Name: Lennon (2)
Location: Knoxville, Tennessee
We live in a 3 bedroom, 1200 square foot home, so we don't have an extra room for a play room, although pretty much the whole house feels like a playroom since we dedicate a space for him to play in every corner of our home. Lennon's room is my favorite room in our home. It is fun, colorful and full of things we love. This room is usually a mess, but it is a good sign knowing he loves to play in his room!
As far as decorating it, we don't like to stick with themes, our decorating motto is, "if we love it, we buy it (or make it!)" It doesn't matter if it doesn't "match," we decorate with the things we love, and that makes it our style. For Lennon's room we added accents of art, design, Star Wars, super heroes, The Beatles, cats, and color. Eventually his room will change when he starts adding more of the things he likes.
I love to make art with him and I wanted to dedicate a space to display the art works he makes. I just tape them with washi tape so I can change them as we make new art. Lennon loves books, so we have been growing his book collection and we make sure he can have access to them in different parts of his room.
Everything in his room is budget friendly, I would say the biggest splurge was the rocking chair and it was worth it. The furniture is from Target, IKEA and Walmart. Many accents are from Etsy or DIYs.
My favorite thing in his room is his castle tent. We read books inside and he also takes his mid-day nap in it. My second favorite is his rocker chair, it was the first thing I bought after learning I was pregnant.
