London Calling | Inspired by the British

I was definitely feeling a little UK love today when I entered the Poshtots Children's Bedroom Challenge on Olioboard.  (Head over and vote for my entry, pretty please!)
Even though I designed the set for a kid's room--specifically a sophisticated little British girl--I thought it was a perfect inspiration board to also share here on LU.

The room began as an empty exposed brick space with beautiful hardwood floors.  The major inspiration piece was the "Up, Up, and Away" pillow.  And since I love how bold red complements pale blue, my color scheme was set.  I threw in an aged ivory tone for a neutral.  The bed is a simple corner daybed, which I dressed with red sheets and an assortment of pillows featuring map prints and floral patterns.  What better nightstand for a travel-inspired room than a vintage suitcase on legs?  A big dresser painted robin's egg blue steels the show with a red mirror hung overhead.  An ivory and red desk is decked out with a map, lamp, and old books... with a galvanized can nearby for trash.  I threw Brit-love all over the place--the rug, a cute little boat accessory, and an art print.  On one window I hung solid red curtain panels, while I went with a fun floral panel for the window nearest the bed.

I've always wanted to go to London... and looking at this room makes me want to go all the more!
