After blowing us away with this dreamy coastal boho kitchen, we couldn’t wait to see what else Stephanie Varacalli from @thevaratribe on Instagram had in store. One of her latest room revamps is for three-year-old daughter Amelia. Featuring gorgeous floral wallpaper, pink bed styling and butterflies throughout, it’s a sweet and magical space that has us yearning to be a child again!
Keep on reading for our chat with Stephanie, where she shares all the details of this dreamy pink girl’s bedroom design.
As the second big girl room makeover for Amelia, Stephanie incorporated more personality into this latest room.
“This was Amelia’s second big girl room. I love restyling and felt her first room didn’t really reflect her style or personality. While we kept all her furniture, we changed the decor, bedding and wallpaper.
“I wanted to create a space that is fun while feminine, without an overly pink look. Amelia is very sassy. She loves mermaids and butterflies, so I created a mermaid-styled room.
“Now I would say this room definitely has a minimalist boho vibe, although, there is a dreamy sense of fun and playfulness.”
Creating a kids bedroom can be a great deal of fun, but it helps to go about it in a strategic way.
“After choosing the statement piece, I suggest creating a mood board. A mood board is a great way to visualise different colours and textures and how they go together.
“In this case, the statement piece is the wallpaper. As we saved on keeping the same furniture, we didn’t mind splurging on the wallpaper. Amelia is also obsessed with flowers so it was easy choosing a wallpaper for her. Now the wallpaper is Amelia’s favourite part of her room.
“It’s also my absolute favourite space! I have so much fun creating magic and Amelia does a good job at turning it upside down,” laughs Stephanie.
We asked Stephanie if she had some advice to help other parents design their kids room, and she was more than happy to share.
“I would recommend getting inspired by a colour palette. This creates a great base to work off both design and style wise.
“Play around with different patterns and textures. You’ll get it wrong a few times but when it works, you can create something truly magical.
“I also recommend look at and supporting small businesses. Most of the elements from this room are from small businesses and they came together so well!”
