• I just love this room. The crib, the colours, the day bed, your great use of space... it's an absolute inspiration. Way to go!

Congratulations Roo!

What readers said:
• I love it! Great use of a small space and it's a great blend between grown up design with kid friendly elements. (i.e. it's really cute without making me want to poke my eyes out).
• This room is outstanding and a nice display of how you can give your kids everything they need without spoiling them.
• What a cute and fun room for your little ladies!

International Division Winner: Gabriella's Artful Dreamland
Congratulations Ella!

What readers said:
• I want to live in there. It is feminine without being too frilly or too pink. You have also managed to make it a fun, playful space as well as a calming space. I'll file this one away as inspiration in case I have a girl.
• Super sweet and girly and unfussy, i love it.
• I love this! Minimalist rooms do nothing for me--I adore rooms like this packed with tiny lovely little details and charms.
