Around the House...

Remember the mention of working on my 4th little moth's space [here]? Well, news of friends visiting over the weekend encouraged a push to put the crowning touches on some projects. My little Ethan's room was one of them. I sure hope he likes the finished space created with love just for him. 
Inexpensive striped fabric from Ikea dresses up the table tops when placed under a sheet of lucite.

That's my 'hurry up and take the darn picture' face... and on to the next project. Wish me luck! xo

Looks adorable!!! I am so excited to get in and do up the boys rooms in the new house, a space just for them. I hope they turn out half as good as this room!

dana said...

OK. I'm in AWE!! How and where are you able to find such perfect pieces and put them together so fabulously. I feel like I search and search and never seem to find the right thing for the right spot. You have an incredible gift and unsurpassed talent. I hope your son enjoys his special space.

Adorable!!!! The benches and custom side tables are nice touches! Love your expression, too!

There's nothing like out-of-town visitors to speed up the process! :)

The room looks just perfect! Love the blue and red colour scheme. It makes me want to finish my son's room, it's about half way there and then I lost steam, this inspires me to get it done:)

Blue Fruit said...

It looks brilliant ~ he obviously has a thing for travel, I assume? And wow you look fantastic, love the colourful outfit.

Marcus Design said...

Every piece in this room is amazing, right down to the VW bus!! A little boy's dream. I also adore the fabrics and artwork you chose. And the Eames-replica, my fav, I have 2!!!

Sarah said...

The room is amazing. You did a great job.

Erica said...

My warmest thanks to all of you... really. So now to answer a few things:
the canvas is from homesense (homegoods in the u.s.) as is the little VW bus and the boxer book ends. The tokyo image is from a calender I bought years ago. The Eames replica office chair is from Costco. (I'm inherently frugal)
Debby... don't tease me! You can come and babysit anytime! But I might just stay home. :)
Dana, thanks! If I lived closer we'd shop together and find you the perfect things!
But again, thanks to all of you for every lovely comment. They really do make my day. xo

How beautiful! I adore stylish kid's rooms. It doesn't have to be so typical, you know? Well, obviously you do because you did a fab job! PS Loved your "hurry up and take the photo" picture. Sign of the true power woman ;) haha! Love it.

Hope you have a wonderful day, Love!

Anne-Marie @ 10 Rooms said...

E Lafferty said...

Love this room! Where are the side tables from?

Erica said...

So many more lovely comments... thanks everyone!! xo

E Lafferty... thanks, the side tables were display units from the store Caban. I bought them when they closed up. :)

susan said...

Oh, I love this room and I have 2 boys and in the process of re-doing their rooms. Ages 7 and 8. Do you mind me asking where you purchased the bed?

Erica said...

Thanks Susan.
The bed was purchased at Crate and Barrel and was called the Tattersol I believe. I'm pretty sure it's gone now but they do have a similar model called the Tate. Only difference being button tufting along the back. You may also want to try your luck at West Elm or CB2. Hope this helps. :) Erica
