We’re excited to share a glimpse into Sage Living, a favorite home decor inspiration book sitting on our coffee table, and Erin Abbott Kirkpatrick’s home on our lifestyle blog today. This schoolroom style kids room, decorated by Erin for her son Tom, is a dreamland for any kid. It’s filled with educational maps, books, and activities to fill his mind with possibility. And although it incorporates classic images of nursery rhymes and toys galore, it’s a room that Tom can grow into. Every element was thought out and placed in his bedroom with purpose. Want more? This nursery is equally as stimulating.
From Sage Living, In decorating Tom’s bedroom, Erin drew upon her background in education and her own idyllic Oxford memories to encourage both active adventures and wandering daydreams. The cheerful, engaging space combines equal parts enrichment and enchantment for a room in which the whole family can learn, dream, and grow together.
A canvas hamper keeps a drum, xylophone, and other wood instruments handy for Tom’s frequent urge to strike up the band.
Blocks pile high in braided-rope baskets beneath the window for hands-on fun.
Framed animal and alphabet artworks feel borrowed from a library of illustrated classics.
