We are planning on moving house soon, and when we do, the boy will get a new room – and that means I can plan a new room theme!
This is the boys current room. I love it – it’s colourful, it’s light (more on that later!) and it’s welcoming. I love all the IKEA furniture we have. There’s just one issue – the boy doesn’t like it! I don’t know if it’s because he just won’t play on his own, or if the room just isn’t him. I’ll admit he wasn’t involved in the planning process!
The rug is from a friend who bought it for Rian when he was born – I don’t think it’s actually meant to be a rug, but I’ve always used it as one. It’s probably not very five year old boy though is it? The TeePee (which I LOVE!) is from a place I can’t remember, annoyingly.
But, he is getting bigger. And when we move I want him to have a room that’s a bit more…boy I guess, rather than toddler *sobs*
One of the main things of course is the bed. I was happy with IKEA when he was tiny, because why spend loads on something he’d grow out of? And it is hard-wearing enough to withstand the CONSTANT JUMPING for at least a few years! But I want the next bed to really last, and also to withstand the no doubt CONSTANT JUMPING.
I really love the Great Little Trading Company – and I love this Paddington bed with the den underneath, which would replace the teepee (which isn’t played with any more!)
This one has a slide out desk, which appeals to every geeky furniture space saving device fibre in my body. Love! Not to even mention the built in bookshelf *heart shaped eyes*
The boy would probably want some say in his next room, and I’m pretty sure that say will mainly involve Star Wars, West Ham, Star Wars, Lego…and did I mention Star Wars? They’ve been banned from playing it at school apparently (some game, not the movie) so it’s forbidden fruit at the moment and even more beguiling as a result.
This lamp has made me laugh more than I probably should have (I’m such a child)
And if we had a roof attic room (dream house mode!) then these Star Wars VELUX blinds would be amazing! They’re also blackout, which would be great in the summer (see above – nice light room = 6am wake up calls!!)
I’m also just a little bit in love with this wall decal. *Sigh*
