KID'S BEDROOM MAKEOVER
FROM DINGY TO DREAMY
When I found out I was having twin girls, we had to do some quick thinking to create a bedroom that would comfortably fit two children in a single, small space!
It was all about curves! Sharp corners in a small space is instantly uncomfortable, whereas soft curves work to calm the mind the moment you enter. Especially when you need to fit quite a bit in a small space.
Here's how we did it:
A soft colour scheme (wall colour is Dulux Sandy Day) coupled with symmetry worked together to create a calming space
We chose to buy the Leander cots as I thought they converted into the nicest looking junior beds in the market - and the curved edges again helped to fit more in!
I also designed a circular floor-rug - which my wonderful mother crocheted for me. It's lasted seven years for us now and is still going strong! If you want one - send me an email via our contact page!
Tip: White looks like a silly idea, but this rug is easy to throw in the wash - and you can always bleach it if you need to.
Soft colours and small scale works beautifully when space is tight
Built-in wardrobes are the best use of space and can be configured exactly to your needs
