Out with the old sob...sob...

My son has reached an age where he's looking for a change.  He's really keen on changing his room around (and does this regularly) and wanting to add his stamp to his own space. As he's a triplet I feel that this is super important to embrace (within reason!!) as he does have to share everything else!!

My son has reached an age where he's looking for a change.  He's really keen on changing his room around (and does this regularly) and wanting to add his stamp to his own space. As he's a triplet I feel that this is super important to embrace (within reason!!) as he does have to share everything else!!

However finding the right decor that's going to take him all the way through childhood and beyond is important. I felt this from very early on though, not wanting to spend money on furniture and soft furnishings that were not going to last so thankfully now he's calling for an update this doesn't involve DIY sos! Simply a lick of paint here and a dash of wallpaper there! A desk is top of his wish list so as long as that's incorporated I shouldn't go far wrong!

In terms of investment pieces he has his full size wardrobe (no nursery furniture here!) a cubby with boxes from the trusted ikea and his bed! Therefore all I shall be changing are his Cath Kidston sheets! Whilst I still adore the cowboy range and sweet bunting I can't deny it will be lovely to embrace his slightly older self with a few new bits.  Here is what I have my eye on......

Shop the look....

  1. Chevron rug - Great Little Trading
  2. Lisabo desk - Ikea
  3. Nyponros bedding - Ikea
  4. 'Ere Be Dragons wallpaper - Paperboy Wallpaper
  5. Skateboard - similar at Skatehut
  6. Anglepoise lamp - Heals
  7. Chalk vinyl paper - BHMA

I adore this paper from Paperboy, it adds such a fun element, as do the skateboard shelves.  Skateboards mounted on top of simple brackets from any hardware store. Use them as shelves or if you have an older child stack them for a novel way of displaying your collection of boards! The vinyl chalkboard paper is easily applied and allows little ones to get creative in their space! This look could also be achieved with blackboard paint. Just apply a number of thin coats to achieve the desired coverage. The desk, Anglepoise lamp and bedding are timeless elements that will be suitable for some time to come, giving the overall design longevity.

Here are a few other cool rooms that might inspire you.  The last image I couldn't resist if you've got triples like me!

Let me know what you think!
