by my illustrious guest blogger comment


Hi! I’m Sally J Shim of SHIM + SONS and SALLYJSHIM. Victoria asked me to be a guest blogger while she is visiting the Big Apple [lucky lady!]. I’m a designer and blogger and I have been journaling my life and creative projects for the past six years. As a mother I often think about how to create a home environment that not only makes my two boys feel cozy and comfortable but also stimulates their creativity. I’m currently in the process of redecorating their playroom and am finding inspiration from some kids cafes.

I first learned about Seesaw, a cafe and play studio in San Francisco, California, from my friend Bonnie Tsang. I love the modern and minimal decor. White + wood are my favorite home interior combination.

Moomah is a cafe and art space in New York City that fosters the creativity of children and parents. I adore how the color palette was chosen because it reflects the colors one finds in nature.

I wish I knew about Kids Cafe Piccolo, a kids cafe and play space in Seoul, while we were living in South Korea. I love how the muted palette creates a calm vibe. I would have definitely taken the boys to this cafe to play and eat yummy Korean food.

  1. Thanks for having me, Victoria!! I think we’re all in agreement that there needs to be more beautiful kids cafes around the world!

  2. What a great concept! I would love to see photos of them with kids actually in them with toys and art supplies strewn about – sort of a Selby for kids:-)
