That would make one lucky new baby...

I've mentioned my love for Kalon Studios before but now seeing it in a room I love it even more! With the bright colors it really makes a statement in your nursery. And the options are there cause you can choose yellow, green, pink, red, black and raw. These are the Caravan Dresser and Caravan Crib.

Deeply, madly and heavenly in love

Is it because I still embrace the inner child or because I love a bit of humor in ones interior? I really have fallen for the prints by the Swedish ISA Form. The colors are spot on and I like the clean cut lines and finishing touches such as the rosy cheeks.

What inspired me on Instagram: G.Nancy

I was at a birthday party the other day explaining how I managed to find all this online inspiration while being a mother of 2 boys (one 21 months and one 8 weeks old). Where did I find the time? I find that more and more it just comes knocking on my doorstep. Through Instagram for instance. This is another great shop from New Zealand that just happened to find me on this platform. 
I love the robes by G.Nancy, specially this flamingo (is that because I am a boys mom...) and the elephant. But there's more. Cute organic pj's and a wide range of happy socks.

What inspired me on Instagram: Pop Factory Shop

I absolutely LOVE Instagram. The most serious addiction I've ever had. Actually met some people in real life that I got to know through Instagram. And I keep finding these amazing nice products and inspirations. So I've decided to make a new regular blog category: What inspired me on Instagram.
Like this Bigcartel Pop Factory Shop. Found them through the Bridget Lee account. They have masks and capes for kids, these golden decals you see above (the Dream on Dream Lion would be great for Maas) and very sweet the Sun up till sun down print.

Can't wait to put my babies legs in these little leggings

When your kids are little I don't feel you should bother them with jeans. They should explore their little world in comfortable soft clothing. There are more and more nice brands coming out with great prints. And I was happy to spot these little cuties by House of Mia. Leggings available for both toddlers as well as older kids. 
Also fallen for the cute colorful little shoes. They're by Freshly Picked who recently got nominated for the Martha Stewart American Made award.

Illustrations with a bit of humor

Je zult me niet snel betrappen op van die vrolijke namen geplakt op de slaapkamer deuren. Prima bij anderen maar niet helemaal mijn smaak. Moet wel zeggen dat ik gevoelig blijk te zijn voor de alphabet blocks van illustratrice Eleanor Stuart uit Engeland. Iedere strakke letter krijgt net even een leuk grapje mee. Of het nou een bergbeklimmer is, een maanlandschap of een drillend mannetje. Met een prettige afmeting van 15x15 cm is het leuk om op deze manier de naam boven een bedje te hangen.
You won't see the colorful names of my kids on their bedroom door. Fine for others but it has never been my style. However... I must say I'm quite fond of these bold alphabet blocks with ABC images with little fun additions from British illustrator Eleanor Stuart. With the nice small size of 15x15 cm you can easily put your kids name above their bed.

A cute ETSY discovery: Pink Cheeks Studios

I absolutely melted when I spotted these creations by the Pink Cheeks Studios on Etsy. They are the little treasures by Nichol Brinkman from LA. With great imagination and skills she makes these original products. Highlights for me are most definately the family mobiles and these little paintings. Would love to get my hands on some of these items. Below some more eye candy. Make sure you visit her blog to see her latest creations and to see how her workspace looks.

A dark chocolate sleeping feast

You've seen the brand RAFA KIDS on my blog before and now they have a very delicious new color for their teen bed: Dark Chocolate. Want to see this beautiful bed in person? Make sure you make it to the Inside Design Amsterdam organized by Elle Decoration. That's where they'll show it to the public for the first time. Always very exciting. For now, let's enjoy this beautiful styled image.

Magnetic creativity to share with your kids

I must admit this is probably more something for big kids and most likely for creative moms. A few weeks ago I was shopping with my sister (mother of 2 little boys) and she pointed out to me that very often we like design type toys and kids prefer the most bold colors, cheapest plastic material and ugliest design. Never the less. I would feel it is my obligation to at least try to introduce them to well shaped toys that help them develop and that are a lust of my eye! Such as these TATLIN cardboard magnetics by Kidsonroof from the Netherlands. There are three different type of sets: Tatlin Big, Archetype cars & boats and Archetype buildings.

Unique and individual, what more can you wish for?

I love opening new doors online. Often I forget the road I had taken to get to a certain website. One thing I do know this time. I found this brand on the Finnish blog Bee and Bambi. What brand it is...? Annika. I love the uniqueness and the individuality you can offer your kid with these clothes. Find more about this brand and look at the new Autumn and Winter collection here.

Endless hours of fun and play with these XL coloring prints

How amazing are these supersized coloring pictures by KEK AMSTERDAM. Available in the prints To the stars, In the forest and In the city. Make sure the older kids don't have any homework that needs to be done first because once you get started there is no stopping to see the result grow and grow. A great idea to keep kids entertained without anything starting with an 'i'.
Another thing I love about these is the price. For only € 7,95 you don't have to break the bank to get your own.

The best and the worst

The best thing about 10IS (pronounced Ten-is) is their collection. They have a color and style for every ones. And I will find it hard to believe that you cannot pick a favorite one. At the same time the worst thing about 10IS is their collection. So much to choose from that it is making my eyes blurry. Do you go for jeans, or coral and maybe the green ones... Here's a list of retailers that stock their collection.

Hoping and dreaming and someday maybe sleeping....

Imagine having creative parents. And than imagine a creative parent that is also very DIY handy or has the number of a great carpenter. It's combinations like these that result in sleeping arrangements such as this HUT. It was posted last march on OEUF le blog and although many tutorials were requested no reply could be found. So if you don't have the above mentioned parent you're stuck watching this image and hoping and dreaming....

Dress me up in handmade

If you're a lover of something original for your little girls than Two Els is an online must visit. This brand founded in NYC only started this summer with their first collection. But how promising was it and is their new preview of the autumn/winter season. It's clothes that put a smile on my face and that will suit the cheeky little girls really well. I'm an all boys mom otherwise these would go straight to my wish list.

Throw me a monkey

What a great new find. It's hard to not fall instantly in love with these cute little monkey blankets from Sweden. Made by Minifellow from 100% jaquard woven cotton and produced in Sweden. I already have so many bankets for babies but am very tempted to add this to the endless list. Baby light blue works best for me but I also find that the licorice dark grey colored one will work very well with the trend you see in black and white decorations for kids rooms.

Continue the night with your head in the clouds

Don't get me wrong. I'm over the moon happy with the blue skies we're having over the Netherlands these days. Didn't mind the clouds and rain either cause it already was soo much better than the haze we experienced in Singapore.
But when clouds come as cute as these I have to give them a spot on my blog. Spotted on Pinterest which lead me to this site that sells them. This pretty headboard allows you to not only spend the days with your head in the clouds but also the nights.

I can highly recommend lötiekids

Sometimes I get some products from a sponsor. I enjoy that because of course I love a present now and than and second because I get to test their products. And in all fairness... it's easier to recommend something if you've tried it yourself.
For lötiekids clothes from Barcelona my little boy was the one to do the testing. We've tried some shirts and shorts and I must say I really really love them. The material is really soft and holds well after washing, as well as the colors. And they've thought of little ones by putting buttons around the neckline making it easy to put on and off. What I personally like is the amazing prints. Beautiful detailed fishes, bikes, houses and now with the new collection sea stars and kangaroos.
Luckely I'm not the only one loving the lötiekids products. I've spotted some other (Dutch) users in my Instragram feed and they are also very fond of this brand.
