Mini Tour: Theo's Room

AT:Chicago reader Sa sent in photos of her son Theo's room - a perfect crowning touch to Kids Design month. We think Theo is super lucky to have such a cool room. From the lime green lamp, big blue chair and Chinese pj's to the J. Otto-style poster, we love it all.

More pictures and Sa's note below the jump:

"Dear editors,
I've been meaning to take some pictures of my toddler's room for your Kid's Month for some time now. We live on the top floor of a classic Chicago 1920's three flat. Theo's room is the middle bedroom and has a curved wall with two windows. Although the dresser, bed (converted recently from crib)and rug are from Ikea, I think the room avoids looking like it came from a big-box store.

The big poster is from MassMoca in N. Adams Mass.

The Moses basket that Theo spent the first four months of his life sleeping in is now a toy basket.

The mid-century blue upholstered chair was a find from a now defunct and sorely missed antique store (Brody) on Lincoln Ave here in chicago.

I also showed a view of the table in the kitchen where Theo likes to draw and sometimes eat lunch. I had Home Depot cut down the legs and then I sanded it and painted the top with chalkboard paint. The chair is one of four molded plywood prototypes I bought off ebay.

Theo loves his room and loves having some child-size chairs in other rooms of the apartment.

Thanks, Sa"
