It’s time to share Corners of my Home for April and it turns to Grayson’s Bedroom. The one major thing I hate about renting the most is the lack of being able to decorate my children’s bedrooms.
It may seem silly to some but for me they should have such an amazing, personal space, somewhere that feels special to them, shows them off to the world.
With Grayson there are obvious hurdles that make that hard, he can not communicate and his room on the other half is more like a hospital with equipment that keeps him alive and a prison style bed, but that doesn’t mean the other half should not be awesome.
Grayson although disabled is still a 7-year-old boy, so I try to compliment not only his developmental level but also his real age.
Mickey Mouse is his favourite TV show, since he was born we bought these little ornaments, I love the classic, retro look.
I wanted a way to display but also to be a display in themselves so I picked these retro shelves up cheaply from Amazon. They bring a great pop of colour to break up the plain walls and are easy to keep clean.
It’s then about making his room show off him, I personally love random little trinkets, I see things everywhere, for example the little G toy block is at least 30 years old and was 10p in a charity shop. The wooden JCB I bought a job lot of, off the internet years ago for all my little cousins and my boys as they are my family’s business, Deacon plays with his as well as them acting as decoration.
Toys can be brilliant decoration and add colour to a room as well as fun for their main use
Like in many rooms in our home you can see collections, I state it in my bio I am a Collector of much, I can not help myself, Grayson has a Harrods Bear for every year since he was born and they look beautiful in his room, not sure what we shall do when he reaches 20 though.
Along with a growing gallery wall (I must share his updated one soon) there is art on the walls in many places, to bring in the bright colours, chevrons and G theme with have.
Once we move in June though we are able to decorate the children’s rooms so I am looking for inspiration on how to paint Grayson’s walls and maybe this glimpse into his room will allow you to offer me advice.
What would you do ?
Don’t forget to share any posts or Instagram images of Corners of your Home, we would love to see them.
