WEEKLY INSPIRATIONS : BOYS’ BEDROOMS

As I mentioned recently, I moved every bed in my house before Christmas. I just woke up one morning and I had to do it.

The boys had been sharing a room since they were born but for different reasons (that will soon be revealed to you), the boys had to be separated and they now have their very own bedroom.

I have always tried to decorate their bedroom and playroom with different colors. I never liked the blue with soccer balls kind of decorations for the boy’s room. It is not them. It is not us.

As now I get to decorate 2 bedrooms, I have to take into consideration their ages, their tastes and their needs for their individual rooms, always within budget which means recycle, up-cycle, inherit, beg…. the usual!

For BIG MONKEY’S ROOM (age 8) I will need a nice desk to keep up with his drawing

And some shelving will also be neccesary for books and general stuff that they seem to get…

These walls are just gorgeous. Fun but sensible… right?

The bed is priority. It needs to be comfortable and inviting, not only to sleep but also to grab a book and read for a while.

Their little feet need to be warm, but stylish also… of course!

As for CHAOTIC MONKEY’S ROOM (age 6) I will also need some storage and this one looks not only affordable but fun!

There is so much I would take from here. From the cushions, to the wall, to the bed… so much…

Food for thought.
I will be working hard at making those spaces as amazing, relaxing and inspiring as I can.
What about you?
Are you inspired yet?

Have an amazing weekend.

PLAIN RUG + FELT BALLS = HAPPY RUG

PLAIN RUG + FELT BALLS = HAPPY RUG

OrganisingChaosBlog - Making a rug special with felt balls
When it comes to interior design, I have always been a fan of the Scandinavian style. I love the whites, the greys, the soft colors, the textures… Scandinavian interior design is renowned for its simplicity, utility and beauty, and that is exactly what I want in my home – simple clean lines that allow a space to work for a busy family with young kids but it is still beautiful.
One of the main features of the Scandinavian style is the light colors. I guess it is to maximize any bit of light that they get in the winter months and, having lived in Ireland for 15 years and experiencing the dark (and wet, and cold) winters, I need plenty of light colors around the house to help me make it to Spring.

Last year I bought a plain inexpensive white rug for the sitting room. It was a bit of a characterless rug but I bought it with the idea of maybe painting some design in it or dying it. A year passed by and the white rug was still under the sitting room table. Still white. Still plain.

As much as I love white, I also like colors. A touch of color always lifts a space, adds a touch of fun and it makes any space more summery even in the depths of winter. If that touch of color comes in the shape of colorful gorgeous felt balls, well, that just divine!!! So what do you do when you have a white rug and a load of colourful felt balls? The only thing you can do!

I love the subtle color that the balls bring to the room and I love how the rug makes the wood on the floor and on the table that bit brighter.
