Welcome to our latest project reveal: "Olive Whimsy" – a little girl's bedroom that embodies the spirit of growth and imagination. In this space, we dared to be different by taking an unconventional approach: layering the ceiling with floral wallpaper. This unique choice not only draws the eye upward, creating a sense of height and drama, but also envelops the room in a canopy of blooms, making it feel like a private garden. The pop of olive green breathes life into the space, harmonizing with the florals to create a vibrant yet soothing haven. Join us as we explore how these thoughtful design choices transform an ordinary room into a whimsical escape.

For "Olive Whimsy," our goal was to create a room that would inspire and delight, yet still provide the comfort and tranquility needed for restful nights. Choosing the floral ceiling wallpaper was a bold move that paid off beautifully. The pattern is reminiscent of a spring meadow, with subtle hues that complement rather than overwhelm the senses. This ceiling treatment acts as the room's crowning glory, setting a playful and artistic tone that encourages imagination.


To ground the whimsy of the ceiling and tie the room together, we introduced a rich olive green on key accent pieces. This choice was more than aesthetic; it was about bringing a piece of nature inside, mirroring the outside world in a controlled, stylized manner. The olive green not only adds depth and sophistication but also enhances the room's connection to the natural world, promoting calm and grounding the space.


Lighting was another critical aspect. We chose fixtures that cast soft, warm glows—imitating the natural light that filters through tree leaves. This lighting strategy enhances the room's overall ambiance, making the floral patterns on the ceiling come alive at different times of the day.


When designing a bedroom for little ones, remember that combining functional design with creative elements not only makes the space appealing but also stimulates their imagination and growth—turning everyday environments into places of wonder and joy.
