Tickle The Imagination magazine Kids Issue 21: Sprout

I know I'm biased as it's the Kids Issue, but Issue 21 of Tickle The Imagination magazine is my favourite yet. It's full of ideas for creative kids' bedrooms, study spaces and toy rooms, party ideas, a recipe for healthy doughnuts, DIY craft tutorials for softies and fabric lunch sacks, interviews with creatives and much more. Here's a sneak peek of some of the kids' inspiration in this Australian-published and printed craft and lifestyle magazine:

Editor and stylist/photographer/designer Tanya Collier has beautifully styled and photographed these gorgeous spaces for kids. I'm super-inspired! First up, the blue-toned study space with an ocean feel. I love everything about this room, set-up, from the old school desk and lighting, the inspiring artwork, and that amazing two-tone angled painted wall:
