We’ve long been inspired by The Wing, the women’s club that first landed in New York’s Gramercy Park neighborhood and has now spread its wings across the country. Now, it’s opened a new nest: The Little Wing is its first childcare space, found in the club’s SoHo location, and it’s a pastel haven that mothers and children alike are sure to love.

Designed in collaboration with Crate and Kids, this new space features much of the same color palette as The Wing’s many branches—think: a base not-quite-Millennial coral pink, a kick of deep indigo blue, and a smattering of yellow ochre—and plenty of mid-century-style furniture.

Still, though, even though it’s designed for children, it’s also rife with plenty of playthings that just happen to be beautifully designed. Stuffed animals, make-believe kits, and building sets are scattered throughout. Here, both kids and their parents can find the visual inspiration they’re looking for.
