Momma Mia! Modern Kid's Rooms

In the search for modern kids interior ideas, these great room ideas from GAB were found.   And my offspring who generally opposes modern design (since mom likes it), loves them!  
They have some great space saving interior ideas and take kids play in to consideration. Alas, Made in Italy - Momma mia! 

visit the GAB website to view the gallery www.gab.it/prodotti/collezioni_en.html



A week away!

San Diego
15 - 20 collectors selling modern art, furniture and other items. Corner of Kettner Blvd & W. Kalmia St.
Great section in Little Italy where quite a few mid-century shops have popped up. 


Good time

These bamboo clocks by Decoylab  remind me of the playful clocks George Nelson created which became modern icons. The owl and elephant have a great modern feel

Pillow Talk...

The hand silk screened pillow case designs by Hola Amiga feature art by Nate Williams.  His illustrations and patterns are almost childlike and could be mistaken for vintage, but yet perfectly modern. These are "lines", "space shapes", & "petri dish".

Honey, I shrunk the Eames!

The mini-e is a child size replica of the classic Eames lounge chair created by Ray and Charles Eames in 1956. An icon of mid-century design recreated in a child's size by Little Nest, an Australian furniture company.
Sort of makes me wish I was a kid again! or maybe just shorter........

Herb In

Egg planters by J. Schatz. I can see these  hanging in multiples  at varying heights to create a herb garden for the MCM or contemporary home.
Also a great house warming gift idea with  a succulent plant.

Heath + Ferry

The Heath Marketplace at the San Francisco Ferry Building has opened! Smart folks even rescheduled  their Sausalito tours around the ferry schedule leaving San Fran for Sausalito. Great day trip to hit 2 beautiful NorCal cities and enjoy the amazing wares they offer.
If you have read my earlier post regarding seconds you will be excited to know they will stock some seconds at the new Sausalito location as well.
