Playtime!

With so many great ideas for children’s play areas and cubby houses around, I thought I would share some of my favourite finds with you all.

There is something about tree houses that is just so cool! I always wanted a tree house and think they would be such a great hideout for kids. They are iconic in kids movies, a real “kids only” domain that allows the children to feel like they have their own special space. Tepees are also a brilliant option because they can be disassembled and moved with ease, even brought indoors, if you do not have yard space or if the weather turns bad.

Space is a huge issue today in many homes so here are a couple creative ideas that take up minimal space, but are maximum fun for a kid! A simple blackboard mounted on a wall will provide children with endless hours of fun, and encourage their artistic side. Turning your dining table into a cubby by using an adapted tablecloth would work in any home or, my absolute favourite, create a rock climbing wall! How fun is that?! I can just picture myself jostling with the kids to get a turn ;)

Have a great weekend everyone and remember, all work and no play…

Designer Mama

The Polish designer behind the amazing Test Tube Chandelier, Pani Jurek, has just released her newest creation. Delicate and whimsical, Designer Mama is an embroidered tablecloth with a difference.

Once in place, the tablecloth transforms the space under the table into an embroidered room furnished with a selection of modern designer items. The George Nelson clock, the Eames storage unit, Thorsten Van Elton antler rack, the list continues. Fancy no?! What a way to encourage imaginative play (and instill good taste and appreciation of designer goods!)

But what about the flip side of the table-cloth? Well she has thought of this too, and made all the knots into tiny rosettes surrounded by stitches, simple and pretty!

It isn’t often you find a homeware that caters for all ages!
