It's taken a while, but the twins finally have a room to be proud of. It combines my love of light and bright but is also still boyish enough to please them. As this house only had three bedroom, we decided to give the twins the biggest room. We knew as they grew they would inevitably need the extra room to have a sense of their own space.
These pictures show their room the day we moved in.
When I look at the above photo's I wonder how on earth we coped. Every room was full to bursting with our stuff, we had six month old twins and a 10 yr old who sulked and hated the house not understanding why we had left our previous large, beautiful home for this filthy house !
This is how their room looks now :
The view through through the twins bedroom door into their room. The blue cupboard is the white one you see in the first photograph.
On the wall where the fireplace was my husband built floor to ceiling storage shelves
My husband also made the wooden letters spelling out the twins names
The twins "reading Corner" bookcase made by daddy and cushions an absolute steal from Primark. Blinds and chairs from IKEA
