One of our dear IG mamas that we’ve been following for a while, contacted us to let us know about the updates of her son’s Lex’s room, now that he has turned four. We already knew that she would have something exciting to share with us, as his room was featured earlier here at Kids Interiors, when he was three. It was already a playful and creative space and we’re so glad that his mom Shanah, chose us to reveal the new version of the room for the the very first time on the web! Let’s take a tour…
The main striking update is of course the mid-high sleeper from Flexa. Lex wanted a high bed, but the thought of it didn’t quite reassure his mom, as Lex is still so young – so the Popsicle bed by Flexa was the ideal solution. It appealed to Shanah by its playful colour, great design and quality. Lex is is also really happy about it, being really proud of his “big” boy’s bed and loves playing underneath it.
If you happen to be familiar of the first version of Lex’s room, then you’ll see that the dresser and the white cabinet by Ikea remained – these timeless pieces easily fit into any kid’s room, from toddler to teenage. The cute wooden house too, where Lex can enjoy hours of peaceful reading time, or for fun pretend play.
Shanah chose soft mattresses by Danish brand By Klip Klap to make a cosy sofa space where Lex’s parents can sit too. They’re really practical, as they can easily be moved around in the room and turn into a temporary day-bed.
The new version of the room also had the wall décor changed. Too many fixed shelves and hangings weren’t an option because of the hard walls, making it difficult to drill – so placing wall decals was the easiest solution. The bear and bunny were removed, leaving space for adventurer sailing ships, more suitable for a “big” boy. The wallpaper was also changed from storks to mountains.
Lex was lucky to have a slide in his room since he was three, it only changed from being suspended to a furniture to a centerpiece. Tons of hours of fun play with his friends! Lucky boy indeed.
He even has a tool bench where he can make creative things himself too.
To conclude the roomtour, Shanah gave us and our readers a useful tip of advice when decorating a kid’s room:
“Involve your kids! Let them pick out a wall colour, mural sticker, the bed. It’s also easier to limit their choices. What I do is pick like a top 3 and let my kids choose from it. That way I can have something stylish and yet Lex and his brother feel like they’ve picked out their whole room themselves.”
