Oh Eight Oh Nine
My daughter who just turned 8 has been requesting an update to her room -she’s had the same set up since age 5 so it’s time. Her taste and interests have changed.
Our changes will have to be in the details, because we won’t make any major furnishing changes, and we just painted about 3 years ago -and it’s in perfect condition. I also invested in high quality shades and curtains.
There are new fun ways to update the look without getting rid of the big investment pieces.
1. Add a High Quality Poster or Photo that Changes the Mood
Interior Philosophy gets this look right.
2. Change Those Drapes!
I am loving these Boho style Pom Pom curtains…..from Susie Watson Designs + Serena & Lily
3. Add Throw Pillows that Say Fun!
Zazzle, Aelfie, + Plusheez
4. Add Sheepskin for Cozy Style
Hello! Welcome to part 2 of our popular curated by kids decor series! This is a fun collaborative effort by Rosalina, her daughters, and a occassionally random group of neighborhood kids, mostly girls age 5-12. We noticed that if something seems magical or fantastical it’s a winner. Case in point, a rabbit leaping over a mountain in gorgeous graphic wallpaper in the sweetest of muted pinks, or an eyelashed pillow….or even a pear dollhouse…

Yellow is a unifying color and brings these patterns together beautifully. Not a lover of pinks? Not a problem. The blossom duvet is classic and on trend. Mix and match styles, like this eclectic white bed with retro floral designs. Image courtesy of Serena and Lily.

MyLove Affair with Swans
I never really thought about swans -as a decorative element, or a favorite animal until my daughter requested a stuffed swan for her birthday -and I was astounded by how hard it was to find a nicely made one -I had to order one from Germany. I realized in fact they were the perfect bird for the animal crazy primary schooler -and they can add a touch of sophistication and the vintage as well. I hope you will be absolutely inspired by this collection of beautiful artistic designs, antiques, and eclectic swan decor items.
Hanna Nyman, Sweden -Hanna is a paper artist who is worth knowing about. Check out her amazing Back to Poetry Instagram for more extra prettiness!
