New and Proud Addition to the Store: Majvillan Wallpaper Collection


 

 



 
I remember being a little girl in my room at night, studying the slightly magical wallpaper next to me before falling asleep. Even though the figures and images were always the same, there were new and familiar discoveries every night. The reassurance of being surrounded by my favourite stories told through images was wonderful, and for this reason wallpaper is something that I hold very dear: Everyone should experience that special feeling that the right wallpaper gives when in a room.

For this reason, and for many other reasons, we couldn't be more proud to present this absolutely fantastic wallpaper collection that is being delivered directly from Sweden, bringing its magic, fantasy and bold colours into kids rooms and nurseries everywhere: Majvillan. The print and production is local and eco friendly and the design is young and Scandinavian - what's not to love?

Majvillan was created by talented designer Charlotta Sandberg just earlier this year, and we were lucky enough to meet her in Stockholm earlier this summer and get a first hand introduction to the lovely collection. It seems there's no end to things to look at, and we love the idea of the kids being able to study the wallpapers at any time of the day, sharing the little stories being told by the different characters and objects. And they're many: Dragons, circus bears, castles, clouds & stars, rainbows, owls, fish, cherry trees; there really is no end of possibilities!

Please come have a look and see which one your favourite of the Majvillan wallpapers is.

An Eclectic Missoni Nursery

We couldn't help posting these lovely nursery pictures from expecting Margerita Missoni's Instagram account. The original and eclectic nursery decor choices for her future son are both personal and quite inspiring, and we couldn't not share them. All pictures are hers, and you can find the rest here. What do you think?

Behind the scenes at Flensted

The Flensted factory in Denmark have quite a legacy: Founded in 1956 by Christian Flensted, the company is still family run and they make all their mobiles by hand in the small factory they own outside of Copenhagen. This article appeared in the great publication Monocle a while back, and it is both interesting and inspiring to read about their company and history. It really is Scandinavian design at its best, and we confess we have several of the mobiles hanging around our office - the effect of having a mobile slowly moving in the wind is very relaxing. To have a look at the Flensted mobiles we offer for your nursery or home, please go here.

Back to Kindergarden + School

Summer is starting to round up, and while we are still, very much so, soaking up the sun rays of August and enjoying the relaxation that comes with it, it is an undeniable fact that autumn is just around the corner. This means kindergardens, schools and offices are all getting ready to open their doors back up again, and so we are prepared with our fall selection for the little school days!

Take a peak below and in the store at this year's choices, offering organic cotton, French design and funky prints and illustration, and soft fabrics to make those kindergarden and school days extra fun. The prints on the Coq En Pate bags, in collaboration with MIBO, are all by UK illustrator Madeleine Rogers. Needless to say, we love them!

New in are the drawstring bags, perfect for both gym days and park days, small and big children. Hope you enjoy the selection as much as we do!
