Did you catch this bedroom in our latest print issue? It’s a little explorer’s adventurous oasis! We love it for a number of reasons — one is that it’s a tiny apartment room in a rented home, and we were able to transform it without making any permanent or architectural changes. We also love this room because it is just so full of ways to explore, and childhood is all about imagination and exploration. Here, in this little room, you can rattle down the streets of Italy in a Vespa, lift high over the ancient ruins of Myanmar’s Bagan in a hot air balloon, or sail across the waters on a creaky wooden ship.
The room is dotted with global elements — a doll brought back from a friend’s visit to Kenya, a ceramic bowl and dumpling spoon from Taiwan, Hmong textiles, a strand of mirrors and bells originally meant to decorate a camel, an embroidered dress from Guatemala, a row of matryoshka illustrations representing different cultures. And there’s a cozy reading nook, too, stocked with plenty of books and cushions and providing is the perfect launching point toward endless destinations.
What’s your favorite part of this room?
