I’ve been asked about how to create a bedroom that has a “homemade feel” about it. Unless you’re a sewing genius and can weave you’re own linen and rugs, It might be best to buy some bright coloured pieces and accent them with accessories that are hand made. This can be done by attending markets, asking your nanna to crochet or knit a blanket or cushions. Got to a charity store and revive it and most importantly use your kids artworks to give a personal touch and sense of ownership over the styling.
REMEMBER: This is your children’s room, their sanctuary and its important to reflect what your child is into, not what YOU would like the room to be. But in this case all party’s were happy.

|Kids love being able to stash trinkets or craft. This little draw set also transforms into a doll house extension as another use.|
|Bed linen by hiccups (linenhouse) I used this one because of the way the flowers are drawn. Ella draws them exactly the same way. plus she’s really into ballet. Win win!|
|Kids artworks in coloured frames by outliving (available at www.pillowtalk.com.au)|
|My mum found this for Ella, its a great little basket for stashing small “I can’t be without” items AND it looks great with any outfit and suites her room perfectly.|
|My Brother made this doll house for Ella. We are going to decorate it together. She pays with it all the time.|
|LOVE those flower designs. Now that the room is finished. Watch the creativity unfold!|
If you have any design questions I’m happy to help out. Happy decorating!!!
