L'Affiche Moderne just got some new Illustrations for kids by Amélie Biggs and they are adoralbe. Amélie Biggs is a Paris-based illustrator working for various clients including publishing or textile companies and home decor brands. The little characters she draws always live in a poetic dreamland full of powdery colours. The first two illustrations are my favorites. You can find the illustrations right here.

I recently discovered this beautiful wallpaper brand Bartsch. The brand is created by two cousins, and they have succesfully combined their skills to create collections of chic and playful patterns in their Parisian workshop. Bartsch, whose name comes from their great grandfather, is the result of the relationship between graphic design and decorative painting. In Spring 2012, the brand is releasing their first collection of high quality wallpapers with modern an poetic patterns and colors for children. I know that when we next time will be decorating a new house, I would use one of these amazing wallpapers. An exclusive brand just for SMALLable! They also make beautiful paint colors, so have a look next time you re-decorate!
