moodboard and plan
If you are new here: Hi and welcome to Nostalgiecat !
My name is June and am a Norwegian mum of one living in the UK. I have a passion for Scandinavian and Eclectic interior design and I love finding creative solutions to suit my limited budget and I love making things for the home (Check out my DIY gallery to see some of my projects).
I decided to join the One Room Challenge™ as a linking participant just over 2 weeks ago, as I needed a kick up the backside to redecorate my 5 year old daughter, Mia's room.
If you are not familiar with the One Room Challenge, basically it is 20 different handpicked bloggers, from all over the world + Any linking participants, like me, that have challenged themselves to all makeover a space in 6 short weeks. The idea is that by following along the various makeovers, you can pick up a trick or two to help you redecorate your own home! Please visit Calling it Home for the full lowdown and links to all the fabulously talented interior bloggers taking part and their projects.
Last week me and Mia used pinterest to decide the look she wanted in her new room, and I talked about how to find inspiration and put together the look you want( See the post here!)We also pinpointed some of the more practical things that needed to be considered, such as lack of storage and floor space....and the need for a desk!!
We have spent the last week honing in on the elements she wants in her "new" room, and today I am sharing a moodboard I've put together for the look she wants.
And I have also been working out our plan of action for the makeover, and some practical solutions to the issues in Mia's room.
|1: Half moon wallpaper, Ferm Living / 2: Pink Chestnut origami lampshade, Studio Snowpuppe / 3: Black Cat pastel poster, Buul / 4: Ranarp wall/clamp spotlight, IKEA / 5: Gaston wall Bureau, Heals / 6: Paint colours:Seldom Seen & Honey fever, both Crown / 7: Cotton rug, H&M home / 8: Bat felt Storage basket, H&M|
In terms of paint for the walls (6), Mia has had a slight change of heart (It's a girls prerogative, don't you know?!!) and decided she still likes pink...but this time she's chosen a peachy blush pink, and we've decided to pair it with a lightish grey on the opposing walls with some graphic elements, like in the wallpaper from Ferm living (1) to make it a little less sugary sweet. Now, we can't really afford the wallpaper, so I am going to DIY a similar pattern on the wall....
I'm going to paint her wooden floorboards white to brighten up the room, like I did for the master bedroom, as this will make a huge difference to the look of the space
I am also going to make a new origami lampshade for her, similar to the pink one, above.
We really like this wall hanging desk , above (5) as it is the perfect solution to fit into her tiny room.... but as it is way out of our budget and out of stock, I am currently making some plans to DIY something similar...probably not quite as stylish, but never the less practical!
We are going to use one of these rugs (7) that we've already got, but I will treat her to a new task light above her desk, like the one , above (4) and some new artwork for the walls (3) as well as a funky storage basket(8).
