Today I share some of my favourite kids decor shops (most of them with on-line stores) that can assist in creating a lovilee nursery or kids room! Most of them are local, but the on-line International ones that I mention, all ships to South Africa. Some of them I have made use of personally and the others’ items I covet and hope to get my hands on shortly!
1. Hello Dolly Designs
Chrisinda is well known for her gorgeous wall decor vinyls as well as her decals for weddings. She recently launched a monochrome linen range is specifically aimed at kids upgrading to a ‘big boy’ or ‘big girl’ room. Most of the ranges’ designs are unisex, but there are also items with splashes of pinks specifically for princesses. I did a full introductory article on the range in this link.

2. Little Love Kids
I have ordered from these lovilees personally, their website is easy to use, payments are seamless and their service is great. They constantly add new items on their site and I frequently visit to keep up to date with the latest trends and products. In addition to room decor and furniture they also stock some cute kids and baby clothes, decorative wall vinyls and greeting cards. The spotty bedding in the image above is also from them and really amazing!
3. H&M Home
I am almost shy to admit that I did not really know anything about H&M until I visited one of their clothing stores that opened in South Africa. I was pleased with their quality of products and browsed their local website to view their range when I discovered that they had two ‘home’ stores in South Africa! One at the Mall of Africa and the other in Cape Town at the V&A Waterfront. Their ranges are stunning and they have a wide selection of kids decor items that can spruce up a room at an affordable budget. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! The Track carpet below is from them as well.
