One room in my house that I need to put on my makeover list is M+L's room. It's not terrible but they will be 5 the end of next month (sniff sniff) and I have done nothing with their room since I was pregnant besides replace cribs with beds. It's time or at least getting time to start planning this project.
I am thinking for going for a simple monochromatic color palette. For one it limits my choices. This is a positive thing for me. Part of the reason I haven't changed it is my constant "oh! that's cute" or "oooo, maybe i should do that." Every style. And every time I visit this topic I find a design I would love to use as inspiration. But one thing I have consistently liked for their room is a chalkboard wall (I like the half-wall in the last photo). The other thing about a black and white kids room that I like is that it can be done for pretty inexpensive. You don't need to have a ton of decor for an impact or overall feeling of being designed. In fact less is more which I think is great for a kids room because it will inevitably be filled daily with more . . . toys. One of my wishlist DIY projects is to have fabric made with their drawings to make duvet covers. How stinking cute would that be? Unfortunately will still need to work on the drawing (and writing too). But that's another topic of my decision to keep them home rather than starting kindergarten this coming fall. One more year home with me. Yes, please. And thank you.
