We are so thrilled to share this gorgeous room from Bree @sipsopkids ! Read our interview, browse the gallery and shop the look
1. How would you describe the style of Zaire's bedroom?
A modern bright, light and minimal room with a touch of vintage.
2. You have selected such gorgeous wallpapers for both of your children's bedrooms. What inspired you to incorporate wallpaper into the designs?
Both the "wallpapers" are actually hand painted works of art created by us. I was inspired by some of my favourite kids room designers (including Bel from Petite Interiors Co and Tarina from Oh.eight.oh.nine)to incorporate it into my design. Although, I wasn't able to find exactly what I was looking for so I thought why not just paint it ourselves? My hubby's good with a paint brush and so we did.
3. Tell us about the stylish storage solutions you have in Zaire's room.
For storage in Zaire's room we went with some gorgeous vintage inspired metal suitcases that came all the way from the UK, perfect for storing an extra blanket or some toys. We also chose one of the Ooh noo carts which my boys love! They pull it around and fill it with all their toys or even jump in and have a ride. It's multipurpose and I highly recommend it. (Ours is from Growing Footprints). I chose a Rafa Kids shelf for the wall to put all those special handmade items on that you don't want touched and then a book/storage shelf (designed and made by my dad and I) on the opposite wall for practical reasons.
4. What colour combinations are you loving in kids interiors at the moment?
I love a simple base layer of white, wood and grey for the big unchangeable items (beds/shelves, rugs) with pops of colour to the items that are easy to change (cushions, blankets, toys). Doing this allows you to change styles easily, makes it fun, gives the room warmth and creates that special atmosphere that our kids adore.
5. What piece in a child's bedroom do you think parents should invest in the most?
Definitely a good bed that will last them for years to come. The one we purchased from Rafa kids is fantastic as it's low to the ground for ease of access for a toddler, it's slim line and stylish! We chose not to buy a toddler bed because most of them were the same size as our cot and we thought it was better to put the money into something they won't grow out of too quickly.
