Love Letter to Dave Keune: Dear Dave (can we call you Dave?). We saw Nina's House and, for a few seconds, our heart stopped. It was as if you looked into the heart and soul of Ohdeedoh and created this just for us. (Which we know you didn't, but let us fantasize for a minute.) Nina's house, a "house within a house, a room within a room" is beautiful, thoughtful, creative and inspiring. You have us wrapped around your little finger.
Designer Dave Keune (aka our new favorite person) of the Netherlands is speaking our language. He created Nina's house to address the need to carve out distinct space for a baby in homes which may not have a dedicated nursery space. Hello! And Nina's house is not just a place to sleep. It has a changing pad and storage drawers. It's also not stationary and can be wheeled around for added flexibility. And the roof? It's retractable and can be rolled back with the ropes that connect the different pieces. And just to prove that he's thought of everything, the rails ran be removed and the crib base lowered to create a bed for when Nina [insert your child's name here] outgrows the crib.
Can you buy Nina's House? It's unclear from his website, but we don't even care. We're happy knowing it exists.
