This week I caught up with Fiona, the style savvy mum behind the eye catching Instagram account @fee_loves_ . As well as having a gift for styling and kids decor, this lovely lady is also a strong supporter of shopping small and handmade. I LOVE scrolling through her gorgeous Instagram feed! If you haven’t seen it yet – go check it out, it’s addictive 🙊
How would you describe your style?
Style // When it comes to the children’s rooms I love bright, happy and busy spaces. I love using handmade pieces in their rooms especially as main features. The other rooms in the house are very minimal and white with soft touches of colour.
What is your favourite thing to do with your kids?
I love baking with the kids, especially Michael who is almost four as he loves it and wants to be a chef when he is older…this week anyway. We all enjoy the veggie patch planting, watering and harvesting.
If you could do anything, describe your ideal day!
I think my ideal day would start with the kids sleeping in. A little trip down to Barwon Heads to watch the kids paddle in the rock pools and some fish and chips on the beach for lunch. A nice lazy afternoon at home just enjoying each other. A lovely meal and wine with the hubby to end the day.
Can you tell us some of your top store picks for shopping small and handmade?
There are so many handmade stores I love on Instagram! @piccolostudio_sarah for quilts and cushions, @ellieshm for beautiful handmade dresses, and @quackaryhandmade for some funky boys threads.
I love @mitahli_designs for kids decor, @blooms.butterflies.doll.studio for stunning dolls, and @bunyetskahandmade for crochet rugs.
@littlelopbunnies, @rhapsodyandthread, @littlepeachhandmade, and @hellolucy for gorgeous softies.
Some new stores to watch?
@feltinbloom is a new store that make beautiful felt hair accessories. And @littlewildoak is another new store launching this month with gorgeous name plaques!
Do you have any big goals for 2016?
This year I would really like to start my own product photography business but it is only in the very, very early stages but I hope 2016 is the year I can get started.
