The Tale of a Whale

When I was asked to help a client design a big boys' room I was not sure how the little boy would take moving in.  After all moving from a cot to a bed is a big step in one's early life! I worked with my client to develop a Concept that would direct the colour scheme and furnishing choices and helped with contacts and purchasing the items.  From a custom wardrobe to a stripey whale bed fellow,  the room was wonderfully transformed from a cavernous store room to a fresh but cosy place for a big boy to sleep, grow and play.  And my small client responded by settling in beautifully.   As I was looking around the finished room with his mother, he  shushed us - his whale was sleeping!

The dreamy abstract artwork spoke for the colour scheme of the room - dusky navy and pale grey with crisp white accents.

Feature 3

Traditional style wardrobe by Lifestyle Wardrobes is fitted with shelving as well as hanging space.  A circular charcoal braided rug from Armadillo brings a childs' scale to the lofty period room.

 The white painted furniture contrasts beautifully against the original jarrah floorboards. A little nightstand holds precious things and a lamp for bedtime stories.  The bed, from Out of the Cot, has  removeable side rail and a trundle for future sleepovers.
