide pictures on holiday and when we were out and about, but I always found the fluorescent light way too bright to actually see the images.  Plus Stanley kept sliding them out and they'd all end up in a heap behind the bed.  Hence sitting empty and unplugged for quite some time.

So I decided to bring home a few of my off cuts. We snipped them into squares and slotted them in.  We had fun arranging them around and the result was qutie alright if I say so myself.  The main thing is that Stanley likes them and they have so far stayed put!
This is a slightly cheated photo where I've added the strip in lit, via a bit of editing, otherwise the rest of the image would be black.  I know there must be a way to do this on the camera settings, just need to sort it out!
The little foxy cushion is a new purchase from my friend Becky Baur (Link coming soon hopefully!).  Other cushions from Thirty Five Flowers (Flowers! Louise wrote a very lovely bit about my screenprinting class recently on her blog here) and Jane Foster (Vintage Magic Roundabout.  I've got quite a collection scattered around the house) The paisely quilt is from when I was a child and the mad orange, knitted bear was a gift from a neighbour.

The next thing I want to tackle is a rug.....a big black bear.


  1. I love kids rooms when they are like this! just a massive collection of all the random and bizarre stuff they have collected which also seems to inhabit their minds!!
    So great to see the cushion I made in such a fun place

  2. looks great, I'm sure Stanley will be very happy in his room. We have the same rug in Katherine's room and her favourite bit has always been the whale and the igloo!
