Plenty of Room for Imagination

Little clients have big imaginations and their rooms should be a reflection of that. My four year old client's room is finally finished. Check out his nautical room below. 

The walls are painted a gray blue to showoff the NOAA Marine charts hung by my fabulous wallpaper hanger. We did the entire Eastern Seaboard and then finished off with the Great Lakes since the clients visit family there every summer. 
Does this dresser look familiar? I think I found it a new home.
 A reading nook with comfy (slip covered) sofa and seafarer trunk (for extra storage) creates a cool kid space that will take little boy to big boy. We wanted to create a space that would grow with him.
 Bead board built-ins are filled with books and galvanized buckets for toy organization. 
 West Elm bedding in gray ticking gives a nautical feel without being too cliche. Want to see more mapped rooms? Sue at one of our favorite blogs, The Zhush, recently posted pics of her little boy's room. I love it Sue! Is it a new trend?

Now for the flip side. While the little boy's room may be fit for a fisherman, check out the little girl's room, fit for a very stylish little girl.
Dwell Studio bedding has enough of a modern twist to off set the sweet antique four poster bed. 
 More modern touches... Ann did another great job with this one. As the little girl grows, this room can grow from prissy and sweet to  Palm Beach Glam. 
 Slip covered slipper chairs in a green Ikat twist on a polka dot. 
 I love the pale pink lamps on the Target (yes Target) mirrored bedside tables. 
I added a little jewelry. Check out the pink polka dot ceramic knobs from World Market!
A final touch of glam. Every little girl needs some, right?

Bye bye birdie,

Great job, ladies! Love all the special and whimsical touches (and that Ugly Doll looks very familiar). We're currently banishing every bit of pink in my daughter's room and going with an aqua and green palate (per her request - she's a mature 8-and-a-half-year-old). Do you mind me asking what is the green polka dot fabric you put on the daughter's slipper chairs? At first glance, I thought it was a Hable Construction fabric but on closer examination I see that it's not.

Love it Hooper! I need you to come help me with Randolph's room.
