Firmly rooted in a lively dynamic between sophistication and playfulness, this children's room demonstrates that Alice has real design instinct and knack for picking color. Although most children's rooms are themed to a level where kids will outgrow them soon, Alice's version blends timeless modernist design classics from the 1920s (Marcel Breuer's Wassily chair in cowhide and Eileen Gray's famous round side table) with storage reminiscent of lockers popular in the 1950s, and juxtaposes them against a playful metal and colored glass light fixture and clean-lined polar bear rocker. This is a great example of blending elements from different eras and styles to create something amazing that is unique and representative of personal design aesthetic.
