Design Inspiration

How amusing is this bedroom? The kid in me wants to run in and jump on the bed, ride the mini ferris wheel, and hang from the striped canopy. I know, I know…all you moms out there are probably counting the hazards your little ones would surely find (uh, starting with all the things I just mentioned), but a girl can still dream, can’t she? So, yes, there are some definite sticky- situation red flags here, but you can’t deny the fun of this space either. Additionally, Kansas City designer Kate Dixon included some serious and thoughtful DIY elements: hand-sewn together duckcloth rugs, repurposed wood pallet furniture, custom circus illustrations and pillows, hand-painted tin pail side table, and, of course, a 7-foot tall ferris wheel storage unit. All it needs now is a ring master, some popcorn and an elephant. Step right up!
