Happy Belated New Year Everybody!

Frohes Neues!

Well, I started preparing this post in January and I managed to share it now in March! At least I made it on time for the Iranian new year but I missed the Chinese one by about a month. At least the Arabic one is in September, therefore it is never too late for a happy new year wish!!!

Dear 2018! Welcome! Please be healthy, inspirational and give us some more time during the day, to give life to our dreams and goals!

At my first 2018 post, I would like to share with you some inspirational, beautiful, notable designs that came to my attention, either via internet, by walking around in the city or simply by visiting my doctor :-). So keep your eyes open and be ready for anything; you never know when the idea will come to you!

The Dutch Cabinets

When I first laid eyes on this multifunctional storage solution, I immediately fell in love with it. Designed by Marie-Louise Groot Kormelink for her own children as a storage piece to last all children’s phases, at least from baby to pre-school!

The collection belongs to the Dutch company Kast van een Huis® and consists of two series, the Amsterdam and the Durgerdam. The design of these cabinets was inspired by the unique architecture of 17th century houses around the canals of Amsterdam. They are available at a variety of colours, from pastel to more vivid combinations and their use can be multiple. Either as children’s clothes wardrobes, as small book-shelves for the office, or generally in any possible space that one wants to give a special tone and character.

The Amsterdam series are since 2013 part of the Philadelphia Museum of Arts collection, while in 2010 it unanimously won the prix “Découverte” of the Salon Maison & Objet in Paris.

Epona Rocking Horse

For all these mommies and daddies that after having a baby, saw their space transform to a not so “beautiful” and decorative area. How about replacing your children’s classic rocking horse with an Epona Rocking Horse? Epona was created by Ottawa’s Federal Design House Studio from copper wires, wood and a piece of rabbit fur (perhaps not the most animal-friendly seat cover out there).

Corner Eating Animals

What do you think of this corner protectors for your kids? These cute animal corner protectors from Japan can transform your table to a cute and kids-friendly table. They are available in three variations; brown bear, white cat and green frog, at first by Nitori, the Japanese version of “IKEA” and now so simple on Amazon.

Lohner Carlson – Unique Active Images

Even though I am a fan of handmade art for my own space, I have to admit that I was taken aback when I visited my doctor and saw these framed video/pictures used for wall decoration. Photos that are alive, photos that can talk to you; photos that give life to their space, being incomparably better from an artistic point of view to conventional tv screens decorating similar waiting areas. Imagine a photo that you can see the tree’s branches moved by the wind, clouds that move or small waves in the lake.
