I think I’ve mentioned before what a geography nerd I am. Cause I’m a big one, huge. It always baffles me when someone has absolutely no idea where in the U.S. a state lies. Maybe I need to carry around one of these smart magnetic geography maps from Steven Mattern in my bag, then I can just show them instead of rolling my eyes. (via CMYBacon)Posted In create, kids, wood
These sectional globes that you put together yourself are fantastically abstract in shape, I’d love to hang one from the ceiling in the corner of my living room. (Psst… you can even color them to your liking!) (via Design For Mankind)Posted In accessories, house and home, kids, paper goods
Unlike half of the people I know, I am not with child. (Whew.) But I am in love with type, and half tempted to buy one of these typography teether toys from the lovely Amy of Little Alouette to use as decor now and (possibly) kiddie entertainment later.

Lately I’ve been noticing a trend in the design of play spaces. Namely that not all of them are horrendously designed. Some even seem as though they might mesh with the design of your own home, instead of standing in the corner like a large plastic monolith.
First up, Brinca Dada’s Emerson House. The modern dollhouse has tons of features including mitered-glass corners, two fireplaces, sliding glass doors, solar panels, and recessed LED lights. It’s also constructed using only non-toxic and lead-free wood stains and paints. A lesson in design appreciation paired with environmental responsibility. Who couldn’t get behind that?
Next are Modern Playhouse’s Wedge House and Circle House. Designed by Gitane Royce and Nisreen Witt using no flimsy parts or garish colors. Just a sustainable playhouse made from locally-sourced and recycled materials and a blank palette for the imagination.
Lastly, this pop-up playhouse called My Space designed by Liya Mairson. Perfect for small spaces with little square footage or storage, this bad boy actually folds up flat.
PS: Also check out Dave Keune’s Nina’s House – crib, playpen, storage, drawers, and changing table. An all-in-one piece with a sleek white modern look.Posted In grand design, kids, trends
