Alright…. I KNOW I *just* finished slaving over two handmade quilts for Hudson’s room…. they’re darling. They’re stitched with love. They’re my works of art.
But….. I still have yet to do anything with his room that he or I love. He still has his baby artwork on the wall and I have yet to come up with a “theme” that really goes with anything he is interested in.
I know… that sounds stupid. But… I want his bedroom to reflect him. My first thoughts were either a nautical theme or a solar system theme. Both would work with the lime, navy and blues. However… he doesn’t care about either of those things. At all.
What he really cares about…. is Fire Trucks. He loves ALL kinds of trucks but he seems particularly drawn to fire trucks. He loves Red from Disney’s cars. He always picks out Fire Truck books and Fire Truck toys. We have a zillion Fire Trucks around here and he loves to play with them.
And… I love this room from Pottery Barn.
I could easily paint the Fire Truck Canvas. It’d look perfect above his long dresser. And the red window treatments… Target. He has a dark wood bed, a chocolate brown rug and the walls… I could do the same thing we did in our dining room, paint the panels/trim a warm white…. paint the top a dark brown and get him some new bedding. I know… I know….. ridiculous to redo his bedroom when he had two perfectly good, handmade by mama quilts. I’d still keep them. We can never have enough quilts (and I even contemplated selling one on Etsy because I don’t really need two identical quilts…. anyone interested?).
What do you think…. am I flippin nuts?
