With the arrival of Anastasia, some changes around the home have had to be made… The spare room is just too essential with a new baby in the house so we have decided to put Scarlett and Savannah into one room. As it was originally Scarlett’s room, we wanted to totally transform it so that they were excited about the new room share. Well, today the bunk beds arrived and whilst the girls were at pre-school I had them assembled and spent the afternoon adding all new accessories to give the girls a brilliant surprise when they got home! I am so pleased with the end result, I thought I would share some pics with you on here…
Trying to find suitable bunk beds for a 2 and 4 year old is harder than you may think! We finally settled on this Parisot set because it has a stair case instead of a ladder making those midnight trips to the loo far safer! It also has additional storage and shelves that the girls are going to love filling up. I managed to get this in the sale from The Kids Window and made the decision to let professionals put it together rather than Paul. It was a matter of safety… We got a middle of the range mattress from Mamas and Papas and can totally recommend it for quality and comfort.
The Ikea shelving unit was already in the room but I replaced the storage boxes with plain pink to give it a new look.
These beautiful children’s illustrations are The Royal Collection from Daisy and Bump. You may have spotted these already on my Instagram, these classic and elegant prints will certainly be treasured for years to come.
These wicker lined baskets come as a set of 3 from JoJo Maman Bebé and are a great solution for storing the girls ridiculous amount of cuddly toys!
The fabric letters are also from JoJo’s and make a great feature now that wall space is limited!
The bedding is called Horsing Around Peony and is part of the Kids collection at Designers Guild. It’s luxury to the touch (which isn’t easy to find for kids bedding – most of it gives you an electric shock!) and is colourful enough to get the girls seal of approval! I really love this cushion…
Scarlett’s bunnies are by Jelly Kitten and the one in the middle has been personalised with her name at My 1st Years.
The bold wool rug in lime greens and fuchsia pinks really brings the room together and is great quality at a very reasonable price! I picked this up from Room to Grow.
This lamp shade was made by a close friend and designer Edwina Sercombe.
Some bits taken from Savannah’s room – her personalised bag and my favourite photo from her first shoot with Mrs Shutterspeed.
And here are the girls after pre-school LOVING their new bunk beds! Let’s see how the first night goes… My money is on them staying up all night swapping beds.
