When your home is suddenly not just your home any longer, it can be a bit challenging to keep the décor the way you want to. Taking a child’s belongings into consideration is no easy task when it comes to incorporating them into yours.
Designing children products to fit any home in order to maintain a tasteful and clutter-free space, even when invaded by those little curious ones, is one of Done by Deer’s visions.
The quilt from the Done by Deer Activity play mat can also be used as a cozy play area for your tiny one if removing the arches. A nursery pillow is a great way to practice tummy exercises and learning how to sit up.
The nostalgic wooden swing is great for baby's motor skills. The swing is solid with good back support and has a leather strap to secure the little one.
Having lots of storage is a great way to keep all your clutter at bay and if you include storage that is easy for kids to reach, they can join in when cleaning up.
The Done by Deer selection of toys and furniture are designed in subdued and elegant hues, making it possible to avoid a colourful chaos, but rather maintain a more refined way of compromise. And compromise you will, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing.
Embrace your creativity and allow your kids’ toys to be part of the decorations or display their artwork in your space. This will make them feel included, and at the same time transform your home into the inspiring, comfortable and welcoming space it should be, and although everything will take a beating, letting your kids partake in some of the decoration decisions, may teach them to be a little more tidy.
However, this may just be wishful thinking…
Activity play mat
The Done by Deer design team has worked carefully with every little detail, to create an activity play mat with an outstanding monochrome design.
Toys can easily make a room look untidy with all the different materials and colours they usually come in. This inspired the designers to use a soft colour palette to compliment the modern décor of today.
Five toys in contrasting colours and with different functions to stimulate the baby’s senses are included. Croco will crackle, Elphee will rattle, a small peek-a-boo mirror, a balloon with an adorable chime and another balloon with a bell.
Toys that are all easy to attach or reposition in the 13 different spots on the arches. The mat is a thick quilt that comforts your little one. The arches are attached with Velcro, making it easy to remove them when the baby has outgrown the activity center, or if you want to use the mat on its own.
The Activity play mat has received the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017.
