With having 2 girls and living in a 2 bedroom house, the girls were inevitably going to share a room.
Amelia is 5 1/2 months and I think now is the perfect time to move Amelia in with Hollie. Hollie has known and understood that this would happen from the beginning. She has been looking forward to sharing with her sister.
I thought I would show you a few of the things I think would be good in the room.
Curtains – Dunhelm | Light shade – Dunhelm | Bunk-bed – Argos | Wardrobe – Ikea | Rug – Ikea | Mint paint – B and Q | Yellow paint – B and Q | Chest of drawers – Ikea | Lamp – Next.
In the room is three yellow walls and one bright pink and I want to keep the yellow walls and change the bright pink wall to mint green so that it brightens up the room and make it look bigger. There will be some pink in the accessories including the lights and the bedding so didn’t want the walls to be pink as well.
Hollie already has a bunk-bed that we bought at the end of last year and I made sure we got a white one so that it would blend in more with the room as it’s such a large tall piece of furniture. Amelia’s cot bed, which was Hollies, is antique pine so will break up the white furniture a bit and when she is bigger she will be able to go on the bottom of the bunk-bed.
At the moment, as the cot bed is going in the room, we can only fit in the wardrobe but eventually we will put in a chest of drawers too.
The room is an average size second bedroom for an English house but with the bunk-bed it seems quite small so don’t want to make it too cluttered and hopefully keep a little bit of space in between the bunk-bed and the cot bed.
I will show you the photos of the room when it is complete or as near as it can be!
Hope you are having a great week. See you soon.
