Children's Rooms

How, looks like we are back up and running. Wouldn't have surprised me if blogger had asked everyone to pay up to have their site back online :-)

Would you like to look at some kid's rooms with me? 
I have to admit that our boy's room has been a little neglected in terms of design. It's very functional but I would change a million things if we were staying in this apartment a little longer. My boys are sharing a bedroom and that works beautifully. 

How cool is the first room? I know my boys would love a castle themed room and a little secret hiding place behind the door. I always think the nautical theme works well for boys rooms, but done in a subtle way like in the third picture. 

I would love to one day have a girl and know I would probably end up making it quite a girly space without turning it into barbie's room. I like the subtle hints of pink in the last photo and adore the overall look of the first photo. 

Having children share a room can throw up all sorts of challenges, especially when space is limited. So far I have my older boy in a single bed and the younger one still in his cot but I do like the idea of bunks, as they are a huge space saver. 

These photos have inspired me to update the boys room a little by using soft furnishings rather than investing in new pieces. I'll keep you updated.

I like the idea of a girls room ! Two little people I was talking to tonight were debating the arrival of a new brother or sister. When the idea of a baby super-hero figure was put forward by the boy, the little girl said " I think it will we just be normal, Like us!"

beautiful photos nina, just one question: have any of the children who live in those rooms been allowed to select anything themselves for the room? I can't see the lego, ghastly my-little-ponies, miscellaneous plastic knick-knacks or crayon drawings anywhere, and those things sure as hell make a mess of my attempts at prettyfying my kids rooms. we're keeping it real down here, which is my way of saying: I have no control ;)
