    We swapped rooms with our son at Christmas so that he and his brother could share the bigger room. He had all sorts of ideas regarding colours but we were in a rush to get it done so literally just swapped all the contents. I’m glad we did leave it white as there’s enough colour between the curtains, rug and the boxes in his kallax units and we’re not precious about him having a gallery wall of pictures stuck on using tape because we hadn’t redecorated. I’m sure when he’s older he’ll definitely want a say in how it looks which could be interesting as he’s always going to have to share with is brother!
