The dip dye trend reminds us of the DIY t-shirts that we made in the late ’80’s. Back then, we certainly did not have the patience and approach (not to mention style) that we have developed over the years to make a piece of cloth dipped in a big bowl of paint look good.
Recently we came across this trend again and decided to give it another try. This time not on our old white tee but on the curtains in the boys room. We thought they could use a funked up version to add a bit of boho to their overall crisp Scandi room.
Although our style has hopefully changed, the method of dip dye has not. It’s easy but does require the right materials.
We love it when we walk out of one of our rooms, leaving behind a happy kid. A seven year old boy this time who was very content with his new place to sleep.
However, it does require time, inspiration, many trips to many different shops and plenty of online shopping before we reach that stage. We just want to take you back to show how we get from moodboard to final room.
Once we have met the little dweller and have seen the room, we often immediately have an idea of what we want to do. In this case, we wanted to work on something solid with touches of nature with a wild edge. This space is a young boys domain, and it will need to stay cool for the coming years.
Once upon a time there was a nine year old girl who was ready for a small version of a big city apartment. Inspired by her passion for ballet and her love for Paris, we were very happy to create a space for her to grow in and grow-up in. This room needed some dreamy metropolitan furnishing with a modern touch.
Some of you might know us more as the kids room stylists. However, we also love working on other styling projects like the one we are currently involved in. Although last details have to be finished, we couldn’t resist to share some pictures of this living room and bedroom with a beachy feel.
We used lots of white, beige and grey, keeping the colors quite basic yet playing with a variety of textures.
