Happy Plates

Based in Norway, Ida Skivenes has spent well over a year putting smiles on a lot of faces, by turning everyday breakfasts into beautiful art pieces. Every morning she creates worlds where jam toast foxes hang out next to kiwi fruit trees, and strawberry winged birds settle on branches laden with pomegranate. The idea began from Ida's strong belief that food should be fun, tasty and for the most part healthy. We definitely recommend having a look at more of Ida's plates of joy, on her instagram and blog Ida Frosk. Its the perfect way to bring a smile to breakfast.

Bunking Down

I don't think I've ever met a child who didn't get excited at the idea of getting bunks. Whether it’s because they can climb up high and touch the roof, or snuggle in the cubby-like bottom bunk, they have a novelty that regular beds just don't have. We have put together a little spread on some of our favoutite bunks that are on the market at the moment. Click through to see more details...

Who Am I

In this sweet little series of photos for Nido Magazine, Sarah Illenberger creates a world where children donned in paper cone hats become the Apollo, or wrapped in cotton wool become a soft cloud. Sarah works as a renowned illustrator and designer in many forms, creating engaging and often humerous stories that draw the viewer into the image. Sarah mostly works alone, but occasionaly teams up with a photographer as she has with Silke Weinsheimer for this series of images.
