A lady’s bed room will get a Swedish cottage type look with thrifted classic makeovers, Scandinavian wallpaper, and bedding sample play.
Olivia’s Swedish cottage bed room is completed and SO DARN CUTE that I simply wish to transfer in myself!
Isn’t this bed room a lot extra quaint than the day we moved in?
When she was in kindergarten, we gave Olivia’s room a pink makeover with butterflies throughout, however now that she’s approaching fifth grade, she requested a “large lady / teen” house. Nevertheless, she needed it to look “old-fashioned” or, in different phrases, “classic”.
Olivia selected the paint coloration, wallpaper, artwork, and curtains after which requested me to create the remaining to be stunned by the top end result. So I ran with it!
Designing lady rooms is certainly one of my favourite issues because it takes me again to my years rising up at all times redecorating my very own room after I had one million room concepts in my head and did inside design sketches on the age of 16.
Our cousin made that pencil sketch of Olivia when she was 3, so it appeared proper to hold it on the door to provide it somewhat highlight.
The Sandberg Ragnvi wallpaper from Scandinavian Wallpaper undoubtedly provides the entire wow issue that nearly seems like a wall mural. The classic print is a Nineteen Twenties revival from Sweden, which feels additional particular to us since a part of our household is from Sweden.
I stored envisioning plenty of sample play in right here, so I added a block print fake wallpaper to the ceiling utilizing cheap chook decals as a nod to Olivia’s nursery as a child.
We added beadboard under the chair rail and painted the doorways and trim with Sherwin Williams Smoky Blue. It’s such a reasonably coloration!
To distinction the floral, I needed so as to add a punch of geometric print, so this multicolored plaid rug balanced the classic wallpaper with a contemporary contact. It’s so plushy mushy and low upkeep, so it’s good for a bed room.
There are such a lot of colours on this rug: darkish blue, olive inexperienced, rust crimson, blush pink, amethyst purple, so it allowed me to introduce different colours within the room.
Since this child’s room is for a ten year-old lady, I didn’t wish to create an area that takes itself too severely. So I had enjoyable with plenty of sample within the bedding.
This stitched geometric quilt seems to be and seems like an actual classic coverlet that I paired with this delicate floral quilt cowl and down quilt. The taupe gingham pillow and mauve pillows included some heat tones towards the entire blue. These yellow embroidered sheets had been the right remaining girly contact.
To steadiness the blue tones, I hung these mauve velvet curtains and blackout Roman shades in Bonaire Flaxen.
Despite the fact that Olivia was adamant that she needed completely no pink, apparently mauve doesn’t depend as “pink”. That’s her logic not less than. 😉
I appeared in every single place for a pair of secondhand nightstands with completely no luck, however this pair of traditional stained nightstands offered loads of storage with the fashionable perform of an area within the again to run cords and chargers to an influence strip.
These trendy brass and rattan lamps added a touch of Scandinavian type too.

The black and brass desk lamp is nice for having on research nights, however this setup work effectively as an arrogance every time she needs to play with make-up too.
The closet doorways nonetheless had 80s type lacquered brass knobs, so we swapped them out for these vintage type door knobs. I found a straightforward strategy to replace the previous hinges by brushing the hinges with a layer of Rub n Buff.
Olivia is a complete fan lady. And by fan lady I imply she HAS to sleep with a ceiling fan on each night time. I discovered this gorgeous wicker fandelier, and it really works each bit nearly as good (if not higher) than a conventional ceiling fan.
I didn’t wish to cling an excessive amount of on these partitions in order that the wallpaper may shine, however Olivia picked out these vintage altered portraits with a lady blowing a bubble and a lady making a foolish face. Aren’t they so cheeky?!
They’ve enormous personalities like Olivia does, that’s for certain.
For the remainder of this dresser house, I Rub n Buffed this mirror I discovered secondhand for $7. I painted this $15 thrift retailer lamp to change into an Anthropologie dupe lamp.
By the way in which, these fake hydrangeas are the very best tremendous low funds faux flowers I’ve ever seen!
