Today I’m happy to share some photos of a recently completed interior design for a girl’s room. Lola’s parents called in my help when they moved house and were struggling to come up with ideas for their girls’ bedrooms. They wanted the rooms to have a similar feel and fit in with the rest of the house, yet have their own identity. After some brainstorming and moodboarding, we opted for a soft grey-based style with pink and vintage accents. This is the result for Lola’s room – I will share her sister’s room a little later.
Lola’s room is made up of soft tonal greys with pink and blush accents. Most of the furniture is white but we added warmth with some natural timber. The two-tone curtains add a playful touch and tie the scheme together. The floral feature wall with bespoke alcove shelving is centred around a period fireplace. Lola’s grandmother painted the dollshouse that Lola already had in tones to go with the colour scheme and we added matching wallpaper inside. Vintage apple crates on castors provide characterful storage for toys and assorted decorative boxes keep less pretty belongings out of sight.
Between the windows with two-tone curtains we added a vintage style school desk and a house shaped trinket shelf. A simple wall sconce provides task light when Lola sits down to do her crafting. Next to that we created a snug reading corner in a teepee with cushions and a sheepskin rug. The pretty vintage wardrobe was sourced online and painted, to hold all of Lola’s clothes and shoes.
To bring the room’s scale down a little, we used a four poster bed with a ledge for pictures and books to create a snug nook for bedtime. A bedside stool, fairy lights and a reading lamp complete this corner.
