Helping folks design their children’s rooms is turning out to be one of my all-time favorite things to do! I’m thrilled to have had several opportunities lately to brighten up the lives of a few special children and it’s about time I shared all of the fun with you.
The Modern Farmhouse
This particular room was designed especially for a 4 year old girl and a baby boy who were going to start sharing a room. The mother wanted a farm theme and was considering paintings some rolling hills and blue skies on the walls. As soon as she mentioned her plan for the mural my thoughts drifted to this crazy cool rug from Ikea ($8). The rest of the room just sort of evolved from there. The Trofast storage piece makes a genius changing table and storage piece for the room and will grow with the kids changing from diapering and baby needs to toys down the road.
THE OLD FASHIONED FARMHOUSE
I created the second board just in case she had more of an old fashioned farmhouse feel in mind. The inspiration for this room — these sweetie pie sheets from Target ($40). The yellow fabric swatch on the left is for curtains and the fabric sampler on the right is for a one of a kind rag quilt I was planning to make myself.
Sadly, I never heard back from this mom. Not all of my free services are received with open arms, but sometimes they are! I’ll share all my source info for these two room boards next, and then show you another project that had a MUCH, MUCH happier ending! I shared these two boards because I thought someone out there might love them.
Which one is your personal favorite:
Modern or Old Fashioned Farmhouse?
