we discovered a tree full of soothers (“sutten” in Danish). When the child is seen as no longer a baby, usually when he starts going to kindergarten, he is encouraged to hang up his soothers on a tree to show he has grown up and doesn’t need them any more…
In the shop soon! XO
French artist Jean-François Fourtou loves to play with the ideas of perspective and childhood worlds of imagination and magic. Playing with proportion and scale, Fourtou’s houses are inspired by personal memories of childhood and the disproportion of scenes from books such as Alice in Wonderland or Gulliver’s Travels. The experience of walking on the ceilings must evoke both a disorienting and funny feeling…and what about sharing table with a natural scale giraffe in your dining room? XO

It’s celebration time at xo-inmyroom!
Last week, a year since we started this blog, after more than 100 post, and the good friends we’ve made…we had a good reason to celebrate. Was Pablo’s birthday too, and this yummy cake, all in pink (thank you, Yolanda!) was for Olivia’s. Already 18 and such a beauty!
And not to forget: spring is here! XO
Everybody knows how much we love all things handmade.
Today we came across the story of Nishi Chauhan, as she explains:“It all started with the gradual accumulation of glass bottles in our household. Beer bottles, mason jars, wine bottles, pickles, preserves and sauce bottles, ad nauseum. Soon it became difficult to ignore and the bottles in the growing pile took on a life of their own. Shapes started to emerge- animals, things, people I’d known and possibly even a cloud or two! From such trivialities are ideas born.”

Happy weekend!!! XO
Early this morning, we took these pictures while shooting on location in the south of Spain. We are staying at this amazing english manor house located in the middle of the andalusian countryside. It has a beautiful story that was told to us by the current owner: his great-grandfather, an andalusian aristocrat, fell in love with an english young lady. To convince her to marry him and come to Spain and live, he built up this house as a replica of the one she was born in back in England, by bringing architects, artisans and all materials from abroad. This is love! XO
Benjamin is the last-born of our “sons”, and the smallest in the family…also Benjamin (Franklin) because of our american inspiration!
