With our summer holiday coming to an end soon, the list of projects that we would like to start on is growing. One of them can start as soon as we are home: the kids rooms. Updating the kids rooms always makes sense after a summer break and at the beginning of a school year as kids mature so quickly in their time away from routine, homework and school uniforms. As surfer boy Sam just turned 9, we have his room in mind to start with. He got his own room earlier this year (after sharing a room most of his life with Jack) and we were still working of the ultimate finishing touch.
A collaborative shoot is one of our own styling initiatives to highlight products and brands we love. It allows us to be innovative and creative guided by our own enthusiasm and Dutch spontaneity. We believe in the strength of combining different brands, products and players, from well known companies to upcoming creatives.
The starting point for this collaborative shoot was this gorgeous Krethaus Nido bed. The combination of natural alder wood, the high headboard and the clever boxes at the end make it a perfect bed for growing kids. The bed can be used for toddlers, and when removing the boxes, its perfect for bigger kids.
After the last two settings, a nursery and a girls’ room, we wanted to portray a gender neutral setting which could be an inspiration for a shared room.
By balancing out the color pallet and bringing in playful elements, it can work both ways making it really playful and unique.
We could call Paris a tiny bit our home last weekend when we had the chance to visit Maison & Objet. With Hotel Panache as our base we walked an average of 10k a day to visit suppliers, inspirational stores and lots of cafes to refuel.
One of the highlights of our trip was visiting an artist that we have worked since we started Live Loud Girl. She is the creative brain behind some of the pieces that have given our installations that perfect finishing touch and the designer of the centerpiece in our most pinned photo ever. Live Loud Girl would not be the same without the works of Zoé Rumeau.
