There are so many great ways to decorate spaces.. kids rooms included.. Here are some of favourites. Be it a mobile, picture, wallpaper, chair or cushion they creat a great unique difference.. for someone totally unique! I just love this red chair.. You may have one on your deck.. what a great idea for a children's room..( in fact I love it all red lantern, fireplace.. what a great space!)

Teenage Rooms..

I was recently asked for some help with teenage rooms girls in particular.. They can be hard to decorate as not much caters for our teenagers.. it's either Nurseries/ Kids rooms.. then us grown ups!  ..One thing I do know.. is that teenagers certainly know what they like.. & don't like..& they'll tell you.. which for me.. I think it's great.. always good to know where you stand.

Here were some of the images I presented as inspiation.. and I'm pleased to say Miss D!.. loved it.. 

Hope your having a great week.

I am a big fan of the playroom! I'm laughing as I'm blogging because BC ( Before Coops!).. my friends would all say how important a playroom is.. etc etc on the wish list in their next house .. me with no kids.. didn't get it.. after all isn't that what your bedroom was for?.. housing toys & playing in???Well it was when I was growing up!.. Anyway.. along came my Coop's.. Who like his things everywhere!.. and the lightbulb went on!.. Playrooms.. yes they are a designer's saviour in a family house!


House & Garden

Ohdee doh

I love the use of built in storage. This is my biggest love, in fact anywhere in a house.. wall untis, built in seats and little nooks.. Love it all. Here are some images to inspire.. or if your like me.. drool over and think..Hmm next house! x

I am hanging onto that last moment of Cooper's baby room before we do the back room up in Reds, Pale Blue and denium for his bigger room. The room is indeed a whole lot bigger so will serve as his room/playroom..

These were some of the images that were the inpiration behind his nursery.. I love them as much now as I did the first time I saw them.. Ohh I miss his nursery! sniff.. xx

I'm in love with Bunk Beds.

                                                     Pottery Barn

My girlfriend has her son & daughter sharing a room ( just the way her house has worked out!).. and it looks like bunks could be an option.. I have been on the lookout for some gorgeous ideas( very hard to find something for both bys & girls together!).. and it seems bunks are no longer daggy.. But very back in!.. Here were some of my inspiration pics, I would find it really hard to pick out of these.. I love them all.. Especially the multi bunk option!!!
