When we were little, my dad had a landscaping business in the California wine country. We lived in a cute suburban neighborhood of 1950’s ranch style homes, and our house had the ugliest front yard on the block. The last thing that our dad wanted to do when he got home from work, was to design and work on our yard. Lucky for him, we were not under a home owner’s association. Not so lucky for our neighbors.
I am far from being an interior decorator, but I do love researching and looking up beautiful interiors. Now that I’m trying to figure out what to do with my son’s big-boy room, I am running into many amazing kid’s spaces. (Oh god Pinterest, what have you done to the internet and my life?) Things aren’t that pretty in my home as it is not all glitz and glam around here. I have a tough time making my home into anything Pinterest worthy as I live in the real world with a tight budget. I oftentimes become paralyzed with fear with every decision I make, and that my friends, don’t look so good.
My son’s room is no where near the size of this one, but my face turned green with envy as I scrolled through these pictures by The Animal Print Shop. How I wish I could have been a part of Animal Print Shop Nursery Project, but alas, the inspiration drawn from these pictures will have to suffice!
Currently, his room is a sage-y green color, and I was thinking about painting his room white. It was bright pink when we moved in, so bringing it to white will require multiple coats of paint. I’m tempted to go with this Caldwell Green color from Benjamin Moore, with the camp/outdoors theme. This color can go with any age, and is a nice change from all of the gray that I have in my home and have been seeing everywhere. Can I manage? Will it happen? Well, August is my target month, so let’s see what comes out from this petrified brain of mine.
