Bringing Spring into the Kids Bedrooms

Well, I'm sitting here with the rain pouring down outside and the sky looking very grey, but surprisingly I'm thinking about Spring.

Last night we had a disturbed night with all three of my children coming into our room at some point or another. We woke up with Star in the spare bed we have in our room, Boo was on one side of our bed and The Little Man on the other, so me and Dad were squashed in between.

So, I'm thinking that it's time to clear out winter from their rooms, make them light and ready for spring and give them a makeover, and maybe, just maybe, they will stay in their own rooms.

To start with, as the mornings and evenings get lighter it's time for blackout blinds. Kids will wake up with the sun, so if we want a lie in, blocking it out is a necessity.

These ones would look gorgeous in the girls room:

The Little Man would love this one, both blinds prove that blackout blinds don't need to be dark and dreary.

That's the rooms darkened but we now near a real good clean up and make lots of space. The toys need to be sorted and put away, and the ones no longer needed can find new homes after we donate them to the local charity shop. The girls are sorted for their storage, but The Little Man's room has been neglected.

I love this colourful tiered toy basket, I'm sure we'd get loads packed away in here.

(extra note: I'm sorry to all OCD sufferers for this photo, I so would put the bottom yellow basket in the middle!)

So, rooms tidied, blinds sorted, next we need to keep them snug and happy in their own beds. They have new beds but they need a little sprucing up with some nice new bed linen.
For the girls room I could stay with the woodland theme from the blinds with this lovely woodland bed set. Yorkshire Linen have some lovely spring themed duvet covers and they start from as little as £9.99. What a great way of freshening up your room for spring.

This gorgeous stripy duvet at Yorkshire Linen Website  will go great with the bright colours I've chosen for the Little Man. By the way, his walls are magnolia, so it's good to add colours in other ways.

So what do you think our chances are? Will they finally stay in their own rooms? Only time will tell but I'm pretty sure the make over will help.

When it works (See, I'm always optimistic) I can go for a makeover of my own room. I  simply adore these Kylie Minogue inspired duvets, I just 'Can't Get You Out of My Head'

  1. Love the blinds and covers. We have that toy unit. The cardboard coloured boxes for it were very flimsy and I got fed up with them all over the place all the time. By the time the boy's were old enough to not break them, they were too old to use them. You have just reminded me it's still in the loft lol (ann w)
