ORC Week 1: Shared Kids’ Room Plans

ORC Week 1: Shared Kids’ Room Plans

I am a first time linking participant in this round of the One Room Challenge. If you’re not familiar, it’s a biannual event hosted by Calling It Home, where design bloggers make over a space in six weeks, sharing weekly updates. I’ve been following it forever, harbouring mild envy at what people are able to achieve, and soaking up all the gorgeous inspiration too, of course. It’s very exciting to be settled enough now to be able to join in!… View Post

Sneak Peek: Sebastian’s Room

Sneak Peek: Sebastian’s Room

Sebastian’s room sits on the top story of our three-level home. It’s the only bedroom with an en suite, but it’s a bit of a funky shape – long and narrow – so it wouldn’t work as the master. Lucky boy! It took a few months to nail down the layout, but I think I’ve finally cracked it. I want the kids to potentially be able to share this room if/when they stop terrorizing each other so much, and it… View Post

Organizing the Big Boy Room

Organizing the Big Boy Room

When we moved from loft #1 to loft #2, we pretty much transported everything from Sebastian’s bedroom from one place to the other, even down to the paint colour. The new room was a similar size with the same concrete ceilings and pillars, except this one had windows (the first was an enclosed loft room) and hardwood floors. There was one other difference though – I organized the beejesus out of this one. Hurrah. Check out the closet. All the… View Post

Eleanor’s Loft Nursery: Mood Board to Real …

Eleanor’s Loft Nursery: Mood Board to Real Room

I love seeing how mood boards and design plans come to fruition, and Eleanor’s loft nursery came a long way from my original design. REVISION 1 I started working on it while I was pregnant, and I was so excited about having a girl. I went all-out girly girl – ruffles included! The fabric had me at hello when I saw it in Emily’s gorgeous nursery. I went through a couple of different variations on the theme, trying to use… View Post

How To Create A Polka Dot Wall (Quickly)

How To Create A Polka Dot Wall (Quickly)

The polka dot wall was one of my favourite parts of Eleanor’s old nursery. It took me less than two hours and it had such a big impact on the room. I used these gold dot decals from Land of Nod, but I know you can also find similar ones on Etsy and they’d be easy to make with a Silhouette or a Cricut. I used three sets to cover about 75 sq feet of wall space, so it ended… View Post

Eleanor’s Loft Nursery Reveal

Eleanor’s Loft Nursery Reveal

It’s time to play catch up here and show y’all how far I got with our loft before we moved. Here’s is Eleanor’s little nursery… When I say little, I’m talking 8′ x 9′. It took me weeks to figure out how to fit everything in. We originally had a double-wide dresser which made the whole thing a real squeeze. In the end, we sold it and bought a smaller one. You can probably figure it out from the photos,… View Post

The scheme is… View Post

Mood Board Collective | Lilac & Green

Mood Board Collective | Lilac & Green

Lovely lavender is the collective inspiration for this month’s mood board challenge, where several interiors bloggers take the same starting point and use it to create a mood board for any space they want to dream up. Soft blue and green complement the lilac in the lavender – such a pretty colour palette. As a result, we’ve got some very pretty room designs on show. Emmerson & Fifteenth | Living Room Mood Board I decided to do a renter-friendly living… View Post
