Let’s go with a little design today. I meant to share this article AGES ago. The back log of posts I need to write is overwhelming to say the least, but I’m trucking through one day at a time. Today I thought I would share a space I saw in House Beautiful in their August issue I believe (And BTW, I love when the article is also online! So easy to refer back to). While the home isn’t my exact style, it is still impressively decorated.
I really love 2 things about it…
- They have made a small space EXTREMELY FUNCTIONAL for a family of 3.
- They have kept their style while incorporating a place for their child to feel at home too.
I’ve said it before, and I will stand by this until the day I roll over and stop breathing, it IS possible to have a comfortable home, that is family friendly, without losing your sense style and design. I’m not saying it’s easy to do, just that with a little thought, it is more than possible.
The use of the Stokke Tripp Trapp® Highchair in their dining area is brilliant. While not an inexpensive chair, it’s many lives make the investment worth it. It can go from high chair, to child’s chair / booster chair, even an adult chair. I personally LOVE the red color. And though I love our Phil and Ted’s MeToo Chair to keep a modern look around the table, had I seen the Stokke Chair when my 2 yo was a babe, I would have purchased for sure. The chair can work in a traditional or modern home. Great design, great function. Perfect choice for this home!
Coat racks are always helpful and great use of space. Love the little coat hanging there as well as the little chair. My daughters LOVE to hang their coats up. I think it gives them a feeling of belonging to this house too. The yellow chair is darling, and again my 2 yo and 1 yo LOVE having their own little chairs. Ikea has a lot of great options for kids chairs, here (could be painted too), and here (could add small throw pillow). Also, the critter chair very similar to the chair in this home (we have them in black in ours). Can’t beat $12.99
This is just awesome!
I’ve lived in some small spaces. I’ve prided myself on the ability of being able to make almost anything fit and still remain functional.
But this tops anything I’ve ever tried to do. For the record this bedroom is 8′ x 8′
Where oh where do you think their daughter sleeps???
But in a darling little trundle bed of course! Awesome!
Be sure to check out the article online for more fabulous photos from this fantastic LITTLE home!
(Disclosure: House Beautiful doesn’t know me, nor does this designer, nor does Stokke. Just a cool Favorite space that I wanted to share.)
