A Glam Apartment - The Girls' Room

I'm in the final stages of helping my best friend makeover her GLAMOROUS city apartment and you guys, I cannot wait to share this one with you all. It has turned out even better than I could have dreamed! The whole space is so elegant and you will not believe the before and afters! I'm not kidding when I say that the whole house looks completely different from floor to ceiling.

So far, we've already tackled the living room, the master bedroom, all the bathrooms and the family room. We are still putting the finishing touches on their guest room but the most exciting project left is completely making over the bedrooms for their four children. Their youngest daughter is actually my God daughter so you know this is one project that is close to my heart!

Right now the room (which has incredible windows and a ton of light) is divided in two by a faux wall. The goal in the next few months is to knock down the wall to really open up the space and remove existing built-ins to allow for the girls to have both of their beds on the same wall. I really want to create a space that is light and airy, but one that also can grow with the girls, ages 6 and 2. I have been in love with Hygge and West daydream wallpaper for years and am dying to use it on the ceiling in the blush and gold colorway. The rest of the room will be painted blush, with gold accents and while the room looks muted in the mood board, the final version will be given color using custom drapery and throw pillows. Right now we are discussing built-ins opposite the beds, but I love the idea of bringing in some low profile bookshelves with hints of gold to really glam up the space. I really want to use canopy beds in a natural material and then frame pictures of the two girls in the opening of the bed frame. I think the final result is going to be a cool, fun, calming room that will be a haven for these two beautiful girls to grow up in.

You can see my inspiration for the room above, and below is a little mock up of the space. Right now construction is planned for March and I'll be shooting the space soon after! This will be one reveal you won't want to miss! xx
