Exquisite Children's Rooms








I love these exquisite children's rooms above by Serena & Lily. I am currently working on a few children's bedrooms and after seeing these rooms above I feel like redecorating my 4 year old son's bedroom. I love the top boy's bedroom in particular.

**Further to Maryam's request for me to give a styling tip to create similar bed linen to that above I often purchase just very plain white doona covers and then I ask my embroidery lady to do a little design on the bedlinen in the appropriate colours in order to personalise the bed linen for my clients making it very unique to them. Another idea is to have your initials monogrammed onto the bed linen or lately I have even been having my workroom sew grosgrain ribbon around the edges again in the appropriate colours to the rooms I decorate. Hope these tips are helpful!! I am open to questions always so please don't hesitate in asking me as I would always love to give you my advice!

wowza. I love the first pic, esp and the one with the white shelves on the pink walls. Can you give us some styling tips so we can recreate the bedding?

Hi Maryam,
Sometimes what I do is I have my embroidery lady do a little embroidery design on white bed linen and it looks amazing and it just personalises the bedding for the child or the adult as I have done it for adult's bed linen too. I am not a fan of heavy bedspreads to this just customises a simple white doona cover for the client. Thanks for asking!!

Exquisite indeed! I've actually been thinking about children's rooms lately as I want to redo my son's and my sister is excepting another baby! I just love the photos!! Thanks Anna!

Anna said...

That's wonderful Ronda - I would love to redecorate my son's room too but I will have to wait a while to redo his bedroom!! I just have to enjoy all the other children's bedrooms I am doing at the moment!! How exciting a new little bundle arriving in the family!! That makes me very clucky!! Thanks again!

Like Maryam, I like the white shelves against the deep pink walls and aqua ladder :)

Before my son turned 13 and I could do whatever I wanted to do in his room, I had a old worn picket fence for waincoating. I hand tree branches for curtain rods, and hung different bits of vintage fishing gear off of classroom cloak rail. I loved his room, with his tree stump nightstand and buckets filled with books.
His duvet cover was small red check linen, with vintage patchwork of handkerchiefs for bedsheets!

Love how the aqua ladder matches the bedding. I REALLY like the end table/console that is pink in the third (I think) photo. What a converstation piece! The pale yellow bedding and white bed in the first photo is serene and sweet. You've outdone yourself with this post, A.

Anna said...
