A Project For

Anna

Age

7

Location

NYC

Description

I wanted to create a room with an heirloom feel to it. One which would take my daughter, then 3 yrs old, all the way through....

Design Inspiration

My inspiration for Anna's room was the same as the rest of our home...a few beautiful things that can stand alone. I'm drawn to pattern and I'm not afraid of color.

Decorating Style

I am somewhat of a purist, so I focus on individually beautiful and well made pieces. Equally important is that the piece(s) will remain in our home long term.

Project Details

Anna's Cast Iron Full size bed is the Rutherford Bed from Charles P. Rogers http://www.charlesprogers.com/rutherford-bed-p-3.html?cPath=6_56 The wallpaper is Hummingbirds by Cole & Son Wallpapers http://www.cole-and-son.com/collection_detail.asp?collectionid=109 The interior closet wallpaper is Bumble Bee from Farrow & Ball http://us.farrow-ball.com/bumble-bee-bp-551/bumblebee//fcp-product/200551 The curtains are a nubby silk solid The rug is Cat's Paw Hooked Wool Rug by Dash and Albert and is found at Garnet Hill http://www.garnethill.com/cat-s-paw-hooked-wool-rug-by-dash-and-albert/bedding-home/rugs/hooked/13422

Favorite Items

The view...but I can't take credit for that!

Advice

Choose one expensive item, for example a good quality wool rug, that will grow with your child/family. The rest can be a mix of some quality items and inexpensive items. For example, Anna's bed is a Full size, so she'll grow into it. Her lamps are vintage and I've had them for 25 years...they've been used in my bedroom, guest bedrooms and sitting area.

    Lovely wallpaper. It’s like one of those wallpapers we see in charming houses years ago. I am curious about the rug. It looks really interesting from afar, and it would have been great if there was a photo of its details.
