In Tinitrader’s next Style Series room reveal, we had the talented Rebecca and Terry from La De Dah Kids and Shelter 7 come in to the Tinitrader office to style two looks featuring the Grotime Overture Caboodle Cot.
This room reveal has definitely been worth the wait with Rebecca and Terry creating an inspiring nursery look that throws out any boring neutral stereotypes. Instead, we see a modern and funky space which can easily transform as your child grows and tastes change.
The Grotime Overture Caboodle Cot is definitely the feature piece of the room. Designed for modern living, the Overture is efficient with its use of space but definitely not lacking in style. The beauty of the Overture is the ability to convert in to a single bed as your child grows with clever add-on kits.
We love the use of décor and bed linen from our favourite brands such as Major Minor, Milt and Joe and other designers. Special mentions go to La De Dah Kids with their knitted soft toys, adorable wall hangings and rugs finishing this modern yet adorable nursery look.
We spoke to Rebecca and Terry about their inspirations behind the room.
1. What was your inspiration around putting the nursery and kids room together?
The inspiration, especially for the nursery, was a gender neutral base that you can then add a pop of colour into once the baby is born. We have chosen a great neutral base which works well with most colour injections as the baby develops and their personalities become known.
2. What was your thought process when changing the room from a nursery to a kids bedroom?
I think showing how one palette can develop. No longer is it always about soft pastels. A baby can rock black and greys and it can still have a calm feeling. A lot of these investment pieces can then grow with the child. How great is a cot that can adapt to a bed and side tables or a bed and a book shelve for all the little bits and pieces collected as the child grows older. I think we are now seeing more of a practical element to design where many pieces can be adaptable and grow with the child.
3. What are you hot tips for parents who are wanting to know how to go about doing the same transition?
Invest in pieces that can last and grow with your child. Start with a great neutral base and the room can develop with your child’s personality from newborn all the way through to teenage years now.
4. What do you love most about styling up a kids bedroom?
I love kids spaces!!! I love that the creativity is endless and you can just have so much with it.
5. Do you gravitate to a particular theme or do you change based on your surroundings?
We don’t really stick to a theme at all. We love to adapt to our surrounding the client and their needs this creates a more successful outcome.
6. Do your boys influence what you like and where you get your inspiration from?
Our boys are definitely a huge inspiration. They are quite creative and love creative and inspirational places. Our boys share a room and they have very similar interests which make it lots of fun. Seeing their imaginations run wild is definitely a huge inspiration.
7. What is something that amazes you and Terry?
I guess people’s reactions to our products. We get the most beautiful feedback from our customers from our toys being a comforter to their sick children to their faces when they open that special birthday present. There is nothing better than happy children and we are glad that our products play some small role in making kids smile.
8. What is next for Beck and Terry and La de dah kids?
We have many exciting new products in the pipeline that we have been working on for nearly a year so seeing these nearly finished is very exciting.
Stay tuned for the next room reveal where Rebecca and Terry use the Grotime Overture Caboodle Cot as a single bed and create a kids bedroom to envy!
