I'm back wearing my interior-design cap (as we do from time to time, no?). I showed you my inspiration for the girls' new upstairs bedroom a little while ago.
Here's what I'm thinking for my boy. I find boys much harder to decorate - both home and body...
A giant wallpaper map on one wall...
... with blackboard walls everywhere else (will the chalk dust drive me nuts?) with white trim. Of course I plan to artistically write inspiring messages every other day in my spare time.
With hits of yellow for some sunshine. I'm thinking of painting the bed bright yellow and along with a pillow slip or two, that will do the trick.
No, I'm not planning to put a hot babe in his room, but see how great yellow looks with black and white. Just ask the bees!
Yes, I can recreate this on the blackboard...
I think it will be a room that takes him through the rest of this childhood and into his teens, when no doubt the wall map and bed will also be painted black and that will be the last we see of him!
Do you think boys are harder to decorate for?
What sort of theme would you recommend?
