September is just around the corner and while we anxiously wait to receive that email (in nine days, who’s counting with me) to tell us what school Buba will be attending, I have started thinking of making him his own learning space.
I think it’s important to have a space to call his own, where he can sit at and work on his studies and go over what he has learned in school. It doesn’t have to be his own complete office, I don’t even have one but just a little corner that is quiet away from the tv and play areas of the house. I am by no means a harper on studies. He won’t have to sit in said learning space for hours upon hours, that’s borderline child abuse. But I know my son and I know that he loves being organized and having something that is all his. I would hope a cool learning space would motivate him to want to learn and focus on his school work more.
I have been mentioning my first born going off to school a lot lately as it draws closer to the time. While I was emotional that my baby is all grown up, I am now starting to realize, he is SO ready to go to school. If you saw back in December he was already keen to learn his numbers and letters and learn how to write. I was impressed with his focus. At that time, we only had the dining room table to use as a learning space.
It’s no secret I love a good excuse to decorate, style and revamp a room in my house. I have being pouring over new online home interior shops looking for more unique and corky styles to incorporate into my house lately. I do love a good Next or John Lewis purchase but I also like different, unique pieces that not everyone will have. LoveTheSign has just that, their interior decor is full of modern and contemporary styles for all parts of the house that are on trend and very unique. My wishlist from their website could truly reach around the globe.
I was pouring over this very desk below for myself when I got to thinking they have so many great home accents perfect for Buba’s new learning space. I put together this learning space for a school boy mood board to get inspiration from and may have added a few (or all of these) to my growing wishlist too. I think this learning space would be amazing for Buba to start his school adventures in. It both suits his personality and his bedroom space. I can just envision him sat at this very desk working away on whatever homework his has brought home. I love the corky styles of each piece and think it would look amazing together. It was hard to pick just a few pieces as there were numerous variations to desk chairs I wanted for his space. My options really were endless on what I envisioned it to look like.
This has just turned my sad emotions about my little boy becoming a school boy right side up. I am more excited than ever for him to start school. I am more excited than ever to see him blossom and learn new things each and every day. As a kid, I was one of those students that absolutely loved school. Not just as a youngster but all the way through university as well. I hope that Buba feels the same way and loves to learn.
