I wanted to share with you some more images of Amelia’s bedroom that didn’t get in the Design Sponge feature. When moving to our home in 2014 her favorite color was blue and we decided, let’s paint her bedroom in honor of her favorite things! We wanted her room to have a vintage eclectic feel with some whimsy accents.
So, what to do when needing inspiration? I scoured Pinterest for some ideas, of course, and I found Lay Baby Lay’s shared bedroom post. This feature was a HUGE source of inspiration for me. Joni’s magical styling touches were filled with just the right amount of quirkiness, yet felt cohesive and relatable. I was initially looking for a blue paint, but Joni used the color Lido Green from Benjamin Moore. And yes, it is “technically” a green, but it had enough hints of blue that we all fell in love. The color is neutral enough that she can grow and change her style and the walls will complement that.
Amelia’s room is so bright and cheery and it brings a smile to my face on most days (when it’s clean that is:). Check out some pictures.
The iron bed frame is a vintage item passed on to us from a family friend. The neutral black and gray rug and white curtains ground the room, while the buffalo check fabric curtain adds a bit of personality. We kept the original glass shade for her ceiling light, but replaced the fixture with a natural brass Satellite Surface Mount from Schoolhouse Electric.
Amelia’s 3rd birthday was dinosaur themed and we hung on to the Triceratops print we personalized on Etsy to hang above her bed. The snow dog banner came from her 4th birthday party. I am sensing a theme ;)
Amelia loves to read, so we wanted to create a shelving system that would grow with her. And since we have so many books, we have a cute pail for overflow. The Eames Style rocking chair has been in her room since she was a teeny tot and I hope to keep it that way :).
Her dresser is a vintage piece I found on the street (yup, that happens here). Treasures can be found pretty much anywhere in Portland. The Pom Banner came from leftovers from a Shop Sweet Lulu Party at the ALT Summit. And the mixed art fills the room with inspirational quotes and whimy vibes that can be easily changed out as she grows.
That’s a kids room wrap guys! I hope you enjoyed the insider view of Amelia’s room. She sure knows how to have fun in it! How are you decorating your kids room? Is blue a color you are thinking about?
