Redecorating a home or even a single room can present a series of unique challenges for parents. After all, you not only need to think about finding a design that meets your specific preferences, but you also need to consider ways that you can make every room as fun and safe for your children as possible! While wrapping everything in kid-safe materials might not be the perfect option, it is crucial to find a balance between your own personal style, and your children’s needs.
If you’re lucky enough to have your own conservatory, you should do what you can to make the most of it. The best way to think of a conservatory is as an extension of both the living room and the garden, bringing the outdoors in and vice versa. By working on this premise, you can create a stylish, comfy conservatory to keep the whole family happy.
We are planning to have a new conservatory built when we move into our new home. It’s one thing I have always wanted and can’t think of anywhere else I would love to cosy up with a book and a slice of cake!
December is here! Yes, we are well and truly into the Christmas season now. My favourite time of year. For a few weeks now I’ve been itching to dig out the decorations and get the tree up. But for now the tree will have to wait until the weekend.
It hasn’t stopped me doing a some Christmas decorating in my little workspace!
Debenhams kindly set me the challenge of sprucing up my workspace with Christmassy things. Yay!
We are now leaving the Summer behind us and heading into Autumn. With the evenings beginning to cool it’s time to think about changing the bedding for having a better nights sleep. I love this time of year. With fall beginning, leaves falling from the trees, colder nights. It’s time to dig out the Autumn and Winter duvet and prepare the bedroom.
I have put some tips together to help you get Fall ready:
I absolutely adore warm snuggly duvet with gorgeous duvet covers. You can get some really lovely duvet covers which can compliment your Autumn bedroom. A relaxing atmosphere in the bedroom can make for better sleep.
Here are some of my favourite Autumn/Winter duvet cover designs.
This stunning stag design gives your bedroom that toasty log cabin feel.
The Innsbruck Grey Duvet gives you the Winter and Christmassy feeling.
You can also add bedspreads and throws to your bed for extra warmth. I love rustic colours and country patterns for this time of year for the bedroom. It really freshens up the whole room, yet keeping it warm and cosy.
Adding a patterned duvet with geometric shapes adds another dimension to the theme of your bedroom.
Why not invest in some lovely new curtains for your Autumn bedroom to update the look. I think pretty designed curtains make a room that extra special.
These latte coloured curtains are the perfect shade of colour for Autumn. Curtains are great for keeping out the cooler air for this time of year, leaving you to have a better nights sleep.
If you are planning on updating your bedroom for the fall season, why not also take a look at the children’s bedrooms.
Kids need to have the perfect sleep-inducing environment. A room that is quiet, dark and cool can help to promote better sleeping habits.
To achieve this environment, thick and heavy curtains or blackout curtains are key. There are a fantastic range of children’s curtains for Autumn on Yorkshire Linen.
I have to say that my favourite are the moonlight navy blackout curtains. Perfect for that dreamy kids bedroom, yet blocking out the light.
There are some wonderful accessories out there that you can find for the bedroom. Lovely pictures, cushions and a thick warm cosy rug are great additions to your Autumn bedroom to add colour and style.
Are you ready for Autumn yet? Do you plan to give your bedroom or your children’s an Autumn makeover?
I would love to hear your ideas.
