A Child’s Room for Dreamers: the Soft Collection by Nidi Design
The little girl in these pictures isn’t really casting a spell with her star-tipped wand — but you could be forgiven for thinking such a thing, when you see this collection of soft-themed furniture and décor nicknamed “rooms for dreamers,” by Italy’s Nidi Design. Starting with a pillow that’s even inscribed “Dream,” this room and its accessories are the sort any little girl might dream of: padded beds on two levels, cozy blue rug and plush pillows for sitting on the floor, and adorable animal stickers — removable for easy repositioning when needed — and stuffed toys (something “little girls” of all ages love). Yes, there’s whimsy here aplenty…but there’s also practicality.
Practical touches? Removable washable covers on chair cushions and bedding, storage and wardrobe tucked within floor-to-ceiling cabinets and shelving, an L-shaped desk and chair on casters that gives perfect study, or work space, its own cozy “cubby” beneath the bed. There are lots and lots of shelves for all a girl’s treasures — books, toys, or collections — finished in natural cedar that gives the room a welcome touch of warmth. (Note the cedar-paneled “wall” behind the desk, another warming element.) Child-sized ottomans serve as both seating and stepstools for a better view out the window; at night, a long “Chinese”-look lamp gives a soft glow. In fact, this collection is well-named: softness is the key ingredient in materials, finishes, and approach in this collection of children’s room furnishings by Nidi.
