Rowan's Place in the World

My Room

Name: Rowan
Location: Sydney, Australia

When my daughter Peta surprised me with the news of her pregnancy I instantly started thinking about styling the nursery at my house, a two storey Italianate house in the inner city suburb of Ashfield. Soon we knew we were having a boy, that's when I got started.

The first wall art I bought for Rowan (we had already named him) was a 2D map artwork (Australian designer). It was perfect since my inspiration for the room was always going to be about Rowan's place in the world. How we would teach him that the world is made up of many cultures and people and each person is unique. Rowan is a lucky boy to be born in such a diverse country and with education and patience we can make the world a wonderful place.

The world map wall paper is from 'The wall sticker company' The globe mobil is from ABC Kitchen in NYC. A Vintage map of Australia is from my old school classroom.

Well done - thanks Roberta! Readers, visit Roberta at her online clothing boutique Rowantree Design and blog.
