The next space I wanted to show you is the grand children's bedroom. A classic, simple DIY that's kid friendly. The room was painted taupe, with rich brown window draperies that were also used behind the bed on both sides. A recycled chandelier was added (my favourite!! I think every room deserves a chandelier) and two crisp white end tables with shelving at the bottom to host the kids reading books and other knick knacks. The black and white accessories give the room a traditional pulled-together feel. A fun animal print comforter adds a punch of color to the room...it's really the sweetest kids room I've seen in a while.
The ever-clever closet! Below is my Aunt Val's closet space in her bedroom. She has a fairly large bedroom, enough that she was able to put up a wall where the existing closet shelves were, to create a walk-in closet. Take notice below that the wall doesn't go all the way to the ceiling. She designed it to leave a gap for the natural light from the closet window to spill over the top into the bedroom. The French door also provides natural light with a privacy screen...great if used as a dressing room or maybe to hide any clutter :)
Lastly, recycle-cycle as I'd call it. Below, is left-over Christmas garland cut up and hung in the living room window. You can leave it up year round. Looks great! I thought this idea was worth sharing!
