• Playful posters

    Danish start-up company Villum Vito designs and sells colourful posters to stimulate children’s imagination. “It’s my mission to add a little happiness to the world with my posters,” says owner Christina Stenderup.  Almost one year ago Villum Vito was founded by Christina Stenderup. “I have always been passionate about drawing and I have a natural interest for the use of language. When one of my close friends gave birth to a baby boy, I made my first poster for him as a gift. This really got me hooked on the idea of turning my drawings into a business.” An intense period started, where Christina not only transformed her best creations…

  • DIY: Daybed with storage

    If you’ve been following my blog and my Instagram for a while, then you have undoubtedly seen our daybed. My husband and I built it when I was pregnant of our second daughter. Now, I must admit that I’ve made many bad interior decisions when I was preggo with her, but this wasn’t one of them! I have done countless naps on it during my third trimester and I love to do my (school-) reading on it. The girls also sit and read on it, so adorable to see! It is a little on the low side, so even the youngest one (she is 1,5 years old) can crawl on…

  • Inspiration: Tijn and Jules

    Kidsroom design is Jules’ passion and she has gained lots of followers on social media by putting a lot of love into her son’s nurseries. Now she is in for a new adventure: running her own online shop for baby and kids bedding and sleepwear. Sleepless nights turned into a business Where: Amsterdam, the Netherlands Who: Jules and Tijn, Flo (3,5) and Freddie (1) Type: Three story house from the 1930s In a nutshell: ”Our style is Scandi inspired, but we put our own Dutch twist to it with wooden and color pop accents.” Jules lives and breathes kidsroom design. It started when the family moved to their new house…

  • DIY: Rainbow hanging

    We all love rainbows, right?! I think I knew the colors of the rainbow in the right order before I could tie my shoe laces. And now they are fashionable again. Yay! So here’s how to make those cute rainbow hangings, if you don’t feel like bleeding half of your salary to get someone else or a renowned brand to make them for you (and fair enough! It takes time to make them, so if you want to make a living out of selling anything hand made, you should charge a small fortune for your products – they are both unique and I bet a lot of love has gone…

  • Inspiration: My dad’s place

    African masks on the eating table, a thousand antlers in the kitchen and giant paintings taking up every centimeter of the walls. Welcome to my father’s house. All worlds into one Where: The Hague, the Netherlands Who: Peter Type: Lower floor town house Living surface: 96m2 In a nutshell: More is more ‘So why interiors?’ I’ve been asked this question a lot after I started my blog. There are many reasons for it, but today I’d like to shed a little light on one of them. And that is that I grew up with loads of interior inspiration around me. My father has a very keen eye for interior decorating,…

    What: Christmas table decor. Supplies: Pine twigs, apples, tea lights. Duration: 25 minutes. How to: A table setting is rather personal, so use what you’ve got and what you like. I stayed true to the theme of my branch, and added only pine twigs to the table and apple lights, which I’d also made a few days ago (see December 19th). To stay in the gold and red theme, which is also the color scheme of our Christmas tree (see December 14th), I added red napkins. Those I spiced up with a little mushroom and a little pine twig as well. The big branches I will remove during dinner, because…

    What: Winter wonderland guirlande for above the Christmas table. Supplies: Branch, string lights, (fish-) string, screws or small hooks, pine branches, pine cones, stars or other types of decorations. Duration: 45 minutes. How to: Find or buy a large branch. We found ours in our favorite nature area and it is about 3 meters long.  Wrap your string lights around it. Attach to the ceiling with a string, by binding it to the screws/hooks you’ve screwed into it beforehand. We used fish string to give the branch a floating effect and because it can bear a lot of weight. Don’t hang it too low, because you will not be able…

    What: Ice cold candles. Supplies: Jars with a wide opening, plastic cups, twigs, scotch tape or something to way down the plastic cups, water and a freezer. Tea lights for when your candle holder is done. Duration: 15 minutes and one night in the freezer. How to: Cut your twigs into small pieces. Put some of them on the bottom of your jar. Place the plastic cup on top of it (it will be a bit wobbly). Make sure the bottom of your plastic cup is a little bigger than your tea lights. Put the other twigs between the jar and the plastic cup. Pour water between the jar and…

    What: Gift wrapping. Supplies: Wrapping paper, potato, knife, (finger-)paint. Duration: 30 minutes. How to: Cut out a Christmas tree in the potato with your knife. Dip in in the paint and press onto your wrapping paper. It doesn’t get much easier! The story behind it: If you’ve never made prints using potato’s, raise your hands! Me! I can’t remember ever making potato prints (but I might have… mum, dad?). So this was a lovely chance to get on board and do a little stamping with potatoes. And the 5-yo thought it was a lot of fun too. It is difficult to mess it up so you’re almost guaranteed a great time! Instagram…
