Revisited: Hannah and John from The general Store

When I first posted images of Hannah and Johns House here I totally fell in love with the chilled out vibe of the1975 Californian Home they share with their 2 children Lennon and Costa.

Unsurprisingly the owners of the fabulous 'General Store' have a beautiful relaxing home full of handmade treasures with not a single Ikea item on view. Handmade ceramics from Tracey Wilkinson and K&R ceramics sit atop the low level coffee table on top of the most beautiful thick pile rug I have ever seen and to the left that beautiful wooden lamp..... wow!

Many of the beautiful pieces in their home are available from The General Store's and a select amount of wares are available on line here

I don't know about you but when I was a kid I loved making dens/spaceships with my sister out of chairs and blankets. I was always so sad that I had to take down my secret spaceship  at the end of the day. Now I have little Alex I have been looking for kids room inspiration on Pinterrest and have found these awesome Teepees that look so awesome I am sure any adult would be happy to have one of these up in the sitting room as a permanent feature and I would love for him to have a special 'No Adults' space.

Dens and den building are really important to encourage children's imagination and sense of self and are sadly child psychologists have said that imaginative play is sadly becoming less and less common in todays ipad/t.v culture where adults have less time to spend with their children. So go on put down the remote and build your kid a den :)

p.s A campfire like the one in the third picture  is available from The Land Of Nod
