With the arrival of Katarina came the need for Maya to vacate the nursery, and thankfully she relished the transition to a new bedroom. We actually transformed our old office into her new room, having the built in desk and cabinetry taken out and reinstalled in another, bigger room, that could double up as a guest room as well as office (with a sofa bed). You can see the "before" office below, next to how it looks now as Maya's bedroom. The wall mounted shelves were part of the office setup that we decided to leave, they also have built in lights operated by a switch right next to her bed (handy!). We also left one panel of shelves open at the end of a row of built ins so that her toys and books could be displayed - she loves being able to see them from her bed and grab things as she wants.
The key piece was obviously the bed, which we had made by Bednest and couldn't be happier. The upholstered bedhead and sides provide some protection from knocks and look soft and bespoke: a nice contrast to the built in wardrobes. Her bedlinen is of course CULTIVER - this kid will need to stay in linen for life as she is such a hot sleeper!
The elm stool at her bedside is from Provincial Home Living, and the blind was custom made with fabric from No Chintz. A leather pouf is very useful in a kid's room I've found; ours is used as a step to climb into bed, and a seat for reading stories.
