Room Inspiration

This week's room inspiration comes from this incredibly cute hand sewn sock owl by Jen Rossi of Katchen, a Cambridge based company.   No owl is ever alike, but each offers beautifully picked vintage fabrics, colorful yarns, and  signed and numbered tags.    Truly an original gift.

Below is a child's space.  At Cocoon Home Design our approach to creating a child's room is similar to any room we're asked to transform.  Meeting the needs of the space while maintaining the style and aesthetic of the home is always our goal.  Making sure that it's functional for nursing, sleeping, playing, as well as admiring the little one,  IS important. Never overlooking the fact that the room needs to be comfortable, cozy and a bit whimsical.  We choose pieces that can grow with your child and your home.

Take a look at how we do it.

This Peacock Dark  rug is the foundation of the room.  Creating a beautiful scene to walk and play on.

I love this hand painted chest of drawers from Restoration and Originals.  You can use the top as a changing table and conveniently store diapers and creams in the first drawer.

I found this Storkcraft convertible crib at Walmart. I love the traditional lines, the expresso color and the functionality of it.  See how it transforms from a crib to a daybed to a full size bed.

I love these sheets from Oilo in brown stripes.  They remind me of camp sheets.  Now add a vibrant colored blanket from Hudson and make a statement.  See below.

A place to settle in and read to the little one.  The Lunet Chair from Anthropologie.

Kartell's Stone Stool works as a table and extra seating while adding a contemporary touch to the room.

A soft touch for the lighting, this chandelier from Anthropologie reminds me of the legs on the owl.  Remember to use dimmers for all the lights in all your rooms, especially in the  baby's room.  Add a few book shelves and the room is set.  Let me know what you think.
