5 custom made plywood bed ideas to steal

Custom made beds aren’t for everyone. But if you’re a handy DIY’er or happen to know a good carpenter, they can be a great option for a kids room.  Custom made beds allow you to make the most of the space you have, they allow you to build in storage, they are ideal in shared rooms and they can be very space saving in small or awkwardly shaped rooms.  The benefits are endless and while they require more effort than a shop bought bed, they are totally worth it in the end. If you’re in a home that you...

Grey & Green: A stylish colour combo for boys or girls

There are so many possible colour combinations to choose from for a kids room, apart from the more common pinks, blues and whites.  One of our current favourites is grey and green.  When we went looking for inspiration to share with you, we were surprised as how under used this colour combo is. It’s such a beautiful choice so hopefully, these rooms will inspire more people to go for it. Grey and green works for either sex or for a shared room.  But more than that, there is something very calming about these two colours together.  And there is...

The Coolest Shared Rooms for Boys

Recently we featured some gorgeous shared rooms for sisters.  Today it’s the turn of brothers. As special as a sisterly bond is, the bond shared by two brothers is just as strong.  And what can be more fun than growing up together and getting up to all kinds of naughty adventures in a shared room? Even if you have enough bedrooms, we think sharing a room between brothers is so much more fun. After all, having a partner in crime to get up to all kinds of antics at any time of the day and night is what the...

The Prettiest Shared Rooms for Girls

Sisters. They are just the best. They laugh with you, they cry with you, they argue with you and fight with you, but no matter what, that sisterly bond is unbreakable.  So what could be more special than to grow up sharing a room with your sister? Sometimes shared rooms happen because of space but many times sisters choose to share a room because it’s so fun. It’s always nice to have someone to giggle with at night, to cuddle if you need comfort or to just know that you’re not alone. To celebrate the bond between sisters,  we...

And one thing is for sure about these types of rooms – they are all truly unique. Today we’re sharing a stunning eclectic kids rooms we’ve come...

For the Love of (Storage) Baskets

We are totally addicted to storage baskets in our homes. We love them for many reasons but especially for a family living because they make tidying up so easy. Anybody who has kids will know that children and mess go together. But with baskets dotted around the home, you can just pile everything in and tidy up in under a minute.  Better yet, the kids can easily do it themselves. When it comes to storage baskets, our philosophy is that you can never have too many. We’ve got them in our living room, bathroom, master bedroom, entrance and of...

5 Beautiful Blush Bedrooms

Recently we’ve been spotting more and more blush interiors everywhere. We’ve spotted blush walls in bathrooms, living rooms and even kitchens.  While we are loving this beautiful blush trend for every room in the house, we’re especially keen on it for a kids room. Blush has a softness, a warmth and calmness all in one which is so perfect for a kids room. Blush mixes well with lots of colours, but we love it best with monochromes, greys and greens. Alternatively, we are also very partial to a wall to wall blush bedroom. Here are some more blush rooms that...

5 Small Kid’s Rooms Done Right

We may dream of living in mansions with rooms the size of football fields. But for most of us, that’s not the reality. We often end up in a home with at least one especially small room that usually gets given to one of the kids, often the youngest. At least that was always the way it was in our home.  Small kids rooms are a reality for lots of us and they can be challenging to decorate especially since kids have so much stuff. The good news is those small bedrooms don’t have to mean compromise. It just...
