Mood Board for Kid's Shared Bedroom
If you follow me on Instagram (@thecountrypeony) or Facebook, you know that my family and I are moving to a charming, old, newly- remodeled farmhouse. I have been working on the design for my children's (1-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son) shared bedroom. Above is a picture for the inspiration of the room. When designing a space, I love mixing old pieces that used to mean so much with new pieces that have the potential to mean so much. I also want a bedroom that matches their separate personalities and interests, yet still encourages play, learning and creativity. It has been a fun challenge to say the least.
This is the first room that I am focusing on, because I want my children to have a place they can feel comfortable in right away (even if the rest of the house is in disarray). My inspiration came from the gorgeous handmade quilt that their great-grandmother made them with vintage fabrics (pictured above). I also scoured Pinterest for more inspiration. I was also very inspired when I saw Lay Baby Lay kid's country bedroom. I love the wall color, colorful details and the grounding navy blue rug. (Sidenote: Joni with Lay Baby Lay is one to follow if you like bright, whimsical spaces).
I took stock of the pieces that we have, and found new pieces that I think will work well. Below is the mood board that I came up with for the space with sources linked below. As the room comes to life I am curious to see how close it stays to my original vision.

Stay tuned, because in the next couple of weeks I plan to give you an update on the room as we move into the farmhouse. In the meantime I would love to hear what you think of the space, and if you have any suggestions on how to marry their distinct personalities into a cohesive space.
