RAM’N – respecting creativity

Ram'n

Today is a day where I can hardly wait to publish my post. To show you something really fabulous.

Marie-Louise and her husband Thomas are RAM’N. An innovative frame that lets you hang your kids’ art in just 2 seconds and can keep up to 50 drawings! Yes… I know… this is THE solution to all the ‘what to do with all the paintings’ questions.

Let me share the story about RAM’N, it is one of those that remind me why I started this blog and why I love this industry. The small, independent designers, brands… the ones that put so much love and passion in their work:

Toi Art Gallery

Toi Art Gallery

I like art. I like good prints. I would love to fall in love with a real big {probably expensive} painting. Oil maybe. Something I can imagine to love forever.

So far I have not found that painting but make myself happy with affordable prints. A home without art is like a home without plants and books. Impossible.

And when Karina & Viviana introduced me to their world called Toi Art Gallery I was in love straight away. A paradise with carefully selected artists. A paradise so nicely different to what you see everywhere. If I could, I would hang it all!

The two girls, originally from Argentina but based in California, wanted to focus on South American artists initially but expanded ‘world wide’. Great art needs to have its place!

Josephine’s first birthday

Josephine's First Birthday
Last week was Joséphine’s BIG day. She turned O N E. Yes…. one year ago we became a family of six.

The little extra wonder that entered the world. The sunshine that makes everyone smile. The little girl that we all love!

Was celebrated!

For parties I always love to check out Little Lulubel – Natalie has the best kits, inspiration and lots of little extras like party bags and dressing up stuff.

I wanted something a little soft and girly – the Belle and Boo kit is perfect, we just added a tassel garland {that truly makes such a great difference to the set up} and some cupcake liners.

We baked some very simple vanilla cupcakes – or better Romy did – something easy to eat and hold for the birthday girl.

See the happy birthday girl. This is her. Always happy, always smiling – pure joy, bliss and happiness. Amazing!

And that cute little pointy hat… believe it or not… she was wearing for every meal the two next days… love her to bits!

Beija Flor

Beija Flor

Our kitchen has this beautiful wooden floor. And our kitchen is home to a little lady who only enjoys food she can eat all by herself…

Which means we cover the floor to keep things a little in check. And have a look, there is an alternative to the boring see through plastic thingies. There is Beija Flor!
High quality vinyl mats that re-introduce the beauty of ancient tiles. The patterns are based on authentic tiles rediscovered from the past, each of them very eye-catching and also very modern in their own way. Created in their design studio, each mat is built to last from extra durable and strong PVC resulting in easy maintenance.

They truly have the best vinyl mats. The best. It is so hard to choose just one believe me…

Road trip part eight – Santa Cruz

santa cruz

This is the first post from home and the last one about the trip. Kinda. This is the last part. In my head I plan to write a little ’round up’ – like a top ten list and things that stood out A LOT and so on…. working on it. But the reality is: We are back. It is 5 am here in Sweden, the jet lag is playing with me, I am sitting in my own kitchen and it makes me happy to see the pictures. It makes me happy that we did this amazing trip. I actually already ordered a few prints from my Instagram pictures so we can have them up in the house and look at them…
