We are SO incredibly excited to announce the launch of Little Soak&Sleep! Yes, you heard it right…we’re launching our very own kid’s ranges. Our kid’s ranges can help transform your children’s bedrooms into their very own sleep heaven; from fun bed linen and accessories to storage and lighting . Our Little Soak&Sleep department is complete with four beautifully designed stories, Magical, Little Circus, Dark Space and Woodland. Each story contains the most stunningly illustrated designs which are unique to Soak&Sleep and perfect for your children.
Our buying department has been busy…they’ve developed the most amazing products which we think you, and more importantly, your children, will love. Sally Hancox, Soak&Sleep’s Buyer, has answered some questions to share the inspirations behind the collections…
What was the inspiration behind each of the collections?
We were keen to bring our beautiful bedding ranges and shop the look stories to a younger audience. We were inspired by moodboards, key trends and themes which helped us create 4 design stories appealing to both boys and girls. We’ve focused this range to the ages of 4-7 but what we love even more is how each piece can be mix and matched to create the perfect room for all kids (and even young adults). As we know, everyone’s sleep patterns and tastes are different.
What has been your most exciting development?
I really liked working on the cushions as these really helped bring the characters to life.
What is your favourite piece?
The Big Top blanket because it’s such a fun piece with it’s pom poms and bright chevrons.
Which product do you secretly want to get yourself?
Secretly I would love to get the lurex throw with clouds…I’m sure the other half would have something to say about it though, he’s more of a Dark Space fan!
Which bits look great mix and matching?
I think that the mix of products in Dark Space and also in Little Circus work together really well. But in terms of mixing with items outside of the Kids stories, I think the Magical story works really well with our linen and Egyptian plain dye in greys and pinks to make this into an older more sophisticated look. Also the lights are great cross story pieces, especially the task lamp and star night light
This series of blogs is going to uncover each range, sharing the details of the story and helping you shop the complete look! First up is the Magical range…this range is simply beautiful and fit for helping magical princesses get the best beauty sleep. Your children can quite literally feel as if they’re sleeping on a cloud as they snuggle up at nighttime. Soft pink, gentle greys and white tones make up the magic spell for beauty sleep in this range.
Let’s start with the Bed Linen, the most magical and beautifully illustrated designs are sprinkled over 100% fresh cotton fabric. One side is a fairy princess, magical wand in hand surrounded by her enchanted swan and fairy-tale castle. The reverse is decorated with soft pink clouds sprinkled with glittery crowns. Yes, that’s right it’s reversible! Reversible bed linens are perfect for allowing your children to choose their favourite design at night, without always having to change the sheets. When it is time to clean them, the bed linen is easily machine washed.
Complete this spell with our Magical Lurex Throw With Clouds , a soft knitted feel with a hint of magical sparkle. This blanket, which is also reversible, is the perfect complement to both sides of the uniquely illustrated Linen. It looks stunning draped over the end of the bed or can add an extra hint of sparkle to a bedroom chair. This throw is perfect for your little ones to snuggle up in day and night.
Onto the accessories, a soft knitted cushion which is shaped like a cloud and feels like a cloud. This soft pink cushion has a sparkly crown, complementing the sparkles that run through the Bed Linen and other products in this range.
But why stop the spell there? To complete the bedroom and ensure the room is full of magical moments, our Sparkle Knit Storage Basket is a must-have. The perfect place to store magical essentials. These grey cotton baskets also have a touch of sparkle as well as having a canvas lining to keep the precious items safe.
To add a magical glow to the room, use our Cloud and Swan LED lights and watch two of the beautiful illustrations come to life. The best part is they’re free-standing, no plugs or wires so can be placed anywhere.
