I had a the pleasure of working with Danielle on her son Harvey’s room last year, so when she asked me back to design a space for her daughter Dahlia this year, I was thrilled. They had recently moved house and wanted to give Dahlia a beautiful big girls room that would last her well into her teen years. My brief for the project was a feminine and soft colour palette of pinks and greys and Dahlia particularly loved the idea of a vanity area.
While designing Dahlia’s room, I received an email from Minnie and Me Interiors with a sneak peek of their new wallpaper collection design by Bek Halliday. I feel so privileged when a brand reaches out to me ahead of a launch and I just knew this wallpaper design would be the perfect foundation for a beautiful girls rooms. Luckily Danielle loved the wallpaper too and we secured the first print run of this incredible paper for Dahlia.
With the wallpaper and paint selected, the search typically begins for the perfect furniture pieces to complement the chosen colour scheme. I already knew of the Sienna Console from Adairs (because when you design so many girls rooms, you make it your business to know where all the pink furniture is!) and thought it would make the perfect vanity. As we began to pull different furniture items for the rest of the room, I discovered just how many pieces from Adairs furniture range were working in the space and with the colour scheme. In fact, we were able to source all of our major furniture and linen pieces from one store, without the room feeling even the slightest bit matchy matchy! With just a few additional pieces we were able to design a perfectly balanced space around a majority Adairs foundation. It just goes to show, you don’t have to scour the globe for that collected and curated look. It’s all right here at home!
Summer from Little Rae Prints is a great friend of mine and I’m lucky enough to get a little sneak peek of her new designs from time to time. I was so excited that this new Unicorn piece worked so beautifully with the room. The plain pink background doesn’t compete with the wallpaper at all, which is an important consideration when hanging art on quite a busy wallpaper. Dahlia’s beautiful rug is from Langdon Ltd. (which is also available in our store!) and it was also an item that I was just dying to use!! The fringing and the soft pink colour make it such a special piece. It also comes in white, black and mustard!
I really hope you love this room as much as I do! You can shop the beautiful pieces in Dahlia’s room from the suppliers below:
