    Would you let your children pick paint colours? What could *possibly* go wrong?!

    Colourful doors for children's rooms

    Spoiler: We did, and it all turned out fine in the end. Phew.

    Purple doors in children's rooms

    As a result of our loft conversation last year, we ended up with a new set of very new bedroom fire doors that were very… beige (due to building regs, not by choice!). As Eliza’s room had previously had a green door you can see here, we thought it would be more – colourful – to paint them.

    As for the colours, we let them choose – although we did have a vague idea of what they would pick (based on their current favourite Power Rangers, what else? Seems like a sensible a reason for making interior design choices as any).

    I thought it was a great idea to do some painted mountain peaks, a la Pinterest, the girls wanted to freehand draw on some patterns, so we settled on the happy medium of plain block colours in the end.
