Get The Look: 6 high street buys to recreate Noah's clever and colourful bedroom

Brenda has created a fun, functional space for her son, inspired by the world around him.

Each week, we step inside a reader’s home, and indulge in some copycat behaviour, creating a shopping list inspired by their interior style.

This week, Brenda McMenamin’s (@justmyhomeinireland) bedroom for her seven-year-old son was our inspiration.

“The room has been painted like this for four years and I added the mountains on the right wall two years ago to add interest,” says Brenda. “The pop of yellow works well with the blue to break it up and add another element to the space.”

The room features all the things my son likes, from his rainbows to the beautiful star decals on the ceiling. He loves his room.

Dunnes Stores, MADE and Habitat were Brenda’s main ports of call when decorating this room. Below are six high-street products that’ll help you get Brenda’s look in your own home…
