A Nod to Children’s Design
This past January at a blogging conference, Chassity Evans of the Charleston lifestyle blog Look Linger Love had a serendipitous meeting with the folks behind the children and family-focused company Land of Nod. From this meeting came the August 2013 Land of Nod catalog idea to design a fantastical children’s bedroom and playroom, and when Garden & Gun’s editor, Maggie Brett Kennedy, caught wind of this project, a dream-team collaboration was born.
Working with Land of Nod’s talented Christina Wressell, Hollie was hired as the styling assistant and saw the project from concept to completion alongside some amazing photographers—the well-known New York photographer Dane Tashima and Charleston’s own Sully Sullivan.
Using Land of Nod products along with Charleston-centric accessories, like handcrafted toys from Magnifilous on King Street, Hollie curated and designed the fun and functional spaces. These details are great examples of how the client’s vision was maintained, with small tweaks and interpretations evolving throughout the design process.
In a whirlwind of Land of Nod awesomeness with a touch of Hollie Wood style, this project was shopped, styled, and completed in four days by a team consisting of Charleston, New York, and Chicago design powerhouses.
