It was an honour last weekend to have my son’s bedroom featured on the front cover of the Sunday Times newspaper – Home section.
It was written by Katrina Burroughs, on Unisex style in children’s bedroom.
To quote Katrina “it was about the decor wars that are gently waged between adults and their offspring – and between adults and the purveyors of pink and blue designs – and how the bill payers can triumph, creating child friendly yet stylish interiors that satisfy all parties.”
I styled two gender neutral rooms for the feature. The above photo was used. The other room was styled in a monochrome palette, revealed below.
Not sure if you remembered my son’s recent bedroom Spring refresh above? It was very blue.
I’ve fine tuned it to yellow and mint for the unisex feature.
Katrina’s comment in the Sunday Times made me smile. Here it is “Her taste is understated, chic, design-savvy – good luck getting her to admit a novelty duvet into her house.”
Yes, the whole issue around novelty duvets! I’ve been lucky so far with the latter, my children have not really requested them and we have worked collaboratively to achieve the look in their rooms.
Here’s a list of where everything is from:
The duvet cover is from Hay; the linen mint ombre throw is from Designer’s Guild; the bed is from Little White company; the prints are by Fine Little Day and Corby Tindersticks; the chevron green rug is from Urban Outfitters; the side table is Componibili by Kartell; the mint leaf lamp is by Muuto.
The chair is vintage, by Casalino and the cushion is by Lucky Boy Sunday.
Here is the monochrome room
The duvet cover is Arne Jacobsen by Design Letters from Skandivis; the dog pillow is by H&M ; The Cross throw is by Pia Wallen; the geometric storage bag is by Ferm Living and the mint stool is part of the new Brakig range from Ikea.
The monochrome prints are from Future and Found.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my styling! Have a wonderful weekend. x
