the boys room
I have been loving using the phrase ' boys, lets...... get dressed, go to bed, get coats on etc. With the two of them getting closer in ability & interest it was necessary to change their room around a bit. They've been sharing a room for a year now, except with a huge crib taking up more space than it needed to. So a little mid-winter shake up, crib taken down with the help of my little guys and a new toddler bed installed. A dresser switcheroo and we have the boys room. With my tendencies it will probably be moved a hundred times over but I actually like this configuration of toys ( or lack of ), mementos & cozy animals to make their room soft & warm. I tend to keep toys our of their room but keep plenty of books around. I like the idea that this space can be used as a play area if needed but when it's time to rest there's little else to do but look at a book in your bed , or your brothers. I had a vintage shower curtain in my stash that I hung as a winter curtain, it's a pastoral scene with large birch trees & arborvitaes ( you can see a bit in the last photo) . I love it, one of those hot damn! moments, it brings spring into the room during these cold days. Felix's corner looks positively 50's with his quilt & dark wood bed & dresser, both are family heirlooms which we treasure. I know these boys won't be able to fit in a room together for long, literally they will be too tall, so I'm tickled that they love to share one now and each has a space of their own.
