Design Board & Plans for Eleanor’s Bedroom

I have a plan! Here’s what I’m going for in Eleanor’s new bedroom…
Fabric for drapes – Robert Allen // Tallboy – Laura Ashley
Bedding – M&S // Coral fabric for bed – Tonic Living
Fierce print – Makewells on Etsy // Abstract print – Minted
Desk lamp – Loaf // Mermaid print – Alison Keefe // Lamp base – vintage
Lamp shade – PB Teen // Rug – PB Teen // Bin – Target
Vase – Anthropologie // Bookcase – Ikea (image source)
I originally had a different design in mind (see my last post), but it was being driven too much by trying to be cheap and keep what we already had, and I wasn’t really loving how it was coming together. Then I found this fabric for the curtains, and it became my inspiration for a whole new room design:

It’s still got the coral, lilac and aqua in that I was going to use anyway, but now there’s citrine in the mix too. I love Chinoiserie and had been wanting to add more of it to our home. Eleanor’s little bedroom has a big window, and it will make a big statement in there.

I want to reupholster a basic bed frame in a solid coral fabric, and I’ve already got the bedding. It’s hard to see the detail here, but it’s pretty gray stars.

The Kallax and the tallboy dresser (bought on eBay) replaced her old furniture because they fit the room’s layout much better. Speaking of which, here it is:

There needed to be space for toys, books and clothes. Because there’s no wardrobe/closet, I’m going to hack the Kallax and add a rail for hanging her many princess dresses. And there are more gold dots, but they’re different to the ones she had in her nursery. We put them up a few days ago, and they’re like an explosion in the corner over the bed head. Eleanor loves them. I’ll share the progress so far if I ever get around to dusting off my camera and taking some photos. Exciting stuff.
