Confessions of a stylist: Dinosaur Room

 Whether it’s learning them all by name or just stomping around the house roaring at the top of their lungs; dinosaurs are something most kids are fascinated with at some point in their life.

When I decided to create a new dinosaur design to add to my range, I knew I had to turn my Son's room into a dinosaur themed room.

After deciding on a jungle vibe, filled with greens like olive and sage, mustard and cream. I started sourcing as many dinosaur-themed items as I could find!

The first item to go into my Son's new space was of course, my new Dinosaur Bookends and Dinosaur Shelf Figures. I knew they were a winner when my Son kept roaring every time he saw them!

Then I started looking for bed sheets, and I didn't have to look any further than Adairs. Their Prehistoric Sheet Set was perfect for my Son's new colour palette!

To finish the bedding off, I choose the cutest Dinosaur Cushion in Eucalyptus from Peppermint Tree Creations, along with their Rectangular Cushion in natural.

I could picture dinosaur footprints going along the wall and up to the ceiling, giving the look of a dinosaur stomping along. The Dinosaur Footprints decals from Blond Noir and the bone and olive colours instantly transformed the room, giving it a strong focal point.

Every room needs storage and the beautiful Quilted Storage Basket from Bambini Delights is so handy for storing all those little pieces like teething toys and rattles. Paired with their Lamp and Ceramic Vase, being able to match all the products in a similar colour was so convenient.

I love the touch personalised decor brings to a little one's room, so I always make it a point to include some personalised items and bonus points if it's also practical. The Name Light from Lumi and Co and Money Box from Little Keeps Collection was no exception; perfect for keeping those night time fears at bay and all that pocket money safe.

No room is complete without a name sign, and this stunning 3D Layered Acrylic Name from Letterly had to take pride of place right above my Son's bed.

Nothing says dinosaur room more than a dinosaur name plaque, and this Acrylic 3D Name Sign from Peachy Rose Designs was love at first sight.

Artwork brings together any space, and I needed some that said welcome to our dinosaur room. This stunning watercolour Sleepy Rex from Wild Oath Collective, which I hung with the Magnetic Hanger from Bambini Delights, gave my Son's room a relaxed, sleepy vibe. I'm still waiting to see if this will also mean more sleeping will occur! wild oath collective sleepy rex

Then I completed the look with this Brachiosaurus Footprint Artwork in sand fly from Blond Noirand these Billie Brachiosaurus and Scout Stegosaurus art from Paper Lee, which are actually a paper collage, and I love how they give the room a unique look.

The Dinosaur Carousel from Lillo Creations has captured the heart of my Son with its sweet melody - Castles in the Sky. He adores watching the little T-Rex chase the car around and around for hours on end.

Texture is something that adds depth and interest to a room, and this Mini Tassel Banner from Little Cloud Lane paired with this stunning Knitted Word from Jaye and Co and Mini Felt Bunting in latte from Baby Jones Designs, was just the right amount to elevate this space.

Wooden wall decor is another decor must have in my opinion, and I loved how I could customise the colours of the Dinosaur Set from Designed By L to match my Son's colour scheme.

As soon as I saw these T-Rex, Triceratops & Stegosaurus Wall Shapes from Ava and Harper Co I felt they would be the perfect fit for my sons dinosaur room. And of course, they look right at home!

Zavyanne never fails to deliver with their cute plaques and wall scripts. Their new Rawrsome Plaque and Dino Script were the finishing touches the room needed.

My Son's new dinosaur room couldn’t have come together without the help of so many wonderful small businesses. I honestly can't thank them all enough for coming together to bring my Son's new room to life. I hope you love my son's new dinosaur room as much as we do!
