I use antique fabrics, but if they get damaged I just replace them. Because I don’t want to live in a showcase. I want to live in a home.
— May Daouk
This bedroom is shared by two of May Daouk’s boys. Although the room is more eclectic than those I usually design, I love that May doesn’t feel confined to a “typical” boy room.
My twin boys have regular curtains and upholstered headboards in their shared room as well .. and I dread the day they ask for Star Wars sheets. Children appreciate good design, too, you know! One of my proudest moments may have been when my then-four-year-old Twin B asked why the hotel we were visiting “has that ugly red mulch.” That’s parenting success right there, baby.
