A little/medium/big boy's room

Hi everyone!

Before I get started, a big thank you to Jode, who has also nominated me for a Liebster Award.  There are lots of adventures happening over on her blog, so make sure you check it out!

I'm not sure if I've shared the make-up of our little family, but we have two girls and one boy.  He's the middle child and obviously the only boy, and for various other reasons, he has a very special place in his Mumma's heart.  My mission in the new house is to create a room for him that sheds his little boy image and really positions him as the big guy on campus.  Haha, he's 5!

As a bit of background, here is his room in the old house...

Anyhoo, we need to buy him some new furniture, so I really want it to be furniture that will look classic, yet boyish all at once, and last him for a really long time (or, at least, until I change my mind!).  And, as per my MO of mixing the more expensive with the less expensive, this is the look I've come up with for the new house...

The top paint colour is the White Duck that will be throughout the house, and I'm after a dark grey feature wall, but the jury is still out on the exact colour.  The robot will be 135cm high - awesome - and red, so that it will well and truly 'pop' against the dark grey.

So, what do you think?  Any grey suggestions will be gratefully welcomed.

I hope the start to your week has been a good one!

  2. Thanks for the Thanks Madonna! You are most welcome and deserving. I love popping over to your blog and thanks for popping over to see what we are up too!

    Love your ideas for your little mans bedroom, I think you have it all happening, I may nick some of your ideas! lol I have the boys bedrooms to do times by three, so all ideas welcome!

    I'll pull out my fan deck and shoot you some grey feature colours, once I get up to Queensland. We leave tomorrow!!! Soooo, not organised, well almost. This last bit of packing is doing my head in!

    Have a great day.
