Ever since we moved into our new place, okay, ever since I found out we were going to move into our new place, I’ve been dreaming up ways to decorate it. Now that we’re settled in with our own things, I’ve been making a home decor wishlist using secret pin boards (via Pinterest) for each room that I want to update. Today I’m sharing my dream for a grayscale bedroom for Søren.
Søren’s room is first on my list because once we moved in we quickly realized that his giant bunk beds were not a good fit, literally, they take up over half of his bedroom. Not only do the bunks eat up floor space, but they take up precious wall and air space as well. His old room was light and serene and I wanted to keep the same feeling while also making it cohesive with the rest of our home.
Clothing & Toy Storage
In Søren’s old bedroom we were able to place his dresser inside the closet but that isn’t the case with his new room. His room is much smaller now and the closet simply doesn’t have the space to accommodate it, so out it goes! His new dresser will house toys in the bottom drawers, as well as the drawers under the bed, and the basket on the floor.
Sleeping & Lounge
Søren has been asking me for a chair in his room for a long time and since this one doesn’t fit in Aiden’s room, Søren has inherited it. He’s really excited about having a place to read and to sit and tie his shoes. His bed is a daybed, so he keeps calling it his “couch bed” and is excited that his older brother can now fit in it without having to duck.
Color & Decor
Søren really loves ocean life and whales are at the top of his list. Our trip to Iceland was also very special to him so the two prints I picked out from Coco Lapine are just perfect for his room. He also loves anything shiny, so swapping some elements of his room to silver are a bonus. The rest of the colors are serene and updated and fit in with the rest of the house nicely.
