Heather recently looked back on Snapshots of Your Childhood Home and it reminded us of our now-grown brother's bedroom from our teenage years. It's now a guest bedroom with a mix of his old grunge music tastes and our mother's preference for cozy country decor. The styles collide here in a high-texture accident of guitars and roses...

Being a grunge music fan and fledgling guitarist, he plastered his bedroom wall in rock music imagery when our parents turned us loose to decorate our bedrooms in whatever way we chose. Today, the black wall remains but the bedding has been changed to a rose-print quilt. When we visit our parents' home, we're amused by the unlikely juxtaposition but also pleasantly surprised by the clashing patterns.

Is your childhood bedroom still intact, partially so, or completely remodeled? We're intrigued by this limbo between present and past and would love to hear your stories about the state of your childhood bedrooms in the comments below.
