An enchanting boy’s room in grey and yellow

Hi! I know, it is not Tuesday today but I will share one awesome kids room with you anyway. First of all, because special rooms (it is one amazing boy’s room, trust me!) do deserve an exception. And second, because I am also introducing you to my friend Ursula from Room to Bloom.

Ursula is based here in London and she is running a lovely children’s interior studio. I am pretty sure that you have seen her work somewhere before. And lucky me, she will share her projects from time to time here on Paul & Paula with us. Yay!

Welcome Ursula, so excited to have you and so excited to share your work here. Starting with a very lovely room for a boy called Finn:

Today I’d like to share a grey and yellow bedroom I designed for a little boy called Finn. I designed his room in tandem with the nursery for his baby sister, which you can see here.

In both rooms I worked with the existing carpet and wall colour, as the rooms had recently been decorated, yet they’ve turned out very differently.

Finn had outgrown his nursery and was ready for a change. His parents wanted a stylish room with a playful touch. A house bed was the starting point: it makes a good first bed as it is low to the ground and feels enclosed, creating a snug corner and focal point for the large room. I anchored the bed with an abstract two-tone mountain-scape backdrop, turning into a border on the adjacent wall. And I like how the border continues over the built-in wardrobe, almost hiding it, whereas previously it had been a stand-out feature.

I chose grey bedding to blend in with the decor, which gives a restful feel, and added some fun cushions to liven things up. Cotton ball lights, easily accessible book ledges, a play table and animal decor create a more playful atmosphere.

On the other side of the room, locker style cabinets offer storage for more books and toys. There is a toy chest for larger items. As Finn is really into his cars, we added a road rug, which also breaks up the expanse of the floor a little. Finn now loves playing in his room – mission accomplished!

Thank you Ursula, in love with the room!
