Tiny Tot Thursday: restoration hardware baby and child

image

The crown canopies make the rooms of Restoration Hardware‘s baby & child. Just the right amount of charm for baby royalties. The collection uses classic elements found in adult spaces like chandeliers and tufted upholstery and some industrial styled decor.

image

Not only are tufted cribs visually beautiful but the extra upholstery is sort of like baby proofing as it would soften the blow if a child falls against it.

image

I like the army styled teepee. Teepees are just so much fun. They literally bring out the kid in you.

Some items are quite pricey because it’s a luxury indulgence but the pieces of furniture are beautiful enough to pass down generations or continue to grow with the child. Some items have a historical aged appearance that are timeless and truly a refreshing classic take on children room designs.

Remember When….I created that last collage…

image

You can see that collage here. The next day I stumbled upon Bliss At Home which had a knock off DIY tutorial of the Worlds Away Anna bar cabinet and boy did she knock it out. 👊

image

I don’t know what I like best: the leopard lining or the teal hue. I know one thing, it inspires me to want to change my hardware on everything.

The rest of her home and the DIY projects is equally gorgeous.

This room has a lot of dimension too in the form of the many textures through out: wood paneled walls, woven headboard, quilted blanket, leather tufted bench. Textures gives interest in an earthy color palette or monochromatic design. Do you like dimension or prefer flush smooth surfaces?

The many uses of a side table…

Side tables are an incredibly practical accessory that aren’t used enough in interior design plans. In order to illustrate the versatility of the side table, we will be looking at the various uses of them throughout the home.

image

The Lounge

The lounge is perhaps the most obvious place to feature a side table. Many people sit them at the side of their couches to provide a base for table lamps and a place of rest for warming mugs of coco on an evening. While this is an undeniably practical use, why not consider your side table as a piece of art too?

Retailers of modern furniture , like Vita Interiors, have a great range of statement side tables. This interesting pyramid piece provides a modern twist on a standard design, while keeping practicality intact. It is sure to become a talking point in your living room, admired by all who visit.
