My Room: Frederick

St. Louis, MO

Frederick Avery is the main object of affection in this lovely room and his mom Amanda tells us about some of the others: Mr. Fred is the first child of two graphic designers who love all things vintage. We don't feel like his room has a "theme," it's just filled with objects we love.

His crib is very simple from Babies R Us, with Amy Butler bedding hand sewn by me. The rocking chair is a vintage metal lawn chair which we had sandblasted and painted cream, then I also made a matching seat cushion. The Expedit was repurposed from our office we dismantled to make way for baby. The 1930's photo above the crib is his namesake, his great-grandfather Fred (wearing knickers!), and the dresser was mine as a girl and was originally in Fred's house. It has been repainted with new knobs from Anthropologie.

The vintage baby scale, boy's wear sign, wall shelf, juggling pin, canoe paddle, school sign, chalkboard and yellow metal F are from our favorite store called Roots Antiques in Maplewood, Missouri.
