There’s loads of things I love about being a mummy, but one of the things I love best is making the girls rooms look lovely. Over the last few months Rob and I have have been completely transforming Lila’s room. I have wanted to do an ice cream theme room for her for ages. Last year I started picking up little bits and bobs when I saw them. The room is still a work in progress and I have lots more little craft projects planned, but I thought it would be nice to share the progress on here gradually.
As with all great projects, the first step was creating a Pinterest board with lots of ideas and inspiration. I created a board for all things ice cream theme and another for storage ideas.
One of the first things we did was re paint her walls. We wanted to paint the wall behind her bed a very light cream so it would look like ice cream. So I chose a shade called Fine Cream from Dulux which is just off white.
I bought some sprinkle wall decals from Etsy and stuck them all over the wall. I love how much colour this added and Lila absolutely loved it.
Her bed currently has flamingo bedding from Laura Ashley on it. Even though it’s not on theme, I just love it so much and the colours are so pretty.
I got a lovely bedspread from Laura Ashley to go on top. This is covered with little tassels and I love how well they go with the sprinkle wall.
To finish off the bed I’ve added a square ice cream cushion from Tiger which I got Lila last year. I also added the ice cream cushions which I featured in my Home Bargains haul a few weeks ago.
I picked up a few other bits from Tiger last year, including these little hooks and clock. The hooks are going to go on the back of her door. I also got a paper ice cream garland from Tiger which I haven’t put up yet.
I got these lovely ice cream pictures from Ikea last year as well. you can tell I’ve been planning this for a while because of how much ice cream themed stuff I’ve been hoarding!
This paper ice cream was also from Tiger and came in a pack of two. For now I’ve just hung it from her light shade.
As I’ve already shown in my Home Bargains haul I got loads of extra ice cream theme stuff there recently, but I thought I’d add the pics again here, so it’s all in one place.
As I mentioned above the cushions have gone on her bed. Nice taking the pictures of her sprinkle wall above, we have also put some little picture shelves from Ikea up above her bed. I’ve displayed some of the pretty things we bought there and so far this is my favourite part of her room.
This was just a quick iPhone snap after I arranged the things on the shelf. I’ll take better pics when I get a chance. I have lots more planned for the room and plenty more work to do to get it exactly how Lila would like it. I also have lots of Pinterest worthy craft projects planned for the room too. I’ll also be sure to write a post about how I store all her things and how I organise everything. So watch this space!
What do you think of the ice cream theme? If you see any other nice ice creamed theme things while you’re out and about be sure to let me know. And yes, I have seen the new ice cream print at Cath Kidston and I am very excited!
