This is the first post in the brand new Kids At Home series of articles, which Littlesstarblog will feature in the coming months ! I find it fascinating to see how children live, how their different personalities are reflected in their individual spaces and to hear stories about unique pieces of furniture or elements in their homes ! Stay tuned for more and let yourself be inspired…
Today let my introduce you to Emilia’s room in a gorgeous, historical apartment in Berlin, which she shares with her parents and her little brother. It is so wonderfully colorful and with a mix of vintage, new, hand-made and Ikea furniture, it has a very distinct bohemian feeling to it – which I absolutely loved !
I loved how Emilia’s family has little children’s corners all around the apartment and how they each serve a different purpose ! The sideboard above does not only display an oh so pretty variety of vases, plants and flowers but also a little basket full of crayons. Right next to it is one of my personal childhood staples – the Stokke Tripp Trapp in a bright red, which works so great with the gorgeous wall color behind it !
This vintage Ikea dresser complements the beautiful original hardwood floor, while the cute pillow and the wooden toy animals on top of it tie everything together into a neat little package… And in case you are wondering – yes, there really is such a thing as a vintage piece of Ikea furniture !
The one central piece in Emilia’s rooms is this amazing dollhouse that her grandmother custom built for her granddaughter’s fourth birthday. It comes with real light fixtures and a working doorbell – she also spent a lot of time at various flee markets, hunting down the vintage toy furniture pieces inside !
Take a look through the windows for a different point of view… 😉
The sun was shining through the window in this little corner of the apartment and highlights the fact that a little budding artist lives here… The adorable Tigerente (tiger-duck) above was also hand made by Emilia’s crafty and talented grandmother and fits in nicely with all the other wooden toys in the room.
Another little corner harbors this children’s bookshelf from Ikea and a sweet vintage chest of drawers for a little girl’s pink treasures…
The brightest corner of the living room is dedicated to this custom-made train table for Emilia’s little brother – it is his most prized possession ! 🙂
Thanks to Emilia and her family for opening their home and letting me take a peak – I loved it ! And if you would like to see your home and/or your child’s room featured here, don’t hesitate to contact me !
