My design esthetic has always been vintage eclectic glam with a touch of modern. However, just as your taste buds change over the years, the older I get my design esthetic is changing. Don't get me wrong, I still love glitz & glam, vintage baubles but I have been drawn to simple, modern, graphic pops, statement pieces and honestly becoming more of a minimalist.
It might be because I have a 3 year old who makes more of mess now then she ever has and I can't handle the mess anymore.
It also might be because I'm drawn to how others live in other parts of the world. Europe, UK, & Australian lifestyle is different. In America it is all about having the dream house, cars, money. The land of the free! In other parts of the world it's about spending time with your family, enjoying life, where you live, traveling the world. They live simple, their homes are a tad smaller than what we are a custom to living. They do have three or four people living in a one bedroom flat. Yet, they make the most of the square footage, resulting in it looking & feeling bigger than it is. I love how you will see the black and white color blocking throughout a home, graphic pops in the kitchen, living room, & bedroom. Kids design made for adults.
Which brings me to what my post is really about today. Haha!

Have you heard of a shop called Little Studio? Well you should check out their website. They have fun playful designs for your home.
Designers, Marit Lissdaniel and Angelica Utterberg wanted their designs to fit children & adults. The two loved how children have the ability to see things for more than they really are. For example, a triangle could be a triangle- but it could also be a mountain. They try to avoid the traditional gender roles so their designs apply to everyone.
The best part about their shop for us in the US, they ship WORLD WIDE!!!
