Finn's gorgeous room is filled with calm. Wanting to create a neutral space that would grow with him, Finn's mum Heather used a muted colour palette and filled the room with beautiful pieces that wouldn't date. From the white walls and open space, to the muted tones and subtle prints, this space is the perfect place for little Finn to relax and dream...
We asked Finn's mum Heather a few questions about his very cool room:
How would you describe Finn?
He’s a little string bean, tall and lanky like his dad. He’s full of energy, always smiling and on the move. He enjoys eating his books and finding lint balls under cabinets, as well as sliding around in the bathtub and banging on the piano. I don’t know if these are boy things, but I know he is all boy, and I love it.
What sort of space were you trying to create when setting up Finn's room?
We kept it very neutral since our house is not that large and Finn may have to share his room with any future siblings. To that point, I wanted minimal pieces that would fit for any gender and age later on, and all I was seeing during my pregnant pinterest binges was clean, Scandinavian design, which really resonated with me. As he collects more books and toys though, more color enters the room and helps liven it up.
What is your favourite thing in Finn's room?
My favorite thing in his room is definitely the original pencil illustrations by Amelie Fontaine; I bought three pieces from her once I tracked her down.
Where did you collect the pieces in his room?
I purchased everything online or through Etsy. I visited Little Bean in Dallas for a few other plush toys and clothing items.
