Inspired By This founder Leila Lewis is a business-minded woman with a serious knack for turning ordinary into extraordinary. She founded her own gorgeous wedding, baby and home lifestyle site and she’s the founder and CEO of a wedding and event PR firm. Oh, and did we mention she has three kids?
As if life couldn’t get any busier, Leila’s family recently made a major change: “We just moved into a new home and are starting from scratch,” Leila said. “It was the perfect opportunity to create the dreamiest bedrooms for my kids — capturing their individual personalities without feeling too matchy-matchy.”
Enter Target’s very own dynamic duo, Pillowfort and Cloud Island, two of our exclusive home brands for kids and baby that cover everything from furniture, to bedding and décor. Leila selected the best-of-the-best items to makeover her kiddos new rooms into a stylish playful oasis. After the makeovers were complete, we caught up with Leila to chat about the themes she chose, her favorite products and the surprising place her kids like to hang out. Read all about it, and check out the makeover images, below!
Which themes did you choose for each room?
My daughter's room is “Pink and Playful.” She shared her last room with her two-year-old brother and it was time to switch it up! Her favorite color is pink, so I wanted her to have a space that was bright, happy and full of color. My middle boy's room has an “Adventurous Mountain” theme with black and white and pops of green to showcase subtle hints of outdoor colors. The nursery has a sweet, beachy theme with soothing neutrals and accents of blue.
What are some of your favorite Pillowfort items selected for the bedrooms?
In my daughter's room there were a few pieces I had to have, like the Swan Head Wall Décor, Pom Pom Comforter and Ballerina Throw Pillow. They helped bring the overall theme to life, and infused lots of pink. In the boys' playroom/bedroom, I fell in love with the Cloud Decorative Wall Shelves, Stuffed Animal Bear, Touch Desk Lamp in Forest Green and the Black and White Scallop Rug — it was the perfect way to bring elements of the outdoors in!
What are some of your favorite items you selected for the nursery?
The Babyletto Lolly Convertible Crib was a must-have for our beach-themed nursery — the soft, calming colors really set the tone for the space. I placed the Herringbone Storage Bin on the floor right by his play area as a stylish way to hold the baby's toys and blankets right next to where we’ll use them the most. I also love my Scallop Accent Table for holding books that I’ll read to my little guy before bedtime.
As a mom, why do you like Pillowfort and Cloud Island for your kids’ rooms?
I love that the products are so kid-friendly. They can sit on the beds that are low to the ground and cuddle with the cozy blankets, and I'm not worried about them falling off. Plus the rugs I have in each room are so soft that they prefer to spend time on the floor! Giving each child a space that is different from the next, and that allows them to have something completely their own, is the best decision I made.
