We had a plan to decorate Daisy’s bedroom for her before the baby comes along – as a bit of a present to her and hopefully an incentive to keep her in there a bit more at night! It hasn’t ever been decorated specifically for her, it was painted gray as a spare room and when we moved her into it (as it was bigger than her old room) we just kept the gray walls.The room doesn’t get a lot of light, so I definitely want to make it lighter and warmer in there. Whilst looking at bedding the other day, I made the mistake of asking Daisy what colour she wanted in her ‘new big girl room’, to which she replied… “Purple!” Hmm… This however quickly changed to “Yellow!” and now I’m pretty sure she’s following my decor habits in that I get bored quickly, and want to change things up on a regular basis. So, I’m going to stick to what I normally do, keeping the basics quite neutral and then add some colour with accessories, which we can change out anytime.
We’re going to be getting a new bed eventually and I knew a while back I wanted one of the IKEA day beds that extend to a double if needed. This one is on the shopping list, the floor is a lovely wood effect vinyl and we have a fluffy cream/white rug in there too, which will probably stay, as well as the giant tissue paper flower I bagged from an M&S window display!Her IKEA kitchen is in her room now to make more room in the playroom (you can see the updates for that here) and the only other furniture will possibly be a chest of drawers. There’s a little nook area for a wardrobe that doesn’t work too well as it’s a bit too deep, so I’ll be kitting that out with rails and shelves to make the most of the space.
I’ve already got some gorgeous curtains that are sort of a watercolour print in purples, pinks and peach, and the dreamy storage stool below from my January Favourites. I’m still undecided on wallpaper/wall decals/paint effects etc, but really fancy some sort of feature wall. I’d like some quirky wall prints too and LOVE these ones on Etsy, which are downloadable too, so you just print them yourself.Let me know your go to shops for children’s decor or any feature wall ideas you used for your little ones. Pregnancy has me undecided about everything, so I need all the help guys!
