I'm so excited to be sharing Summer & Claire's bedroom refresh! Confession - I always wanted a sister and dreamed of sharing a room with a cool older sibling. (Note: I have an older brother but he was never down for it! LOL)
When we got the news that baby #2 (Claire) was on the way, we of course set up a beautiful gender neutral nursery and made sure the girls both had their own beautiful spaces. Deep down I was dying to create a fun space for them to share. We kept the girls in their own rooms for quite some time, after all an 8 year age gap did mean that their sleep schedules were different and it just didn't feel like the right time.
When it came time to transition Claire out of her crib naturally she spent a lot of time sneaking into Summer's bed. The girls came to us and asked to have a shared room and I was OVER THE MOON!!! And of course I said yes!!!
My vision for their room was simple and timeless with touches of blush. My goal was to pick pieces that would grow with them and suit them with their 8 year age gap. Here are the details on my favourite items! First off... THE FOCUS WALL!
Finding a wallpaper brand wasn't hard. The hardest part was narrowing down my choices. Again, I wanted something timeless, simple and a print that could grow with the girls. The print featured in the girls' room is called "Grey Meadow Wildflower". The grey details on a simple white background made it perfect to pull in the white beds, blush accents and the black name cut outs popped perfectly! The Dreaded but EASY Install!
Jay & I were total wallpaper virgins before this! And I'm not gonna lie we were definitely scared to try the traditional wallpaper on such an important project! Livette's included easy clear instructions. We unrolled the panels and laid them flat as we prepped our space by moving furniture and making sure the wall was clean. We popped over to the hardware store and grabbed a couple supplies (adhesive & a flattening tool - of course I don't know what its call LOL). Then it was back home to start the first panel!
The first panel is easy peeezy! The second piece made us sweat a little! We were so worried about how much adhesive to use and making sure the pattern was lined up just right. We quickly realized that that you can be liberal with the glue, the excess will be pressed out when you use your smoothing tools. We also were nose to the wall inspecting the pattern to make sure it matched... take a couple steps back, and look at the big picture. I promise this helps! Each piece went quicker and quicker and the whole project took us under an hour! And the final result was just beautiful!!!
Overall, the things I love about our Livette's wallpaper is the quality, style, easy install. The paper is the perfect thick texture and really adds such a wow factor to any space. All the Livette's patterns are so modern and really add a wow factor to any room. I can't wait to wallpaper another space in our home! This post is not sponsored however Livette's did gift us the wallpaper for our project!
