Decorating the children’s bedrooms with Laura Ashley

Laura Ashley wallpaper - for pretty bedrooms.

When Laura Ashley got in touch with me to ask if I would like to work with them on creating beautiful children’s bedrooms for our twins, of course I screeched an excitable “Yes please!“. For what is not to love about their stunning, high quality, classic designs and styles? I couldn’t wait to get started and make the twins bedrooms perfect for them in our new home.

When we moved into our new-build home in Worcestershire one month ago, getting Harry & Lottie’s rooms ready, conformable, cute and lovely was our main priority. And so we have recently bought new furniture from Ikea, as well as had a decorator in to wallpaper a feature wall in each room.

In Lottie’s room the wallpaper is pink flamingos, which looks amazing – and in Harry’s we went for trucks & tractors, which he loves so much – both by Laura Ashley.

The whole makeover, full rooms and the full blog post will soon be over on the Laura Ashley site, however for now, here is a little *sneaky* peak of what we have done so far. I couldn’t wait to show you!

      Thanks so much Tracey. I am so happy with it – what a difference these have made to their rooms! I know…so happy to be working with such an amazing brand xx

    Oh they are both gorgeous. I am jel, we can’t wallpaper for another 10 months, not that I’m counting or anything ha! thanks for hosting Jess x

      Well I shouldn’t have really, I know you should leave new homes for 12 months – but I couldn’t resist and we will probably do it again then anyway!!!! Hope you can get yours done really soon! Lots of time to think about what you want xx

    • August 26, 2015 / 8:21 am

      Ahhh thanks hun, SO happy with it 🙂 Love the colours xx

    Ooo can’t wait to see more of this! The car/truck wall paper would make a fabulous feature wall – hmmm… *makes a note*. Love Laura Ashley and the little finishing touches are so cute too. #HomeEtc

      Thanks Michelle – really, really pleased. Harry’s room was looking sparse and this really has made the room feel more cosy and given it character. xx

    They are both looking lovely! Flamingo print seems to be so popular at the moment, both my girl and I have clothes with it, and now I’m liking the idea of having interiors with it, too x

    • August 26, 2015 / 8:16 am

      Thank you 🙂 I wasn’t sure at first but now it is on the wall it looks striking, and yet different from other girls wallpapers. Quite grown up too! xx

    What super wallpaper choices, especially the flamingos (that’s the girly side of me coming through 😉 I think Laura Ashley has really moved with the times and adapted to changing styles, I saw a gorgeous grey leather jacket in there the other day (as a total aside!) Will be looking out for the full reveal X

    • August 30, 2015 / 3:50 pm

      Oooh sounds amazing 🙂 Love Laura Ashley so much and really adore their home range xx

    I love love love the flamingo wallpaper in Lottie’s room it’s so adorable – did you get the matching duvet sets etc? Harry’s room is looking great too – perfect for a boy.
    Oooh your home must be looking so gorgeous now with all the personal touches you’re making – you don’t muck around do you lol?

      Yes I did! Cannot wait to share the whole rooms 🙂 Thanks Sammy much appreciated xx

    I generally like quite plain wallpaper but these are really lovely and not ‘busy’ at all. I wish my whole home could be Laura Ashley! #HomeEtc

      Me too! Here’s hoping 🙂 Thanks for the comment, much appreciated xx

    I love both of the wall papers – but if I’m honest I adore the flamingo! Just too fun! Laura Ashley is great – I will have to pop into store and check them out next time I’m back in the UK, I haven’t been in for yonks. I think wallpaper is due a bit of a renaissance – everyone is all about the paint colours at the moment – but I’ve always loved wallpaper. I think there is nothing more fab than an unexpected, bold, wallpaper inside a cupboard/wardrobe. Some bold stripes would be fab to compliment these papers! #homeetc

    • August 30, 2015 / 3:51 pm

      Yes the flamingo stands out so much 🙂 It is stunning xx

  9. August 26, 2015 / 1:57 pm

    Those wallpapers are seriously gorgeous! The flamingoes in particular have really caught my eye. How exciting that you will be featuring on the Laura Ashley website? Wahoo! That’s amazing! xx

    • August 30, 2015 / 3:52 pm

      I know, very, very exciting!! Yay xxx Thanks hun x

  10. August 26, 2015 / 3:08 pm

    I love that flamingo wallpaper! You are brave wallpapering on brand new walls – I don’t want to touch my white walls, so brand new! #HomeEtc Sabrina x

    • August 26, 2015 / 7:19 pm

      I know – bit naughty really. But I couldn’t resist! Ooooops 😉 xx

  11. August 26, 2015 / 4:03 pm

    I absolutely love Laura Ashley wallpaper – no matter where else I look I always end up coming back to their collection. The star lights are so cute, I’m sure the kids will love them! Looking forward to the days when Taylor will be able to get excited about her bedroom. #HomeEtc xx

    • August 26, 2015 / 7:19 pm

      Ahhh bless, it won’t be long. They love theirs and keep asking if they can “touch the wallpaper” because the decorator told them to wait overnight! Cute! xx

  12. August 26, 2015 / 4:58 pm

    Oh I do like a sneak peek and look forward to seeing them in all their glory.
