Kids Room | A Gentle Giraffe in a Room of Blue


Throughout 2014 our home went through some major construction and I spent endless hours during that period looking at interior design sites for inspiration. Since I was pregnant at the time with my second girl, I was going through the crazy nesting phase but couldn’t actually do anything about it because of all the contraction work. So, all my interior decor research was bottled up for a year before I could actually apply the inspiration to my home. Months on, I still find myself looking for decor inspiration and one of my favourite things is kids rooms.


Today, this kids room jumped out at me and I just had to share it with you. Now, I love a big bold print wallpaper but I’ve never had the balls to do it in my own home for the fear that it could go horribly, horribly wrong. I also fear that after a while you could get sick of it and need a change which is not that practical to do on an ongoing basis.

Nevertheless, I just love this bedroom for kids. I find the blue quite refreshing and the by making up curtains in the same print as the wallpaper, the pattern envelopes the entire room.


The clever use of fuschia accessories, such as the mirror and stools, breaks up the blue and adds a splash of fun colour.

But most of all, I love this guy… The gentle giraffe!
