Welcome Into Lula’s Dreamland!

lula_dreamland_5

Hello!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know what Lula’s nursery used to look like. A bunnyland with a mint, blush and grey color palette.

Lula is now almost 2 years old (21 months to be exact, already?!!) and I’ve been rearranging her bedroom for the last couple months. She is a big girl now who loves colors, animals, playing with her dolls, dancing, cooking, hiding in her teepee, reading stories… A girl full of energy and adventurous. She started climbing her bed a couple months ago, until she fell out one morning! I never thought this moment would arrive so fast! Most of my friends kids are still in their crib until 2 and half-3 years old. So we first removed the front panel from her crib while I was looking for a toddler bed.

I have been following the work of Kalon Studios for some time and I was obsessed with their beautiful caravan divan. So Lula climbing out her crib actually gave me a good excuse to finally get it! I think it looks perfect in her new room. I love the modern lines, especially the legs and the pink color on natural wood. And I like that when she’ll grow out of it, we’ll still be able to use it as a little divan to seat on with pretty cushions on the sides.

I started bringing more colors in her room by adding other paper animals than the bunny with bright colored backdrop. In the frame on top of the raccoon is the original paper art I made for her baby announcement and the ice cream cone is a prop I made from her first birthday. I got the poms garland in Mexico and the God’s eye too.

I wanted her room now to feel more personal and unique, inspiring for her, filled with colors and decorations that are not baby decoration that you’ve seen a million times already. Objects we brought back from our trips in Morocco and Mexico. My husband is half Moroccan. Paper decorations I made, photos, gifts… from her first almost 2 years.

It is still a work in progress but like every room in our home, I like to move things around all the time!

Every time she sees a basket or paper bag, box… she has to put it on her head! This cute mini basket is one of the few I bought in the souk in Marrakesh!

Oh hello! Her outfit is from Pink Chicken.

The name of this post and Lula’s bedroom is inspired by her favorite french book called Bienvenue a Dreamland. This is a super fresh and colorful book representing scenes at the beach, at the theme park, in tree houses with animals and cute little characters like a grandmother skateboarding, a flying pig… so many fun and magical details to look for.

Lula loves her new bed, you should have seen her face when she saw it for the first time in her room. In two seconds she was jumping on it with a huge smile. She is still adjusting to it at night. We found her a few times sleeping on the floor with her bunnies against the door, because she wanted to get out but didn’t know how to open the door…until this morning!

During the day she likes to put her dolls and bunnies to sleep in her bed. She puts them under the blanket, give them a kiss and say “dodo”. I love her so much!

Her crib used to be against that grey wall and the teepee on the other side of the room, where the bed is now. I like this new setup, I think she likes it too! On the white wall you can see my paper bunny and a garland from my friend Jordan’s BrightLab!

I bought this gorgeous embroidered scarf (not sure how to call it) in Mexico, as well as the striped blanket and the poms on the bear.

The teepee is from House Inhabit and the arctic rocker from The Land of Nod.

Always hugging her friends!

Shoes, shoes, shoes… I don’t know which one of us has the biggest collection! She loves trying on my shoes and walk around the apartment with them, she also like to put her shoes on her dolls, bunnies…and us! Lula is wearing sandals from Zara which I need to find in my size! I am wearing Jelly sandals from American apparel and the ones in the basket are Freshly picked moccasins! We got this beautiful rug in Morocco, during our trip last summer. I am obsessed with it and I want another one…or two!

lula_dreamland_18

I started a little photo gallery on her wall of friends and family, we also have one in the kitchen and in the hallway. She likes to pass by, point and say who she sees in the photos. We are teaching her names. It is the cutest thing to hear the way she pronounces them, you should hear her say “Augustine”, her friend’s name.

She also loves her kitchen my parents offered her for Christmas. She pretends she put salt and pepper and the casserole and taste the imaginary food and say “mmmm” and offers me to taste as well. She like put put things in oven, Every time a key or remote control seems missing, we know this is where we’ll find it.

I got the colorful rattle in Mexico and the mini grocery bag at Mapamundi kids, a new fun store for kids in San Francisco.

This cute hairpin is from Hello Shiso. I know she doesn’t have many hair yet but I’m just so impatient and I couldn’t resist. Her hairs seem actually to be growing lately! I am so excited. All our friend’s kids and others we meet at the park who are younger or same age as Lula have always more hairs. I am so jealous! But sometimes, especially during dinner time I am actually happy she doesn’t have much. It is really hard to take lasagna off hairs!!!

Sayulita, Mexico Part 1

mexico_1

I went to Sayulita for the first time last summer, instantly fell in love and dreamed about going back since.

This time I went with my good friend Zoe. My first trip without Lula, before this week I never left her, not even for one night. I was a little scared at first, tried to convinced my husband to join us for the weekend… but he insisted on the fact that it was a good thing for me to take some time for myself and relax. And he was right, it was a much needed vacation that felt so good! Not to worry about grocery shopping, making dinner, prepare the lunchbox, the time, tidying the house and the toys/books (5 times a day), not being waken up by the cat at 5am and dealing with Lula’s tantrums (those terrible 2!) in the morning when I put on her clothes…

5 days of freedom, wearing dresses and sandals, going to the beach, eating popsicles and tacos, shopping (without an impatient/bored husband next to me) and relaxing on the magical rooftop of our beautiful hotel.

Les Petits Carreaux + My Yellow Bunny

petits_carreaux_1

Do you know the kids clothing brand Les Petits Carreaux? it is designed in France and made in California, I met with the founder Stéphanie a few weeks ago and she offered me that super cute neon yellow skirt for Lula, I’m obsessed with it! I can’t wait for the days to be a little warmer so she can wear it.

Also it’s really fun to see my paper bunny in the spring/summer lookbook!

Shop New Look + Customers Review

new_shop

Hello readers and customers!

I am redesigning my shop a little so you have a nicer experience while shopping, I hope you like it! I have a favor to ask you “my customers”: would you take a few minutes of your time to write a little review on the products you purchased? The writing review section is at the bottom of every product page.

I would also like to add a “customer’s space” section where I’ll be showing photos of you or your little one’s bedroom. So feel free to send me some images! I love to see my pets new homes!

Thank you thank you!

Have a wonderful day.

PS: Get ready for some new bunny colors in the shop soon!
