Today we are cheering on Shari Stamps from the chic and sassy website Popsugar.com, more specifically Popsugar Moms. Emphasizing the importance of fun and inspiration when designing a kid’s room, Juvenile Hall Design had two of their room designs chosen to represent the cause.
In my recent posts, I’ve mentioned how it is so exciting that blogging has presented me with a “new” element in my design career. And I have received such positive feedback over these first few months. Thank you to all of you who are sticking by me while I find my voice. I’m so grateful.
One question I have been asked during this time is “How did you start doing children’s rooms?” Well, THIS design is room number ONE! My very first kids room ever.
Now here is the scary part. It is possible that the boy who slept in this nursery could drive right by me on the road. He might even be…dare I say…in college. Oh my god!
And yet I remember this project so clearly. It was a very powerful time for me. This project took me down a path that until that point, I never even considered. Now it’s like breathing. Designing for kids allows me to experience fantasy and imagination to the extreme. I feel so privileged to have had so many parents invite me to create these whimsical spaces for their kids. I am a lucky woman.
The coolest pillow ever!!! I wanted to snatch them up and run.
If you have a kid who digs up bugs, collects rocks or spends more time identifying plants than running on the soccer field, you may have a budding little scientific genius on your hands. There is a lot of emphasis in education today on “group projects.” Schools have swung towards assigning group projects as a way of teaching tolerance and cooperation. That is important, of course. But what if your kid prefers the route of the introvert?
Last week I started a summer series called Feisty Fridays. Since we are well into those lazy days of summer, I thought we would shake things up a bit in the world of kids room design. Today it’s…well, as you can see naming this post is a challenge. Taxidermy! Funny, bold, sophisticated, whimsical, and perfect for a personal touch in a kid’s room. Enjoy!
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and husband Prince William had a baby boy yesterday. His title will be “His Royal Highness Prince (the baby's name) of Cambridge.” It’s amazing to think I remember when Williams mother, Princess Diana, first appeared with him in her arms.
Where do YOU turn for a fun, well-designed and affordable mural for your kid’s room? A great suggestion would be Pop & Lolli.
It's the little details that are vital. Little details make big things happen"
