a playful, eclectic girls' shared room

So excited to finally share the girls' shared room -- a space created with a lot of thought, love, and positive vibes!

When we moved to the suburbs after living in downtown Boston, one of the first projects I wanted to tackle was the girls’ bedroom. My vision for their room was to create a simple yet sophisticated space they could enjoy year after year. 

I wanted my daughters to be surrounded by unique objects that inspire storytelling and creative thinking. While I hand-picked most pieces, I hired an interior designer to execute my vision and to help achieve a curated look.

My girls are between 4 and 6 years old, so it was important for the room to be fun and playful, while still being practical and not too childish. We opted for an eclectic vibe, allowing the room to  be easily changed in the future by simply switching around the decor and art. Keeping the paint color very neutral, I mixed and matched old and new pieces with unique accessories and pops of color to liven up the space.

Whimsical art prints I’ve collected over time are one of the room’s focal points. Mrs. Mighetto, Saar Manche, Emily Winfield Martin, Ruth Landesa are some of the favorite artists represented in the gallery wall. The black & white fine art print is a special self portrait from when I was twenty some weeks pregnant with my oldest daughter.

The Florencia Mirror from Anthropologie was a lucky find and adds depth and personality into the room. Coco Chanel and Anna Wintour Kokeshi Dolls by Lucie Kaas are such a unique addition to the room and inspire the girls’ imagination.

A kilim rug from Mohr & McPherson (a local home store in Boston), jute wool rug, Hillery Sproatt coral blanket, pom pom pillows, and a woven toy basket all add color and texture to the room. Most of these elements also add an ethnic vibe to an otherwise minimal and modern space. I especially love having a little touch of nature in the girls room - they love watching the plant  grow and taking care of it.

Our storage needs were simple - a bookshelf for their growing collection of books, a sideboard for their puzzles and board games, a large toy bin for all of their soft toys, and a small dresser that doubles as a nightstand. I wanted to leave enough open space for pretend play, reading, and puzzles - all the things that the girls are into right now. They have both done a great job keeping the space organized with all of these creative storage solutions.

The articulating brass lamps add shine to this serene space and are perfect for bedtime stories. All of these elements make the room both beautiful and functional. We couldn’t be happier with how their bedroom turned out. Playful, eclectic, yet easily changeable over time.

Jake + Maya Kids: Sustainable Kids Fashion

We are excited to announce the launch of a worldwide Kickstarter campaign by Jake + Maya Kids, a clothing brand that inspires sustainability and creates clothes that last, and save time and money. The collection is called Metamorphosis, and is inspired by moths and their ability to transform themselves. 

As a mom of twins Jake & Maya, Tze Ching Yeung, Founder and Creative Director of Jake + Maya Kids, was frustrated to see the huge volume of clothing that was regularly disposed of because it had just been outgrown.

The brand's philosophy is “Slow Fashion for Fast Growing Kids,” and each item has been cleverly designed to grow as your children. Trousers have adjustable elastic waistbands, some items come with extendable hems and cuffs, and some of the key pieces are reversible and multifunctional. A few pieces also come with extension packs and online tutorials to make them last even longer, while simultaneously giving the garments a fresh look. 

The hope is to inspire the next generation to live more sustainably and be less wasteful, without compromising style and quality. The prints have been made gender neutral and the collection has a lot of mix and match potential. 

So if you are looking for effortless and comfortable pieces you and your kids can personalize and experiment with to create new looks, while being environmental friendly at the same time, Jake + Maya Kids has the perfect collection.

Check out their Kickstarter campaign and help spread the word!
