mixing style + kids

Yes, it possible to mix the two.

I'm working on a study/TV room, and the client wanted "style" but still a place where her three young boys would feel comfortable and be able to study.
(You might remember that I recently shared the fabrics from this same client's bedroom project.)  

I found this photograph and I would say it has both style and a sense of playfulness.  Just what I wanted.

Thankfully Meredith liked it too and the seller is willing to make custom sizes.
What do you think?
Isn't a Vespa photograph so fun?

Here are other pieces from this same seller I think are wonderful for both kids and adults.


You can find them all here.

switching gears...
I know I said I'd be sharing a big surprise.
Have you ever seen these buildings in Chicago?

My mom and her husband live there and they are totally gutting their one-bedroom condo and they've asked for my help!  I spent last weekend having a blast with my mom, selecting *every* material for their renovation.  Would you believe it only took a couple hours?!  She is so excited and I know it's going to look amazing.  I took a million pictures from our adventures but I'm saving those for another post.
Ya'll come back to read all about it!

  2. I love those car images! They're spunky and fun, but kind hip enough that a parent will still like looking at them too.

    Sounds fun working on your mom's place!

  3. The Vespa/automobile photographic art are so awesome - perfect for a family space. I love selecting those touches that are just going to set the stage for the room - and I think you've done just that. AND, how fun about your Mom's condo??!! I can't wait to see what you've cooked up. I was just thinking earlier that I might surprise my Mom at Christmas and make her new window treatments or pillows or something - something to jazz up her living room.
