In honor of Spring Break and kids and grandparents, I want to show you this children’s room I did last year in The Woodlands, Texas, near Houston.
Talk about wonderful grandparents huh?! You might remember me showing a sneak peak and phone pics of this space ages ago. Well we finally finished it and did photos!
The paint by number circus art was done by the homeowners Uncle in the 1950s! She remembers them hanging in her nursery and it was so special to be able to use them in this room. Their colors and style were the inspiration for everything including the fabric which is called CORNWALL.
The cabinet and Lee headboards are from Laurie’s Home Furnishings in Tomball, Texas, as well as the lamps. I love how this is a Children’s Space but only the toys and art really are childlike..the fabric could be used anywhere but it is colorful!
All of the sewing and window coverings are by Monica Hancock of Custom Creations in Houston. She is great! I adore how the duvets and bedskirts turned out with the red linen bands! Notice the windows and how the drapes cover so much of the wall, the window really isn’t that big so we used extra wide panels to provide a backdrop for the twin headboards so we could place them on that wall without it looking awkward. I was determined the beds would be on that wall so you would see them when you enter the room as a focal point. Extra long rod and “faked” extra wide drapes made it work!
Lots of vintage touchs everywhere in this room. This is one my favorite clients for many reasons one being she saved everything for her childhood! So lots of fun stuff for me to work with like this red suitcase!
Photos by the fab Becki Griffin’s Curious Details of course. The word and dog and elephant art is by Sugarboo of course (which you can order through me) and of the little animal cars are from Wisteria. I love the vintage blue shelf I found at Round Top last year.
