tiny tour: mia's room

by Summer

Tiny Tours: Mia's Room | f&f blog

One thing is certain: when you're a librarian's daughter, a room full of amazing books and a cozy spot to read is a guarantee. Utah Mom (and Children's Librarian!) Abbie Carter-Smith has done just that -- created one of those get down on the floor and really play/ read/ imagine spaces for her daughter Mia, unique to her point of view. The room shines with personality.

Thx Abbie!

"We are renting, so I couldn't drastically change the space. Her bedroom is pretty cool, because it's really two rooms in one! One standard-sized bedroom, with a smaller dressing/walk-in closet room attached. We call them her "big room" and her "little room" and she loves them. We use her "big room" for sleeping (she sleeps on a queen-sized floor bed since I co-sleep with her) and we use her "little room" for her closet and also as a little reading nook.

We are having a baby boy in August and I intend for them to share the space. I promised Mia that we won't change anything about her room/s, of course. :) Since her space is pretty gender neutral (like i prefer for children) that's easy to do. I intend on replacing the vintage dresser in her "little room" with a mini crib. We will only be renting this house for one more year and then we are planning on buying our own house.

What I like best about Mia's bedroom is the use of bright color. While I do admire minimalist and monochromatic interiors, I like color far too much to ever pull off those styles. Color makes me feel happier and I feel like it must have the same effect on children as well. Mia says she likes it. I think it fits her 4-year-old personality very well. I like keeping interior walls white and adding color through accessories and textiles. I'd say my decorating style is: eclectic, both retro-influenced and modern, and inspired by Scandinavian style." - Abbie Carter-Smith
