After working with Leah's mom in designing their family room and kitchen a few years early, she contacted me to redesigned Leah's bedroom. She wanted a space that wasn't all about trademarked princess but a room that Leah would love now and could grow into. After talking with Leah I found out that she really wanted a canopy, that and the room to have sleepovers:)
The inspiration for this project was the fabric used for the canopy. I fell in love with it's colours, (and so did Leah and her mom). So it became my jumping off point for everything else.
I'm all about creating timeless yet fun spaces that are designed to grow with your child as their needs and tastes change.

I'm not a fan of matchy- matchy sets. So in my children's room designs packages I love to mix old pieces with new pieces. Sourcing previously loved items not only helps keep the budget in check, but gives a forgot piece new life and adds some fun character to the space.
