In My Life. 'Living Stylishly with Children'

 When it comes to style, the French always seem to get it just right.  this is a central Paris apartment of Stylist Irene Cohen and her three children.   I admire and love the decorating style,  to create a fun and child friendly space.  Let's face it children are young for such a small amount of time so embrace it and create happy and functional spaces for all the family to enjoy.  

I love the way the staircase has become a little nook,  the Hummingbird wallpaper by Cole and Son has created a vibrant and happy place to play as well as being functional storage for hanging after school coats, shoes and bags.

The kitchen is vibrant and has a retro feel the smeg fridge and the coordinating highchair  I found one just like this on ebay and painted it to match my kitchen, love it!  
The kitchen table looks inviting, a Cath Kitson table cloth and surrounded by a fun collection of chairs.  Spotlight has a fantastic selection of lovely retro florals to make up your own table coverings.

This is shabby chic and fun.  The old chest of draws has been covered in Cath Kitson wallpaper.  Try hanging your Child's favourite outfits on the walls on decorative hooks...just like this

I am looking forward to blogging my own 'living stylishly with children' images over the next few weeks and I'd love to see yours, so get your camera out and snap some of your home highlights and share your decorating tips for 'Living stylishly with children'.
You can email your images to roberta@rowantreedesigns.com.au.  
Can't wait......
