Hi Guys! I just wanted to share some accessories you might consider for your children's room... I just love these ladies blog! Kari and Kijsa are a pair of incredible sisters who have a fabulous and unique..fresh.. classy..style ...okay, I could go on for 'eva check them out! http://kariandkijsa.blogspot.com/
This is an old Chinese Checkers game board hanging in #1's room I found at a Antique mart...Why not try, Chutes and Ladders? Monopoly? Scrabble.. They are color full and the graphics are great. Unique, inexpensive art that a young one can appreciate with all the bold colors up to teenage years. Please forgive, but I couldn't see paying for 'bedding in a bag' of cartoon characters that my boys where going to grow tired of a year or two later. Personally, we can't afford to change room decor every time the 'wee ones' tastes change..LOL...
How cool is this, a cheap color full monogram!! Look for discarded marquee letters! This bright 'H' I picked up for only pennies... Spell out the little one's name or a favorite word. This one is hanging in #3's room... #2's room was just too messy to show the 'B' he picked for his favorite Movie character 'James Bond'
The painted trim in the boy's rooms when we moved in to our 107 yr.old farm house dictated actually what became their color scheme!. Bright red and blue with stark 'Glossy' walls... wooah! Three colors... you can build around. May I suggest picking one fave color and build around that, one bold piece , and add lighter accents..that way it isn't so overwhelming.
My advice is think long term for nursery design... think fixtures that will grow with your baby and be timeless and wont hold the room at a certain age...
Tonight's post on Kari &Kijsa talks about the ceiling... just look up!
