We are thrilled to share this super cool bedroom created by Jacinda from Hide & Sleep for her little client Harry
Jacinda describes herself as "a child loving, dog friendly girl, who loves a cup of tea." She is the amazing stylist behind Hide & Sleep creating the most gorgeous spaces for newborns, children and teenagers.
We were lucky to have Jacinda style our very first Tinitrader Pop Up Market in 2015! We remember her top tip which is when styling your child's room you should use the "Three Colour Rule" - we can definitely see this in play in Harry's amazing bedroom.
Harry is five years old and mentioned to Jacinda how much he loved Star Wars. His mum on the other hand, was happy to compromise and include this theme but wanted a stylish cool room that would grow with Harry.
"Harry had white walls, and whilst we wanted wallpaper we wanted it to be modern and subtle, nothing over the top. The grid wallpaper was perfect and fitted the brief. We replaced Harry’s bed with a pale blue linen bedhead complete with leather look piping to keep the room contemporary and then I chose a striped linen quilt cover with grey cushions and throw blanket as I wanted an element of masculinity. The pops of orange used in the cushion, lamp and prints, added fun and colour and worked perfectly with the greys and blues."
"When choosing prints I wanted something age appropriate but still stylish and cool, so I asked Harry if he liked dinosaurs? Of course he said “yes” so off to Dino Raws I went and picked out a few prints of different shapes and sizes and scattered them around his room."
"Storage is always an issue in children’s rooms and Harry’s room was no exception. Harry has lots of Lego, cars and small things that were kept in an Ikea bookcase, but with a new room comes new storage. This Lilly and Lolly bookcase wasn’t the cheapest option but it looks great, and of course is practical. We also knew that we would get a lot of use out of it and it wouldn’t date which is always important when choosing expensive furniture."
"I subtly placed some figurines that he had into his new bookcase. I ordered him a cute Star Wars clock for his bedside and Yoda (I hope that’s right or Harry will quickly correct me), now sits proudly next to him as he sleeps. I searched high and low to find a poster of R2D2 that wasn’t ghastly, and this minimalist print came up trumps."
