Ethan's dinosaur themed playroom / bedroom

Here's a look around Ethan's rather roarsome dinosaur themed playroom, which we decorated last summer:

Two weeks ago, I blogged about my idea to turn our spare room into a playroom for Ethan and I'm proud to say, after a weekend of wallpapering and painting and having put the last touches to the room over the past few days, it's finished.

As mentioned in my earlier post, hubs and I loved dinosaurs when we were young and Ethan better had too as he now has a room filled with them! From some stylish, fun wallpaper that will stand the test of time to wall stickers, cuddly toys, door hangers and picture frames, Ethan can spend hours counting all the stegosauruses and T-Rex's he now has in his brand new playroom.

The colour palette is lime green, turquoise, grey and orange - it may sound odd but the tones really do work and we took inspiration from the wallpaper. We have a big Expedit bookcase from Ikea with some doors and drawers, some coloured baskets then lots of toys and special items including some of his Christening gifts out on display. I chose two big cushions in a ribbed velvety fabric as I thought he'd love the texture and we have some LED lights that give off a really nice glow. There's also a compact desk for hubs' Mac so he has somewhere to work if he needs quiet time.

Ethan and I have spent a couple of afternoons in the playroom now with his new activity mat and tummy time toy and I'm really pleased with how the room has turned out. It's bright, there's lots for Ethan to look at, and it's a multifunctional space.

Without further ado, may I introduce to you Ethan's playroom - enter at your own risk...



  1. WOW! That is a fabulous play room, I'm envious! haha! That storage system is something else too. Could use one of those ourselves! Your little guy is such a cutie!! x
