This publish is sponsored by Romabio.
Ever since Robert and I did the boho cottage shared bed room makeover for 2 of the 5 sisters who reside down the road from us, the opposite three sisters have been begging for a bed room makeover of their very own. (I imply, it’s solely truthful to even the rating, proper?)
The difficult half was determining the most effective bed room format with loads of operate, room for a triple bunk mattress setup, and mixing the women’ completely different kinds into one cohesive look.
The ladies primary request was a room that felt calming however vivid, and the one shade they may all agree one was gentle blue.
So a cottage seashore themed bed room with a little bit little bit of a camp-out vibe felt like the right route.
Here’s what their shared room regarded like earlier than with a moderately cramped triple bunk mattress.
Multipurpose Furnishings Format
The most important wants for this shared room have been storage and multipurpose “zones”.
So I discovered these dressers that may transition into desks or vanities with a easy drop down panel within the prime drawer. It may nonetheless function a clothes drawer, if the women want the additional storage. But when the women have to do homework or they want a spot to do make-up as they become old, these dresser desks can do all of it.
The scalloped chairs work completely as desk / self-importance chairs or will be moved beneath the loft bunk as a hang around area and studying nook relying on the women’ wants day-to-day.
This was the one little desk / self-importance setup that they had earlier than.
Seashore Themed Bed room Wallpaper and Paint
The principle shade the women might all agree that they beloved was gentle blue, so we painted their ceiling, trim, and doorways in Romabio Carolina Sky Low Lustre from our Bless’er Home paint shade line.
I completely LOVE this shade as a result of it may well seem blue, inexperienced, or grey relying on the lighting. It’s recent and clear however cheerful.
Romabio paints are zero VOC and non-toxic, making it the most effective the healthiest paint selection particularly for teenagers’ areas. The inside paint is made with pure mineral substances crafted in Italy utilizing an historical Italian method that provides a stunning luminous end.
For the wallpaper, we used a peel and stick that may simply be eliminated someday if our neighbors ever select to vary the look of this room sooner or later. However we went with this basic striped sample (personalized to the colours Eggshell and Celery) that will simply transition into an grownup bed room.
The mixture feels so classic, timeless, and barely seashore themed with out being too over-the-top “theme-y”.
Don’t the vertical stripes and painted ceiling make the room appear a lot taller than earlier than? Stripes assist elongate a room to create the phantasm of extra space (similar to carrying a vertical striped gown could make you seem taller).
Burl Wooden IKEA Hack Dresser
I created a look-for-less DIY burl wooden dresser by including burl contact paper to this IKEA Hemnes chest of drawers. Including these gold and glass knobs gave it a little bit female contact.
The dresser is SO MUCH larger than that they had earlier than so it might present heaps extra space to retailer garments.
For the reason that ladies are avid readers and particularly requested the necessity for guide storage, I including a studying nook beneath this loft bunk with a rattan bookshelf to herald extra coastal type textures.
These scalloped chairs have been surprisingly very comfy. In the course of this venture, I plopped down in a single, and truthfully I didn’t wish to stand up as a result of it completely hugged my again.
They’re good to lounge in however nonetheless have the correct quantity of assist to make use of with the dresser desks.
The scallop element is one other refined knod to the seashore themed bed room since they appear a bit like seashells.
Command Middle Zone
I initially meant to order this cheaper bookcase however completely forgot till we have been in the course of this week-long room makeover, so I needed to accept this dearer shelf with next-day transport.
It completely labored out although as a result of Robert got here up with the concept to make use of the bottom of the bookcase as a command middle for the three ladies so they may hold observe of schedules, jot down reminders, and dangle up artwork or notes as they wanted.
We simply used Command strips to hold this chalkboard calendar, magnetic white boards, and cork boards on the again.
Coastal Wall Decor and Camp Artwork
For youths’ and teenagers’ rooms particularly, it’s enjoyable to be vibrant and expressive with a group of artwork and objects. So I wished to hold up just a few camp artwork classic type pennants, some objects for variation, and a few coastal wall decor items to speak the type of a seashore themed bed room.
However I didn’t need it to really feel cliche; it wanted to really feel recent and like one thing authentically curated over time. It wanted to have texture, and it wanted to have FEELING. (In case you ever need assistance, right here’s my favourite gallery wall hanging trick.)
Here’s what this nook of the room regarded like earlier than we added the coastal wall decor and camp artwork gallery wall.
The piece of wall artwork that impressed this complete bed room is that this Citadel Coast Print by artist Teil Duncan. It’s been considered one of my favorites for a very long time, so I used to be dying to make use of it in a teen room.
We hung it on this gold body because the ladies all talked about how a lot they love gold. (And a little bit glitz by no means hurts, proper?)
Beside it, we positioned this coastal portray of a classic Woody Wagoneer with a surfboard on prime known as “How About Jupiter?” by artist Maja Cunningham. By mismatching the frames, they really feel like they’ve been collected over time.
Classic Pennant Camp Artwork
So as to add some texture, completely different shapes, and candy messages, I discovered these two classic type pennants to provide this beachy bed room a little bit camp out vibe.
This “It’s Cool to Be Sort” pennant added some form variation, and I like the good message properly suited to preteens and teenagers.
The “These Are the Good Previous Days” pennant provides an additional dose of vibrance with its pop of yellow to tie within the hints of yellow within the seashore artwork, bookshelf, and pillows across the room.
Ornamental Wall Decor Objects
I took a web page out of Lay Child Lay’s guide and located this classic ribbon that added enjoyable dimension and extra shade to the gallery wall.
And to include extra seashore type into the combination, we hung up a ukelele that the women can take off the wall and play if they need.
Coastal Model Mirror
One of many ladies actually beloved boho type, and since rattan is a key component in boho decor, this rattan mirror was the right method to mix boho and seashore vibe collectively.
Including this desk lamp in entrance of the mirror and positioning it reverse from a window helps bounce gentle across the room to assist the area really feel bigger.
Facet be aware: I meant so as to add a cute sister picture to this inexperienced image body and ran out of time, however the palm tree print it got here with nonetheless works, proper? 😉
Ornamental Accents and Equipment
The three sisters love enjoying music, so I added this classic type Bluetooth speaker with FM radio to allow them to play music as a lot as they need.
A diffuser is at all times a good suggestion (particularly if the women want a comfortable, glowing nightlight or get sick and have to diffuse eucalyptus into the room at evening). I added just a few drops of this natural Sleep important oil mix to create a calming environment.
Contemplating all 5 senses in a room creates a comfy expertise, so including these sound and scent components are simply as necessary because the decor.
In addition to the command middle on the bookcase backing within the studying nook, we additionally added just a few organizers on the desk dressers to assist the women keep tidy.
These concrete bookends have slots for additional pocket book and faculty provide storage, and we added these spherical acrylic desktop organizers for storing college or artwork provides and make-up inside the dresser desks.
Triple Bunk Beds
The triple bunk mattress the women had on this room earlier than had actually tight sleeping areas, so we unfold out three beds into a brand new configuration by positioning this double bunk twin mattress and bunk loft side-by-side as an alternative. Now, the women have sufficient head room to take a seat up in mattress.
The metallic bunk beds add a little bit vintage type to the room. I selected white make the room gentle and ethereal (despite the fact that I needed to spray paint one bunk mattress as a result of the white was out of inventory).
As a result of it may be difficult to make beds in a bunk each day, we sprung for these Beddy’s bedding units I’d heard nothing however nice opinions about. I don’t know how they’ll maintain up but, however the ladies beloved how simple they have been to zip up like a sleeping bag to shortly make their beds, and the minky material inside is tremendous comfortable.
For a little bit sample play, I added these floral printed gold quilt shams, blue geo printed pillowcases, and pink floral block print Kantha quilts.
I discovered this actually cute Serena and Lily dupe scalloped jute rug that added extra of that seashore materials texture and mimicked the scallop element within the chairs.
The jute made the room really feel so cozy and introduced in a a lot wanted pure component.
I’ve used these cordless pull down bamboo shades in a number of room makeovers as a result of they’re probably the most purposeful and budget-friendly I’ve been capable of finding.
They add nice texture and heat to a room and block out numerous gentle (they’re not blackout shades however they’re gentle filtering). The shades seems to be so good on their very own I made a decision to not add any fussy curtains to the home windows in any respect.
One final take a look at what this bed room regarded like earlier than!
For the reason that ladies could be climbing into their triple bunk mattress with their heads near the ceiling, I actually wished to keep away from utilizing a standard ceiling fan with blades. (That might be a catastrophe ready to occur, proper? Getting smacked within the head with a ceiling fan blade is one method to get up, I assume.)
So I discovered this caged ceiling fan with a rattan-like shade that works REALLY properly! The air output is each bit pretty much as good as a daily blade ceiling fan. And the distant can change the sunshine bulb shade and even has a dimming operate. You’ll be able to see extra prime rated fandeliers right here that I like.
A triple bunk mattress makes it just about inconceivable to entry a nightstand with a bedside lamp, so I discovered these wall mounted plug-in lamps from IKEA which are operable with a pull string inside so every lady can management her personal lamp proper from her bunk!
For the dresser, I discovered this beachy desk lamp with a basic linen shade. I added this contemporary activity lamp on the alternative dresser for additional gentle if the women want it to do homework too.
On the rattan bookshelf, for some additional studying gentle, I positioned this mini lamp with built-in USB ports the place the women can cost their units as wanted.
That’s it! There have been so many little particulars that went into this room that it’s laborious to maintain all of them straight, so right here’s an inventory of sources we used.
Along with the Carolina Sky paint shade we used on this bed room, you’ll be able to see extra of the Romabio x Bless’er Home paint shade assortment right here.
I do know I say this each time we share a room makeover, however this one turned out even higher than I envisioned.
This camp out cottage seashore themed bed room simply makes me wish to be 12 once more… or makes me wish to purchase a seashore home and go loopy over again with coastal bed room adorning. Perhaps each.
