I am so incredibly excited to share Holly’s room with you. Holly is the beautiful girl in the photos below who is lucky enough to be the daughter of children’s interior designer Belinda Kurtz of Petite Vintage Interiors. Now go get a bib because you are going to be drooling a lot:

Holly’s Modern Vintage Room

“In the past few years I have discovered a passion for refinishing old furniture so when I came across this child size peacock chair on ebay for $50, I knew the direction I wanted to take with Holly’s room design.”

“As a children’s interior designer I know that children’s rooms need to be gorgeous but also practical and wallet friendly so I wanted to save money where I could so I could splurge on some statement items. I started to source a few more items vintage items to complement the chair and found some gorgeous little side tables that I sprayed yellow. I refinished the dolls bassinet which is over 40 years old.”

“We wanted to invest in a great bed that would last Holly into her teens and I had to have the gorgeous merino blanket covering her bed. I made the rug, which is just braided fabric I had left over from other projects and an old bed sheet. The paper (Pajaki) chandelier was a project that Holly and I completed together.”

“It took about 6 months to pull all of the pieces together and to complete the DIY projects but we are all thrilled with how it’s come together. Every time Holly walks through the door she says ‘I love my room!’ and that makes all the hard work worthwhile. My decorating philosophy was to invest my money into pieces that will grow with Holly and not to be afraid to tackle a bit of DIY to save money.”

Thank you so much for sharing, Belinda!!

I am beyond in love with this room and it feels a little ridiculous to start listing why, because it’s everything, but I’m going to try to pinpoint some of my favorite parts:

  1. Some of my favorite shops are represented here! The gold and pink wall decals from Urban Walls, the gold heart pillow from Max and Me (a Store Spotlight coming up!), and the cloud pillow from Baby Donkie!
  2. I am now obsessing over some new shops such as Uimi ( blanket), Laura Blythman (rabbit art), and the Family Love Tree (aqua side table).
  3. Bel saved money by mixing some fabulous DIYs (the chandelier, the rug etc.) with smart investments like the bed.
  4. It’s gorgeous, it’s practical, it’s thoughtful, and I love it.
