Project Description

Timeless Treasure Kids’ Den

LiLu’s most recent work with these long-time clients was to freshen up significant spaces in their Minneapolis home. Staying true to our original concept of creating a traditional, welcoming, and comfortable retreat, these homeowners have expanded on their love for living and entertaining in a sophisticated, yet casual style.

The kids’ den doubles as a sitting area for quiet activities like reading and needlepoint away from the more active great room. It also serves as a nursery for visiting grandchildren. Peter Pan inspired the design of the den, complete with some wonderful needlepoint accessories created by the homeowner.
