In February, we decorated our spare room for Henry, so that the twins could each have their own bedroom. And although he seems to float between his new room, Oscar’s room and the room he used to share with Heidi, I think it’s time to update their old room to create a more girly-themed space for Heidi.
I’m really excited about decorating Heidi’s room as it the first time I’ve done a girl’s ‘bedroom. I’ve been doing lots of planning and pinning on Pinterest (check out my board here)! And although I haven’t started ordering anything yet, I’ve been doing lots of online browsing for accessories and soft furnishings, which will play a key part of the newly decorated room.
One of the first things I’m planning to buy is a duvet cover set. I think duvet covers provide a focal point and I’m planning to use it as a starting point and work everything else around it.
Here are some of duvet covers that are on my ‘possible’ list:
- Horse Show Duvet Cover – Yorkshire Linen
I like how this duvet isn’t too pink and the horse theme is quite unique. I really love how Yorkshire Linen also do a range of other accessories, such as curtains and bedspreads, to complement their bedding.
- Magical Unicorns Duvet Cover – Yorkshire Linen
I really love the unicorn and rainbow theme of this duvet as both unicorns and rainbows are very fashionable at the minute. I think I’d be able to get some great accessories for this theme. I also really like how this cover is reversible too, providing a bit of versatility. Yorkshire Linen have an extensive range of children’s double duvet covers, which can be viewed here: http://www.yorkshirelinen.com/ duvet-covers/childrens-duvet- cover-sets/double/ on Yorkshire Linen.
- Skandi Geo Print Duvet Cover – Yorkshire Linen
As I’ve been gathering inspiration for Heidi’s room, I’ve really been drawn to more contemporary skandi style designs and this duvet would work really well for this theme. I love grey and pink together and I’m considering these two colours as a colour theme for the room.
- Amelia Ballerina Bedset – Laura Ashley
Heidi is really into ballet at the minute, so I think she’d love a ballet themed bedroom. This duvet is really pretty and would be the perfect feature in a ballet themed bedroom.
- Sofia Butterfly Bedset – Next
I like this duvet set from Next as the colours are a bit different from the usual pinks. It’s very bright and vivid. Heidi also loves butterflies, so I think she’d be a big fan of the butterfly print.
- J By Jasper Conran Kids Pink ‘Seersucker’ Bedding Set
I love the simplicity of this duvet set from Debenhams. It would be really easy to buy accessories and would also work well in a skandi themed room.
I think number 3 is my current favourite. What’s yours?
I’ll do a before and after post once we’ve finished. In the meantime, I’ll be sharing some of my other finds and inspiration along the way, so keep a look out!
