Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
Getting ready to decorate a bedroom for your big kid? You might want to forget the bright primary colors and character-patterned bedding if you expect the space to prime your kiddo for a good nights sleep. A childs bedroom should be a haven, a space they love spending time in, where they feel safe as they drift off to sleep, and comforted by what they see when they wake up in the morning. The elements are crucial for their mental and physical health, especially now when we live in a crazy, fast-paced world filled with overstimulation beyond compare. A healthy bedroom is where the mind, body, and soul re-calibrate.
I wanted this nursery to be a tranquil yet timeless space. The combination of subtle greys, soft pinks and white furniture is timeless and effortlessly stylish and ensures longevity. Taking inspiration from the vintage wallpaper tree art, I have accented this with brighter pinks and lime greens to punctuate the scheme and add freshness. The cotton curtains, have a playful embroidered band across the bottom featuring cats and birds, adding interest and fun to the scheme and contrasting well with the brighter pink linen blind. There is a useful mix of both open and closed storage. Contemporary pieces (such as the bunny nightlight and the grey acrylic storage stool) are mixed with vintage finds (including the wallpaper used for the tree and the antique childrens books) to create a unique room and one that complements the rest of the home. A sweet sanctuary.
