Most of you know I love to paint and change things up in our home. I basically have DIY ADD. It’s a real thing. No really, it is. And the only way to treat it is to give in and go with the urge to decorate till my heart’s content.
I’ve painted and repainted pretty much every room in our home, and I love painting and decorating so much it’s hard to stop once I get started. Does this ever happen to you? My kids rooms are no exception. They’re constantly growing and changing, and I love it when I can change up their rooms a little to reflect a little of their personality at the time.
Right now my son’s room still has big bold stripes on the wall, and the color scheme is still turquoise, teal, orange, and some bright green thrown in.
Pretty much the only thing that has changed is his bed and bedding. He now has a full size bed in his room, and we moved the twin bed into my daughter’s room after she outgrew her crib last year. The bigger bed, meant new bedding, just in the same color scheme. But I’m already in the mood to update his room, and I found tons of inspiration from the Land of Nod.
My son is only 4 but he is at that age where he is obsessed with dinosaurs. If he’s not watching a show about dinosaurs on Netflix, then he’s playing with his dinosaurs, or pretending to be a dinosaur himself. This When Dinosaurs Roamed The Earth Bedding from the Land of Nod would probably make his whole year.
Of course, if I had my way he would have the Faculty Mixer Bedding (Below). I love the subtle colors and I could definitely see this bedding being perfect for him as he was a little older.
I’d paint his walls, get him a cute chair for his room, and maybe even this awesome dresser too. It’s got the perfect mix of vintage/mod look that I’d love for his room. And I love any kind of storage for a kid’s room that hides away toys, clothes, and messes, don’t you?
My daughter’s room is still a work in progress. But isn’t that just how things go with girls? I want to find the perfect mix of happy, sassy, and whimsical for her room. After seeing this room and the As You Wish Arched Headboard in the Santa Maria Desert Flower print below, I knew this would be exactly what I’d want my little girls room to look like. Right down to the bedding and the furniture and that lamp! (Can I just say how much I love this room?!)
Seriously, if I won the Land of Nod’s Win A Room Sweepstakes (more info at bottom of post), I don’t know which room I would choose to do, my daughter’s or my sons. Maybe I’d make the Land Of Nod designers pick for me, because there are just some decisions that shouldn’t be left in the hands of a gal with DIY ADD and money to spend.
My husband is lucky that there isn’t a Land of Nod too close to us, because I’d probably spend enough time there that I’d be on a first name basis with the employees. Unfortunately for him, there is a brand new and shiny Land of Nod opening up at the South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, on May 31, 2013. I say unfortunate for him because I happen to go down to Costa Mesa for work trips, often enough where this might be a problem. ;) And since I’m going to be in the area that week, I’ve got a hot little invitation to the VIP Grand Opening Party the night before. I see my car being loaded up with plenty of goodies before I head back home.
If you’re in the Southern California area be sure to check out the new Land of Nod store at the South Coast Plaza, and if you’re not in the are, check them out online. They’ve got great décor that any kid would love to have for their room.
