Clara's Room

Product Description

When Looking for Holiday Spirit… Clara’s Room is my Swedish inspired children’s playroom that was featured in the 2009 Holiday House benefiting Susan G. Komen. The theme of its design was based on the story of The Nutcracker, and like the E.T.A. Hoffman book from which the ballet and Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s score take their inspiration; I wanted to present a window in the world of wonder and whimsy.

The Enchanted Land of Snow… For those unfamiliar, The Nutracker is about a young girl (Marie, usually changed to Clara for the ballet) who encounters The Nutcracker Prince and takes part in a fierce battle against The Mouse King. After the battle in which she takes the role of the heroine, her adventures continue until her prince is made real. Unlike many other stories from the same era, Clara is a character who possesses both inner strength and good judgment, which makes this tale an uplifting and inspiring tale for young ladies everywhere.To tie in the season and setting, I included custom embroidered runners featuring Nutcracker characters, a snowflake area rug and “Swarovski Snowflakes” on the window and table to depict the “Land of Snow”.

But wait a minute… are the runners too long for the table, or the table shrink? What do you think? Surrounding the space are multiple dolls in various sizes from the Bla-Bla collection, they make fine party guests, and beside them, the needlepoint art in the form of a Christmas tree imbues the room with holiday spirit. Each needlepoint piece is one of a kind and handmade, their colorful designs offering a unique and special twist to any child’s space. Finally, a genuine Jose Varona original from the estate of famed Soprano Beverly Sills give the room history through his unique watercolor interpretation of Mother Ginger while a Segovia chandelier provides elegant lighting for enchanted guests.
