Clucky Alert: Adorable Baby + Kids Decor
Today on the blog I’m showcasing an Aussie biz that produces some of the most amazing and unique decor pieces for nurseries. The range is so good I might just have to have a baby of my own so I can furnish my home with these creations. That, or I’m about to buy a mobile for my cat. It could go either way!
Jolie Petite Chose is the name of this stunning website, run by Aussie mum Jodie and launched in 2009. While Jodie collaborates with her sister on the stunning e-Design service you see above, the products in the online store are the big kahuna for the website.
Translated from French, Jolie Petite Chose means ‘Pretty Little Things’, and after taking a look at the decor delights on offer here, the name is very fitting.
So what inspired this Melbourne mum to start a business creating mobiles, blankets, cushions and more? Necessity!
“I was into my first three-months of maternity leave, and had been unsuccessful at finding a mobile I loved for my daughter,” Jodie explains. “So off I went and got myself a sewing machine and started making my own!”.
Having worked in the fashion industry for 11 years as a knitwear production manager, Jodie enjoys coming home and transitioning from womenswear to creating for kids.
“It gives me such joy, freedom and allows me to have fun and be creative!”.
The new baby blanket range from Jolie Petite Chose (pictured below) is perhaps the most exciting addition to the store; a creation that was spawned, once again, from necessity (the things you learn as a mother must be invaluable I reckon!).
“I know when my daughter was only a baby I would rotate through at least three different blankets,” Jodie explains. “And I have been so overwhelmed by the positive feedback!”
So while my plans to have a child are put on hold, I’ll be hitting Jolie Petite Chose the moment one of my gal pals gets pregnant. Ladies, no pressure or anything (but please hurry up).
