I have been slowly working on creating a space themed bedroom for Syd. My inspiration came from his Early Learning Center rocket – a toy which all three of my children have owned and loved – not only is it a lot of fun, but I love it’s striking vintage space look.
The room is a blank canvas with white walls, and as we rent I am not about to re-decorate, but it is easy to add details to the wall with wall stickers – which have the advantage of being cheap and easily removable if your child wants an update in a few years, or if you move home. I loved this set that I bought from Amazon and they add great interest above the bed.
I purchased this cardboard Space Rocket playhouse online for under £20 and it both looks good and Syd enjoys playing in it – I can also use it to shove all his soft toys inside when I am having a quick tidy up!
The star shaped light in the top image was another online purchase, and was only £7. I also bought these stacking robot storage boxes online from Wilko – they are perfect for holding lots of toys and I love how bold and colourful he is!
The room isn’t finished yet. Currently the windows have patchwork curtains left by the previous tenant, but I have just spotted these blinds from VELUX – they have a whole range featuring scenes from Star Wars, but as Syd is a massive R2D2 fan these would be perfect for him, and as a plus they are available as a blackout blind, which as all parents know is vital in summer months!
I would also love to add some space themed art and a rug – I have been collecting ideas on a pinterest board (see below) and will carry on adding pieces over the next few months until I am happy with the result.
So far I am happy with how the room is coming together, I will do an update when it is finished, and who knows, he might even start sleeping in it eventually – but that’s another story!!
