Room Tour | Colourful shared kids room

Today I'm really excited to be sharing the results of a room makeover for one of my lovely clients.

Sarah, Mum to Eva and Izzy, originally approached me back in May to ask me to help her revamp her girls' shared bedroom. She already had some great pieces, including the enviable Ouef Perch Bunk Bed (available in Australia from Kido Store), a gorgeous heart garland and a colourful felt ball rug (for similar try Hard to Find) but Sarah was looking for ideas for how to pull the room together - on a budget! The girls had outgrown a lot of their toys and belongings and Sarah was keen for an inexpensive storage option to hold shoes and clothes and keep toys out of sight. 

The girls already had a purple feature wall painted in the room which they LOVED so this was the starting point for the colour palette, along with the bright colours from the garland and rug. Sarah had already bought a vintage frame that she wanted to paint and I suggested a magnetic chalkboard might work well, to hang artworks or certificates the girls got from school. Having art and awards on display gives kids a sense of pride and achievement and the chalkboard adds a fun element to the room. 

Here is the girls' room before: 

After meeting with Sarah and the girls and discussing what they all wanted I set to work on a design board and came up with the following ideas, which I presented her with a few days later.

Sarah was pleased with most of the ideas, although based on stock in shops and budget contraints, we went back and forth with ideas for a while. Sarah got to work purchasing the items and putting it all together and last week I went back to see the final room and take some photos. 

Sarah and the girls are thrilled with their new space which, in total, cost less than a few thousand dollars to create. A huge impact for very little investment. The space is far more functional and able to grow with the girls now they are starting school. 

Here are some photos of the end result:

I hope you've enjoyed this room reveal as much as I enjoyed putting it together. If you have a space you would like me to help you revamp (even if you have a very small budget), then head over to my design services page and see how we might be able to work together. 

Have a great day!
