When Design and Baby Products Align. Introducing the New Stylish 2 in 1 Weaning Spoon and Toothbrush.

Hello Everyone

*

Welcome to my second post on Interiors, which actually features my own cottage in Dolton, Devon with original photos, as well as some similarly inspired cottage decor I love. Today I am going to show you where I get my interiors inspiration from and how it aligns with my teething brand, uki.be.

uki.be was designed using clean shapes and a fresh colour palette, the uki.be teething and weaning range appeals to design-conscious mums and dads, as well as babies and toddlers looking for something satisfying to chew. We feel that just because our products are for babies, we don't have to compromise on style or taste.  Simple is always the best, for our babies and for us. Aesthetics are key. "Beauty awakens the sole to act' Dante Alighieri.

I have always loved a variety of industrial materials in my home.  I have a stainless steel kitchen in London and have always wanted to use copper somewhere.  When we bought the cottage there was already a lovely, custom made, oak kitchen. It wasn't my style but as we had little, to no budget we just painted the cabinetry dark grey, added copper handles and a copper splashback.  I finally found somewhere for my copper!

 

Here is a picture of my kitchen and a few examples from where I took inspiration. If Even if I do say so myself, I love it. It does show every watermark, and it can't be cleaned like stainless steel I think every mark tells a story.  The marks are like works of art in itself.

If you don't want to commit to a large expanse of copper you can also add a splash of copper to the house. Here are a few examples:

I also have this Dualit kettle and toaster in the Cottage ( I only bought the two slot as it is quite pricey) but it looks fab against the copper splash, therefore i tell myself it was worth it!

I have fallen in love with these pots and pans, I have not managed to the source where they are from, so if anyone knows please let me know. I will be adding them to my never-ending list of things I would like for the house. (I think I am a lot worse recently being pregnant and nesting)

NOW ONTO GREY INTERIORS...

MINIMALISM IS KEY, ESPECIALLY WITH KITCHENS, LESS IS MORE!

*

I learnt my love for clean and simples shapes from working with Foster + Partners, a famous Architects.  I think a good colour palette and simple design is timeless.  And grey is timeless to me.  It is the perfect backdrop for artwork, sofas, you name it and it works with every colour.  Even better, it doesn’t show up the kids’ smeary mess and marks.  Mainly pen marks for us, my son, Rex is a budding artist!

Here are a few examples of the simples aesthetics I was referring to above:

Toothbrush side: Unbelievably, tooth decay can start under the gum before your baby’s teeth come through so start the routine as early as you can. The uki.be first stage toothbrush is a soft silicone toothbrush shaped to clean teeth and gums correctly. The toothbrush works with your child’s chewing action, which comes naturally to babies and young children.
