So we have finally set up an appointment for an architect to come round to draw up some plans for our long-awaited extension. As well as a bigger kitchen and open plan living area, the plan is to make fourth bedroom bigger and create an en-suite (and hopefully a walk-in wardrobe, fingers crossed!) for our bedroom. My daughter’s current bedroom is the very definition of a box room – just about manageable while she’s in a toddler bed but put a single bed in its place and there wouldn’t be much room for anything else.
Completely ignoring the fact that the completed extension is many months down the line, as plans need to be drawn up, planning permission sought, and money saved (not to mention the actual building work!) I have jumped straight to the fun part of surfing the internet for inspiration on how to decorate and furnish our (so far) fictional dream home. My husband just shakes his head when I’m looking at different wallpapers for our daughter’s room. He obviously doesn’t understand that the planning stage is the best bit!
For Clemmie’s room I love the flowery wallpaper by Eijffinger (available from Samuel Charles Interiors), probably as a feature on one wall with the others painted in either white or lavender to match the wallpaper. She already has the Classic Junior Wardrobe from The White Company which will hopefully last her quite a few years. The chandelier lampshade and the cute wooden Love letters, which would look great propped up on a shelf, are also from The White Company while the bedspread, cushion and storage basket are all from H&M Home. I have already ordered the adorable rabbit night light from online shop The Handpicked Collection, a steal at only £4.21.
But for the moment, all she needs is another set of bedlinen and I’m choosing between the pink clouds duvet set by Färg & Form Sweden and the Littleheart one with pink stars (both from Babyshop.com) as well as the classic gingham and the Little Fairies bedlinen from The White Company. Decisions, decisions….
