This room is for the baby sister of the two boys who own this other room here. It was formerly their office slash storage space. But when they found out that another little one is on the way, it's time for a big change.
From burnt orange and dark browns to light blue and bright pink.
It's quite a small room so we have to make the most out of the space. Since the other closet in this room were used as an extended closet for mom and dad, we need to build another one for the baby, and that nook is the perfect space for it.
They already own this dresser so we just painted it to fit right into the rooms decor. I love the fabric I found for the curtains, it's a fun pink and lime paisley print that totally compliments the blue walls.
We replaced the closet doors with sliding ones and painted a decorative molding so it won't look too flat. I actually like to paint it lime to tie in with the curtain, but the client wanted the option to change curtains down the road and not worry if it will look good with the space. So we used the wall color to paint the faux molding. Still works! :)
That bed was from the other room before, and since they now have the new bunk beds, we just painted it pink and reused it here. We also used the matching side table but painted it a different color to avoid the matchy-matchy look.
The only new furniture here is this rocker chair. And no, its not a miniature, it just look so tiny beside the dresser. Haha..
Just some cuteness to make you smile.
What room of mine is complete without some sort of frame gallery? Haha.. No, I don't actually recommend it every single time to a client, they just so happen to like it and request to have them. Who am I to say no? :)
Baby photos, bright beach images, pages from children's book, pattern paper, and the baby's initials to personalized the room.
I'm sure by this time you are wondering.. "Where is the crib???" Well.. the client doesn't want to build the room around a crib 'coz it will not be a permanent feature. So we used the bed instead and made the future room of the little girl. :)
There you go, my very first kids' room. I wanted everything to be young looking and but not too overly childish that it would look silly when they grow older. In times like this where everyone is too busy to do room makeovers every now and then, I think this is the way to go to make sure the room will grow with the child.
'Til my next children's room.. :)
