My kiddies share a bedroom, and luckily this works really well for us. They are both pretty good sleepers, and they seem to genuinely enjoy sharing their bedroom space.
As they get older, their bedroom is increasingly becoming their haven; a space they run off to together, to giggle and play and hatch plans. And as they get older, it some how seems more important for them to have ownership of their room; for it to be really theirs.
So lately I've been working on updating their shared bedroom, and making it reflect a little more of their individual personalities. You can see the post I shared of their bedroom from a year ago here which looks so baby like to me now. It was perfect for them at that time, when they were still very much in the transition from babyhood, but I love that the new style bedroom is something a little more grown up, and is the kind of scheme that would still work for them in a few years time.
You can pop over to the Laura Ashley blog to find out more about my mind set and my ideas as I approached this little update. But I wanted to share some more of the photos here, and some links to some of the lovely businesses I used to help give their bedroom that real personal touch.
I've tried my best to include links to the shop where I know that items are still available to buy... sorry if they aren't. Apologies that I didn't even begin to attempt to link up all the many toys you can see, there were just so many. But if you want to know where I got something, and I haven't included a link, then just ask in the comments or on social media and I'll let you know if I can.
