She was the sweet lady who so creatively illustrated the famous stories of the late Annie MG Schmidt, one of the Netherlands' most famous children book writers.

Sweet illustrations, by Laura Uy
January 19, 2016
Laura Uy is a Canadian illustrator with such a lovely, playful style. Her work mainly focusses on greeting cards and prints, which make great decor pieces for children's rooms. I love that bear in the photo above, so whimsical (the gold stars are hand-painted and make the print extra pretty). Laura's greeting cards have such sweet illustrations with the cutest puns. There are cards for ...

Petit Pehr: Storage baskets that make rooms look neat
September 11, 2015
With six people in a house, I am constantly tidying up. There's no end to it! Once I have one room in order, I turn around to see the next in a state of explosion. Totally normal of course, and just the way it should be -- imagine a house with little children living in it ...

Atissu: tissue boxes that you will not want to hide
September 4, 2015
I'm not ready for autumn just yet -- I would love to enjoy a few more warm weekends with picnics in the park and barely dressed children running around on their bare feet... And then, yes then (maybe) I'll agree to bring on the layers of cosy woollens, the hot chocolates in front of the fire place, the film nights with pizza ...

The sweetest nightlight from Tulipop
June 2, 2015
Ava needed a new lamp for her bedside table and when I saw the new product of Signy and Helga, the two beautiful fiends behind Icelandic brand Tulipop, I knew she would absolutely love it. How sweet is this Bubble lamp? It's just prefect for her, so soft and sweet. Very comforting for a little girl that just ...

Room decór & accessories from Little Cloud

The wall behind the girls' bed was feeling a bit bare, and I was trying to think of what to hang there when I discovered these sweet name wire signs from Little Cloud. I ordered one for each of the girls and I think they look so sweet hanging on that wall. (It also, conveniently, ...

Beautiful, retro-style doll prams from The Tipi
February 16, 2015
We're moving house this week (!!) and have spent the past month paring down our belongings and clearing out all of the stuff we've accumulated over the past four years. It's really kind of appalling how much stuff one family can collect into one house. And I thought we lived quite minimally. Ha! Anyway, we've ...

Nursery idea: rug on the wall

My friend Mo, who owns Pipsticks and whom I've written about before (here), is expecting a baby girl (her fourth baby!) any day now. I was over at her house last week and asked to see her baby's nursery... because honestly, isn't there something so magical and exciting about a newly prepared little space for a baby? ...

Pim's bed, and wonderful Jim Flora wallpaper
January 22, 2015
Last weekend, my husband and I did something new for both of us: we wallpapered a wall. We learned a lot about measuring, cutting, and patience, and got to deeply respect the skills of professional wallpaperers. But after hard labour I'm proud to present the results: the wall behind Pim's bed is covered in gorgeous blue wallpaper! Pim picked this ...

New in at Donna Wilson!

I'm not very adventurous with tableware -- I think it's my OCD qualities (!) that likes my kitchen cupboards to be filled with big stacks of matching plates, bowls, mugs, etc. My kids use the same tableware as we do (this range from Ikea!), that way we don't clutter up our cupboards with different stuff for ...

A sweet sheep alarm clock
October 28, 2014
This cute little sheep SAM is not only an alarm clock and a nightlight, it is also a very cute and clever sleep trainer. Apparently, young children don't have a sense of time like us adults -- for them, the day starts when they open their eyes in the morning, and it ends when they are put to bed. ...

An easy way to transform a room
August 12, 2014
We're back from France, and we found our house renovation next door in full swing. Once again, I'm thinking of tiles patterns, paint colours, concrete floors and curtains. I even wake up in the middle of the night, trying to solve the most unimportant little design questions imaginable. Crazy! (And annoying!) One of the things that came to mind in my nightly ...

Perludi furniture: a cot, junior bed & ottoman (all in one)
