I used the exact same colour on the walls as we had in Pips bedroom at our flat. The paint was from Homebase and part of their Sanctuary range, named ‘Dusk’. However they’ve now discontinued the whole range altogether but luckily we had handy decorators who managed to match it to an old tin of it that we still had! I’ve always found it hard to find the perfect grey that isn’t too blue, green or black and this was it. It’s such a shame it’s been discontinued!
As Pip went from a carpeted bedroom to a wooden floor, I bought this H&M grey striped rug to break up the floor space.
Her bedroom is very long and thin so I’ve kept everything along one wall to make the room feel bigger and it certainly works. From the room we saw when we looked around the house to the room it is now is a complete transformation! I never imagined she would have so much space in that tiny room but it’s now my favourite room in the house.
On the opposite wall, I have put up lots of pictures and created a gallery wall. Before we moved I kept buying more and more prints as I just fell in love with them. I thought I would struggle to find the space for them all but this long wall has created the perfect place for me to hang them and with some space to expand it further too!
I even managed to squeeze a little picture and this bespoke weave from Holly & Teddy Weave above Pips cot.
I was also worried that her Eames style rocking chair wouldn’t fit in the new room as we still use this every night to read Pippa her bedtime story and give her her milk before bed. However there is a perfect little space for it, in the exact spot it used to sit!
But by far my favourite thing about Pips room is the gold spotted wall! They are just wall stickers which I bought from Vintage Rose Prints but they just complete the room (and match the beautiful gold spot bed sheets!)
