Coming kids is one of the leading companies which produces children furniture in The Netherlands. 
So what is the standard children's furniture looking out here? I will say sturdy and robust. In Dutch language it will be more " landelijk" , which I can simply translate : rustic - plattelands. Not really the minimal and elegant style,  I like the most. The checks pattern in textile in children's deco, is also something very " Dutch" . 

My favorite piece of furniture, from Coming kids collection is  "growing with child" changing room, which you can transform into desk or wardrobe. Very smart system and actually I haven't seen anything like that before. Great idea!

OH LA LA

Le Cerise sue Gateau + Laurette butterfly chair
Le Cerise sue Gateau

Today we are mixing big neon dots with stripes 
 just because according to Anne Hubert normal is boring!

Quirky, funny and full of energy is the world of French brand La Cerise sur le Gateau. I had the chance to see the new Spring/Summer 2014 collection, called Oh LA LA at the SHOWUP Amsterdam, beginning of February. It was difficult to miss this colorful stand with so many pillows, bedding and storage boxes. Together with Laurette ( other French company having children's furniture)  they introduced into their collection butterfly chair's in different patterns. Classic shape with a funny and playful textile, which I think can be a great addition of color in a child's room.

stella for spring

I hope sun shines where you are. That's what we all need after so many gray and rainy days.  I can't wait to put back all the winter clothes into the closet, radically clean our house and just be ready for Spring to come. The Stella Mccartney Spring/Summer 2014 kids collection gives me such a positive vibe. I like so much in her collection, the possibility to mix some of boys and girls garments. The energetic & neon shoes are so great too!

stripes


Do you like stripes?
 I think this timeless pattern can go so well each season and not only for clothes. 
Since I'm not a pastel person, and I can't stand pastel rooms, ( which I see at the moment a lot ! )  I think it would be great to mix the black&white stripes patterns with some energetic colors. What about yellow and peach ?  I really like the new spring collection of Macarons. They just use stripes together with sweet pastel and mustard colors, which looks beautiful!  I wish we could use more stripes in the interiors for kids. They are so playful.  I made this mood board with interior products for a modern girl's room to give you some ideas. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Today we are going to visit cute room in Sweden - welcome into the World of Antoine & Leonor.

 I think you can feel and see that each of the elements was selected and put into this room with so much care and love. The creative mom behind this beautiful room  is Peggy who runs inspiring blog Paul&Paula. I'm so happy that she chose Rafa-kids toddler bed for her little boy Antoine. Later it will probably also be a sleeping place for her little girl  Leonor. What not to like about this room?  The wall display looks wonderful and is definitely my favorite element in this room and the tipi! yes, so many dreamy elements which I'm sure make the kids play around and enjoy their magic space.

Japanese bunk bed

Japanese bunk bed E-KO

Do you know that many Japanese bunk beds systems are build from single bed which are stuck one on another? I found this a fantastic idea! How it looks, that's another story, but at least I find the concept very interesting . I saw many different simple Japanese beds, but this one was one of my favorite. It is a E-ko bed system which is very practical but also has such a nice friendly look. So we have a single toddler bed, and then we have an option to make a loft bed out of it, and use the space under it for an desk, or put another bed for a siblings. The E-ko furniture system has a whitewash finish and the orange ladder ( which we can add in both side of the bed- smart!) give the furniture a nice twist and a very children friendly character.

cardboard furniture for kids

Recycled cardboard chair for kids

Recycled cardboard storage boxes for kids

We know that kids grow so fast, 
so maybe a small KENNO cardboard chair is a nice option for our toddler if we do not want to invest a lot in small size furniture . When a child outgrows it, you can just discard it. The sturdy yet lightweight material can be re-cycled as paper and water-based adhesives are used to create its sandwich construction.  

All shown furniture are coming from J√§rvi & Ruoho Helsinki based design office founded in 2003. 
They working on broad field of design, furniture, interior and concept design , 
you can find more at  jarvi-ruoho website.

Last week I received the very first issue of LILLENORD, a brand new and beautiful magazine representing urban nordic family lifestyle. 
Since I am always on look out for kids' interiors, I was happy to see something different than black&white Scandinavian style! The first print issue is full of inspiring Kids' fashion, Home decoration, DIY, recipes and lots more. 
The "Room Service" editorial pages, photographed by Monica Bach are my favorite, with a minimal touch and products from Lucky Boy Sunday and Ferm Living. Two scandinavian brands Lille Nord love and support, the other on their list are:  Hay, Normann Copenhagen, We Do Wood, Marimekko, Fine Little Day, Polkka Jam, Flexa, Garbo&Friends. In this issue I stopped by interesting interview with Lisa Stroander, Johanna Magoria, which are pinpointed by Lille Nord as the future of Scandinavian design. 

Thank you Lillenord for the press materials and such a inspiring magazine!
