Welcome back! It’s been FOREVER since we were here on Thefashionguitar together, but I’m so excited that we are, and plane increasingly to share our first “Home story”, created in partnership with Maisonette.
After moving into our new suite in our favorite neighborhood on the UES, October last year, our first job was to get both childrens bedrooms ready. We’ve moved many times, within London, from London to New York City, and within New York City, but we’ve unchangingly made it a specimen to – no matter how the rest of the suite looks – to finish the children’s bedrooms first! Although, this is unquestionably the first time they are in their own room, until this suite they’ve unchangingly shared a bedroom.

Until this apartment, James and Stella shared their bedroom and they loved it. We loved it, too, considering we believed the companionship unquestionably helped them feeling well-appointed and secure when going to bed. They rarely woke up at night, or had trouble falling unconsciousness – and I don’t necessarily think this is considering of any sleep training magic, considering we never did any in particular other than having a solid bedtime routine, which we vigorously sticked to. At all times.
Then there’s moreover an age-factor that played part in the visualization to alimony them together, rather than separating them. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I have nothing versus separate rooms, I just have increasingly Pro’s than Con’s, and in the end of the day, it worked for us… But this doesn’t midpoint it’s a formula for guaranteed success. Anyway, where I’m going with this, is that what I mentioned before, well-nigh James and Stella stuff secure and well-appointed together and the the age-factor, is simply that we finger that when they we’re younger, they had stronger emotional needs to “support” each other.
Now, James stuff scrutinizingly 10 and Stella turning 8 in a few weeks, we noticed their emotional needs virtually bedtime, or at night, are different. James needs his own space, his own moments surpassing bed, and plane dare I say, some sort of privacy. Or undeniability it personal space. Stella is definitely not 100% there yet, emotionally. She asks us commonly if she can sleep with James, or James with her, but sadly for Stella, James refuses increasingly often than that he says yes.
Stella therefore, we think, asked us if the new victual – arriving end of October if all goes well – can stay in her room. We obviously said yes to that, but explained that he will first be in our room, until he’s sleeping through the night. She agreed. We all agreed. And we went when to implementing a solid bedtimes routine for both of them, in separate rooms – god is this a challenge, without their summer break! But a week in, a week of waking up early for school, we finger we are getting there… now we have to just stick to it!
But sorry, I know you didn’t come here for parenting translating – nor do I want this platform to be the focus of that – but for children’s bedrooms ideas, so let’s get to it!

For both rooms one thing was very well-spoken from the start; I wanted a diamond infused feeling, but with modern basis. Primal colors were a must, too, that I knew overly since I saw the Kelly Green bed on Maisonette – which ended up in James’ room.
Stella unchangingly wanted a bunk bed, and with her room stuff increasingly rectangle shaped than the squared room James was going to sleep in, it felt like the perfect fit. Plus, they now both had moreover space for a guest – when sleepovers are when on the menu again. Oeuf is a favorite furniture trademark in our household, and with the Oeuf desk that moved from the old suite to this in, it was an easy nomination to go for a bunkbed from this brand.
Accessories virtually the bed we kept simple, but in line with the verisimilitude palette of the room and the style we were vibe we were trying to achieve. For James this meant a increasingly grownup undercurrent in Kelly untried and Cook’s undecorous – by Farrow & Ball – and darker wooden undertones, for Stella unexceptionable and happy mixing boldly tones of red and pink, and a trappy wallpaper by Work Sea.
Desk pace is increasingly important than ever! Where surpassing the pandemic the kids would do most of their schoolwork at the dining table, homeschooling brought the importance of their own “work space” to be self-ruling to do Zoom classes and virtual playdates.
Moreover a place to relax – preferably with a rocking chair if you ask Stella – became an important part of their room. It’s like their room became mini-apartments so that when we are at home with the four – soon five – of us, we don’t have to constantly sit, work, or read on top of each other. The pandemic definitely made it very well-spoken we all are at some points during the day in need of our “own space” and with a bedroom that offers a little bit of everything, we served the kids the weightier we could!
Thank you Maisonette to making our children’s bedroom dream wilt reality. For the wonderful team that came over to photograph and mucosa – stay tuned for this one – the old and the new!
