Pinterest is pretty, but can be pretty overwhelming. All those perfectly curated images of homes and spaces – but how does this relate to real life? To real projects? When you are planning a home, can all these ideas and images truly result in a practical, warm, inviting home where humans actually want to live? We think so.
Clients often tell us that they don’t have a style, or that they can’t decide on how their homes should look, in the face of so many decisions, products, finishes and aesthetics. Often, if they have an existing pinterest account, it is immediately obvious what they want in a home, and working with an interior designer can help consolidate these ideas into a workable, livable space. (shameless plug for our super popular e-design service)
On a personal note – we have our own project on the go – transforming our daughter’s room from a ‘toddler space’ to a ‘school kid space’.
So naturally, we created a Pinterest board, and naturally it soon spiralled out of control with so many amazing kids rooms out there. But as you can see there is still a sense of continuity to the style. Miss M’s room was full of vintage treasures, special gifts and artwork, but the paint was lacklustre, and the space full of kiddy clutter. We also wanted a fresh modern space – so the challenge was to integrate some existing elements and much loved heirlooms, into a functional and usable space.
Follow us on instagram for sneak peeks of the room, and keep an eye on the blog for our next ‘Little Roomies’ week in October, where we will show you the planning and execution of the room, which is proving to be a super successful space!
The main image above was the initial inspiration for the room – you can see the entire parisian home tour from Design Sponge here. All the other images below are part of our project Pinterest board
