Playroom Inspiration

As you know we are moving from our cosy cottage and into a lovely new barn in a few weeks time. The decor is a perfectly clean palet. The walls are all magnolia and the carpets and wooden floors are neutral giving me the chance to get creative and imaginative.

We want to design each room slowly and make sure that we make the right choices with buying and decorating so that we have our dream decor. Apart from Rhys’s and Jasper’s room we didnt bother to decorate each room with a theme in the cottage as we knew we’d only be here short term.

The one room that’s been on my mind is the boys playroom. We’re not sure exactly whether or not the playroom will also be one of the boys bedrooms, but either way I have some fab ideas (well I think theiyre fab anyway!).


Theme 1 – Geometric colour popgeometric colour pop

I’m a massive fan of geometric shapes and bold colours at the moment and think it would make a great idea for the boys playroom. Jasper loves looking at bright colours so he’d have a ball in a room like this!


Theme 2 – Black and Whiteblack and white

I was so close to decorating Jaspers bedroom in black and white but opted for a woodland theme due to his nickname – Rabbit. Some of his favourite toys are black and white so this would be amazing for him but I’d be worried that it would be a bit of a headache and not too fun for Rhys?


Theme 3 – Never never landPeter Pan theme

I’ve found loads of boys clothing lately with quotes such as ‘Never grow up’ and ‘lost boys’ and it’s really made me think that a Peter Pan themed room would be so much fun. I could do so much with it, like put in their teepee for a reading corner, have mermaid murals on the wales and a Peter Pan shadow on the ceiling! Their imaginations could really run wild!


Theme 4 – RusticRustic

As we’ll be moving into a barn I thought that a rustic theme would be fitting. I’m really into DIY so I could make a lot of signs and storage boxes using crates and drift wood. I could also create a dreamcatcher like the one above with cute feathers and a reading station tree too!


Theme 5 – Jungle

Rhys’s bedroom is kitted out with jungle bits and bobs in our cottage so we already have quite a few bits if we decide to stick to this theme. I love the animal tail hooks for their little painting aprons and coats. I’m also a tad obsessed with the felt animal heads¬†from Urbanara which would look incredible on their walls!


Ooh decisions, decisions, decisions! You can check out more of my inspiration over on my Pinterest account.

Which theme do you like best?

Thanks for reading!

    I love your ideas. Especially Never Never Land also the geometric colours. Joey is obsessed with walls and we have 2 rooms in our house that have big floral wallpaper and he is forever staring at the walls. But I think my favourite is Never Never Land
