As baby Austen is getting a lot bigger and a lot more mobile, we have to start contemplating the next stage for his room as he is a lot more mobile and now enjoys sitting and playing in and around his bed, so access in and out of his bed is becoming more and more essential, but most of all creating a room that he wants to stay in and play safely by himself.
This got me to thinking about kids room design and I dreamt up this starry night room reveal as a result, with a beautiful dark wall in Dulux Ohaupo and lighting it up with a soft grey carpet and dove cot.
The inspiration for this room not only came from the fact that I originally really wanted a girl, so I am exercising all of my baby girl hopes and dreams in this room reveal, but also from the gorgeous Kip & Co Starry Night bedding print which you see in the cot and play quilt.
Then for the wee one, having a cot where you can take the sides off for when they are at the age where they can get themselves up and out of bed is great as they can entertain themselves in their room before and after sleep (if you can train them to).
The other great thing about this room is that Navy and Grey is a pretty gender-neutral colour palette. All you need to do is take out the pink accents from this look, and you have a look that would be perfect for either boy or girl.
I would deifintely enjoy tucking up my little guy to sleep tight in this starry night room.
