Bright and Fun Shared Room


With babe #4 on the way, I needed to pair up two of my daughters! I wanted something fun, cheery, bright, and inviting.

Design Inspiration

Pattern! After winning a contest for $250 worth of stencils from the Royal Design Studio for the project I did in my living room, I was anxious to look for pattern inspiration for the girls' room. I wanted something fun and eclectic. Loved the idea of mixing something modern like chevron with something dainty and pristine like lace.

Decorating Style

Every room deserves a touch a whimsy! Whether it's a formal living space or a child's bedroom.  So I guess I'd say I have a whimsical sense of decorating. I tend to go with whatever my eyes love, with no set "style" in mind. Although I've always been a fan of the juxtaposition of styles. Love mixing things! Modern and vintage! Something rustic with something formal/glitzy! It's always a treat for the eyes when styles are combined.

Project Details

I stenciled the wall with a stencil from Royal Design Studio. The other DIY was the twin head/foot boards that were once mine and my sister's. I sanded and painted those and added the chevron stencil from same company. All of the art is a mixture of things- some from Etsy, some original art from friends, framed my youngest's birth announcement, bird house is from Hobby Lobby. Letter "R" is from Anthropologie, the Starry Night in the bottom left was actually done by my husband as a child. My mom made the drapes. Shelves for the books are from Ikea. "Read" sign above shelves I made by wrapping colorful yarn around letters in fun fonts I found at Hobby Lobby. Bird cage and fun lamp from Home Goods. Bedding from Pottery Barn Teen.
