Rachel Powell is a surface pattern and wallpaper designer. You might have seen some of the prints and wallpapers by her before, but it was this screenprint above that really caught my eye .. i love the simplicity and the paperbag background color ... the fabrics are available by the meter and with just a little bit of imagination you will be able to transform your home or even just a few pieces within your space.
Her prints are playful and give a general sense of happiness. Definitely something you would love to see the moment you step through the door after a long day at work.
The cheerful nature of Rachel Powell's creations have found it's way into my heart and hopefully your homes as well :)

I never expected a guy (sorry!) to be the founder of this bright, bold and hapy label but it is and Mark McConnell has done an great job creating YOKE. I like the witty way of his designs like the rabbit head with the carrot between the floppy ears.
Nice way to start the week here on BKids ... you agree?

Feeling lucky today .... (and so is the Luckyboysunday rabbit to live in such a beaultiful room) ... to be able to share with you some impressions of a gorgeous apartment in Antwerp. My friend and long-time contributor to BKids .... Véronique from Pichouline lives here, well when she is not in Africa that is, decorated this apartment and these nice rooms for her three daughters.
Truly a lady with style who knows how to combine things. Isn't the tipi not just awesome? The pink pockets on the wall are perfect to display smaller items. Confetti garlands , paper pompoms are such simple and affordable ideas to make a room happy and fun for kids.
Enjoy the inspiration today! And if you have a question about a specific item you see in the picture just leave us a comment!

- Irene and Rik -
Not only were Rik and I celebrating Father's Day yesterday we also drank champagne wearing our Bronze Medals .... yes 12,5 years happily married to the Love of my Life!
Fun to see these alphabet-frames by Chiaozza this morning ... how matching!
I believe these frames are so decorative for a kids room. You can order your letter and Chiaozza custom-design and make them for you.

I feel truly blessed with all the personal messages, emails, comments and tweets you have send my way over the last couple of weeks. I will be honest with you going back to work on Monday wasn't easy ... after loosing a family member this close the sadness makes you want to stay in bed all day, not up to facing the normal world again ... but I made it and now I am very glad to back here in the bloggersworld with all of you ... I have to say a special Thank you to these lovely ladies who helped me and BKids through these difficult times by offering us their guest posts... Esther @Babyccino, Joy @OhJoy, Erin @designforminiKind, Jantine @aprilandmaymini, and Yvonne @Yvestown ...
I wanted to end this week on Bkids with some kidsroom decor inspiration. Sufiya stumbled upon this post by Ursula of Room to Bloom where she shares lovely interior ideas for kids. Alfie is one happy toddler. His room is such a great space for a growing mind thanks to mum Sara.
