This week as I leafed through my Homes and Gardens Magazine looking for festive fireplace inspiration I was struck but how festive decoration seems to be very much trending towards Nordic, Scandinavian style. All very simple and beautiful, this is a style I adore but wanted to incorporate it to fit in with my current decorations.
I have talked lots in the last couple of weeks about how decorating is just not my thing, but what I do love is design so I thought I would share the inspiration behind Joe’s new tween bedroom.
Our home is very quirky and all of the up-stairs rooms are built-in the eaves of the roof. This means we have reasonable floor space but as the roof slopes, not very much wall and head space.
Because of this rooms have to be planned and designed to maximise space. Joe’s main brief was that he wanted a desk, also I wanted to also ensure he had somewhere to store his toys. To solve this we bought a divan bed with drawer space underneath and a tall thin chest of drawers to avoid taking up too much floor space, these ensure his toys are stored out of sight giving him a clutter free environment yet with easy access to toys and games.
