Mini Abode is a new kids interior design service created in May this year by talented Jo Fastnedge. She was previously an in-house stylist for the renowned english fabric and wallpaper company Romo LtdĀ  where she absorbed and explored the refined english decorating style on a daily basis. She loves to blend colours, patterns and textures incorporating unique vintage finds creating magical, echanting and functional spaces. The room she designed for a girl called Rosa, four years old of age and living in Surrey, England, is a pure delight and we are so happy to share it with you.

english style girlsroom

Jo’s project brief was to create an enchanting and whimsical space that Rosa could grow with. Something grown up and transitional. Feminine without being overly girly. The arrival of a younger sister meant that Rosa would move into a larger room so creating a scheme that would make Rosa feel special and happy was extremely important.

The Oeuf NYC rainbow cushion gives some depth and focus to the light and whimsical girl’s room.

flowery wallpaper

On the mantelpiece sits a spring bunny doll from Nacotopocoto together with a nature girl print poster drawn by Rebecca Jones and a pastel blue retro style radio from Roberts radio against a backdrop of floral whimsical wallpaper “Hummingbirds” by Cole and Son. Notice the carefully chosen little details such as the wooden toadstool from Sass & Bell, a vintage wooden fox, a dream sign by Vertbaudet and the floral oval mirror by Matthew Williamson for Butterfly.

vintage chair

The vintage chair is upholstered in a Romo Calida Alpine fabric and has an open back which looks surprisingly great.The baby deer from Pretty & Printable and the bunny from Little Cloud seem to have found their places comfortably in the cosy and beautiful girlsroom.

vintage kidsdesk

The vintage kidsdesk has been painted in a Farrow and Ball Strong White and the top wallpapered in the Cole and Son’s Hummingbirds. And again, Jo has paid so much attention to choosing just the right details that make all the difference. The seat has been upholstered with a vintage fabric, a golden bee knob from Sass & Belle has been found for the deskdoor and a beautiful vintage tiled hook support from Opium that holds a little straw bag and crownhat. Other details include a gesso picture frame from Cox & Cox, a tinbox with the words “Enjoy the Little Things” from Sass & Belle, a postcard from Belle & Boo and a vintage butterfly print. The bunny and hedgehog from Pretty & Printable will be watching curiously as Rosa paints or writes her first letters and words! So cute isn’t it?

blue beaded chandelier

The blue beaded chandelier from Graham & Green accords so beautifully with the blue and fuchsia faux flowers from Ikea pasted with a delicate pink masking tape on the wall. A neat and dainty look is achieved by the pillow and duvet cover with cute pompom trimmings and the flowery Liberty Betsy quilt from La Petite Collection. Large stripes of muted yellow, pink, greens and greys can be found on the blanket from Rowen and Wren and creates a linear breach from the other patterns found in the room which gives the whole room a sense of harmony and fruition. And there wouldn’t be a whimsical and enchanting girl’s room without a birdscage.. it is so cleverly made to be used as Rosa’s bedside lamp as it has fairy lights inside it. Jo also chose a large woman’s floral basket bag from L.K.Bennet instead of traditional toy storage boxes which becomes a decorative element as well as a practical one.

door detail

Jo seems to have such a natural sense of placing emotional and meaningful details just in the right places. The little heart placed on the cupboard knob has probably been placed there with lots of love in mind. We are pretty sure that Rosa will feel so loved and cherished in this magificient and graceful girl’s room..

Thank you Mini Abode
