This whimsical girls bedroom belongs to Irene who is 12 years old. She shares the room with her sister Olivia (16). Irene lives with her big family in a modernist flat in the centre of Barcelona, Spain. The girls’ bedroom was decorated by their mum Carina, a stylist and graphic designer who has recently co-founded xo-in my room, a blog and webshop focused on kids furniture (see previous post).
Carina’s best advice for decorating children’s rooms: “Let your children participate. Ask them what they like, as their tastes show their personality.”
