Decorating 9yo ds' room at the moment. We are doing pale grey walls, navy curtains, plain orange bedding with a dark grey throw and cushion. Painting the built in shelves to match the curtains. Orange shade for the overhead light and am thinking of a dark grey anglepoise type bedside light.
It already has a neutral carpet so we are sticking with that and keeping the existing furniture as well.
There's a classic Star Wars poster that I am going to frame for him and I have some dark blue picture frames for some other pictures.
I would choose the bedding first and then take your cue on colours from that.
I have promised my ds that we will redo his room when he goes to secondary school. He's only in year 5 but I am extremely indecisive and fairly skint so am starting to think about it now.
He would like carpet but I am going to go for some form of laminate + rugs due to my inability to clean anything else. I really have zero taste and like things that look shabby, but for him I would like it to look good. Where would you look for ideas? Do you have any top tips?
