Beautiful kids bedlinen by Newcastle based GatherKids

Knitted blanket by GatherKids

Ok so as is probably obvious, I am a massive fan of bright colour… and yet I can’t help but be envious of those effortlessly stylish ladies who are able to kit out their homes (and their children!) entirely in muted, neutral tones.  It’s just so flippin’ POSH.  I admire those ladies from a distance, secretly thinking to myself  ‘HOW do you avoid a splash of fluoro PINK, people!?’.  It really is very impressive.

One such stylish neutral-loving lady is Newcastle-based Melissa Webster, the designer behind GatherKids!

With two young kids of her own (and another due any day now!), Melissa is passionate about the use of natural, organic materials in her range of beautiful kids bedding and blankets.  As is evident in these stunning pics, the range is focussed on a delectable palette of muted greys, creams, oatmeals and natural browns, to bring a touch of calm to little ones’ spaces.  The debut collection includes beautifully crafted quilts, doona covers, sheet sets and supremely soft knitted blankets, as well as a sweet children’s furniture set with scandi-inspired design appeal.  The table in particular is very genius – it’s the perfect size to double as a grown-up coffee table, and looks nothing like the usual plasticky kids furniture.

Each piece in the GatherKids range is designed and developed in house.  The bedding is designed by Melissa (whose background is in visual merchandising and interior design), the furniture is designed by her husband Trent.   Natural materials for all products are sourced from certified and ethical suppliers, and the finished products are proudly made in Australia, New Zealand and India.

GatherKids can be purchased in Australia from retail stockists listed here.

ps. Now you’ve had a chance to admire her work, we’ll share Melissa’s beautiful family home in the next couple of weeks… you’ll never guess the colour palette!
