22 fun things for a sunny March!

22 fun things for a sunny March!
Yes, Yes! Today is the 1st of March. Already! I really hope that you are located somewhere where you could enjoy some Spring-like days already as well. Here in London it was amazing and our batteries got such a good recharge.

We put our little garden together and even had lunch outside on some days. It is crazy right?

But I also kept track on everything that caught my eye over the last weeks and voila, a new Friday list is born. 22 things I have. Lots of interior (mainly from researches for my Interior Tuesday articles), some Etsy finds and, of course, a few things for mums too.

Enjoy:

wild honey apparel
Wild Honey Apparel. la la la love these T-shirts.

 

I get that we’re in a time where minimal-style kids clothing is having a real moment. You know the type I’m talking about – linen, rompers, muted colours, beige (So. Much. Beige!), kind of Amish – but I feel really conflicted about the whole thing. On the one hand, the colours and styles are undoubtedly gorgeous, but on the other hand, these colours and styles don’t do much to entice little people to get dressed and have fun. I strongly believe happy clothes – colour, easy-wear-silhouettes and unrestricted shapes – are better for children both mentally and physically.

Refreshing talk about kids clothes!

Happy weekend friends and see you back here on Monday! xoxo

Must-have accessories for a natural kids room!

Accessories for a natural kids room!

One of your favourite kids rooms here on Paul & Paula is the fantastic universe of Sonny Lou. It is a natural children’s room that is full of inspiration and things to take away.

Some DIY ideas, colour combinations that work for both boys and girls as well as cute products.

Therefore I thought I would put together a little mix of some really nice accessories for a natural kids room.

I hope you like these ideas:

1. Beautiful organic cotton swan cushion.

2. Rainbow mobile from Liewood. With pompoms and earthy colours.

3. Very cool boho shelf for a very reasonable price. Such an eye-catcher and so timeless.

4. Rainbow velvet pouf to play, relax and having fun.

5. Organic blanket from Bobo Choses. With a quirky touch. Love it!

 

6. Loving this raffia basket with its turqoise dots. Because every natural room needs a dose of colour. This is just the right one!

7. Fan garland. Here in natural but available in many colours. Probably one of my favourite accessories – these are so elegant, come in the best colours and just add a touch of whimsy to any room.

8. Such a pretty lamp. (other colours available too) Not just for the kids room. Makes for beautiful light and ceilings!

9. This hanging cradle is the bomb. If you are about to put a nursery, you need to have this. A dream.

10. Safari bedding in junior as well as one person bed sizes.

 

11. Little knitted fawn. To cuddle.

12. Machine washable cushion.

13. Quilted bed throw or blanket. Here in mustard but available in other divine colours as well.

14. Can you ever have enough storage baskets? Especially when they are this cute?

15. Fun print from the Mado X Soft Gallery collab.

 

See you tomorrow for a new Friday List!

Vintage family haven in Stockholm

Vintage family haven in Stockholm

Do you know where Aspudden is? You will after this post! And you will love it, because this vintage family haven is the bomb.

Aspudden is a district of Söderort, a southern suburb of Stockholm. And home to this amazing family place that has a vintage find to be discovered in every corner. And the apartment is bright, airy and I love the wooden floors.

The area has this cosy little town feel. Nice little shops and restaurants and under 15 min to get into the city by metro. And there is Vinterviken just around the corner. A bay in the Mälaren lake where you go for walks and also find garden cafes. A very green area!

But, let’s have a look at the apartment, the vintage haven:

And? Are you already planning a trip to your local flea market this week end? I can’t blame you!

 

Love vintage – have a look at this boho vintage kids room. Love Stockholm – you will enjoy this family place right in the center of the city.

The most incredible birth photos ever!

Image: Artist by Heart Photography

Today I want to start the week with these powerful images. Images that will touch every heart, soul and probably will bring all your memories of childbirth back.

There is this incredible image contest happening, hosted by Birth Becomes Her. Images from all over the world that inspire and empower the act of giving birth. Emotions, tears, joy and the beginning of a new life.

I would call it ‘raw birth photography’.

Birth Becomes Her was created in 2014 by birth photographers, Monet Nicole and Jennifer Mason. An international community of birth photographers that work together to help the industry grow.

For the 2018 contest they received over 1200 images from birth photographers around the world. And there are five categories for photographers to submit to:
Hospital, out-of-hospital, colour, black and white, and postpartum.

Here is a selection:

Please have a look over on their website for all entries, winners etc…

Have a nice week!
