I will love using these just need to move ... planning, planning I can imagine lots of happy memories in a cosy bedroom like this.

I had Bestey Clark and Holly Hobbie but only bedlinen.. what was your childhood bedroom like ?

What makes a bedroom special ??
( example my blog pal bobobun had a model made of her daughter with a sheep ).

Mine was a plain, undecorated box room. Comfy but plain in a spare bedroom kind of way. Despite this I loved retreating to my bedroom to play and read and dream.

These do look nice but a bit OTT! Not sure the themed wallpaper is necessary and will date when DC grows out of Paddington, Peter Rabbit etc. I prefer a plain pale colour and then accent.

I was thinking something like lining a billy bookcase and making toybag from the material or curtains tie backs its great for inspiration. Most childrens room are dire and they are only young once.

I had a cocktail room at 16 with full cocktail cabinet in my room luckily the cabinet was hidden in an old cupboard, but it was a great room.

Remember those athena roller skating types pictures ?

I always remember my brother having popeye wallpapersmile
The only bedroom I can remember was pink and grey with striped bedding al cupboards above the bed that my father built. As I got older then it was Athena posters and pop stars ripped out of smash hits and some lyrics too.
My dad used to go mad at the blue tac marks

My brothers rooms was a replica of a ships cabin with pot holes and cabin bed. My dad made it all by hand and the woodwork it was brilliant. He had another cabin bed for freinds and everyoe loved it.

I shared my first childhood bedroom with my sister. When we moved house, she was 6, and I vividly remember her sobbing her heart out as we were leaving the house because she hadn't realised the smurf wallpaper that adorned our room couldn't be packed and taken with us!

I had cream wallpaper with a rosebud pattern, and grey carpet. Before I got my own room I slept in the top bunk in a room with sky blue painted walls and lino on the floor.

I always wished we had central heating. The aspect of the rooms that I remember most was the chill.
