A coastal bedroom for a cool, classy tween. Honestly, today’s kids are so sophisticated by the time they reach ten, aren't they? When I was 11 I was riding my purple bicycle with handlebar streamers and spokey-dokes through paddocks and down to the local lolly shop to stock up on candy bracelets. You could usually find me making Milos with an 80:20 Milo to milk ratio, eating Tomato Sauce Samboys and watching Agro’s Cartoon Connection as long as I wasn’t duct-taped to the power pole out the front of our house by my older brother or swinging by my knees in our backyard mango tree. Tween wasn’t even a word because we didn’t need it. We were kids through and through until at least fourteen. These days kids know about style and aesthetics, dressing like they’re always ready for a photoshoot, and definitely know what they DO and DON'T like.
For this laidback look we chose Hawaiian inspired wallpaper and print from Boho Art & Styling and used lots of beautiful rattan and cane to give that cool, vintage surfer vibe that would grow with this coastal girl well into her late teens. This was a massive hit with this sophisticated tweeny!
