Minor Obsessions

Katie Ridder girls room

This week I’m really obsessed with getting my eleven year old’s room into gear…it’s not really a minor obsession truthfully, but rather a major one. The room has an odd layout and is proving trickier than I had originally thought (you can see photos of it here). Unlike my older daughter’s room re-do, that practically designed itself, I needed to call in the big guns and get Lauren Muse, to help me sort this out. The image above, designed by Katie Ridder, is proving to be a helpful jumping off point. (As is the fabric from this Monday’s P.O.P).

In the image above, the simple white bedding and the positioning of the bed in front of the window, with that fabulous window treatment to frame it all out, is absolutely something we are all now considering. Other considerations include the shape of this headboard, this light fixture and this cute way to add some extra storage, found by my daughter online! What design projects have you been obsessed with lately?

    I remember similar pendant lights from when I was a child. They look great when clean, but are terrible dust collectors, and look shabby as soon as they get dusty. Much worse than chandeliers, which at least cope well with a mild dose of the Miss Havishams.

  8. I have read several articles in industrial kitchen equipment and accessories, but this article seems to be pretty much confident with unique and interesting lines. Personally, I think itโ€™s greatly a necessary article which is amazing with its technique to understand.
