Black & White inspiration for a kids room

Time for some kids room inspiration! This we’re going for the Black & White theme which you can’t go wrong with. I like using “grown”up colors for children rooms. There we go! 1 Dont’you love this mini Karl? So you CAN cuddle with Karl Lagerfeld. Mr K is made from  100% organic cotton and is a creation from the French designer Caroline Castagna-Suarez aka My name is Simone. Available via Knuffels a la carte2 These moustaches are little stickers from my own shop. With these fun stickers you can give the kids room a personal designed wallpaper or a unique decorated cabinet. The possibilities are endless. 3 This sturdy cushion I found at Society6 and is a design from Terry Fan. 4 “You are just perfekt to me” Well isn’t that the best print for your kid? It’s a original Letterpress print which is handmade each for each, so in detail unique. You can order it at Printlove from Dutch Photographer Marjon Hoogervorst. In the summer of 2012 she got the inspiration after some Letterpress Classes, some music and a discussion with a friend about his episode, to make these prints. She enjoyed making them because of the authenticity and all the handwork (no computers and camera's! :). 5 Which little (and big!) boy wouldn’t appreciate this miniature Porsche 356B cabriolet? With this dream car for all the men in the world I am finishing this blogpost. Hope you liked it.

What have I been doing? Part 1

Well, that was a while ago that I said hi to you guys. I am sorry, but I have been swamped lately. It started in april with the birthday of our lovely little girl, then our sweet son had his birthday and besides all the party planning it was (and still is) very busy at the Studio (which all is very good and fun, but it left me with no time to share a decent blogpost over here). When I started this blog I decided that I choose kwality over kwantity so I didn’t want to post something that doesn’t make me happy to see. You know I get always very happy when I post some beautiful photos or an inspiring collage. I hope you get the same good feeling as I do when you read my blog and maybe get a little inspired too. So let’s go back to april, I will show you what I was busy with. In april Fiene turned 4 and in The Netherlands when you turn 4 you go to school. Can you believe that, my little girl is already going to school? But before she went to school she had to say goodbye at her daycare. So that means (for this dedicated crea mom) making gifts for the children, buying gifts for the nursery staff (which are really sweet women) and baking some little bundt cakes to make this party complete. For the kids I made personalized namestickers and Fiene chose the models of the stickers. She wanted flowers and hearts for the girls and a full moon (a circle) and stars for the boys. So here you see “the full moon” I made for her little friend Ravi. I wrapped the stickers in envelopes and closed them with my newest addition to the Studio Haikje collection: Ministickers. I am so fond of them. No present or envelope is leaving this house without a ministicker! Hope my friends like them as much as I do… Well back to april: Fiene's goodbye party was a big succes and she is going to school for some weeks now. I am so proud of her, she is really doing great at school! So cute to see her at her little chair every morning in her class. She does still talk about her daycare, it’s very understandable that she misses the kids over there and the staff. But luckily she still sees some of her little friends at the schoolyard when they are dropping off their older brothers/sisters with their mum and she also makes some great new friends in her cute little class. Today is the birthday (yes we keep on partying here!) of my other half so I am going to wrap some things up and make some new ministickers… DO you also like the ministickers? And what kind of model do you like best, or which figure do I have to add to the collection? Would be nice to hear your opinion.
