What inspired you?
To create a warm, loving room we used things we shared a past with, that were saved (and in the case of the bed and ‘commode’ even made), by our parents and grandparents, from our own childhood, or family gifts.
We had little money when we moved in here and quickly had to make two kids’ rooms out of one. Also, we believe in earth-friendly, longtime solutions and recycling.The gorgeous wall colour was also a solution for the reappearing yellow stains of an old chimney leak. I work with vintage textiles and used some for decoration.
Follow your heart and use what you love. Don’t be too afraid of big furniture or bold colours in a small space. If you have a consistent colour scheme it will probably work out fine.
