ROOMS TO GROW FOR KIDS!

Over the weekend I was thrilled to see my two youngest sons’ bedrooms featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution!

Although I was originally contacted to feature my oldest son’s room, they featured an interview they did with him instead!

So now I know he wants a different color on his walls!

Also, they asked for a few tips on decorating a child’s room and here are a few that I gave

*Hold off shopping at stores or in departments that are specifically for children

*In a little girls room, make her feel like a princess by adding a chandelier

*Shop thrift stores for an old dresser to use as a changing table so it can be used once the child is well beyond the diaper stage

*Don’t be afraid of color, but don’t go wild with it.  Yes, children like color, but it can be brought into the room in other ways than on the walls!

*Give your kids a canvas and paint and let them create their own art for their room

And look who my son was excited to see next to his picture

Erika Ward of BluLabel Bungalow! He couldn’t wait to take his paper to school!

I’m very grateful to be included in an article with other talented women.  It was a great weekend!
