Two things I especially enjoy about Charlie's room are (a) the fact that it promotes children to be kind to others (as suggested by the adorable graphic art framed with IKEA's RIBBA frame) and (b) that is has lots of owls.
Why? Well for one, I prefer kind children to awful ones, and two, owls are super cool and sport graphic shapes babies can easily identify. Speaking of identifying things, the white shelf and the orange box are both from IKEA.
Back to the aviary motif. Something I particularly enjoy about Alyssa's decorating skills is her juxtaposition of organic and handmade things paired with the mass-produced, made-by-machines-and-computers types.
This pairing of birds is the perfect example. See that little vinyl guy atop the door molding? Although tons of decal manufacturers carry birds these days, he's an Etsy score.
Oh and that original owl artwork, you wanna know about that? Too bad. I have to go to lunch now. But you can read about it in the next caption box anyway.
Back to mass-produced things paired with more one-of-a-kind ones. The periwinkle/blue elephant is a handmade children's toy from Asia given to Alyssa by her former co-worker/friend, designer/architect Vern Yip.
Included in Charlie's collection of books are Alyssa's old Shel Silverstein classics. If you are unfamiliar with the work of Shel Silverstein, well then I am sorry. Those of you who do know of his work may be familiar with one Mrs. McTwitter the Babysitter who may be a little bit crazy since she thinks the actual job responsibilities of a sitter are to literally sit ON the baby.
