Little Man in a Big World


Out little client loved geography so our first quest was to find a way to incorporate traveling elements to his room without being excessively themey. We wanted something elegant, inspirational and yet fun for a 6-year-old boy.

Design Inspiration

The starting point was a world map into the room. We went the approach that there is no half measure here - let's make the map the feature.  We also selected the world map mural with a laminated finish so that the future traveler could mark places on the map that could then easily be cleaned - an interactive design element perfect for the curious and creative mind. To avoid it looking like a classroom, we added a custom wood frame around the entire piece.

Decorating Style

Modern with a traditional twist

Project Details

The room is filled with items such as the Ducduc Campaign bed , red vintage plane money box, a retro route 66 sign (also a homage to the family's previous home in California). We used colored cork panels and chalkboard paint behind the desk for a fun area to collect images and do homework. We used the versatile Manx FLOR tiles on the floor. More details can be found in our blog post.

Favorite Items

Our favorite pieces are the modern ducduc's Morgan's Desk  - with the iconic eames dowel chair  - and another mid-century modern piece, the devon chair.
