Lakeshore Girl's Room

Designing a great kid's room is all about creating a space that celebrates childhood while being sophisticated enough for the room to transition as the kid grows. With this project, we started with a tract home. It's well-built and beautiful, but felt a little vanilla. By changing the color and swapping out the light fixtures, it instantly gave the space a lot of personality. It reminded me of when I was designing our own daughter's nursery

AFTER

Our client came to us with an unconventional request and wanted her daughter's room to be painted in a soft blue. We used that color to tone down of a very soft and feminine color palette. 

The floral fabric used in the throw pillows brighten up the soft, muted palette with a little more saturated saturated colors. Instead of layering another floral print or linen pillow, used a hand-woven pillow to add dimension and texture. We love how the pillow is pieced together with unique fabric and tassel details. 

We made a custom headboard and upholstered it in purple, her daughter's favorite color. It's a bold choice, but works.

With a lot of colors in the room, we wanted to break up the palette with a neutral nightstand. The combination of a clean white and beautiful wood tone in the Bree side table added the warmth we were looking for. The Elsie table lamp's subtle blush color and sophisticated silhouette makes it a piece that'll easy transition with her as she grows. 

The mirror was just such a stunning, fun shape that we wanted to use it as a focal point and use it to tie in the other metallic accents in the room.

We balanced the floral fabric by pairing it with something more graphic. We found this bold black and white Love Notes print with the sweetest message on it. It had a nice modern feel to it without being too loud.
