Asher’s new room is here, lovely followers. It’s been a minute since we’ve shared a new project with you all, and while it’s been all systems go on very exciting things behind the scenes, I’m thrilled to finally have another room to share with you. When I released Asher’s room below in 2014, I had no idea what it would mean for the business. If I could pinpoint an actual date when Petite Interior Co. (Petite Vintage Interiors at the time) went from a side business, to a full-time career, it was around the time this room hit social media. From the bottom of my heart, I can’t thank you enough for the comments, likes, pins and all round love you have shown for this space in the past 3.5 years. When it came to updating our Children’s Interior Decorating Course, Kids Rooms 101, this year, I volunteered Asher’s room for a makeover with trepidation – could I design something that would be just as loved? Dear followers, I’m thrilled to say that I think I’ve created a room that you’re going to adore, maybe even more than her first.
Welcome to Asher’s new room for Kids Rooms 101! Click the video below to see the full tour, all the amazing suppliers and more about the course.
Before we talk a little further about Kids Rooms 101, and how you can register, let’s look at the beautiful products that I selected for Asher’s room, in more detail.
Perch Bunk Bed from Urban Baby | www.urbanbaby.com
When Asher said she wanted a bunk bed, I wasn’t thrilled. As mentioned in the video above, if you’ve ever looked for bunk beds, you’ll know there’s really not many around. Once I saw the Perch bunk though, it was impossible to find anything that compares. It’s also VERY difficult to get your hands on in Australia. Thankfully, the team from Urban Baby were able to track one down for me and I was just so impressed with the customer service that I received from the entire team. I can’t recommend them highly enough, not only for their amazing furniture range, but their entire catalogue of unique baby and kids products. They’re definitely worth checking out! We’re so happy with our bunk. The quality is amazing but I have to say, I just love the way it looks.
Hua Trees Wallpaper from Sian Zeng | www.sianzeng.com
This beautiful wallpaper was my ‘must use’ item for this room design. I just adore the graduated pink of the trees peeking through all the furniture. Because Asher’s room is quite small, I decided to cover all 3 walls to make an even bigger statement.
‘The Asher’ Desk by Petite Interior Co x This Little Love | www.thislittlelove.com.au
In our interior design projects, we’re looking to custom made options more frequently. It gives us the opportunity to create something special for our clients and of course, let’s my imagination REALLY run wild. For Asher’s room, I loved the idea of a small desk in the corner, that also had some shelving for special items. Hayley and Shane from This Little Love have made some custom beds for me in the past, so I quickly sketched out my ideas for the Asher Desk, sent it over and their team got to work perfecting the design and bringing it to life. I’m absolutely thrilled with the result and excited to collaborate with the TLL team! This prototype is a little high, so we’ll be perfecting the sizing before the release. Cute kids desks are so hard to come by and I think this really fills a gap in the market. They’ll be available in a variety of colours and could you imagine how amazing two or three would look side by side? Seriously adorable!

Cloud No. 5 Print by Max Wanger | www.maxwangerprintshop.com
Have you seen anything more beautiful for a child’s room than a single pink cloud floating through the sky? It was exactly the simple, but stunning, art piece that I needed to break up our pink wallpaper. The brass picture lamp adds an extra touch of glamour, I’m just obsessed with them. I think you’ll be seeing more picture lamps from us the future!
Booksee Shelves from Ubabub | www.ubabub.com
We’ve used them in client rooms many times and our followers always ask after them, so I had to use the amazing Booksee shelves in Asher’s room. They are so sturdy and fit so many books, they’re honestly the best forward facing book shelves on the market.
Ottomans by Peoni Home | www.peonihome.com.au
If we have any upholstery needs, Peoni Home are our go to supplier. They created the beautiful large ottoman for us in James Dunlop Velutti fabric in colour 311. The pink ottoman was purchased online at the last minute due to a little fabric delay, but Peoni Home can also whip one up for you with ease. I recommend the same Velutti fabric in colour 824.
Ophelia Rug in Blush (Large) from Sage and Clare | www.sageandclare.com
Is there such a thing as too much pink when you’re 5? We use this rug and the Grey Marlow from Sage and Clare in client rooms regularly and we just adore it. It’s hard wearing enough to withstand the heavy traffic in a child’s room but soft enough to sit and play on.
S Wave Sheer Curtains from In Curtains and Blinds | www.incurtains.com.au
We’ve specified so many of these beautiful curtains for clients in the past but this is actually the first time I’ve ordered custom curtains for my own home (we have plans to renovate soon!). What an amazing experience AND result. The soft light is beyond gorgeous!
Cushions from La Cerise Sur Le Gateu | www.lacerisesurlegateau.fr
French brand, La Cerise Sur Le Gateu (which I have surely mis-pronounced in the video above!) is one of our go to’s for beautiful children’s cushions. I love their colour palette and minimal prints. They make a great base for layering other character cushions on top.
And we can’t forget the little details that really make the room special!
Baskets from Munchkin and Bear
House Cushion from Camomile London
Bear Cushion from Boo and Bear
Bed linen and Brass lamps from Designstuff
Alphabet Board from Alphaboard Co.
Rainbow from One. Two. Tree
Bunny toy from Little Peach Handmade
Paper Rosettes from Kara Hynes
