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 :: Blue Boys Bedroom

The San Francisco Decorator Showcase for 2014, located at 3660 Jackson Street in the city’s upscale Presidio Heights neighborhood is open! Although I haven’t been able to tour it yet, I wanted to share some images of the darling boys bedroom by interior designer, Shelley Cahan of  Shelley & Company. Do you remember her dressing room in last year’s showhouse?

The retreat for the little gentleman is called “Little Boy Blu” and is inspired by a nostalgic sense of adventure. Both sophisticated and playful, the space is filled with rich patterns, muted shades of blue and vintage inspired furnishings and textiles (Restoration Hardware and Serena & Lily). The homeowners asked Shelley to keep the whimsical blue and white wallpaper by Pierre Frey which ended up be a launching point for the room’s design.

Decorative ceilings are the best and I love the aircraft blueprint inspired ceiling in this room. Such a fun way to inspire a little boy to dream, travel and see the world!

How cute is the “BLU” sign in the closet?!

Shelley has a beautiful way of layering and the dresser vignette above is a great example.

I’ll be sharing more of the San Francisco Decorator Showcase in the upcoming weeks, but if you are in the area I encourage you to tour the home. Here’s more details and how to purchase tickets.

happy decorating,

Pastel Easter & Spring Inspiration

It’s only a few days away, so wanted to pass along some inspiring Easter ideas courtesy of Ikea. A soft pastel color palette is always a great direction for an Easter tablescape. This one created by Ikea features ARV dinnerware in pink and white has a simple and rustic look, but it also expresses a soft touch with the wave-shaped edge.

In addition to the setting the table, I also love the idea of hanging seasonal art prints and graphic posters like this message of springtime! A different and nice way to display prints is to use a pant hanger like seen below.

As you transition your wardrobe from winter to spring, it a great time to give your closet a little makeover. One way is to unify the look of your hangers. Love these painted in springtime pastels too!

happy day,

cristin

New Traditional Interior Design by Courtney Giles

This weekend I caught up on reading some of my favorite shelter magazines. There was one house tour featured in Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle that caught my eye. Atlanta-based Interior Designer, Courtney Giles transformed the historic 1911 four bedroom house for a young couple. Sticking with a neutral palette for the most part, Giles’ design blends traditional elements with fresh , modern accents – it’s what I refer to as new traditional interior design. The result is inviting, elegant and current.

The chinoiserie wallpaper in the powder room is dramatic and bold, but a fun choice for this small space.
