The Girls Toronto Bedroom
I’m renting a beautiful and perfectly located condo in the heart of Toronto while I’m working here and have had a blast bringing in a few small elements to make the space feel more like mine. My favorite room to work a little magic on was the girls room. The condo is beautiful, like I said, but very grown up and sophisticated in style. It’s three bedrooms and two and a half baths which means the girls have to share a space. I picked the larger of the two guest rooms so they’d have a little more room to wiggle and got right to work transforming it from sophisticated guest room to whimsical little girls room.
I had no intention of making any major changes to the room, so although I would have loved more kid friendly furniture I had to make the bed and dresser already in the space work. Luckily the girls are pretty good at sharing and get along like two peas in a pod so sleeping in a queen kinda works out for them.
First I purchased a sweet ruffled pink duvet and sham set from HomeSense in Toronto. Next I found some fun and playful throw pillows from Sun and Stars and Pehr Designs to add that touch of whimsy I think every child’s room needs. I wanted the girls to feel nothing but excited and welcomed to their new home away from home so I dressed the bed up with a few small but fun gifts to make their arrival to Toronto a little bit sweeter.
I think you know by now how much I love hand crafted goods and I was over the moon to stumble upon some really special kid finds right around the corner from our condo. These unique stuffed animals from Cate and Levi were a great and creative buy seeing as you and your child can sew them together yourselves. I knew they were right up my crafty kids alley. Another crafty find was the tea towel decorating kit from Yellow Owl Workshop. The girls dove right into that project and made some adorable tea towels to take on our next picnic.
All in all I think the room turned out perfectly and the girls were pretty darn pleased with their special Toronto space. My favorite part of the whole experience was opening the door to reveal their new room and listening to their squeals of delight! I was able to bring them joy, giggles and a room that felt uniquely theirs without breaking the bank or even much of a sweat. Now that’s what I call a good day!
