My daughter’s not even 2 years old, so I’m jumping the gun a bit here, but I just can’t help it.
This four poster bed is any girl’s dream and I love the subtle heart on the headboard. I’ve always been in love with the idea of a mosquito net, and this one from IKEA is a bargain. Instead of hanging it above the bed, I would have it hanging in a corner or on a beam if you have one and create a book corner with mounds of cushions, teddies and beanbags. I love the selection that they have at John Lewis, and they can always choose their favourite when a shopping trip out.
For the walls, I’ve found this lovely Carousel wall paper by Nikki Szabo but if that’s too much, you can always do one wall or a simple freize, and paint the rest of the room a simple off-white or dusty pink.
I’ve found this little hanging house box frame and immediately fell for it. The Little Dorm by ferm Living Kids is a fun take on a picture, yet you could fill it with little treasures.
For the floor, I love a bit of textile and this Jerada Cotton Dhurrie Rug from Oka is simple and will take them all the way up through their teens.
These little doughnut handles landed my desk a few months ago, and I’ve been desperate to talk about them. They look delicious and such fun. I would use them as knobs or hooks for a dressing gown on the back of the bedroom door.
Lastly, I’ve always been a sucker for beautiful French Armoires, and many anqtique shops in England stop them. Keep a look out at your local antiques market or check out Village Chic who often do great ones.
