Interior designers are such clever folk! We have the pleasure of working alongside many such vibrant, creative designers. We thought it only fair that we share with you some of the many little tricks, tips and sources of inspiration they share with us!
We would proudly like to introduce to you our first of many in our Designer Series, the creative behind this gorgeous children’s bedroom.
The Designer: Diana Scully of Spaces by Diana

Favourite magazine: Vogue living- interiors, travel & shopping!
Best tip for designing a kids room? Don’t be conservative! Express personality like your child does! A beautiful rug with gorgeous colour and pattern is always a great foundation for a child’s room.
The Brief: Create a modern, bright & exciting space for a weekly sleepover with twin grandchildren, that would work in the clients period style home. This new bedroom would need to reflect the individual personalities & interests of the 5 year old twins. Read: Pink, fairies & princesses for the little lady and robots & the colour blue for the little gent!
The inspiration: Diana found inspiration in the kids vibrant personalities. Their playfulness and endless smiles they brought to the faces of her client and her husband inspired a joyful room using plenty of colour and pattern. Blessed with lovely high ceilings, she took the opportunity to add some detail to the walls and use lighting as a feature.
The Result: The key to this room is the clever use of both children’s favourite colours in an Armadillo & co. customised floor rug. It seamlessly blends together the two sides of the room, keeping it feeling unified while still expressing the uniqueness of the twins.
Layered wool blankets from uimi, Bemboka & St Albans allow the children to layer up as needed from summer through winter. Choosing blankets in both colourful prints and neutral base colours will allow the room to grow up as they do.
The best part? The children absolutely love it! Sleepovers have never been more fun.
