*New Trend* An Interior Designer for your toddler

*New Trend* An Interior Designer for your toddler

By The Mummy Concierge

Back in April our toddler Rupert turned two - and with a new baby on the way, we decided it was the perfect time to move him out of his nursery and into a ‘big boys room.’ But where do you start when it comes to creating the perfect Toddler Bedroom?

With a bit of research I discovered there is a new trend amongst parents when it comes to making their children bedrooms look gorgeous: An interior Designer. But not just any interior designer - one who specifically works designing rooms for toddlers and babies. Meet the fabulous Kids Rule Interiors

So how does it work?

  1. I had an initial Skye call with Dominique from Kids Rule who asked me lots of question about the things Rupert loves, his new bedroom (the size, space etc) and also the things that were important to me as a parent. For example, I wanted somewhere that Rupert and I could snuggle up in for bedtime stories!

  2. After sending the room measurements to Dominique, she set to work coming up with a fabulous concept for his room. Between us we decided we wanted it to have a scandi look with a theme of adventure and bears (two of Rupert’s favourite things!)

  3. Within a few weeks Dominique sent me her ‘concept boards.” These included fabulous visual ideas for the sorts of things to go in Rupert’s room, plus a guide on how it should be laid out. She also sent me a shopping list (with direct links and prices) for some of the decoration she has suggested!

So, what did Rupert’s ‘Big Boy’ bedroom end up looking like? Check out the photos below!

It was really important to us for Rupert’s room to have a cozy corner for bedtime stories, so Dominique incorporated this by putting down some fabulous big beanbags

Self-adhesive wallpaper that even I can put up?!? Tick. This incredible wallpaper from xxxxxx is a must have for all new parents! Not only are the designs just fabulous but it isn’t also self adhesive, so you literally peel off the backing paper and stick it into your wall!!

This  picture  pulled at my heartstrings. Why? Whilst Ruperts bedroom has a “bear theme” his new baby sister (who was yet to be born at the time) was having her nursery decorated with a rabbit theme. I like to think that it’s Rupert Bear guiding his little sister in this print!

And the verdict? Rupert was completely in LOVE with his new room. From the second we showed it to him on  his second birthday he has spent many happy days and nights in there! (And mummy and daddy are pretty impressed with it too!)
