Advice please!
We are wanting to upgrade to a king bed. Really been struggling to find a bed frame that my husband and I love. Considering just getting an ensemble, but not sure if that's too boring πŸ˜… Who has one and are you happy with it?
  • Get an ensemble ofcourse & make your own bed head on the wall. Padded fabric/gate/timber...anything you ❀️

  • Just an ensemble because I couldn't commit to a bed head and very happy! Later down the track if we find a bed head we love we can get it. But so far I love just the ensemble!

  • I love a non bed head bed. It means you aren't locked in lol! I hate restrictions πŸ˜‚

  • Ditto to what @belletallon just wrote. I was going to suggest padded. Just some pegboard cut to size, foam from Clark rubber and some upholstery fabric stretches around and stapled to the back of the board. Being peg board, it has holes that you can secure self covered buttons through if you wish to have the headboard studded

  • King bed ensemble and use 3 European pillows as the bed head along with lots of pillows/cushions.

  • @justy_olive I totally agree!

  • We have a king ensemble and it's the bomb!

  • King beds forever. And of course king pillows too πŸ˜‰

  • That wall πŸ˜³πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» sorry no help I'm sure lol x

  • We went for the king Koil ensemble. Love how "open" an ensemble makes to room feel.

  • Jardan for sustainability, also @mexsiibedheads an option

  • I love the @incyinteriors four poster we just bought in king πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

  • I do!

  • Hubby and I just have an ensemble base from IKEA. It's sturdy and does the trick. You can change the coloured cover in it whenever you want, and can put whatever headboard behind it. Brilliant. Also, koala mattress πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

  • We need a king bed too. So I'm following this closely!

  • We have a king @retrojan bed and we love it! It's a full house most nights πŸ‘πŸΌ

  • We got our bed from Curious Grace and are so in love. It was so hard to choose as they have so many beauties! Also, Koala mattresses are incredible! We could never go back to any other!

  • We bought our King at Snooze. They have system where you mix and match your bed head and frame so you can create something perfect for you. We love how it turned out

  • We have a king ensemble of Ikea and we still use the old 'back' of our old bed, just between the bed and the wall. Still need a nice headboard, but didn't find the time and mood to search for one. But love the bed itself!

  • @meettheshepherds just checked them out, ooh they have some nice beds. Which one did you get? Thanks for sharing... out of all the beds on the market, that's the kind of style I was eying off.

  • @alexandraguy12 I've heard a few people recommend the Koala mattress. Definitely need to check out! Thanks x

  • @bianca.serratore I do love a good four poster bed! Just wasn't sure if our room was too small for one. I thought when we finally build our house and have a big bedroom I'll get one!

  • @thepillowslipstore ooh I've never owned a king pillow. Must look into this πŸ‘‘

  • @sarahplustwoandjax good to know! Pascal joins our bed every night in the early hours of the morning. I'm in no rush to stop him from doing so (I love spooning him πŸ˜„). Just need more room!

  • @lananhannan love our curved corners ☺️

  • @kateoliver koala mattresses are ahhhhmazing!

  • We made our bed out of wood 2x2. A really basic frame and then we used a gorgeous piece of wood from a table top that we got in an auction and took the legs off and mounted on the wall. The wood grain is beautiful. It would be easy depending on your level of diy skills to clad the bed frame in wood too.

  • We originally had a king ensemble, but then ditched the base when we found the right bed frame. Definitely prefer having a bed frame ... makes the our space feel more open xx

  • Icon by design and we love it!

  • Hey @kateoliver im nicola I'm crystals and hollys cousin and I got a king ensemble a year ago I got a nice dark grey material bottom and I also added a nice bedhead coloured in almost the same coloured material there were heaps to choose from looks really nice too 😊 the ensemble itself I think is awesome the bases aren't hard to move they are lightweight if that helps πŸ˜„

  • mdebsy 2M ago

    Sunil and I have one and I wish we had stayed with a queen. We bought a Sealy Posturepedic with some extra padding on top and within a short time the shape of our bodies appeared either side of the bed with a pronounced hump in the middle. We also sleep far apart, no more close cuddling because of the hump. It's like two separate beds pushed together.

  • Love it!

  • We have a king from Snooze, dark stained timber on the bedhead that curves back towards the wall. We spent a little more than we were planning, it was one of those pick and choose the style beds, but we are happy with it

  • Just wait, something is sure to be around the corner. Has hubby thought of making one himself? You could carve a traditional marriage knot into the head?

  • We have an ensemble and you can make it pretty with big euro pillows... but... I am currently looking for a bed head to add πŸ˜‚

  • I'm going to go against the crowd, I actually don't like ensembles, changing the valances is annoying and you loose that storage space if you don't have a lot of cupboards but I also prefer the look of a bed frame and beadhead too. Although I don't love our current one as it was a compromise and to fit our budget, I would go a nice chunky modern timber bed head if I could choose again & afford, something that will be 'timeless'. You can always swap out the linen when you want a change.

  • We got the ethnicraft oak Nordic @kateoliver the wood is just sooo lovely. Also waiting for the day urban outfitters come to Aus - they have all the things 😬

  • I agree with the boring!

  • PM sent πŸ˜„

  • We have a king and it is fab for whole family snuggles as little wake up and wander in in the mornings! Also great for family reading at night. I love our bed frame and it has an angled bed head you can rest your pillows against for sitting up to read! If I got a new one I might go with one that had storage drawers or something handy like that underneath though.

  • We went looking for something super plain and simple and walked out with a dark blue velvet bedhead and base with drawers πŸ’™ whatever you decide, king is the bomb.

  • @dialmformummy whoa, that sounds so lush πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’™

  • YES we have a king ensemble from Harvey Norma and it’s the best! We just put a black valance over the base and have lovely linen sheets, plain, comfy and gorgeous

On the weekend @crystalfrost and I decorated our first wedding. Was a lot of work, but so rewarding. I’m most proud about the flower foliage hanging behind the bridal table. I came up with the idea on the day an hour before the wedding started πŸ˜† and it turned out better than I could have imagined. So many beautiful native flowers to play with 😍 Was such a beautiful wedding 🌹 oh how I love young love ❀️

Can’t believe how proud I am of Finn.

For all of those with children who have delays or learning disabilities, I hope you can be encouraged by Finn’s progress. I remember a time where I used to wonder if he’d ever talk. Then I would wonder if he’d ever use two words together which he finally did when he turned 3. Then I wondered if he’d ever be able to speak a proper sentence and not use filler gobbledygook (remember that video of him talking about his day at preschool? Please check #talkingwithfinny to see, down the bottom 3rd last video). He started out at school with people not always understanding him and his pronunciation and now he can read a book!
He can bloody read!!!!! πŸ˜„
I have to credit his amazing teachers who are so fantastic with him and genuinely care and are proud of him.
Finn’s intellectual delay doesn’t stop his willingness to try, which I think is his biggest strength. He’s so eager to learn and please his teachers.
So if you’re going through a similar journey with your child but are in the earlier stages - take heart and believe they will get there πŸ’–
Finn’s still playing catch up and has a long way to go, but he continues to soar πŸ¦…βœ¨

Dance like nobody’s watching. ////////// Or dance in front of a hedge with your 3 boys watching, snapping photos and laughing at you, either or is acceptable and just as whimsical πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜†β™₯️

Made raw caramel slice. Soooo yum πŸ˜‹
With Finn being Coeliac, there’s always a high risk of cross contamination of gluten when going out. So he can never have treats other than homemade or gross packet stuff. So I always make bulk treats and freeze them to pull out for special occasions and future parties to attend ✌🏼

Little darling.
He came home yesterday begging to not catch the bus home this afternoon because a girl from his class is catching it (she doesn’t normally go on it, but is going home with a friend). She keeps teasing him about his glasses and calling him names because of it. She has threatened to flick his glasses off him if he catches the bus this afternoon.
Breaks my heart, he was really distressed about it. I hate that he’s getting teased about his specs. To me his glasses are awesome and compliment him perfectly β™‘

So this afternoon we’re picking up the boys from school and going out for Gelato πŸ§πŸ’•

Just a couple of catz 🐈
I need to take more photos with me and my boys whilst they’re young, something I hardly do. Even if they are silly ones like this 😸. I know once I’m old and grey or even just in 10 years time when I’m 40 I’ll be wishing I had taken more of them to look fondly back on πŸ’—
