One of the best places to spark creativity when decorating is a kid’s bedroom. Here, color and patterns always play an important role by adding personality into the space. Now that summer is fast approaching and my daughters are going to spend more time in our home, I wanted to update their bedroom by incorporating fun accents and rearranging the furniture.

At HomeGoods, I found two beautiful coverlets that served as inspiration for this room. Besides their soft palette and geometric pattern, I love that these can be used as standalone bed coverings — so ideal now that the temperatures are starting rise!

Soft fuchsia euro shams were added to the beds beside two decorative popsicle pillows that scream summer. I kept things simple because I wanted to focus on the wall décor.

Over the back wall, I put up three ledges to display a few canvases I found at HomeGoods with positive and special messages. I added some figurines and framed photos from my girls and also found some metallic triangles that stick to the wall. I love this little geometric detail! Last time I did this room, I painted a couple of abstract flowers with a watercolor style, but now I wanted something simpler with a geometric characteristic.

I opted for framing the wall ledges with a house silhouette painted in white. I love how it enhances the area as well as how simple it was to make. You can try this at home by painting the entire room in one color, then tracing the form and painting it in a contrasting color.

Another update I did in this room, was adding a blackboard above a small table where the little ones usually do their homework. To keep some school supplies or books on hand, I attached a wire shelf to the wall underneath the board. Now this small area is set and functional.

Transforming this room only took some paint, furniture rearrangement and some accents. I played around with patterns to add a modern look in this room, and now it is ready for summer, long nights and lots of sleepovers!
