Chloe Fleury is a prop stylist and illustrator and the paper things this lady can make is just mind-blowing! The amount of detail and precision.. and how it differs from our own paper art with glue everywhere by the end of the crafting session.. She's worked with some of the biggest brands and now we can try our hand at making our own paper bunnies.

The Make History family has officially welcomed a new member .. The Growth Chart! We've already seen the Growth Chart making it's way round the world of instagram, popping up on our feed several times in a day.. but we would like to officially introduce it to you!
The Growth Chart is so close to Bloesem because we've seen our favourite product designer, marketing specialist and all round favourite person, Anouk van der El, working hard on it for awhile now and we were also honored to do the styling and photography for the Growth Chart.
We're sure you are already too familiar with the Time Capsules and the Little Quote Jar, both great products that fly off the shelf in the Bloesem shop.. We've just stocked the shop with Growth Charts and we're already running low. It's a great design and functional piece that both parents and children can enjoy. We've seen so many growth charts with overly childish designs that do not go with the room decor (you know the ones) but this one is just the right amount of playful and cool.
So go ahead and add this cool graphic Growth Chart to your child's room .. mark their growth and take it with you when you move.. it comes flatpacked and can be kept as a nice momento once the little ones have outgrown the chart.
We've placed one up on the wall in the Bloesem shop and it's lovely to see that kids are naturally drawn to it asking their parents to tell them how tall they are.. their favourite part is when we mark down their height and write their name beside it .. so wonderful to see their little faces light up!
The Growth Chart is a collaboration between Anouk van der El of Make History and blogger Erin Loechner (she writes Design for Mankind ) .. having met for the first time in Singapore while Erin was here to teach here Bloesem Classes on social media and blogging. Great to see Bloesem Class connecting creatives from all over the world.
Start 2015 with the Growth Chart and create memories by tracking your child's growth.. I always remember marking my height as a child as a very exciting time!

From the amazing talents Tove Johansson, her latest print collection ' Jungle ' already found in a fan in Bloesem. In collaboration with photographer Caroline Gomez who we have already adored for awhile now ( we stock her travel guide books in the Bloesem store) the new collection looks amazing! And so does her other projects.. pattern is definitely her forte.

By now you would have found out that we are quite the fan of prints for kids. Beau LOves has a beautifully whimsical quality about their prints, at the same time being incredibly stylish.

We love colour when it comes to kids wear. It's fun, it's cheery. It brightens up the dark cold times of winter. Indikidual AW 14 collection features alot of warm pull overs, leggings and pants that come in all sorts of bright colours and funky prints! I've got to say the banana print bloomers actually caught my attention first, how could they have not.

Luxurious yet laid back, beautiful yet practical... that's the essence of the clothes collection by Caramel Baby & Child. We immediately fell in love with their choice of colour palette and occasional quirkiness in their designs. Their attention to detail can be seen throughout their collection, like this classic baby coat made from exquisite cloths and nostalgic knits with a distinctive Peter Pan collar. The next time you think that children's clothes can't be beautiful and tough-wearing at the same time, think twice!
