I was excited to hear that West Elm has a collaboration with Pottery Barn Kids featuring baby and kids furniture! As you know I am a big online shopper and when I do help the occasional client West Elm and Pottery Barn are some of my go-to for sources. I put together three different Design Boards for kids bedrooms and a gender neutral nursery, I would actually use any of these myself or send to clients. I can’t stress how important a design board is when starting to decorate a room. Just simply using a screen shot of the items you want to try in your space helps you to visualize what it will actually look like as it comes together. And starting with one main inspiration piece is the way to kick off the process. For me the main inspiration piece for each room below was either the wallpaper or rug!
Boys Bedroom Design Board-
I want this entire look for Finn’s big boy room! I love this look because it can “grow” with him as he get’s older. This works for Finn at 2 or at 15! Also the Buffalo Check Wallpaper is peel and stick! Easy to apply. I would personally use it as an accent wall and do a dark moody gray for the rest of the walls (if the room as good windows). That Black Canvas Basket is what will keep the room organized, I would get a couple and use for toys and puzzles! The Wood Daybed is a nice bed you could use in any space, a nice investment piece.
Girls Bedroom Design Board-
This girls bedroom design board actually reminds me of my bedroom. That Blush Nightstand was my inspiration piece for this bedroom. And I am obsessed with that Bunny Lamp they have had in their regular line, I have used it in several girls bedroom design boards! The Bunny Wallpaper is so subtle and pretty, love the idea of it behind the open Brass Bed that can “grow” with her from 2-16 or I am 36 and want it! I think that is the key when choosing kids bedroom furniture, it can be whimsical and fun but also timeless if we keep that as a goal when looking for pieces.
Nursery Design Board (Gender Neutral)-
These are some of my must-have items for a nursery. Blackout Curtains , a comfy Glider , and a Changing Table that doubles as a dresser. I also recommend a darker or patterned Crib Sheet (we had a white one and it was impossible to keep white). And if you have a smaller nursery that Crib with Storage is genius! It is also good to get a crib that converts to a toddler bed (like that one does). We have several large canvas bags like THIS that we use for dirty clothes, toys and extra blankets.
