A few months ago I wrote a post about how I was unsure of how to pull Number Three's bedroom together. There was a huge mix of colour in there. Being the third boy, he had a room full of hand-me-downs with a smattering of presents he had been given.
Thanks to you, my lovely readers, and the feedback you gave me, I decided to pick up on the blue elements in the room. The other option I was considering was to go with primary colours but deep down that felt like the lazy option.
As I tidied and sorted over the course of the following weeks, I noticed just how much blue there was in various items around his room and in a couple of gifts he had been given for his christening.
Once I had gathered them all together, I busied myself one bright morning with finding places for them as well as tidying away a lot of clutter that had gathered in the room while he was still sleeping in with us.

|I love the elephant on this ceramic money box my aunt gave Number Three as a christening present. The hardback copy of The Wind In The Willows was a gift from my sister to him.|
|It was only as I was taking photos of the room that I realised the Ikea lampshade was already a blue-green combination. It never tied in with the colour scheme we had when the room was Number Two's.|
|Friends gave Number Three this blue wooden name plate. I had been planning to attach it to the bedroom door but found that it brightens up the chest of drawers nicely.|
|Blue and green are the main colours of in the play area beside the cot now too.|
