My husband brought a bunch of a new storage boxes for our LEGO lovers boys. Yes, a LEGO storage Bricks ! and you have to believe me, I haven’t seen any so stylish and well made boxes for a long time! I think they will survive a life time. My toddler is over the moon and play with them all the time. We have selected basic colours : grey, white, black and two tones of blue. They occupy our living room since few days and I really do not mind. I hope that during this weekend my 3 boys, are going to sort out all the lego collection, and put them into this great storage boxes. Pictures are coming!

Rafa-kids’ collection of bedding, blankets, pillows and baskets for a child’s room is growing this season. Since we have our own design beds and desk and make pictures of them in our studio I was always in a hunt for products to use in a photo session. This time I have the comfort to play with our new little collection of home deco accessories…and it’s feels like a good start.
I like Ferm Living’s products since a long time and I think they are one of the best kid’s brands on the market at the moment. Now we have in our collection two new bedding sets for toddlers: bedding with triangles grey and bedding with triangles rose and little bear kite. Many parents buy our R toddler bed for kinds younger that 3, and then they ask us for a perfect bed dumper for their child. We think this soft pillow snake can be a wonderful option. What’s more? A simple yet stylish baskets to store all of the kids’ toys! ….and there is more coming…..
Get the look :

This weekend became suddenly chilly and rainy. I enjoyed the Indian Summer of the last weeks, but I guess it is time to start prepare our self and our house for a more cosy days inside. The new warm clothes for boys are sorted, the new winter boots ordered….and the NEW products for winter going to be slowly added to Rafa-kids in the coming days.
I saw this beautiful soft, pink grey blanket at the M&O Paris in September. I knew from the first moment, that it has to become part of our collection for this winter. The patterns are designed by talented Japanese artist Makoto Kogoshima . All Rafa-kids’ blankets are coming from a Finish family company. I hope you like it as much as we do. I think this blanket can nicely fit a toddler room through teenager time, because the patterns are so timelessly beautiful .
Keep your self warm this weekend.

It all started with a boy’s room with a lot of green. Remember this post : green-in-childrens-rooms ? I have discovered Maaike Koster’s work then and started to follow her artistic journey. Her instagram account is so beautifully calm, clean and just perfect to me. I don’t know how she does it with two small kids around, but still.…
and they are so cool ! Maaike stays with her monochrome style and twist of humour and simplicity. Well done!

It’s officially weekend and I see stars not because of Christmas! Stars are such a perfect shape to use in fashion and home deco. I’m very exited to see it coming all around in children's world and that many designers are inspired by it. It’s dreamy and classic shape doesn’t go out of fashion and get boring after some time. I really like the wall stickers, available in any possible colours. Bedding with starts is also one of my all time favourites. What about the fashion? The splash of super cool graphic stars on Bobo choses winter collection - do you like it ? The gloves are absolutely beautiful. Can I have it in bigger size?
I wish you a wonderful weekend!

After my post about shades of pink,
I would like to show you a cute room of a little girl from Australia.
Since our Rafa-kids' R toddler bed travels in far destinations, the world seems small to us. Sometimes we receive pictures of a room with the furniture and it’s always such a special moment. All the pictures you see are made by talented mom Catherine Wilson, who is owner of catherineandgrace blog. You can read her own personal story about her daughter's room here : little-miss-toddler-bed. I can’t say much more about it. It’s a pleasure to see ,that our design is appreciated and received with such a care. Thank you so much Catherine!

Shades of pink, how many of them we know ?
light pink, champagne pink, baby pink, orchid pink, cherry blossom pink, cotton candy, dusty rose ,
and many many more...
I'm surprised , that I start to like delicate pink and I don’t know,
if it’s because I see it so often at the moment, or I’m changing…
Let’s welcome November with this rich, moody and soft shades of pink.

I missed some how the giveaway run on the decor8blog for this amazing book “ IN DETAIL “ by Hans Blomquist . Now it’s definitely on my list for Christmas. Hans Blomquist is Swedish well know art director and stylist. Hans started out working for IKEA in Sweden , art directing their catalogue, later on moved to London and currently lives in Paris. In his portfolio we can find work for such a clients like H&M, Zara, Mark&Spenser, AM.PM. I can’t wait to read his new book and see the world through his own eyes. Of course the images are the most important, but I always wish to know the stories hidden behid them.
