Merry Christmas, best of 2017 and some great finds!

long blue straw

Good Morning!
It is Friday, it is just two days before Christmas, it is time for a Friday list and also time for a little round up of 2017.

After that I will take a little break – maybe share a post or two and probably post something on Instagram too. But overall, it will be a little more quiet here.

And then in January – fresh start. New collections, fair trade season, new theme for the next shooting with Maru and and and…

2017 was full of happenings and events. Fairs, many trips, shootings, new projects and 2018 looks very promising already as well.

Thank you all for following, encouraging, supporting and for helping to realize ideas and dreams!

A collection distinguished by its clear and uncluttered shapes and by its quality and solid workmanship. Suited for all ages: children, teenagers and adults.

Isabelle and Marc Winterhalder-Anderhalden, both architects, make sure that design does not stop at the children’s room door. Blueroom will grow with you and your child and is designed and made in Switzerland.

Confiture De Poeme

confiture de poeme.

Today we celebrate Santa Lucia here in Sweden. The kids dress up, there is lots of singing, gingerbread and coffee for the adults. Cosy!

And therefore I have something very sweet for you here today. The universe of Anaïs Natiembé called Confiture De Poeme.

Beautiful dolls handmade in Lyon, France with a lot of love, details and creativity.

‘My sources of inspiration are often Asian, because I love the Japanese culture, especially the big eyes, often fearful, shy or grumpy.’

I love these very feminine soft sculptures with their slender bodies and small faces with lots of personality! Sweet and well made, packed in beautiful handmade boxes and so full of heart warming details. Think sequin embroidery, pearls and golden threads.
The color and fabric selections are on point and the embroidered touches make these dolls truly special.

Bunny & Clyde

Bunny & Clyde

Bunny & Clyde is a Irish/South African nursery brand that create timeless design-led furniture for children.
The range of heirloom quality furniture and products are versatile, safe, extremely well made, and importantly, for moms and dads too!

Limited edition furniture that’s designed to be passed on to future generations and that can be re-purposed in other areas of the home.


‘We believe that innovative design and sustainability go hand in hand. Not only do our beautiful and special pieces grow with children, they are also enduring features that make the family home – family treasures and family stories to hand down to future generations. When we teach our children that products are meant to last a lifetime, we are teaching them sustainable living principles and we are inspiring a future generation to instinctively understand and appreciate good design; We are investing in future generations because after all, our children and their children after that will inherit the world we leave behind for them.’

With a passion for wood’s natural beauty, Bunny & Clyde have found a way to bring some nature into the nursery.
