Tricia Lowenfield, wife, mother, artist, singer, songwriter and designer of today’s Real Room. Tricia loves nothing more than the simple pleasures in life which she exhibits in her creations. It’s also her love of European folk art that inspires her vintage style which is showcased in this charming red and yellow nursery designed for one-month old Evie. The hand-painted dresser and “welcome home morning” custom valance give this room such a sweet and homey feel. After all home is where the heart is. I’m sure little Evie would agree!
Child’s name: Evie
Age: 1 month
Location: The Woodlands, Texas
What was your inspiration for the room?
Evie’s mother asked me to do one painting for the room and it turned into doing every piece in the nursery. I think we both love European Folk art.
What best describes your decorating style?
I love vintage folk art and using old pieces and making them fresh and new again. I like to make a room unique so that each piece is as much as possible a one of a kind with no mass produced items. This makes pieces that can be handed down for generations and can transcend the years from baby to child and even older. Some of the pieces could be eventually moved into a playroom or den.
Please with us choice of paint colors, furniture, art, DIY tips, etc.
We used Benjamin Moore colors starting with two shades of yellow for the walls, and a deep red for the furniture. The armoire, changing table, lamp, light fixture,all paintings,bumper pads,dust ruffle,hampers,knobs,tiles little barrel table and chairs are all custom one of a kind pieces from Tricia Lowenfield Design
What is your favorite item(s) in the room?
Evie’s mothers favorite item is the bunny lamp. Mine is the “Welcome Happy Morning” valance.
Is there anything else you would like PN readers to know?
The baby’s grandfather made several of the wooden pieces.
