My appreciation for interiors specially designed for children was inspired by the love affair I had with Kelly Wearstler when I was just starting design school. I came across an image of her son’s bedroom and was in awe of how elegant the room was, yet understood this is a place for children.
Kelly Wearstler has long been my inspiration as an interior designer from the moment I was gifted her book Modern Glamour by my mother. To this day I still flip through it for inspiration as each interior featured on the pages is timeless. She has a style that I love and interprets color and lines in this modern and fabulous way.
My comment about children’s rooms is simple: keep the furnishings and textiles soft. Add elements that are mature like a sparkling chandelier or an eye catching wardrobe. I think it is important to reflect style and personality which can be done without injecting kitchy wall decals and cartoon faces on everything. It is a much better design to translate a princess theme with a tulle bedskirt and a fun glamorous pink chandelier.
