As you know by now we are in the middle of redecorating Harry’s bedroom. He has always had the smallest bedroom and the plan was to move him when he was out of his cot. Life got in the way and what was supposed to be a nursery room only soon turned into a big boys room which while was fit for purpose with a single bed, wardrobes, shelves and even a fold away desk it left him no where to play with his toys.
With a spare room being used as a junk room we took the chance over the Christmas break to clear that and get rid of all the junk, decluttering at the same time. We then moved him into the new bigger bedroom just in time for his brand new racing car bed to arrive.
The new room is much bigger and gives him far more room to actually play – well it did until we filled it with this huge racing car bed and a huge matching study desk which was actually far larger than I first thought it would be – I clearly can’t be trusted with a tape measure!
Although the room is now predominately car themed, this was never actually the plan as Harry really wanted a Super Hero themed bedroom, with the emphasis on Batman as that’s his favourite.
We had already picked out how we were going to paint one wall to create a feature wall in the room, a friend of ours is a painter and decorator and he will paint 3 of the walls in a light blue colour, and the feature wall will be my job. I think it should be easy enough but the more I think about it the more I worry I have bitten off more than I can chew.
This shouldn’t be too hard, should it?
I’m sure it’s just a case of taping out the building outlines and pencilling out the detailing before starting with the separate colour blocks. I have the frog tape ready and over the weekend I plan to the buildings outlined and onto the wall.
With the other walls being plain it left me with one wall I would turn into a Super Hero photo wall and with the help of a wonderful selection of poster prints from Desenio I was able to create the perfect picture wall with no effort at all.
Had I been decorating any other room in the house I really would have struggled to choose the perfect prints as they have so many wonderful ones to choose from, ones which really would suit any room in your home or office, however as I knew I was looking for Super Hero prints it was really easy to narrow down my choices, helped even more so by their inspiration galleries which group together a selection of prints which all work very well together. They had a Super Hero inspiration gallery to choose from so I was able to pick the perfect one within a very short space of time.
As well as prints they also have the perfect photo frames to showcase the prints in a simple but elegant way, or if framing isn’t for you they have clips or even coloured Washi Tape for securing to the wall in a funky art deco fashion.
I just love how a few pictures on the wall really change the whole look of an otherwise rather plain looking wall. This wall still needs painting but I just love it, and when Harry is sitting at his desk completing his homework in the upcoming years he can look at his Super Hero photo wall and know that life doesn’t always have to be plain and boring.
The prints I chose are Batman Poster (on the shelf) – the quote says:
Always be yourself
unless you can be Batman
Then always be
I also chose: Mr Racoon Blue, Super Hero, Batman Reverse, Grow Up Blue and Born to be wild.
All posters come in a variety of sizes so you can choose all the same size or mix it up as I did for our photo wall.
