Almost five years ago, back in February of 2010, I painted horizontal stripes in one of our spare bedrooms. At the time we were heavily invested (emotionally I mean) in our Ethiopian adoption process. I was so gung-ho to paint those stripes - just hoping and wishing to start our family with a sweet little boy or girl from a land far away. Sigh. International adoption in Ontario moves at the slowest pace of all time. Just sayin'.
Fast forward to today. We've got Coopaloops in our teeny bedroom and Little Diego on the way. We're still on the wait list for adoption (with no end in sight) but we're running out of room! For now,I've decided to move Cooper into the empty, stripey room. I don't have the heart to paint over the stripes though, so I'll be working with those in my little design plan. :)
Here's what I have so far:
I know it's nothing too exciting but I think it's a nice, neutral start. I can always add some colour and interest with a quilt, pillows, wall art, and toys.
Since I was basically out of commission for the past 3 1/2 months (brutal morning sickness + my gimpy leg) I'm kind of running out of time to get things done.
So, when Restoration Hardware Baby advertised that everything in their online store was 20% off I went ahead and ordered two items on my wishlist:
It's the Millbrook Iron Bed and the Henley Stripe Duvet Cover. Since I just love the lamps that I bought from RH, I'm super duper excited to get these items in the mail next week.
And three cheers to me for deciding on something quickly for once. A due date deadline certainly helps!
What do you think of my choices so far? Any other suggestions for the Coopster's new room?
