graphic inspiration

Drawings are always a great source of inspiration! 

This lovely graphic illustration is from Hanna konola.
Hanna is an illustrator, designer & artist born in Finland
and has an online shop were you can see more of her work.




We believe kids can be stylish and wear comfortable clothes at the same time.
OMAMImini thought exactly the same!

They have even thought of the parents and of course the kids, the clothes are easy to put on 
and easy to take off, and require very low maintenance.
We really love this collection especially the grey and white tones. 

Take a look at the complete collection here


Aventuur junior bed by Buisjes & Beugels



Kellie Smits, designer and founder of the great webshop Buisjes & Beugels
has launched a new range of products to her collection including this junior bed.

The Aventuur junior bed is inspired on the vintage seventies kids beds,
a modern simplification and easy to assembly.

This bed is available in three colors pink/naturel, green/naturel and yellow/bordeaux.
A great new addition to the existing collection of Kellie Smits and as always
with great details, use of color, shape and material. 
We thinks this bed makes each room more fun!

Nijntje & ixxi



We all love this Nijntje/Miffy character from Dick Bruna.
I especially remember the nice stories and the fun things Nijntje/Miffy all experienced.  

Ixxi is a wall system that works really simple, with torque crosses and cards you can
make every wall design you want in every size.

Ixxi and Nijntje/Miffy joined forces and made these educational and pretty templates. You can make your own wall combination with the different images from the IXXI collection or choose a specific design. 

What a great collection and we already know this will bring joy in many kids rooms.

kids room inspiration



A children's room should always be a good spot to play.
But it's nice to see that you can combine a stylish kids room that is also 
a comfortable place.

Sara Woodrow from the blog smäm is a designer, artist and illustrator.
On her blog, she writes mostly about things that inspires her.
She also have a lovely shop where you can buy this amazing poster (see picture above)

I am totally in love with this poster.
Wouldn't this be great in any kids room?
I am considering buying them for my two little boys,
it would be so great in their room or anywhere else at home.

Holiday gift guide


With holidays coming we have made a selection of gifts with the themes 
Kids, Black and White and Wood.

We share our favorite products at Luvocracy where you can luv us 
and find your favorite products curated by us. 

Take a look at our kids section here and find the perfect gift for holidays!




These months are filled with presents and as it is also my boys birthday
 in December my mind is on gift  mode.
Never could have imagined how busy these months are when you also have
 to celebrate your kids birthday and have to select and divide the presents.

 The outside of a gift is almost just as important as the inside.
It makes you curious and it's even more festive.

So if you want to get ready for the holidays/birthdays or special days
you should definitely take a look at Dreamkey.

Dreamkey has lots of choice between: paper stuff, DIY, gift wrapping, cards.
They offer a lot of different things and many beautiful items.

We think the outside of a gift is almost just as important as the inside.
It makes you curious and its even more festive.



Wool blankets


We have to admit that we are huge fans of Rafa Kids from the beginning they started. 
Their designs are amazing and we are so glad there are people and brands 
like Rafa Kids that are creating such beautiful, simple and timeless pieces.

And now they have added these wonderful wool blankets to the collection. 
They loved it so much that they couldn't resist adding it to their collection. 

Well and we couldn't agree more. 
The graphics are great and fit everywhere, not only in a kids room
 but how beautiful would it look on your sofa…
Well take it everywhere you want and get warm and cozy.

The perfect blanket for these colder days…don't you think?

printable dominoes


We found this printable dominoes on the blog of Handmade Charlotte.

With the rainy fall weather that is coming I always find it nice to spot 
some great DIY to do with my little boy.

And how fun are these? 
First you can download the template and print them al out,
use some heavy paper so they have some more weight.
Then you can cut them out on the thin lines. 
It is simple to do and it looks awesome.

You can find the template here
