The ‘Big Boy’ Bed, With Noa & Nani

Little Man is now 25 months old, and so my thoughts have recentlyย turned to moving him from his cot to a bed. A big milestone for him, so I wanted to get him something special. I had a little look over at Noa and Nani, and it was actually their amazing cabin beds that initially caught my eye. They are just fabulous looking (do go take a peek!), and I was so, so tempted to get one, but realistically, a bed much nearer to the floor made sense for a first bed, as I have no doubt that my little climber would come a cropper if he was up high! So, a bitย disappointed that he couldn’t have one, I mooched about further and I spotted this beautiful Hove Day Bed…..

So sweet, nice and low, and with the huge added bonus of a trundle bed underneath. Little Man has the smallest bedroom in our house, and whilst it’s still a good size, thinking to the future, a trundle bed will be perfect for him having mates over to stay. Oh, and of course Boo is already asking to sleep in there with him! So decision happily made, we just had to wait, and show pictures of the bed to Little Man, to get him excited, rather than anxious about the change.

On the bed’s arrival, I did double-check with the delivery men that I had enough boxes, as it was just 3 relatively small packages, along with the mattresses which came all rolled up. I’d expected it to take over the hallway, but it was fine, and could be kept out of the way until we had a chance to assemble it.

Each package was light enough to be carried up the stairs without a problem, and every item was present and correct. It took the Husband just over an hour to put it together, and it was pretty simple to do, with a reassuringly thin instruction booklet!

It was put together with the ‘help’ of two little people as well, as they couldn’t be tempted away from such a fascinating activity. Though it did mean that literally the second that it was ready, they were both in the bed! I took it as a sign that he liked it! Little Manย had helped me to choose new duvet sets ready for it, and the first one we have on is lots of brightly coloured transport on white. So here’s the bed, all ready, what do you think?

I love it! The white looks clean and bright, and it’s actually lower than I thought it would be, which reassures me in case Little Man falls out, and it really opens the room up after having a cot with high sides in there. Putting it together was easy, and it looks so stylish. Every time I walk upstairs now I smile when I look into his room! And, more importantly than all of this, he does go to sleep in it!!

Alongside sorting the bed, I knew that it was time for the nursery decor to go and be updated with some fresh little touches. It’s mad me a bit sad and nostalgic, as it’s the same Mamas and Papas Gingerbread range that Boo had. It’s been here for five years, so it does feel strange to be taking it all down, but times do change and move on.

I went for bright and bold colours, that I’m hoping will grow with him. We ensured the curtains are blackout, as well as the blinds behind them – we’re no strangers to this parenting malarkey! My mum, is a very handy seamstress, and so we have matching name bunting, curtain tie backs, and a lampshade thanks to her. There’s plentyย of wardrobe and storage space, thanks to Ikea, and I adore the picture of Little Man’s first painting...

Oh, and while Boo is delighted and very happy for Little Man, she has expressed some interest in having new things for herself, of course! Now, she is a big TMNT fan, and Noa and Nani have a fab range that I suspect she’d love…..
