& it's Giddy Up by Little Nest winning the race . . .

Greetings all,
So it's day 2 of the psycho clean & the giant puzzle of moving 4 children around 3 bedrooms.  By midnight i was in the garage smashing open the crate (i said psycho) to reveal a pink Giddy Up chair by Little Nest, to surprise the girls in the morning.  So happy i woke up before them so i could hear them squeal with delight when they opened their eyes!!
 I met the gorgeous Samantha Firestone from Little Nest at the Sydney Magnolia Square launch & bought the Arne Jacobsen replica children's size chair in red for my eldest daughter.  I've been repressing the dream of also owning a Giddy Up since, until last month when i thought, bugger it, she's discontinuing the pink, i want one!!  Thanks Sam, we love her & guess what the girls have named her . . . Samantha, ahhhh. 
I had to take these shots quickly as the children have been playing on the Giddy Up all day, they're running around in knickers & it's not that kind of creepy blog!!  One child has warned she WILL be sleeping on it tonight, hmmm . . .




The Little Bert wire chairs are also from Little Nest & fit perfectly under this IKEA coffee table which is perfect for a doll's house.  I even transferred the Djeco wall stickers from room to room (my husband will cringe, he doesn't understand why all the walls can't be bare??!!)  My twins will be in this room, which is slowly coming together.  They have a pink, red & white colour scheme.  I'm not obsessed with white furniture but it's such no brainer & easy to compliment with colour.  I'll source a desk this weekend which the girls can share as the move into senior primary school next year, i know there is a lot more homework. 
Next stop tomorrow, the boy's room, it's going to be my favourite.  When all their new beds arrive in the next couple of weeks, i'll reveal the finished products & you can start paying me millions for my decorating advice, he he.  Love Posie

That Giddy Up is amazing! My eight year old daughter just saw it and now wants one!

It's looking great. I love that chair how fun is that the kids are going to fight over that, one you may need 3 more.

My kids all fight over one chair the oldest always wins...

Hi:) Great minds do think alike it seems, on the bedroom overhaul front:) I LOVE that giddy up, my Miss Lottie (3yrs) would LOVE one of those! The twins bedroom looks so beautiful and I love the little wire chairs and those fabulous wall stickers!! Lucky children indeed to have such a lovely room! Happy Wednesday ~ Tina xx

I love a good physico Mum! Hehehe

Love th idea of the picnic food. My two now stand and eat home made hommus and carrot sticks while a prepare dinner. Keeps there hands away from what is under the knife and stops them from the I'm hungry chant:)

The rooms are looking good - cant wait for the boys room - always on the lookout for boys ideas:)

Ha! It's weird but cute. I like the way it's all rounded so nobody is going to harpoon a spleen on it in the bedlam.

I am taking a leaf out of your book and doing the afternoon "picnic" for the kids and making time to charge around doing the many things that need doing.

I have no trouble keeping them away from me when I clean out their rooms! They are afraid I might make them help.

oh its all looking gorgeous! I can't wait till our new beds arrive so I can go crazy up in keira's room and finish it off! I must give you one of the white paper pom pom roses I have as I'll never use all 5 and they would be perfect in one of those rooms!
