My son’s name is Jett so I wanted to create an airplane themed room. You can see more at my blog. http://6thstreetdesignschool.blogspot.com/2010/01/jetts-room.html

It always interests me to see what people can do when on a tight budget. Creativity and sheer determination can turn out some of the most creative rooms. Today’s Real Room was designed for twins on a slim $400 budget. A bit of a challenge but designer Ashley DeLapp of Evaru Design took the task on with confidence and the outcome was WOW! A do-it-yourself overhaul on both cribs (which were picked up on Craigslist) and a statement rug make this room a favorite (I can’t get over the $40 rug!). Don’t miss all the details on this nursery created for Ashley’s friend Christina and her twin girls, Izzy and Avery.
I know we are here to feature a “Real Room” on this Monday but before I get to the goods I have to acknowledge Mom Brandy’s darling business, Pixie Purls. Knitting is one of those hobbies sitting on my wish list (somewhere between take tennis lessons and live abroad). I’ve enjoyed a few brief lessons from loved ones but have yet to master the art. If you are one of the lucky ones and are searching for perfect little patterns to knit for the babies and toddlers in your life, look here first! It’s easy to see what inspires Brandy to create such beautiful patterns. For her 2nd daughters nursery however, a quilted cover from Pottery Barn Kids and Shabby Chic a la Target provided the inspiration Brandy needed to pull together a magazine look for a whole lot less. Now that baby Rowan has arrived to enjoy her room, we hope the talent behind an online knitting business adds a knit owl pillow or knit mobile next to complete the look!
Carmen Raynor from Retro Rooms has done it again! On Monday we featured her son Jack’s Vintage Cowboy room and today we take a peak inside Carmen’s daughter Lola’s room! With a little innovation and a big love for paper dolls Carmen created an enchanting room for three year-old Lola. I don’t know if it’s the old fashion paper dolls, cute pom pom accents or the glamorous silver mantel that really set this room apart but I can sure see why Lola’s room makes mom happy. Here are all the details on how Carmen brought her design to life.
And just when I am convinced modern is the way to go, I fall in love with vintage all over again! Budding children’s room designer Carmen Raynor has a knack for taking the sweet innocence of the 50’s & 60’s and creating timeless children’s rooms. Carmen has recently launched her Sydney based interior design firm, Retro Rooms – for modern kids! Here’s a peek of her son’s cowboy room with a vintage twist…
