The weather has started to change and although we’re glad the sun hasn’t gone completely, a cooler night means we can snuggle up in The Bright Company pyjamas. The Bright Company was founded in 2012 by Alienor Falconer and are proud to fly the Brit flag for design and production is all done here.
The unisex designs have strong graphic prints and great colour palettes for all your lil’ ones. The slim jyms are snug fitting so they don’t ride up in the night or during play. The brand have recently introduced bedding range to match the seasons pj’s too, which have been a great success. The Bright Company currently cater for ages 0-5years and we couldn’t be happier to have them on Lil’ Beans.
Below is our mini q&a with Ali:
Where and who do you live with?
I live in Brighton with my two kids, Corwin 3 1/2 and Effie 1 1/2 and my husband Simon.
TBC pj’s have had great print designs from day 1, what inspires you?
Thanks! That is a tricky and an easy answer really. Nothing specific, the whole world inspires me, patterns I see on tiles, colour combinations I see anywhere and everywhere, interiors, magazines, fashion, I find inspirations all around, I’m never switched off from that side of my brain I suppose.
Motherhood and running a business can be challenging, have you achieved a happy balance yet? What is your current favourite thing to do as a family?
Some days the balance is amazing, some days it’s tricky. We have pretty complicated Childcare but as my ‘job’ can be pretty flexible it works for us. I love being able to take my big one to pre-school every morning. I work 4 days a week (plus evenings etc!) but every day I spend part of it with the children, be it breakfast or dinner or the afternoon.
Our family weekends usually consist of some beach time and the kids love swimming so that’s usually on the agenda. We also love checking out National Trust places and have had some brilliant camping trips this summer. We are also talking about buying a boat so if we get that then I imagine lots of sailing trips!
