Guys, this is my last nursery/room tour and it is GORGEOUS! Eliora’s bedroom is a beautiful mix of DIYs and well-curated buys. That’s to be expected since her mom is Deborah Kessly of Bubkess, the talented Australian interior designer with an eye for quality and affordability.
“Having never had a finished room, I wanted to create a colourful and fun room for my 3 year old daughter. Starting with a neutral backdrop such as the gold dot wall decals allowed me to add lots of different pops of colour together with the white furniture.”
“I didn’t want the room to be overly girly so I added a graphic black and white Ikea rug which is a great contrast to the other colours in the room. I chose fairly classic furniture pieces and decor which was inspired by the nursing chairs classic lines in the room. They’re pieces that will grow with her over time as they are not too childish but more investments that I know will see her through to her tween years.”
“Wanting to complete the room on a budget a lot of the furniture pieces were either a second hand find with a coat of white paint applied to freshen it up or I added my own little DIY twist on it. It took around 6 months to complete as I had a lot more DIY projects than I ever imaged but it allowed for a more personal space that Eliora loves and she makes sure she tells every person that sees the room “My mum made it for me!”
“I’d have the say one of the hardest things about designing your own home compared to designing a clients is making a decision! With clients, they know what they want and I know what will look great without second guessing myself. Because I love so many different styles I find myself wanting to change things around all the time but over time I’ve come to realise what my true style is and I am only now becoming more confident in my choices. The best thing about designing for clients is being able to create a completely different look every time so I essentially can vicariously live through each and every one of them!”
