At the moment, New York is having an up/down , love/hate relationship with the weather. Perhaps it's the fact that rain and grey skies have taken over and that summer only comes in small doses. So don't be alarmed by my post of Danefae jackets and winter jumpsuits. Global warming made me do it. Red Rover, Red Rover please send summer over.
Things that I now understand and truly value about my father:
Resene, a New Zealand professional paint company, chose to showcase their latest range of Karen Walker color paints for the home, by using mini- modernist Bauhaus inspired architectural models of homes crafted by Auckland sculptor Gidon Bing and styled by Katie Lock. (via)
H2O Architects had a problem to solve for a client. Their family was expanding but their home could not. With a new baby on the way, they recreated space within space and HERE is what they came up with. Bravo!

My daughter had a school holiday yesterday so we met up with lovely Lynn of Appaman and her cute little mini then headed uptown. I was blown away with the size and structure. Although it seemed more like an indoor playspace than an art exhibit, I was impressed with his use of color, texture, materials and the inviting hands-on appeal. It's up through June 15th and I would highly recommend this one! Click HERE for more information on this current show, Anthropodino. (first two photos are by James Ewing)
RS is based in Spain and put out some pretty dope designs for kids. First up is the Guerrilla Containers - just right for lazy play and easy cleanup. Second is the By Yourshelf Metal bookcase with many colors to choose from. Lastly is the hexagon shaped Beecolour stool.
