We’re going to dive right into this week’s fun and fantastic blog by showcasing a very special project for three very special littles. We had previously worked on this gorgeous Parkdale Estate residence, which was featured in Western Living Magazine, and this time we were tasked with the extremely important job of designing three children’s bedrooms.
These bedrooms were for three of the cutest little girls. If you know anything about siblings it’s that everything must be equal or you could have some major drama on your hands (Sisters…am I right?). Our client wanted to be sure that the three rooms were all unique from one another but that they were all balanced in terms of design.
Our client had selected the wallpaper that you see here with her builder, Veranda Homes, and we were thrilled to use it as a starting point for this space! We wanted this room to be light and airy with a mid-century modern vibe. One of our goals when designing children’s bedrooms is to ensure the design of the space grows with the child. Conversely, we always want to include easily-changed and age-appropriate elements to ensure that the little lady moving into her new room still felt comfortable. We did this by subtly adding things like the mint pompom fringe along the valences over the windows or the bedding that gave a fun burst of colour in an otherwise neutral room.[left]

This lucky little gal inherited a bedroom set from the master bedroom of their previous home. As a fun twist, we decided to add some colourful knobs from Anthropologie to give each of the pieces some character. The knobs are an addition that she can easily switch as her style changes. The starting point for this room was the colourful headboard that our client had purchased from Land of Nod – check out this gorgeous piece below! We pulled from the colours of the headboard when we selected a pinstripe rainbow fabric for the window valence. To pull all of it together we paired the bright pops of colour from the fabric of the window valence with the window seat covers and pillows. We love this bright and funky space!
This nursery had a pink ceiling! That’s right – PINK! What a dream. Pulling from the pink tone of the ceiling we sourced a gorgeous pink blush chevron quilted fabric for the window valence, as pictured above. We also found the perfect pink blush and cream polka-dot area rug from Serena & Lily for this room which mimicked the scalloped detail of the ceiling light in the border of the rug. We are so obsessed with how this nursery came together!
PS: The little lady who called the nursery home isn’t quite so little anymore. Alanna just finished refurnishing this space into a big girl room – click here to check out the sneak peek!
