My Room: Quinten

Lancaster, PA

Here's a great idea; avoid the crowds and sales tax and shop in your pajamas. Michael tells us more: We wanted an eclectic mix of old and new and so we started shopping right in our own home. About half of the items we simply pulled from other rooms.

Going with a grey and red scheme made it kid and adult friendly at the same time (although finding bedding was a nightmare in that scheme, Bananafish's Jungle Gym was just the right fit). Taking the closet doors off and making a changing nook was the perfect solution to the amount of furniture in the small space. We made a family tree mobile from a tree branch and vintage lockets. Each style locket and the length of the string determine the relationship to Quinten. Giving it a spin before naptime keeps him occupied.

Thanks Michael! Readers, find Michael at Anticipate Invitations.
