My Stokke Styleboard

When it comes to fashion I know nothing but I like to think I have a good eye for design, especially when it comes to nursery related products. I first came across Stokke back when the toddler was a baby and I was fed up of his chunky multicoloured highchair that just stuck out like a sore thumb. I browsed the internet and came across the Stokke Tripp Trapp, it was like highchair love at first sight! I knew right away that it had a place in our dining room and 3 years later, it's the best bit of furniture in our house. The design is so flexible in the way that with some helpful accessories it can be used right from newborn until adulthood.We now own several Stokke products and each of them are used on a daily basis. When I spotted a style board for Black Melange for the Stokke Xplory over on the it kinda inspired me to do my own style boards for my Stokke products.

When it's a day where I'm choosing to carry Dylan in his Stokke MyCarrier, I tend to find myself wearing my red converses. See I may not know fashion but I do know that my red converses compliments my red MyCarrier rather well. I generally wear just simple clothing and tend to live in jeans so casual will always be my MyCarrier look. The baby on the other hand can pull off anything though as he gets bigger I think he needs to join my red converse gang.

The Stokke Xplory doesn't need any styling, I don't know where to begin with what outfit would go with it. What it does need is it's Stokke accessories. I mentioned in my Stokke Xplory review that my ultimate accessory for my stroller is my cup holder but since the colder weather has creeped in, I'm loving my Winter Kit, especially my handmuff! You can accessorise with footmuffs, changing bags, blankets and I've included a lamaze toy in my style board as we rotate between the various ones the baby has and dangle one either from his hood or his bumper bar to keep him entertained whilst on the move.

Again with the Stokke Tripp Trapp I've styled with Stokke accessories.We have a couple of Stokke cushions for our Tripps Trapps but have now branched off and have ordered some customised Tripp Trapp cushions, personalising your Stokke products can be a never ending hobby. Of course our Tripp Trapps are mainly used at feeding times though the toddler uses his when sitting at the table for crafts. I've added in some another design favourite of ours, Cath Kidston and her range of kids dining products. My new dining room really is going to have the Tripp Trapp touch as I'm putting up some framed photos by Laura of Rocketbumtheblog/ of her kittens on her Tripp Trapp. I adore them and I think they would look fantastic on my dining room wall and knowing that they were taken by a good friend of mine really adds that extra touch.

You look at the Stokke Sleepi and you cant help but to hear DESIGN & QUALITY being shouted at you. When it come to cots, it really does stand out from the crowd with it's nest like shape. No wonder it's won various awards. In the nursery we have a white gliding chair to go alongside it along with a simple mobile. I'm aiming to try and make his room look simple at the same time as a room to be proud of. Am making the most of it before I get the pleas of having dinosaurs painted on the walls or caterpillars as the toddler requested for his earlier. I'm yet to find a cushion for the glider though, I do like this owl one as it does bring some colour into the room. Though I'm thinking maybe something elephant related to match his mobile.
