Why go the expected route of pink frills and princess themes? With longevity in mind, Sappho decided to decorate her girls rooms with a more sophisticated palette and smaller touches of girliness. For Hannah, who is six, she went with black and cream toile by Waverly with touches of hot pink and orange. The bed was tucked into a nook and then custom pillows were made to resemble a daybed and reading nook. Of coarse you can never have enough stuffies!
Here you see a black painted dresser by Henhouse and a newly upholstered vintage chair. The paper patch work “quilt” is conceived and stitched by an artistic friend as a baby shower gift.
Lila’s room was transformed for her third birthday this past May. Out went the crib and in went vintage twin metal beds, custom duvet covers by Les Indiennes (carried by the Henhouse), braided carpet from Henhouse, and a vintage map and paintings found and collected. The dresser was a gift from Henhouse’s furniture maker when Hannah was first born.
