We all know children’s imaginations can run wild, especially when it comes time for them to help decorate their bedrooms! Today we’re excited to feature and introduce LouLou Marshall of LouLous Whimsicals. LouLou is a designer, muralist and product room designer. She has been designing and illustrating childrens rooms, both residential and commercial, for over 18 years. LouLou enjoys creating and adding unique pieces to these rooms, and she has found great pieces to refurbish at estate and yard sales, church bazaars and flea markets. Her whimsical room designs and accessories engage children with colorful characters and humorous messages, bringing joy, delight and interaction for everyone.
For our “Decorating on a Dime” series, LouLou shares some of her awesome work with us! With a little artistic skills, some bargain hunting and an imagination, you can start upcycling second hand furniture and bring it to life for any child’s bedroom!
