Even just a quick scroll online these days will show you a number of 'dream' rooms. From fantasy nursery inspo to monochrome or scandi little people rooms, there's no way you can miss them if you're a mum with a Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook account.

And yeh, it can be easy to get into "ohhhh I want everything" mode and spend up big time - hiding it from our other halves, of course ;)

Our little man is now 2.5 and in a 'big boy bed'. He's well and truly past the nursery stage. I've wanted to properly redo his room for a while, and thought rather than make something that requires major renos, painting and the works, let's do something a little different...

Because, let's face it, most of us are not interior designers or stylists with unlimited budgets and the ability to paint or knock down walls!

Our little spunk :)

So the room I've created incorporates achievable, simple things you can do to really make a room special. It's all about a few 'investment pieces' along with affordable and cool pieces you can find at your local shopping centre...

I'm a big fan of monochrome and love a simple black and white base. However, I really wanted to incorporate Harry's main loves - Avengers, and Lego. But still make it something I was happy to look at (because let's face it, Avengers ain't really 'on trend' haha).

Because we all don't have thousands to spend every time our babes need a room shakeup, you'll find some Kmart and Target items here.

The frames, Avengers poster, locker and hooks are from Kmart (the hooks are wooden crosses that I painted black with poster paint). All of our Avengers have been collected over the last little while from Target, and our friends at Marvel kindly supplied some extras like the masks.

The ampersand light and Captain America shield pillow are also from Target. The awesome Twig Creative camera is from Young Folk Store (if you're local to the Northern Beaches, like me, head on up to Newport to check them out!).

This storage sack by Pretty Tidy is THE BEST. So handy.

Mimosa Designs kindly supplied these amazing ABC cards and monochrome height chart. Large 'floorie' pillow from Into the Fold. 

I was so happy to have Li-Ann, the gorgeous creator of Sack Me, come on board to provide some beautiful linen that just sets the whole room off. This set is just perfect, not to mention their very awesome pineapple bean bag! Behr and Co provided this throw and OH EM GEE it's divine.

This very cool Baghera car is from Hip Kids, and he loves racing around his room on it. Not to mention his and my favourite feature of the room - his This Little Love Addison bed. It's JUST SO COOL! (and yes, it was featured on The Block recently and criticised, but I have no problem making the bed - just duck your head, Shayna!). Big thanks to Hayley and Shane for that.

Homely Creatures' black felt bunting is just so cute and minimal. I painted a spare wooden box (I think it was from wine, haha) black on the inside so Harry could keep all of his Lego men in it. He loves counting them and making sure they're all there safely before he goes to bed.

A full list of products and suppliers is below. Harry and I can't thank these brands enough for their help in turning this bedroom into his idea of heaven. We love it so much, a huge huge thanks again to each and every one of you!
