A Colorful "Big Girl Room" for Violette

Name: Violette (3)
Location: Newbury, Berkshire, United Kingdom

My little girl is turning 3 in April, and it was time for a real big girl bedroom. The room is teeny tiny, so it was definitely a challenge! I wanted the room to be kid-friendly yet elegant and timeless, with plenty of colours.

My first move was to place her bed in the centre of the room, to make it a nice focal point. I designed and made a colourful bedskirt and matching pillow, and also used the same fabric in the frames above her bed. The coral outdoor rug is perfect in that room, as it's very kid-friendly. The oak shelves bring some warmth while adding a lot of storage. I completed the look with simple blackout white curtains and blinds for a good night sleep!

She's very proud of her room, and it means the world to me!
