We’re back with another One Room Wonders room transformation today, in partnership with Surround by Laminex!
We recently took up the challenge of transforming this sweet child’s bedroom, in a heritage home in regional Victoria.
For this room, we selected the Surround by Laminex Classic VJ 100 profile, which is a timeless wall panelling profile, with a class V-groove. These timber panels are an excellent option in kids spaces or high traffic areas, because they’re so robust – they stand up really well to bumps and scuffs.
The owners of this home were keen to bring some colour in their baby’s room, and also, to decorate in a way that would last well into the future. So, we selected a sage green to add some depth to the space, and reflect the surrounding landscape. To ensure consistency with the rest of the house, we kept the skirting boards, cornicing, window and door frames in their original warm white.
Furnishing kids rooms is all about longevity – it’s really worth thinking ahead, and purchasing versatile pieces that will last from childhood right through to the teenage years. We updated this room in two stages – to show how versatile pieces like the chest of drawers and checkered rug work equally well in both a baby’s room, and a bigger kids’ space.
It’s so important to consider not just colour, but also texture when decorating. Here, we were inspired by an existing rattan rocking chair, and sourced furniture pieces that continued this textural detail throughout the space. Woven storage boxes and baskets continue this theme, along with tan leather accents (we love the leather-covered coat hooks from local brand Made Measure).
To finish off the space with a contemporary edge, we introduced a bold checkerboard pattern in the floor rug (from GoodSpace.), woven blanket (by Curio Practice) and artwork (by Emma Lipscombe). The perfect, punchy finishing touch!
Surround by Laminex is a new range of modern, pre-primed MDF wall linings, available in a great range of both classic and contemporary profiles – ready to paint. View the full range here, and start reimagining your space!
