When we moved into our forever home last June, one of the first things I wanted to do was tackle the kids’ rooms and create a space that they can call their own. We decorated them back in July and I’ve been meaning to share them on here ever since – but never quite got around to buying all of the accessories to complete them (why is that always the most difficult part!?)
Initial inspiration and ideas
We wanted to create something fun and pretty for Taylor, who turned three in December and had outgrown her old nursery at our previous home. I initially had in mind pink with black and white accessories, but then fell in love with the idea of using gold spot wall stickers after browsing Pinterest (for longer than I’d like to admit!!) And so the idea of a peach and gold girl’s bedroom was born.
Choosing a colour scheme
We started the search for a peach wall colour and came across this one from the Valspar range in B&Q. We used it on two walls, and then used our go to colour – Egyptian Cotton from Dulux – on the other two. When the peach first went on the wall I wasn’t quite sure about it as it seemed pretty bright! But against the Egyptian Cotton, and with the gold wall stickers, it was perfect.
I also decided at this point that my idea of black and white would be too much, so I chose to stick to white and gold accessories.
I spent far too long pondering the layout of the gold stickers, but eventually decided on more of a random layout – which was also much easier to do than something more structured. Of course, Taylor insisted on helping me and tried to peel them off as I put them on – luckily we didn’t need many towards the bottom of the wall!
Furnishings and accessories
We chose a soft-touch light grey carpet, which made the world of difference and makes the room really homely.
I’d seen the Mascros pendant light from Ikea on Pinterest in a similar themed room, and I love how it creates a focal point. I also got the canopy from Ikea for the bargain price of £7.90, and used Ikea’s picture shelves to showcase Taylor’s ever-growing book collection.
The bedding is from La Redoute (shop all of their super cool kid’s bedding here), and the star cushion from Next. The bed was a gift from our lovely neighbours, which I think perfectly finishes the room.
I fell in love with this gold foil print by Le PapierStudio, which I ordered via Etsy. You can view their products here.
I picked up the other print, along with the peach and gold box from our local HomeSense. The gold metal heart is from Next, and the light up star (which now has to be switched on EVERY night!) from Ginger Ray.
I’m still on the hunt for more accessories to complete the look, but I’m really pleased with how the room has turned out so far and Taylor loves her new bedroom (although it still doesn’t make her want to get into bed any quicker!!)
