Girl’s Room Design for an Animal Lover

Post by Kim Grosser of The Land of Nod’s Design Services Team.

Girls Room Design: Animal Lover

Yellow Bunny Wall Art / Owl Always Love You Framed Wall Art / Bear Hook / Personalized Table Lamp Shade / Nickel Table Lamp Base / Hampshire 6-Drawer Dresser / Mint Larkin Bed / Twin Well Trained Sheet Set / Gold Pinstripe Pillow / Yellow Ruched Throw Pillow / Snug as a Bug Quilt / Mint Faux Leather PoufChevron Rug

This room was designed for a little girl with a love of animals. We took care to balance the lighter elements (mint bed) with the richer elements (navy bedding, rug) while including animal accents.

A few other easy-to-incorporate elements include:

  • Warm vs. Cool – We paired our mint Larkin bed with the stone Hampshire dresser because of the warm and cool contrast. The two warm vs. cool contrasts in this design are mint vs. taupe and metal vs. wood.
  • Pops of Color – Notice the yellow accessories throughout the room. Pops of color help give rooms an interesting visual point.
  • Balance – Navy was chosen to balance out the sweetness of the mint bed. It helps add balance and contrast.

Family Game Night - Don't Let the Blocks Drop

Family Game Night

Post by Suzanne of Not-So-SAHM This summer was a whirlwind of travel and adventure. It never seemed like we had time to sit down as a family and catch up. Strangely, now that the school year has started our calendar has calmed down and we have found ourselves home with nothing to do on a Saturday afternoon. It…
