Creating a Magical Children's Room
with Nina Yasvoin
Meet Nina Yasvoin, mum to Vera, Ari and three fur babies. If you follow Nina on Instagram, you will be familiar with her vintage meets minimal aesthetic. In this interview, Nina welcomes us into her beautiful family home and shares how she creates a warm and nurturing space, minus all the kids clutter that can easily creep into the home.
What’s your philosophy when it comes to decorating at home?
I like to keep things minimal with a few really special pieces to stand out in a room. I really take my time to select and source these special pieces, which most of the time are vintage to create a space that is truly classic and beautiful. I find you can’t rush things and need to live in a space before truly knowing how you want to decorate it.
And the inspiration behind Vera and Ari’s room?
My love for vintage truly comes across in the kiddies rooms. I love old wooden sleigh beds with lots of vintage patchwork quilts. I wanted a space that can grow with them and evolve by adding touches of their favourite pieces to play with which change overtime as they grow up but the timeless style stays the same. Most importantly I want it to be magical for them.
Any tips when designing a children’s bedroom?
Create a space that can grow with your child, that can evolve with their interests. And involve them when it comes to choosing those fun extra pieces that makes it special for them.
How do you balance style and practicality with kids?
I find with so many beautiful children’s products and toys out there it’s really easy to create a space that both you and your child will love, such as this beautiful play tent from Little Teekies. The design is absolutely everything I could ever dream of while creating the perfect play space for my kiddies to enjoy.
What does the LITTLE TEEKIES tent signify in the space?
This play tent creates a magical space that allows them to play, to dream and to let their imagination run wild. It brings a whole new level of excitement to story time, teddy bear picnics or any game that may be going on that day. It really provides hours of fun.
