Leo's Room for Play

Leo's Room for Play

Name: Leo (11 months)
Location: Haarlem, Netherlands

I actually got most of my inspiration from Apartment Therapy. I just wanted to show the result of that and give back. I love natural materials like cotton and wood. The space just evolved, picking up things here and there. Since my son's name is Leo, I started out with a lion theme but there are too many cool things out there to stick to a theme.

I saw the changing table here but it was above budget. Gramps is a carpenter and made it for us! It's my favorite piece of furniture in the house.

I made the origami crane mobile myself. Folded dozens of cranes towards the end of my pregnancy when I was too tired to do anything else. I got the idea from a wedding site where they made a huge crane chandelier.

I tried to design the play area from my son's perspective. At first I had all these toys in a giant toy chest. It was such a mess and even dangerous. I wanted the area to be easy to organize and clean up and also wanted him to be able to easily see and access everything.

Lovely - thanks Liz!
