It's not time yet for me to start moving Penny into a big girl bed/room, but here at DSI, we have been exploring a few options to share with you. This is for design-minded parents who want their kids to have a kid-friendly and creativity or comfort-inducing room but one which they'd happily spend the money on (read: not a cartoon-themed room).
Our creative juices really got flowing when we feasted our eyes on the Emily & Meritt for Pottery Barn Kids collection. Pink (check!), black & white (check!) and bows (oh my! and check!).
Inspired by these designs, I started to explore potential room designs for Penny's next room. In her short life so far (2 years) she's already had two rooms and both have been based around my fave palette: pink, black and white, magenta and stripes.
Her Current Room
I am not opposed to the next iteration of her room following suit, but I did explore two moods that do try to diverge from this palette.
So, as I said, Penny isn't quite ready for the transition, but the day will come and I'd like to start shaping that plan. So, we're sharing two mood boards below (and at the end of this email another version with links to all resources we've included).
Now, these may be a little too adult for you. But, I think with a few handmade pieces of your child's art hanging and some shoes kicked off on the floor, it could be feeling like a kid lives in there in no time at all!
How do you guys feel about little kids rooms that aren't too theme-y? Let's continue the conversation over on Instagram!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you soon!
We wanted to be sure to give you all the sources we've included but didn't want to ruin the above moods with those pesky markers so we've added the moods again below, but with links to sources, for your convenience!
