I know, it’s been a quite some time since I’ve wrote the last post. It’s not only because of Summer season. I’ve been so busy preparing a new project which I’d like to share with all of you.
New name, new partner (Decopeques), new blogging platform … but same attitude and style!
Come and join us for this new adventure!

Muku is about balance between form and function with each product being designed with your child in mind.
Cosy muted tones with accents of colour, freedom of motion, carefully selected natural fabrics. SS14 collection of Lithuanian duo Muku keeps the line of clear, fresh design.
This time simplicity and beauty go hand and hand.
Summer vacation is here and kids will have plenty of time to run, play and investigate their outdoor. But also there will be quiet times, perfect to develop a craft project.
Children are more likely to get involved in projects when there are fun, challenging, and fascinating play materials available.
Here are some ideas. Hope you enjoy with them!

Magharibi (At sunset) is a project about the art of looking.
It’s a book without words illustrated by Guridi. A publication with a poignant beauty that will compel you to invent stories.
These are some images of the preview of the book. A real treat for the eyes and senses.
The editorial Porkepik has launched a Verkami campaign to finance the production of this book. Let us make it possible!
Do you remember El nan casteller? It’s a really nice wooden toy based on the Catalan tradition of Castells (human towers). Now Apanona (Laia Arriols), Marc Sardà and El Nan Casteller have joined forces on a new project for the youngest: the Nanpuzzle. And I’m crazy about it!
Nanpuzzle is a giant puzzle ahead and a colorable behind. Apanona has drawn a pretty scene with Barcelona skyline and some Castellers playing (with Nan XL) and taking selfies.
Turn the puzzle over, colour it and learn how to dress Castellers in English.
And also have fun with a real Nan (included in the box).
Nanpuzzle is consisting of 24 reversible jumbo pieces and is recommended for ages 3 and above. The large pieces are easy to handle for children.
Tradition and modernity, innovation and responsible production can go hand in hand. Well done!

Today I want to show you Aloïs and Vaim’s room. Her mother, Aude, is the blogger behind Toupie et ses haricots magiques and a lover of the vintage.
The kids room combines contemporary elements with others found in flea markets, such as the child desk, the highchair or the great collection of Fisher Priece figures.
Some animal masks from Chocolate show, a doll from Le train fantôme or a Superhero mirror from April Eleven bring a fun twist to this shared room.
If you want to know more details about this room, check out Babayaga magazine.

Ken Heyman recently discovered a nearly forgotten treasure in storage – a box labeled “Mothers” that had a really beautiful series of images that he shot of mothers around the world nearly 50 years ago.
He taken the pictures as part of a book called Family that he co-wrote with anthropologist Margaret Mead back in 1965.
Here some of them. Enjoy!
I’ve seen the first photos of Bobo Choses AW14/15 collection via Zirimola eco shop blog!
The collection is called A Day in L.A. and you’ll find references to Venice Beach, Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood or Echo Park lake in form of stars, peanuts, birds or swans… and a lot of cool clothes!
A great collection inspired by Los Angeles city and the imaginary of the 50’s. With Bobo’s characteristic prints playing the starring role, the collection represents the magic, the boldness and the fun of spending a day in L.A.
Colour, creativity and fun garments. Bobo Choses in its purest state!

A few time ago, I introduced you TORONTO, a modular and adjustable stool designed specially for kids. I’m very pleased that this innovative and cool children’s stool has been selected by DELTA AWARDS 2014, 37th International edition of the best product design, FADexpo.
TORONTO is a piece of furniture and a toy at the same time, made of cork and foam, both 100% recyclable. With the ability to customize the stackable discs to meet their height, children can strengthen fundamental skills such as movement, coordination and manipulation.
TORONTO is suitable for indoor playground spaces such as libraries, kindergartens, etc. and also for domestic play areas.
TORONTO stool is the brainchild of In-Tenta and Daniela Seminara, and it’s produced by MADE DESIGN.

When Julias Vita Drömmar and her husband bought a little farm it was in a bad condition, but they have completely renovated it.
On the farm they have a root cellar dating from the 1600s that they have reconverted into a beautiful playhouse - summer house for their children.
A good coat of white paint (and light green for some pieces), a few trips to antique markets and some elements of IKEA have completely changed the look of the room.
There are so many details I love! The vintage prints, the doll crib, the textile teapot, the ancient mirror… It’s simply perfection.
If you like this style of decoration, you’ll absolutely love Julias’ shop. Check it out!
Minimal silhouettes, subtle volumes.
Soft colours combined with grey, black and white.
Love these casual, cool looks designed by Charlotte Eskildsen. Little Remix makes clothes for girls from ages 4 to 16, but I’d wear many of pieces of its new collection.
