I've been meaning to post something about Moomah for awhile now (thanks to Joanna's latest post, I thought now was as good a time as any). Moomah is a great art space/cafe for kids (and their parents) down in Tribeca. I am completely in love with the concept and the look of the place. The food is great, too - the boy was served a whole cornucopia of healthy snacks, all placed in little dishes set in a bamboo steam tray. He then busied himself with crayons set in little felt bowls (sometimes crayons are still meant for eating, says the boy, but no matter). I noticed that Jacqueline Schmidt, Moomah's creative director, was there and I had to chat her up. She is incredibly sweet. I am so in love with her work. It is whimsical, quirky, clever, beautiful, spirited and sometimes funny. Jacqueline and her husband, George, started Screech Owl Design back in 2008. Their incredible home was also featured in ReadyMade in the February/March 2010 issue. She designed the fabric you see on the couch here, dioramas that are installed throughout the cafe, wrapping paper and all of the art kits. Some of the artwork on the walls included work done by kids, all framed beautifully in white frames. What a lovely idea.

We will have to go back again, soon.
