Steal This Look: Pastel-Bright Children's Room

Issue 15 · Shades of Pastel · April 15, 2014

In her rustic home In Nantes, France, stylist Aurélie Lécuyer creates a playful, graceful, yet somehow sophisticated space for her little girl.

Earlier today, we featured the calm interiors of Aurélie's house (see House Call:Aurélie Lécuyer in France). She styled her child's room with dots of color and carefully considered toys. Here's how to achieve the look with Liberty of London fabric, vintage-inspired toys, and colorful garlands.
