"This room started with the wallpaper," Lisa says. "There are actually two wallpaper patterns, the leaves on the walls and the antique mirror on the ceiling. Metallic keys are almost hidden among the different colored leaves. It's the kind of pattern you could stare at for hours. It immediately reminded me of Maurice Sendak's illustrations from Where the Wild Things Are. It was one of my favorite books as a child. Once it hit me, I was sure that book had to be the inspiration for the room."
"The combination of materials — wood, metal, and clear acrylic — were what helped me carry the feeling of the story into the room. The wrought iron crib reminded me of a garden gate or old fence, while the wood porch swing and sconces are meant to bring the outdoors into the design. The acrylic shelving lends an air of lightness and magic to the room. All in all, I wanted to create a feeling that you were stepping into another world when you entered this room, a world where children and adults could play, let their imaginations run wild, and relax at the same time."
