Thanks friends for all the kind comments on the boy’s room!  As promised, here’s a recap of all the projects that went into the space over the last six months, with questions answered plus the source guide.

I love the rug. Where can I find it?  ~ Maria, Beth & Brenda

I do too, it’s my favorite accent in the room.  The cotton rug adds both a boyish stripe and a coastal feel.  The rug is the 6’ x 9’ Woven Caravan Stripe by Dash & Albert.

Boy’s Room Tour

March 8th, 2011

I’ve been falling asleep in this space for a few nights, I just can’t help it!  I find snuggling up with my little guy in this room late at night completely irresistible.  It’s here where I learn all his secrets, his battle plans, and if I listen carefully, the location of buried treasure.  It seems everyone in our house has been spending more hours in this room lately, especially the resident to whom it belongs, our five year old son.

Last year we said goodbye to the soft blue nursery walls, and upgraded to a more mature, more intense teal blue, and the completion of the board and batten treatment last week enhances the color even more.  I wanted it to be a bright clean happy place, one where he could adventure and explore.  A room where he could not only display everything he loves right this very moment, but one that would also adapt to his changing interests over time.

Want the grand tour of our boy’s room?   Come on in!

Fun New Series!

March 7th, 2011

Greetings all, happy Monday, I’m just putting the finishing touches on the boy’s room, then I need to snap some photos.  I can’t wait to show it to you!  It’s all finished just in time for his 5th Birthday (which is today, hooray)!  

Meanwhile, I thought it would be so fun to have a series of link parties throughout the spring and summer with topics for discussion.  These will be specific subjects, and I hope you’ll join me in a party or two.  I’m calling each of them a ‘Fair Weather Forum’ because they are all related to topics specific to these seasons.  Consider this your invitation to link up your best tips or latest project on the topic of the day.fair weather label

These ten link parties will take place on Mondays twice a month.

Here is the schedule of topics:

March 28th:  Spring Decorating & Cleaning

April 11th:  Easter Ideas

April 25th:  All Things Paint!

May 16th:   Outdoor Décor & Entertaining

May 30th:   Garage & Yard Sales

June 13th:   Summer Activities (Favorites & With Kids)

June 27th:  Fourth of July Ideas

July 11th:  Favorite Vacation Spots

July 25th:  Gardening

August 15th:  BBQs and Picnics

 

I’ll be writing up a post on the topic on the scheduled day of the forum, or featuring a new project.   I hope you’ll join in on the fun, and link up with your ideas, plus see what others have to say on the topic.  It should be a great sharing and learning experience.  

Mark your calendars, see you there!

xoxo,
