It's time for a change.



I’m moving! 
Yes, after 7 years of blogging over here I found my new spot on Rafa-kids New Website.


You can find the New RAFA-kids blog over HERE
https://www.rafa-kids.com/blog/


It was not an easy decision, as I can't take with me all the posts I have created during these years. If I look back at the work and passion I put into it I think it would be great to print a book about children design world out of it. 

I will unpack my things and create a new cozy and fresh place over Rafa-kids websiteYou can expect to see there few of your favorite blog posts, so you can still feel familiar.  It's somehow a new start to me.  I will do all my best to continiue this creative and inspiring Blog as it's matter so much to me. 
Are you joining the Journey ? 

let's start NEW journey.

This week our kids have a little winter break from school. 
We're excited to welcome cold days and the natural ice on the Rotterdam's canals! 
I think we'll put on skates very soon....

For the cozy evenings, I have some beautiful treat for your eyes. I think it doesn’t happen that often that stylist/photographer which mostly works with interior design sets, is interested in kids interiors.  What a shame! 
You probably already know that I’m a fan of Paulina Arcklin work and adore her style.  Today I share with you few of her great ideas for kids rooms from her Kidsnapit concept. We are also very proud to see our Rafa-kids bench in her styling. 


What's good ends quickly sometimes ..so don't wait too long if you would like to have it!

Today I would like to talk about a small furniture which deserved a bit of a shoutout. 
What do you think about a bench in your home?  

In many cases, we don’t even notice them around if we look at interiors. I have a filling that a bench is mostly used in a hallway to sit and put your shoes on, to put the necessary accessories, or hide shoe collection under it. There are so many other ways to use a bench around our home. I love the picture with the bench in a living room next to the white sofa. Perfect to put your cup of tea or coffee and book you are currently reading. Benches are most of the time long and sleek, which makes them so easy to fit in many different rooms. What about putting it next to the wall?  Then you can use your creativity and create wall art or green corner with flowers, put your favorite magazines, the longer the bench, the more possibilities. It doesn’t matter if you have a small or large space, it is such a smart furniture which can give a personal touch to a room. I hope you like the ideas and appreciate this little object even more!

Dream house in old factory

Adaptation of a factory for a studio and house
Adaptation of a factory for a studio and house

I hope you’re doing well and started a New 2018 with a good spirit. 
It’s been a while since I posted and talked to you. 
I wanted to start this year by showing you an interior crash. Why? We have been looking for a new house for more than a year, and I hope this is GOING TO BE THE YEAR we will find it. If you believe in something it just needs to happen, right? 
I really like the house you see in the pictures.  Created by German photographer Petra Reger who runs her studio Wertvoll Fotografie from a converted factory in Southern Germany. You can read a little interview with her here: and also snap much more pictures at Stylejuicer blog. It is one of my favorite blogs if I look for inspiration and need a bit of a WOW feeling.

Room for siblings with F&A bed set

Rafa-kids F&A bed set

Did you like our Autumn session with Rafa-kids A teen bed? We are coming back to you with even more inspiration in a similar atmosphere. For the first time, we've set our Rafa-kids F&A bed set in two different wood fishes. I think they look stunning and even more playful than the beds in the same tone. This way you can create a separate atmosphere on the upper and lower bed. 

If one child has the F&A bed set, the lower A teen bed can be used for lying, sitting or chilling out during the day and the upper part is only for sleeping, ( you don’t need to make the bed each day then!) and of course, it can be used for sleepovers. Many of our customers ask what is the difference between the whitewash and natural wood finish. I hope you can see on the pictures, that the whitewash has a warm tone but the wooden structure is hardly visible, and the wood fish has a structure of wood more present. You can see it so well on the last picture with Rafa-kids BB bench 120cm

Rafa-kids also collected plenty of beautiful new accessories. Please welcome the cutest ever Mini Birdie from LuckyBoySunday, playful Felt Balls, and new Nomad Cushions. I also found this lovely Corona wool blanket which is so light and warm at the same time.  We are also a bit obsessed at Rafa-kids with the mustard color at the moment, and that’s why we have now in our collection this beautiful Mustard Bedding set. Last but not least, our storage is filled with plenty of new felt baskets….in White, Soft Pink and Yellow!  We like winter season with a bit of bright and colorful touch.

Custom designed kid’s room in Australia

Some time ago I showed you this very nice: Custom designed room, and it’s looking like you've liked it!  Today I have another great example how to create modern kid's room. When Angelika and Andreas Zenkl moved to Sydney’s Paddington they asked a designer, Angy Ertel of Ertel Design to create a playful and functional space for their daughters, Aimee and Camille.  

It was tricky to fit in a bunk bed, desk and lots storage but still leave space for play”.  Aimee and Camille’s room was designed with storage in mind, with its mix of open and closed shelving. Large toy drawers under the shelving units and bench seat…  “Since it’s a quite a small space, I wanted everything to connect” says Any. Books and toys are displayed on open shelving, with a gap below and section to allow it to be used as an extra desk. Angy about the design of the bunk bed:  “ I designed it with flexibility in mind so that if the girls don’t want to share further down the track, the top bunk can be removed and the room will still look great. A drawer under the bed holds a mattress for sleepovers.“   
Do you like this compact and elegant space? 
It’s a great example that even when we don’t have plenty of space, with good ideas we can create a unique room for our kids. Well done!
