12. KIDS DESIGN - george at asda

Completely at the other end of the price scale from Boden comes a selection of snapshots from the more affordable George at Asda. The owl above has a fun co-ordinating print that I thought was clever with large coloured hearts scattered with a layer of tiny black hearts. George designs are sold throughout the UK in Asda supermarkets and some items are available online here.
