Drool... so pretty!

I am not one to spend these kinds of dollars on things for the kids room... but wow. It's tempting! Maybe I can paint something like this for Cyan and Logan's room.

I have enjoyed everything I have seen from Amenity Organics so far. Probably my favorite though, is this:

This set, I may actually dole out the cash for eventually. Our bedroom always gets forgotten. I think most parents are like this. In lieu of getting nice stuff for our own rooms, we tend to find the cutest thing for our kids rooms. Don and I have the quilt on our bed that was given to us about 10 years ago. It was on the back of a friends couch before that, so it is completely sun bleached on one side. The pattern is nice, but all the quilt pieces are now falling apart. I have a really nice winter duvet and cover from Ikea that we use in the winter, but in the summer, I gotz nothing nice to go in there so it kinda looks like a garage sale in our bedroom all summer (when we entertain the most, of course).

Don mentioned that he really liked the combination of purple and grey for our bedroom (and the fact that he had an opinion was quite amazing, so I am running with it). All our winter stuff is done in red. So I was thinking that I could do the summer stuff in purple... and then do a dark greyish taupe on the walls with tea white door and window jams. We have a VERY sunny big window in our room, so I think that would look nice.

Those are gorgeous! Love the duvet... and the colors are so pretty. I splurged on new bedding last summer and I can't say I regret it. It made a big difference for the entire room. I love the purple... it looks so relaxing and calm.

If your hubby is anything like mine, I would go for it while he's interested. You are right about the parent's room. Heck, even my wardrobe is old and faded. :o)
