It is a bank holiday today and I did not want to write a post actually. But then I came across the website of Julie Ansiau and was lost a little in her colorful world.

And thought – let’s share this with you.

So, just some inspiration for you. Don’t be afraid of colors is probably the title. Enjoy and have a nice long week end.

By Niné moda infantil

By Niné
Good Morning! We are very romantic over here today but I found this super cute Spanish brand called By Niné and just have to share. It is so adorable.

Unfortunately the website is only available in Spanish but the pictures speak very well for themselves and I see that they do clothes for babies and then boys and girls up to 12 years.

Most of the garments are made from linen {such a lovely fabric, especially in summer} and the details are amazing. Beautiful bows, ruffles and lace details.

Romantic summer dresses, cute play-suits with crossed backs and even some black pieces here and there.

Bookshelf ideas for the kidsroom

kids bookshelf ideas

Kids books are the best, aren’t they? I mean I love books in general and can hardly pass a book store but the illustrations and the creativity that come with kids books are so inspiring.

We have many books for the kids and we love to choose books when we go ‘home’ – to Germany or France – and want to bring back books in ‘our’ languages. These moments usually take a good amount of time but especially in Germany book stores are real lifestyle shops these days and have something for everyone. But back to the topic.

With four kids, a couple of languages and lots of book lovers the book shelf is busy. And I always like to use some of the extra beautiful ones as decoration as well. Do you do the same?

That is why I went out looking for some inspiration on how to display the kids’ books best.

Above is a great idea. A shelving system made out of crates. You can find those at your local hardware store. Just make sure to get the treated ones so no risks of splints.

Pitti Bimbo – 22 – 24. June 2017

pitti bimbo

Today in one month Pitti Bimbo will open it’s doors again. I had such a good time and show in January that I am very much looking forward to this edition. Of course I am always curious to see the new collections, run into friends and catch up with people from the industry, another lovely part is: Florence. Florence in June!

I cannot wait and really hope to see some of you at Pitti Bimbo next month.

Let’s have a look what will await us at the Fortezza da Basso and where you will see me for sure. One thing I really enjoyed at Pitti is that instead of one big hall you have several smaller {and not so small} buildings that are dedicated to different themes.
