I find decorating a child's room pretty difficult. I have images in my head of what I would like it to look like, but let's be honest: T is two. The last time you saw her room, it looked like this:
But now she is getting taller and we needed to extend her bed, which meant it could no longer jet out from the wall like it used to. Her bed is expandable, so the mattress extension added about another 14'' of length to the bed, leaving her with little room to play. She needed more play space, which meant the most logical way to arrange her room was to put her bed in the corner. (Hmm, now I really want to watch Dirty Dancing. Nobody puts Baby in a corner). We tried putting the bed in different corners, moving the dresser and bookshelf, but ultimately decided we liked her current setup (it was most efficient to have the dresser by the closet) and choose to just move the bed. So now it looks like so:
Here is a close up of her desk. We would like to do something on this wall since it's a big blank canvas at this point, but for now- the little owl print above her desk will have to do.
You may have also noticed that the artwork above T's bed has changed. The original artwork that was there was done by our dear friend, Charlie, but since it was glass, neither of us were comfortable with it being directly over T's bed. So, we took a piece of canvas artwork and hung it in it's place. This piece was done by a good friend of ours, Katie. She did this piece for B years ago, and we were waiting for the right place to hang it. T absolutely loves it and we thought it would give her room a little more originality. Win win situation. Every day T points out something new she see's in the painting. I love the fact she is so creative and imaginative.
T's room is still nowhere near where I'd like it to be, but it's getting there. The most important thing is that she loves it, and she does. She has so much more space to spread out and play, dance, and pretend- and that's all that really matters in our book.
