Today’s pick: a room that I kept thinking about after our photo shoot, because it was so pretty and fun, a perfect perch for a girl of any age.
It belongs to Millie, a charming three year old, and was designed by Little Rock-based designer Tobi Fairley. Millie and her family’s house are a part of our August Family Homes issues, and when I was there for the photo shoot, I kept looking at this room and thinking how much my own daughter (now 14) would enjoy it, and how much I would have enjoyed it as a girl-teenager-young adult as well.
For one, it contains some of my favorite lines: Cole & Son wallpaper, Designers Guild fabrics, an American Leather bed, and Mies van der Rohe ottomans from Soho Modern. All classics in my book, and a great mix–from mid-century modern to the wildly fun prints for which Designers Guild is known.
I can imagine little Millie using elements of this room for years to come–that bed and those ottomans could even look fabulous in a post-college apartment. Fun, colorful, kid-friendly, yet classic enough to last for years, all the elements that make for a great kids’ room.
