I should have been doing home posts since we moved to Charleston (well, Summerville) last year because we have done SO much to our little townhouse! But I think I’ve been putting it off because everything isn’t quite finished yet. There’s little things here and there that need to be done, decor touches that need to be added, etc. BUT that’s no reason not share the process, right?!
So today I’m sharing two of my favorite rooms in our house, surprise surprise, our kid’s bedrooms!
I was super excited about putting together Zakiyah’s room when we moved here because she’s never had her own room. Yes, she slept and shared a room with us for all of her first 5 (almost 6) years of life. When decorating and choosing things for Zakiyah’s room, I knew I didn’t want it to be “babyish” or too “little girl” if you know what I mean. I love kids rooms that are designed for the kids to grow into, and to be honest, that’s more my style. I dress her like I would dress myself, so I’ll decorate her room the same.
With this house, Zac and I are all about neutrals and we carried that into the kid’s rooms as well. So with Zakiyah we chose black and white with hints of blush and gold. Girly, but not too little kid-ish. We got everything for her room from either Ikea or Target with the exception of a few things from HomeGoods. The arrow, Zac made a few years ago which if you’ve been following along for awhile now, you may recognize from this or this Instagram post.

This picture may seem like it’s in black and white, but that’s because Legend’s room is black, white and grey! Same concept when it came to Zakiyah’s room, I did not want it to be baby-ish and this is definitely a room Legend can grow into.
I knew I wanted an accent wall behind the crib and Zac had this idea to create a faux concrete wall and I’m slightly obsessed with how it turned out! I also wanted his room to be super simple and open, leaving plenty of room for all the things he’ll eventually accumulate.
