These two little sisters are my all time favorite clients, reason being... they are my own spunky little girls and designing this room was a dream! The number one reason why I loved doing this room so much more than their individual nurseries is because I know them now... I decorated their other rooms while they were still in my womb, so I could only use my imagination and guess from what I could tell their personalities would be. :) The last 4 and a half years of motherhood has been pure heaven, so entirely blissful, and this feeling is what I wanted to create in their room. I think I nailed it on the head, and I am so happy with how it turned out, but I am even more thrilled with how much I see them loving and admiring their room.
The starting point of the room was picking out this bed and bedding. I knew I wanted to get a white twin over full wooden bunk bed for them to share and I was so excited when I found the comforters at TJmaxx on super clearance and added a few pillows.
II purchased this bunk bed from a local wholesale warehouse, but found this similar version on amazon for an even better price!
After I decided on the color scheme, I decided on the wall treatment. I wanted something super airy and light, and Olivia insisted on pink walls. So I went with 75% strength of Kwal's 'pink-a-boo' and made stripes with Kwal's 'washbasin'... Its VERY subtle, but I new I didn't want a saturated pink, so to me, this turned out perfectly.
Stay tuned for a tutorial I have in the works to create the perfect stripe. :)
I found this little guy a few years back for Charly's nursery at a consignment shop for $30. I painted it Rustoleum white and added a cute stencil on the top in a silvery gray. Similar quatrefoil stencil's can be purchased on etsy.I chose to put a shelf next to the top bunk per my 4 year olds request. She was a tad jealous her little sister had a place to put her night time water cup and thought she needed a spot for hers too. She was so excited and proud helping me hang her shelf. Home girl even knew what a level was. (proud momma moment right there!) These little items are a few of our keepsakes, this little teddy bear was actually the bear I took home from the hospital when I was a new born. I am so sentimental and I love seeing my childhood buddy displayed after all of these years.
My sweet Grandfather made the girls this toybox for Christmas one year. I am so happy to have been able to create such a sweet "window seat" area in their room. We love reading books here.
This delicious dresser was a lucky ksl classifieds find!!! It not only has 9 generous sized drawers, but the lady new what she was doing when she refinished this, and of course I adore the chevron top!
I love how all of the graphic prints came together in this room! There is a lot going on in here, but the prints work together because they are a similar color.
Again, here are more keepsakes displayed to remember. A few of these items I have had for over 20 years...
I sure love how this room came together and hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit into my home. Thanks for stopping by!
