Milo's room is first up, I'm moving him completely, due to some damp issues in his current room. On emptying, what was the spare room, of all it's contents, I thought 'well as it's empty it would be foolish not to paint it', as you do.
Milo decided after much deliberation, that he wanted his room to look like 'Bart Simpsons, from the Lego house'. So after some consultation with the paint chart we choose 'Natural Twine' from Wilkinson's for the walls. I'm sure it's not normal for a 5 year old to choose to have a 'beige' bedroom, but I figure it's a good base to add some colourful furniture to.
Of course I since took to pinterest to search out some gorgeous colourful bedrooms and just the right
accessories for the job.

The key points I'm thinking of working with, from Bart's room are the green flooring, red lamp, purple bedding and colourful furniture. Fortunately Milo has a lot of white furniture already, so painting it up in bright colours shouldn't be a problem. To replicate Bart's posters I thought I'd get Milo to do some nice pictures for me (maybe even a Krusty the clown drawing!) and put them up in some simple frames. I also think the addition of a pin board to keep all his school certificates on would be a really lovely idea.
It's all going very slowly at the moment, but I hope to share the finished article with you soon.
