Brierfield Farmhouse: Children’s Bedroom

A pair of twin beds tucked in a cocoon-like space earn this room its playful nickname, the “snore room”

A small bedroom that’s big on style is ready for visits from children or grandchildren, or for an afternoon nap. Homeowner Margot Shaw, founder and editor-in-chief of Flower magazine, and interior designer Mary Evelyn McKee were searching for the perfect fabric when they both clicked on the same one at the exact same time.

“It was serendipitous and ideal for the space,” says Margot. With touches of teal, the dragonfly print ties in with the rest of the home. Instead of using the lighter Baffin Island paint for the walls, the choice was made to go bold, using the darker Devonshire Green, imparting a cocooning effect.
