Eleanor’s Bizarro World Room

The Land of Nod was so into the bedroom I designed for Eleanor (which they helped furnish) that they recreated the look for their new catalog. It’s on page 61.

Our copy arrived today, and I showed it to Eleanor. “Does this look like your room?” I asked her. She looked at it, then started pointing at toys and asking to play with them upstairs. The girl really wants her mercury glass mushrooms and toy calliope, please.

Here’s Eleanor’s room, for reference.

Quite the resemblance, right? (Although, now that I think about it… they’re based in Chicago. I’m in Chicago. Dudes, why didn’t you just shoot here?)

Anyway, thanks team Nod! It was neat to see the Bizarro World version in the catalog.

    My bedroom is almost the same color pink :) with a yellow bed. I can’t believe I convinced my husband of either of those ideas.

    How cool to have YOUR bedroom featured in their catalog! But really! Mercury glass in a kids room! And, as much punch as that low hanging chandelier adds — two seconds and the adventurous are literally swinging from the chandelier. Those pink poufs are fun — but still like your version best!

      Thanks! I made those myself. The fabric is no longer available, but it was “mom’s couch” by Moda.

    […] Same dresser that I painted pink, and her rocking chair is back too. There wasn’t room for her two wooden bookshelves or the play table, but those will be put to good use […]
