Maison Ellie Interiors

Maison Ellie is an interiors studio specializing in beautiful and functional spaces for the little ones in your life.

Rebecca has had a natural talent and passion for interior design from a very young age. Following the birth of her children, she realized that her creativity was best channeled by designing and styling spaces for little ones. And so came to life her interiors studio, Maison Ellie.

Her bright and natural aesthetic is layered with texture and eclectic flare. She designs rooms that are both approachable and functional for the little one using it, while equally stylish and beautiful for the whole family to enjoy. Each space is packed with uniquely curated touches aimed to reflect the child's personality and equipped to grow with them for years to come.

Coastal Nursery with Stunning Paper Boat Wallpaper

This nursery was in dire need of brightness, function and FUN! My Clients already had so many great pieces, but they just weren’t working together cohesively.
We completely transformed the space by freshening up the wall colour, installing this wonderful paper boat wallpaper and selecting additional furniture and accessories that would really pull together a bright coastal vibe. The room now has a beautiful bookcase to display and store toys and accessories, a fun acrylic book ledge library, some large toy bins and tons of textural wall decor pieces, like the incredible blue ombre Lorena Canals wall hanging. The Captain art print really adds a nice pop of colour to the crisp white walls. We added a swan paper mobile above the crib, and I love how it floats gracefully in front of the wallpaper. Also, the various shades of blue that were sourced for the space add so much depth and tonality, seen in the adorable pehr cushion, narwhal crib sheet, light blue cushion in stitched Ellen Degeneres fabric and lamb knit doll.
Simplicity is always best conveyed when designing a space with purpose, and that’s just what we did. The result? A delicately coastal room that is calming, serene and perfectly practical for its’ sweet little resident.

Modern Playroom with Pops of Color!

This project was one that came together so seamlessly! The starting point was definitely this incredible Sandberg wallpaper, which sets the vibe for the entire space. I wanted to keep a strong ‘tone on tone’ colour direction with tons of white and grey, but loved the idea of juxtaposing it with hints of rattan and pops of warm colours.
We went with a very light ‘abc’ theme by adding in some fun artwork, a machine washable rug from Lorena Canals and a fun book library on display for easy access. From a functional perspective, we did a full wall of toy storage using IKEA units. I love these particular ones because the various bins make it so easy to keep toys neatly organized. We also wanted to set the boys up with a nice workspace area that they could grow into with this wonderful table and spindle chairs from Pottery Barn Kids. We even added in a fun blackboard to spark creativity! This space is now a laid-back and inviting room the entire family can enjoy together; it’s as easy as A, B, C.

Modern Playroom with Rainbow Decals

It seems as though children’s interests change every week, right? Well over the course of the last few months, I was finding that our play time had become less focused and somewhat chaotic. So I decided it was time to take a closer look at the function of our playroom. It all started by rotating some toys out of our repertoire, which we try to do every 6 to 9 months. This allows us to highlight toys that will keep the kids more motivated to learn, explore and play in every stage of their development!
We have a fairly large basement which now functions a million times better for us, thanks to a few space planning tweaks and designated zones; a ‘chef’ nook complete with a pantry shelf for food storage, an activity table for drawing and tea parties, a dreamy camp-out tent and simple storage for books and select toys. We keep puzzles, blocks, art supplies and larger plastic toys neatly put away in a wardrobe the kids can access at any time.
A muted colour palette with some pops of light wood tones is what I envisioned for this space, so am really loving the overall bright yet warm vibe. I worked with most of the pieces we already had and simply added a few unique decor elements to create a more cohesive look. I love the gorgeous lemon, pear and rainbow art prints from Pretty in Print, they are the perfect addition to our little kitchen area! The fun lion head wall hanging brings so much texture to the room. And I just love how these beautiful rainbow wall decals totally transformed the room into an a dreamy space for my little ones! We’re ‘over the rainbow’ about it all…

An Adventurous Boy Room with Stunning Jungle Wallpaper!

It was time to transition this four year old into a big boy bed, so we jumped at the opportunity to completely transform the room into an adventurous haven. It all started with this wonderful jungle land mural from Rebel Walls which adds tons of impact while staying true to the rooms’ soft colour palette. It was so wonderful to collaborate with them on this project, and it turned out better than I could have imagined.
I wanted to keep the room fairly soft in terms of a colour palette, so introduced some variations of blues and green to complement the wallpaper. Lots of birch wood tones and black accents add lots on contrast and texture. Instead of a traditional area rug, we opted for a long runner placed along the side of his bed. We added a beautiful custom illustrated print above the bed from the very talented Gabriella Galvez, a work area for lego, colouring and eventually homework, black metal book ledges that create a focal feature wall, and a special wooden chest to keep little treasures and collectibles close at hand. This room has quickly become a fan favourite in the house, especially for its’ little jungle king!

Bright & Whimsical Woodland Girl Nursery

A whimsical nursery fit for a queen!
The starting point for this project was evidently the stunning forest friend wallpaper. It’s bold, yet soft and fun, and helps to create a focal point in this bright space. We paired the wall mural with a beautiful textural blush pink rug which blends in so nicely with the crisp white flooring. We wanted to select a pendant that helped make a statement but still had nice round lines; this stunning egg-shaped pendant in aged brass is the perfect fit.
We layered in lots of soft pink, mint and neutral colours through a beautiful collection of accents, books, textiles and toys. One of my favourite decor features are the paper mâché animal heads, which are the perfect match for the wallpaper! We also glamed up the white IKEA dresser with some fun knobs from Anthropologie, which really elevate the look of the dresser. Lastly, we brought in some wood tones with the armchair, blanket ladder and storage bins, to act as a contrast against the homes’ wonderful white flooring.
This adorable space is filled with a beautiful sense of calm, I just love how it turned out.

‘Glitter All Day’ Holiday Nursery

The sweetest pink nursery, all glamed up for the holidays!
Sourcing lovely festive items for this nursery was as simple as pie. It was just a matter of adding in a few shiny things to glam it up! It turned out to be quite a magical space in our home. Far from being traditional, it’s just perfect for my little girl.
My favourite part about styling her room was setting up this mini tree from Canadian Tire. It has fairly sturdy branches, so hanging heavier ornaments on it was a breeze. I filled it with vintage ornaments from my childhood. There is something beyond special about sharing pieces of your history with your children. My daughter is still barely 2, but one day I know she’ll love hearing about how I had a similar Christmas tree in my room growing up. I did pick up a few new additions, like a felt swan and pink ballet slippers from HomeSense, and these beautiful mini rose gold baubles. Instead of a star on top of the tree, I used one of her velvet hair clips. Legit so cute.
We usually hang headbands and hats on the hooks above her dresser, but I decided to switch these out with shimmery ornaments she can look up at while being dressed. And lucky for me, they are still out of reach! I saw this wool-woven tree at HomeSense in the most beautiful soft green colour, so added it to her shelf for a pop of texture.
This amazing bottle brush tree set from Indigo included a few pink and mauve coloured trees, for just the right amount of glitz. We updated her light box with a festive saying and perched a beautiful whitewashed nutcracker up on her floating shelves. And how sweet is this vintage car ornament? Some new board books for bedtime stories were the perfect finishing touch.
I just love how cheerful and sweet the rooms feels with these small and simple additions! I think I’ll have a hard time putting everything away in January, can bottle brush trees stay out year round?
