room for kids : found in copenhagen

posted on: Thursday, September 30, 2010

An eclectic gathering of plush creatures watch over four-year-old Silke's room.

Her favourite thing? "The wooden doll house which came with the furniture and dolls. So many happy hours of playing," revealed mum, Hanne. "Amazing!"

Vintage Scandinavian. Architect and graphic design duo, Hanne and Tobias of What We Do applied their love of flea-market-finds to shape their daughter's playful room.

room for baby : tangerine dream

posted on: Wednesday, September 29, 2010

"We won't know the sex of our baby until the day of his or her birth" explained dad-to-be, Johann. "So I wanted to create a nursery with a reoccurring theme that was gender-neutral. Since our baby will be born this year, the Chinese Year of the Tiger, I wanted to express this theme in a compelling yet unique way."

Johann designed, printed and framed all the graphics throughout the room, as well as painted the collection of thrifted frames.

Bold, crisp and surprising. Dad-to-be, Johann, is a graphic designer who applied his artistic eye to come up with a truly individual space that is high on sophistication and low on cutesy. Mum-to-be, Jamee, blogs about her pregnancy journey here and (naturally!) loves the space too.

fun stuff : make a crafty house

posted on: Friday, September 24, 2010

Do your kids keep a craft container full of discarded packaging and general domestic debris? Did you? I did. I filled it with bits of odd-sized wrapping paper, fabric, old cardboard rolls, boxes, and evidently -- paper doilies. Or maybe the doilies were new and I snitched them from the kitchen drawer. Looks like I also snitched some aluminium foil. To make a roof. For my house:

one for me please : mini knapsack

One sunny 'at home day' (aka a non-office/daycare day) the Baby Space toddler and I packed a snack and meandered down to our local park. We're a bit in love with our local park. We're also a bit in love with his mini Mooo bag.

No sooner had we settled beside the pond than the giant ducks (or are they geese? Do you have a working knowledge of fowl? Can you clarify?) started to waddle in our direction. The toddler, obviously entranced by their Jemima Puddle-Duck sans clothes style, scurried down to the water to share his snack. I guess they grabbed at that cookie pretty quickly because this is what happened next.

Fresh, nautical and a wee bit dreamy. Mum, Joanna from A Cup of Jo, gathered together images that inspired her and collaborated with Jenny from Little Green Notebook to realise her vision.

fun stuff : indoor playground

posted on: Friday, September 17, 2010

Sometimes all things (weather, location, conspire to make doing your number one fun outdoor activity impossible. But no one tells the wee ones and they continue to whirl like Dervishes despite being confined to small spaces. The solution? Well here at Baby Space we are not opposed to the occasional indoor playground jaunt.

p.s There could be cupcakes.

Have a lovely weekend!

one for me please : draw on the walls

posted on: Thursday, September 16, 2010

Take the taboo out of drawing on the walls with this funky wallpaper by Graham & Brown. Wee ones can draw, paint or paste to their creative heart's content, or you can stick the mini masterpieces they bring home from day care or preschool in the range of odd shaped 'frames'. Wee ones to old for scribbling? Keep the wallpaper as-is for a fun feature wall.

Available to order from Urban Baby, from approx $99.95 AUD or $94 USD.

fun bloggy award

This blog is supposed to be more about spaces and less about me, however Stacey from Design Addict Mom has given me the honour of this 'super comments award'. Too kind! And as part of the honour I've been asked to answer nine questions about myself. Sooo, if you would rather see more cute rooms skip to the next post. Otherwise get comfy. Here's a bit about me.

posted on: Friday, September 10, 2010

Whichever side of the equator you're on, the weather is starting to change. And it's kinda nice to get out there and go for a bushwalk (as we call it down south). If you're stateside I believe you refer to this as hiking, yes?
