Quincy’s Room

After touring Serena & Lily‘s new design shop in San Francisco a few weeks ago, I was instantly motivated to redesign my son Quincy’s room. There had been a bare corner of his nursery that had challenged me to do something with it. The shop’s incredible art wall was the push I needed to let go of my design inhibitions and to just have fun. In addition to Q’s new artsy corner and with the help of Serena & Lily’s amazing design advisors, I covered a wall in a subtly patterned and slightly textured wallpaper, laid out a wonderfully soft and extra large macramé rug, added a chic bookshelf for all of his toys and books, and accessorized with delightfully printed sheets, throws and pillows. The room now radiates personality, color and fun – it’s just perfect for our little bundle of joy. And as my husband jokes, Quincy’s got the best room in our new house so far. Of course, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

    The picture wall beats it all! What a cute curation for a little boy – artsy and funny and friendly. Love it. The turquoise/stone-combo is a winner as well! <3
