room to grow :: ecg

we have come to the conclusion that it is time for the girls to have separate rooms. k & e are now 9 and 12 respectively, and while they could still easily sleep in the same room, their tastes and interests are starting to diverge and it feels right to offer them each their own space. we are lucky in this little 3 bedroom home to have the extra space in the modern shed out back. it will become the primary home office, as well as my work space, as we are prepping to move e into the old home office.

she has definite ideas about what she wants ("just a normal room!") and d and i veer a little more on the mid-century modern side of things. she's a not quite a girly-girl but loves fashion, her friends, 1D and plans to live in paris someday. i wanted pieces she could keep for a long time - possibly on to her own place (sans considering overseas shipping!). d has done lots of built-ins in the room already, so a dresser doesn't look necessary. here is what we have come up with so far...


one modcloth bonjour pillow cases
two unknown geodesic hanging light (help!)
three strut table in watermelon by bludot
four land of nod jenny lind double bed in black
five inspiration board inspiration from a beautiful mess
six map of paris by bodie and fou (sadly looking like its no longer available) this is the back-up idea.
seven tas-ka duvet cover

(and yes i am all fancy hot-pants photoshop over here. playing around. let's see where it goes. this is the first post back here dealing with house bits that we'd moved over to jumilla productions. it feels a little odd - but as we phase out that page, i hope you'll find our house"work" interesting as well.)

next up kjg's space (and lots more inspiration on pinterest.)

Love the bed frame!! I'm sure you've checked it out Etsy for Paris related prints etc - quite liked this

I love everything! I want to move into that room! Actually, used to have a bed frame almost exactly like that and was very sad when it got fatally wounded during one of my many moves.

Maybe you want to help decorate my room? :]
