When a friend decorates

I have a very dear friend who is in the medical profession and amazes me with her innate talent in designing her kiddies rooms. I begged her to use some images for my blog!

How cute is this sitting area in her five year old daugther's bedroom?
She turned the "what do you do with this space?" off of her son's bedroom into an adorable play area. In this room she focused on a space for creative play sans the electronic gadgets...quite a charming "hideaway" for her three year old boy.
For her two month old daughter she desired to create a non-traditonal girls room, yet still wanted it to feel girly and sweet...task achieved.    
What special touches do you like about her spaces? 

And, speaking of kiddies, check out the fabulous swanky-chic-fete blog for a post on my daughter's past parties. http://swanky-chic-fete.blogspot.com/2011/02/little-girls-birthday-party-hamptontoes.html Her blog is one of my daily inspirations!

What talent. Love the Thomas Paul fabric on the chair and the way she made the most of the angles of the wall in her son's play area.

I think my favorite is the non trad girls room! I love the random lineage on the walls and the use of red, orange, yellow. You can tell she pays attention to detail and that I can appreciate! Love it all :) XO

Don't know what happened to my previous comment. Somehow the font got corrupted. Anywaaaay...
I love fabric on the chair and ottoman and the paint color on the walls of that last bedroom. So happy and elegant at the same time.

So pretty. I love the last room the best, those bright bold colours are awesome for keeping babies alert and interested.

Oh, I love it! This almost makes me want to have kids, Lisa, lol! Something more to decorate for! I mean, you can't decorate a cat room, right? ;) XX!

Love the use of the white space. That orange chair is cool, I have that in pics and fruit bowl!

Lisa, I love each of these spaces. You are right she is soooo creative. I love doing childrens rooms. I am in the midst of a playroom re-do and having so much fun. Today I posted some samples of fabs that are coming my way. I am going to make a decision on one for a very large cushion with contrast welt. If you have a chance come by and see what I am up too!! xo Kathysue

Hmm. I think I need to check to see if my Doctor is equally as talented?
Love the fun touches, playful colors and that the rooms have a minimal touch. Perfectly done.
