Following on from our recent post about the Boys Adventure Bedroom, we are excited to share the next makeover with you – a shared girls room. The floral wallpaper had us smitten from the moment we saw it and we knew there was no turning back. There is definite shift in my design style as the team and I are venturing towards some adventurous wallpapers and and bolder prints – and in a space like this, you can see why. The impact offered by this large-scale floral wallpaper gives the space a whimsical yet sophisticated look. We love how the X and O prints work on this paper.
As the wallpaper was already making a big statement in the space, we wanted to keep the colour palette soft and simple, sticking to pale pink and cream tones with touches of rose gold and green. The other walls in the room are painted with Jotun Bare (1391). We had the pink upholstered headboards custom made and found the very cute H&M bunny duvet set to accompany them with a selection of textured pillows.
Despite the fact that this is a shared room, we accommodated individual desks for the sisters and they each have their own pegboard (which got a little colour block DIY treatment) above so that they can really customise the space. We also incorporated a large shelving unit for extra storage and display space – this piece is an absolute winner and gives the room some added chic. We found plenty of cute accessories to style it with at Maison du Monde.
The cosy reading corner with it’s beautiful canopy was a big hit with the girls – they were instantly drawn to this area when we revealed the room to them. We included some tiny fairy lights, a loosely woven rug and a couple of scatter cushions to create a perfect little nook. On the wall we hung a bunny head from Fiona Walker (because we seem incapable of finding a kids space complete with our one) and two beautiful watercolour Mrs Mighetto prints from MarMarLand.
After two weeks of intense design plans, shipping challenges, wallpaper hanging and overall life craziness we had two new rooms and four very excited occupants.
