While walking Téo to sleep the other morning I passed Imps and Elfs store which is 5mn walk from my home. They have of course the most wonderful clothes for kids, but I just fell in love with the floorboards. I want the same in my home!
...Ophelia and Lucien are off school so we decided to visit The Oasis of Matisse exhibition at the Stedelijk museum. It is only a short bike ride from our home, so they took their pencils and notebooks and off we went.
It is the largest ever retrospective of work by Matisse to be shown in the Netherlands. The ground floor rooms features paintings, drawings and sculptures by Matisse alongside works by Cézanne, Van Gogh, Picasso and others.
The top floor focuses on Matisse's monumental cutouts. The children loved this part best, I guess due to the strong colours and bold shapes that they can relate to.
Families with children can go in the Stedelijk's Family Lab where round tables with lots of colourful papers and scissors are displayed. Ophelia and Lucien were very excited to create cut-outs like Matisse and pin them on the wall!
I'm trying to figure out how I can improve to have a more tidy desk and yet keep all the things I need (pencils, scissors, scalpels, notebooks...) and like to see (postcards, drawings...) in one place.
I like the idea of adding a large pegboard that I would paint in white on the right of my desk. I'll have baskets for all my stationary and clips to hangs photos and drawings. Here's a little inspiration from my Pinterest board.
My desk at the moment.
What do you think? How do you keep your desk tidy and organised?!
