An NHL Star Shares A Look Inside His Kids’ Rooms
Winnipeg Jets defensemen Dustin Byfuglien and his wife Emily Hendry live in Winnipeg during hockey season, so they wanted to create a beautiful and inspiring space for their two kids away from their permanent home in Minnesota.
The couple enlisted the help of designer Alana Chernecki of Brillante Design, who specializes in creating organized, inspiring, functional and creative spaces for children of all ages. Alana used a neutral shell for the girl’s room and boy’s room, then added personality to each with playful decor. Click through to see the spaces and get inspiration for your own kid’s room!
