I’ve been working on a few client spaces recently and thought I’d share some of the plans.
This playroom is actually for the Montgomery House. I went to Round Top just this past weekend with my friend and client and we got some great HUGE letters for this space to spell out “Play” above the tv. I’m excited to see it all come together. I’ll be headed up there in a few weeks for the install and Paul will be coming with me to get some great pictures.
These next two are for siblings- a big sister and then a shared space for two little brothers.
I did the install for these just last week and my client is still working on a few more things. She made some amazing curtains for the boys’ room with that plaid fabric and I can’t wait for you to see them!
In all of these rooms, I’ve tried to stay true to my overall philosophy of designing with kids. These are just moodboards, so of course they involve a plan for the space and even somewhat of a color scheme, but I always try to keep everything from getting too matchy-matchy. I love to mix patterns and colors and the idea is that even though we are going to add in their toys and books, those things will feel completely natural and welcome in the space- not like unwelcome intruders now that the room has been “designed.” Just like any room, a kids’ space should feel like it belongs to them, like they have some ownership and part in it.
Don’t be afraid to mix patterns. Choose contrasting prints of different sizes and colors for the best mix and then just let life dictate the colors! Let books, the kids’ toys, their art, their interests be what decorate their rooms and make them unique.
Looking forward to finishing up these rooms and sharing more with you soon!
