Today I thought I would show you B2's bedroom.
I started planning this bedroom probably a year before we even started the Bungalow.
It was originally going to be shared by B2 and B3 but we had to change our original plans for the Bungalow on the advice of our plumber, due to having to connect the toilet to the septic tank.
This change in design meant that we ended up with enough space for an extra bedroom.
When I was originally thinking about this for two boys I asked them their favourite colour,
one said blue the other said green.
When I thought of these two colours together it gave me a theme of the earth,
a world map on the wall, lots of globes etc.
I bought green and blue blankets for the beds when I saw them on sale, to go with the vintage chenille bedspreads I got off eBay.
So when the plans changed and it was going to just be B2's bedroom I had to alter my design.
I kept the chenille and the blue and green blankets, but went with a more Parisian theme because B2 loves the Eiffel tower and has a desire to see it one day.
Finding Parisian boy stuff is not easy.
I searched eBay and was fortunate enough to score this vintage travel poster, from the 60's of Paris, from the US.
The only problem was that it didn't fit into a standard poster frame, so after much debate and ideas being thrown around we ended up making the frame ourselves- or rather VCH and B2 made the frame to my specifications!
It was finally hung the other day and so I have now been able to photograph it.
With a window behind me it was not easy to photograph this room without getting reflections from the glass.
This is his desk.
VCH made it out of pallets for the computers when the big boys shared the large space that has now been divided into two rooms.
I picked up the lamp at a garage sale, the globe is a vintage eBay find along with the little Eiffel towers,
the C is from Typo and the ampersand is from Lincraft.
The Eiffel tower here was a find at a local cheap shop, the notepad was again from Typo and the old chippy picture of the Arc de Triomphe was another garage sale find for $2.
This is his wardrobe.
VCH made it back when B1 and B2 shared a room,
it matched their beach hut theme,
we repainted it white.
He has his hats hung on the side.
This is his laundry basket,
I got it from Bunnings, I liked the burlap look, and rope handles on the side.
I then added
panier a linge sale
which means dirty laundry basket in French.
You have of course seen the bookshelf I finished the other day.
He is a neat freak and loves everything just so, very sparse and uncluttered.
I would love to add a few more pictures and a cork board / notice board above his desk, but he won't let me and at the end of the day I have to step back and let him be happy in his own space.
