Recently I gave my little mans room a bit of a makeover.
I’m not a fan of colour on walls, I prefer adding personality in accessories because I know I will tire of it quickly and want a change. I also prefer to have a neutral shade throughout, it flows better, doesn’t look disjointed and opens up your space.
Little man’s room is now a monochrome scheme with a pop of yellow ..
The bedside table and light is from IKEA, as is the ‘sheepskin’ and the bedding. I have also found some lovely monochrome bedding on H&M home. The prints are from etsy, (a friend of mine noticed the chevron print one on etsy – thank you Bianca! x) frames are ‘Ribba‘ from Ikea. Rug and cushions are from H&M.
And for the little extras they are pretty good too. These storage boxes are only £1.99!
I made some curtains myself, don’t look at them too carefully! It was a first attempt at sewing, I found it really satisfying doing something myself, I went to some local sewing classes for guidance with them and watched some YouTube videos. It’s actually not that hard, you measure your curtain rail, add a half or double width and measure your desired drop. Cut the lining if you are using it smaller then the curtain, sew inside down the length then hem and sew a header tape into the top. The fabric is a grey slub linen with a yellow band sewn on the bottom to tie in with the rest of the scheme.
My little man is pleased with the end result, a kind of Jurassic dinosaur landscape..
