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 ..


I love this paper so much I just had to have it and everything else flowed from there ..but it is a strong print and that is why I have only used it on one wall.  

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.

I’ve also had a quick browse on the H&M home website, if you haven’t discovered H&M home then you really need to, they have some gorgeous bedding for kids:


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..

Would you like to see some more of my home? Do you enjoy getting some inspiration on interiors? As ever, I would love to hear from you, please feel free to comment below ..

Thanks!

  1. Well done on making your first curtains, they look fab. I bought myself a sewing machine last year after many years of not sewing . I had to replace my old one but I haven’t made anything as yet, maybe I need to start again. I used to make all sorts of items including, clothes and soft furnishings. How did you enjoy the course?
    I’m sure your little man will love his new bedroom.

    1. Hello Ruth! I’m so glad you are enjoying the blog, Alex does love his bedroom but it doesn’t normally look so tidy. I’m working on a Roman blind for Alice’s room now, I love sewing, I get absorbed and I find that incredibly relaxing, just listening to classic fm ..
      The sewing bee classes in Worthing are the ones I went too, it’s a friendly group and I learnt a lot x

  2. This is beautiful, absolutely beautiful. You did an amazing job with the curtains, I was about to ask where they were from before I scrolled down and read, you’d seriously have never known, they look fantastic! LOVE, monochrome.
