Room for siblings & Rafa-kids beds

Rafa-kids family

Today we are all here - RAFA family. 
Do you know that the name RAFA comes from the first letters of our names?  
Robert - Agata - Frank and Arek. 

We started our brand with the design of 2 beds - F bunk bed and R toddler bed. It was something that we needed for our boys at that time. Two boys who shared a single room. Time flies and the kids grow, right?  In the mean time, our customers also started to ask for a larger bed which could fit under the Rafa bunk bed. We listened. The 200cm long A teen bed was a great new addition to the family. However, the questions about even a larger bed did not stop coming. We listened again. A120 wide bed, which you can fit under the F bunk bed was born - I am afraid it is not the end of this story, as we started to get requests for a bed for parents !!! ….we still don't know which way we will grow...but the customers are right most of the time!   

It is the last post this month as we are taking a Summer break and will be not around until mid - August. Our boys will need to go back to school late August, and then life and work will run as usual. We are truly a family brand and live with the rhythm of our two little monkeys. 
We wish you well and hope for great Summer days.

Today is the official first day of summer for my sons, as it’s the last school day…. we have 6 weeks to go! I’m not that excited as they are, unfortunately, as we can’t take such a long break from work so we will try to find a good way to spend time with our boys and work in-between. It is always a challenge! The days are lighter and warmer, so spending time with our two active boys is much easier as we can plan different activities outside. Slow mornings are definitely my favorite with no school rush. …anyway, today I’m showing you sunny photo session created for Zara by April and May. I really like the simplicity of it. It shows that you don’t need many accessories to create beautiful pictures with a summer feeling. Let’s take this idea into our summer days.

Monday inspiration - Grey & Yellow in children’s rooms

Here we go - from yellow accents in children's rooms into the entire wall painted in this color.  I particularly like the combination of Yellow with Grey, as they balance each other so well. Rooms with different shades of grey are most of the time calm and sophisticated, but a touch of yellow brings the interior to life in mine opinion. You could paint one furniture in yellow to create an eye catcher in the room or use just little accessories like lamps, pillows, blankets or bedding. Painting an entire wall in yellow is a big step, probably better for play corner than for sleeping.  
A yellow accent here and there is definitely in Rafa-kids style.  
Happy Yellow new week!
