HOLLY'S ROOM

I like my new wallpaper because it’s exciting and makes me feel happy. It’s tidier with a basket for toys and my new wardrobes fit all my clothes and toys.
— Holly (6)

Holly's parents asked for my help to design a more grown up room for Holly who has just turned 6.  Whilst a good sized room with lots of light, the room lacked storage, felt cluttered and the layout meant there was very limited floor space for Holly to play.  The decor was in need of updating and whilst Holly loves colour (pinks,  purples and greens), mum and dad still wanted to retain a classic scheme in keeping with the rest of their home.  

We chose the Cole & Son Punchinello wallpaper in muted pastel tones which brings lots of pretty colours into the room without being over the top and kept two of the walls in ivory to give the room a relaxed vibe.  We kept her existing Great Little Trading Company bed and desk as they were recent purchases, but replaced her freestanding wardrobe and drawers with built in storage under the eaves to maximise space.

To improve the layout, we moved the bed against the far wall to maximise floor space, and moved the desk against a wall so Holly can utilise the wall space above it to display her arts and crafts.  We then accessorised with lots of pink, and of course unicorns and mermaids to create Holly's dream room.

Watch out for images of the completed room coming soon on my blog... 

 
Mel recently designed my 6 year old daughter’s bedroom. We went for the e-design and room visuals service. She made the process straightforward and enjoyable. Mel introduced us to so many possibilities of designs and room accessories that we would not have discovered on our own. We felt it was a two-way process in coming up with the end design which was what we wanted. Mel was efficient and worked at our pace. She even kept us informed with discounts and stock changes with the products selected. It has been nice to have a guided hand in the design process in which I have learnt a lot to help design other rooms in the house. We are looking forward to seeing the final result in a few weeks time. I have no hesitation in recommending Mel and feel her service is cost effective in the long-run due to her experience in helping achieve the design.
