Eloise’s Cozy Corners

September 29, 2019 • DesignHome Decor

the frames and photos i showed in my previous post aren’t the only recent additions to eloise’s room to make it feel cozier. last month i also finally got my hands on the FERM LIVING ROUND DORM SHELF and after briefly contemplating putting it up in our living room, i decided on eloise’s room instead. i’ve liked this design by TRINE ANDERSEN ever since it was first introduced, but once it was hanging on the wall in our own home, i fell in love with it even more. it’s just the perfect way to showcase little trinkets and objects that hold a special meaning and add a layer to the room’s story.

for eloise i really welcomed the opportunity to gather some of her things that we love, and i added in some souvenirs and objects. the oyster shell is from our visit to an oyster bar last spring. it was the first time we took eloise to this place that was already so special to us, because we discovered it on a trip with juliet while i was pregnant with eloise. the fabric crown is from eloise’s first birthday, the knitted pears and rubber duckie were little gifts for eloise before she was even born, while the maileg mouse and main sauvage doudou were some of her first christmas gifts. we also made that little hand print in salt dough around christmas time – it’s one of my favorite ever souvenirs of a tiny baby eloise. the wool paci holder and pacifier were gifts, too, and i love how well they fit the color scheme.

you might also notice another of FERM LIVING’S ACCESSORIES in the photos – eloise’s memory box. i couldn’t be a bigger fan of the brand right now, they make so many beautiful things that appeal to kids and parents alike. and you know that’s my number one requirement for any kids’ toy or piece of decoration that enters our home, right? both generations have to love it, because in my opinion that’s the only way we’ll be able to create a home together where everyone feels good.

what’s your golden advice for decorating/making a home with kids? do you sacrifice your own tastes to please the kids? do you educate them about the choices you make or do you involve the kids in making these decisions? for now, we’ve got a really good give-and-take approach going on, but i wonder how long it will last with our two extremely strong-willed girls!
