Will’s room is at the top of our to-do list. The poor kid has been living in a hot-pink rag-rolled room with blankets tacked over his windows for long enough. It’s bad. Do you even remember how bad? I do. Every time I go in there…and then every time I leave, I deperately pray to forget. So that is why I have been brainstorming what to do in there. And the result is a little kooky.
First, I thought “Let’s forget the old nursery…let the kid be a kid! He doesn’t need a boy room…look at him…all adjusted to the hot pink…he can handle color! Let’s go crazy!”
And then I looked around his floor and every single color in the rainbow was there…with the toys that were creating mountains of mess. I was so inspired. And so I made this colorful, rainbow hued moodboard. I think I could pull it off…but it might be a little too much for our house. The rest of the house is NOT modern…and you kinda need some clean swedish lookin’ digs if you are gonna pull off rainbow in a boys room…maybe not but this kooky idea might be better suited for a playroom.
The other option is very…well…typical. I love the beach. and water. and anything that has to do with sailing. Did you know Jeremy had a boat when I met him? We actually set fire to water one time on that thing. No joke. But that’s not the point…the point is, the idea of nautical items is very dear to us…it brought us together…and we love the aesthetic of it. But I’m afraid that it’s a little boring. Like been there, done that. Although…it would be cheaper for us. And that is always a good thing.
So what do you think? What would you choose for a little boy? Rainbow too a-typical but awesome? Or does nautical put wind in your sails?
