At Laurel & Wolf, we believe you’re never too young to get inspired by great design! Creating a functional space for your little one is important but there is also plenty of room during the design process to encourage exploration and create moments that will delight your child’s imagination.
The perfect example of this is Valeria Girimonte and Alexis Bernard‘s new space for their daughter, Camille. With the help of one of our designers, Estie Kessler, they wanted to create a romantic, playful and serene room that wasn’t too babyish or feminine.
“When I found the wallpaper, I really fell in love with it and wanted to build the room around it,” Valeria said. “I was traveling back and forth to Asia at the time and the highlight of my 16-hour flight was to see what Estie was coming up with.” Estie said the wallpaper was the perfect way to add a bold accent while still keeping the small space bright.
Estie completed Camille’s room with a patterned rug from Lulu & Georgia, a teepee from AllModern, comfy sheepskin from Pottery Barn and a beaded chandelier from RH Baby & Child. “Updating a light fixture or adding a fresh coat of paint are great ways to refresh a space but if budget is a concern, just changing to lighter bedding can transform a room for spring and summer,” said Estie.
Camille enjoys reading books, so Estie also included a bookshelf from AllModern. “I love to read and wanted my kids to grow up with that same passion,” said Valeria. “Having a bookcase was important and filling it up with the books of amazing role women, including Amelia Earhart, Marie Curie, Coco Channel, Frida Kahlo, felt great. I wanted to be able to tell bedtime stories with strong female role models.”
From inspiring books to whimsical design, Camille’s new room has it all. If you’re also thinking about redesigning a room or two in your home, get paired with a designer on our platform today!
