Our kitchen: design details, paint colours and renovation info
After sharing the renovation details of our bathroom, many of you asked for the same information for our kitchen, so I thought I'd dedicate a post to our kitchen renovation and the design decisions we made. Designing our kitchen was one of my favourite parts about our renovation. Because we've designed a kitchen before -- ...

Creative Family Home
Ashlyn Gibson, founder of the super duper charming London children's boutique, Olive Loves Alfie, has recently come out with a new home interiors book, and just the idea of it had me excited. I love Ashlyn's style, and have previously drooled over images of her own home... so it is perfectly fitting that she dishes ...

Lalé
At Playtime, Courtney, Esther and I were very excited to meet the lady behind Lalé, one of our favourite French brands. The fabric designs are fantastic; they are bright and sunny without being too dominant so they appeal to parents and children alike. I actually think all three of us have Lalé items throughout our ...

CELEBRATIONS
I love you more than...
We don't have a Valentines Day tradition here in the Netherlands, and part of the idea I think is majorly over-commercialised, but the main thought -- expressing and celebrating our love for our best friends and family -- I think is important to emphasise. On Valentines day; every day! These prints by This Many Design ...

Nina's House
I'm so impressed by the design of this little house. How clever it is: crib, playpen, storage cabinet and changing table all in one! Such fun, so super innovative and beautiful!! The Dutch designer, Dave Keune,  thought about all the little details: the entire roof can be opened with bright yellow ropes. The base can ...

A Balloon for a Blunderbuss
I really enjoy writing for Babyccino Kids.  My favourite bit is reading the comments people leave on my posts -- it is so great to have a dialogue with like-minded mums and dads.  Back in February I wrote about a great book I'd found, Sparkle & Spin. Tina left a comment and it was clear ...

Sparkle and Spin
As Courtney mentioned I'm a bit of a nut when it comes to children's books, and Sparkle and Spin is my latest aquistition.  The book is about words and is SO SO SO beautifully illustrated.  I really love it. Without even knowing it, it appears I have stumbled upon a pretty powerful author/illustrator team with ...

Tess, a tasteful stool
Like many households with children, we are the proud owner of an Ikea Bekvam step stool, which lives in our kitchen and is used all the time. It helps the kids reach the counter, it helps our Peruvian sitter to reach the upper cabinets (mounted extra high to accommodate tall Dutch genes), and it helps me ...

Giggle
I'd read about trendy kid's shop Giggle a few times (most notably in Cookie magazine), and finally had the chance to check it out this week.  I have to say, it lives up to its expectations of being a well-edited, fun, bright kid's shop.  The boutique stocks all the trendy brands, with a slant towards ...
