INTERIOR | Bright n' Light

We are having a typical rainy and slightly cold winters day here in Melbourne so it's easy to dream away and planning when looking at these bright and light kids spaces.

Moments | A Slice of Sunday












M wears: Sweatshirt by Bobo Choses / Pants by H&M / Longsleeve by Soft Gallery / Shoes by Hummel.
D wears:
Fleece by Bobo Choses / Dehli denim by I Dig Denim / Shoes by Converse.

Along the coast there are so many lovely stops you can make and simply get out of the car and get straight into the arms of nature. On the weekend D wanted to get out and try out one of his new birthday presents, the bee bee blaster. We figured we needed some space so we opted for a little secluded beach in the Parkdale area. There is a long, lush walking path that takes you down to the beach and it is simply the best spot for a Sunday walk. The path is surrounded by succulent plants and beautiful views. I can't think of a better way to round off a busy Sunday.

Moments | Winter Blues









D wears: Hoodie by Mini & Maximus / Vest by Zara Kids / Pants by Mini & Maximus / Shoes by Converse.

We've got the winter blues, but not of the sad kind. More of the cold kind. I know the chill here is nowhere near the Northern European one, but it has been colder than normal this past week and some suburbs have even has a bit of snow! During the break we also did a quick trip to Canberra and guess if I was surprised when I looked down from the plane and saw snow covered mountains, not exactly what you expect in Australia. There is plenty of snow here that is for sure.

But for now we are find with some thick jackets or vests on our daily scooter trips. And let me tell you, there have been lots of those lately with D getting a new birthday scooter. I thought it would take a few weeks for him to adjust to a two wheel scooter from having a three wheel one, but as usual he surprises me and gets the swing of it really quickly.

Here are a few photos from a quick trip to a warm cafe and the chance to warm up before picking up big sister at school. Hope you are all managing to stay warm out there, (or cool if you are in Europe ;)

Moments | Let's Draw!

 
M wears: Jacket by molo / Hoodie by Bobo Choses / Tee by Mini & Maximus / Skirt by molo / Leggings by Seed / Sandals by Vivo Barefoot. D wears: Parka by The Brand / Shirt by Mini & Maximus / Dehli denims by I Dig Denim / Shoes by Vans.

We had a few rainy days during the school holidays and on one particular one we decided to head for the city and explore the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) and their kids program Pastello - Draw Act. As part of the NGV commitment to design and children’s programming, Italian design duo Erika Zorzi and Matteo Sangalli of Mathery Studio have designed a new immersive kids space that broadens our appreciation of the simple act of drawing.

Pastello – Draw Act re-imagines traditional drawing tools and processes. Children are invited to use their bodies to draw with their heads, feet and of course hands using crayon spheres and other unusual tools. We love taking the kids to the art gallery and a few friends of ours had already visited the kids space and recommended a visit. It was fun seeing the kids exploring new ways of drawing, and unconventional ways of doing so as well. D was puzzled to say the least when he put on a crayon helmet and started drawing with his head. There were also crayon foot wear that you could put on your shoes and draw on the wall.

Best was all the massive crayons in all different shapes and sizes that all were easy to explore and draw with. It was easy to feel like a big kid yourself and go wild with the paper and crayon.

After a few hours of drawing and exploring the gallery everybody was exhausted from the input and after a lunch in the city we finally headed towards the train station and back home, tired but full of new impressions and experiences.

Art | Munsterkids Collab


If there is a brand that some how personifies the little urban legends out there then it has to be Australian Munsterkids. When we moved Down Under it was one of the brands that quickly caught my attention and I loved their graphic styles, and more importantly so did the boys. Since then munsterkids have added both missie (the girl line) and mini & lilmissie (for the little ones). We have numerous of munster threads in both my boys and my girls wardrobe and when I got a chance to illustrate for the label last year it was a bit of a dream come true. Fast forward a few months and the result is almost out in stores. Here are a few of the illustrations that will soon be available at several retailers and in munsterkids own webshop. Needless to say it was a pure joy to be apart of their cool collection, and gladly something I would do again.

munsterkids SS14 + FW14 'Backyard Warriors' will be out in August. Check out some of the behind the scenes shots I took while visiting the shoot, back in February on their facebook page, or visit www.munsterkids.com for all info on retailers and about the label. Keep your eyes open for a bigger preview on their latest collection here soon.
