Horse Inspired Girl’s Room – Equestrian In Training
When we were approached to design a Horse inspired bedroom we were intrigued, this was a first for us. We love getting to know our littlest clients, although Reese isn’t really that little. She is a very mature 9 year old that loves riding horses all year round. A horse inspired room wasn’t even a question for her.
Reese and I share a birthday just a couple days apart so I feel like we are on the same page when it comes to creativity. She’s got big ideas and will definitely put them to good use as she gets older. She is a girl after my own heart and one of the sweetest little equestrians I know.
I sat down with Reese and she made it very clear that she loved horses, the color aqua and hanging with her friends any chance she could get.
I originally took what she had asked for and pulled in some of the elements she had mentioned. This was the original design board we presented to her.
We showed this to Reese and she said “Well, it’s pretty but you don’t understand, I really like horses” Apparently the horse pillow I selected wasn’t cutting it! Ha! I love a girl that knows what she likes. Takes one to know one I guess. So I went back to the drawing board. Sometimes rooms evolve a little until it is just right. I took her comments to heart and gave her what I had hoped she really wanted.
This is what I showed her next!
Ready to see how it turned out? Sometimes it is crazy to see how much the actual room looks exactly like I imagined it in my head and on my design board. This room was no exception.
A reading nook was a must for Reese! She loves to read and she needed to have a comfy spot to plop down and get lost in a book.
Desk for homework? Yes please! Maybe doing homework will be just a little less tedious when you are doing it in your cute room…. we like to think so anyway.
This art wall was especially fun for me to create. I love to make things so I took the opportunity to get creative an custom make a couple things special for Reese for her art wall. I cross stitched the large “R” that I found at Hobby Lobby. I found some yarn coordinating with the colors in her room and just made up the pattern as I went.
What about that cute unicorn on the wall? Well, the horse head was white, I found it at Homegoods and spray painted it gold. Gosh I love spraypaint!!
I crafted a horn out of some bendable cardboard and added different colored string with my trusty glue gun.
Last but not least, this roller skate is a little close to my heart. I loved to roller skate when I was little and so does Reese. I just had to design her a custom roller skate for her wall. Yep, that is a real shoe lace. This cute skate is now available for purchase in our shop.
Just a few more details to round our this happy little space.
What do you think? Does this room make you happy?
