Hugh’s nursery was the start of my childrens’ interior design business and whilst it was beautiful back then (and I’m sure people still love the style), I wanted a change and I didn’t feel it suited 2 rambunctious little boys! I did consider changing Charles nursery into their room (as it’s more a style that would transition well), but Hugh’s room was slightly larger and we needed the tiny bit of extra space for the 2 beds.
These wooden names were red in their old rooms and just spay painted to use them again.
Seriously love these baskets from Down to the Woods….wonderful for shoving all the soft toys in
I love this photo of the boys (taken at our farm) and I wanted to include it on their shelf.
Charles is our cool cat……seriously, he’s going to be our child that will be slipping out the window to go to a night club….our wild child. I had this print done in custom colours to suit. The little tractor on the shelf was Matt’s as a child. We are fixing up the old house out at the farm and came across this just recently (underneath some floor boards) so it went on the shelf as well.
This DIY didn’t really go to plan….really, it’s a bit of an ugly spray finish, but it does the job.
Seriously, how cool are the decals? You might notice that there is a bit of a bow tie/gentleman theme running through a few bits and pieces and that’s why I picked the bow tie pattern to do the decals. I did the decals by myself and it really didn’t take too long to install. However, it was only upon planning the layout of the decals that I realised that the window isn’t centred! Check it out! Damn….should have picked that up on the plans when we built!
My very clever Mum knitted the boys their cushions!
I love the ‘gentleman rules’ print and it was always going to be included!
This was another DIY. I sing this song to the boys quite a bit and decided to create a fun banner for the robe.
And for those of you wondering ‘where’s all the toy’s?’….well I don’t keep any in their room (and never have).
So what do you think? I will do a post in the coming week with lots of links to various pieces but any questions?
