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.
