With over 100k fans on Instagram, there isn’t much that Interior Lifestyle blogger and influencer Kerry Lockwood doesn’t know about putting a beautiful space together for her family. So, when it came time to tackle her 10-year-old daughter’s bedroom, a few simple changes made all the difference.
“It’s tricky [as a renter], I’ve had to adapt my style to fit around the house we live in” Kerry explains, but with a love of industrial style softened with touches of glamour, the contrasts of old and new mix perfectly together. There’s no doubt, renting hasn’t impeded Kerry in fitting plenty of her recognisable style throughout her home.
Her daughter’s bedroom, however, was lacking storage space and it was time to create a slightly more grown-up look for Jersey that would take her easily into her teenage years.Smart swaps with multi-functional furniture meant Jersey had even more options for enjoying her bedroom. Swapping out the cabin bed for a single gave the room an airy feeling but Kerry didn’t stop there.
“It’s only a small room so the biggest challenge was making the best use of the space to give us plenty of storage but enough floor space for when her friends come around. So, for example she has a dressing table that doubles up as a desk for when she is using her laptop or doing homework.”
Jersey loves the combination of dusty pink and grey so this was incorporated into a moodboard when the planning work began to ensure everything worked together in the final design.
Kerry chose a laptop from AO as a final flourish to this smart and stylish space. “Jersey loves [the laptop]. She gets much more homework which has to be done on the computer now so it was perfect timing.”
As for her next project, Kerry says there’s always ongoing projects in her home. “My husband jokes and says that if you stand around too long, you’ll get painted!”
Excitedly, Kerry’s next big project is the bathroom which she describes as “a huge challenge but exciting!” If you’d like to follow along with Kerry’s progress, be sure to follow her on Instagram.
