|How cute is this bed (image)|
So with our next little bundle of joy on it way around February time we have been thinking a lot about Mr A's room, he is in desperate need of a new bed as he is still in a toddler bed and it's really time to move to a "big boy" one. We also feel it's time to redecorate his room in a way that reflects his style and provides a fun, interactive and safe environment that he feels comfortable in. We want to have him as involved as possible in the decision making (well within reason) as it's our present to him before the new little one is on the scene. So we asked Mr A what his dream bed would be
1. Somewhere higher up with storage underneath for all his books - like a mid bunk
2. A slide so he could slide out of bed (this probably wouldn't happen)
3. Big enough for his soft toys to join him at bedtime
4. Dinosaur/printed bedding
5. Have a canopy so he can make dens
6. A cup holder for his water at night (I loved he thought of this)

I mean this is his wish list and what we end up with will of course be somewhat different but hopefully we can tick off a few things for him. The first port of call though however is painting his room, we have decided to go with a similar shade we used in his first bedroom which was a beautiful Laura Ashley light blue and would match his homemade gingham curtains perfectly.

We really want to add some prints on the wall and some simple but fun wall art, as well as splashes of colour. Also we are working on a fun storage box for him to keep all his prized processions. We are hoping to create a space that he wants to stay in and will make the transition from being the only child to older sibling.
