The ‘before shot’.
A few weeks back I started working on a little boys room. The brief was to make the room age appropriate and interactive.
When I went over last week to install the last piece of furniture (the crate bench library) for the room I was immediately hit by how interactive the room had become since I was last there.
Master L had got to work drawing his family on his chalkboard walls, cars were on the green faux grass speedway in the middle of the room and the yellow ‘sun’ fan I had spray painted was still very much held in high regard.
I see so often people overlooking the need to make these memory making spaces for kids age appropriate. I still remember my first bedroom with my pastel pink walls and matching curtains, with glow in the dark stars on the ceiling. Real kid spaces for real kid dreaming.
I was particularly impressed with the water based chalk board paint I used from Murobond, I was after a specific tone for the walls so I mixed my own using Sibella Court for Murobond’s Pirate Black and Oceania.
