One Kid's Room: Two Looks

This weekend, I stumbled onto the blog called, And George, which is authored by Christy Ford.  The mother (Jan Roden) and daughter (Christy Ford) duo run a fantastic store called, And George, in Charlottesville, Virginia.  I need to make a point to visit.

In one of the posts, Christy talks about her children flip flopping rooms more times than her husband would like to count.  Ever since her home was published in Southern Living's November 2010 issue (see here), I have been a long time admirer of her children's rooms.  One of my favorites is seen here...

So adorable.  The soothing pastels, florals and small prints - what's not to love?  Well, I guess at one point her son, Henry, moved into this room and Christy did a fantastic job decorating the space for a boy.

It looks as if the same paint color (Tranquility by BM) was kept which makes re-decorating so much easier.  I love how both rooms are filled with such personal style that they are magically kid friendly.  Neither room is over designed.  I love it.  And, can I just say how much my son would love those bunk beds?


  1. Love the "easy" style , works especially well in a kids room. And that big dog sketch is totally charming!

  2. did you see her home at christmas? i couldn't stop staring when 1st came across her blog. i hadn't stopped by in a while, thanks for the reminder!! :)

  3. I really like the bright walls and the eclectic feel. And of course, I love to see the same room decorated in a different way. That dog print is so cute!!

  4. Oh I am a fan. These rooms do feel kid-friendly and still effortlessly chic.
