Sleepykins // Avie’s dreamy room.
Now here’s a little girl’s room which captivated me at first glance. Avie’s room. The beautiful daughter of the creative and inspirational mumma, Bek Halliday.
Bek has always had a passion for interior styling. “Children’s spaces are definitely the most fun to decorate! You can truly be imaginative and create something magical. I think we all want our kids to grow up surrounded by wonder and a little magic”.
Avie’s room is ever evolving (due to her mumma’s obsession with decorating!). Bek’s is always drawn to the same soft pastel tones. She wanted to create a pretty space which wasn’t overly ‘girly’. Bek loves Scandinavian inspired kids rooms and when designing little Avie’s room, she had a fair idea of what she wanted and also searched the internet and Instagram for inspirational ideas.
Bek’s favourite item in Avie’s room is her painted wall feature with all the bits and bobs on it. Bek was so scared to steer away from the safe white walls, although, the risk definitely paid off.
Avie’s favourite item in her room is her bed! She tends to jump on it… A LOT! “Avie is only four, so I don’t think she really minds what I do with it (her room) for now. Thankfully!
When shopping for her room, there were so many amazing stores that Bek found through Instagram. “This is definitely where I found my favourite pieces for her space. I like to splurge on pieces that I just can’t live without, and source similar pieces to items that were out of my price range. For example, I wanted a bed that I saw at Domayne, although, Avie’s bed is actually from Fantastic Furniture for a quarter of the price.”
Bek also shops on Etsy and scouts local markets and mainstream shops such as Country Road, Cotton On Kids and Typo for fun and quirky pieces; Ikea is a go to place for shelving and frames.
“Sometimes if I can’t find just the right thing, I make it myself. This is how I started my art business. I love to create, I always have. Painting is a strong passion that I have wanted to fulfil for so long. I love the satisfaction of looking at one of my pieces and saying ‘hey, you know what, that’s actually pretty good!’ Ten years ago I wouldn’t of had the confidence to pursue my dream. I guess after having my two babes, the time is just right now”.
