Hayneedle partnered with the upcoming comedy movie “Dog Days” to provide furnishings and décor for two of the film’s home-based sets. Here we present some of our favorite pieces and styles from this silver-screen bedroom …
Hayneedle’s Sweet Retreat
In this movie set, adopted daughter Amelia (Elizabeth Caro) is welcomed into her new bedroom by parents Grace and Kurt (Eva Longoria and Rob Corddry). Described by production designer Marcia Hinds as “heavenly, adorable, and a little bit on the eclectic side,” this kids bedroom look is totally dreamy – and totally easy to achieve in your own home. (Because let’s be honest – who wouldn’t want a bona fide Hollywood set in their home?)
We’ll show you how to recreate this look, both with products from the film and some of our favorite lookalikes. Whether you’re designing for a little one or just seeking some inspiration for yourself (we won’t judge), we’ve got all the pieces you need to create a sweet escape of your own. Sounds dreamy, right?
The beauty of Amelia’s bedroom is that the pieces aren’t matchy-matchy, but still create a cohesive look. Mixing styles and silhouettes but maintaining an all-white palette allows the space to exude personality and fun without sacrificing style. Explore some of our favorite styles from the following categories …
DHP’s white Jenny Lind bed is the star of the set, but you can easily replicate the look in your home with a similar spindled bed. The classic silhouette is sure to stand the test of time, so even if your little one eventually outgrows her wall color or décor, her bed will still remain a staple for her space.
The Zayley nightstand is Hayneedle’s silver-screen celebrity, but we’ve got plenty of other styles to help you get the look. We’re especially fond of the eye-catching detail on the upper drawer – to add in some detail of your own, look for pieces with carving, colored hardware, or open shelves.
Continuing the trend of mixed furniture with matched finishes, we love the subtle nod the Lake House dresser gives to the other pieces in the set. The short, spindled legs are a perfect complement to the bed frame, while the clean, traditional design builds cohesion with the nightstand – all without going too one-note.
To achieve the playful, eclectic look of Amelia’s room, follow the same principles when picking décor as when picking furniture. Look for pieces with contrasting details, but a general sense of cohesion. Decide on a general color palette to keep the look consistent, but feel free to add in bolder pops of color to accent the space.
Bedding and Rugs
Try mixing patterns to create an eclectic space that reflects a child’s carefree spirit. Try a bold patterned quilt at the foot of a more subtle comforter, or a variety of decorative pillows to add dimension to the bed. Patterned rugs add excitement to the floor – try using two or more rugs in contrasting patterns for an ultra-eclectic look.
Use a variety of mixed-and-matched lamps and night lights to offer your little one plenty of soft, warm light for reading or relaxing. For a fun twist on a ceiling staple, look for ceiling fans with decorative blades. Whether the fan is spinning or still, she’ll love the extra pop of color and pattern overhead.
To add some character to the walls, consider creating a gallery of fun, cheery artwork. Paintings, 3-D wall décor, framed prints, and photos all add a touch of personalization and charm. If the paint color leaves the room feeling a little blah, add a fresh coat to upgrade the space in a snap. We love the bluish-green shade from Amelia’s room – it’s calming, gender-neutral, and would look just as at-home in a tween or teen’s room.
Playtime and Storage
A kid’s room isn’t complete without space for play – and with playtime comes the need for storage, and lots of it. Classic cubbies and chests are perfect for keeping clutter at bay, from toys and costumes to books and school supplies. Incorporate an indoor teepee for a private play area, or make space for tea parties and art projects with a table and chairs.
