Lukedrewthis

Turn your child’s drawing into a beautiful gift for a loved one.   One of my very best friends Julie Cox tried to do just that.  Wanting to put her son Luke’s magical chalk drawing onto a tee shirt for daddy’s birthday she searched the internet for ages and came up empty!   Not one to ever give up she ended up bringing the idea to a local printer in Bristol where she lives and had it made herself!  What happened next was unexpected- having seen her partner Mark wearing Luke’s drawing all the other dads wanted one too- and a business was born!  Lukedrewthis are made from 100% organic cotton tees and water based ink. It doesn’t stop there-you can have your mini Picasso’s works of art on 100% cotton bags!  A truly one of a kind idea that will bring joy and make such a lasting impression!  Can’t wait to give Tallulah’s teachers their bags this Christmas!

LAURETTE

LAURETTE

We’re getting ready for a big move and a total redesign of Tallulah’s bedroom!  We’re SO EXCITED!  I’m loving the vintage feel of Laurette.   Creativity, functionality, quality and respect of the environment are the core values of the collection.   I particularly love the feminine/industrial feel of their shelving HERE.  Since Tallulah has started Kindergarten and homework will soon be piling in – this pink vintage desk will house it beautifully!

OEUF PERCH BED

Children are fascinated by bunk beds and Tallulah is certainly no exception.  There’s something magical about being cocooned in a space of your own to retreat into your imagination.  The elegant, modern and eco-friendly Oeuf Perch Bunk Bed is such a beautiful addition to any childs room and would please the hardest aesthetes among parents.  The bed’s multiple configurations make it super versatile and excellent for play -keep it traditional or go for a sophisticated loft feel.   I can smell the buttery popcorn and hear the giggles of a sleepover already.

AREAWARE Kids

Areaware is NOT just for kids.  I’m still buzzing over my recent delivery of Areaware 10 string light designed by Patrick Townsend.  An exposed 10 bulb dimmable light sculpture that when on its lowest setting is incredibly beautiful and soothing.  Now Tallulah and I have turned our attention to Ross Menuez’s designed colorful animal pillow dolls.  Made with 100% organic cotton and inspired by victorian shaped pillows we have our eye on a gorilla, a kitty, a fox, a fawn and a pug.  Decisions… Desicions… Tallulah’s dream is to become a mommy by age 5 to either a long haired chihuahua or more recently a black pug- as we’ve all been won over by our friend John Slattery’s (editor of A Wanted Magazine) ridiculously cute pug named Boris!   The jury is still out on when the newest addition to our family will arrive so we’ll definitely include aforementioned pug and hope her motherly instincts are satisfied- for the moment anyway.

GOAT MILK


GOAT-MILK Kidware

Spring is in the air and Goatmilk Kidware new Spring 12 looks are available.  Inspired by a European aesthetic with green sensibilities and an emphasis on beauty.  Goatmilk is made of 100% organic prewashed cotton and produced with a resolute commitment to quality, fair trade and the environment.  I met Roland and Tania the designers behind Goatmilk at playtime ny and fell in love with their vision.

The imagery, the understated palette (white, heather, gray, rose) delicate pointelles and the buttery softness of the pieces. The new Spring collection brings us strong pinstripes -all beautiful to wear on their own.  Now to wait patiently while they expand for the whole family…
