Cecilie Milsted does not want to have toys everywhere.Quality above all
‘In the room there’s a basket of Lego and a mess box full of mixed things. Our children don't have very many toys because we don't think you should have very many things. We're always trying to cut back. Children could actually play with just a spoon, anyway – at least while they're little,’ she says.
TThe most important thing for Cecilie Milsted is that the items in the children’s room are of a high quality – and that they have an aesthetic that is not necessarily aimed at children but could fit in a living room or bedroom.Beautiful textiles
‘I don't think too much about buying things that have been made with children in mind. I buy things for the kids that I’d like to have too – and only things that are good quality. The children have to learn a sense of quality, so we don't buy things that aren't properly made,’ she says.
The bed in the children's room is actually an adult bed, and Cecilie Milsted and her husband chose it so that Wilhelm can take it with him when he moves out in many years' time. Long-term purchases make the most sense for the couple.
As the designer and owner of the exclusive clothing brand Milsted, Cecilie Milsted works with quality textiles professionally, so she doesn’t compromise on the textiles in the children's room.
On top of Svend's bed is a beautiful patchwork quilt that she bought vintage.
‘The boys play and sit on the bed a lot, and I like the bedding to be clean, so I always make the bed in the morning,’ she explains.
