It's time for some pillow talk, literally. I have sorely neglected the kids' bedroom (and our own for that matter) since we moved in. They have dressers, they have mattresses on rails. These things are in a room that is surely 200+ square feet. Huge room, tiny stuff.
Judith actually has a bed that I found at a thrift store when she was a wee one. We set her bed up when she got her twin mattress and when we moved I said, "let's keep it in the attic so I can paint it". It's now some 7 months later and where's the bed ... you guessed it.
Another excuse for my procrastination (humor me here) is that I wanted to get a bed for Lennon too. Putting work into Judes bed and leaving Lennon out just didn't seem right. So last weekend as I am killing time in a neighboring town between photo shoots and I spot a bed frame outside a little antique shop. I went in, asked and ended up walking away with it for $10.00!
Now all I can think about is painting the kids' beds and fixing their room up a little... it will still be sparse, but I think it will add some much needed personality.
I asked Judith what color she wants her bed and she promptly decided on hot pink ... I'm so down for hot pink. I then asked Lennon and he's set on purple ... purple? I'm going to take them both to the paint store this afternoon and let them pick their colors. We'll see what Lennon chooses.
Here are some inspiring kids rooms that are tiding me over until this afternoon when we actually start picking out colors!

So, what do your kids' rooms look like? Any spectacular design advice for destructive urchins?
