The print above is probably my favorite thing in Syd's room. It's definitely staying and I'd like to bring in a little more of the orange in the print. The wall color behind it, not so much. I'm kinda tired of it after almost 3 years and am ready to change things up. I'm thinking yellow! (Though I just read somewhere that the color yellow is hardest on the eyes and makes babies cry more. Huh...) I started thinking it was time to redecorate when I bought the toddler bed since not having a crib in the room will really open things up. We're not quite ready to put up the toddler bed yet, so I figure I have until Christmas or Syd's birthday in February to complete my room "make-over".
This quilt is what inspired me to try to make one for Syd's toddler bed. Have yet to get started but think it will look really cute in her room once it's all finished. I'm thinking lots of fun pillows too.
For the walls:
Frames by Amye123
You Are My Sunshine poster by thewheatfield
La La Love You poster by SparklePower
Patchwork Hoop Art by MerriweatherCouncil
Modge Podge Clock by The Tortoise and the Hare
How cute is that clock? Follow the link above for the DIY info. I'd like to make something similar but maybe using a fun polka dot fabric. Minus the flowers. They're cute but I like to keep things simple. Since it's a small room, I probably will have to narrow down the ideas as I really don't like cluttery walls. Maybe a grouping of embroidery hoops and bold frames over her dresser. . .
Expedit Bookcase by Ikea (or as I like to call it, my home away from home)
I want to replace the smallish bookcase in Syd's room with an Expedit. I just love this thing! And the price too :) I've already got the toddler bed and we'll be keeping the same dresser so we're all set there.
If you had all the time and money in the world, how would you decorate your kiddo's room? Or your own?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
