A Cool Gift Idea

A Cool Gift Idea

Guest blog from Ingeborg

What do you give a seven-year old girl who has everything? Julie didn’t need asking about her birthday present twice - a new room!

We moved here three years ago, just before her fourth birthday. I’d created a pretty girl’s room featuring pink panelling, a polka dot play house, a cute little sitting area and a junior bed.

She’s now almost seven and ready for a change.

Her instructions were clear. Her new room had to be cool, incorporate cheetahs and contain absolutely no pink.

Which certainly gave me plenty to work with! I then came across the Safari Dusk wallpaper from Roomblush, which was the perfect match to her exacting requirements.

I like to take a different approach to tackling this type of project. So, rather than simply wallpapering the entire wall, I decided to create a life size-painting to serve as a centrepiece. I did this by cutting out an eye-catching section of the wallpaper and fashioning a picture frame from skirting boards from the DIY store to complete the effect.

I lastly furnished Julie’s refreshed room with a black four-poster bed (black is indisputably cool), rattan accessories and a vintage desk.

Julie is over the moon with her new room, which more than lives up to her expectations.

Suffice to say; it was an extremely well-received gift!

 I was constantly coming across beautiful bedrooms on Instagram and, I have to admit, was a tad jealous. So, I decided to completely transform our room and give Emma Lieve her very own ‘room’ within a room.
