As with any decorating project, it pays to take some time on the overall look you want to achieve...outer space is a popular subject and ranges from retro cartoons like the Jetsons through to the ultra-stylish Avatar.
Given my choice, I'd pick a Star Trek theme...!
With a dramatic colour scheme of deep blues and silvers...
Just a tip, movie posters offer both colour inspiration and a decorative feature in the finished room...
A successful interior starts with a little inspiration... Debi Treloar, through her beautiful photography, never fails to get me motivated...here's a few of her images that give me a 'rosy glow' on a rainy Summer's day.
Any parent, whatever the age of their kids, is no doubt aware of the endless collections of small toys that seem to accumulate almost without warning. I'm talking about things like marbles, lego, dolls accessories, small cars...the list goes on..!
So how to store these items effectively without making it difficult for the kids...?
Plastic containers are probably one of the most ecconomical and efficient storage solutions for little bits and pieces...you can label them easily...stack them to save space...and they are available in almost every size you can think of!
These numbered baskets add such a calming effect to what would make a great crafting/play room...I can just imagine a rabble of kids around that table creating their masterpieces...and then everything back in the baskets minutes after they've finished...easy peasy!
Congratulations to David and Victoria Beckham on the birth of their daughter Harper Seven.
Word has it that no expense has been spared on a nursery fit for a princess...although the average figure is about £50,000...!
Apparently the room is decorated in a 'shabby-chic' style with a French feel...and is pink!
So I've been thinking how I'd fulfil such a brief...
My inspiration comes from faded flowers, vintage jewellery and a classic ballet dress.
I'm a big fan of chalkboard paint...it gives the flexibility to design and create chalkboard wall art to suit your own needs, and takes little time or effort!
And what child wouldn't love a reusable wall to doodle over...?
