I’m always on the lookout for nice kids design brands and this week I came across Belle and Boo, a British lifestyle brand known for their original, nostalgic ‘story book’ illustrations of children.

Mandy Sutcliffe, the creator of Belle & Boo studied illustration at Leeds Metropolitan University, during which time she went on a university exchange trip to France. It was here that Mandy’s love for illustrating children truly blossomed as she spent many hours in the Parisian parks drawing the beautiful French children.

The collection which includes art, textiles and paper goods is loved by grown-ups and children alike. I have selected some of my favourite items. Want to see more? Visit Belle and Boo’s website.
