I’m a proud new Auntie! Twice over, in fact – and not even from twins. Both of my sisters had babies in the past week. Little Molly was born on the 20th and my nephew Charlie came a week later on the 27th. I am so excited. In honour of their arrival, I wanted to dedicate the next few posts to kids related stuff.
Here’s a start with some gorgeous looking nurseries and kids rooms.

I’m drawn to grey walls for kids rooms. Here’s another example of how it can really work in a darker shade. Photo care of Bloesem Kids.
For slightly older kids, here are some inspiring designs

I love the BDDW rug featured below. This room is a great example of how to add some sophistication to a space for kids. Beautiful. The photo is from book Brooklyn Modern and was taken by photographer Yoko Inoue

Now that we’ve narrowed down our fixture selection, we need to design a kitchen to house one of these lovely faucets.
I have more clippings for the kitchen than any other room, yet I still continue to search. We’re going to have a predominantly white space, but adding all the little details to make it unique will be the real challenge.
I’m sure I’ll post many more images along the way, but here are some initial shots to grab your attention:
Above: I think Bulthaup makes the most beautiful and carefully thought out contemporary spaces. They have a modern, clean aesthetic, but still feel warm. Their kitchens also seem very practical. A nice mix all around.
Here are a few more spaces that are far from expected
