I follow Annie from Zevjoy on Instagram and I am so inspired by all her DIY projects and her gorgeous photography. She is known for her simple, natural and easy way of designing and she does it all on a budget. I asked Annie to share her recent update she just did to her son’s bedroom for my Kids Space Series on my blog. You are going to love her ideas…
I asked Annie where the main inspiration came from for her son’s bedroom. Sometimes it can come from a piece of art, a pillow and for Annie it started with the stripe bedding from Beddy’s. Annie had picked out the easy to make bedding and decided she wanted to have lots of varying shades of gray along with some dynamic geometric and bold patterns.
Annie says that living in a small home she feels it is important for each room flow together. She is a big fan of neutrals and has run with that color scheme throughout her home, but she wanted her sons bedroom to be youthful and fun. Her son, Zealand (love his name) did get to share his input and Annie tried her best to incorporate his personality and likes into his room. For instance he does love color so Annie added bright green paint onto one piece of furniture. As well as the other things he enjoys nature, math, animals and maps which all can be found in the wallpaper, prints, pillows and plants. Along with his desk, that is ready for lego building with lego organization.
The hanging glass terrariums are such a fun touch, and they incorporate the outdoors and nature that her son loves.
One thing I always ask (because I have a little pack rat child) is what do you do with all of your kids “treasures”? Annie said that her son likes to collect things like legos, special found rocks, tiny figurines etc. So Annie set out to find stylish boxes and containers that could hide away some of the treasures. His corner desk with many compartments making it perfect to hold baskets (for legos) and then larger cubes where the miscellaneous toys can get tucked away. His books and other toys are tucked inside more cubes that fit perfectly in his closet.
Now this dresser was what really stopped my scrolling through Instagram. Annie said that this dresser was her son’s baby dresser. Annie repurposed it with Stikwood panels on the front, they are pieces of wood that have a sticker on the back, making it easy to add wood to anything. What an easy DIY that makes such a statement! Thanks for sharing your unique ideas on a budget Annie! You can see more of Annie’s home HERE.
