For the kid’s rooms, I try to make them a bit of a collaboration. I want their spaces to reflect who they are and give them some control in the decision making process. For my daughter’s new room she asked for pink and for art, because those things make her wonderfully happy. We rounded up all the pink chairs and I let her go to town painting her first ever mural above her bed. We partnered with The Land of Nod for all the cute kid bedroom things and the result is a sweet space my budding artist adores.
Be prepared for pink. Lots of pink!
Because the twins (now 7!) are at that age somewhere between kid stuff and bigger kid stuff – I tried to keep the substantial pieces ones that can grow with them. While adding lots of youthful fun in the simple details of the space. Pink, on pink, on pink. HA! It’s my little girl’s dream.
She wanted to paint a flower tree over her bed, so we took cues from this adorable bedding and I let her have the paint brushes. It is so sweet to see how proud she is of her own work and how excited she gets to show friends who come by.
Since her room is the smallest in the house, we worked to make the space really feel like home for her. The closet was widened to fit her dresser freeing up more floor space for dolls and playtime. A lamp resting on our favorite reading bench and a comfy flamingo resting under her own artwork makes a reading corner that feels cozy and completely accessible to kid sized hands.
Lastly the chair wall. We ordered 3 different hot pink chairs to set under the window – it has become a conversation spot when friends are over, school chairs for her favorite dolls, and a perfect way to make a very pink fort on a Saturday night. This room was so much fun to pull together with my pink loving, art making girl.
