Part 1 of the latest #TTStyleSeries featuring Boori furniture is here and we can't wait to share!
We were so excited to have the talented Jacinda Malloy from Hide & Sleep interiors in the Tinitrader studio to put together four fresh nursery looks.
The Boori Lucia collection is clean and modern, providing a sense of serenity to a room. The Lucia cot converts all the way through to a double bed with an add on, easy to assemble conversion kit, making it a practical investment. The Lucia has amazing features including two base heights for easy access and, teamed with the matching Lucia dresser, completes a room with effortless style.
Best of all, you can shop these looks with our dedicated shopping page!
We were lucky enough to speak with Jacinda to find out more about the inspirations behind her rooms and the Hide & Sleep story.
1. How did you become to be a stylist for kids rooms and nurseries? How did Hide & Sleep begin?
I was studying interior design in 2010 but weighing up whether I loved it and wanted to make a career out of it. I then was asked to design a nursery and just loved every minute of the process.
It was then I decided I wanted to design kid’s rooms and Hide and Sleep just grew from there.
2. What was your inspiration in styling the nurseries for Boori?
I wanted to show people that the Boori cot can work in any style of room. I styled the Lucia cot in this shoot in 4 different ways just to show the versatility. I used the monochrome trend in one style series, a more earthy feel in another look, a sweet girl’s nursery, and then another modern boy’s room style.
The Lucia looked perfect in all of these settings.
3. What do you love about the Boori Lucia Collection?
I love the Lucia cot as it’s both classic yet modern. The fact it converts to a toddler bed, day bed and double bed is even more of impressive.
Boori has also been around for many years and many of my clients have Boori cots so I know not only are they stylish but functional and durable.
4. How would you describe your signature look?
I hope I don’t have a signature look. Every client is different and every room I design I want to reflect my client’s style not mine.
5. What are your favourite trends this season?
I just love boho rooms at the moment. I love mixing and matching modern and vintage and boho style allows me to mix and match different linens, cushions, and throw rugs.
I love dream catchers, woven wall hangings, and hanging indoor chairs, all of these lean themselves to the boho trend.
6. What do you get up to in your spare time?
I have the cutest little dog Poppy, so I spend lots of time with her usually on the beach as we live close by. I also barrack for Richmond (AFL) and my nan and I go to every game that we play in Melbourne. It’s usually freezing, so I take a blanket and nan and I sit with our hot drinks and donuts cheering our players on. It’s my way of relaxing and spending time with my nan.
8. What is your guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up??
Desserts… any desserts.. I would skip a main meal and straight to dessert if I could. My friends will tell you that I don’t like sharing either.
9. If you are not working, what is your typical Sunday routine?
I don’t have a typical routine. I usually take Poppy to the beach for a walk but from then on I could be doing anything. I love getting out and about so it depends what is on in Melbourne. If there is a good market you will find me there, otherwise I like to go to exhibitions, the library, sporting events or movies.
I love spending time with my friends, so I usually try to drag them along to something, although none of them seem to want to join me at the footy. Not sure why?
10. If a kid walked up to you asking for advice and you only had a few minutes to give them your best tip, what would it be?
To follow the Tigers. They have the best theme song in the AFL and following football is so much fun.
11. What are 3 big things you always stand by when you are styling up a room?
I really only stand by one thing when I am styling and that is to inject personality into the room.
I like to include personal and sentimental items in kids rooms and if I am styling for a shoot then I tend to add something a little quirky (which is part of my personality). When designing for my clients, I really try to get to know them as much as I can so that their room is filled with their personality and not just a room styled with things that I love and that are on trend.
12. What is one tip you can give to parents who are styling their kid's rooms or nursery's?
Involve your children. If you want to purchase new linen or cushions, narrow it down to 3 or 4 then show them your choices and have them pick. If buying online, address the parcel to them so they have a surprise in the mail and have them help you place the cushion, or choose a place for the print. Let them be involved as much as possible
