When home is your school, you need a proper homeschooling room. So, I helped my sister makeover a neglected room inspired by a splash of colour to create a kid-approved room design.
Keep reading to find out what I used as inspiration for the amazing wall colour.

The best part about the formerly neglected little room located at the end of my sister Elizabeth’s home (beside the most beautiful room in the world) is that it has windows on two sides!
A few months ago my sister and I decided to turn this room (that was basically being used for storage) into a proper homeschooling room. Here were our homeschool room ideas.
Choosing the paint colour was easy, I simply found one that matched the X ottomans (in the photo above) that sit in front of the fireplace to create flow!
I got the stamp of approval from William and Markus. They immediately declared it a ‘kids colour’. Hooray!

Here was the before photo. As you can imagine, this room was never used:
And here’s the much better after:
William and Markus love lego, and it turns out, it’s a transferable skill in the real world!
They assembled their desks (below) and the IKEA cabinets that went into this room perfectly. And super fast!
See the basket with the faux fern in it? That was the best way to hide the internet boxes.
Here’s a look at the other side of the room:
I love the way drapery (hung BESIDE the windows, never OVER the window) instantly makes the door look bigger!
The IKEA drapes were perfect in this room. Just enough pattern to add interest without being too busy!
We also installed a row of skinny shelving to display all their art and then it can easily be rotated (below):
My nephews love their new school room and the best part is, it’s close to Mom who’s always in the kitchen. The kitchen makeover will be up soon as well!
