Room Size: 12′ x 10′

I tend to think of myself as an “eclectic” person when it comes to decor – mainly meaning that I can’t settle on a particular style. I love the clean lines and fresh colors of modern spaces but at the same time am drawn to the warmth and coziness of a more rustic design. So when I stumbled across this beautiful shared space that perfectly combined the two, I was instantly smitten. And after seeing that Jonny and Freddie’s mum Kristan was able to create a beautiful and stylish space while at the same time incorporating her sons’ most precious toys and possessions, I knew that I had to share it with all of you. So without further ado, welcome to Johnny and Freddie’s cozy, collected abode.

How would you describe the look and feel of this room?
This room feels engaging because there is something to look at in every corner yet it doesn’t feel too cluttered. It is a collective of their favourite things, market finds and sentimental pieces.

What is your favorite piece or element?
I love the hand carved Pinocchio and the yellow beds as well as the oversized Donna Wilson Bear.

What was the biggest challenge decorating this room?
The size – to make the space engaging but not too cluttered.

What do your friends say about the room?
They love the many layers in the room and the mix of colors including using the yellow with red accents.

Do you have any advice for parents creating a room for their child?
I think display things that your kids love – use a nail and hang it on the wall. It provides interest and joy. I like the gallery feel for the walls in this room. It is a very effective way to make a room have personality.

If money were no object, what’s your dream source?
Ralph Lauren Home & Merci Paris.
