Rise and Shine
The yellow and grey roman blind fabric was the jumping off point for this little girl’s bedroom. Not only did it provide the colour scheme but it served as inspiration for the statement horizontal striped accent wall, which makes the small space feel larger. Strategically placed pops of yellow, from golden sunshine to mustard to softer pastel shades, energize the restful neutral-based room without making it look overly bright. The animal decor, origami wall art and colourful book spines add youthfulness to the sophisticated style, all of which can be easily swapped out with age for other accent pieces. The vintage bed holds particular significance as it’s a hand-me-down. After a fresh coat of paint, I adorned it with soft textured pillows in various shades of grey and a plush white quilt speckled with shimmery polka dots. Repeating the silver dots on the back of the revamped shelving unit lends continuity to the space. It also serves as the perfect backdrop to the playful decorative accessories. Who wouldn’t want to wake-up in this fun yet chic space!
