Bunking Down

My 2 older boys will be moving into bunk beds soon! I'm so excited, I loved sharing a bunk bed with my older sister when I was little!!! I was in the bottom bunk and loved stretching my legs up to push her mattress up and annoy her (sorry Rach)!

Being me, of course I went bed linen shopping before we even have the bunks. I found it hard to find something I really liked so went browsing on the internet and got the following gorgeous sets...

This duvet cover and pillowcase has a gorgeous nostalgic seaside design on one side and blue gingham on the other, so sweet.

I love this cowboy set complete with teepees, adorable.

Both sets are from Marks and Spencer in the UK, Yes! M&S are delivering to Australia!!! There is a flat delivery charge of £15 which they drop to £10 coming up to Christmas (I bought a heap of gorgeous clothes for the boys last December, pyjamas, vests, jeans, stunning black cord blazer for H and more...)

The bedlinen sets each came in their own drawstring bags in matching fabric, very cute and perfect to use as library bags.

Our boys will be going into freestanding bunks as we are renting and can't do anything built-in (someday...) But here are a pile of inspirational bunk pics...




















I particularly love the rooms with bunks for 4, so lovely for a big family :-)

As usual I just dumped these photos in my inspiration folder on my desktop without keeping track of where I found them. If you recognise them or they are in fact yours please let me know if you would like me to remove them or credit them :-)

Oh what gorgeous rooms! Do children really have such luxury bedrooms?
Saying that, some of them also look a id cruise ship meets boarding house LOL.

Ah, Marks and Spencers... I worked for them many moons ago when we still had their shops here in Canada. How I miss their wonderful quality items!
Love all the bunk bed ideas. The best I've ever seen was at a friends villa in Fiji, it was an undersea theme, beautiful colors and bedding to match. Have fun planning!

Those are great-looking duvet covers. Very sweet, vintage-looking yet still modern. That's a lot of bunk beds you found. I liked the ones with yellow covers, the ones lined up.

I, too, used to sleep in a bunk bed though I wasn't allowed on top because I was always falling out of bed! Strangely, I would just continue sleeping ...

Those kids' rooms are all sensational. I too like the ones that can accommodate 4 kids without it looking hard. Inspirational indeed.

The fanciful fabrics you bought are adorable- very playful with fun dynamic action. I too have fun memories of a childhood involving bunk beds. I didn't sleep in one, but I played with my twin older brothers on theirs. Many fights and broken things from those loft heights, ah, childhod...

Bunk beds are so fun, I remember having them with my younger sister growing up, I had the top bunk so I can sympathize with Rach ;)

The linens you got are SO adorable and I love all the wonderful inspiration photos, especially those cool built-ins!
