Holiday Reveals - Ava's Room / #projectlittlemiss

Because I'm putting together a totally new site, I've had to get my act together and take some photos of completed projects, which means...

I've got some exciting stuff to share, and since the holidays are upon us, I've decided to give you lovelies the gift of reveals every week until the big day arrives...

Untitled #78

And to kick the fun off, I thought I'd show you one of my all time favourite projects...a little girl's room I designed for a friend of mine and her daughter Ava...I called this one #projectlittlemiss

You can read some more about how this project started, a few herehere and here, and some Instagram reveals here and here.
I'm pretty in love with the whole thing- it's totally a little jewel box of a room for a little jewel of a girl.
And the most important part, she loves it too so happy kid, happy designer.
And with that, I'm off to get ready for a little TV shoot action...heading down to CBC today to film a little Steven and Chris...let the nervous excitement commence.
More reveals coming soonly!

  16. What a beautiful bedroom. Thanks for choosing to use a few of my pillows for this great space!Break a leg today too! {}

  17. This is just so gorgeous and wonderful..I was smiling the whole time looking at it. Since I usually have to rein it in to stop myself from decorating my apartment like a five year old girl's room (what can I say, I love pink and I love ruffles!), this is obviously right up my alley :). I would have loved this as a little girl and I love it now! Absolutely stunning, happy, girly...perfect.

  18. Beautiful as always! Love it!
    What a lucky girl :)

  19. I don't care that this is meant to be a little girls room, this 26 year old would move in immediately! This is my fantasy 'if I were single and could make my home so girly it hurts' room. Great job as always!

  20. What a whimsical and charming room! Wow, you have surpassed yourself once more.

  21. You've done a fantastic job of creating such a gorgeous space, your work is just... Inspiring. I've been reading your blog for a while now and I have to admit that seeing you create a beautiful space in your own home and in others has truely inspired me to leave my career in finance for work in a custom furniture showroom and manufacturer. I really just want to say thank you.

  22. The Secret Garden meets Paris!

    Christine,you've created such a divinely,delightful space, if I were Ava I would never want to leave this room ~très jolie


Sorry about the annoying captias...tried turning them off for a day and my inbox exploded with crap.
