Being a designer, it is always my house I design last. My house projects end up taking SOOOOO long and Zoey's toddler bedroom was no exception. BUT. It was so worth the wait, the time, the decisions, the shopping and the DIY.
My vision for her big girl room was pretty clear in my head. I decided that since we live in Miami and since I have a fiery and bold little girl, I wanted her room to represent both. Inspired by Wynwood Walls and the incredibly gorgeous nature in Miami, her bedroom is such a perfect representation of where we live, what we love and why taking risks pays off ;)
I am not much of a DIYer but I decided to tackle the paint design myself. I knew I wanted bold colors, representing what we lucky South Floridians get to see every single day. I also knew I wanted geometry. Geometric patterns in rooms is all the rage so I figured I should jump on this design bandwagon. Plus, it's paint and SUPER easy to change if Zoey ever gets sick of it. And by Zoey I mean me.
Another priority for me was to ensure I executed this project as cost neutral as possible. So that meant selling her old baby furniture, reusing pieces that would work in the space and getting creative with space planning. Happy to report I designed this space for just about $300 or so net, after selling and reusing (and hitting up IKEA and Target to offset my Land of Nod and Pottery Barn purchases!!). While I like new things, my style for sure is new meets old and ensuring my house is filled with things that have meaning, tell a story and evoke an emotion.
Without further ado, I bring to you Zoey's Miami inspired toddler bedroom!
