The kids room during the years at Isabelle’s apartment.

Since it’s celebrating Isabelles apartment week due to it’s up for sale this week. I thought we could look at what have been the kids room from the start. This is the room that have been changed the most during the years – as I write about in this post. More than 7 times in 8 years! I love making kids rooms!
The first room was with this gigant rabbit bed. It was more than 1.80 meters high and the crib was behind the big nose – you can watch me make it here. I loved being in the living room and watching this crazy thing. But Della only slept there once. She stayed in our bed almost the whole first year… And by then we needed the space so I gave the rabbits head to a school near by.

After the rabbit she stayed in the crib for a while then in the crib but with one side open. I then bought this bed with a slide at Blocket and sew the curtains and painted it. It’s actually an Ikea bed from the beginning. Here is the view from the kitchen. And the opening with the sliding doors. It works so well with the kids room next to the living room.

Then little bro started to climb up that slide and it was dangerous and we needed more space for both of the kids. The bed we found on the attic at our cottage. It’s probably more than 100 years old. It was really dirty and shabby but not chic. So we painted it. The wallpaper comes from Minakani walls.

Beppes bed was put next to the window. Both my kids were climbers so they needed climbable beds really early.

And Now it kind of looks like this. Della picked the purple color on the wall and the flowery wallpaper is from Nadja Wedin. The sideboard is from Lauritz.com but it came out small insects out of it last summer so we had to throw it out. (Loud crying noises here- -loved that crazy piece).

Jenny Brandt took these 2 images for our book Rum För kidsen.

The unicorn bunkbed me and Della made together. And the old bed is just underneath.

Wonderful apartment! I wish I could buy it! I love the transitions the kid’s rooms have gone through. It looks like they are having a really fun childhood. The biggest difference I can see between their room and the rooms here in Australia is no plastic! Seems like everything in Australia has to be plastic, bubble wrapped, triple safety checked etc. No sharp corners- certainly no aerobatics! It makes me sad because kids should be kids. I had sharp corners as a child and nothing happened to me. I hope Aussie children aren’t so stupid as to not be able to play without cotton wool wrapped around them. I’m pregnant with my first and know I will be criticised for buying a skateboard and letting him climb and have adventures. I think it’s wonderful your kids are being allowed to be kids :) xx
