My favorite online magazine Papier Maché has just released a Déco supplement of Children's rooms and it has been illustrated by the talented Laura Callaghan.
The contributors are designers like Apolline à Paris, Morghan from Little Circus, Allison at Larkmark, Famille Summerbelle (well Ophelia's bedroom) and many more.
You can download it from their website Papier Maché for just $3.
At the end of the PDF mag you have a long list of the best online kids shops selected by the team of Papier Maché and sorted by categories:Walls, Deco, Furniture, Unique...It's worth every penny!
That's the name of a new free online magazine for kids that comes twice a year and created by talented people from Sydney. I wish it would be out more often as it's a pleasure to read and to look at. Beautiful illustrations and photos of interiors. The best of children's fashion and accessories and you get lots of great shop addresses from all over the World. Click here to read it.
Today was like Christmas again. A big parcel from Japan arrived at the door. I love it! I always get very excited when a parcel arrives, but even more when it's from Japan. It was our order of books from our favorite shop in Tokyo:Gallerie Doux Dimanche.
It's also a small publishing company called Paumes owned by Fumie and her husband who is a photographer and took all the photos for their books.
'Edition PAUMES is a small and dynamic family run Japanese publishers, working in close contact with artists and designers in Europe on different editorial projects. With a poetic and original approach, édition PAUMES explores the environments of those who stimulate the creative industries, and in doing has produced a set creative "bibles" that overflow with inspiration'.
We had the chance to meet Fumie while we were in Tokyo last October. She introduced us to her fabulous shop and to her book collection. Galllerie Doux Dimanche is now our first retailer in Japan selling our Family Trees and we are now the proud retailer of their books on Children's rooms.
If you are an interior lover and are looking for ideas to decorate your child's bedroom, then you will love these books.
The ones we have selected feature well-styled, creative and original bedrooms from real people living in different cities. Each room is unique with a personal touch (hand made toys, paintings, blankets...). At the end of each book you get a City guide of the best shops for kids and the best children's books.
The books are written in Japanese but it's really not a problem as there are so many beautiful images to look at for hours.
If you'd like to get your hands on one of these books, then you will be able to see and purchase ('Children's Rooms London', 'Children's rooms Paris' and 'Children's rooms Stockholm') exclusively (in the UK) at Kids Modern show in Dulwich London on Sunday 15th February.
I was very excited to discover 3 little children's books at my mums house. They belong to my uncle Filipandre who probably started his life long passion for illustration drawing in these books. I love the colours and the quirky characters.
