Most homes, especially if you’ve bought a pre-built one, have walls and ceilings that are painted white or grey. This is very much understandable. White and grey are neutral colours, so they don’t really clash with the colours of whatever items the new homeowners are going to bring in. It can be said that the developer just wanted to play it safe.
As a busy mum, your home should be designed with efficiency in mind, however, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your aesthetic aspirations. When it comes to your toddler’s room, the space should be mindfully curated with pieces that are both picturesque and pragmatic. From beautifully crafted rocking chairs that will soothe your bub into slumber to cute organisation bins for toy storage, there are a number of ways to create a fantastic room for your little one.
A clean child’s room. Seems like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? Day in and day out, we organise and shelf, and try to set a good example. But it seems to just get away from us. If you are frustrated with cleaning your child’s room, and feeling like you are berating your little one about it, take some steps to control the clutters and get things looking tidy once and for all.
The way you light a space will determine the look and feel of an area. Solely turning on an overhead light every time you walk into a room may work well for lighting the entire area, but it won’t do much for unwanted shadows or comfort. There are three lighting layers that offer the solution for all your lighting problems. But only one lighting fixture can create all layers. Recessed lighting is multi-faceted and can be used in every area of your home.
If you have a spare room at home, it’s so worth making the most of it. Whether you’re renting or buying your property, this is space that you’re paying for so why let it go to waste? When you consider how short on space so many people are in their homes (especially those that live in big cities) it seems crazy to waste perfectly good rooms that you have access to.
The majority of the little touches that make a room, such as LEGO storage boxes, a desk, an array of LEGO-themed toys, minifigures and soft toys we already owned. However, once the room was completed there was something missing. We’d utilised some superhero style bedding that we’d purchased a couple of years ago when we had hoped to change the decor in the nursery for him. But never got round to using to doing it. And whilst there is nothing wrong with the bedding set it just didn’t fit his new room. Which given that he had waited so long for it, I wanted it to be perfect.
It’s back to school, but for parents whose kids aren’t quite so small, ‘back to school’ is a whole different ball game. After battling through those torturous teenage years, your eldest is finally spreading their wings and leaving the nest. Heck, who’d have thought you’d actually be dreading it?
