CUTE COAT RACKS FOR KIDS

hanger-1

I am loving these cute animal coat racks made of birch wood. The hangers are created by NOtoys, a Dutch company that designs and produces sustainable products that children actually play with and at the same time match with the parents’ style and taste.

A MINIMALISTIC WOODEN KITCHEN

This beautiful kitchen is designed by Danish company Kobenhavns Mobelsnedkeri. The design is minimalistic but the fumed oak gives a sense of warmth to the clean lines. I love the huge glass doors that gives access to the pantry.

SIMPLE, SERENE & STYLISH: A BEAUTIFUL BATHROOM

bathroom-grey-2

I love this bathroom in Elizabeth Heier’s home as it is simply, stylish and serene. Three qualities that I think a bathroom should have. Elizabeth has used concrete for the floor and for the large sink. The shower cabin is the only place where tiles can be found. Grey towels and accessories made of natural materials give some color. The Vipp bin works really well in this space. You can read more about the bathroom renovation and about the products that were used on Elizabeth’s blog.

WOODEN TOYS FROM SARAH & BENDRIX

I love these handmade wooden toys from Sarah & Bendrix, a small design studio based in Surrey, United Kingdom. The toys are made of perfectly polished natural untreated wood. Non painted, unvarnished, so completely safe for children. These adorable toys will make wonderful family heirlooms as they will never go out of style and can be enjoyed by future generations as well.

A BEAUTIFUL RURAL HOME IN AUSTRALIA

elise-3

This beautiful rural home in New South Wales, Australia, was recently featured on The Design Files. Elise and Pablo’s home, which is a converted weatherboard church, is perched on a block of land near the Hawkesbury River. The church dates back to 1880, and was operational until 10 years ago. During the renovation one of the biggest job was to weatherboard and paint the whole inside of the building. Also, internal walls on the back veranda were demolished to create a large kitchen which looks out to the garden. The couple’s decorating style is relaxed, they have added things slowly and carefully. One of their latest additions is the beautiful Dedon nestrest hanging in the tree. How I would love to have this oversized bird’s nest in our garden!
