We've always admired designer Miles Redd's fearlessness when it comes to color and pattern and interesting material choices. And now, after seeing this room, it's clear that those traits come together swimmingly for a child's room!The uniqueness of the room starts before you even enter: the door to the room is upholstered in deep blue leather. Once inside, the walls are papered in a vintage-looking hot air balloon pattern called Balloons by Schumacher (a closeup is pictured below).
We love the pattern-on-pattern quality of the room, with abstract art prints hung over the balloon wallpaper and a striped dresser that's echoed by the stripes of the ceiling. Suspension lighting picks up on the floaty feeling of the balloons. Add some striking yellow accents and the room is complete!
While it seems no expense was spared here, this room is at once perfectly playful for a child yet grown-up enough to last for many years.
