We have just started renovating the upstairs of our house and we have spent the majority of our time focusing on colour palettes and vision boards, but now it is time to get focused on the nitty gritty details. After all, unless we get the details right our renovation project will look half finished. I have never shopped for skirting boards, architraves, doors, windows or radiators before, but now I am fully immersed in the details.
We moved into our new house 6 months ago and have grand plans for it. Our first priority is J’s bedroom. The window needs replacing, the radiator needs to be modernised, the wallpaper needs to be stripped and the laminate flooring removed. We will be left with a blank canvas and we want to get it right. We have looked at the best boy’s beds on the market and we have been going back and forth trying to choose a theme for a boy’s bedroom that we are all happy with and one which will last without needing to be redecorated in a couple of years time.
When we moved to our new house 6 months ago one of our key criteria was a bigger room for J. His previous bedroom wasn’t a box room but we expect that once he gets older he will want to spend more time in it and we decided we wanted him to have a bit more space to grow into. We found what we were looking for and more as J has a playroom too, so we have even more options for his play space that we had planned. Our whole house needs to be renovated and J’s bedroom is our first priority. I have been trawling the Internet to try and find design inspiration for layout, colour schemes, beds, theme ideas and furniture and am slowly pulling ideas together.

This month is going to be hard to beat this year as it has been absolutely fabulous! We came out of a very long wet and cold winter to start May on a major high with a trip to Florida. We spent the majority of our holiday at the Disney Parks, but we did venture out to see some alligators in the wild, to visit the white sands of Siesta Key and to Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic Coast to try to see a space launch.
