Global Chic + Kid Friendly Home Decor

Global chic and kid friendly home decor. That’s the result when you have mom of two little ones and Tea Collection‘s co-founder and chief creative officer, Emily Meyer decorate her own home recently featured in Lonny. I was fortunate to meet Emily back in 2002 while pregnant with my first child and Tea was just a few months old. I vividly recall swooning over her gorgeous Asian style pima cotton baby sweaters and her brilliant vision for creating a globally inspired children’s clothing. I know how hard she has worked over the years and am thrilled with her success.

It’s clear to see Emily’s clothing designer roots and deep passion for print, pattern and color in her use of wallpaper, textiles and accessories incorporated throughout her craftsman style home in Palo Alto. She’s not shy to mix period and ethnic styles either. It’s a super approachable, multi-layered and kid-friendly space – love every inch. Here’s a look at my favorite rooms.

San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014: Boy’s Bedroom

Another charming kids space in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase was created by local design firm, Regan Baker Design.  The little boy’s bedroom (aka Little Roamers Room) was inspired by Regan Baker’s own children’s love of building forts.

Taking center stage is a darling denim tent hung from the ceiling. It can even be expand across the room to create a giant playhouse. How fun is that! I also love the hanging lantern centered inside the tent. So darn cute!

Here’s a closer look at the bed layered in throw pillows, wool blanket and bed sheets from Serena & Lily. Love that sweet stuffed chicken too and animal pocket dolls from Coral & Tusk!

The homeowner asked Regan to incorporate the existing 1970s wallpaper. The zig zag parade of animals in orange and white inspired the tribal artwork and southwestern inspired textiles also found throughout the space.

How cute is the closet with map wallpaper, arrows and darling clothing from Tea Collection?

The showhouse is open through May 26th, so there is still time for you to tour. Also, for more information on this boy’s room, visit Regan’s blog!

San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 :: The Master Bedroom

Like fashion shows for clothing designers, showhouses offer a platform for interior designers to incorporate cutting edge products, set trends and push boundaries. One such space that exemplifies this in the 2014 San Francisco Showcase is the master bedroom by Antonio Martins. The San Francisco-based interior designer boldly mixes traditional Portuguese tile, contemporary art and a 18th century antique bed passed down through generations. The result is simply stunning as it captures history and celebrates Portuguese culture in a modern manner.

To honor his heritage, an antique Portuguese Bilros bed, carefully preserved by Antonio’s family since the 18th century, commands attention and is the primary inspiration for the space. Made of “Pau-Santo,” an exotic rosewood, the design of the bed adheres to the strict guidelines of the period. “I have always loved this bed, which incorporates our family crest, and the Showcase was the perfect excuse to bring it to San Francisco,” says Antonio Martins.

In a bold move, Martins covered the wall in blue and white Portuguese tiles known as Azulejos. The 243 hand-painted tiles are a faithful copies of 18th century patterns and designs. To deliver a 21st century twist on traditional form and pattern, Antonio has expanded the tile size and shuffled the images to become a modern piece of art. Incredible.

On the sleek fireplace mantel sits two lucite boxes filled with personal letters (see below). Who knows what they say, but the romantic in me assuming they are all love letters passed down in the family. What a fun way to display such special notes!
