We're making progress on the kids' rooms. Well, I should say Kenneth is (and a pretty awesome sidekick!). He's been installing the floors, and I'm more than a tad bit excited to have it all done! I've been trying to decide between comfy carpet and hardwood for quite some time, and we opted with the wood for a few reasons. I love the cleanliness of wood floors, I love colorful accent rugs, but really, I'm allergic to dust. And it makes winter so much more bearable without all that carpet in the bedrooms.
We are going with a white washed bamboo floors....super bright and light (I can hear the opposition now!) But the bamboo is incredibly durable, and after a good year of weighing out the pros and cons to having nearly white floors in the kids' rooms, the pro's won out big time. When we bought the house, one of the main buying points is that it had wonderful natural light, and I want to bring that out as much as I can. Happy, happy and bright. Good for the soul.
But while we are waiting to finish up, I thought I'd show you some pictures that are inspiring me right now. I've been using Pinterest to collect my inspiration photos (keeps me so organized and ready to make decisions on what I want to make/look for as we are putting the rooms together).
Here's a few of my favorites. You can see more here.
We have 2 rooms that we are redoing, and currently the idea is to have all 3 in one room. I'll let you know how that ends up going...but since we've had to squash them all in one space for the past couple weeks as we've been painting and flooring, they are just loving being all together! And I love it too.
PS: Do you have Pinterest Boards with Kids Spaces? I'd love to see your boards! Link up in the comments if you do!
