gorgeous! Where did you get that chair and blackboard-table from? whats the name of it for me to look it up on ebay or similar?
Kisses from a spanish blogger


Thanks Puri. The desk and chair are both ebay finds. The desk is a 1950's toddler/pre-school desk and the chair is a vintage Harry Bertoia Child's Chair. Cheers!

very nice. let's zoom in on that rainbow & animals picture now...


Thanks greg! The picture is Noah's Ark by Clifford Richards. I scored it at the Design Museum in London. Here is a close up for you : http://minordetails.typepad.com/md_weblog/2008/03/a-pop-icon.html


Beautiful room! Your daughter is a lucky gal.


Wow! Very nice room! Beautiful! you're daughter is very lucky.

I just found your blog and I love it! Keep up the good work! :-D


thanks for leting us take a look around your daughter's room! i like the bed with the drapes and the lights.
ps: i just wrote a post about that magnetic theater i'm seeing on your shelf yesterday. funny!


thanks so much for all your kind words. i hate to go sappy here but im pretty lucky to have a daughter like her so it was really fun to create this room for her.

wow - looks great! love the wall color. can you share the paint mfg/color?


chris m - glad you like it. i was afraid of going too girly purple. i really wanted to achieve a 1950's french flea market feel. i went with Benjamin Moore's Purple Rain : #1386 in interior eggshell latex. when selecting paint, half is in the name in my opinion. and if it's good enough for Prince, then it's certainly good in my book! (here is the custom breakdown from Lowes 101-16 , 102-7.5 , 113-1Y1 , 115-43)


Love the shelves in your daughters room;)


absolutely brilliant! i love every single detail.


Fabulous room! This is a room both adults and children can appreciate. I can see this room growing with your daughter. Would you mind sharing the source for that wonderful rug? Thanks.


laurie, thanks so much. i do hope she enjoys growing up in this space. although i do tend to change things up often. i got really lucky with the rug actually. i found it on clearance at urban outfitters of all places. it was never on their website. i just got really lucky with that one.


Jennifer, the room decor is brilliant! I think the rug ties everything together and gives the room this exotic look. Could you please tell me where you found this fabulous rug and what its name is?


oh my goodness, I really do not have many toys left over from my childhood but I too still own and have every piece of the magnetic theatre! I remember even choosing it as a child.
