Here’s something new I am starting on my Blog where I will be sharing some Before & After images of the rooms or houses I have completed as part of my Interior Design projects.
A really fun styling job I have completed recently was to transform a boring guest bedroom into a Nursery room. The room was for a 5-month old Boy, so I wanted to design a room that was a bit trendy and also something he can grow up in first few years.
The bedroom as it stood was filled with king size bedroom set and random furniture pieces, so I needed to buy everything new and for a kid-friendly room. This included a crib, bed for his nanny, mattresses, bedding, lights and window treatments. To achieve this, I sourced everything for the room from Pottery Barn and Home center. Pottery Barn kids store is the perfect place to find everything you need for kids bedroom.
So this was how the room started out. Below are the images of BEFORE guest bedroom:
When designing the room I put together a color palette of white, navy blue, yellow and grey. The colors, although not obviously ‘childlike’, had a fun, youthful but modern connotation when combined. Below is the initial mood board I created for the design concept. I chose grey wallpapers with borders for walls, so this color provided the base, while the grey works well with yellow and can be used to balance out this color so it wasn’t overpowering. I also did an accent wall right behind the crib with navy blue paint and white decal stickers of tree branches and birds.
I decided to go with White furniture because that automatically makes your room look neat and not bulky with a lot of furniture pieces. The opposite wall of the crib was the wall of storage units. As a growing kid there we many kinds of stuff and toys to be stored somewhere neatly. I also wanted to bring the birds from the decal sticker to the opposite wall so bought these flying bird decor from Pottery Barn.
The existing ceiling was very interesting with round design but had dark brown wooden borders which did not match my theme. So I decided to paint them white and put up a cloud patterned wallpaper on the round part making it look like the sky.
I also added a comfortable long armchair for the mother to relax while putting the baby off to sleep with yellow cushions and cushion with the personalized name of the baby.
Curtains were fairly simple with light grey chiffon and yellow velvet main giving it a very soft look. White pelmet box just finished the look of the window.
In addition to the room, I also customized a wooden cabinet in navy blue color under the wash basin in the attached toilet and accessorized with yellow decor flowers and candles.
So this was the final look! Let me know what you guys think? I will be sharing more on this segment of my blog.
