I hastily got some paint on the walls in August’s room a couple of years ago. Green walls and a green quilt to match, and that was kind of the extent of the decorating I did. It bothered me far more than it bothered him though — he thought his room was just fine. It had his toys and a bed to sleep in! All set.
Every so often though, he’d bring it up. “I want my room to be red!” I got a red desk for him along with a couple of red table lamps, but he wanted more. And I wanted his room to be less Christmas-colored. I had a whole plan in place to paint the walls red per his request (I would have made it work), but lately he’s been adding light blue to his wish list. Hey now! Red and light blue are great together.

Yep, this is a color palette I could definitely work with. I’ve already begun changing the room, prepping and painting the doors and trim, and getting a fresh coat of paint on the ceiling. I’m reusing most of the existing furniture and accessories, but bringing in enough of the new to make a big change and we’re pretty excited about the direction the room is heading in.
