Black, white and yellow boy's bedroom - 9 years

Amy from Happy As Larry Designs showcases the gorgeous black and white felt rug that she designed in her son Isaac's room. The grey walls are a great base for the monochrome elements and the pops of yellow. Isaac loves being silly and bouncing around but also wants a quiet space to listen to music, sit and read on his beanbag, and play with his Lego. Isaac has Autism, so Amy wanted to create a room for him that caters to some of his sensory needs. Read on for more tips from Amy on creating a great room for her 9-year-old son.

Room: Isaac's black, white and yellow wilderness-themed bedroom
Age: 9 years old
Designed by: Raquel Belli from Inspired by Pearl; a Perth-based Interior designer for kids
Location: Perth, Australia

The Blue Mountains hiking with kids

I've been to the Blue Mountains several times before having kids, eating at cosy cafes and making the obligatory pit stop at Echo Point to jostle with the thousands of tourists to take a quick snap of The Three Sisters. This time, we went with family friends (four adults and four kids 5-8 years in total) and had the kids' interests firmly in mind. The plan was child-friendly hiking and good, casual food.

10 Moon trend artworks for kids

Along with the current love for all things boho and gypsy, celestial, and the new New Age, there has been a mini-trend towards the use of moon artwork in kids' interiors. Of course there is the huge popularity of the I Love You To The Moon And Back phrase, and artwork associated with it, but I've also seen a lot of moon photography and moon phase designs being used. Here are some great lunar-themed interiors ideas from Etsy stores in Australia for your inspiration:
