Upstairs Bedroom No. 2

I always dreamed of iron bed frames for our Sugarberry Cottage. They take me back to my childhood. I love their simplicity and primitive aesthetic. These Lafayette twin beds in bronze from Amazon had the high arches I was looking for. They anchor the room beautifully.  For a natural and cozy look, I draped textured throw blankets from TJ Maxx over plain white bed sheets and  layered pillows in soft colors.

We recently redid one of the walls by adding a beadboard accent wall.  Although we loved the llamas wallpaper that was up before, it had gotten pretty beaten up—one of the downsides to having wallpaper in a busy kids’ room. To see the tutorial on hanging beadboard, click HERE. I am loving the new wall. It is like a breath of fresh air.  A thrift store picture frame was spruced up with some rose gold gilding wax and once hung added the perfect touch to the room. Our kids even thought it was a portrait of themselves.

Rustic touches such as a raw wood chest, macrame wall decor, and a distressed area rug help create that farmhouse feel.

These hanging macrame tapestries were one of the first purchases I made well before breaking ground on our house. I saw them and fell in love with the pattern their ombre style blues. I had them in my closet for months. I was so excited when I was finally able to hang them up. For me, adding texture in just the right doses can really accentuate your design and create moments of visual depth.

The doors were painted in Sherwin William’s Oyster Bay for another layer of color in the room.

A trace of the llama wallpaper from Wayfair still remains claiming its spot as an accent wall for the window seat. Creating this window seat was a way to give our children a special place to read and play. When my husband built it I asked him to add big cubbyholes at the base of the seat to store toys. I found a vinyl fabric that would stand the test of time while our kids are young and used it for the seat cushion.

To keep things open and less cluttered I opted not to bring in dressers or heavy furniture. Instead ample shelving recessed into the walls store toys and books without taking up additional space.

Thrift store picture frames glamoured up with bronze metallic paint showcase the kids’ art work.
