Why kids and parents love these children’s interior accessories!

childrens-interior-accessories-ferm-living

I wanted to just share this post without saying much about our current situation. But then I remembered a little story from Friday.

The six of us at the airport, heading out of Scandinavia and into our new country. We are in a shop and about to pay, when the lady at the counter asked the kids ‘Are going home tonight?’
Silence.

Awkward moment. The lady looked at us and then I explained that this is a tricky question at this moment. And a reply would take a little while.
But it also summed up the current state of mind over here. In between places, in between good byes and hellos and in between all kind of feelings and emotions.

Once we are settled a little (our stuff is supposed to arrive today) I will try and write another article about this whole moving thing.

But for now, we are talking kids interiors. More precisely the new children’s collection from Ferm Living Kids. It is truly too adorable.

As always, Ferm Living Kids nails it when it comes to the perfect mix of kids friendly yet stylish, appealing to parents and somehow super cute but not kitsch. Scandinavian style with lots of charm and a timeless style.

The Sausage Dog Edit

 
Paul & Paula: The Sausage Dog Edit

Good Morning! A crazy week is upon us here… today is the last day in our apartment because tomorrow the moving company will ring the bell very early and start packing our belongings. After 5 years you just make a lot of memories…

And the Sausage Dog idea actually came, because Romy always tells me about dogs and she knows all the different types, races and breeds. And she loves Sausage Dogs…

So, one day I found this cool bedding and the throw and went looking for more, because surely there are more Sausage Dog enthusiasts?!

Enjoy the edit:

1. Very cool print. So simple!

2. Sparkling hair clips. Perfect as a stocking filler for a dog lover.

3. Bedding set from Donna Wilson. Not only for kids…

4. Cushion from oy oy. Woof!

5. Pull-Along Dog with mathematic operations. In blue or pink.

6. Large wooden pull-along dog. Love the ears…

7. Cats and dogs organic romper.

8. Cats and Dogs organic sweater.

9. Sausage dog throw. Again, not only for kids and probably a great gift for a person who loves dogs or has a sausage dog.

10. Skateboard hot dog. Love it, so funny!

11. Crochet sausage dog in various colours!

Amsterdam warehouse gone family home with lots of vintage treasures

Amsterdam warehouse gone family home with lots of vintage treasures
Oh, I just found this gem of a family place yesterday. Sitting right in the canals of our last destination, Amsterdam, so I had lots of memories coming back!

A former warehouse just off Prinsengracht, one of the main canals in Amsterdam’s city center, it is a four-storey red-brick building built in the early 1800s. A typical long stretched space (home owners used to pay taxes based on the width of their houses back in the 1600!) that was recently renovated by their passionate and current owners.

The children’s rooms are sitting under the steeply pitched eaves. And the parents created such a poetic universe for their little ones, it is just beautiful. In general, I just cannot stop looking at these pictures. So many little details, vintage finds and cool ideas. I love it!

In between the Vintage finds, there are also some bespoke pieces. Like the ceiling-height living room cabinet made by local Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek. It is composed of recycled cupboard doors and just so awesome!

“Sometimes designers forget about comfort, but it’s a home and it should feel like home.” Marloes Hoedeman, owner of this amazing place.

There is nothing more to add to this…

15 happy things for your October!

Paul & Paula 15 things for October
Oh hello! At the moment I am not so sure how I feel about Fridays. On the one hand, I am happy for the weekend to start. On the other hand, I feel like time is literally rushing through. Another week has gone by… waaaaahhh…

I cannot wait to slow down again and breathe. We do have a really great holiday coming up for the Winter break (Dec/Jan) and I just love the pre-excitement before going away. This time even more, because we all really need a break. To relax, to spend time together (slow and quality) and do not follow any wake-up calls, appointments, and other commitments.

How about you?

I do love autumn very much and this year we are lucky to see some sun shining through the pretty leaves as well. But I can also see that this is always a rather hard period for the children. Between the middle of August when they went to school and the very end of October – it is a long period of school weeks. On top the days are getting shorter, the mornings are dark and a little chilly. Everyone is tired. Do you feel the same?

Nevertheless, I have gathered quite a few cool finds as well as reads for you. I hope that you will enjoy them:

9 fruit inspired and special children’s rooms

Paul & Paula: 9 fruit inspired and special children's rooms
‘An apple a day…’ or ‘eat your rainbow’. We all know the importance of fruits and veggies in our regime and are busy to inspire our offspring to eat their important vitamins. But why not bringing the yummy and colourful fruits into our home in a different way too?

My latest crush is the the pear shaped storage basket you can find below and it inspired me to search a bit further and see how fruits can be incorporated into children’s rooms.

Let’s have a look:
