As the year comes to an end, we’re sharing Samuel’s room with you to see out 2017 with a POW! This stunning, bold space was created by mum Fay, and is based around superheros and bold colour to inspire creativity and play!
Tell us a bit about you:
I’m Fay (a.k.a Felicity) and I live in York with my husband and beautiful (if a little mad) boys. I run my own business making kids decor and furnishings (@how_felicity_finds) as well as working part time. I am passionate about kids interiors and decorating my boys rooms as they grow. I love to shop small as much as possible and make what I can.
How would you describe your overall style?
My style for the boys is very colourful and bold.
What “look” or theme did you set out to achieve with your child’s room?
Samuel’s Room was all based around superhero’s, but I was keen to make sure it wasn’t generically ‘themed’.
Where is your favourite place to shop for kid’s décor?
So many to choose from. It has to be IKea. Then I particularly like V and C Designs, Bold Print Studio and Happy Little Folks. [See the full list of Fay’s faves at the bottom of this post]
What did you save on / get for a bargain or DIY?
I like to make as much as I can, so in Samuel’s Room I made his bedding, bean bag and some of the canvases on his wall.
What item was your biggest splurge?
For Samuel it was his bed, as we wanted to give him the height so he had extra playing space underneath.
How long did it take to put it all together?
Samuel’s Room took a whole six months of buying and making before I then actually decorated.
What’s your favourite part of the room, and why?
I love his gallery wall as I just had so much fun doing and it’s so versatile to change and update.
Is there anything you wish you’d done differently? If so, what?
I would have loved to have given him a blackboard wall, but was vetoed by the hubby!
