READ THE INTERVIEW:
What is your favorite room in the house?
My Daughters’ room is definitely my favourite room in my house.
Why is this your favourite room?
I love it because its colourful, inviting and inspiring. I always feel happy and childlike in that room. I call it the rainbow room because the theme is rainbows which is symbolic of the fact that my girls are rainbow babies (children that are born after loss).
How have you decorated it? I.e what style?
I would say the room definitely has a Scandinavian minimalist vibe to it. The light-coloured flooring, mostly white walls, and the wood finishes is definitely in line with Scandinavian design. I jazzed it up a little by incorporating a statement pastel wallpaper from Graham and Brown which really makes the room pop. I’ve kept it pretty minimal and cost effective in terms of décor by only really using the children’s toys to accessorise the space.
Is there anything in this room that you are particularly proud of?
As the room stands now, there isn’t much DIY to rave about although I did previously make a cute canopy which was used as a reading nook (see images). My daughter loved it but I had to take it down to accommodate the cot when my youngest arrived. Aside from that, I guess I’m really proud of my furniture selections and managing to keep the space looking cohesive despite the required changes as my family grew. I think this room is pretty timeless!
How have you been using this room during self-isolation?
I’ve been trying to get my children to play in their room more often so that I can have a break every now and then. Sometimes I play with them in the room, which they love. It’s a great space to have fun and be creative.
One word to describe how this room makes you feel today?
Honestly, the room makes me feel happy!
