Steal This Look: Simple Dutch Children's Room

Issue 47 · Children's Design · November 18, 2008

We love this woodlands-inflected children's room by Insidesign in the Netherlands. Recreate the look with inexpensive elements: a Pearl River lantern, a vintage map, a sheepskin from Ikea—and a gnarled branch from your local hiking path.
