One day soon I’m hoping our house will sell and we will get a new house . The thought of moving does stress me out . The last time we moved we were able to move all of our bits in our cars. Well that’s not going to happen this time . It’s going to take a lot more than two cars ! The one thing I am looking forward to doing it decorating.
So whilst we’re still in our house I though it would be beneficial to make a plan of what I would like to do to some of the rooms when we do get a new house. Two of the main rooms I would want to be sorted straight away are the kid’s bedroom . So I thought this would be the best place to start.
Starting with Alby’s bedroom
When we decorated Alby’s room I brought too much paper on purpose . Mainly because it was a bargain I think it had 50% off in Laura Ashley . We knew when we decorated Alby’s room that we would be moving in the near future . So I wanted to buy enough to potentially paper a wall in the next house . Or even cover some canvas in wallpaper to add a pop of colour and the cute monkeys design to his new room.
Whilst Alby’s little I want to keep his room pretty simple . There is nothing worse than too much going on. It needs to be a place he can chill out in ready for sleep.
Now Ava’s bedroom at the moment isn’t completely how I would want it . Before she was in there it was a play room. Like I said before we knew we were moving in the near future so we didn’t really see the point in doing too much too it.
Ava has a bunny that she takes everywhere with her . She loves anything with bunnies on so I think I would want to incorporate this into her new room. I have been having a search through Pinterest and here are some things I love and think Ava would love too
The one thing I would want this time is a good black out blind that doesn’t have to stick on the windows . As the one we have at the moment is constantly stuck to the windows . Meaning I’m unable to open the windows or let any natural light in very easily . Plus it does look the nicest from the outside. I have found some really nice ones on Thomas Sanderson‘s website they even have some specific ones made for children’s bedrooms which are child safe. Which is important to me. As Ava is one that likes to mess.
I would also love to have a canopy over her bed I think these look so cute. With some fairly lights in would be amazing. Ava doesn’t like to sleep in the dark so this would be a great alternative to her night-light. Plus it would just look adorable. We do have at the moment some bunting in both children’s rooms with their names on but I would like to do some decopatch letter for each of them to display in their room. I think it’s a great way to add some colour to a room.
Thankfully we already have all the furniture we need so we wont have to go and buy that. In the future I would like to change Alby’s furniture., As even though we spent a lot of money on it the draws and the wardrobe haven’t really stood the test of time.
If there was one thing your could change about your child’s bedroom what would it be ?
