kidscase

28.2.12





Kidscase, a Dutch fashion brand for kids, designs tranquil, versatile and fashion-forward baby and children's clothing for boys and girls.

Comfortable, wearable and sophisticated. Wearing a Kidscase product always looks great, no matter what and about 70% of each collections is made of organic cotton. Loving this brand very much, love the basic look of the clothes but with just that little extra and detail that gives it something special.

Take a look at the website for more inspiration...and you can order online :)

Handmade things have a sense of authenticity...

Unika is the brand new, hand crafted set of mouth blown glass lamps from Northern Lighting. Originally they were designed for Restaurant Gronbech and Churchill in Copenhagen.

A beautiful new addition to the Northern Lighting range. Love the clean, simple yet industrial look of these lamps.

MENU

My friend Vivian and I visited Maison & Objet a few weeks ago. She did a great post about the brand Menu.

This is what she said about it and I totally agree with her :)

We rediscovered Menu. Their new products are great and they made a beautiful menuMAG. Especialy love the wooden owls! Enjoy!

I also really liked the new book binders that offer you a great and stylish way to show your favourite (cook)books, magazines etc.

Thank you Vivian for this post and take a look at her blog Lepetitbirdtoldme for more inspiration.

100% love for this Dutch houseboat, designed by Piet Boon.
Love the black painted wood on the outside, the clean lines and the warm colors used for the fabrics and furniture inside.

How great would it be to live in such a place...

Alexa Lixfeld porcelain

6.2.12

Alexa Lixfeld has created these porcelain products: handmade tableware, vessels and vases from solid coloured porcelain, matt polished on the outside, glazed on the inside.

Visible traces of their handmade production make a beautiful yet subtle decoration.

The colours used are amazing, from truly dark to some lighter nuances and the use of matt and glazed finishing gives it that little extra.

Take a look for more of the collection here.
