When a photographer releases a collection of prints called the "arty farty" package, it's a pretty safe bet that their work has a sense of humour about it. Tim Crawshaw's lovely photographs printed on canvas are vibrant and fun, and would look brilliant in a kid's room or playroom. Imagine how stunning the pink pipe and the clothes pegs would look in a white room, with cushions or furniture in co-ordinating colours. Teens would also love these pictures, and the website has lots more to choose from. Prices start at $795, so they are an investment piece, but your child will never out grow them, and they would look fabulous anywhere in the house. Check out the whole collection, plus packages like the "arty farty" collection at www.timcrawshaw.com.

Nothing satisfies that nesting instinct more than choosing your baby's first bed. What expectant mother has not spent many happy moments smoothing down the covers of that little bassinette or Moses basket, dreaming of the baby who would fill it. (Most of us are not dreaming about the many hours we will spend trying to get the baby to actually go to sleep in the bed but that's the beauty of hormones....)
Sleepi Spaces Moses Baskets launched in May of this year, and they make a lovely option for that all important first bed. They come with a babysafe mattress, mattress protector, fitted sheet, matching minky backed blanket and a large dust storage bag. You can choose from the classic fixed stand or the Sleepi Rocker, and both come in a choice of natural timber or ivory. Sets start from a very reasonable $340.
