It was no surprise to me that Amanda Lee, owner of Interior Motives Aus, would have a stunning room to share with us. Interior Motives Aus is without doubt one of our favourite stores featuring beautifully crafted leather and timber homewares. Amanda’s innate style and appreciation for quality materials and workmanship is clear in this gorgeous room for her daughter, Ruby.
A perfect balance of Scandi x Boho, the textures and neutral palatte create a tranquil and welcoming space for six-year-old Ruby to enjoy now and into the future.
Keep reading for Amanda’s tips on creating this special room and her must have, favourite items in the room.
TELL US ABOUT THE OWNER OF THIS BEAUTIFUL SCANDI x BOHO ROOM:-
“Ruby is my beautiful, fun loving 6yr old. She LOVES animals and nature but is also a fan of sparkles, craft & reading!”
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT INTERIOR MOTIVES AUS:
“At Interior Motives Aus we create leather & timber homewares including shelving, poster hangers & leather handles. I started the business about 3 years ago, creating products for the home, now my husband Evan works alongside me building the business & creating a happy lifestyle for our family.”
WHAT WAS THE BRIEF FOR THIS ROOM?
“Because Ruby loves animals & nature, I needed to bring those elements into her room in a subtle way. I wanted her room to feel fresh & light and most of all make Ruby feel special.”
WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION?
“Texture! I wanted to create a space inspired by the Scandi/Boho theme but incorporate it into a room suited to a 6yr old. I used a mix of materials/texture to soften the room but also kept it minimal.”
“Our home has a Scandi theme which I wanted to continue in Ruby’s room by bringing in timber, natural leather and painting the walls white. Then came Ruby’s favourite colour – pink!”
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FEATURE IN THE ROOM AND WHY?
“Definitely the wallpaper! We didn’t have a big space to work with in Ruby’s room, as her bed takes up most of the room. So the wallpaper really allowed a big impact without sacrificing any space. It also has an amazing canvas texture which Ruby loves.”
WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
“The room size. There are so many features that I would have loved to incorporate like a craft table/desk but we just didn’t have the space to include it.”
WHAT IS YOUR OVERALL FAVOURITE THING ABOUT THIS SPACE?
“Probably the feel of the room. It really is a special space that makes me smile whenever I walk past her door.”
