Arthur's bedroom interiors - with a little help from Miffy

A few weeks ago I wrote all about decorating Arthur's bedroom - This is definitely still a work in progress, and I suspect that by the time we have totally finished it, it will be time to move Arthur into a new room and put his new sibling in there (thankfully the room is very gender neutral!).  The bedroom has a neutral colour palette with greys and whites to mimic a calming sky-like environment, with designs so far focusing on stars, clouds and aeroplanes. 




There are still a few key pieces to source, such as curtains and theme appropriate cot-bed bedding - the problem here being that Arthur has a cot-bed sized duvet, but a regular sized pillow! I have also struggled to find bedding which is 100% cotton which we prefer....again, perhaps I should just wait now until we buy him a regular sized single bed!?

I love the little extra touches we have added over the last few weeks. Arthur's Daddy was born and raised in Holland, and his grandparents (my parents in law) still live over there, so Miffy (or Nijntje as she is called in Holland) created by Dutch artist Dick Bruna has always had a special place in our home!
 We already had a few Miffy pieces for Arthur, such as books, toys, comforter....but we were recently sent this coat hook and snow globe from the UK Miffy Shop and I think they fit his bedroom theme of aeroplanes and stars really well...





The only trouble is, I cant work out whether to hang the coat hook ( for his dressing gown) on the wall next to his stars, or on the side of his chest of draws....



What do you think??

We have also added some cute little grey birds to the ceiling with the help of a vinyl sticker from Love-Sticker - These came in a choice of 3 sizes and the size we have used here is medium. The sticker came rolled up in a protective cardboard tube and was super easy to apply (by my husband, on a set of step ladders - I'm not quite tall enough!) and I think the grey against the white ceiling works really well here: 



If anything, I wish we'd ordered the bigger size, or a second set....



We have literally stuck these little bird stickers up today and Arthur hasn't seen them yet - I can't wait to hear what he makes of them!!

A couple of other little soft furnishings to help his bed space feel cosy and calm...



The grey star cushion  is from the white company and we have just bought another one for when the new baby arrives - Arthur was super insistent that his new sibling needed a special star pillow too!!

Arthur loves to sit in the front of the car and pretend that he is driving - he also does this in Holland in his Grandpa's car whenever we go to visit! His Grandparents sent over this lovely little pillow case from Zara Home and we picked up a pillow from the Zara Kids section to pop inside... okay so the car doesn't exactly fir the bedroom theme but its got stars on it!!!


I think curtains are definitely the next thing we need to sort out for this little bedroom...here is a picture of his window area at the moment. We have white wooden blinds at the moment and some fairy lights along the curtain pole....I'm just not sure whether we could manage with just an additional roller blind - do we even need curtains?? What do you think??

Disclosure: we were sent the Miffy snowglobe, coathook and Love-sticker vinyl in return for an honest review.

  4. What a lovely, calming room. I really like the bird stickers on the ceiling, they are very subtle but effective. I'd put the Miffy coat hanger on the chest of drawers so it can be reached and used. I'm sure Arthur and his new sibling will be very happy in their beautiful room x #homeetc
