Pim's bed, and wonderful Jim Flora wallpaper
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 ...

Little Auggie pajamas
I have always loved the baby and children's bedding at Little Auggie. The prints are so sweet, the colours so fresh, and I love the way they mix and match patterns and textiles to create the most gorgeously styled little beds. Little Auggie have recently launched a line of children's sleepwear to compliment their bedding collection, ...

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
This cute little sheep SAM is not only an alarm clock and a nightlight, it is also a very cute and clever sleep trainer.

An easy way to transform a room
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)
We were given a hand-me-down cot from friends when our first baby was born and it's the cot we still use for Marlow. I think it must be at least 15 years old now, and it's one of those cots that is ONLY a cot, and nothing else.  If I were to buy a cot ...
