Interior Design...sort of!

The Girl is not particularly happy with her bedroom. I can't blame her. While it is plenty large enough, it doesn't work. It has far too many obstacles and no good bed placement options. She has, in her room, 3 doors, all of which open in. Additionally, she has a large window that is roughly 75" long and *not* centered on the wall. Setting up this room is a nightmare at best.

The other day, I was browsing one of my new favorite sites, Pinterest. There, I found a cool website on which you can design your room. It is called The Make Room and it is from Icovia. I went to the site and set to work designing The Girl's room. I went upstairs and took meticulous measurements to ensure all would fit. Here is what I designed:The Girl really likes the design, although we've already modified it some. We have decided *not* to put a desk between the closet doors because it is too crowded. Also, her dresser is not as large as the one pictured, but that is because she needs a new, larger one. At this point, there is no chair in the corner yet. Again, we don't have one, but she definitely knows what she wants.

The "rug" in the middle of the floor is a cool shaggy blanket. The color is the same bright green as on her bedding, shown below.

We are, for the most part, pleased with how it all came together. The bed is pretty close to the door when it is opened, but there isn't much we can do about that. One closet door does not open all the way, but The Girl doesn't really use that side much and, without putting a desk in, she will be able to access it with no trouble.

Next up...The Boy's room!

  1. what if you take off the closet doors and replace them with either louver folding doors or with curtains?
