One fabulous architect designed nursery

When you have the resources to hire a fabulous design studio to work on your child’s nursery. Well, lovely interiors like the one I am sharing today are the result.

This amazing rope canopy (or how would you call it?) is definitely the eye catcher and I am guessing that it can be changed from time to time. Different colours, shapes, and materials. I have never seen anything like it before and love the colourways they used.

Did you notice how the wall reflects the colours as well? Very subtle and sweet.

Those built-in shelves are fantastic as well!

And lots of natural light with beautiful greenery.

And there are more beds for children… make sure to keep looking up and not get stuck with another cool wall of shelves. There is kind of ‘rope hole’ for some fun as well as light coming through. Very clever and I am sure the kids love it too…

Plus the slide. Of course there is a slide!

And of course a very cute bathroom…

I would be very curious to see the rest of the house as well. And I am sure you too.

Would you like to see more architect designed places? One of my favourites is definitely this family apartment in Paris.

Delightful heirloom hand embroidered decorative dolls

How was your weekend? Are you ready to see something so adorable it will mesmerize you? When I first stumbled upon these woodland dolls during a quick stroll at Anthropologie it was love at first sight.

And of course I bookmarked them immediately and I am so excited to share them with you today. Rose started making her decorative woodland dolls after her sweet girl Alba was born. Inspired by memories of her grandmother, the creativity she had passed down, Rose borrowed a sewing machine and started to sew.

Today, Thicket & Thimble consists of a small team of makers, lovingly creating each doll entirely by hand. Using very noble and hand-dyed fibres. Each doll features Irish linen and hand-stitched wool-felt applique and all designs arrive with a numbered tag and a glitter cotton dust bag:

‘Crafting my endearing little characters has been a hugely fulfilling creative process – new ideas are forming in my mind constantly and it’s a joy bringing them to life and a dream come true knowing they bring happiness to others.’

You can clearly see how much passion and craftsmanship goes into each doll. Every doll is a piece of heart, and something the dolly mum or dad will keep forever.

And you can find two distinct collections: Heirloom; the signature, hand embroidered decorative dolls, each one numbered. And Keepsake; a collection of water colour linen print designs for play.

Home accessories with a bit of humor!

Calhoun & Co.
Happy New Year! Bonne Annee! Frohes Neues Jahr!

Yay, 2020 is here. And my break is coming to an end today. Happy to be back even so the task of finding the right topic for the very first article of a decade is a little daunting.

Therefore I decided to go with home accessories* that come with a bit of humor and cosy vibes. A so called no brainer and something we all enjoy. At any time of year! And when you live in the UK or somewhere in Northern Europe you will always enjoy a great blanket…

Especially when they are this cool:

Brilliant right?

Kerry designs home accessories with a bit of humor for cosy weekend vibes. And the intention of spreading a little more kindness in the world. And she says: “We’re inspired by community, friendly faces, interesting places, and spending Saturday mornings slow and with a cup of coffee. Your home is the space you spend time with those nearest & dearest to you. And we believe that space should reflect you and have the personality you want it to have.”

Kerry and her cool business are based in Brooklyn, New York, and the collection is a mix of small batch (or one of a kind!) handmade items and designs produced right in the U.S.A.

And those blankets* are just so good. Do you have a favourite? It is so difficult and I am hesitating between ‘Good At Naps*’ and those lovely flamingos*.

 

Calhoun & Co. baby blanket
And this jungle inspired kid sized blanket* is just so adorable as well.

 

Calhoun & Co. tea towel
Also, can you say no to a great tea towel? This “Be A Friendly Face*” pattern was designed with the people of New York City in mind. A city that is made up from so many different kinds of people, and that is a beautiful thing.

By the way, the designs are all based on illustrations and painting by founder Kerry. Love!

I hope these blankets put a smile on your face and if you are looking for more home accessories inspiration, how about these natural home decor ideas?

Poetic hand made dolls to play, dream, and imagine!

Poetic hand made dolls

When looking at these adorable dolls, full of details and love, I imagine how satisfying it must be to make them. To creat etheir outfits, stitch every little detail, and adding final touches to make each of them perfect. And then you send them out in the big wide world where they will be loved and cherished.

I know, a very romantic view. But why not…

Look at them, one must fall in love!

And every doll from Cerise is handmade with natural and noble textiles like silk, linen, cotton, wool … and with a lot of care. After all,  in Sarah’s world, the woman behind these magic creatures, there is a lot of space for play, dream, imagination, and a desire to create with poetry in mind.

 

Poetic hand made dolls
Every creation has it’s own soul, character and is truly unique. I think that they are the most stylish rabbits and dolls I have ever seen…

Look at these gorgeous outfits!

Further, I am very intrigued by the “Dollhouse” box (last image as example) which includes everything one needs to make a comfy nest for their doll: a linen mattress, cotton cushions, as well as a round decorative cushion in velvet quilted by hand. Plus a linen blanket with metallic embroidery, a pouf, one crocheted cotton basket, and a leaf linen carpet. Also note the hand-painted floral notebook and the cutest cotton pennant garland. All packed in a lovely wooden box. What a great gift for a little dolls mama or papa.
