Mundo-melocoton - colorful bedding for kids

You have to believe me - it is so difficult to find such a modern looking and photograph children bedding!
 I was so surprise to discover this Belgian  mundo-melocoton brand for kids. 
Soft textile together with a strong and intensive colors - that's a great combination don't you think ?

Black & white children rooms

accessories : 1 -  2 -  3 - 4 - 5 - 6

Have I told you already that I'm a guest blogger at ladnebebe website?
I run a column over classic design for kids, and write about trends too. 
I was showing work of Enzo MArii, Alvar Alto and Kaj Bojsen

Today I'm showing you the black&white theme in children room decoration, which I also selected for ladnebebe.  This trend is coming from Scandinavia, especially from Norway. The warmth you can see in the love of texture and beautiful accessories with strong patterns. Like Fine Little Day design : the black tree pattern on the wall papers and pillows, which is very popular this winter. Personally I would find difficult to adopt to only black & white room, but I like the clean and peacefull character of it.

Letter poster

I have a weakness for typography since art school time. I had a fantastic teacher showing us with big passion the beauty of letters. The challenges were to make our own alphabet or draw letters with wooden stick and ink! When I discovered play type store, It was love from the first sight. I think I could work there ;-) The website is a typographer heaven and the posters are so fantastic…only the shipping price is not so nice ;-/ I wish to have the big letter poster for our Rafa-kids new studio. They display window is looking fantastic too. 

"…Playtype a foundry and online font shop was created by brand&design agency e-Types, as a showcase of more than 20 years of type design - from commissioned works to font created out of passion… " 

Here you can read more about Jonas Hecksher, Jens Kajus and Henrik Kubel all the Font Designers

wooden lamp by llot llov

Today more inspiration from M&O fair:  Wooden lamp EARL from llot llov and a stand of enostudio. The lamp EARL is made from twenty wooden pearls and you can in a easy way change the height and orientation of light. Hand made out of beautiful wood. I like the Enstudio design for the simple and funny look of the products. 
I'm very busy out here and miss a lot blogging ....

Paris and Maison&Objet 2013

It was a bit quiet here last days. I went for 2 days to Paris to see the Maison&Objet fair and also to enjoy a bit this beautiful city. The fair is HUGE! it's impossible for me to show you what I saw ;-) 

 I'm overloaded with images. Today just a small colorful selection in the KIDS department
I was especially interested in textile and furniture . A lot of colors and texture in accessories, yellow and pink are still very hot. I didn't expect we go with it another year ;-) Pastel tones also doing very well.  I was lucky to meet luckyboysunday and have a small chat with the girls - otherwise I was just running around . I liked the stand of Oeuf. I think they are doing great development and keeping constant style. New discovery is for me the moustache with this great black & white rug and muskhane with energetic felt colors and much more….

Texture collages and posters

I notice this geometric collages in 3 different places last week. I put them in one composition for you. Maybe it is some trend in the graphic world ( ? ) or I just really like it and see it  ;-) This graphic you can see at new catalog of Danish brand FermLivingRum magazine - which I got last week from a Danish friend  ( fantastic !) is also using it and last posters are from Kristina Krogh , founded at Ellensalbum blog. 
I feel like cutting paper with different textures and do something nice…. ;-)

Rafa-kids future studio and showroom.

This year will be very special for Rafa-kids, because we will open our own STUDIO and SHOWROOM
We grabbed a chance to rent a spot in Hofbogen. This old structure is "the longest building in Holland" giving home to many creative people. It has this great industrial atmosphere with big windows and concrete floor. We got the keys in December but we are just starting the rebuilding and preparation to open the doors in Spring. That's why there is a ladder in this post ;-) I will pain a lot the coming weeks and clean, after the boys will finish to demolish the walls…. I just can't stop looking for the inspiration of studios/show rooms, mostly very simple  - all the pictures are from my pinterest page.  1/ 2/  3

House of…Lucky Boy Sunday

The Danish brand Lucky boy Sunday is still one of my favorite children brands / one of my first posts on this blog was about them / They create knitted home interior goodies, beautiful pillows, creatures and plaids. The photo sessions are always unique and the colors are so special.  I was happy to see the house of one of the owners at designsponge. Camilla Ebdrup, and her husband, photographer Andreas Stenmann, live close by Copenhagen with their four-year-old son, Sigurd. I really like the  mix of modern and vintage , and the relax and inviting atmosphere of their house. Its always so great to get a small sneak view how the designer of good brand live in the every day routine.  I hope you like it.
