Design Inspiration: For Children


Above: Shelter of Nostalgia designed by Worapong Manupipatpong.

Looking for a job to do this weekend? If you are handy with a bag of tools why not try building a hideaway for your child. Take inspiration from this pine indoor tree house built around a column. Not many people have this kind of support in their home, if you fall into this category try freestyle with pine instead, it will looks just as good.


Alternatively, construct a teepee structure and cover it with foliage to provide shelter. Both will take a bit of effort to construct safely, but your children will make memories that will last a lifetime.

Preen: Mini Preen


If your child’s bedroom reflects your taste why not adopt the same policy with their clothes.  We love the ‘Mini Preen’ range by Preen – a childrenswear collection that enables you to buy the same outfit as your child. Make the most of the opportunity to dictate what they wear, as before long they will discover their own identity.

Use this poster designed by Sebastian Schneider as craft inspiration for children. Start a cardboard city, your own unique mini installation in a corner of a room.

All you need is a cardboard, masking tape, scissors and colour paper to highlight.


Children: Indoor Playhouse by Luona


You have your home exactly how you like it, and then the children arrive. Quickly, you come to terms with the fact that baby paraphernalia can be overwhelming. Where you afforded time on the cushion to match the sofa your thoughts will now focus on accommodating the alien products. A family home does not have to be littered with unsightly toys, buy carefully. Those who are parents know that a box can excite a child more than the contents. Enter the plywood Indoor Playhouse by Finnish company Luona, this minimal design is pleasing on the eye and would tick all the right boxes for the design conscious parent.
