sunlit woods


The project was to create a happy space for a little girl who loves birds and animals.

Design Inspiration

I started of with a birdcage which I painted Pink and then started designing the wall decals of animals and birds to bring the room to life. 

Decorating Style

Whimsical, fun and bohemian.

Project Details

The bed and bedside table were custom made by a local carpenter. I created the wall decals and printed them at a local printer. The green lamp and wicker baskets are from Ikea. The trunks and the armoire are vintage pieces which have been souped up. The curtains are pink cordruoy. The tie backs and toybox were all handicrafted.

Favorite Items

I love the birdcage and the old trunks!


I usually like to begin any project with one or two inspirational pieces and then work the other elements in to create a cohesive whole. I also find it fun and challenging to work with old and new pieces and bring them together to create something beautiful yet thrifty. This way you can redecorate often!
