Today is an exciting day people. I have teamed up with 5 amazing bloggers to decorate an entire home using only IKEA products. It’s the brain child of Katja who is basically an IKEA sensei.
Each of us was randomly assigned a room (done via cute video and all). Then we created a mood board exclusively with IKEA products. I got kid’s room which is a great follow up to nursery week. So once that baby is done being well a baby, here’s some big kid room inspiration (assuming the kid is a girl).
1. MASKROS Pendant Lamp // 2. KORT Art Cards // 3. KAJSAMIA Curtains
4. OLUNDA Picture //5. FICUS LYRATA //6. SALMBAR Plant Pot
7. SAMSPELT Deer //8. GASPA Duvet // 9. ALGORT Fabric
10. FJELLSE bed // 11. LED Lamp //12. SELJE Nightstand
13. AGEN Child’s Chair // 14. RIBBA Picture Ledges (photo via)
15. LAPPJUNG RUTA Rug
There was a lot of pattern going on in this room, so I wanted to keep the main pieces (rug, curtains, duvet) black and white. I feel like kid’s rooms can get crazy in a hurry with all their toys and general kid stuff. It’s best to keep pattern and color down to a minimum. Another bonus to the black and white base is that you can change your mind about the pop colors on a whim. You aren’t suck.
I threw in a little DIY too. I love the fabric at IKEA, so I knew I had to work it in somewhere. I found that beautiful pink, orange, and gray fabric to upholster the bed in following this tutorial. Aren’t feeling that ambitious? Buy the fabric and make pillows or a duvet with it. That fabric makes the room.
On our last IKEA trip, I saw the wicker chairs in child size. It took a lot for me to hold off buying them. They are adorable. I like the texture it brings to the room, but they would be great for outdoors too. We had the picture ledges as a bookcase in Ramona’s nursery. It was one of my favorite things. If you can do floor to ceiling with it, then go for it!

**None of us were perked or encouraged by IKEA to post this. It’s just something Katja wanted to do, and we all thought it was too awesome to pass up! Hope you enjoyed it!
