Real kids room: Meredith Gaston-inspired bedroom

More real kids' room goodness from the Ivens family for you today. Kelly Ivens took a different approach from her son Kirby's room when designing her daughter Lexi's space. The red, pink and white colour theme is built around two gorgeous Meredith Gaston original canvases, custom-designed to feature the family's dogs. It's a light, bright, inspiring room that I'm sure her daughter will love for years.

Lexi's Room (age 5)

Lexi's room has been designed to incorporate the bold red, pale pink and white colour palette in the artworks. It's bright, light and fun. The lush charcoal grey carpet is a great contrast and provides a strong platform for the light, bright colours - and ties beautifully with the dogs and touches of grey in the Meredith Gaston canvases. Keeping all the furniture white and the walls neutral allows the artwork to really shine.
