When the childhood room becomes the guest room

guest room 1

Not that long ago I was back up at my parents' house in Aberdeenshire to pay them a wee visit. If you've been with my blog for a while you might have seen their house in the background of Instagrams or videos, and spotted that my parents like a bit of interior design. 

Growing up in that house I got to decide the decor of my bedroom at age 10. Being 10...I decided I wanted an underwater theme and spent ages drawing it out on paper and planning things (fun fact: for years I wanted to be a designer of some kind). The final design included fishes on the wall with metallic paint, a sun at one end of roof with glow in the dark stars at the other (with the shade of blue getting gradually darker), a seabed down one wall and an impressive amount of underwater themed stuffed toys and nick knacks (were you a horses girl or a dolphin girl? Cause I was a dolphin girl).

However, over the years since I've moved out it has become the guest room and recently my mum decided that it was time to redecorate. I'm not going to lie it was emotional to hear. However she did include me in the plans and we decided to stick to a nautical theme to pay homage to its previous design - and you can still see my childhood toys used as ornaments. 

As the room is newly decorated a lot of the furniture you see in the picture is still in the shops. The bed was bought not long after I moved out, however the white furniture is part of the Flute range from The stripy bedsheets are Debenhams finest, though I can't find them on their website anymore!

The white fluffy carpet is impractical in most situations. However, my mum chose it on this occasion as the guest room wouldn't have people walking in and out of it all day (such as the living room). A white carpet has turned out to be one of the most relaxing additions to the room. It makes me feel like I might be sitting on a cloud. I was the perfect setting for watching a few ASMR videos.

My mum has always had a good eye for interior design and I think she needs a round of applause. As much as I knew I was going to miss my old room, this was a lovely, relaxing room to spend time in and I hope you maybe got some ideas for your own guest room.

If you've moved out, have your parents updated your room? And if you're a parent is your kid still at home?

Love always, Morag x
