It’s really rare that I see a little boy’s room designed and styled in a way that feels like a child could live there but also has the agility to be completely transformed with a few accessories to an older child’s space. Emily Henderson did just that by using a bold and simple color palette of blue and yellow when designing a space influenced bedroom for a very lucky little boy named Graham.
“The main request from the parents was that it was timeless enough that they didn’t have to redo it in five years — sure, change out the textiles, have fun with the accessories, but the general design and the furniture should remain the same.”
I think Emily nailed it on the head from the cool graphic bedding to the acrylic box that houses a collection of toys to the giant custom artwork centered behind the bed. The whole room is unique and styled without feeling to “grown-up” for a kid to live there.

As my style evolves and I’ve been changing up the style in our house on my wish list has been some art work to go with the new color scheme. Well last week I had a gift card to One Kings Lane and purchased a canvas print of the painting above called All Together by Lisa Golightly. I did a little searching on Lisa to find her other pieces and wasn’t disappointed. Come take a look…
Insanely beautiful right? I love the color palette and style to Lisa’s paintings. All images and prints of her paintings can be found in Lisa Golightly’s Etsy shop Kiki and Polly or you can visit Lisa’s blog here.
Hello, how was your weekend? I spent most of the day in Brooklyn yesterday at a friends Baby shower. Despite the rain it was fun to catch up with old friends. I spied an ad for this exhibit that opened at the The Museum of Modern Art in NYC last week. It’s a giant room of falling water that stops whenever it detects a body passing through. You can walk or skip through it while staying completely dry. How much cooler can you get?!
Hope you had a great Mother’s day. We had a fun and new event come to the lake over the weekend. Professional powerboat races. This year Offshore Powerboat Racing first race of the season was held here. Different types and classes of boats compete in individual races, on the same course, at the same time.
