Simple Kids A/ W 2018/19

Simple Kids A/ W 2018/19
So… we are heading towards the first week end after ‘back to school’. After a first very hesitant start for Leonor she did so well yesterday and today and just went to her classroom all confident and happy. Romy moved up to the Middle Year Program and will learn a new language (Spanish!) and start new topics like design and politics. Antoine is basically just eagerly waiting for his toe to make a full recovery. He misses football with his friends…

And for us – it means that another school year started. It shows us how quick our children are growing. Back to school is always a bit like a mirror. Where we all stand in front and see a year that has passed behind us…

But lets not get sentimental here right now. No, lets have a look at Simple Kids and their new collection. Children’s fashion from Belgium. I will not come up with my usual ravings and admiration… no no… as a good reader you know why I love it so much!

And the new Autumn/ Winter collection from Simple Kids does not disappoint. Mix cool sweaters with fabulous knits. Printed blouses, velvet pants and a few ruffles just where they add a little extra without being too girly. Perfect!

Bonpoint Autumn/ Winter 2018/ 19

bonpoint winter 2018
If you love French children’s fashion then you definitely know Bonpoint, the quintessence of French Style!
A classic and a brand that shaped the ‘French look’ like probably nobody else in the business. Created by Marie-France and Bernard Cohen – internationally renowned for their concept-store, Merci. These two also created Bonton, just to close the circle.

Bonpoint offers high quality garments for children and teenagers (the bigger sizes do fit us mums too, just FYI). Handmade in France with the best materials and each garment is unique. French magic!

The best natural knits for children!

The best natural knits for children!
Good Morning! My kids just went back to school this morning (yes already!) and after 9 weeks of summer break, everyone was ready for today!

Back to School also means – Autumn is around the corner. I know, we are all still in the summer mood and enjoy the amazing weather. (sorry for those that actually had extreme heat)
But have you noticed that the evenings are a little shorter and that it is a good idea to bring a cardigan when out late or early in the mornings?

Perfect time to look out for some great layering pieces. And knits are perfect for that! Yes, I know, I love knits and everything about them. But, again, investing in a timeless piece of gorgeous knit is one of the best things you can do. Size up, wear it as a jacket in the in between season, as a cardigan in winter and pass it on to siblings later! What is not to love?

 

Therefore, I browsed around and selected my favourite natural (think: gender neutral) knits for babies and children:

Smart family space in Stockholm’s Södermalm district

Smart family space in Stockholm's Södermalm district
Oh hello! I am back. You probably noticed that I took a tiny break, without a warning… but now we are back and I have a really smart family apartment for you today. It is Interior Tuesday after all and this small space accommodates three children.

Situated in the hip neighborhood of Södermalm in Stockholm. An old apartment with many preserved original features, beautiful windows and a lush, sunny courtyard to enjoy.

And of course I love this built in bunk bed that sleeps three children. Clever use of space!

A boho inspired nursery in northern France

nursery simple boho
Anne from Le chien a taches (the spotted dog) just finished the nursery for her newborn girl. And I love the simplicity and inviting details in this little room in the city of Lille, France.

In general I really recommend following Anne’s blog, it is super inspiring! Full of beautiful travels, life and home inspiration.

So it was no surprise to discover the charming nursery that Anne created to be the perfect nest for the new family member.

A calming wall colour, neutral furniture and cute accessories make this room a welcoming oasis for the little person…
