Creating space for play in apartment living

But living in this beautiful city of Paris is amazing: we walk everywhere, the city is full of life and stimulation, we live in a vibrant neighbourhood and the mix of different people from different walks of life is incredible. My kids ...

Emily Hogarth's beautiful papercuts
I have followed Emily Hogarth and her adorable family on Instagram for the past couple years and have always loved the snippets I've seen of her beautiful papercut creations in her feed.  So I was so excited when she got in touch last year and offered to create a custom papercut piece for us based on our travels. ...

Whimsical felted fairies from Dorimu
Živa and Saša from Dorimu are a sweet couple from Austria who together create the most whimsical little works of art -- tiny (tiny!) little needle-felted fairies. Made from wire, thread and wool and with details made of pearls, the little fairies are so stunningly beautiful. They sit on little pieces of driftwood, and have a clever ...

Tree mural
A while ago I got the idea of painting a tree on a blank wall in Ivy's room. I was sort of inspired by this image I saw on Pinterest -- at first I was just going to put up a painted cardboard tree (to make it less permanent) but then I figured we would ...

My Little Home
I have recently done a little bit of work on our flat and it's amazing what a lick of paint and a few new accessories can do! It sometimes feels like I have moved into a new apartment! It is equally amazing how long it takes for even the smallest renovation to finish. Though the decorators ...

Famille Summerbelle Wallpaper
I have been a bit interior-decor obsessed lately, as I have been redoing my flat. We have been living in a building site with dust everywhere! Coco managed to lean against a freshly painted white wall: the result was a white line all down her back from her hair to her jeans, just like a ...

Black for a Kid's Room
Here are some pictures of the first room we have decorated in our new house.  Of course it was the kid's bedroom! Since I was a little girl I have wanted to have my own home to decorate and since we started dreaming of owning this house (nearly 3 years ago -- it's a long ...

Water-resistant garlands from Hip Hooray
I recently discovered these nifty reusable SmartGarlands from Hip Hooray. What makes them so brilliant is that they look like the beautiful tissue paper garlands I love so much... yet they're made of a water-resistant, high density polyethylene material which makes them super durable and totally reusable.  I can't tell you how many garlands I've ...

Moveables -- stickers that don't lose their stick

Stylish boys' rooms
I’m like hawk-eye now when it comes to boys’ rooms. Since I had a little boy, I’m always on the lookout for spaces that are sophisticated but with a masculine edge – and yet still playful. Perhaps it’s a big ask, but I’m slowly getting a good clippings file. While this room, showcasing a new ...

Coloring Without Borders is incredible! From the sadness of the crisis at the US border earlier this year, where hundreds of families were separated, a beautiful project with a wonderful mission hatched : to help end family separation and to reunite all families who remain torn apart. The concept grew and grew with more than 80 talented artists creating sketches and illustrations from around the world. More than just a simple coloring-in book, this encourages children — both Spanish and English speaking– to colour and use the space that the artists have created but also to create something more beautiful, to express themselves with their imagination. And even to color over the lines... without borders! Hundreds of copies of the book have been sent to children who have been separated from their families, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the book goes to Families Belong Together. We love everything about this idea! ️ What a perfect gift for every child you know. Read more, tap on the link. @coloringwithoutborders @fams2gether #familiesbelongtogether
