Double Take..

Yesterday I was flipping through the June issue of Coastal Living when the nursery photo's of swimsuit designer Marysia Reeves baby's room stopped me in my tracks..I couldn't believe how many elements were similar to my son's room that I designed three years ago. You may have seen the shots of my little guy's room featured on La Dolce Vita - May 09'.

- zebra rug, the horizontal stripes, the lamb, the white canvas drapes, the crib design

Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely not implying anything here, I just thought it was a strange coincidence..I guess great design minds sometimes think alike!

Here are some other photos of Marysia's "surfer chic" {one of my favorite styles} home!

I absolutely love the turquoise interior of these cabinets!

More beach friendly design moments from this month's Coastal Living!

And also a home designed by Sasha Emerson

LOVE designer Sasha Emerson's collection of Madeline Weinrib rugs! Swoon!

Hmmm.....I actually kinda do think she "borrowed" from you. The matching lamb is what puts it over the top. There's no way she matched the stripes, the crib, the zebra AND the rocking lamb. But as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

I think I like yours better! I love the turquoise in the cabinets and how awesome is that zebra covered coffee table?

Wow, amazing similarities in the children's rooms, crazy! Her whole house is awesome! I especially love her living room with the 12 foot high built-ins! Also love the idea to have such a large house plant, it looks great with the high ceilings.

Oh my gosh I absolutely ADORE your son's room! I have a similar striped feature wall in my apt! You can see it in this post:

The lamb IS weird. But, maybe she showed her designer a pic of your nursery as an inspiration pic and, there ya go.

I actually like yours better!

Beth said...

Wow, so many elements are similar (or even identical!) that I must conclude that your pictures "inspired" this room. Nice catch!

Nikki said...

Seriously SWOON! Love those nurseries. Love anything coastal really.

DEFINITELY similar, but both sooo cute. Yours IS definitely ONE of my inspirations If I have a baby :)

Dreaming of high ceilings looking at the last shot!

I am going to have to check out your nursery!! It sounds as if you inspired her, there are too many elements the same but either way it is a compliment, right?!! You have a great design sense so surely someone will want to emulate you!! Now I am checking it out,Kathysue

Kathysue said...

Just checked you room out and I think you were definitely the inspiration. too many similar elements, Kathysue

Hmmm. Curious. Like your room better. The blue is fab.

Oh man. I want a beach house something bad.

Hopefully just an innocent coincidence! Both are lovely rooms for a little boy! The whole house is really lovely - I love those built in shelves behind the sofa!

I love the summer chic feel to the house... but the nursery was definitely inspired by your son's room - you both have great taste ^_^
