At the moment, Erin’s bedroom is very neutral. I started decorating way before she was born and also before we knew that she would be a girl. Her walls are a sort of truffle colour and her furniture is white. I went with white because I knew that it would match any theme we choose later down the line.
Now that Erin FINALLY sleeps on her own, we are faced with moving her from a cot to a cot bed. This has gotten me thinking about how I would like her room to be when she’s a bit older!
When I lived at home I had the small bedroom which could only fit a single bed. It was a pretty boring divan and not somewhere special to sleep. I want Erin to have something she feels totally relaxed in so she rests well. Ollie and Leila have a fantastic range of girl’s beds and I would find it hard to choose between them.
Erin already has a toddler bed but I love this Frooti Midsleeper. It comes with a chest of drawers which can be placed underneath in various places or elsewhere in the room. I really love that you can build a sort of fort underneath. I think this would be a great place to cosy up and read, maybe putting some fairy lights up too.
A midsleeper can only last so long really. As Erin gets older she will probably want something a bit more grown up and more sophisticated. The Fargo Ivory White High Sleeper with Day Bed and Desk would be perfect. The desk underneath would make a lovely place to get homework done while the daybed doubles up as somewhere to sit and read as well as being somewhere for friends to sleep!
Erin has a pretty big bedroom right now seeing as she’s only 18 months old. However, the free space will get smaller and smaller as she gets older. Both of these beds have additional storage or extra features which makes them work better than a regular bed.
What kind of bed would you choose for your child’s bedroom if you had a choice?
