Are you ready to take a peek at a super stylish kids bedroom? This week we’re back with Jill, from The Upside’s, home; The Rosemont Residence. This incredible space was also featured in the February Issue of Avenue Magazine!
As kids grow up and develop more of a personal style, it is often reflected in their bedrooms. When we designed this room for an awesome little gal we wanted to ensure that we were investing in timeless furniture that she could grow with. For example, instead of buying a child-size dresser and vanity mirror, we decided on larger more substantial pieces.
One thing that we did decide to make pint-sized was the teensy-tiny adorable door that leads to an even cuter little playhouse under the eaves of the home. We checked with our client, confirmed that her fave colour was, in fact, pink and then painted the entire interior of her playhouse in, you guessed it – PINK!
We know you’ve been wondering about the showstopping wallpaper this entire time (we get it, we’re obsessed too)…it’s from Hygge & West and you can find it, here! We chose this “Petal Pusher” gold wallpaper to create a stylish impact that this little lady could grow with as she got older. We chose to cover all four walls of the room, including the angle of the eaves in the one corner.
We got crafty with an otherwise awkward space, between the closet and the roofline, by adding a built-in desk for the little lady boss to answer important phone calls and make magic happen.
To complement and balance out the pattern of the wallpaper, we selected a solid cream fabric for the custom drapery and accented it with black pompom trim.
Of course, we can’t forget that as savvy and sophisticated as kids can be these days, they are still kids! Durability is a major factor that we consider in the design of children’s rooms. We went with a painted wood headboard and frame, as opposed to an upholstered headboard, for the sake of resiliency. PRO TIP: Painted wood is also a heck of a lot easier to clean than fabric, and this family was just recovering from a traumatic incident involving lipstick and an upholstered headboard.
To further tie the room together we used an old family piece – a vanity dresser and had it refinished and lacquered white. Then, to finish the look we added decorative hardware from Anthropologie to accent the drawers.
