This sweet room makeover inspires creativity as well as a peaceful place to read a book or do a puzzle.

The Before

  • The color brown dominates the scene and lends to a feeling of a library rather than a little girl's room.
  • Her favorite doll and books are placed too high to easily get to.
  • There’s only seating for one, leaving no place for a friend to play.
  • The oversized plaid bag is beautiful but perhaps too mature for the space and coordinates with nothing.
  • There's a lack of indirect lighting for bedtime stories or general "warmth.”

The After

  • Who says you can't leave cabinet doors open? Open doors in this case can create an inviting area. It welcomes children to discover what's inside and creates a perfect space to drape a bright blanket to cozy up with.
  • We stacked books vertically and horizontally in color blocking which is esthetically pleasing..
  • Children are extremely tactile so we added two additional rugs to the space to create visual interest and ensure many satisfying hours of reading and play.
  • An abundance of oversized pillows not only brings more shades of pink into the room but offers different comfortable options for friends to cuddle up and play.
  • The world globe provides warm pink hued light, especially at night, while it can simultaneously be used as an educational tool.
  • Plush toys don't have to be stored away. Create a home for a few of your child's plush friends to create a focal point in the decor that provides character to a scene such as this.
