2013 Calendar Roundup


I've done away with using a wall calendar in recent years but lately I've needed one more than ever. With our first child having recently started school (and as any parent of school-age children will tell you) there's a lot to keep up with! School trips, mufti-day, money for this, that and the other.... with so many things to remember it can be overwhelming!

Currently I rely on a memo board in our kitchen where I pin newsletters and reminders, and my diary where I write everything down, but for 2013 I'll definitely be adding a calendar to the mix. In addition to helping keep the family organised, it has to look great. While on a quest to hunt down the perfect calendar, I thought I'd share my finds with you. 

The decorative WallSticker Calendar by Ferm Living allows you to write on the stickers with chalk, and it comes with post its for making extra notes. Practical and stylish, this one is at the top of my wishlist!

Beautifully simple, this A3 sized, minimalist 2013 Calendar has been designed by Riikka, the talented designer behind RK Design and the blog Weekday Carnival

The iconic Stendig Calendar, designed by Massimo Vignelli in 1966, is part of the permanent design collection at the MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art). Fitting into any room of the home, I'd love to have this simple, timeless design displayed on the wall in our workspace. The calendar consists of twelve sheets, with some months printed in black lettering on a white background, and others reversed, with white on black. Pages are perforated, to allow them to be torn away neatly. They are available in NZ from Paper Room

Some calendar sheets are too beautiful to discard once the month is up, which is why the 2013 Cities Calendar by Rifles Paper Co. is a great option. As demonstrated in this clever styling collaboration between Paper Mash and stylist Charlotte Love, at the end of each month you can cut, mount and frame the gorgeous images. Genius!

The Harvest Calendar by Norwegian design agency Darling Clementine gets my tick for being printed on recycled paper. Not only that, who can resist such sweet designs, inspired by timeless Scandinavian imagery?

Have you come across any other great calendars for the new year?

  1. I've been a fan of the Stendig calendar for a while, but the Ferm Living one looks super practical and cool. You could even make your own version with chalk board paint - Hudson Paint have a great coloured range. x

    1. Actually, that's a great DIY idea thanks Vic - more economical too x

  2. Loving your blog, just back in NZ and having great fun finding all the fantastic kiwi design blogs. My little girl also just started school and I've been using a blackboard calendar from Esty that has been a life saver! The Ferm living one looks ace, think I'll give it a whirl next year for sure. Cheers

    1. Hi Talia, so glad you're loving the blog! Welcome home - I hope your little girl is enjoying school :-)That Etsy calendar sounds awesome - I might have to have a look! x

  3. Frankie calendar (Frankie magazine - Australia) is divine!
