Time flies when you’re having fun, especially if you’re Bridget Jones. With the release of the latest film Bridget Jones’s Baby, out today, it’s hard to believe the well-known classic first graced our screens 15 years ago. We can all find some association with Bridget, from her quirky style to her shabby- chic London flat.
The new release, much like the Bridget Jones audience, has done some growing up. Bridget, now an established Television Exec, is still single but finds herself in an unexpected situation when she falls pregnant. With this news, we couldn’t help but speculate at how she would design a bedroom for her new son or daughter.
Dreaming up a beautiful bedroom design is one of the best parts of being a parent, but with numerous factors to consider, from maximising space to keeping the room cosy with furniture and accessories, the project can soon add up to quite a cost.
Using our favourite children’s bedroom collections, we have put together two examples that would be perfect for Bridget’s new arrival, including costs. Here are the Barker & Stonehouse Bridget Jones’s Baby dream bedrooms.
While the old Bridget may have gone all out with bright colours and bold designs, we like to think that the new grown up Bridget would choose a more sophisticated scheme for her little angel. Cute as a Button is inspired by one of our favourite children’s bedroom ranges, the Buttons collection. Each piece, including the Buttons Bed, Wardrobe, and Toy Box is decorated with wooden button handles for an adorable look.
This look focuses on natural colours which will promote a sense of calm and relaxation at bedtime; something that every busy parent needs! However, while it’s mostly neutral, splashes of pink and adorable bunny accessories are a subtle nod to the Bridget we know and love.
One of the biggest questions in Bridget Jones’s Baby is, will the baby will be mini Bridget or a little Mr Darcy? Either way, our next look would be perfect for both genders.
Modern Monochrome is a cool and contemporary look that’s full of playful furniture pieces such as our Jools Saar Hideaway Bed, Locker Wardrobe and Top Secret Toy Box. The simple grey and white colour scheme makes this a gender neutral choice that works for any age. After all, decorating a child’s bedroom can be a big investment, so choosing a timeless and versatile design means that the room will last from toddler through to pre-teen.
Which of our dream bedroom looks do you like best? How would you design a room for Bridget’s little bundle of joy?
