Don't Hang It All on A Hang it All!

(images from the beautiful blog Varpunen, found via Pinterest)

When I found out I was pregnant with Coco the first thing we allowed ourselves to buy 'for the baby' was an Eames Hang it All.
Not essential for a new baby I know. As it turns out, contrary to popular belief, not much is essential for a new baby as the only other thing we bought prior to her arrival was a buggy, and she was fine. Hugh was told off by a stern midwife at the hospital for not having a long sleeved vest ready to put her in when she was born, but seriously it was very warm in that delivery room!
(As normal, I've gone straight off-piste...)

So we have a Hang-it-All.
The problem is, that we do hang it all.
So it looks like this.

You can just spot a couple of the lovely coloured balls on the top right, under a swimming noodle (that's the weird pink thing).

It should look like the ones in the top picture, that are all allowed to breathe and be sculptural!

But now plans are afoot to build a hall cupboard so that we can shove put away all our coats/shoes/bags.
Then we'll move the Hang-it-All to Coco's room, where it belongs.

  1. I know what you mean! This is the we-live-here version of decoration and it's the same here at my place! You should see how many pairs of shoes we have in our entry, it's tragic :)

    By the way, Colette's room is sooooo beautiful!
