One large room, one sweet boy and a thousand books. Those were the ingredients we worked with for our latest room styling and we loved every step of the way.
When we came into the room for the first time, it was quite dark. We brought in some light by painting the floor and spray painting the existing cabinets. And this time we chose a light grey (and not the usual white… I know!) to create a basic warmer tone that goes well with the furniture.
We already knew that a girls room does not have to be pink and this room styling certainly proves it again. For this baby girls nursery, we worked with some items that the client wanted to keep, revamp and an absolute must have that the client was inspired by.
When I started this blog, I was already a fan of Pax and Hart. The Australian artist behind this creative brand and stunning range of posters in the very talented Emma Labattaglia. Her style is almost childlike itself. Unique, simple yet very sophisticated, just the way we like it.
Inspired by the whimsy of innocence and the charm of childhood, the Pax and Hart prints complete any space for children (or big kids like us).
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.
