People always ask me which rooms are my favorite to design. I’d have to say toddler rooms hands down. Why? Well this is such a big transition for a child to move from a crib to their big kid bed. They have such a sense of independence and confidence when you can finally tell them “this is your big girl room.”
One of my recent projects was for a little girl whose parents have modern european style. They wanted their daughter to have a sophisticated toddler room that she could grow into, yet one which was still feminine and playful. The little girl’s main requests were that she wanted pink, purple and ballerinas. Our design successfully combined the wishes of the daughter and parents.
The room was basically a blank slate when we started except that the parents had an upholstered bed from their guest room that they wanted to use—not bad to start with a B&B Italia bed! From there we chose the fabric for the window treatments, and then everything else just fell perfectly into place.
