A BEAUTIFUL KIDS ROOM DECORATED IN SOFT COLORS

rafa-kids-bench-08

This lovely kids room is decorated in beautiful soft colors. The bed is designed by Rafa kids and comes in 4 finishes : wood, whitewash (featured in this post), white and dark chocolate. the subtle lines of this bed make it a beautiful element of any space. The bed is lifted just enough from the ground to provide the best comfort when lying, sitting or chilling out on, during the day. It is a very slim bed design with a great material efficiency. The best of both worlds: very sustainable in production and beautifully minimal in design. The table is a new additional to the Rafa kids family. This versatile piece of furniture can be use a (side) table or as a bench.

Loving the beautiful packaging of these handcrafted plant based soaps by Keats. The products are all natural, unrefined and organic. Keats: “In selecting high quality and whole ingredients, we provide your skin with essential nutrients that revitalize function, restore balance, and encourage resilience. Produced by hand and in small-batches, our products retain a vibrancy and potency that serve the body well. We create our goods for body + spirit. In particular, we create our goods for our favorite kind of human beings: those who have stories, journeys, and feats large and small that define (and redefine) the true meaning of beauty.

A SCANDINAVIAN STYLE SUMMER COTTAGE IN CANADA

mjolk-cottage-2

This is the beautiful cottage of the owners of Mjölk, a design shop in Toronto selling work by artists and artisans from Scandinavia and Japan. The original cottage was “musty, moldy, and stuck in the seventies” but an extensive renovation transformed it in a lovely summer home. The whole inspiration for this cottage was the “Finnish summer home”. The owners explain: “There is a large Finnish and Estonian community in Ontario, in fact we have the highest amount of Finns outside of Finland. We liked the idea of bringing back the cottage to it’s original state with natural pine floors, and simple practical furniture. We wanted the pieces we chose to furnish the cottage with to feel as if they had always been there.”
