BABY ESSENTIALS
The Nesta's Nest baby bed, handcrafted and all-natural
Our bedroom is a very calm place if you compare it to the rest of the house. It's on the top floor, above the kids bedrooms and the living rooms where all of the craziness takes place. Ascending the stairs to our bedroom means leaving behind the hectic life, and entering the quiet quarters. Bram ...

Personalised baby gifts -- such a sweet idea for newborns!
A few of my friends have given Bram gifts that were personalised with his name and I think it's such a thoughtful and fun idea! I know all of the gifts that were given to Bram are chosen with care and consideration, and I love them all. But these personalised gifts are very special to ...

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 ...

The Organic Company - soft linens for the home
Next to stationery I have a love of kitchen linens. My husband calls it an obsession but I prefer to call it a love! I recently discovered The Organic Company which has turned my collection upside down again. Founded by Joy Vasiljev, The Organic Company is a Danish design made from 100% certified organic cotton. Design, quality ...

Waiting for baby... our nursery corner
The waiting game has began! I'm nearly 39 weeks pregnant and it can be really any day now... or not! I always find these weeks around the due date so strange. All is quiet and calm, everything is more or less prepared for the arrival of the baby. And no one knows when or how ...

Christmas in Australia...
The other day I was in the grocery store and I saw a big banner with an image of sliced, juicy mangos. In red Christmassy writing the banner said 'The Taste of Christmas'. I had to stop myself from giggling. Having spent all of my life in the northern hemisphere, the taste of Christmas is ...

Paper Cut Maps by Famille Summerbelle (and a new one from Copenhagen!)
One of the treasured art pieces we have in our living room is the paper cut map of Amsterdam by Famille Summerbelle. I just love the details of it (some of them are so cute and funny!) and the concentric shape of the city, with all its canals, which makes it so typically 'Amsterdam'. The ...

Sweet shadow boxes from Dorimu
Last year I was introduced to Živa and Saša of the small Austrian company Dorimu, who together create darling, whimsical swinging fairies. Entirely made by hand by combining a detailed level of woodworking and needle-felting, the fairies are so delicate and sweet. Now, Dorimu also offers the most precious shadow boxes. Again, entirely made by ...

The seasonal table, and felt ornaments from Crafspring. For decoration or play!
We love having a seasonal table set up in our house. We gather finds from nature, and we display them together with some sweet felt or wooden artefacts. I have boxes in storage marked 'Autumn', 'Halloween', 'Christmas', etc. -- and it's such a fun event every season, to rediscover what's inside and create a new ...

Our living room... some photos
Before the summer, our beloved sofas (which we had for more than 12 years and which had been passed down to us from friends who used them for over 20 years before us!) well, died. The covers were completely torn and the springs were so bad you basically ended up on the floor when you'd ...

Tips for decorating a teen girl's bedroom from Bodie and Fou
My friend Karine from Bodie and Fou got in touch last week to share her recent before-and-after renovation project of her daughter, Mila's bedroom. Mila is the same age as my eldest (and she's also really into surfing!) so it's always interesting for me to see the girl version of twelve years old. (I often marvel ...

Beautiful, handcrafted furniture from Kalon Studios
My friend, Michaele, and her husband Johann, started Kalon Studios back in 2007 shortly after the birth of their first daughter. They struggled to find a crib that met their needs in terms of design and sustainability, so they decided to create their own. Within a year of creating that first crib, Kalon was winning ...

There are more than a million words in the English language. We remember the most common term and associate more complex or less frequent words with that. So the clever people from @mrswordsmithofficial have developed cards linking word groups together. To make this memorable to children, they developed learning tools designed by comic book illustrators. Super fun and memorable, the designs are instantly associated to the word. So clever!
