Today I’m loving … the colorful designs from Tove Johansson, a Swedish designer based in Paris working in fashion, textiles and illustration.
The bold patterned tea towel (image above) can brighten up any kitchen! The cushion on the same pattern is pretty nice too..

Some lovely new products from by nord have arrived. I especially love the baby animal cushions which are adorable for a nursery or kids room!
Featured above are: the Feather cushion, Black Horse cushion and Icelandic Horses cushion and the Deer duvet cover.
Today I’m loving … this rocket garland created by Guusje’s Appeltaart for Oh My! Handmade Goodness. You can find a tutorial for making this garland yourself here. Great for a little boy’s room!
Last week I posted about the soon to be launched H&M Home Kids collection. Today I received some more images of the collection that will be available from July. In this first collection colorful items are combined with neutral tones. Materials used are soft knits, faux fur and organic cotton. There are some lovely items with star print which I have my eye on.

How cool is this! This art center for kids creates the perfect setting for drawing, crafts and creative activities. I would have loved this as a kid. Actually, I still would love to have one!
It is available from US store Guidecraft for 450 USD.
Today I’m loving … these bags that are used to organise kids clothes (socks, vests, pants). An easy DIY project?

Did you know that H&M is launching a home collection for babies and kids? This collection is expected to be available online by the end of July. Here is a sneak preview of some items that I have my eye on. The lovely little sacks are great for storing small things, and isn’t that bear cushion too cute?!
Today some ‘natural style’ interiors. I have a love for raw, natural materials and these kind of materials can be found in every room of our home. When getting toys for our 1.5 year old son we try to get him things that we don’t mind looking at (mostly from wood). But kids do love colorful plastic things and there are some very ugly plastic toys lying around the house as well. I LOVE that wooden train in the top picture. What kind of toys do you have for your kids?

I do love an all white home but with children it is not very practical. But Paula Ekland has four children and the white color scheme in her family home in The Netherlands seems to work. Paula: “The more white I added, the calmer I felt”. I have featured some images of the Ekland family’s home before (for example you can see the photo with kids drawings here) but I was happy to find more pretty pictures of this home on the IKEA FAMILY LIVE website.

I had this problem and I am very happy to have these beautiful, handmade accessories for nurseries and kids room now available from Le Souk.
