We're very fond of incorporating family mementos and keepsakes into children's rooms to give children a sense of connectedness and family history (like the handkerchiefs passed from her grandmother and great grandmother to Ashley
, for example). We were struck by how beautiful this collection of antique doilies (also passed down from a grandmother and great grandmother) look framed and hung together.
This bedroom is part of a California home rented by Kristan Cunningham (formerly of HGTV's "Design on a Dime" and design correspondent for the "Rachel Ray Show"). You can see a full home tour in this slideshow
at the Los Angeles Times' website.
Although these framed doilies adorn an adult bedroom, we love the idea of them for a child's room and framing also serves to protect and preserve the doilies. What do you think - too fussy for a kids' room?
