Summer Style | Kids Rooms

I love designing children's rooms as there really are no rules. You can be a little more adventurous than you would be in other rooms in your home.

I tend to stick to a colour palette of about three or so colours and also try and select one or two 'hero' pieces that I can work the rest of the room around.

I designed a moodboard for Ellery last week after she came into the MintSix shop and chose the Kip & Co pretzels quilt set for Christmas.

She has one chalkboard wall, three white walls, a white floor & white Luxaflex blinds so a relatively blank canvas to work with which always helps.

I started by including her existing furniture & favourite items and then used some things that will go onto the wish list.

  1. Incy Interiors Bed in Yellow $990 I've just scored a headboard from the Op Shop that I'll spray yellow (kinder on the wallet)but I do love these beds!
  2. Kip & Co Pretzels Quilt & Pillow Set $219
  3. Pony Rider Swiss Alps Wall Dot $89
  4. HK Living Yellow Desk Lamp (Available soon at MintSix)
  5. Emotions Vases $130
  6. Nynne Rosenvinge Mountains Print A4 $35
  7. Bonnie & Neil Cockatoo Placemat (Used on wall)
