This room was designed for a little man who had just moved with his family to New York from San Francisco. He had a passion for sports in general and especially for baseball. We wanted to follow this theme and yet keep the decor very simple and elegant.
The starting points for us were a baseball striped wall paper - we used as an accent wall behind the boy's bed - plus the mother requested for a cork wall on which her sons could put up art, homework and pictures like she had as a child. We then decided to continue the wall "stripes" onto the floor, aligning the colored bands of "made you look" Flor Tiles with the colored bands on the wall.
The parents asked for a youthful room that was young and fresh but not overly contemporary - so we decided to combine some modern pieces and mix them in with other retro and more fun pieces.
Against the subtle and muted tones of the wall and floor treatments we selected fresh white furniture and pops of color to bring in some energy to the composition. The campaign bed by Duc Duc was the first furniture choice - coupling it with Duc Duc's Alex night stand in bright blue. They both bought a pop of color and energy to the room. Keeping the room fun the baseball bedside lap was chosen to charm the room's inhabitant. Lastly Duc Duc's Austin desk with bright orange draw interiors awaits homework with an industrial era style green lamp to add a contrasting color and style to the rest of the room.
In choosing art for the wall we paid homage to the families loyalties to teams from both New York and San Francisco - with Gemini Studio's vintage style New York Jets and a retro San Francisco Giants image.
