If the idea of a 50-foot climbing wall in your living room makes you nervous, wait until you see the 80-foot indoor side that gets you down!
This loft bed by Studio Oink packs sleeping, dressing, play, and storage into a single, self-contained unit. Impressive, no doubt, but what really sets it apart are the secret features, like a hidden staircase to the loft with a door that’s lockable from the inside and a secret hideaway with a trap door and secret passage. Of course, everything’s better with a friend, so the designers included a pull-out trundle bed for sleepovers.

You can always find a stray balloon or two in our house that has made its way up to the ceiling, just out of reach. Every time we get them down, our kids just can’t seem to resist letting the balloon go again to watch it float away.
Designer Boris Klimek has taken the iconic childhood fixture a step further with Memory, a modern collection of ceiling and wall lights masquerading as colorful glass balloons. The hanging cord is used to turning the lights on and off. Ingenious!
The lights are available in a variety os sizes and colors starting from $200 at Mood.
Oh, where has summer gone? Can you believe we’re getting ready for school already? Actually, many kids have already started school on the West Coast, which means it’s a perfect time to talk about room decor and, more precisely, kids’ desk spaces.

From a small desk in the corner of the room to a custom-made bed/storage/desk unit to a simple wooden plank secured on both sides of a narrow wall, it’s easy to find an option for any room’s configuration.
I get excited whenever I come across something as beautiful as these vintage sewing card albums. One of Frederich Froebel’s 20 educational toys (or gifts, as they were known), these sewing cards were made in 1902 by a certain Henry Childress. I can just imagine him concentrating on the colorful snowflake patterns, can’t you?
Simple handmade toys and crafts like this seem to belong to a bygone age. I guess that’s half their appeal. However, sewing, knitting, and weaving are enjoying a comeback, as we all know. More and more children’s designers are looking to traditional crafts to give their products an original, modern twist. Reviving folk art can be just as inspiring as Henry’s sewing cards…
