Design Reveal: Home Is Where The Heart Is

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!

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.

    I can appreciate the effort and passion invested in this room but personally, I feel it is just too OTT and not at all calming. It’s very “busy” and too folklory for me. It is a room I would probably tire of very quickly. In saying that, I am sure the little one will love it.

    I love this room. The barrel table is adorable and the checked chair is just perfect. Did you find a red crib, or did you paint it.

    This is my little girl’s room. I guess the pictures don’t do it justice because it is breathtakingly beautiful. The chair is black with white polka dots. Tricia, who is a talented designer, did a fabulous job and we couldn’t be happier with the results!

    Wow, that poor child. This room would give me nightmares. Red is a terrible color for babies.

    wow, to think my sweet little girl’s room could inspire such unkind remarks. We love our little red room and we put a lot of love in there.

    Adorable room! I love the reds and the gingham chair!

    The rude comments are uncalled for. Don’t like it? Move on. I love this site, but some of the comments I’ve been reading (not just on this post) are just mean spirited. I can’t believe the ones making the posts have children…and if they do, I certainly hope their children don’t experience remarks specifically meant to be hurtful.
