Wishing you joy this festive season. Welcome to the 2022 special edition Merrymaker Minty Digital Magazine. It's filled with sunny inspiration for the kids in your life. We share our most popular room reveals of 2022, craft, cooking and so many gift ideas from our favouite brands. For me, the festive season is always about joy. Creating joy and sharing joy with family and friends is what makes this time of the year so special. Extending that joy to people we don't know so well, if at all, is where the real magic happens. Whether it be a random act of kindness, a friendly smile to a stranger or donating to charity, I am always left with a glow of happiness when I take time out to help others and spread joy. This festive season, why not share the joy with our local entrepreneurs, creatives and makers. The people out there working so hard to make a difference to the way we consume. It is a joy to buy from these businesses, and to know that each purchase is having a direct and positive impact on a family just like ours. Wishing you joy this festive season, MINTY

thier homes with Christmas lights for others to delight in as they pass by. I love seeing the innocent delight on my son’s face on Christmas morning as he discovers that the big man in red has been to visit, and then watching him have a ball running around with his cousins at Christmas lunch. The festive season is full of magic moments like these, making it the time of year I look forward to the most.
The holiday season offers us time to slow down, to be with loved ones, getting outside and enjoying the warmer weather and reflect on the year that was. It’s my favourite time of year – full of festivities, giving, celebrating and relaxing. This time of year brings out the best in people, from the thoughtful gestures of gratitude and giving that are shared everywhere from workplaces to family tables, to the beautiful way some people adorn

We always look forward to spending warm days at the beach, so anything that makes our beach adventures fun and easy as a family of 5 is on the must have list this year, and we recently got the kids a cubby house, so adding to their play kitchen will be great for their pretend play.
When it comes to Christmas gifts for my kids, I like to get them each something they need, something to read, something to wear and something to play with - so everyone will get a gift each that falls into those categories this year.
Plus, the boys need some new summer outfits, and books always on the list.
My two oldest boys have started sharing a room this year and are always needing more storage, so I am wanting to get them mismatched Mustard Made lockers

Nail it with Neutrals
ST YLIST MADELIN E MCFARL AN E PHOTOGRAPHY MICH ELLE YOU NG
Our feelings towards a neutral nursery are anything but and it turns out, we aren’t alone! Those gorgeous earthy tones and creamy whites are trending, and it’s easy to see why so many new parents are leaning towards this style when it comes to decorating their bubs first room.
While life as you know it changes, a neutral nursery means your homes current design theme doesn’t need to go out the window with all the other daily formalities. Whatever your style – classic, modern, boho or coastal, the clean and airy vibes of a neutral nursery will work in effortlessly with the rest of the house.
With the huge push towards sustainability, a neutral palette allows pieces to grow with your child as they shift from nursery to bedroom. Likewise, transitional tones mean pieces can be reused for any future bubs, regardless of gender. These opportunities to minimize unnecessary waste is a big win in our eyes (and in your pockets!) P 51
"A perfect base to build upon with subtle pops of colour and little reflections of your child’s personality."
It's safe to say, a neutral nursery is a trend we are absolutely on board with. Plenty of texture, natural materials and tones that hug the space, it would be hard to not have beautiful dreams when your room looks like it’s been plucked from one.

Gingham is Trending: Two Rooms by Liberty Interiors DESIGNER NICOLE ROSEN BERG, LIBERT Y INTERIORS PHOTOGRAPHY ELISE SCOTT
Gingham is proving to be one of the hottest interior trends of the year. The classic checkerboard pattern has made a comeback with an effortless appeal that is simple yet cheerful. Whether it’s in bold hues or neutral tones, gingham is a versatile pattern that commands attention. It was love at first sight when I saw these images come through from Liberty Interiors. Nicole has created not just one, but two stunning rooms using this classic check wallpaper in a contemporary Melbourne home.
g. Liber Liberty Interiors founder and interior decorator Nicole Rosenberg is the queen of children’s rooms that exude style and personality. What started out as a passion project when decorating the bedrooms for her own children, has now blossomed and Nicole is one of Australia’s most sought-after interior decorators.
i s Tr e n d
The bold use of colour is her signature style, combined with design elements that merge the playful nature of children’s rooms with the aesthetic of a modern home.

With a soft palette of pastel tones, this bedroom for Sonny is a calming space to rest after a busy day. A playful space, designed to transition a little boy from a nursery to a big room whilst reflecting his bubbly personality. Mum of 4, Ashlee Jay has included custom-designed pieces, such as the wall shelves she designed and had made by her father-in-law, a bed by Melb Design Co and wall decals by Blond Noir. P60
“I love the arch wall decal behind the bed and the sun. We always get a lot of comments on the custom bookshelves on the wall, which I designed and my father-in-law made. They both are such a focal point and hard to say which is my favourite!”
