The girls rooms have been a real labour of love over the last year or so and are constantly evolving! We are now thinking about moving Annie and Maddie in together and giving Abi a room of her own but for now, things will stay the same.
We love, that when we look around the rooms, so many things have been made, given or preloved! Johnny painstakingly made the bunk beds last year, which I still love and the oak treads of the ladder set a tone for the room. My dad made the shelf and I did bits and pieces too. All in all, it’s a room with us all at its’ soul and I love that…different things have different stories and it makes for a cosy, gentle room that is uniquely theirs and ours all at the same time.
I love it tidy but they love it best with their stuff strewn, lying on their tummies on the floor, engrossed in their latest creation.
I have fond memories of my bedroom growing up…I could tell you lots of little details, things that are ground in my memory. The importance of a space in a home that is theirs to just be.
I hope they remember theirs as fondly.
