| Case Study: Girls Bedroom Styling |

I had so much fun helping the Kinsley family to design both of their daughter’s new bedrooms. Becky came to me feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the choices, and her girls had some pretty strong ideas about how they both wanted their rooms to look. Becky struggled a bit with their vision… So we sat down with a cuppa and made it all happen. How?

Let’s hear it from the source 🙂

Designing our girl’s bedrooms was so much easier than I thought!
This is how we did it!

 Why did you decide you needed a home stylist?

In the past we have played it quite safe and not really thought too much about the details. This time, we wanted the rooms to reflect the girls’ personalities and we wanted something that we knew they would LOVE! Doing it on my own, would have been overwhelming and I wouldn’t have tried anything new.

 Why you chose to work with Anna?

I follow Anna’s Blog and love her style – I knew she could create something really fun and fresh. I was worried about costs at first but she seemed pretty down to earth and was surprisingly, really affordable. She was happy to help with as much or as little of the project as we wanted – I loved this flexibility. It meant the family could all get involved in the designs, but that she was helping steer our conversations and purchases. Even her purchase ideas were affordable. She kept to our budget and was happy to re-use the furniture we had, if it worked with the colour scheme or gave options of lower cost items if it didn’t.

 How did you find the process from start to finish?

The whole process was exciting and fun. From the first day we started the discussions, I knew it was going to look great. Anna helped me take a few risks (stars on walls!) but really listened to what the girls liked. She sent through initial ideas and moodboards so I could sit with the girls discussing what they liked and didn’t. They squealed with excitement and kept asking to look back at them over the following weeks as we finished off the decorating. I also loved the links to purchase ideas, saving me hours searching the internet for each thing. There were some soft furnishings I found myself but I found it so helpful having the moodboards as a reference guide and Anna was really supportive of me having input too.

 Was it a fun/easy process?

It was so much easier than I thought. A quick initial chat, then Anna sent through her first ideas. Once we were all happy with the colour scheme and themes Anna created a moodboard as a reference guide and some possible purchase items. She even came over to help me put the final touches to the room. Anna always seemed really happy to help and appeared as excited by the project as us. No question was a silly one which made me feel confident to ask advice or try something different.

 Did your family got involved designing the rooms and how did they find working on this project?

We were ALL involved and we LOVED it!

 Was the result what you expected?

Yes. I was convinced we wouldn’t be able to make it look like the girls wanted or that I would be disappointed in some way. Although the rooms aren’t replicas of the moodboards, they have the same ‘feel’ and the moodboards  kept me focused so the end result looks great!

We’ve had so many positive comments from friends, family and neighbours as we have shown them around.

 Would you work with Anna again?

Absolutely! I am already thinking which room to attack next! I would also definitely recommend working with Anna to anyone. She’s amazing!
