Corners of my home – Girls’ Room

Shelves and mantlepiece. Postcards from Β Belle and Boo

So the youngest has moved out of her cot (at last) and into a Big Girls’ Room with her older sister. It is still a work in progress, I am on the look out for a tiny wooden dressing table and a mirror, for essential hair brushing and ponytail operations.

This is the story so far….

Girl’s gotta have shoes

As much as I would love one of those gorgeous designer kid’s room you see on Pinterest, this is real life, ain’t it. I have tried to make the space functional, fun and child-friendly. This involves boxes for the most important things in life – such as a massive shoe collection. I also have hidden toy boxes under the bunk beds for games that are played with occasionally or toys with squillions of parts.

‘A picture of you mummy’

I think the balance in a children’s bedroom is crucial. You want a room that represents your child and all that he/she enjoys (at that moment – who knows about next week). You want space for their toys but a room that is condusive to sleep. And of course, you want a room that contains elements of your taste, that fits into your house.

I kept everything fairly neutral in this room. The walls are white and most of the furniture is upcycled. If daughters had their own way it would have been all Disney Princess wallpaper and Minions carpet (it is available, don’t ask me why!!!) This is a room that they can grow into and hopefully it will last for the next few years at least.

Hope you enjoyed the mini tour. More photos to follow.

Love Hannah x

  2. Pinterest eat your heart out. This is an absolutely lovely room. It’s definitely the kind of style I’d like to recreate for my daughter’s room when she’s older. There’s no way I am having Disney princess wallpaper or Minion carpet! Ugh!

  4. It’s a beautiful room and well done on managing to ignore the lure of the Minions carpet (WHY?!) It definitely looks like something that can change with them as they get older – those cases are so pretty X #HomeEtc

  6. We have kept our daughters room fairly simple with the walls and carpet etc too. We figured she can will it with all her favourite things but then when she decides she’s into something new we won’t have to completely redecorate. I love those storage boxes by the way! They are lovely πŸ™‚ #bestandworst

  7. Hi Hannah, what a lovely room for your little girls! I love the neutrality with the little touches you’ve added here and there. The storage for your little girls shoes is lovely :-). Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Emily
