Since I had my baby boy, I’ve spent many hours browsing the web looking for gorgeous things. A little place in the www called Petite and Small was the perfect place to start. They are a blog that specialise in all things mini. They write some really great posts about new products, crafts and provide lots of helpful ideas and tips for decorating your little ones room.

They also have a fantastic store directory, which is great when looking for cute things to buy.  Hop over to have a look, I guarantee you will be there for a while!

A colourful post today! I just love these exquisite papers. The patterns are just beautiful.

A pale neutral palette drew me today to these images. Nice, calm and just what I was looking for :)

There’s something peaceful about this image. The texture and simplicity just enhance its composition.

Such beauty and simplicity in kid’s toys is rare. “Archipelago” and “Shipping” by Norwegian Design house Permafrost are perfectly hand- crafted wooden pieces. They peak above the surface and tell a maritime story. Just beautiful.

I had a salad for lunch and as much as I love eating clean, these images just make me think about sugar! It's warming up outside (at last) and I'm looking forward to more time outdoors. Our place is around 2 minutes from the beach, so it will be bliss to cook under the stars this summer.

So finally after weeks of design work and adjustment our new site is live! We wanted a more interactive website with lots going on - not to mention a new e-commerce platform - the old one had too many limitations. Hop over and take a look :)



A dreamy workspace I spotted over on Mia Linnmans blog.  The black and glass cabinet is just gorgeous. What wonderful inspiration, thank you Mia.

These look too delicious. Seriously, I need to make these at the weekend for a treat (Ha ha, if I'm good enough in the week).

It's that time of year again. Everything starts to feel new and fresh. the windows are open, the cool breeze is running through the house. I love it, it motivates me and definitely gives me a spring in my step.

Converted 70's Bungalow in Belgium


So I can totally see myself embarking on a project like this. We are house hunting at the moment and it's a real toss up between a period property near to town (always been a bit of a dream) or an old 70's bungalow with lots of grounds - with which we would undoubtably do something like this.  We will surely know as soon as we walk into it. It will just feel like home.

I have been absent lately. Felix bear and I have been sick (again) with chest infections, colds etc, etc. We seriously couldn't have a healthier lifestyle, we eat really well, live near the beach, I have a great work/life balance, but I can't seem to stop these bugs! Seriously it's insane. Come on sunshine,  come out to play and warm us all up already. Burn these bugs away!

P.S. Don't forget to enter my current giveaway on this post.

Are you ready for an overdose of gorgeousness? Seriously, I could order everything on this beautifully curated web-shop for little ones and lucky me, they are my newest sponsor ;) 

Hop over to take a look, you won't want to leave... They also have a very cute blog and their Facebook page is here.

Images: Ooh Noo with thanks.


These earthy colours are so nice. Their new campaign illustrates beautifully how String shelves can fit anywhere. I agree - I have some - they are now in my kitchen, but who knows where they will be in a few months..... I just love them.

Images: String with thanks.



I've just been over on long time favourite web-shop Vuela. They are one of my lovely sponsors and oh my.... there are some gorgeous new things over there.  Seriously gorgeous (and I'm not just saying that because they're my sponsor!). Hop over to take a look.Images: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

What an elegant space. This apartment was created by Italian architects Quincoces Drago & Partners.  ....and just look at the view.

Wintery still life by Mary Jo Hoffman of Still Blog.  Needless to say - I love her work.

How's the weather where you are? Wintery? Wet? We have some crazy weather today - stormy and rainy - I can hear the waves crashing here in my office *Cosy days*



 A nice treat for you this lovely Monday afternoon! What an inspirational space. Gorgeous high ceilings, huge windows, vintage furniture and I just love the leaning art work.  I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a lovely time - I spent it in Haarlem with my love, catching up with friends and drinking coffee....It was just great.

Gorgeous friends of mine Tim and Tómas have just renovated their stunning old house situated in Akureyri (north of Iceland). They have truly worked some magic in this place - and I for one, cannot wait to go and stay there. They've mastered the delicate balance of keeping things traditional and cosy whilst finishing in a modern, minimalistic style. 

Akureyri is a beautiful city - it is known as "the capital of the north" and it is surrounded by amazing  nature. They are taking bookings now, so if you have a trip to Iceland planned this year (so many people are visiting right now) - you must include this little gem on your itinerary.

My good friend Mel snapped this of my baby bear the other day.  His eyes look so dark in this picture....Life is great at the moment (apart from a bout of cold that we've all had - for about a month).  The work/mamma balance is working out really well. I feel like I've found my flow and I finally feel satisfied that I'm putting enough into both.  Felix is changing so much and becoming a really funny, adorable, kind little boy. He's full of energy and definitely has his daddy's cheekiness - seriously he makes my heart melt every day. I really do feel like the luckiest girl in the world. 



Some new characters have joined our collection at Story North.  Toto the Totem Toy is designed by Rock and Pebble and each has been handmade from solid maple in the US. Don't you just love?

I love this raw, minimal design by architects Georg Nickish and Selina Walder and *sigh* the view from that bath is something else.  Could I live something so stark? Yep I think maybe I could....
