Now that temperatures are souring in the Middle East, we have started to pack our bags to escape the heat. Another long summer holiday is on our door step, another climate waiting for us back home.
Where we have been wearing the same very light gear the last few weeks, we will need to think in shoes, long pants and sweaters again. With our new sneakers from Alex & Alexa are ready to travel. Although Dutch summers can be beautifully warm, there is always the chance of some chilly days with rain. And we love it!
We are spending a lot (!) of hours inside at the moment. With the sun flaming and the aircon blazing, the boys are catching up on their reading when its just too hot to handle out there.
To make their room a bit more comfortable, we brought in two beautiful floor cushions from Little Connoisseur. The perfect thrown for lounging kids. The cotton cushions have such nice details like a golden exposed zip and a genuine leather adornment that can even be customized. Not a big surprise that our cushions say: PLAY and LOUD. And then we haven’t even mentioned the packaging… Get ready to be surprised!
I know we are not the only ones out there with a stationary fetish. Although we do nearly everything digitally, we often nostalgically look back on the days when we were still carrying around an agenda and a note book. And since those moments are rare, we want it to be gorgeous.
We came across the Swedish design brand Mini Empire. With a range of some beautifully illustrated paper ware, they made our heart skip a beat. Their products are very refined, detailed yet with a humorous and edgy feel so that they work for styling nurseries, kids rooms and for the adults too.
Lucky for all of us they do more then paper ware alone. Mini Empire features a range of playful toys, quirky textile and funky kitchen ware.
