I’ve got colour on my mind. Today I’m dreaming of GREEN.

Black Trim Windows

I never seem to tire of this look…

We painted our windows black in my own house and absolutely love it! My unapologetic attempt of pretending I live in a loft!

House Tour: Fredensborg House by NORM Architects

I absolutely love the work of Copenhagen based NORM Architects. I’d seen photos from their Fredensborg house before, but this month’s Living Etc. features more extensive and “lived in” shots.

Who said sleek contemporary can’t be kid friendly? Well, at least they’ve done a good job at convincing me I can have it all!

Kids Rooms: Beds

I went back and forth when trying to decide what type of bed to get our daughter. We ended up opting for a double – which seemed seriously extravagant at the time, but I admit I’m so happy we did. I love getting to lie with her at night before she goes to bed. I still haven’t decided what type of headboard to make, but that will come. Whether you go this route or choose a toddler bed or even something built-in, there are so many options for kids rooms. Maybe too many!

Below: Bed featured in Rum Magazine. This piece would work just as well in my room as it would in my daughter’s. I love the nook for books.

Below: Ubabub’s Nifty bed is another option designed for kids, but suited for any room. The Australian company markets their products as being ultra-safe, durable, and eco-friendly. Their products aren’t yet available internationally, but it sounds like they might be soon.

Below: Italian company Nume makes beautiful and unique products for kids. I’ve featured their toddler bed before, but here it is again along with a seriously fun canopy.

Below: You really can’t go wrong with Ikea for a kids room. The Malm bed does the trick quite nicely – it’s modern, simple, and the price is definitely right.

While I would choose straight lines for a headboard for my room, I’m likely going to add some detail for my daughter’s room. Here are some bits of inspiration:
