I decided to paint the room a simple white (it had previously been pink). I'm a big fan of bold, statement accessories - but I still like rooms to look clean and bright - plus white is really easy to touch up when you have kids that might doodle or leave sticky handprints on the walls.
When it comes to bedding, I love clashing floral and stripy prints, and lots of quirky cushions. I also love striking wall art so have bought Evie some new prints and frames and some wall stickers too.
A regular bed would have taken up about 75% of the floorspace, which would not have been ideal, however her room also has sloping roof so a high bed wouldn't have fit at all. To compromise I bought a mid sleeper, and have put all of her toys underneath it. Her old chest of drawers fits next to the bed and also doubles up as a bedside table. I still have shelves and curtains to buy and put up, but things are coming together very nicely already.
I'm going to do a full room tour once I've finished, but thought I would share a few of the things I've ordered from Mamas & Papas with you. Don't be fooled - you might think they only sell things for babies but there is plenty on there that I'd have in MY room and I'm 36 ;)
1. Metallic Stars Wall Stickers, £9 (sale) - I'm going to stick these around the shelves once they're up // 2. Yellow Cloud Cushion, £24 - how ADORABLE is this? It's large too, 54x29cm // 3. Sweet Dreams Lampshade, £22 - I liked the neutral colour of this and the dreamy clouds too // 4. Timbuktales Knitted Blanket, £29 - small but perfectly formed, this is to act as a runner at the foot of Evie's bed, over her Liberty duvet covers // 5. Mustard Martos Rug, £39 - this is to go under the bed as a cosy spot to play on
DISCLOSURE: Mamas & Papas very kindly gave a me a voucher to use online, which I topped up with my own hard earned pennies to buy the above. I'm very happy with my purchases and all views are entirely honest and my own.
