Room Tour @AleBesso

Mini Style BlogComment

 I  believe there is always something new to show, and details that we are currently using. I like the evolution from the last post. I created this space for my son, who is now two years and four months old. The idea was to create a fun place with geometric shapes using my favorite palette color of soft grey, blond wood, white and a touch of black.

Now every detail is functional and everything appears to be more organize but still fun. One of the toys my son really likes is the big silver ball, the wooden building blocks, and the chalkboard matrioskas. And one of the things I love most are the details of fish and jellyfish from the blanket and book.

The beautiful details would be the Hay gym hooks, the clothing rack, componibili bedside table, the eye print, and of course the plywood play-box.

Hope you can be inspire and create a fun place for your little ones.
