Last autumn, I decorated my son’s bedroom and shared a few snippets of the progress. If you missed it, have a look at the Before post to see what a mess of a room we had to deal with (it’s entertaining, I promise). And if you’d like, you can catch up on these progress posts: Painted IKEA Wardrobe, Watercolour Safari Animal Art Gallery, Stripes in Reading Nook and Tips for Creating a Fun & Cosy Reading Nook (post links to an e-magazine).
The room was completed months ago, but now fiiiiiiinally getting the chance to showing you the full reveal. I’ve included all the product sources I can think of, but if you have any questions, please let me know!
THE BED CORNER
The walls were painted in Little Greene’s Deep Space Blue (Intelligent Matt). This blue is incredible – deep yet vibrant and rich so you feel goooood when you’re in the room and everything looks so gorgeous against it. The bedding is from Designers Guild (this set is no longer sold). The crate was purchased from Apple Crates and the yellow Newgate Dome II Alarm Clock from Red Candy.
The RIBBA picture ledge, black frames and HEKTAR clamp lamp are from IKEA. The Dr Seuss art is a limited edition screen print by Barry D Bulsara. The Legoman and Airplane patent prints are from Bomedo while the Animal World Map is from ArtPause.
We replaced the venetian blind with a two layer window treatment: (1) a sheer blind from Dunelm, installed within the window recess which provides privacy and reduces sun glare while still allowing light in; (2) a blackout blind from 247blinds, installed outside the window.
THE REST OF THE ROOM
The chair on the left is vintage and the forest cushion on it was purchased from Tikamoon.
This kid’s collections are cooler than mine! He’s 3. Hmm. The little shelves were ordered to size from Mersey MPP and we already had the brackets.
The bookshelves are thick clear acrylic display racks from 3ddisplays. I love them, they’re sturdy, keep the books in place and allow the gorgeous picture book covers to take the stage while humbly disappearing from view. They are very similar to the highly fussed over Ubabub Booksee Shelf, but without the extortionate price tag.
The poster was something I quickly cobbled together on my computer. The painted stripes are explained here. Cushions from left to right are from: Happy Friday (purchased from Achica), Malini (purchased from Achica), I made it from Harlequin Lulu fabric, West Elm, August Place UK and Happy Friday (purchased from Achica). The sheepskin is from IKEA.
So there you have it, folks. Whaddya think? 🙂
It’s not a big room, but it certainly packs a punch! We are all still completely in love with how it turned out and I wouldn’t change a thing! Well, except maybe add another cushion to the reading area. 😉
