J’s room is a space that I constantly feel like I’m trying to keep up with. Where A’s room is a large box, J’s room is smaller and awkwardly shaped. A also doesn’t like anything to change in his room, where J is more open to updates. I updated it last year, and found myself again this year, struggling to keep up with his massive Lego buildings and art pieces. I’ve realized that we need to move up, instead of keep adding longer furniture. I’m also planning to re-paint in a cooler gray, to lighten the room and help it transform from little kid to big kid.
I love this room color:
And the character items here, J would love:
And I have ordered several Target items, and have planned a trip to IKEA to pick up a few more storage and decorating solutions:
There’s a lot of white in my choices and that’s because J has several rich mahogany dressers and a smaller book case in his room already. Instead of trying to match to these pieces I go in the complete opposite direction with contrasting whites. I’m also bringing in some navy and blue tones with a couple pops of orange….and not just because we’re Auburn fans! I’m excited to pull it all together over the next few months and can’t wait to share the finished result!
