The finishing touches in William's room are now complete.
I'm a little bit excited by this space. It's pretty much exactly as I had pictured in my head, with few changes to the original plans.
You can see the before here.
The room is focused completely on William's interests. He is a little explorer at heart and I wanted the space to reflect and encourage this.
The original intention was to get a little vintage desk for in-front of the blue wall but, since following along with 30 Days to Transform Your Play over at An Everyday Story, I've been thinking more about William's play style. He's a mover and a rummager. I changed my mind about the desk and opted for some cube storage. It is the perfect area to display items of discovery plus all those factual books and more suited to William's learning style.
The reading corner has been kept simple with a beanbag and a basket for story books in the corner.
The wall art has been reorganised with the addition of some new pieces, including a washi tape W and William's birthday card from last year. I ordered it from a friend who creates beautiful illustrations. You can see more of her work here.
And then... there's the wall sticker planets! This is something I've been wanting to do for a while and am thrilled with the overall effect. There has however been some sticking issues and I am currently in the process of gluing them all to the wall.
Eventually, I plan to do something above the bed's headboard. Possibly a large wooden W but that will be a project to think about in the future.
It's no longer a baby room but somewhere for William to develop and grow. I can't imagine William growing out of the space any time soon and there's enough for it to look complete but with plenty of scope to add or easily change.
