Roll up, roll up ... the circus is in town

Themed kid's rooms? Yay or nay? I would normally say nay. That was until today. Kansas based stylist Kate Dixon changed my mind with her amazing vintage circus room. No clichéd, tacky home-makeover-show nightmare. Kate and her team at Artistic Living Spaces create whimsical spaces that are also functional and so much fun! Look at that rug! And that bed! And the ferris wheel! And the chalkboard wall! And the height chart disguised as a game of strength. It's all so clever, so stylish, so hip. I want to be a kid again. I'd be so cool in this room! Lots more after the jump and you can follow the whole process on Kate's blog.

This is lovely! I'm amazed by all the textures and the tenderness of the colours.

Super clever ferris wheel toy storage idea. It wouldn't be my usual colour palette preference but it sure works. Thanks for sharing :) xo

Totally agree.. A themed kids room could be really nice if done so real and tastefully!
