I have a belief that children’s rooms should be FUN! While they need to be functional, I love to create rooms that foster learning and growth too. I am currently working on redesigning my son’s room for his second birthday. I love his room so much and I will be sad to see it go, and at the same time I am so excited about the plans I have for the room.
I guess it’s like parenting. As your child grows a part of you may mourn the baby stage, the late night feeds when everything is still in the house and it’s just you and your child awake, those first steps, first tastes of food but then the joy of all the new milestones you have to look forward too. It’s bittersweet!
I want Xavier’s room to be a fun place to hang out. We don’t have a separate play room in our home (as many families don’t) and we have some great moments singing, reading, dancing and playing silly games like making a washing basket into a boat, and chasing each other around in the room. So his new space will be full of colour, I have ordered custom made teepee from Banana J Creations so we can read and play in the room too. I have chosen to spend a limited amount on the room – there is a possibility we may be temporarily relocating next year – so it seems a waste to be too extravagant with anything that we can’t take with us.
I LOVE a challenge and I love to save money where I can so I will share ALL of my sources and any DIY projects with you when the room is finished. In the meantime I put together a few of my favourite ideas to add a little fun into your child’s haven!
