La Clinica Design

La Clinica Design
Ending the week in style is my way of knowing that I will have a good week end. Or something like that…

This baby swing shows perfectly that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Designed by La Clinica Design. A Madrid based brand that creates timeless products with a very fine regard for the details.
Founded by two Italian friends and designers who work across a variety of disciplines. Ranging from architecture, interior, product design and art direction. Their love for good design and a great respect for our environment makes them believe that people have the power to shape things by choosing what to buy.

Because objects are not just useful for specific occasions but can speak and share our ideals with others. All the pieces are handmade in Spain one by one.

The Baby Swing by La Clinica Design is one of the most noted products of the brand.

ILA Y ELA

ILA Y ELA
Ila y Ela is a lovely discovery. And since you really loved the colourful family home I showed you yesterday, I am pretty sure you will love this too.

Far away from perfect toys that fill our Instagram feeds, this Spanish design company offers handmade products, created in a traditional way.
Founded by Natalia, she brings the Mediterranean style in our homes. With a certain simplicity and use of very high-quality materials. The result are very special items for children´s rooms.

Don’t you just love the lion heads? Everything is exclusive, original and the materials are ecological (cotton, wool or alpaca) to create unique pieces. Each item is hand crafted with much love and care.

These accessories are such a sweet complement to the children’s room. Playful, different and cute. Perfect if you are looking for a lovely gift too!

The first in March 2018 {Friday List}

LOURS-PARIS
Wow! It is March already, it is snowing outside my window while writing this and I have not done a Friday list for a while now. Sounds familiar… I know. I have the feeling that I always write this now when I start a new list.

But it also means that I have some really cool stuff to share with you! Interiors, small brands with big hearts and lovely products. A very cool play kitchen and a new brand with rad Vintage styles for little people.

There are also two features with me, if you are interested.

Let’s start:

Petit Picotin

Petit Picotin
From bedding to decoration Petit Picotin has all the essential products to accompany your baby from its first days.
And I am so happy to finally share this brand with you. I saw them a long time ago but the website was not in place yet. And I know that you like to be able to click through, maybe shop or at least get more ideas about the products… so I was waiting. And finally, here we are.

Astrid Geffroy launched Petit Picotin last year and offers a collection of customisable birth gifts.

And with that gifting got a whole new meaning. You can find little toys, home accessories, storage bags, backpacks or beddings and much more. Everything is made from beautiful materials (100% French washed linen) , highest quality and the colour range just makes me swoon. Decorative elements, textile accessories and bed linen, with a rather classic style, will obviously please all happy parents.

Each piece is unique and make them perfect gifts. Packaged in a beautiful gift box that can be kept to store little things and that will become a box to remember. A box of little treasures.

Bedtonic

Bedtonic
Oh Good Morning!

I just left Paris and arrived in London. Amazing how quick we are able to change countries here in Europe, don’t you think?

My head is full of impressions and lovely talks from the week end and I feel that showing you a lovely home accessories brand is a perfect start into the new week.

I found Bedtonic and next to the products I also fell in love with Julie’s story. It is often the best part of these small brands – the stories, their backgrounds and the passion!

Julie grew up in New Zealand in a small town called Lake Wanaka. A childhood spent surrounded by snow-capped mountains, crystal clear rivers and big beautiful lakes. Everything was pure nature and outdoor living.

‘My mother was a seamstress, so I was surrounded by fabric at an early age and I remember a constant stream of ladies in and out for fittings and alterations, with patterns, pins and the old singer sewing machine taking pride of place on the dining table!’

Funny enough Julie only found out about the amazing comfort of sleeping in linen a few years ago. And that changed everything! She changed from being a cotton sheet lover to a linen fan.

‘I love the way It envelopes you but doesn’t stifle you like some heavy cottons. And the fact it’s keeps you cool in the heat and warm in the winter months.’
