Sabrina's room is part of a gorgeous large rural estate with manicured gardens. Her room was in need of an overhaul as her mum wanted her to have a fresh room in time for high school next year. With hues of plum, gold and pink, the gorgeous room was transformed into a sugar plum wonder!
Before . . .
The existing room (see image right and below) had been created for Sabrina, now in year 6 at school, when she was quite young with fuchsia pink bed. The room also had a gorgeous golden toned wallpaper with a deep plum blossom design, white furniture and a swan pendant dropping in one corner. Sabrina's mum instructed us to create a complete overhaul and gave us the direction that everything could go except for the wallpaper and swans. There was also a plum faux rug that Sabrina had purchased for the bed which was an essential to be featured in the finished room. With these clear instructions, we created a design board (see below) so Sabrina and her mum could visualise the new look for the room before proceeding.
After . . .
With the blossom wallpaper and swan pendants remaining in the room, we worked on designing the space to highlight the deep plum and golden hues of the wallpaper. The fuchsia bed was a king single and both Sabrina and Nici wanted a new double bed as Sabrina had both grown out of the colour and bed size. Therefore, to transform this room, we replaced the bed, desk and bedside table and introduced more storage - which was essential to cater for Sabrina's collections. With the introduction of deep plum on our Modern Princess Bed, Charlie desk with Ned Wall Box, both in white wash, and and handy lockers, Sabrina was over the moon when she saw the transformation.
We were inspired by the whimsy and tones of the blossom wallpaper, both with colour and style. Further, being in a rural setting, the home was classically styled therefore both of these elements were key drivers to inspire the finished look.
The Design Brief
As Sabrina currently in year 6 with high school just around the corner, her mum wanted to transform her room so that she could grow up through high school and enjoy her own private space. As part of this transformation, both the bed and desk were to be changed out to a bigger sizes - going from a king single to a double bed. The room was small but, as a double bed is the same size as a single all of the elements that Sabrina wanted fitted in perfectly to create this dreamy bedroom.
Furniture for this bedroom includes the Modern Princess Bed head (fabric Warwick Lovely col. dusk), double ensemble, Shorty Locker (blush), Charlie Desk Large (white wash), Ned Wall Box XL (white wash) + skinny locker (white) for extra storage. The lunar desk chair was specifically re-upholstered in Warwick Julie col. Rose Stripe) to co-ordinate with the bed head.
Decor and bedding for the bed - we placed a Linen Duvet Set (blush), faux plum throw, Linen Sheet Set (white), white valance and a selection of cushions. The desk finishes included white curved rectangle pinboard with Pia Lamp (brass). For the bedside table the Porta Lamp (white) was the perfect size. To hang jackets and hats, white droppit hooks were hung in a row of 3 (see image above).
