Room of Magical Designs
I am always looking for contemporary and funky bedding for my toddler. I also think quilts and throws make lovely gifts. Since everyone tends to do toys and games, why not give a kid something to truly cherish. I remember having a ‘blankie’ that I couldn’t do without, in fact I ended up taking it to college! Sadly there weren’t a lot of options when it came to linen and bedding for kids while I was growing up and thank god it’s different for our kids now. So my sweet little ‘blankie’ was brown and grey, looking back I think I may have preferred a purple one!
I was one such gift hunting quest that took me to a lovely store called ‘Abracadabra’, in a local mall that stocked all the bed and linen essentials one can possibly need for a kid. The decor itself was so inviting and the windows looked adorable decked with patchwork comforters and fully dressed cots. Inside lay the best surprises. I found original designs, unique patterns and amazing variety. The nicest part was the use of
colours for boy’s rooms, I was happy to see a generous sprinkling of lilacs, yellows and oranges apart the usual blues and more blues. I picked up an adorable jungle theme comforter for my daughter’s 7 year old friend and from what his mom says, he loves it, especially since the mane is textured with faux fur.
I love how kids love whimsical stuff and I found some of that too, like a quilted wall hanging of a farm scene. It adds a very nice touch for a country style
nursery and again, a unique gift for a house warming or even a birthday. Abracadabra stocks baby furniture likes cots and high chairs, bed and bath linen for infants and kids and a variety of gift sets and decorative items mostly made of fabric. I find their stuff organic in style and material, there is nothing better than pure cotton for kids. Also check out the lampshades and cot mobiles made of fabric with thematic patchwork to match the bedding. Very magical indeed!
