I recently received an email from Kevin Lindberg telling me that he had just launched his illustrated children’s alphabet, The Curious ABCs, on Kickstarter. I took a look at his project and I loved it as it’s both artwork and a teaching tool. Each alphabet character is made up of things that start with that letter, creating a multi-layered learning experience for children that is both stimulating and fun. The Curious ABCs is designed to make the the experience of learning the ABCs a more engaging and interesting one for kids. At the same time, it is intended to be a beautiful object that would look great as a piece of art in your home. I think it is beautiful, don’t you? The drawings would also be perfect as art work in a nursery or kids room.
Kevin is trying to get the funding for this project together through Kickstarter. If you like to be a part of this, you can find more information here. For example if you pledge an amount of 30$ you will get his beautiful book. I think Kickstarter is a great way for artists and entrepreneurs to get projects from the ground and it is fun being part of it.

Remember this post? I can’t belief that already three years has gone by, time flies! Our sweet little boy has turned three a few days ago. That helpless little baby is now a big boy with with a mind of his own and lots of willpower. The Early Rider learner bike that we gave him for his birthday was a big hit! Not only is the wooden bike very stylish (I love the leather saddle!) but the bike is perfect for developing balancing skills. Happy birthday Kick!!
This cozy family home is situated in a small street in New York City. The town house opens onto a lovely garden and offers a beautiful rooftop terrace overlooking the city. Inside there is a very European atmosphere. The owner has painted all the rooms in muted colors such as pink brown and blue-gray before furnishing the various rooms with beautiful, unusual furniture pieces and art.
I am big fan of Oeuf NY. This French/American husband and wife team creates beautiful eco friendly children’s furniture, toys, clothing and accessories. Here are some beautiful images featuring Oeuf products.
This the home of Nina Blychert, a Swedish illustrator who now lives in London with her French husband and their two children. In her beautiful Edwardian house near Hyde Park Nina has combined the simplicity of Scandinavian style with French influences. I love the combination of old and new, like the modern pendant from Droog design combined with an old wooden table.
