It’s time to finally pull it together and complete a few kiddie room designs in this household. For the last 8 months I’ve been preparing to move back east for my husband’s job. I also had a baby on the way and because I was so busy sharing my opinion about everyone else’s nursery, I didn’t take the time to decorate my own. I figured, “What was the point if we were putting the house on the market?”. Well, it looks like we are officially staying put for one more year. And now my baby will be 5 months this week so like my postpartum figure, I can’t claim, ” I just had a baby” as an excuse. So without further ado, I hope you’ll join me on my latest personal decorating journey. First stop, a creepy-crawly masked superhero for my tot…
Thank god for Potterybarn Kids. They probably got the same request I did.
I am sitting here wondering how my toddler grew up so quickly. I am also scratching my head thinking, “Since when did room decor become a democracy?”. Tonight’s bedtime conversation went something like this:
M: How do you want mommy to decorate your room?
DS: I want Spiderman!
M: Really? How about this…What colors do you want in your room?
DS: I want red, blue and….Spiderman!
Okay, I get the hint. Besides, I’ve ask the same questions all week to no avail. So here goes readers and fellow decorators: How would you decorate your child’s room in a theme without a theme? Do you have any clever superhero or Spiderman specific ideas you can share with me? Mom’s of girls, did you really give in to Disney Princesses?
Oh and did I mention that I can’t stand themes! If you’ve been following me, I am the mom who miraculously pulled off a Thomas the Train birthday party without the Thomas. I also happen to be working on a Hungry Caterpillar book themed nursery (more to come) without the caterpillar. So is a traditional (see bunk bed) Spiderman toddler room possible without looking like you’ve walked straight into a Marvel comic?
Wish me luck! I look forward to blogging about the room makeover over the next month. While I am anxious to get your opinions, I guess the true judge will be my three year old!
