Spotlight on – Product stylist – Dilya Ehrhardt

Hello and welcome to the Kids Teepee Tent blog, my little corner of the internet dedicated to kids interior design, mindful living and play time!

I would like to introduce you to a lovely, creative mum I met via Instagram, Dilya Ehrhardt, a Russian lady living in Germany. Having worked previously as an art director within an advertising firm you can see she has a creative eye and flair for using colour, since becoming a mum to her 2 children Dilya has been turning her hand to children’s styling and is now one of my favourite insta collaborators, the images she creates with her clever styling arrangements and great product selection are gaining her a quickly growing audience and it’s not difficult to see why…here are a selection of her images.

(she painted this gorgeous wall herself based on the amazing wall treatments of Peek & Pack). I told you she is creative. Anyone else what to see a photo of the Moozle teepee by that wall?!

Follow Dilya on Instagram for more inspiring kids interior and fashion here – @nyearthur

Dilya and her children have the MIDI size Moozle teepee, available here.

To see more behind the scenes images, what’s inspiring me right now, customer photos and other work with collaborators come and join me on Instagram here, don’t forget to say ‘hi’ x

We are so happy to see the blossom and have lots of exciting projects on the go…including a BIG plan for the little dolls house in these photos. It’s part way through it’s make-over then it’s getting some very special items made to go inside it, more of this to come soon.

The teepee in the photographs is a new design with limited edition Laura Ashley Home fabric, only 4 of these have been made in the MIDI size so if it ticks your boxes you’d better grab one quickly here before they are gone forever!

The April in blossom photo is part of an on-going challenge I’ve given myself (lets see if I can last the year), you can see the other photos so far over on my instagram account.

Wait what…

Hello, it seems I have been somewhat neglecting my lil’ole blog… I really don’t know how all those ‘proper’ bloggers manage to do it… keep up with exciting blog posts, wonderful photography, amazingly styled homes and children… not to mention fabulous looking meals! It’s all to much for me… my kids (Just 2 of them… don’t get me started on bloggers with 3, 4, 5, 22 children…) finish school at 2pm which means I have between 8.50am – 1.50pm to work (email, accounts, sew, order materials etc, pack orders, clean/tidy) hence not much bloggin’ gets done… don’t get me started on evenings! I suppose I do have time between 9.30 and 10.30pm… some eveings… maybe I should try to blog then? Nah, life’s to short! Enjoy your time, do what you want with it, lets stop pressuring ourselves 🙂

So, this post is really a post about nothing… I just wanted to post ‘something’ so my blog isn’t stuck on ‘Christmas 2015’ any longer.

Here’s some lovey photographs from someone who can do it all, one of my customers, Mae Gabriel, follow her on Instagram to see more of her amazingness here. Follow me if you want to see lots of teepees, some coffee and ‘stuff’ here 😉

Mae also has a beautiful blog here.

Holy-moley… I blogged this year! Where’s the coffee?

It’s all Black and White

Helloeee, happy Sunday! I wanted to post some pics of the Black+White Shapes teepee I made a few months ago and only just pulled out of my stock cupboard to photograph (I’d almost forgotten I made it, it’s been sooooo long!). I still love all of the B+W kids rooms and artwork popping up all over Pinterest and Instagram, especailly the images by Chloe @chloeuberkid (bottom 2 images above). Chloe is a contributor at La Petite Mag so as you can imagine, she has great style, her house is full of amazing styling inspiration and top picks from some of the best designers and interior accessory innovators around, but if you can’t stretch to doing a whole room over, you could always satisfy your inner interior designer by making over your doll house!

Black+White Shapes teepee by Moozle, available on Etsy here.

Black+White Toadstool cushions by Moozle, available on Etsy here.

Skeleton Doll by Studio Escargot, available on Etsy here.

Black+White Goemetric cushion, by SCENERY, available on SCENERY here.

Black circles string garland by Haakland, available soon to order via Moozlehome.

I’m just going to sneak in this customer comment that came in on my Etsy review page this week #glowingwithpridehere

I cannot recommend this product strongly enough. We purchased a customized teepee for my son’s first birthday and it was of beautiful quality, exactly as requested, and will surely be an integral part of our family for many years to come! Rebecca, NH, USA

Thank you Becca x

Christmas 2014 Round-up

Hello and welcome new readers and old, it has been a really busy Christmas (and New Year so far) so appologies for the lack of blog action recently.

I’d like to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who ordered Moozle tents in the run up to Christmas, we did indeed sell out of some designs right at the end (again! even though we made a lot more stock in anticipation), so sorry to anyone who didn’t get to order in time, shipping times to some destinations mean ordering quite some time in advance.

There’s been a lovely stream of photos coming in over on instagram, so great to see where the teepees end up and to see them in their new homes being enjoyed by your little one’s is what it’s all about.

Here’s a little taste of instagrams #moozleteepee #moozlehome @katemoozle

Butterflies and Toadstools

Well if you follow me on instagram you have probably seen more of my new designs lately than by following my blog! There’s not been much time recently for ANYTHING other than packing teepees so thought I’d squeeze in this up-date. Spaces for custom designed teepees, like this one, in time for Christmas are just about all booked up now. You are welcome to email me via the website with your enquiry.

Can I get away with this as a Hallowe’en post do you think? It’s not that scary!!-2 -1

Cloud cushions coming soon.

party food Food-detail candles

A little boy here turned 4 last weekend so we had a woodland themed party to celebrate, lots of woodland themed party food topped off with a toadstool cake.

The kids loved seeing the party food, lots of ooohs and aaaahhh’s 🙂 The favours were individual chocolates shaped as toadstools or hedgehogs in clear celophane with ribbon on – I didn’t manage to photograph them as I was too busy keeping an eye on everyone! We did an Autumn craft project of threading lots of pine cones, conkers (horse chestnuts), leaves, acorn cups and other woodland bits onto string – they actually look really lovey – I’ll post some pics of ours when I get them off my phone!

For the cake, I used 3 layers of Victoria sponge to make the top of the toadstool, glued together with strawberry jam and whipped cream and sort of sculped it into shape, then covered with a light layer of butter icing before draping and molding the rolled out fondant icing over the top. It took about an hour to decorate the cake (putting the butter icing in the fridge for a few minutes between each stage).

I’m sneaking in this customer photo too as the tree kind of goes with the woodland theme (see what I did there), thank you to Lianne for the super photo. See more customer pics on the Moozle instagram feed here.

Hello there! These lovely photos are by Connection Photography of the very lovely Fox family, taken on the East Coast, USA.

What a gorgeous looking family, their baby girl is so cute! You can follow more pics of the family on Instagram here. And her outfit, right? The headband is by A Tiny Arrow, gold mini moccasins by Mini Moxie, the sequined dress was made from a women’s dress thrifted by her mom. If I could get away with wearing that outfit, I would!

The teepee in the background is indeed a BIG Moozle teepee, these are proving very popular with photographers at the moment as tepees are still in hot demand for family and particularly 1st birthday photo sessions, there’s another one in the pipeline I’m waiting to share with you, Moozlehome Facebook fans will already have had a sneaky preview of this! ‘Like’ us on Facebook to be first to see all of the new designs, customer photos and special offers as they come in.

New customer review (lots more on the website and Etsy shop)…

Dear Kate, thank you for the beautiful teepee we all love it my little boy went straight in it and plays in it every day. Many thanks Samantha, Nottinghamshire, UK

Thank you so much, please keep your reviews and photos and Instagram tags comming in, I LOVE to see them.

Shippy and Lulu

photo1-2.jpg

Aaaahhhhh, look at these guys! Introducing Shippy the fluffy, much loved toy rabbit and Lulu the super sweet looking daschund pet dog of my customers daughter, I hope she likes it, I’ve not heard back yet. The little girl loves Shippy and Lulu, tulips, teal blue and fresh greens with a pop of pink – what do your kids love the most? This design is onto a MIDI size base.

Wait until you see the new Moozle teepee design I’m working on, I hope to get it finished next week, not sure where I’ll photograph that one – it needs a special space. And there’s a fab new photoshoot planned on Monday for a different design, I’m busy making props for it at the moment, think tassle garlands with neon orange/pink/yellow and gold, neon body paint and pink flamingoes!… I can’t wait!

I am always on the look out for beautiful spaces to photograph my Moozle teepees in, if you are interested in sharing your space for a photoshoot in exchange for a plain teepee (size of your choice) please get in touch via the website here.

I am also working with some amazing kids stylists and interior designers accross the world via instagram, if you’d like to know more and possibly be involved (if I like your ig feed and you’d like a teepee in exchange for some fab photos with #moozle @katemoozle tags) then drop me an email with a link to your instagram.
