Zigzag, star and owl or yellow-gray children's room

boy's room stars chevron zigzag yellow gray
2 months ago I wrote to you about room design for our little sonthat we were expecting to be born. It's time to show what came of it. According to the plan, there is an owl, there is a zigzag, there is white and black, yellow and gray. In addition, a star theme has appeared.

There is also a feeding chair, which I have chosen separate post. You probably won't be surprised by my choice - you advised me in most of the comments, both on the blog and Instagram. I have been using it actively for 2 weeks - it works perfectly for this purpose. It's big, deep enough to sit comfortably but not too much, making it easy to get up from. Provides support for the head and shoulders. I love it in a duet with a nursing pillow. At the moment, there is a table next to him, on which I keep the accessories necessary for feeding. Thanks to it, I always have a diaper, a glass of water, an e-book reader and a packet of cookies at my fingertips.

I am glad that before I started completing the layette, I prepared a plan and a shopping list. Thanks to it, I didn't buy unnecessary accessories, decorations or clothes that are so difficult to resist in children's stores.

5 tips

I have prepared for you some tips that I would gladly hear myself while pregnant:


1. Do not leave planning and arranging a baby room for 9 month of pregnancy. The fatigue that accompanied me then would surely make it difficult for me to choose and prepare everything. On the other hand, the feeling after coming from the hospital, when I could put our son on the changing table and have all the necessary products and a chest of drawers with clothes ready at hand - priceless.


2. If you do not have a car that you will be able to transport larger-sized purchases, buy them in the online store - for 10-15 PLN, the courier will deliver shopping to your home. In this way I bought not only a cot, but also all products from the pharmacy, saving a lot.


3. Furniture stores usually have long lead times, for example, we had to wait over 1,5 a month for our cot. It's good that I didn't order it at the last minute, because for the first month I wouldn't have a cot.


4. Before you go to the children's store, ask your family and friends if they have any things to borrow or sell. I can already see that they are used for such a short time that most of them will not really be destroyed.


5. If you care about the individual character of the room, in addition to the offers of stationary or online stores it is worth getting acquainted with the offers of handicrafts, and here you will find portals such as DaWanda or Pakamera. You do not have to choose only from ready-made items, but thanks to direct contact with product developers, you can order personalized items for your child, usually at the market price of finished products. And if you start preparing the room early enough, maybe you can prepare something completely yourself? Although with a sewing machine we live rather like a dog with a cat, to our room I made the curtains myselfthat you see in the pictures. It cost me 2 days of work, but the feeling of pride is amazing. I still wanted to sew the sheets to the set myself, but the strength and time was not enough, that's why DaWanda user sewed them for the set.


If you are wondering where we bought or how we made individual room furnishings, you can read about it in the next post: Yellow-gray baby room step by step.

    I have a question - what are these white shelves on the wall? I read that from Ikea, but maybe you remember the name of the shelves? Because I try to find them, but somehow I fail, and I just want those with "dimples" so that nothing slips off them.

  • Natalia Piontkowska

    What bujaczek company? Very nice :)

    • 26.04.2016

      To Bright Starts hybrid swing - it rocks by itself 🙂

  • Katarzyna

    The room is decorated with taste, and every detail carefully thought out. Congratulations, nice to look at. Personally, I really like the cot.

  • 11.12.2015

    I have never ordered there, so far I printed posters in the printing house, but recently I bought two posters on Allegro: http://allegro.pl/listing/user/listing.php?us_id=38518065
    A4 size, good price and value for money completely satisfies me.

    Great room, it inspired me a lot. I have a question, can the pillowcase Owl and the pillow with the letter M be removed and washed?

    • 04.11.2015

      I'm glad 🙂 unfortunately the pillow cases cannot be removed, but the pillows were made to order, so maybe you can order this version 🙂

  • Ola

    On which wall is the silvery ice paint?

    • 10.10.2015

      Now you can see everything 🙂

  • Alicja

    A wonderful room - with us it is still a phase of plans, although I have already chosen gray and yellow as the main theme. To be honest, I have a very similar room layout, what's more, we've already chosen this armchair as you in Ikea. Zigzags have also appeared recently in Ikea.

    • 04.11.2015

      I haven't seen zigzags in Ikea, but you'll definitely be satisfied with your armchair 🙂

    A beautiful room, and where did you buy curtains?

  • 23.06.2015

    Great color combinations. Soon, black and beige will be joined by yellow, which will add 'character' 🙂

  • 06.05.2015

    Oh my, how beautiful it all came out for you <3. I am infatuated <3. A wonderful, committed mom!

    beautiful style. Congratulations on the idea! Question: where can I buy this zigzag material (yellow and gray). I will be grateful for the details. The same applies to the chair.
    Thank you very much in advance.

    and you will write from where such a beautiful cot

  • 13.02.2015

    Wow, one of the most beautiful children's rooms we've seen! 🙂

  • 05.02.2015

    A lovely room, especially those yellow accessories. As for gray, I am not convinced, it reminds me of sadness, so I would personally choose white or pastel blue 🙂

    Hello, lovely little room 🙂

    Please let me know where you bought your bedding. It's beautiful!

    Room wonderful and gave me many ideas! Can you tell where the big basket with stars and small star organizers come from?

  • 28.12.2014

    I am asking for information, where can I buy such an owl? Beautiful room! We also arrange in such colors 🙂

  • 09.12.2014

    I have a question, what is the color of the walls ?? (company, number) is beautiful

    • 10.10.2015

      I'm not sorry! It's like that!

  • 28.11.2014

    As much as I would like to have such a room 😉

  • 06.11.2014

    Your little son will certainly feel great in the room, because I rest just from looking at it. My daughter is 2 years old and I used to start just like you - today my daughter's room resembles a landfill and of course every even the smallest toy has a secret place there and you can't take anything, it's good that you have a lot of space - b, where to store 🙂 beautiful room in color - really cool!

    A beautiful room! And where from hanging shelves? 😉

  • 19.10.2014

    Lovely room 🙂

  • 16.10.2014

    Hey, I have a question. Where did you buy this changing table organizer?

  • 15.10.2014

    Great room 🙂 cute accessories! 🙂 inspirational words. How can you know how a child's sunbed? 🙂

  • 15.10.2014

    A wonderful room! Beautiful subdued colors. Could I know where the owl posters come from? I am looking for posters in this style for my son's room.

  • 14.10.2014

    what can I say fabulously!

  • 14.10.2014

    It's beautiful <3 Colors, owl motif, zigzag, I like everything 🙂 And I'm not surprised that Mikuś is so polite and still sleeps 🙂

  • 14.10.2014

    You have chosen very nice colors 🙂
    I personally do not bring anything into the house with an owl motif, I am superstitious about this - and the owl is a very bad symbol: /

    • 14.10.2014

      I am curious about this superstition, because my first gift was an owl, and it is always received very positively in my case. I also plan such additions to the children's room myself 😉

    • 14.10.2014

      just to be clear - because maybe I expressed myself wrong - I'm not superstitious, I was born on the 13th and for me it's a lucky number - always - for example. I just think the owl motif zł I don't know where it came from 😉 this is my personal feeling 😛

  • 14.10.2014

    It looks wonderful! And minimalistic with expressive accents. Until I was daydreaming;)!

  • 13.10.2014

    Cool, cozy place.

  • 13.10.2014

    wonderful owl!

  • 13.10.2014

    Beautifully! So nice;))

  • 13.10.2014

  • 13.10.2014
