Oh, the task was daunting. It was nearly impossible. How-to-design a shared bedroom for seven kids. As challenging as this may sound, we had to make it work. The grandparents wanted to transform a spare bedroom into a sleepover delight for their seven grandchildren. The kids’ age ranged from three-years-old to eleven-years-old, and we were dealing with boys and girls. We used neutral décor, personal touches, and maximized its functionality in order to design a room for seven kids.
Choose the right furniture
Forget about the bunk beds. To avoid making this space look super crowded with heavy and dark bunk beds, we chose versatile white beds with trundles. Their clean lines complement any style, while the beds’ compact proportions make it easier to arrange them in the space. The beds worked really well placed against each other as well as against the wall. And the rollout bottom trundles allow lots of room for a play area when they are not in use.
Pick timeless décor
We worked with lots of different patterns and textures to create a gender-neutral bedroom. Mixing stripes in bold colors with geometric patterns give this room an eclectic and fun look. We’ve placed richly-hued pillows in different sizes and shapes for an added detail. Large and graphic fruit prints along with geometric boomerang wall decals bring a lot of color and interest to the walls. Finally, two sculptural lamps make a statement around the beds.
Create storage space
We placed some strong and sturdy storage bins under one of the beds to store daily items. We also added a graphic printed basket for additional storage while four hooks can keep coats and bags organized. The best of all storage areas in this shared bedroom is the bold-colored green locker. This locker is such a statement piece in this room. The kids love the locker, it really sets the tone for this sleepover room.
Make it personal
In order to make this room feel personal, we created a gallery-wall with all seven kids’ pictures. All seven photographs were framed in a modern white frame. The simplicity of this frame made it a breeze to create a gallery-wall.
Oh, the Holidays are approaching quickly. Temperatures have dropped and boot season has officially started around here. Seems like we are getting in the mood for hot chocolate, soups, and holiday decorations. While I don’t enjoy cold weather too much, I do love this time of the year. So let’s start it off by setting a gorgeous, and yet kid-friendly Thanksgiving table, shall we?
For this beautiful table set-up, we used a DIY Kraft paper runner adorned with washi tape and a Thanksgiving printable. Do you want to see more? Head on to Project Nursery here to see more photos and read about all the details.

Halloween has become one of my favorite times of the year to celebrate with the kids. We love to decorate our house, we love to wear costumes, and we absolutely love to go trick-or-treating. I am usually a practical person, I think. Well, at least most of the time. And when it comes to seasonal decorating, I like to make it easy, but still exciting. So here are my 3 tips for when you think about your Halloween décor this year.
1. Group black elements together
In order to change the vibe in our living room, I tackled our coffee table with a few black pumpkins, and a decorative black vase I keep in my bedroom. This is a simple look, and yet a very “halloweenish” one. So, if you have a couple of black décor items around your house, bring them together and dress up your coffee table. Black candles with simple candle holders is a great choice. Just add a couple small store bought pumpkins and you are all set.

For this partnership, I will be writing about one DIY project every month. These projects will range from simple, yet elegant décor for kids’ spaces, to free printables and more. So let me give you a sneak peek of our first DIY project for Project Nursery.
Because almost every baby will have a difficult time transitioning from crib to big bed, we decided to create a DIY headboard to make that milestone more fun. For more details and to see all instructions about this very simple DIY project, visit Project Nursery here.

I have a fun and exciting project in my hands. I just started to brainstorm about a makeover for my nephew’s bedroom. This room has a great size and a huge window, however, somehow this room suffer from poor lighting syndrome. How did that happen? Perhaps the oversized bunk bed is the one to blame. After all, this bunk bed is in fact, kind of large, dark, and too heavy for the bedroom. Or maybe, just maybe, the dated green walls are making this room look darker than it really is. Besides the outdated issues we have to take care of, I also need to address the problem of functionality. Lucas is 10-years-old and needs a desk area, better storage, and great lighting for book reading in bed. Another problem is that most of the décor items in his room don’t relate to him anymore.
So, to kick off this project, I created the mood board below focusing on timeless items. For this first design board, I am keeping things more on the monochromatic side. But once we have all the wall art, trophies, photos, and books, his room will be filled with pops of color. When creating a space for a child, I like to create an excellent base and ideal workflow for the room. The furniture, desk, shelves, lighting should be timeless items that will work for the child now as well as in 5 years. There is no need to get a full bedroom makeover in the near future. When that time comes, I hope to be able to change just decorative items that will relate to a 15-year-old instead of a 10-year-old.
I do believe this little project will take some time to tackle it. But I will keep updating its progress here on the blog.
Here are the sources for the boy bedroom makeover design board:
Shelves. Chair. Pillow. Bedding. Lighting. Night Stand. Drum Sticks. Poster. Acrylic Shelves.

The Rio 2016 Olympic games is in full swing and we have been enjoying this experience with the kids to the fullest. The atmosphere here is so amazing and some of the events/games we got to watch were a lot of fun. Just to get an idea, think Michael Phelps live and a picture of Bela with gymnast Ragan Smith. All these Olympic athletes are pretty amazing to watch. As a matter of fact, we have enjoyed this trip so much that we thought that maybe, just maybe, we could make trips to every Olympic game a family tradition. Does anybody want to join us in Tokyo?!
Here are some of our travel scenes for my weekly photo challenge.
