In October last year we introduced you to Michelle Halford from interior styling blog The Design Chaser and her style map that she developed for styling her son’s new bedroom and now we're pleased to show you the end result. A style map is a type of collage that holds a collection of pictures, text and colour that designers use as guidance and to draw inspiration from when styling a room.
Michelle’s style map included an array of furnishings and accessories in her chosen colour pallet. Her love for Scandinavian interior styling has exuded into her own home, drawing inspiration from colour and textures to style her home. Michelle’s interior style throughout her home portrays white walls, clean lines, light wood features and lots of space with hints of peach hues. Michelle opted for a monochrome design for her son’s room mixing the old with the new to create a fresh and contemporary space.
Michelle has used a range of furnishings mixed with monochrome pictures, accessories and splashes of blue and yellow to style her son's bedroom. Amongst the images on Michelle’s style map it included Mocka’s 6 Cube Storage Unit with black doors and Mocka’s 2 Drawer Post Box in white and it's great to see them make it into the final room design.
Michelle used Mocka’s Storage Unit as a stylish storage and display space for her son’s room. The design of the Storage Unit allows you to hide away items that you don’t want seen and show off items that you love in the display cubes, making this a trendy and practical piece of furniture. Michelle used her Storage Unit to hold her son’s favourite books and treasured toys. Mocka’s Storage Units are perfect for children’s rooms; if their tastes change you can simply remove the doors and change the colour of them to match your child’s taste.
Michelle also used Mocka’s 2 Drawer Post Box as a bedside table. Kids love the cool and contemporary design of Mocka’s Post Boxes! They make great bedside tables for children as the design allows them to store their bedtime essentials in one drawer and display their figurines or ornaments in the other. The top of the Post Box is also great for holding a bedside lamp.
Michelle reused her son’s bed and placed drawers underneath for extra storage space. Both of Michelle’s sons have a bean bag in their bedrooms which makes the ideal comfy seat for reading their books. To achieve this look yourself, you can use Mocka’s Brooklyn Single Bed and Mocka’s Kids Bean Bag in black.
If you are looking to create a contemporary look just like Michelle did with her son’s bedroom then start by creating your very own style map. You will be surprised at the great looks that you can create by mixing and matching the old with the new!
