Well, the day has finally come that Little Miss has agreed her room is ‘finished enough’ to share! I’d normally say the makeover is ‘complete,’ but nothing with my little creator is ever complete!
While the accessories are bold, we kept the core of the room classic so it will easily grow and transition with her. We stumbled on this Jonathan Adler fabric a few years ago, and knew the mix of colors would be so fun for pulling everything together. We had just enough for drapes, and had them made from a local tailor (they are much more affordable than custom upholstery and drapery companies!), using these RITVA panels as lining.
Two years ago we created a study area in a nook just outside her room (see it here)…but she quickly outgrew that little desk, and needed more privacy…so now she has a larger, sturdier space for all her homework and creative sessions.
The gallery wall is a collection of her own artwork! Most pieces are just tacked up so she can swap them out as new masterpieces are created. I love the bright white walls to allow her artwork to pop, and the blue ceiling accents the tall pitched shaped.
She feels very official in her tall desk chair, plus it’s comfy for long sessions at her desk. Middle School is serious, y’all! The HEKTAR task lamp also includes a USB port, so she can charge devices at her desk without extra outlets.
We scoured the internet for desks, and ultimately loved the flexibility of building our own. The LIMMNON comes in a variety of sizes and combinations, and is surprisingly sturdy! You can customize the top and legs, and even add drawers!
Her bathroom has the same white walls, and the cabinets mirror the blue of her ceiling.
She loves collecting treasures, and this little wall shelf is perfect for keeping them corralled.
