Private Residence - Merida, Mexico

I was beyond thrilled when we received a call from a fellow in Merida, Mexico who needed some of his home redecorated! I've always been fascinated with this country's rich cultural heritage and how that has influenced its design and architecture over hundreds of years! Our client had recently built a modern home but wanted to add a warmth and history to its interiors. He sent over plans and several photos of the rooms he wanted to address and we got to work! The first room we'll highlight is his two youngest sons. They are like most 9 and 10 year olds, spending their days playing soccer, collecting cars and discovering the world around them. Their room was so fun to design and reintroduced me to being a kid again! Enjoy!

This sketch illustrates how the room will feel when completed.

Next to the entrance of the bedroom we wanted to give the boys a spot to hang their hats and a spot to drop their treasures. The eagle console from Thom Filica is such a fun statement and the Christopher Marley  bug art was a natural fit! All boys love bugs!

The croc inspired rug from Safavieh will anchor each bed and add a level of playfulness to the space.

The existing desk between the beds needed a side chair. I love this Klismos inspired piece from Thom Filicia's new collection. A youthful version of a classic frame!

Ottomans at the foot of the bed provide additional seating when the boys are hanging out with friends and the legs on this particular Oly Studio ottoman are show-stoppers!

The spot table from Vanguard Furniture reminded me of a giant Slinky! Another ode to childhood.

Whether a sports fanatic or a young inventor, I thought that this table lamp, reminiscent of jacks, was a smart choice to light their bedsides.

93 inches by 43 inches!!! Large scaled art is a great way to set the tone of a room. I loved this split alligator and how it is related to the rugs.

This suspended solar system will inspire and ignite young minds and add dimension in the room.
