While I don’t have kids of my own, I am a proud aunt and have designed more kids rooms and nurseries than I can count over the past 15+ years. Designing kids rooms is of course tons of fun, but there are some pieces that I would love to keep for myself. Why do the kids get to have all the fun anyway? When I’m sourcing pieces for children’s rooms, I often find myself marking them for future use for those taller than the kids – us adults. There are pieces of great quality that are big on style with a price that’s often lower than similar styles found elsewhere. Another reason why I love using pieces from vendors that focus on children’s spaces: a lot of their pieces are perfect for those with smaller living spaces – I’m looking at you, city dwellers.
Here are some of the items I’m currently coveting and why.
I have to kick this off with the chicest nightlight I’ve ever seen. It’s too good to just live in a kid’s room.
A six drawer dresser worthy of a master bedroom.
Sure this candlestick lamp would be stunning in a nursery, but I love it for an entry table or a sideboard in a dining room.
In an entry, bathroom, or hallway, this mirror makes a statement. Carved Oval Mirror – Pottery Barn Kids
Statement floor lamp for the kids but just as good in your living room. Cosmo Floor Lamp – Land of Nod
I’m definitely not afraid of using pink in my designs. I’m a firm believer that any shade of pink can be used and still be considered sophisticated. Isabelle Rug – Pottery Barn Kids
Sure kids items come in fun bold colors and these baskets come in two more than what is shown here, but don’t disregard the neutrals – Stripped La Jolla Baskets – Serena and Lily
Don’t just spoil the babies, wrap yourself up in this alpaca throw – Haven Baby Alpaca Throw – Seren and Lily
