Dreaming Worlds

What first draws you into Kristiana Parn's work, is the warmth and calmness that it exudes. Each piece starts as a bare wood panel, which is then slowly saturated with paint, forming areas of transparency where the grain of the wood shows through. The dream like worlds that become Kristiana's final work have an air of simplicity, and you can't help but wish you could escape into them for just a moment.


Gifts to Grow Into

These visually stunning images were shot by Thomas Klementsson for NK, a Stockholm based department store. Although they are from a few years ago, the images are still fresh and engaging, depicting unimpressed children receiving grown-up presents. Back then, NK wanted to encourage more contemporary gift giving for children. Rather than the usual silver spoons and golden charms, they wanted people to buy gifts that they would appreciate more over time. As part of this, they extended the return policy on selected gifts from 30 day to 30 years, allowing children time to grow into their gifts.

Fox Underfoot

These gorgeous felt animal rugs from Sew Heart Felt are made by shaping organic Tibetan wool with soap, water and hand pressure. They are then left to slowly dry under the Nepalese sun before friendly faces are skillfully needle felted to finish the cosy rugs. Designed in England and beautifully hand made in Kathmandu, the Sew Heart Felt collection provides sustainable, traditional work for women in rural Nepal.

Little Fox Music Box

The only thing that beats a fox that can sing and dance, is one that can play a tune on a teapot. In the wonderful sing-along songbook app Little Fox Music Box, you can join in the fun. As well as being able to belt out the songs, you can also enter Fox's Studio which is full of music making devices such as choir birds, croaking frogs and dangling metal spoons. And to top it all off, the characters and landscapes are simply beautiful. It does help that the app was put together by Oscar nominated designer Heidi Wittlinger...
