Le Petit World Traveler


To create a relaxing and welcoming space for our little one that reflected a life of traveling and discovery (those from the past and those to come). I wanted to incorporate objects from around the world as well as books from my childhood (in Spanish) and accents from Brussels (my husband's home town). As we often have family/friends visiting from overseas it was a must to have a daybed! We love the one we found and the six large storage baskets underneath will surely come handy for toys, linens and diapers.

Design Inspiration

It all started with the wallpaper that had scenes from different landmarks around the world. We also knew from the beginning that we wanted to have elephants as we had fallen in love with Eames elephant during a recent visit to Vitra Haus in Germany. Elephants remind us of Kenya, a favorite spot for both of us (hence the safari angle was added too!).

Decorating Style

Modern, eclectic, relaxing, minimalist.

It really helped me to start with a design board collecting fabrics and photos of objects I wanted to incorporate.
