We spend such a lovely afternoon at our friends' place yesterday. Treated well with great talk and delicious food. We just couldn't resist to make a few pictures in their son's freshly painted room with our Rafa-kids F bunk bed. You have to believe us, we didn't advise the color!!! Their 7 years old boy loves yellow and he would like to have mainly this color. I really like the gray with it and a bit of dark blue. Looks so fresh and modern. There will be also a desk and more boys' stuf soon…. but the place under bunk bed is well used already! We are more than happy to see our design in such a beautiful house and space.

Do you know " Make your own banner" ?It's a set of 127 letters from which you can make any kind of sentence and hang them at home. I like letters a lot and use them as a decorative element sound like a great idea to me. The black letters are for more graphic touch but there is colorful set too. They are available in Holland at eennieuwavontuur. Beautiful shop Mokkasin have them too. The banner is coming from Omm Design.
I wish you a great week -end.

If you are looking for something very different and unique for your child, then you must step from time to time by kickcanandconkers. You will always find something fresh and new , like I dissevered this beautiful Zenzi-design. Behing this small brand is standing an illustrator and graphic designer from Cologne.
" In my cozy studio, I look out the window and think things out of me. Crazy stuff, practical stuff, pretty things, big and small things for you! I am glad if you like something."
Yes, I do!

I have to be honest and say there is not many children orientated e-magazines that I like. Most of them focus on fashion and are not much interested to present some modern ideas to decorate children's room.
The scandinavian Lille Nord magazine is a big exception. It is very inspiring, full with great DIY projects and interesting children's rooms. The bold and minimalist Danish style is so present and speaks to me. I really like the DIY paper masks - you can see all the tutorial inside the magazine here : Lille Nord.
Chloés room is so cosy but with minimalist scandinavian touch ( hay boxes, bobochoses rug on the wall, Japanese balloons) . The credits for this room goes to mimiscircus , so I guess its a room of the daughter of the owner of this very nice children shop. Pity there is no single word about it! I'm a fan of the beautiful we do wood desk, finding its place in the room. Please have a look at all magazine : Lille Nord

It was so quiet here in the last days. You can see where I was ( partly, because my older son was also having school holiday) ….We finally menage to clean the studio! The first picture is so symbolic for me : the door to our new Rafa-kids challenge and a ladder to bring us to some other level of our work.
A lot of things will happen very soon....

Vitra made this new design in collaboration with Jongeriuslab. Hella Jongerius is one of my favorite Dutch designer. Mochi is showing clear her signature : impressive color combination and unique details.
"… Mochi is initially a special japanese rice paste, used to prepare a traditional cake of the same name. It is their round, colorful and playful appearance, as well as their characteristic softness that inspired the name of the new pouf…"

Hello May! Hello week - end!
What about a bit of beautiful blue color this Spring?
This photo session was made for Japanese Milk , by Hirofumi Sato. I really like all this modern chairs for children styled in different blue tones and textures. I see only girls too! ;-) What a funny lamp made out of a hat and lamp in the bottle! The mix of modern furniture is so great, don't you think?

Never ending problem, where to put all the toys in children's room?
What do you think about all these metal baskets and cabinet? I really like them and definitely not only for boys! They will look great with soft pastel colors in girl's room. The table with big drawers! So practical, children can take the toys and play and then just hide them! (I would give it a bit more modern twist ;-) but the idea its great. The big metal cabinet, is also very nice + the big puff ( I got crash on them already for some time! )

I really like this loft bunk bed ! Very industrial of course, made from steel connectors.
Whole atmosphere of this room is so great, look at the amazing old chair standing next to the table, the colors of the bedding are also so nice, lamps, and even the wall ! Restoration Gardware Baby&Child are very professional and take care of every detail in their interiors. I would definitely take this table on wheels to put in our studio ;-)

Restoration Gardware is an exclusive and classic interior&furniture brand from America.
You might be a bit surprise to see it on my modern blog! ;-) but please don't! I just love some of the ideas for children's rooms and would like to share it with you. The theme in children's rooms : maps - travel - nature is so beautiful. I'm totally into the big poufs with different patterns and textures. Especially the ones on the first photo. I would love to have puffs in Rafa-kids collection. The metal baskets hanging on the wall are such a clever idea. If you have nice bedding and pillows why to hide them in the wardrobe? I never liked the animal's heads hanging on the wall , but this ones are a small exception. You can have a look at all catalog of Restoration Gardware Baby&Child , there are many interesting details to discover….
great storage idea
love the puffs and lamps !!!
