Hi! This is Vanessa, from the family travel blog BozAround. Florence so kindly invited me to be a contributor on Pirouette. I’ll be sharing my travel notes, what inspires me from around the world, where we’re dreaming to take our children next.
Paola Noe’s KidsroomZOOM! will be part of the 78.edition of Pitti Bimbo. Located in the New View area, it will showcase a handpicked selection of super interesting brands and projects related to the kids world. A special preview of what will be on display during the Milano Design Week next April 2014.
It’s just brilliant, like everything by super creative French brand Zoe de Las Cases. Take your scissors, glue and chocolates and start making your own advent calendar…
These cushions look like candies to me! By Coco Hellein, available at the Collection, a great store (in le Marais, Paris) and e-store, always so good at spotting incredible decor ideas and products. Focus this month on the brand created by Corinne Hellein, colour expert and consultant.
This lovely cardboard house has something very British. Called ‘1Rose Place’, it is the first dollhouse in the Archidoll’s Collection by Tiphaine Verdier Mangan. The perfect gift for girls who love to build and play with small dolls and creatures (ours is currently full of happy Sylvanians!).
Dandy Star’s Magic light box diffuses a soft glowing light that’s perfect for bedside reading or a beautiful way to keep the dark at bay in a kids room. A great item to add to the Christmas gift list (yes, already November! )…
Creme Anglaise is famous for their wooden furniture like the Luna Crib and the decorative Guitar Cushions. The brand just started offering bespoke furniture for children’s rooms. Their first commissioned piece is a bed called STAR BED, made for a Corsican family and their newborn baby Anna-Maria.
Trend gurus predict our future lives will become more and more nomad, visionnaire brands create objects that can follow us everywhere and voila, even children can get acquainted to the idea of being constantly mobile with The Caravan Bed and The Tent Bed by Belgian brand Mathy By Bols, available at BoboKids in London.
In Creative Family Home, Ashlyn Gibson explores the heart and soul of twelve specially photographed homes that capture the zeitgeist in family living and celebrate the magic of childhood. Whether you have just started a family or have a tribe of pre-teens, the book explores both practical and decorative angles. Discussion with the author and peek into this beautiful book.
