i need cheering up, have had a sad week and in the middle of it all, we are also preparing to move house. dd hasn't been sleeping very well so i've promised to decorate her room first. its 11'10'"x9'9" and we may buy one of those bunk beds things with a double on the bottom and a single on top as we're moving away from family so need to provide bed space for visitors.
any ideas???, i'm afraid she's a huge fan of the colour...................
do you know what, now i've looked at the laura ashley link, i quite like the floral idea, a bit of 'shabby chic', i'm afraid if i go too strongly down the fairy or princess route she may grow out of it quickly, florals are a bit more classic aren't they, thanks jn
would be really different too, never really done florals in our house before.
My goddaughter wanted the dreaded pink room age 7, and so her parents painted it a bright lipstick pink on one or two walls (I think it's a Fired Earth colour) and then did the curtains, bedspreads etc in 2 sizes of bright pink gingham fabric (john lewis, and dead cheap) and plain white. It looks great, and she's still happy with it even though she's now 12...
We let DD have her own way when we moved her last September (she was 3,5). Her walls are painted pink. We have Disney Princess stick ons, and 3 larger square Princess images. Pink and/or princess type accessories. Pink new over bed. She still loves it as do most of her girly friends/ I fihgure they are only little once, it is their bedroom and space - and hey, it is only paint and stickers. All easy to remove and repaint.
When we did DD1's bedroom she was 2, we painted pink stripes on the walls (very pale pink all over as a base, then using narrow roller with mid rose pink) the curtains and duvet were Laura Ashley fun fairies. Now she is 7 she wants it more grown up so we have changed the curtains, duvet to patchwork floral. I can see this working until she is about 10 or so.
