Spring is here! Say it with pillows.
March 21, 2014

I used mixed techniques to put words on them -- embroidery, appliqué, and painting with textile paint. I especially enjoyed the embroidery work -- it's been a long time since I did embroidery, and ...

Harriet Hare bed linen & accessories
March 20, 2014
Harriet Hare is a new collection of beautiful bed linens and coordinating accessories. On first glance, it looks to be quite traditional with its pale blues and pinks, but I think it's the details of this brand that really make it stand out. Like how incredibly silky soft the bed linens are! The fabrics are ...

Adorable Penguins at Esthex
March 10, 2014
I love the new penguin range at Esthex. How cute are Ned (who plays music!) and his little brother Georges? And that little Ned backpack is just adorable. They have so much character!

Organic cotton knitwear from Miou Kids
March 5, 2014
So often these days, as you look around at children's brands, you see so many things that look alike. One trend inspires the other, people naturally draw inspiration from the same things... and you end up with lots of clothes that look the same. Which is why it's so fun to see brands doing their ...

Fabelab origami blanket
January 24, 2014
Maybe it's the architect in me, but I LOVE these Fabelab play-fold-birds, the idea of Copenhagen based architect (and mother of two), Michaela Weisskirchner-Barfod. Unfolded, you have a beautiful and softly padded play mat or blanket, perfectly detailed with gorgeous geometrical patchwork patterns in wonderful colour combinations. But then, thanks to an ingenious, origami style ...

Tips for decorating your child's space
November 15, 2013
Children are so playful and fun and it has been very rewarding for to me to represent a child's personality through their space.  A child's space doesn't have to follow all the rules that adult spaces follow and can be more whimsical and creative. I thought it might be fun and hopefully helpful to share ...
