It’s finally finished!! This room was apart of the One Room Challenge but after the 6 week timeframe still wasn’t complete. With so many new clients and school my time has been spent focusing on those tasks. Her room was put on the back burner until recently. With the new release of the Monika Hibbs x Urban Walls Wallpaper which is featured in her bedroom I needed to complete it. If I’m being honest, it was completely crazy to add this to my plate but as always my friends and family stepped up and helped me. I hope this room inspires you and love it as much as Ariella and I do!

Let’s start from the beginning with the inspiration! I wanted to create a space that would make Ariella feel grown up but also still have a fun playful vibe. All links and sources are included below.

I’m in love with how this gallery wall turned out. I originally wasn’t planning on adding yellow accents but I just love how fresh and cheerful it all feels! You can shop all the matching white photo frames HERE.

Mixing high and low priced items in this room has helped keep me on budget. The nightstands are the Hemnes collection from Ikea. I really wanted to add wall lights beside her bed but didn’t want to have them professional installed or a cord from the plugin ones hanging below. So I purchased the hard wired wall lights but have puck lights inside these that are controlled with a remote.

The gorgeous tufted grey velvet bed is such good quality and one she will have for a very long time. I find velvet fabric very forgiving and easy to clean, making it a great choice for a kids bedroom. This specific bed can be ordered through Laura May Interiors and available in multiple sizes.

Creating a work space for Ariella to do her homework and to be extra creative was important. She spends a lot of time at night here before she goes to sleep and I just love how it can also double as a vanity for when she gets a little older. This desk is called Malm from IKEA. I love large scale art and this pink and blue watercolour framed art is from Minted. Minted has so many great photos/prints and sizes available.

Let’s talk about this hanging rattan chair! I have wanted to install one of these in a project for awhile and her room was the perfect opportunity. She absolutely loves reading and writing in her journal in this chair. The corner windows were the perfect backdrop with pink velvet curtains. I needed some curtains quickly and these pink velvet curtains are from IKEA. To hem them I purchased the double sided tape that you use with your iron from IKEA.

Many of you will ask how difficult it was to hang this chair and lucky for me I had a girlfriends husband install it for me (thank you Tiffany & Jason!). Let’s just say if I installed it…it wouldn’t have been good. He did have to go into my attic which lucky for me was easily accessible. Because we wanted the chair centred between the windows he installed a couple extra wood boards between the trusses. This hanging chair isn’t going anywhere and can hold up to 300lbs.

If you love the look of this chair but don’t want to have to install it. I have found a few options below that give the same look.

Let’s talk lighting! I love beaded chandeliers but not the price tag that typically comes along with them. This chandelier was such a good find! It gives the look of a high end chandelier but at a great price. I am so happy with this light but the only downside was the grey coating comes off on your fingers a little when installing. That’s the only complaint I have about this light. But by just putting a blanket down before installing and washing your hands after you’ll be good to go.

The last area of the room to share is her highboy dresser. Again this dresser is the Hemnes collection from Ikea. It holds so much clothing and is budget friendly. To change up this dresser just simply switch out the knobs and you have a completely different look as I did to mine in the master bedroom.

I added some small decor items on the top of the dresser and a round rattan mirror to finish off the look. I am all about function but having it coordinate with the decor. This seagrass basket with a lid hides all the laundry while keeping with the style of the room.

Let’s talk about the biggest impact in the room which is the beautiful blue and white stripe removable wallpaper from Urban Walls. This is a new collection designed by Monika Hibbs for Urban Walls. The pattern made it really easy to install. I installed this all on my own and encourage anyone to give it a try! I’ve used Urban Walls wallpaper and decals for years and always happy with the results. Shop the entire collection HERE.

This room was so much fun to design and I can not wait to design more bedrooms. To inquire on hiring Laura May Interiors for yourself please email laura.m.derksen@gmail.com .
