While our kids are away at camp, Steve and I are tackling a couple of projects at home. Our first priority: our children's study....
This room used to be my home office, but since then it has been the terribly design neglected study for my children. While the kids are away we wanted to turn this into a beautiful but practical space for the kids to study and to do their many messy projects...
This image from our new favorite book, French Country Style at Home by Sebastastian Siraudeau, became the inspiration for our children's study. Steve and I both loved the industrial feel of this room.
This is our interpretation.
To create the mood, we painted the walls Farrow and Ball "Lamp Room Gray".
We wanted this space to be a place where our children could explore their world, so we hung some of our vintage black and white photos of Europe in the room.
All of the light fixtures are from barnlightelectric.com.
All of the leather accents add warmth to the room. The leather "Frasier Chairs" will only look better as our kids beat up on them!
All of the boxes contain art supplies...
Shameless plug: metal round table and desk are sold through Giannetti Home!
The shades for the windows and the drapery for the closet storage area are still not finished. They will be made from burlap, one of our favorite textiles. Because burlap is so gauzy, the lining becomes more important. We found that drop cloths from Home depot to be the perfect lining (only $9.99 for two!).
The best part of being a designer is to be able to create wonderful spaces for the people we love. This is why we do what we do!
