Star Wars Decor

My husband has a thing for Star Wars [gee, what guy doesn’t?].  He has a few tees and some little figurines [that we keep in his upstairs office – aka out of sight] and he and Ava have Star Wars battles with the lightsabers he bought her.  A little bit of novelty can be fun.

Like this print from Restyle Prints that I bought & framed and allowed into our living room.

I actually kind of like this Imperial Forces Wallpaper from Super7.

And this nursery featured on Apartment Therapy?  Almost makes me want to make another baby.

Another bedroom – by Mary of Quite Contrary.

Decorating w/ Gray

Gray has been a popular neutral for awhile, but some people are still really reluctant to see it as anything other than drab.  I love gray – it’s the color of our bedroom walls and a large portion of my wardrobe.  To me, a gray room is elegant and cool and it goes great with bright accents or other neutrals.  Perfect for someone [like me] that likes to change things up a lot.  And you aren’t just limited to a gray living or bed room.  Gray looks great anywhere…

Blog for Digs – My Childhood Bedroom

Today’s post is part of Blog for Digs, a charity blogging event for Dwell with Dignity [“a non-profit group of interior designers and volunteers dedicated to creating soothing, inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty”].  To learn more about how you can help make a difference, click HERE.

My childhood bedroom was …. a complete mess.  My brother and I had a playroom downstairs for all of our toys, but that didn’t seem to help keep my room from becoming a disaster zone.  As much as I am a neat freak now, back then I was NOT.  Underneath all the books, papers, and [mostly] clothes was a little wooden desk that sat facing a window with a view of the cornfield.  I used to sit and read Sweet Valley High or Trixie Belden books, write in my diary, and write horrible horrible poetry.  The walls were covered in some old purple textured wallpaper and I seem to remember that I made some weird “sculpture” on the wall next to my bed with a bunch of belts.  I had a huge white bookshelf in my room filled with books, cassette tapes, magazines, etc.  There was a Michael Jackson poster hanging on the back of my door [the one where he’s wearing all white and I think he had a yellow sweater tied around his neck] and I’m sure there must have been some Corey Haim and Mark Paul Gosselear [who is still hot btw] posters up somewhere too.  I also had a secret door in the back of my closet that opened into a room in our old farmhouse that we never used.  It had never been remodeled and was very creepy.  The one thing I always wished I had was a canopy bed.

Like this “Coraline Canopy Bed” from PB Teen.  I might have even draped some sheer fabric over some of the posts … oh who am I kidding? – Pre-teen me would have used it as one more place to toss my clothes.  Still, I always wanted one.  A canopy bed just seemed so fairytale-esque.  But I survived without it and eventually I picked up all my clothes and papers and tucked them neatly into files and drawers [this only happened within the last few years].  No more belts or teen idol posters on the walls – just some antlers, actual artwork with frames, and a large white pendant lamp adorn the bedroom now.  If I could go back, I think I’d keep that bedroom clean … maybe then I would have gotten a canopy bed.
