i feel like our little charlie is growing before my eyes. he is 2 months old already, which means we've only got a few more months until he can sit up & it's time to move him out of his cradle. because we often have interstate, international & what sometimes feels like intergalactic guests, our spare room needs to remain as a guest bedroom.. for my sanity at least. meaning mirka & charlie will be sharing a room. for now at least. so, as much as i love the bright pink & orange colours in mirka's room as it is now, i'm planning on switching over to blues & greens when charlie graduates from his cradle & our bedroom. oh man, it will be so nice to sleep in pitch black darkness again & without the magic white noise cd playing on repeat all night. that cd is crazy-makin stuff, but it works a treat at keeping charlie asleep. so, the plan is to get some joinery made up in the kiddlywinks' room that will be their beds with lots of storage underneath. then it's a matter of what bedding to give the room some personality & that's ok for both genders.. not too baby either.. i don't mind splurging on some nice bedding, but i don't want to do it every 2 years. with all that in mind & using charlie's dwellstudio owls blanket as a starting point, i've ordered some gorgeous soft grey & blue doonas from kidostore that i'll pep up with some cushions (made by kingsley - hello kingsley, that's ok isn't it??) out of the happy fabrics i bought from central park.
update: in case you're wondering, the bedding prints are danish brand rosenberg & the owl cushion is donna wilson.
