Gautier Studio

Gautier Studio
Friday and I will be off to Paris for Playtime this afternoon. A rather short and intense stay this time, but surely filled with lots of finds, catch ups and news. I will report!

And before I will send you into the week end I want to share this cool kids design label called Gautier Studio.

They call themselve a philosophy that adapts to the curious glance of children. To their way of playing, relaxing and waking up.

Founded by Adzif Inc and Maryline Lambelin, Gautier Studio is a home decor company that develops collections around play, creativity and inspiration. Because learning is at the heart of their product design. All of Gautier Studio products are designed with pleasant colours and minimalist graphic shapes.
Adhering to the principles of Montessori and harmonizing perfectly with the interior of your house.

The Tagada Playhouse, for example, is a must-have for your family home. The minimalist design provides endless possibilities for creating a secret hideaway inspired by your own tastes and ideas. Your kids first own home!  A kids-only space that will be their go-to when they want to play, make believe, and create. You can add a bed base to turn the little home into a toddler bed too.

Gautier Studio is also and above all a local story: The collections are created with the objective of offering natural products and are designed in their Montreal workshop.

Maryline’s ambition is to have Gautier Studio to travel all over the world to share her philosophy! Today is a little step into this direction…

Last week I took my two eldest to the cinema. Jurassic World!
Have you seen it yet?

Of course it inspired me to check what is out there for the little dinosaur fans at the moment.

And there is something for every age. From onesies to bedding or mobiles. Room decor or cool t-shirts…
This is what I found:

Zuri House

Zuri House
Good Morning! Today would be a good day to ask me how I juggle work and family life. Two of my kids are at home, because of a study day (tomorrow another one will be home because of a study day) and I have plenty to do. It will be a short week because on Wednesday I am heading off to Pitti Bimbo. And then directly over to London for Dot to Dot.
The laundry is running too and we have two extra guests in the house – guinea pigs – that the kids are taking care of for a while. But as so often: The craziness is ‘crazy’ but also exactly what we asked for and what makes every day a special day. I am sure you know what I mean.

But lets change the topic because I stumbled upon Zuri House over the week end. Those giant crochet dolls caught my eye and there are many lovely goodies for the kids room in Ola’s shop full of handmade knitted and crocheted Nordic home accessories too.

Zuri House was born out out of the belief that the products that surround us have direct influence over our well-being and emotions. Taking pride in ourselves on our authentic, pure ecologically clean and beautiful craft. We value the work of human hands and original ideas. We like to play with colours and experiment with materials. All our ideas come together under the roof of Zuri House. Offering delightful products and a high quality of design and craft.

Everything is hand knitted or hand crocheted from pure natural cotton. Charming home accessories and toys that will add some cosiness to your kids space. You can find rugs, poufs, storage bags or dolls.

I especially like these cute hanging baskets. A nice way to store things and so stylish.

 

Have a great week  everyone!

Kuum Wooden Toy Blocks

Kuum Wooden Toy Blocks
Kuum from the block! Totally in love with these super sleek, stylish and colourful wooden blocks.

KUUM is a collection of 202 building blocks crafted from beech tree wood that come in beautifully arranged units of 12 pieces. Each unit is infused with the stories of 12 elements and each unique piece embodies a small fragment of nature.

The 36 units express fundamental elements of rich Japanese nature like pebbles, twigs, and sea shells. And the 12 block units represent these themes: soil, fire, flower, tree, mountain, sea, ice, stone, earth, moon, sun and sand. With that they become a part of something larger and special. And even after being built, they will still remind us of the beautiful, original elements.

The lengths and angles of each piece have been carefully calculated and designed to maximize the number of combinations possible.

The block units consist of 36 unique shapes and colours. These include flat boards, thin rods, L-shaped and U-shaped blocks that fit snugly, as well as unstable pieces, which you can stack to produce a wobbly structure.

Their appealing colours and shapes will instantly inspire you to pick them up and start building. The pieces will enable you to use building blocks in ways you never thought possible in order to create colourful and unique objects. The possibilities are truly infinite. Each set comes with a card showing some ideas of what you can achieve with one theme.

KUUM is developed in collaboration with monogoto, a creative firm in Portland, USA.

Welcome June with these finds!

paul paula blog
Hello June! We are blessed with sun. More and more and people are getting a little anxious. Does it mean that the rest of the summer (that did not even start, officially) will be crap? But hey, we are here to enjoy. As long as it lasts!

We even made a trip to the beach after school this week and there is more ice cream involved than I want should whatever share.

It is lovely and feels so good.

My list of bookmarked things was crying for help too. So here is just another Friday list to support the summer feeling!

Enjoy!
