Inspiring Spaces

May brought us rooms that all seem bright and cheerful and yet, each one unique and different. From soft pinks to bright yellows and oranges- each one reflects the lively, little ones that live there quite well.

My Room: Lilla: "The walls too, were already a bright yellow with some drawings...I just added more drawings for fun! The hard part decorating this room was that here in Brazil we don't have closets, so a big part of the room is always taken over by armoires. As it was already a small room, we tried hard to keep a nice space for her to play and grow."

My Room: Cassandra: "I wanted to create an outdoor scene that was very colorful and kid-friendly that she can grow with if she chooses. The mural was originally only going to be the one long wall. But as I got going, I ended up wrapping it around to 3 of the 4 and painted a small design over the side of her crib."

H is for Harper's Room: "'Choose things that you love, and it will come together,' says Harper's mom. And this room certainly has come together- not in a forced, overly planned way, but in an organic way with lots of special touches from mom and dad."

Home Office Turned Sky High Nursery: "Joymich has done a great job making this office into a nursery. It's not in a room with 4 walls like many nurseries traditionally are, but instead is in the upper area of their loft. It looks like a great place to be a kid, no matter how old and we wanted to give a final congrats for the transition!"

A Definitely, Indisputably, Not-Girly Shared Room : "I think sometimes adults create rooms for kids that are more pleasing for adults than they are for kids. I didn't want a room that screamed "this is for small kids," but I also didn't want a room that didn't reflect my boys. I don't really like transportation (planes, cars, trains, etc.) in rooms, but that is what the boys wanted."
