All Mapped Out

We love a map as wall decor in a boy's room, or in any room for that matter...
Love the cover of this book Room for Children by Susanna Salk
 Cape Cod
 World Map Wallpaper
ordinary is boring.blogspot
 S.R. Gambrel
 Architectural Digest
House Beautiful
 Katie Ridder
 Pottery Barn
 Cote de Texas
Two huge maps that we like are under $150 and would be all the art you would need for a room..
 Urban Outfitters
There is also a great one at Ikea

Girl's Bedroom: Finished?

The girl's room is almost done...I am trying to resist the urge to
put anything else back in as I know they will add their own crap things as time goes on:)
I ordered a yard of pink chevron and covered their bulletin board
I tried to consolidate and hide the American Girl Doll stuff as best I could, and I kept the art because they love it and it keeps the room from being too grown up..they are only 6 and 8 so there will be time for that
I found some great finds at Homegoods.
This mirror was $24.99
This lacquer box was $18
and the lamp I already showed you...
I am now looking for the perfect silhouette print on etsy
to bring in that element from the inspiration room...
these are some I am considering
stella and hodge
nella designs
I also love this one...
from pretty mod
and maybe a personalized sham like this one from Pottery Barn Teen but in Pink...
Today is their official first day of summer so I am "finished" for now:) Wish me luck with that!

Gather 'Round

I think I'll add a cozy little place like this to my imaginary house... A Circle (or square) of comfy chairs.  A great place to just hang out and be together ...or alone!

Girl's Bedroom (sneak peak)

I struggle with my girl's room. It is small, they share it, and it is full of  crap  clutter they have collected from Chuck E. Cheese or Build a Bear...I had to do something.
I started with an inspiration room...
images fromTraditional Home
This is the room before...
Scary right? I started with paint...
Benjamin Moore Seaside Blue, the color inspiration photo is Benjamin Moore Gulf Stream
but on the wall it had a lot of green and was clashing with the dresser
The next step was bedding...
I saw these from Pottery Barn Teen, thought they were super cute, the right color and much more affordable than the Quadrille Paradise Background on the headboard in the inspiration photo;)
Here is what they look like on the bed...
I found this lamp at Homegoods for $29.99
and my daughter talked dad into a lovely Betta fish she named "Steve July"...don't ask.
Thankfully she went with the color scheme:)
and then she wrote this...
Stay tuned for the finished product...put a  girl's bedroom sneak peak in your back pocket...
