So this is our first ever blog - welcome! We thought we’d better kick off this blog business with a bit of an intro - we are SPACEY. We are 2 mums with a handful of kids between us, a background in design (Tania) and branding (Sally). We are lucky enough to live a stunning bush-walk apart in the Waitakere Ranges.
We started SPACEY after we realised we both had a real passion for kids’ spaces, and felt like there was a divide between the dream of all those Pinterest-worthy bedrooms and the reality of having kids. Kids have stuff! And kids can be MESSY! As much as you try to keep it minimalist somehow kids are magnets for all things busy.
We have huge plans to produce multi-functional pieces that allow for super clever storage, yet still having beautifully designed spaces for kids. We are rolling out SPACEY-designed pieces as we can, and have also curated some really special things from New Zealand and around the world for you to enjoy. We’ll aim to profile how some of these pieces came about for you as we write our blogs, and will also share some clever and simple ideas on how to keep your kids’ spaces organised.
We’re all about ensuring your kids have the space in their rooms to get creative and have fun! One of our first SPACEY-designed pieces is our double sided play mat - it’s so easy to roll up and pop away, and get out when your kids feel like having a pretend tea party, or play some hopscotch. One side has a gorgeous picnic mat play-setting (perfect for playing with our delicious range of hand made felt food), and the other has a cool game of hopscotch that includes Te Reo numbers, and comes with a felt “stone” for throwing. Designed and printed in New Zealand, we just love how easy this is to bring out on a rainy day.
So now you know a little bit about us! We’d love to hear your thoughts, and welcome your feedback. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
