Considering i’m pretty creative you’d be surprised to hear that my kids rooms aren’t that creative! Some canvases and that’s about it, sssshhhh don’t tell anyone! However the more and more i delve into the world of interior design and expand my creative offerings then I really feel sorry for my boys as I’ve been promising them awesome rooms for a long time now.
So, the OH and I have been discussing swapping the boys rooms about for a month or so now. Their rooms take up the back of the 1st floor of the house. They are essentially all the same size with 2 sharing a Jack & Jill and 1 with its own en-suite. Logic dictated that as H & F are only 14 months apart and Samuel is 5 yrs younger, that H & F share the Jack & Jill and Samuel had his own bathroom. HOWEVER… turns out that Fred and Samuel are really good together, whilst Hen likes a bit of ‘space’, so we’ve decided that in the Summer holidays we’ll look at swapping Henry and Samuel’s rooms. This gives me the perfect opportunity to decorate their rooms as we go.
With Samuel starting school in Sept and still in his cot bed, I feel it’s only fair that I do his room first and give him that ‘big boy’ room he will love and he and his friends can happily spend time in. So over the next few months I’ll be collecting inspiration and goodies from all my favourite (and hopefully some new finds) small businesses in the UK and across the world, as well as a few high street purchases in there to create a truly unique room. Here are a few of my pics so far…
I’d love if you could join me as i design Samuel’s room, follow my mood board on Pinterest to see the look I am going for, and subscribe to follow me as i work through each of the boys rooms over the next year.
