A Little Sunshine In This Girl's Room

Good Morning!!

It's been a while since I've posted and I am making a goal to get back to it! Lately it's easier said than done, but I am going to make an effort.

Today I want to share with you the board for one of the little girl's rooms that I'm working on in a current project. This room is for an adorable little girl who has the biggest personality in the world and I wanted her room to be as happy and cheery as she is.

I love designing rooms for kids. It is extremely rewarding because the cute little buggers are always so excited and thankful that you are bringing "cool" to their new little worlds. This little girl is no exception, and puts a smile on my face every time I see her. 

Take a look at the design scheme for Adriana's room.

As you can see this room packs a punch! The main points for this room are a) to maximize the space in her room, b) give it lots of color and character, and c) incorporate zebra print which is her personal favorite print.

To maximize the space I chose a day bed, which leaves the space open. The style of the day bed I'm using has a very modern trellis wood design and it is just amazing. I also kept all the walls white which keep the space feeling very open and clean. Light colors are a nice trick to keeping a space feeling large.

I then added pops of zebra to make this little girl happy. I did that by grounding the space with a large 8' round wool zebra rug that has allot of white in it with an exaggerated zebra print. I also added it through accents such as the sheets and the ends of my custom bolster pillows. The idea was to not go over board, but still bringing in this admittedly wild print (no pun intended).

Lastly, to add the sunshine and life to this room I am using pops of sunny yellow and magenta pink. I also had curtains made with a very vibrant Ikat print which add so much character and also unify the many colors and styles that are coming in. Sometimes you need that major statement to bring your space together and in this case it is this fabric. I also used it to make 2 large bolster pillows for the day bed which I capped of the ends with a zebra accent. Mmmmm.

The end result of this room is anything but boring! Things are starting to come together so I should be able to reveal progress pictures for you soon. I will also share the "grown up" bedroom for the older sister which is simply elegant and beautiful.

What do you think of this little girl's room? Visually it has allot going on, which in kid land spells "F.U.N" The white base throughout the room keeps it more toned down, and allowed me to go a bit crazy with the prints of zebra and ikat. I personally love a colorful space for kids. That's part of the fun in designing them, you don't have to color with in the lines.

Talk to you soon~
