Blue nursery for boy

Blue for boys
Having great ideas is one thing, but following through on them is another, especially when life is already hectic, with a household to run and children underfoot. Sometimes it takes just one good reason to spur you into action. When it came to redecorating her sons’ bedroom, Feilding mum Catherine Larsen had more than one good incentive – she had three. Firstly, she had plans to move her six-month-old son Isaac in with his 21-month-old brother Aaron, but she wanted to inject some personality into the room before that happened. Secondly, Catherine suffers from postnatal depression and thought that immersing herself in a creative project might help, by giving her a new purpose and sense of achievement. But the third reason... more

A stylish bespoke bedroom The cat that got the cream
Everyone knows that all a kid needs in a dad is someone who's kind, thoughtful, loving and supportive. But if they could also be a graphic designer, that would be the ultimate. That way they may get a stylish bespoke bedroom like the one Resene Dream Room winner Scott Simpson has created for his daughter Mia in their Greenhithe, Auckland home... more
A girl's bedroom with a bed in a tree

Branching out
Lucky Lola’s got a new bed in a tree and a cool retro-dairy mural , thanks to her Dad’s late-night dedication to her room makeover. Our Resene Room Three winner, dad-of-two Josh Cowley, is clearly a man who thrives under pressure. He finished this bedroom at 4am the day our photographer arrived to shoot it. The Wellington builder and former signwriter had a clear vision for his four-year-old daughter Lola’s bedroom which encapsulated the feel of yesteryear New Zealand. But finding the time to execute it proved more difficult

A Resene Dream Room winner First things first
This family was all ready to decorate their son’s room – but then had something bigger to deal with. Stripping wallpaper is an exhausting process at the best of times. And when our second of three Resene Dream Room winners Paul and Emma Anderson started preparing their son Roman’s room for its makeover they discovered three layers of the stuff dating back to the 1970s. Despite an enthusiastic start, Paul soon found he couldn’t even find the energy to keep up with his heavily pregnant wife – and the couple decided to wait until Paul took his three weeks maternity leave... more
Space ship control room design for s baby's bedroom

Beam me up baby
A shared passion for science fiction inspired Manja and Dave Lane to create this remarkable bedroom for Isaac, now 16 months. The couple set their hearts on rockets and robots as soon as they knew they were having a baby. Dave's dad Rodger Lane helped them by taking on the job of building the cabinetry. He built each piece at his home then delivered them individually while Manja, Dave and Manja's father Rob Pieters painted the room. At roughly three metres square, Isaac's bedroom presented a few space challenges of a different sort. It had almost no storage, which was something else for the Lanes' design... more

A rainbow of fresh pastel stripes has turned this little girl’s bedroom into a sunny place to play and rest

Stripe me pastel
First home buyers Melina and Michael Langley knew when they bought their Hamilton property three years ago it could do with a few improvements. But once they became parents to baby Emma and adjusted to life on one income, they soon realised that doing up their home would be an expensive and gradual process. Married to a boat builder who’s at home with power tools, Melina knew she could rely on Michael to turn her room design into a reality so she went for broke and included a paint treatment in baby Emma’s bedroom that many people might find a tad intimidating... more
