Kid's Circus Room

Circus3

Kate Dixon a Kansas City photo-stylist and owner of Artistic Living Spaces sent in these lovely shots of a recent interior design project that she finished for the 41st Symphony Designer Showhouse Tour in Kansas City. She created a circus themed kid's room.

Dixon told us, "I wanted it to be a whimsical room where fun and functionality meet. That's why me and my crew made a giant 7ft tall spinning 'ferris wheel' toy storage unit. I made rugs out of duckcloth and stitched them together to give a patchwork effect, and painted over a photo of my son turning him into the ultimate ringmaster of the room. We took old pallets and created fun built in furniture, and used some great artistic friends of mine from SOWN to do pillows, Jeff Shumway to create amazing circus illustrations, and so much more."

when i first read "circus room" i thought oh no...(i find circuses kind of weird and creepy) but this is AMAZING. sort of french feeling with all those stripes.

LOVE this room.

just felt a little bit nervous with the ferris wheel. what if my future kids stick their little fingers in the wheel! *ahhh!*

i do not have children of my own yet. but i can already see myself becoming a very nervous mother, uh oh!!!!
